Los Angeles - Brie Larson hugged all of the 50 sexual assault victims from Lady GaGa's Til It Happens To You Oscars performance.

The Born This Way singer was joined on stage by a number of victims of abuse as she performed her Academy Award-nominated song from the rape documentary The Hunting Ground at the ceremony on Sunday night and Best Actress winner Brie gave each brave person a cuddle as they left the stage.

The beautiful gesture wasn’t broadcast on TV but Chris Gardner, from the Hollywood Reporter, captured the moment with his phone.

Watch it here:

While Brie showed her support at the Dolby theatre, a number of stars took to Twitter to praise the performance of Lady Gaga - who was also a victim of sexual assault when she was just 19.

Pop star Kesha - who accused her producer Dr Luke of sexually abusing her - thanked Gaga for speaking out and said it was "very close to her heart".

Tyra Banks said: "You continue to give me chills @ladygaga. #Oscars My love goes out to all who have been sexually assaulted. #NotYourFault (sic)"

And actress Lindsay Lohan added: "@ladygaga beautiful performance #survivetogether #prayforchildren (sic)"

@ladygaga beautiful performance?? #survivetogether #prayforchildren

Despite the outpouring of support for Gaga and Til It Happens To You, the Best Original Song Oscar went to Jimmy Napes and Sam Smith for Writing's On the Wall from Spectre.
