Missed the Oscars? Don’t worry! I’m here to recap on one of Hollywood’s biggest nights! The biggest surprise of the night was Eminem taking the stage. He performed his Oscar-winning song, “Lose Yourself.” Just like many of us were surprised because nobody had heard from the man in years, celebrities themselves were shocked! Another big moment was Joaquin Phoenix winning an Oscar for his role in Joker. In his acceptance speech, he talked about various social issues in the film industry as well as other activism topics. He also got personal and talked about his gratefulness for the people who gave him a second chance. Parasite, an international thriller, became the first non-English film to win best picture in history! Never before has this been done from the Academy Awards. The film also won “Best International Feature,” “Best Original Screenplay,” and “Best Director.” One of the most talked about moments of the night….not in a very good way…was the appearance of James Corden and Rebel Wilson. In presenting the award for “Best Visual Effects” the two dressed up as cats to poke fun of their movie, Cats. They were licking and pawing at the microphone, giving off weird vibes to the audience. All in all, it was a very awkward moment. Another moment that wasn’t the best was Janelle Monae’s opening. It was a combination of songs that weren’t nominated for Oscars and overall just a very confusing theme. Saoirse Ronan’s meme-face says it all! That’s it for the highlights of the Oscars, get super excited for next year!
