The star, who won for The People vs. O.J. Simpson said: “It wasn’t a tough decision to come up with what I wanted to say. I wanted to have an opportunity to mention the inclusivity that I think is required right now, in general … I don’t think silence is golden at this particular time. I think if you have a platform to say something in front of a large audience, you should take the opportunity.”
