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

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
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.

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!”
Spoiler: The best part is when everyone stands up and claps because La La Land didn’t actually win.
But not everything was bad…
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?
