No Dorothy Malone. Kind of sucks when winning an Oscar doesn’t guarantee you a spot in the memorium PowerPoint.

True. Nothing really surprises me after they left out Bigas Luna and Oshima Nagisa in recent years.

That BlacKkKlansman bit was especially brutal since it won't win - the crowd seems thrilled about it in a way they aren't for the other Best Picture nominees and they should be

Great showcase clip for Malek: lip syncing and then gasping orgasmically.

And fuck me it won

Paul Dano did more work for Love & Mercy and wasn't nominated

Malek has a beautiful face and seems like a delightful actor but this is perhaps the most soulless way to win this award

If I never have to hear another Queen song again, it will be too soon.

(Bracing myself for the Best Picture win.)

My feeling on this is that the Academy embarrasses itself at least once a year in the acting categories, and here we are.

At least Viggo didn’t win, I guess.

Not as bad as this Green Book is worthy of Rep. Lewis bit they're doing now.

Olivia's acceptance speech is the best part of the show, one hundred percent.

I’ve been more annoyed at the Glenn Close sham than the rest of this awards season, so happy Colman won. From Peep Show to Oscar!

Peter Farrelly is now the first novelist to produce a Best Picture winner. He really should've stayed a novelist.
