The Women, The Assaulters And The Deceivers: A Quick Recap Of The 90th Academy Awards

Published

on

Oscar

Jimmy Kimmel Oscars

This is a quick recap for all those who haven’t had the chance to watch last night’s 90th Academy awards. We hope you find our wrap up helpful! Alright, so first off, let’s start with Jimmy Kimmel’s opening monologue.

Jimmy Kimmel 2018

This is not the first time that Kimmel hosts the Oscars, in fact, he hosted them last year as well. And because he did such a good job at it, they decided to bring him back again this year. This year’s opening monologue got so many mixed reactions.

Kimmel chose to address Equal rights, equal pay, sexual harassment and minority treatment in his speech, which wasn’t met with a lot of joyful faces among the spectators.

Not of course, those in the same room, I’m talking about the people who were watching the Oscars around the world. Some described the monologue as bland and boring, some even went so far as to complain about Kimmel’s “ranting” on and on about all those people who aren’t getting their rights. In spite of how fake and plastic Hollywood is, we personally believe that this speech is brave and much needed. Kimmel pulled no punches in his monologue this year, no singing, no dancing, none of all those shenanigans and in our opinion, he did quite a decent job.

Mr. Gary Oldman

But then, after all that talk about “The New Hollywood” and a night that was supposedly dedicated to celebrating women empowerment, the Academy so audaciously chose to give Mr. Gary Oldman the Best Actor in A leading Role award to go home with for his role in “Darkest Hour”. 

Donya Fiorentino

Why is this problematic, you ask? Oldman was accused of domestic assault back in 2001 by his then-wife Donya Fiorentino, who claimed that the actor beat her with a telephone while her children were present in the same room.

Timothee Chalamet

Timothee Chalamet

Oldman has denied those allegations. Oldman was also caught defending accused abusers Alec Baldwin and Mel Gibson in a Playboy interview back in 2014. New Hollywood my ass. In our opinion, this award, being so special, should’ve gone to the other front-runner, the enigmatic 22 year old, Timothee Chalamet, who has proved that age has nothing to do with great skill and incredible talent in his performance in Luca Guadagnino’s “Call Me By Your Name”.

Daniel Day-Lewis

This was Chalamet’s first nomination and he was in fact; the youngest nominee in that category in 80 years, yesterday. Daniel Day-Lewis was also a front-runner for the award, although it was obvious that the three time Academy award recipient was not going to win yesterday, as everyone was betting on Oldman and Chalamet.

The astounding Francis McDormand took home the award for Best Actress in A Leading Role yesterday for her role in Martin McDonagh’s “Three Billboards Outside Ebbbing, Missouri”.

Francis McDormand

The actress truly deserved this award, in our opinion, for her incredible performance in the film and the intensity and the ferociousness that she has brought to her character.

 

Francis McDormand


McDormand
was extremely appreciative of the award when she gave a heartwarming speech, asking her fellow female nominees, while hyperventilating (in all categories) to stand-up as well and asking the audience to salute them for their great efforts. Among the nominees were: Meryl Streep, Soarise Ronan, Greta Gerwig, Sally Hawkins and many more. We love you, Francis.

Sam Rockwell

And now, what would we have done if Sam Rockwell hadn’t won the Best Actor in A Supporting Role? We’re so glad that this is something that we don’t have to think about since that Rockwell won the lottery yesterday after his performance in “Three Billboards Outside Ebbbing, Missouri”.

Sam Rockwell

This is Janney’s first nomination and win and we couldn’t have been happier for her! Her role as LaVona in “I, Tonya” made us all lose hope in humanity, which is a good thing, in Janney’s case.

Guillermo Del Toro’s beautiful filmThe Shape of Waterwon Best Picture after the film lead with 13 nominations and won 4: original score, production design and director, as well. Del Toro’s speech truly gave us all goosebumps. The director said “I want to dedicate this to every young filmmaker, the youth that is showing us how things are done,” he went on.

Janney’s

“Really, they are. In every country in the world. And I was a kid enamored with movies, growing up in Mexico, I thought this could never happen. It happens. And I want to tell you, everyone that is dreaming of using fantasy to tell the stories about the things that are real in the world today, you can do it. This is the door. Kick it open and come in.”

Yesterday’s show was plated with social and political statements, that being said, there were tons of snubs and undeserved wins. That doesn’t only include Gary Oldman, but Kobe Bryant, as well. The former basketball star won an Oscar yesterday for Best Animated Short. Bryant was arrested and charged with sexual assault in 2003, when a 19-year-old hotel employee in Colorado accused him of rape. But, this is Lala land, and whatever Hollywood claims to stand for isn’t, in most times, necessarily the truth. However, we want to congratulate yesterday’s winners, the ones who truly deserved to take the golden statue home.

But here’s our humble message to Hollywood: If you’re going to claim that you stand for something, at least try to do a better job at supporting your own claims. Talk about double standards. Thank you.
