Red carpet glamour, superstar ballads and acceptance speeches get us all choked up each year when we watch the Oscars. Amidst all the larger-than-life gestures, we hopefully gain some bit of knowledge and understanding about global concerns. Movies are meant to make us think, of course. We also heard several acceptance speech messages reminding us that, no, all is still not right when it comes to equality and human rights.
