Political speeches dominated the Oscars on Sunday night with winners lining up to outdo each other as they spoke out against President Donald Trump's immigration ban.
Oscars host Jimmy Kimmel kicked things off when he fired several shots at Trump during his opening monologue.
But as the night progressed, actors, directors and designers quickly started dedicating their Academy Awards to 'the immigrants', spoke out against the Mexican wall and went as far as calling Trump's immigration policy 'inhumane'.
While Alessandro Bertolazzi is not a well known name outside the film industry, the makeup artist was the first Oscar winner to mention politics in his acceptance speech.
The Italian dedicated his win in the makeup and hair-styling category to 'all the immigrants'.
Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway, stars of 1967's classic Bonnie and Clyde, presented the Oscar for best picture.
'Our goal in politics is the same in our goal in art, and that's to get to the truth,' Beatty said on stage.
He said the movies nominated 'show us the increasing diversity in our community and our respect for diversity and freedom all over the world.' http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4262894/Hollywood-unleashes-political-Oscars-speeches.html
