Twitter Reacts to the Joyful Moments of the 2019 Oscars

The wins that Green Book and Bohemian Rhapsody put on the board at last night’s Oscars are almost certainly going to dominate the conversation about the 2019 ceremony. That’s really too bad, because it’s a double whammy: Not only did Green Book win Best Picture, and not only did Bohemian Rhapsody inexplicably win Best Editing, but it also detracts from some of the really great moments from the 2019 Oscars, and there were quite a few. I mean …

And no one deserved it more (hell, it should’ve been her and not Cuba who won in 1996 for Jerry Maguire).

It was a pretty stellar night for diversity all around, too. Regina King, Mahershala Ali, Spike Lee, Alfonso Cuaron, Hannah Beachler, and Ruth E. Carter all won Oscars, and Black Panther took home three awards. And the one white lady who won an acting Oscar gave not only the night’s best speech, but the best one in years.

The ladies who won best short doc for Period. End of Sentence also gave the night’s second-best speech.

Meanwhile, one of the Best Chrisses, again, proved himself to be the Most Gentlemanly Chris:

Trevor Noah delivered a coded insult to white people, which turned out to be rather deserved.

Richard E. Grant did not win, but he did get to meet Barbra Streisand, so he went home elated.

Melissa McCarthy did not win, either, but as Joanna puts it, she did live her best life out there.

I was not happy about Rami Malek’s win — even putting aside the heinous film for which he won — but his inability to get his tie straight proved to be a fun moment.

This was a pretty incredible moment on the red carpet.

And so was this.

And this.

And this one from an after party.

Finally, one of the day’s best moments went to Anne Hathaway, for this beautiful bit of self deprecation:

See? It wasn’t all bad. Hell, Spike Lee lost, but at least he got in a great dig after the show.

I’m with Joanna here. I’m going to try and latch on to the good.
