The Film Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday recognized the year's best in independent movies, with major awards going to The Farewell, Parasite, and the Safdie brothers.

The ceremony took place the night before the Academy Awards, which have been criticized this year for largely ignoring people of color and snubbing films that drew critical acclaim.

The Spirit Awards righted some of those wrongs, and the ceremony also took a moment to highlight LGBTQ representation β€” with a hilarious ode to the gayest film moments you might not realize were gay.

I think we can all agree with @GMCLA that @LauraDern. PERIODT. #SpiritAwards

The Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles provided the heartfelt tribute.

They harmonized about J.Lo pole dancing to Fiona Apple...

...the title of the film Diane...

...and RenΓ©e Zellweger's press tour.

And, of course, they sang about Laura Dern ordering a kale salad...

...Laura Dern dressed slutty in court...

...Laura Dern...


Dern, who was in the audience, was delighted by the first mention of her name, and then absolutely lost it as she caught on to the gag.

She later thanked the chorus, awards organization Film Independent, and writer Jordan Firstman for making the song happen.

Did this...really happen? Thank you @GMCLA @filmindependent and @JTfirstman for making me realize how much I need a choir to go everywhere with me! 🀯β™₯️ #SpiritAwards2020

In conclusion, Laura Dern.
