Andrew Garfield gave an energetically heartwarming speech while he accepted his award. He referenced an ongoing Supreme Court choice identifying with a Colorado bread cook to who declined to make a cake for a same-sex wedding.

“So, let’s just bake a cake for everyone who wants a cake to be baked.”

There were some expected victories and then some surprises that made us go wow. Mr. Robert DeNiro made our day when he cursed Mr. Trump saying, “f**k Trump” twice before introducing Springsteen’s performance. He literally received a standing ovation for that.

“First, I wanna say, ‘f**k Trump.’ It’s no longer ‘Down with Trump,’ it’s ‘f**k Trump.'”
