The 89th Annual Academy Awards ceremony celebrates the film industry's best and biggest in cinema for the year 2016 with host Jimmy Kimmel, including awards for best actors, directors, songs, original screenplays and motion picture.
The top movies of 2018 are honored at the 91st Academy Awards ceremony, where "The Favourite (2018)" and Roma (2018)" lead the way with 10 nominations each, while "A Star Is Born (2018)" and "Vice (2018)" are both nominated for eight awards.Written by
Several planned departures from tradition during the broadcast were reversed after public criticism: First the announcement of a new Popular Film award, then producers' alleged wishes to only feature performances of two out of five nominated original songs and not invite the previous year's winners to present the acting awards, and then a plan to present four awards during commercial breaks and air the presentations in edited form.

Himself - Winner: Best Cinematography/Best Foreign Language Film/Best Director & Nominated: Best Picture:
Thank you. Am I going to get subtitled as well? Thank you, Yalitza. Thank you, Marina. Thank you, Gabriela, Nico, all the cast and crew. I grew up watching foreign language films and learning so much from them and being inspired. Films like the "Citizen Kane," "Jaws," "Rashomon," "The Godfather" and "Breathless." When asked about the Nouvelle Vague about the New Wave, Claude Chabrol said, "There are no waves, there's only the ocean." And I think that the nominees tonight have proven that we are...

I've never really liked award ceremonies in general. I usually could care less about them, but me and some friends gathered to watch it all through the night as part of a tradition and get drunk off our collective nut. The result was an incredibly entertaining (but gruelling) night in that many understandably fell asleep midway through. For that reason, the 91st Oscars will hold a special place in my heart, but that doesn't, in and of itself, make it good.
It's hard not to laugh when "Black Panther" and "Bohemian Rhapsody", both only decent films at best, get as many undeserving awards as they do. But eventually it just got tiring.
There's some real highlights, however. Bradley Cooper and Gaga doing a tearjerking duet of "Shallow", the mere fact that "Green Book" made a deserving, out-of-left field victory as Best Picture, some of the celebrity presenter cameos, etc... It's mostly all self-indulgent fluff as always, but at least it's entertaining. Well, barring the commentary. That's real boring.
