Then the first Oscar goes to
Mahershala Ali. Just like Jeremy Johns, I had not seen Moonlight but if his performance was anything like it was in the Netflix series Luke Cage then he definitely deserves it. "It's not about you its about the character." Well said. I love the fact that when he won the award as he stood up, button his coat and headed to the stage he received a pat on the back and kept walking then instantly he stops. He looks back because he realizes who it may have been. He turns around and sees that it was Jeff Bridges, also nominated in the same category, and extends his hand out of respect and Shakes Jeff Bridges hand before continuing on to the stage to give a great speech .
After the commercial break we come to the first shocker of the night, Suicide Squad wins. Yes it was for Makeup & Hairstyling, an award I may have given to Star Trek 3 but I do see it to be deserved. No complaints but nothing for La La Land. Best Costume Design was taken by Fantastic Beast and Where to Find them, a movie that I did not have the energy to pay a ticket for. I just can not see why we're moving forward with Harry Potter without Harry.
When O.J.: Made In America took best Documentary Feature, no one in the audience knew if clapping was allowed. I'm here to say it is. Because it honors the victims of the crime and the people who's lives were also destroyed because of that infamous event. The creator, Ezra Edelman and Caroleine Waterlow are to be honored as well.
And the Oscar goes to Viola Davis, Actress in a Supporting Role for Fences. Ironically also of Suicide Squad. In all seriousness, the gratitude and appreciation of what she's achieved. This moment was almost as great as seeing Meryle Streep eating candy that fell from the sky thanks to Jimmy Kimmel.
A lot of people have stated that if Emma Watson did not received the Oscar for her performance in la-la land that she probably would never receive an Oscar because this was the performance of her life. Others wanted Meryl Streep to win because they wanted her and Donald Trump to get into it again. This category was stacked but I believe that if Emma Watson wanted then lala land has earned a ticket purchase for me because I'm definitely curious to see what this movie brings as far as the performance from these two stars . Ryan Gosling also nominated for best actor beat out by Casey Affleck who gave a speech honoring Denzel Washington.
Sean believes that he is going to rub it in Ben Affleck's face that he has an Oscar for acting now . Something that his brother does not have even though Ben has more Oscars. Either way it goes Ben Affleck will look Casey in the face and say but I'm Batman .
Breaking news, best picture was announced for La La Land. Then after beginning their speech, it was then stated on stage that the real winner was Moonlight. It had to be repeated that it was not a joke. The embarrassment could be felt hardheartedly by everyone involved. The cast of Moonlight slowly walk up the stage as the dishearten team of La La Land were rushed off the stage. The commotion behind the scenes must have been a tornado of expletives as the producers scrambled to get the real winners on stage. I feel bad for Jimmy Kimmel. He had an almost perfect night. The delivery of his hosting was memorable and funny as hell, it was all overshadowed by the craziest twist in Oscar history. Never before has this ever happened.
