Last night was a victory for journalists everywhere – Spotlight was named Best Picture at the 88th Academy Awards. The movie has rejuvenated an entire industry that many believed to be on it’s last legs. Here are a few reasons why the movie Spotlight is absolutely essential to journalism with the help of a bunch of GIFs from hit reality television show, RuPaul’s Drag Race that will make you scream, “YAAASSSS KWEEEENNNN.”

Spotlight tells the real-life story of a committed team of investigative journalists from the Boston Globe uncovering a city-wide scandal.



The movie has revitalized the nation’s belief in reporting. People are excited about real journalism again.



Spotlight shows us just how important journalistic integrity is. The Boston Globe reporters worked tirelessly to stay as thorough and as diligent as possible.



The Oscar-winning film showed a team who’s main interest was not fame, but staying committed to keeping their story as in-depth and detailed as possible. They left no stone unturned.



Spotlight reminds the world how influential print media can be. One thought-provoking story can inspire the entire world.



The movie also highlights the importance of holding those in power accountable for their actions. The responsibility to lead must never be forgotten.



The Spotlight team uncovered a scandal that changed the Catholic Church forever – a scandal that, if it were not for the Boston Globe reporters, may never have been revealed.



Real, powerful journalism shows the world just how essential an objective point of view really is. The truth must always be told, no matter what the circumstances are.



Spotlight displays how satisfying months and months and months of hard work and unwavering commitment can be.



Hopefully more inspiring stories like this will be told thanks to the the success of “Spotlight!”
