Andrew Garfield's Acceptance Speech at 2018 Tony Awards

Andrew Garfield's Impassioned Tonys Speech About the LGBTQ+ Community Will Make You Tear Up

Andrew Garfield is currently blowing audiences away with his performance in Broadway's Angels in America, but it was his impassioned speech during the Tony Awards that really made people tear up. While accepting the award for best performance by an actor in a leading role in a play, the 34-year-old dedicated his first Tony win to the LGBTQ+ community. Aside from deeming his role as Prior as the "profound privilege" of his life, he also took a moment to recognise "the countless LGBTQ people who have fought and died" for the right to "live and love as we are created to." See his beautiful speech above.
