Graham Moore Acceptance Speech 'Oscars 2015': Writer Admits He Tried Committing Suicide [VIDEO]
The Imitation Game won an Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay given to Graham Moore who gave a heartbreaking yet inspiring speech.
When Moore walked on stage he gave his thanks to everyone who was involved with the film, but he also revealed a personal detail about his life growing up; when he was 16-years-old, he tried to commit suicide.
The writer went on to talk about how he always felt "weird" when he was younger and it took him time to accept that. So he let others know that if they feel unhappy with their own weirdness, that's okay. He also hopes they will continue to encourage others to stay that way.
The audience gave Moore a standing ovation.
