Morgan takes the stage and gives a very heartfelt speech. “If you do what you love, you’ll never have to work a day in your life.”

Colin Firth presents Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture Drama to Meryl Streep.   She’s bleeped for saying the word “Shit” and she rambles on endlessly until she’s finally played off.
