At Saturday’s Independent Spirit Awards, host Aubrey Plaza paid tribute to LGBTQ representation and then brought out the Gay Men’s Choir of Los Angeles to “shine a spotlight on some of the gayest  moments in other films that you may not have realized were gay.”

The song that unfolds is hilarious and full of terrific reframings of moments from 2019 films, particularly at the expense of the kid from Marriage Story

But the entire performance rockets into another dimension of amazing entirely as the song pivots to a tribute to Laura Dern who, from the audience, can’t contain her delight and embraces the song with her whole heart. 

Throw in a guest spot from Alex Newell and you’ve got a tremendous moment that the Oscars will be completely unable to top on Sunday night.
