This past Sunday the 26th of February was the 89th Annual Oscar Awards. The award show in which you find out the Best Actor/Actress, Best Animated Film, Best Original Song, and the always anticipated Best Picture. This year’s host was comedian and TV host Jimmy Kimmel. Kimmel brought some lighthearted jokes to keep the eventful night alive. From snacks raining down on the nominees to reading Mean Tweets, let’s highlight the main events of the night.
This year’s Oscars made history by Damien Chazelle, the youngest at 32 years old to win an Oscar for Best Director on his movie La La Land. Viola Davis’ acceptance speech was thought to be one of the best of night and most moving. Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spener, and Janelle Monae welcomed Katherine Johnson, a true NASA icon, onto the stage. Kimmel also surprised unsuspecting guests that thought they were seeing an attraction, but ended up seeing their favorite stars. Justin Timberlake starts the show with his song Can’t Stop the Feeling. These are some of the great moments that occurred during the Oscars.
