THE 5 MUST-SEE MOMENTS FROM THE 2018 OSCARSMarch 5, 2018
If you didn’t sit through the nearly four hours long Academy Awards to see The Shape of Water snag Best Picture, we’ve got the rundown of five of the best moments from last night’s Oscars.
JIMMY KIMMEL’S OPENING MONOLOGUE
Host Jimmy Kimmel found a balance taking aim at everything from Harvey Weinstein and last year’s Moonlight/LA LA Land mishap to Black Panther and Hollywood’s attempts at diversity. He even tried to keep speeches down to a minimum by offering a Jetski to whomever had the shortest one. Unfortunately, we had to wait 240 minutes to find out the winner.
FRANCES McDORMAND’S IMPASSIONED SPEECH
After winning her second Best Actress Oscar for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri – she previously won for Fargo in 1996 – Frances McDormand had all the female nominees from all categories stand up to enjoy their moment of respect.
“If I could have all the women stand up with me in this moment,” she said as everyone including Meryl Streep took to their feet. “Look around, everybody, look around, ladies and gentlemen, because we all have stories to tell, and we all have projects we need to finance.”
‘THIS IS ME’ BRINGS THE HOUSE DOWN
While there were many great musical performances, Keala Settle raised the roof – and had Viola Davis cheering – with her shows-topping rendition of “This Is Me” from The Greatest Showman.
I know that there’s a place for us, for we are glorious! Sing it, Keala, SANG!
JORDAN PEELE WINS BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY
While also nominated for director and Best Film, Jordan Peele became the first African-American to win Best Original Screenplay for Get Out. Historic and long overdue!
TIFFANY HADDISH & MAYA RUDOLPH, Y’ALL
Hold on to your shoes, because Tiffany Haddish and Maya Rudolph not only stole the show with their hilarious bit while presenting, they are now everyone’s choice for next year’s hosts.
Tif and Maya, we want you to be our mamas!
