Well another awards season has come to a close, and while there were some great moments (and some important statements made) none of my personal favorites managed wins. (Except, of course, my role model Ms. McDormand – but more on that later).
Jimmy Kimmel did a good job last night of being charming, relatively inoffensive, and didn’t dwell on hatred of Matt Damon or the envelope snafu from last year.
I liked the jet ski for shortest speech gimmick (though honestly they could have played people off, that was a looooooong show.)
Mark Bridges, is living his best life up there. (Also, his costumes for Phantom Thread were so gorgeous.
Other than best picture, which I was sure was going to go to Three Billboards there weren’t many surprises with the winners. (Including unfortunately, Timothée Chalamet’s award going to a man in old age makeup yelling.)
I like Sam Rockwell a lot (though Willem DaFoe was robbed):
(Side note: Did we all know that Martin McDonagh and Phoebe Waller-Bridge were a thing? Because that’s awesome.)
I also really like Allison Janney (though Laurie and Lesley were also so amazing this year):
Kobe Bryant has an Oscar now. That’s not one I would have predicted!
Best presenters of the evening:
Though these two were pretty great too:
Jordan Peele deserved this:
I’m not sure if Guillermo deserved this or not, but I he gives good speech:
I love a good Meryl bit:
And most importantly: Frances. McDormand.
Fashion wise there was a lot of sparkle and bright bold colors, which I loved. Here were my favs:
She looks beautiful, and I love that fairy-gossamer dress, but I am still not convinced she’s not going to murder someone.
