Oh. It’s Green Book.
Congratulations to this year’s runaway favorite for Best Red Carpet Color, hot pink.
At this moment, I’m honestly not sure who will win Best Picture. Some years, by this point in the ceremony the winner is obvious. But this year, Roma, Bohemian Rhapsody, and Black Panther have all won multiple awards, and any of them—most likely Roma or Bohemian Rhapsody—could win.
FUCK YEAH OLIVIA COLMAN!
The big snub from this year’s In Memoriam montage is Dick Miller, whose ubiquity as a character actor sadly didn’t translate into the Oscars. Sure, many of his roles were in B-movies, but he was in The Terminator! And Gremlins! And 179 other movies!
I cannot wait for the pictures of Spike from tonight’s afterparties.
Since he just died yesterday, I’m assuming Singin’ In The Rain director Stanley Donen will be honored in next year’s In Memoriam montage; the same thing happened with Alain Resnais, who died the day before the Oscars in 2014.
Re: That moment of silence at the beginning of Spike Lee’s speech:
I rather enjoy Lady Gaga’s over-the-top joy at winning awards. Imagine if she wins Best Actress!
Was....was that an elaborate The Lobster joke in a Geico ad?
Can I just say, the exact scenario I just said I didn’t want to happen, happened? “As long as Paul Schrader doesn’t lose to Nick Vallelonga, I’m cool...” and BAM. I apologize for jinxing you, Paul.
It has to be! It won several awards at the Grammys a few weeks ago, and although the voting bodies of those two groups probably don’t overlap all that much, it’s a damn catchy song.
Naturally, no intro is needed for the opening notes of “Shallow,” a song I still wake up humming a couple of times a week.
You may have noticed the shoutout to Netflix—Period. End Of Sentence is already streaming on the platform, if you’re interested. Also, on a personal note, I never thought I’d hear the words “menstrual equality” on live TV.
It’s true, Alex—I would absolutely watch a movie with those two as substitute teachers taking an unruly class of fourth-graders on a field trip (just for one example).
King of the reaction shot, Spike Lee, at it again!
Seriously though, if you were going to do the whole bit with the Wayne’s World clip, and have them say “we’re not worthy” and all that, why not just throw on the wigs? For old times’ sake?
COME OUT ON STAGE AS WAYNE AND GARTH YOU COWARDS.
Nothing but respect for my Academy President, Laura Dern.
You’ll get ‘em next time, Richard E. Grant. Did I mention he’s in Star Wars: Episode IX?
