Lady Gaga’s touching Oscars performance with Liza Minnelli has warmed everyone’s hearts

My heart, oh my heart.

Let’s just say the 94th Academy Awards were… eventful. While the ugliness of the incident (you know the one) and the audience’s reaction to it (which has been described as «sickening» and «gross») cast a shadow over the ceremony, it was the compassionate acts of some very talented and hardworking women that shone through.

The 2022 Oscars, hosted by Amy Schumer, Regina Hall, and Wanda Sykes, feature two shining examples of kindness, beginning with Lady Gaga and Liza Minelli.

Gaga seated Minelli, 76, in her wheelchair as she was introduced to the audience.
«I am honored to present the evening’s final award to a true show business legend. She’s celebrating Cabaret’s 50th anniversary… «Oscar-winning actress Liza Minelli,» Gaga explained.

The audience erupted and applauded the icon, who has had an incredible career and a devoted fan base.

Minelli has had health issues in the past, so fans were relieved to see her on stage.
«What good is sitting alone in your room…?» the Cabaret star once asked.

While the majority of those in attendance at these types of award shows are trained to read from teleprompters, laugh, and applaud on cue, Minnelli struggled with running her lines.

That’s when Gaga swooped in to help Minelli, leaning over and whispering, «I got you,» to which Minelli replied, «I know.»

Upworthy praised Gaga’s compassionate approach to the situation:

«Lady Gaga’s genuine love for the showbiz community’s elders is evident in the care she shows them. Gaga, far from being patronizing or infantilizing, strikes an elegant balance between being helpful and respecting and honoring their dignity.»
Jessica Chastain, who won «Best Actress» for her role as evangelist Tammy Faye Messner, formerly Tammy Faye Baker, in the film «The Eyes of Tammy Faye,» which was produced by her production company Freckle Films, also spread some love.

The film depicts Faye’s «rise, fall, and redemption» as one of the first evangelical Christians to support and accept the LGBTQ community and those suffering from AIDS, as well as to tell them that they are loved exactly as they are.
