I think at that point we should all feel bad for Kate Winslet's husband.
Ugh. The entire ceremony was just a repeat of 'OscarsSoWhite, white people so racist" "joke". Chris Rock and all those presenters - why didn't you just give Birth of a Nation BP now? I mean why bother with the next ceremony? We all know it will win, just like 12 Years of Slave. Not because it deserves it, but because of the sure hysterics that would happen if it didn't.
And you know at least they could let Idris Elba present something, anything really.
The only thing worth watching this year were the few glimpses of Hardy I could easily just see on tumblr
Oh and Harley and The Joker together. That was glorious.
Let's do the list of actual shame here not the OscarsSoWhite made up issue (it's an Industry problem!):
There was no Uggie in In Memoriam.
The Academy again threw a lot of awards at a good movie without having the balls to award said movie in BP.
Inarittu and Chivo won for shooting a forest.
Alicia Vikander won proving yet again that if you lie with Harvey, you get an Oscar
JFC, poor Sylvester Stallone. This is just such a waste of an Oscar. I saw Bridge of Spies in November and I remember nothing of Rylance and that movie.
In the biggest boo of all Harrison Ford was not there. To make matters worse at one point they played Indiana Jones theme music and I was all excited that maybe Harrison is there and is gonna show up on the stage and then Joe Biden came in. This is my message to the the academy:
Do not ever fucking use Indiana Jones music unless you're gonna follow it with Harrison Ford walking on stage.
Jesus Christ, I should sue.
Also I keep seeing people suggest Stallone gets honorary soon. How many times do I have to remind people - HARRISON FORD STILL DOESN'T HAVE A HONORARY OSCAR. Out of all the shit the Academy has done over the years, this one is still the worst.
DiCaprio finally won. He spent most of the season trying to spin The Revenant as the movie that shows what terrible things were done to the natives. He used the Oscars to try to spin a new angle - that The Revenant is about the need to save the climate *gasps*.
That may actually be close to the truth seeing how the film is about the trees.
Inarittu won and hugged Hardy. That was fairly shocking considering all the rumours from the set.
Spotlight won. I think this is a subdued movie that had the responsibility to cause fury in people and didn't, therefore it failed. But at least it's not moaning and crawling in the woods, right?
