Liza & Gaga moment at the Oscars
OK, I need to rant about something...
Is there a reason that award shows love to bring out elderly actors/performers who are perhaps not in the best health for A Moment on stage? I love Liza Minnelli so much, don't get me wrong, and I don't want her to NOT be able to have moments like reading Best Picture at the Oscars in 2022. Hell, if anyone has earned it, it's her. But it was really sad and tough to see her that way — I didn't realize that she was using a wheelchair and perhaps struggling with cognition (? - I don't know really what was going on there but she seemed to be having a hard time.)
And this isn't about me, I get it. You're probably like, Bread, deal with it! So you were uncomfy! But no, it's not that. Liza genuinely seemed overwhelmed too! And adding more stress to her doesn't seem like the most productive or helpful thing? I don't know, I just don't get it.
With that said, I thought it was a VERY sweet moment between Gaga and Liza when Gaga leaned over and told her "I got you" and Liza said "I know." It made me tear up actually. Gaga is so good and kind and patient (if you haven't watched her interviews w/ and about Tony Bennett, I highly encourage you do).
What did you think of the moment?
