Ahoy me mateys Captain Cats here. This past Sunday was the 91st Academy Awards, and a lot has happened during the show, so I’m going to break down some of the most significant moments that occur at the Oscar.
Spike Lee won his very first Oscar with “BlacKkKansman” for Best Adapted Screenplay. This award was long overdue for him.
Rami Malek won lead actor which everyone knew, but it was Olivia Colman who surprised everyone. Many believed that it was Glenn Close’s year with her fantastic role in “The Wife” or even Yalitza Aparicio for her heartfelt role in “Roma.”
“Spider-man: Into the Spider-Verse” won Best Animated Feature, and the producers of the film gave a heartfelt speech. Sony also ended Disney’s six-year winning in this category.
Netflix made history with “Roma” winning Foreign Language Film and Best Director. With this win, it shows that Netflix can deliver Oscar-worthy films on a digital platform and not in the cinema.
With the lack of a host, the show went on a good pace and clock in just under 3 hours.
The musical numbers in this year were the best the Oscars had in a very long time with Lady Gaga and her duet with Bradley Cooper, Gillian Welch and David Rawling, Jennifer Hudson, Bette Midler and Queen with Adam Lambert to open up the show.
