Oscars 2016 Recap

The 88th Academy Awards ceremony is behind us. It was a good show. Here are some things I (dis)like about the show and nice/cool/funny moments...

- The show started with movie clips and it could be better or at least longer. We're celebrating movies aren't we?

- Chris Rock hosted the show for the second time and he was very direct when it came to diversity. I will say it bothered me that it was like there is no other race than black and white. And I don't understand why white actors can speak there mind about it. I mean some they already did but it backfired... Back to Chris. His speech was also like we're watching stand up :)


- Skits were quite funny but I didn't undestand moment where Stacey Dash’s brief self-deprecating cameo as “director of our new minority outreach program”? Awkward...


- Music performances. Lady Gaga had a powerful performance without a doubt.

- Most fun presenters: Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe present Best Adapted Screenplay. They made me laugh.


- I was so impressed by the stage this year and how extraordinary beautiful everything looked. Perfection. Really nice job!

- Oscar's Orchestra: they played really cool songs but there were still interruptions. I think thank-you scroll did help but I still prefer spontaneous, from the heart speeches.

- Best acceptance speeches: Leonardo DiCaprio, Alicia Vikander, Mark Rylance. I think the whole world is happy for Leo!


And the bear also approves ;)


- I was really happy that they included Star Wars droids BB-8, R2D2 and C3-PO

... and also Minions


- The whole sells for Girl Scout cookies was a bit off for me. It felt too forced.

- Co-stars Brie Larson and Jacob Tremblay are cool! High 5!


- In Memoriam part was beautiful...

He might not have got a mention, but we lost also Uggie (dog from movie The Artist)...

- George Miller and Mad Max: Fury Road were having a lovely day and they stay true to themslves which was nice thing to see!


Have you enjoyed this year's show?
