Oscars: Victory for sexual abuse victims

Listen to this article

Great night at the Oscars.

Sylvester Stallone didn’t win.

The Vice President talked about the victims of sexual abuse.

Lady Gaga sung a stunning song about the victims and survivors of sexual abuse.

And the Best Picture went to Spotlight about the sexual abuse of children at the hands of Catholic priests.

I wonder what was going through Stallone’s head as he watched from the audience? Perhaps he had a flashback to an alleged incident at a Las Vegas Hotel in 1986 with a 16-year-old child.

    A bigger victory might have been Lady Gaga’s song winning but yes it was gratitfying to see Stallone passed over in an Oscar ceremony highlighting rape, “honor killings” and sexual abuse.
