The Oscars Moments We Can’t Stop Talking About
“The Shape of Water” won Best Picture at last night’s Oscars, and Guillermo Del Toro won Best Director. Frances McDormand won Best Actress, and Gary Oldman won Best Actor. And host Jimmy Kimmel Gave a Jet Ski to the winner who gave the shortest acceptance speech.
FRANCES MCDORMAND won Best Actress for “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”, and her co-star SAM ROCKWELL got Best Supporting Actor.
During her acceptance speech, Frances made all the night’s female nominees stand, and also introduced the world to the phrase “inclusion rider”. If you haven’t Googled it already, it’s a clause an actor or actress can put in their contract demanding that the cast and crew of a film be more diverse. But that laugh thou. It was very distracting.
ALLISON JANNEY won Best Supporting Actress for “I, Tonya”, and GARY OLDMAN won Best Actor for “Darkest Hour”.
“Get Out” didn’t get too much love, but JORDAN PEELE became the first African-American to win Best Original Screenplay. Meanwhile, “Lady Bird” and “Mudbound” got snubbed.
JIMMY KIMMEL did a great job hosting again, and he even had a unique idea to get people to shorten their acceptance speeches. He offered a JET SKI to the person who took the least time.
The winner was Mark Bridges, the costume designer on “Phantom Thread”. He went 36 seconds. Jimmy brought several stars to a movie theater across the street to surprise some people who were watching “A Wrinkle in Time”.
