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

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!

rs_1024x759-170226173906-1024-justin-timberlake-academy-awards

“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

The Show

Best joke – “Jada Pinkett Smith boycotting the Oscars is like Me boycotting Rihanna’s panties. I wasn’t invited.”

“Best Black Friend category.”

“They unplugged the real Ray. We don’t need two of these.”

“I’m a Danish Girl” *eats danish* Tracy Morgan

Best Costume Design winner ate at Cracker Barrel this morning.

Best Production Design at least wore her fancy leggings and pearls.

Can someone get that woman who just won for Best Hair and Makeup a stool?

Marco Rubio just won the only thing he is going to win this year, Best Animated Short.

Were you disappointed too when Patricia Arquette said, “And the Oscar goes to Mark….Rylance”? He was really good, but I love Mark Ruffalo.

Stallone is probably pissed that he won’t ever have another chance to win an Oscar.

WOW – that was Diane Warren’s umpteenth nomination and her “sure thing”- sad for her.

Standing ovation for Leo – a very well deserved win for him FINALLY!

Spotlight winning was no surprise to me, I loved that movie and thought it was a well deserved win.

*****

Chris Rock does it again, hosting an excellent Oscar show.  I thought he was great handling all the controversy.  I love when he makes himself giggle.  Overall I thought the show was kind of boring, so I don’t have much to say about that.  It was wonderful to see Leo finally win his first Oscar after so many nominations and excellent performances.  Alejandro G. Inarritu is truly having a time in history.  What a talent.  Mad Max ruled this year in what was a strange array of Best Picture nominations.  Overall, Spotlight being the winner is the right choice.  Until next year!
