Lady Gaga is making a statement with her Oscar nomination. She took to Twitter on Thursday to write a heartfelt note, thanking the Academy for the recognition, and celebrating the impact the song has had on the sexual abuse community.
“This nomination lends a voice to victims and survivors all over the world,” she wrote on an old-school typewriter. “Thank you to THE ACADEMY for recognizing the movement of people who have come together for this film & song in the name of sexual assault.”
“Myself and Diane are simply honored to represent the voices of so many SURVIVORS,” Gaga concluded her tweet.
