2017 Academy Award Recap


The Red Carpet

Lin Manuel Miranda got his tux in Yonkers, NY at the same place he got his prom tux in 1998! Love him so much. Realness personified.


Dakota Johnson trying to cover up for all of her Fifty Shades indiscretions.


Octavia looked lovely.


Former Miss Universe shout out, that’s all.  Olivia Culpo


Casey Affleck will pass out in a few seconds due to lack of circulation.




Terrence Howard wearing his best smoking jacket.


Leslie Mann hoping to catch a breeze and be the first to fly around the world in a balloon.


Halle Barry throwing it back to Whitney circa 1988!


We were really just hoping that John Travolta was here again this year.

There is good and there is bad.

This is high fashion! Good on you Pharrell.


Dr. Quinn Medicine Women.

I want this to be longer.  But those shoes!


I want this to be less grandma quilt.


“What was The Rock in?” “Manwana? Mohana?” “Moana” “Oh yes there it is.”  And apparently the highest paid actor in Hollywood.  Say wha….


It’s so nice that Mel Gibson brought his granddaughter to the Oscars this year…..er…his girlfriend. What?!!


The Show

What a way to get on your feet Hollywood and start the show with some Justin Timberlake. He just made it back in the top spot on my Top 5 List!


“Black people saved NASA and white people saved jazz.”

“The only happy ending in the movies this year was in the middle of Moonlight.”

“If you work for anything with ‘Times’ in the title, including Medieval Times, I’m going to ask you to leave. We don’t have any tolerance for fake news. Fake hands are another story.”

That “carry” commercial by Cadillac tho!!

That 16 year old Moana girl is so cute—the breath at the end of “oh wow I did it.”

Most moving speech, Moonlight Best Adapted Screenplay winner. “We’ve got your back. For all those black and brown boys, who are not gender conforming, we’re trying to show you, you. This is for you!” Tarell Alvin McCraney screenplay writer for Moonlight. 

What just happened?!?

It’s Miss Universe all over again!  Where is Steve Harvey?  MOONLIGHT not LA LA for Best Pucture, the way it should be-such a great, bold, brave and moving piece of cinamatic art MOONLIGHT!!

“…and all you people out there who think there’s no mirror for you, that your life is not reflected, the Academy has your back. The ACLU has your back. We have your back. And for the next four years, we will not leave you alone. We will not forget you.” Barry Jenkins, Moonlight
