The Oscars

Well, the Oscars were last night, which means we’re finally out of the 24/7 jostling of awards season! The bad news is, we’re now in the twilight zone between Oscar season and the summer movie season where all the movies are just forgettably okay. Anyway, let’s get to the winners of the night, shall we?

And look, let’s just address this really fast: They kind of bungled the way they treated people of color last night. It was bad enough that all the acting nominees were white people, but between the way they kept cutting to Octavia Spencer to make sure she was watching the Oscar predictions and the mispronunciation of names and then Sean Penn making that weirdly uncomfortable green card joke when Birdman won Best Picture … yeah, you guys, not great. Then you had Neil Patrick Harris hosting–which should have been fun but somehow it all went horribly wrong.
