Oscars 2017 awards ceremony was by far a very embarrassing and disputable show, even if the actual weirdness started much earlier. Yes, dear friends, it was more absurd than this year’s Golden Globes, where “Hollywood legend” Meryl Streep threw some venomous spikes at their democratically elected president, misinterpreting some of Donald Trump chaotic aping gestures. She has been applauded long lasting moments (even if she pretended to have “only three seconds to say this”). Her peers repeated the act with ovations, happy cries and applause remembering her speech at the Globes. Jimmy Kimmel, this year’s host, invited all present people: “please join me on giving Meryl Streep a totally undeserving round of applause!”
It was funny and politically incorrect, I almost liked it. Jimmy Kimmel “is very hot right now”[sic], you can check Twitter trends 🙂
Oscars 2017 – Here you have the nominees for Best Picture:
I watched them all! Unfortunately, I think that Damien Chazelle, Cassey Affleck and Emma Stone are proudly new members of the right gang in respect for their carriers at the moment. The are too high on the wave right now to deny what I think. Other winnings, like Viola Davis’, Mahershala Ali’s and Moonlight‘s (Brad Pitt being one of the producers), are only perks after last year’s #oscarssowhite brouhaha. They won, so Spike Lee and his wife, Will Smith and his wife, along Michael Moore and his fat frame will stop boycotting the Oscars. I was relieved they didn’t start a hunger strike or some other extreme form of protest, like no defecating for one month, or for forty days, or not having a bath, or not wearing clothes until a colored people will be nominated, etc… They boycott with words, empty words, told here and there to throw some more gas on the ethnic fire…
Next year it’s a must for at least a Chinese to be nominated, otherwise they’ll boycott too…
An Unforgettable Moment
The show, considered the “craziest ever”, had more than one memorable moment. One of them is when Viola Davis has accepted her Best Actress in a Supporting Role award. She wisely told the audience: “You know, that’s one place where all the people of the greatest potential are gathered”… and when everybody started to think that this would be a sequel to Meryl Streep’s speech at the Globes, where she approved every single word (I almost expected the magic word, “Hollywood”), but no, “and that’s the graveyard”, she said. Please follow the link to watch the moment again. It’s a fourteen minutes moment. What a shame, what a pity that instead of modestly accepting the peers’ hosanna, Strip theatrically has lost her voice bitching.
That was taken from a deep well of thinking. Just to be in line with her likes in the room, she said the pearl of wisdom we all breathlessly waited for a long time now: “We are the only profession that celebrates what it means to live a life”. Bravo Viola, you, the actors, are the only ones… You no need nobody to tell you what![sic]
Everything culminated with the biggest gaffe in Oscars history, when La La Land was announced as Best Picture winner instead of Moonlight. It’s funny and leading to even funnier conspiracy theories.
Two people, Martha Ruiz and Brian Cullinan have only one job at the Oscars 2017, not producing, not writing, but just handing every envelope to the designated presenter. More than that, Martha Ruiz, just said in an interview a few days prior the ceremony, that a mistake is unlikely.
“It’s him (Cullinan) checking me and me checking him, and we do it multiple times against each other to make sure that when we leave and are ultimately handing the envelopes to someone, we’re very confident they’re getting the right envelopes and the contents in them are accurate.” – Martha Ruiz [wow!]

It wasn’t a Steve Harvey mistake :). At Miss Universe 2015 pageant, he wrongly read the winner’s name from the good envelope.
I just think they were high that night, like all the judgemental Hollywood members living in their septic world, talking from prompters, thinking with their handler’s head and arrogantly giving us, the poor mortals, the ultimate advice on life. Oscars 2017 cured me of watching them for at least one year.
