During Lady Gaga’s GIMME THAT OSCAR!! performance of “Til It Happens To You“, a song about college campus abuse that she may or may not have written with Diane Warren, a large group of sexual assault survivors joined her on stage. It was a pretty powerful moment. Even those annoying-ass minions were like “This moment is making me feel things.”
One person who was definitely feeling it was Best Actress winner Brie Larson, who felt it so hard she gave them all hugs as they exited the stage.

It sort of made sense that she would be the one to start a receiving line of hugs; Brie was nominated for portraying a sexual abuse survivor in Room. Or maybe Brie is just that kind of nice? It wouldn’t surprise me; anyone named after such a delicious cheese can’t be that bad.
Here’s more of Brie and Gaga from last night. Gaga, you tried it, but nobody does formal peek-a-boo pants better than Demi Moore.
