The best Oscars ceremony ever

Now, this was the 89th Oscars ceremony and it surely made it up to my “Top 100 best things I’ve ever seen”. It was the most embarrassing and the most cringe-worthy award show to ever happen. Let’s start with the basics:

A lot of wild lampshade dresses appeared (courtesy of HarpersBazaar
Alicia Vikander’s orangey tan (looks good in this picture but if you watched the Red Carpet you know what I’m talking about) – ENews
The great-grandmother’s dress of the Fifty Shades of Grey star (HB)
The many actresses who tried to wear dresses that only look good on models (HB)

Now, about the ceremony itself… here are the top 3 worst things that happened:

3. When you try your best but you don’t succeed

Basically, they got the name right but the picture wrong. It would be worse if they didn’t look alike at all, right?

2. When men like Casey Affleck win stuff

Oh, you love him? Go read this, then.

Casey Affleck was nominated for Best Actor. He won against Andrew Garfield, Ryan Gosling, Viggo Mortensen and Denzel Washington. So what? What’s the problem with Casey Affleck?

Well, this man was accused of sexual harassment more than once. That’s a crime, by the way. And he still won the Oscar. Clearly, sexual harassment is not taken that seriously in Hollywood. In fact, the Academy only seems to encourage it by letting disgusting men collect awards such as this.

Denzel Washington’s reaction was just incredible
The truth has been spoken, people.
  1. The Oscars Miss Universe Fail

I can’t express how embarrassed I felt for the La La Land team. I don’t even care about the movie itself, let alone the cast. Still, I could imagine myself on the stage, thanking everyone who helped me win my Oscar, and being told “Oh, sorry, actually you didn’t win!”

The question is: was Ryan Gosling aware that they didn’t deserve to win? 
Matt Damon‘s face was just priceless but..
nothing can compare to Meryl‘s reaction.
Too good to be missed.

Spoiler: The best part is when everyone stands up and claps because La La Land didn’t actually win.

Like I said, and even though the movie I wanted to win didn’t, this was the worst and the best thing to ever happen at an Oscars ceremony. 

But not everything was bad…

Viola Davis became the first black woman in history to have won an Emmy, a Tony and an Oscar.

Here you go. If you haven’t watched the ceremony yet, please do. Or just jump right to the end because that’s definitely worth watching. What are your thoughts on the winners?

    1. I think they did consider doing that instead of announcing the real winner. It’s the only reason I can come up with for the time it took them to come to the stage and solve the problem. It was beyond embarrassing.
