Ben Affleck is just oozing pure awesome!

The political-minded crusader for good went to Capitol Hill to testify before the Senate State, Foreign Operations and Related Programs Subcommittee.

Flanked by fellow world-saving hero Bill Gates, Ben began his passionate speech about getting more U.S. foreign assistance to further economic development programs in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

He loves the Congo and has been doing charity work there ever since his first visit seven years ago.

Before getting too far into his speech, he had to stop and call out his fellow Batman co-star… Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.)!

Senator Leahy actually has a bit of a Batman history!

He was a background actor in 1997's Batman & Robin, had his face grabbed and threatened with a knife by Heath Ledger's Joker in The Dark Knight and even had a speaking role in The Dark Knight Rises on the Wayne Enterprises board!

So Ben's little joke went over pretty well.

Check out the video (below) to see Ben Affleck being his wonderful, charismatic self, but also feel free to listen to his entire speech. He's a smart man with a lot of good things to say.

So inspiring!!!

It's been about four months since Leelah Alcorn's tragic death, so it makes us so happy to see her memory being remembered in such an uplifting way.

A 13-year-old named Tom Sosnik decided to come out as a trans man to his classmates via an emotional speech.

He urged his peers to educate themselves about the trans community and let them know it was safe to ask him any questions they had about his transition.

An acceptance speech provides the perfect opportunity to throw a little shade.

Many celebrities have used the mic to snub a frenemy or straight up rival.

At the 2014 BET Awards, Nicki Minaj totally threw a barb at Iggy Azalea(the two have long standing beef) that insuated Iggy Igg doesn't write her own songs.

Of course, the ultimate moment of award show shade goes to Kanye West, who infamously interrupted Taylor Swift's acceptance speech. Kanye will never live that moment down!!
