Emmy’s 2017 Recap…wait, there’s a mistake…Oscars 2017 Recap

This year the movies being honored weren’t the only dramas found at The Oscars. With Donald Trump as President, diversity being questioned, and a live TV award show- something was bound to go wrong. And while there were high points, there were also stunningly low points. Here’s my list of the top 10 moments of the Oscars- good and bad.

  1. Obviously, the “Best Picture” Flub, which continues to make me, and most of the world, feel uncomfortable just thinking about.

  2. Yet, that uncomfortable flub meant that “Best Picture” went to Moonlight, a powerful and diverse film that enlightens by conveying the childhood, adolescence, and early adulthood of an African American boy in a rough neighborhood.

  3. Justin Timberlake’s opening number that featured an adorable little dance with his wife, Jessica Biel, and a lot of fun moments.

  4. The Matt Damon vs. Jimmy Kimmel “feud”

  5. Director Asghar Farhadi won “Best Foreign Language Film,” but wasn’t there in a display of protest against President Trump’s travel ban.

  6. The 2017 Oscars “In Memoriam” piece included an uncomfortable mix-up when a very-much alive Australian producer’s photo was featured next to the name of a deceased costume designer

  7. Jimmy Kimmel’s classic “Mean Tweets” segment made a special Oscars appearance and was as funny as ever

  8. When Jimmy Kimmel arranged for an unsuspecting tour group to be brought into the Oscars while it was airing live:

  9. Viola Davis wins “Best Supporting Actress” and delivers an emotional, moving, and powerful speech about her family, God, and the importance of a movie like Fences.
