Are you a fan of long-winded, rambling acceptance speeches? Were you eagerly anticipating the chance to see previous Best Supporting Actor winner Brad Pitt announce the Best Supporting Actress winner by winking and saying, “C’mon up here and get yer trophy, darlin“? If you answered yes to either of those, I have terrible news for you. There’s a chance you’re going to have to wait a while for the 93rd Academy Awards. Variety is reporting that the 2021 Oscars will “likely” be postponed.
Woe is the JLo! Even after a successful year of pissing off peal-clutching parents during the Super Bowl halftime show, and scoring a $146,000 birthday car from A-Rod, Jennifer Lopez is still bruised that the Oscars ignored her performance in Hustlers.
Janelle Monae opened the Oscars and performed an opening number either called “Come Alive” or “Oscars So White.” Janelle mentioned the fact that the main acting categories were made up of mostly white people by letting out, “It’s time to come alive… because the Oscars is so white!”
As expected, William Bradley Pitt took home his first acting Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his role in Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. Surprisingly during his speech, Brad didn’t propose to Jennifer Aniston on stage and tell her that he can’t wait for their child to arrive. No, that Jennifer Aniston Redemption Tour is over now that he’s won his Oscar. Instead, Brad got political.
Despite the fact that Chet Haze is obviously available and ready to work, The Academy Awards will, once again, go hostless. I don’t know, maybe we should be thanking Kevin Hart for his homophobic tweets because now instead of having to squirm while some dude in a tuxedo (trust, it was always going to be some dude in a tuxedo) edgelords his way to glory, as we did with the Golden Globes, we can just sit back, relax, and squirm as some of Woody Allen’s dearest friends try to read from a teleprompter. According to The Hollywood Reporter, nobody even tried to reach Chet on his pager, because things went so great last year.
Selma Blair announced in October of last year that she had been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, and she made her very first appearance at Vanity Fair’s Oscars after-party and she came to slay and not play in an Endora at an Easter party look.
