Remember when Oscars was all about rewarding excellence in cinema?
The 91st Oscars has finally arrived! And so has my first review! After being plagued by so many stupid decisions, one would have thought The Academy would do everything in their power to make this show as good as it can be. With no host, we were all wondering how the show was gonna get off to a start. We were treated to a Queen performance as the opening act. Which wasn't great. The lead singer's voice pales in comparison to Freddie. As soon as the first award was announced, we knew this was gonna be a highly politically motivated show. Littered by African American sentiments, Feminist motives, Anti-Trump agenda, etc., the show continued to disappoint at every turn. Though most of the awards given out were highly deserving, the show felt rushed right from the get go. People getting shut off during their speeches was a common sight. God! Why can't you just let them have their moment!? I couldn't help but fall asleep so many times. Mahershala Ali, Rami Malek (Though I was rooting for Bale) and Olivia Colman were the only good parts of the three and a half hour long snoozefest. Don't waste your time sitting through the entire show and just google the results instead. You wouldn't miss much.
