Weiss won Directing in a Variety Special for his work on the 2018 Oscars, and more often than not, this is not an award that you see get any recognition at all. That changed today, when near the end of his acceptance speech he got down on one knee and proposed! This was a very sweet moment — not because of the act itself, but the words and the tenderness he put into it. Luckily, she did say yes, since otherwise this could have turned out really badly.
You can watch the full moment below — it’s sweet and it’s special. It’s certainly something that you don’t see every other year and we don’t know if any other speech is ever going to top it when it comes to romance.
For those wondering, Jan Svendsen has a history of stage work and producing, which is probably one of the reasons her relationship with Weiss works so well — they both have a love for the entertainment business and they have worked on projects for many years. There are pictures of her and Weiss together at events in the past, but never quite something like this. Obviously, we do have a number of other questions coming out of this, including how long ago Weiss planned this and if he ever got nervous right before the show.
Ultimately, though, congratulations to the couple! There’s almost a part of us that wants him to be nominated again next year so that he can have a wedding right now the spot. Wouldn’t that be a fun twist?
