What You Missed : 2016 Oscars

Thoughts

Last night, ABC aired the 88th Academy Award ceremony live from the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. Due to the controversy of not having any nominees of color for two consecutive years, host Chris Rock did not hold back from making some humorous remarks about the”White People’s Choice Awards”. We have to give him a round of applause for his approach to this heated matter but some may not have appreciated his sense of humor so much.

Leonardo DiCaprio finally won an Oscar! He tried his luck five times before, but the sixth time is always a charm, right? At least he didn’t have to wait 19 consecutive Daytime Emmy nominations like Susan Lucci.

Leo tried to keep his cool in his acceptance speech but we all know he was bursting with exuberance and relief on the inside. He added a tinge of environmentalism after thanking the director and other cast/crew members. The Revenant was critically acclaimed for the performance and direction, receiving a total of 12 nominations in the 88th Academy Awards. I am yet to watch the film but I am sure I won’t be let down.
