Sam Smith Stood Up For The LGBT Community In His Oscars Acceptance Speech

'I stand here tonight as a proud gay man.'

Superstar Sam Smith took home his very first Oscar -- Best Original Song -- Sunday night alongside Jimmy Napes for their tune, "Writing's On The Wall," from Spectre. It beat out "Earned It" from Fifty Shades of Grey, "Manta Ray" from Racing Extinction, "Simply Song #3" from Youth, and "Til It Happens To You" from The Hunting Ground.

Earlier in the show, Smith thrilled the audience and fans with a dramatic performance of the song. Watch it all go down in the clip below.

"I want to dedicate this to the LGBT community around the world," Smith said in his acceptance speech. "I stand here tonight as a proud gay man, and I hope that we can all stand together as equals one day."

Celebs across the Internet have been voicing their support for Smith ever since.

Congratulations, Sam Smith!
