The American legend, Serena Williams recently walked on the red carpet of the 91st Academy Awards at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California. At the Oscars, she introduced the film, ‘A Star Is Born’ which stars Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper on the lead roles and it was one of the eight movies up for recognition as Best Picture.
Serena Williams paid her obeisance to the character of Ally, which is played by Lady Gaga. She delivered an address regarding the dreams of an individual and the perseverance which is involved in fulfilling the dream.
“When we’re young, we all have dreams of what we can accomplish in life. Having a dream is easy. Making it come true is hard,” Serena Williams narrated. “Whether that dream is becoming an actor, a tennis player or a singer, like Ally in ‘A Star Is Born’. In tonight’s nominee for Best Picture, we see through Ally’s eyes the highs and the lows on the journey to stardom.” She concluded by certifying the choices of career and love which many professionals in their respective field must exhibit. “There’s the rush of fame, the pressure of success – and the heartache that comes with sacrificing love for career… or career for love.”
