Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
I don't know if this hour long special will ever be shown again on TV, but if you ever get the chance to see it, TAKE IT! I was originally going to just watch the first few minutes, thinking it would be feeble. But very quickly it showed just how TACKY and TASTELESS it was going to be, so I was hooked! Highlights include: seeing Todd Bridges as the crack dealer who gave "himself" crack, the unsuccessful attempts to make the actor playing Gary Coleman seem shorter than he actually was, the newscaster saying a line like, "We talked to Dana Plato's lesbian lover..." on a newscast, Pokemon videos seen in the video store robbery, which took place years before Pokemon was even invented, and much MUCH MORE! Beg, borrow, even steal to watch this - you won't regret it!
