The biggest story out of last night’s Academy Awards was not only that Moonlight overcame La La Land—which boasted a historic 14 nominations—to win Best Picture, but also just how insanely that all went down. It was like the Steve Harvey Miss Universe thing, but way more embarrassing for way more people.
It was a Oscar upset on two levels. And the reactions from Twitter came fast and ferocious, as did the reactions in the room where it happened. But before all that, their was another upsetting Oscar moment. And we relate to the celebs who lived through it all with us.
Alleged sexual harasser Casey Affleck won Best Actor for Manchester By The Sea. And we live for Viola Davis’s reaction to their winners’ group shot.

And finally Moonlight, look upon director Barry Jenkins, who damn well better get all the opportunities now. (We’re watching Hollywood.)
