Academy Awards Show Best In Years

March 5, 2018

Sunday night’s Academy Awards show was one of the best in years.  I just knew–deep down–that the 90th Oscars would be done with class and style.  And I was not let down in any way from what I hoped for.

The simply amazing and numerous montages with powerful themes, the grandly produced musical numbers which competed with the Grammy’s for power and punch, the skilled comedy of Jimmy Kimmel, the stars of yesterday and today–it all made for a night of joy!

I had to laugh heartly when soon after the show started Kimmel quipped that “Black Panther” co-star Lupita Nyong’o was born in Mexico and raised in Kenya.   And then added, “Let the tweet storm from the president’s toilet begin!”    Then later Nyong’o and Kumail Nanjiani spent a moment supporting Dreamers–and who was not applauding at that!

I was very pleased–as a crazed fan of “The West Wing” that Allison Janney won an Oscar.   I had goose-bumps on my arm when Kimmel took  several movie stars across the street to an actual theater and walked in to an unsuspecting crowd—and let them be a live part of the show!  When Mark Hamill walks up and shakes your hand——-damn!

Two thumbs up for Gary Oldman winning Best Actor Oscar for playing Winston Churchill.  James and I loved the movie.  Loved the ‘texture’ of the way it was filmed–simply marvelous!

What a wonderful night for film.  Those of us who sit in darkened theaters or at home and fall in love with the grand showcasing of humanity never grow tired of the wonders from Hollywood.  May it always be so.

    Kimmel is not near as funny as he thinks he is, and the entire affair was very shallow.
