Ninetieth Oscars: The Shape of Ebbing Missouri

Jimmy K

Did you watch the Ninetieth Oscar on Sunday night? The big winner was Shape of Water winning four awards which include Best Picture, Director, Production Design and best score.

Jimmy Kimmel was the perfect host. Unfortunately, the ratings were down, not because of Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway announced the correct best picture with big fonts on the card. Will they come back again for the third time? Who knows?

Jimmy Kimmel and his actor friends that included Armie Hammer, Mark Hamill, Lupita Nyong’o, Emily Blunt, Gal Gadot, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Margot Robbie left their seats in the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles Sunday night to surprise the audience at the TCL Chinese Theatre, watching a preview of Wrinkle of Time coming out March 9, 2018, that was fun a surprise.

According to Deadline the highest ratings for the Oscars was back in 2014 when Ellen DeGeneres hosted. Will she do it again? Can she pull off surprise pranks as Jimmy Kimmel did?  Why do actors have to be hypocritical with the politics?

Sexual harassment is a big issue in the workplace and they waited for 10 to 20 years to tell?  And they ruin lives of other actors.

And women are not being recognized in the entertainment business. It’s a harsh world out there just to be recognized for what they do for a living. They sacrificed everything to tell a story just to be accepted. Even actors they worked so hard to study their craft of acting and end up with sexual harassment. It’s a tough job; nothing is easy these days. Actors have to be careful these days. It’s a new world out there.

Frances McDormand

Sam Rockwell

Big winners such as Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell for leading actress and actor for Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing Missouri, which was filmed in Sylvia, North Carolina. Frances McDormand lost her Oscar award, she put a billboard sign and got it back. Apparently, some craze fans wanted a prize too.

Here’s the list of the winners

If you like awards shows like I do, It’s fun to see our favorites to win. Maybe people tune out awards show because they do not want to hear actors talk about politics. Awards show needs to be fun and entertaining. More like a three-ring circus.

Will the Emmys be fun and entertaining?

The Shape of Water leads with 13 nominations which include Directing, Best Picture, female leading role Sally Hawkins, male supporting role Richard Jenkins, female supporting Octavia Spencer, original score, original screenplay, cinematography, costumes designs, sound editing, sound mixing, film editing and production design. It may win a few, but we have to wait and see. The Shape of Water

Ladybird is an interesting movie, and it’s a dark comedy about a teenager who’s nickname is Lady Bird, and no she’s not a ladybird. Or a bird, but a teenager. Laura Marano from the Disney’s Austin and Ally stars in the Oscar Nominated film.  Saoirse Ronan is an interesting and fascinating actor you may recognize her from Hanna (2011) and The Lovely Bones (2009). Since Ladybird won the Globes for the lead actress, it did not win for best director by Greta Gerwig. However, she is nominated for the Oscar which is better. Watch the review Lady Bird

Three Billboard Outside Ebbing, Missouri. After months have passed without a culprit in her daughter’s murder case, Mildred Hayes makes a bold move, painting three signs leading into her town with a controversial message directed at William Willoughby, the town’s revered chief of police. When his second-in-command, Officer Dixon — an immature mother’s boy with a penchant for violence — gets involved, the battle is only exacerbated. If you go to Ebbing Missouri and find out there’s no Ebbing Missouri then you are lost.  Ebbing Missouri does not exist, but they did film it in Asheville, NC and near the mountains. Road trip. The trailer for Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing Missouri

Moonlight La La Land

Did you watch the Oscars the other night? OMG what happened?

faye-and-betty

best-picture-2017

What happened was Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway, better known as Bonnie and Clyde from the 1967 movie was supposed to announce the best picture for 2017. Apparently, they got the wrong envelope, he did pause for the moment, he could have paused for more asked for the right envelope and presented the right winner, but she blurted out “La La Land”, which did not win it was “Moonlight,” I prefer La La land.

La La Land won 6 out of 14 Oscars, and they were best director, actress, production design, cinematography, score and original song.

Moonlight, tells a story of a black man by following him through the episodes: as a young boy, as a teenager, and as an adult.

And La La Land tells a story Mia who is a struggling actress and wanted to be noticed while Sebastian is a struggling Jazz singer and wanted to be noticed too, And it was a musical dance drama,

jungle-book-visual-effects

The Visual Effects went to The Jungle Book, which beat out Star Wars: The Rogue One, in which they recreated dead actors and made Carrie Fisher younger again. I agree in which it went to the Jungle Book, the visual effects of the Jungle Book were incredible and very creative and complexity of creating animals to interact with humans and making them talk with CGI. Jon Favreau who directed Iron Man directed The Jungle Book.

Emma Stone

Emma Stone won for best performance by an actress in a leading role for La La Land. Ryan Gosling did not win for leading man it was Casey Affleck for Manchester By the Sea, produced by Matt Damon.

Jimmy Kimmel was a great host for the show, I hope he comes back.  Jimmy Kimmel surprises a group of tourist who was on the tour bus to see celebrities houses, but it took a detour to the Oscar ceremony and saw real celebrities, and took a selfie with them.

matt-jim-1a

When Matt Damon was presenting with Ben Affleck, the music was getting louder and louder and find out that Jimmy Kimmel was conducting the orchestra.

In the Memoriam section, they put the wrong picture with the deceased name, in other words, she’s alive. The lady on the left is alive.

The two ladies worked together on 1993’s The Piano, alongside director Jane Campion. Pictured (from left): Jan Chapman, Janet Patterson (the Center, she died), Jane Campion.
