The 2019 Oscars came and went last night. People won, people lost, and a whole bunch of woke people are angry over the move that won Best Picture.
Here are the winners:
- Best Picture: Green Book
- Best Director: Alfonso Cuarón, Roma
- Best Actress in a Leading Role: Olivia Colman, The Favourite
- Best Actor: in a Leading Role: Rami Malek, Bohemian Rhapsody
- Actress in a Supporting Role: Regina King, If Beale Street Could Talk
- Actor in a Supporting Role: Mahershala Ali, Green Book
- Animated Feature Film: Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse
I didn’t watch last night’s festivities. The Oscars become more and more irrelevant with each passing year. This year’s event didn’t even have a host. Soon, the award show will not even have awards. Why should they? Almost everyone nominated says, “Just being nominated is an honor.” Okay then. We should just take them at their word.
Instead of winners going up on stage and giving a speech with the orchestra interrupting them after 12 seconds, Everyone nominated should be able to go up on stage and speak. Then, people who watched any of the movies should then be able to go on stage and speak.
Winning makes people mad
Green Book winning Best Picture made a lot of people on Twitter mad. I don’t really know why. It might have something to do with racism or something. I did not see the movie, nor do I plan on seeing it. If ignorance is bliss, I plan on being very blissful about Green Book.
To anyone mad about Green Book winning best picture, I offer the following advice: worry not your troubled heart. Next year at this time nobody will remember this movie. After this week, the next time you will think about Green Book is when you see a DVD copy of the movie in a $3.98 bin at Walmart.
Of all the movies nominated for awards, the only one I went to the movie theater to watch was Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. It was also the best movie I watched all year. If the Oscars were legitimate, it would have been nominated for Best Picture. Seriously. It was that good.
