John Krasinski Some Good News Virtual Graduation 2020

John Krasinski Teamed Up With Oprah, Steven Spielberg, and More For a Virtual Graduation

Throw your caps in the air because John Krasinski just celebrated the US class of 2020 with a graduation party unlike any I've seen before. On May 3, John released the sixth episode of his series Some Good News on his YouTube channel, and after sharing some heartwarming updates from around the world, John got his party on with a few famous faces. "To everyone who has been inspired by @somegoodnews . . . get ready to meet the class of 2020 and see what real inspiration is," John captioned an Instagram post sharing the graduation video.

"I believe that failure is an opportunity to move yourself in a different direction."

From kindergarten to college and grad school, all of the 2020 graduates and their families were welcome to take part in the festivities. John even invited a few class speakers from around the globe to share their words of wisdom with their fellow graduates before welcoming the commencement speakers onto the screen.

Instead of just one speaker, though, John invited Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg, Malala Yousafzai, and Jon Stewart to share words of wisdom with the graduating class. "There have been several times in my life, Amanda, when things didn't go the way I wanted," Oprah told one graduate before she went on to describe how she landed her famous talk show. "I believe that failure is an opportunity to move yourself in a different direction. It gets better because you learn the lessons from the first time."

Relive the full virtual graduation here to see what advice John's other celebrity friends had to share. Congratulations to the class of 2020!
