“Lady Gaga was the epitome of kindness and honor," wrote Tracy Kornet.
Even though Lady Gaga is climbing to the top of the ladder of success, she doesn't hesitate to help others along the way.
The singer is receiving praise for her “kind” gesture towards Liza Minnelli at the 2022 Oscars, according to the Independent. Towards the end of the ceremony that took place on March 27, 2022, Gaga and Minnelli appeared on stage together to present the Best Picture award, which was won by Sian Heder’s CODA.
Before presenting the award, Gaga started off her speech by praising the Cabaret actor. "The public, they love you,” she said while looking at Minnelli.
This is like a lesson in how to facilitate older people while honouring who they are.— Naomi O'Leary (@NaomiOhReally) March 28, 2022
What a class act by @ladygaga with legend Liza Minnelli.
The conferred whispers of "I gotcha" "I know" picked up by the mikes make it especially touching.pic.twitter.com/2JOWyrTQxn
“I’m finally honored to present the final award of the evening with the true showbusiness legend,” Gaga continued. “She’s celebrating the 50th anniversary of Cabaret. Oscar-winning actress, Liza Minnelli.”
Minnelli won the award for Best Actress for her leading role in Cabaret in 1973.
During the entire time the two of them shared the space, Gaga and Minnelli were seen laughing, appreciating one other, and holding hands. But, the moment that won the hearts of everyone watching the show was when the 76-year-old actor was trying to read her lines displayed on the teleprompter, Gaga leaned over to her and comfortingly said: “I got you.”
Minnelli instantly responded by saying: “I know.”
Honestly, people couldn't stop raving about how special that moment between them was, and several of them took to social media to show appreciation for the House of Gucci actor. “Lady Gaga was the epitome of kindness and honor: ‘I’ve got you.’ Allowing a trembling and confused Liza Minnelli to feel like a star. Pure generosity of soul!” actor Tracy Kornet wrote.
Lady Gaga is such a sweetheart and a penultimate professional. So hard to see how much Liza Minelli was struggling, but Gaga handled it perfectly. #Oscars— Lyndsay (@lyndsayj) March 28, 2022
A Black Lady Sketch Show actor Yvette Nicole Brown added: “That ‘I’ve got you.’ And ‘I know’ exchange between @ladygaga and #LizaMinelli just gave me my whole life!”
“Real moment of the night was Lady Gaga showing absolute kindness, advocacy, and support for Liza Minnelli,” wrote another fan. A third person added: “I admire Lady Gaga for making legends like Tony Bennett and Liza Minelli feel comfortable despite their rapid health decline.”
In case you didn’t already love @ladygaga for being an awesome human being, go back and look at the kindness and gentleness with which she treated Liza Minnelli.— Dia Staines 🇺🇦📚🍓🎭🕰 (@The8treGirl) March 28, 2022
Made for a much better piece of Oscar. Thankfully.
“Oscars today reminds me of why I’m a fan of Lady Gaga. The love and respect she showed Liza Minelli from backstage to stage show how much she deserves all the accolades in the world,” another fan wrote.
Lady Gaga surely knows how to give love and respect to those who deserve it, which explains why she has so many loyal followers. Cheers to Gaga being an example to everyone.
