The 89th Annual Academy Awards ceremony celebrates the film industry's best and biggest in cinema for the year 2016 with host Jimmy Kimmel, including awards for best actors, directors, songs, original screenplays and motion picture.
Great seeing Tracy Morgan back, but don't you think he should have said something about his partner killed in that fiery car accident?
Frances MacDormand is a phenomenal actress and her award for "Olive Kitteridge" was extremely well deserved. Ditto for the rest of the cast winners.
Ricky Gervais is obnoxious and I can't understand why they keep bringing him back.
Sorry to have learned of the passing of comic Jack Carter during the in memoriam segment of the show.
Surprised that Julianne Margulies wasn't nominated for being Alicia in "The Good Wife." As usual, the great television show "Blue Bloods" failed to receive a nomination in any category. What does the academy fail to honor this wonderful show with great writing?
Same winners repeat. Dinky from "Game of Thrones," and "The Daly Show" persist in winning. This year Bill Maher wasn't even nominated. Why?
Viola Davis: You made it. You're a terrific actress as we saw in "The Maid," and "Doubt." Miss: You win awards for your acting. Stop bringing up race. To have quoted from Harriet Tubman was ludicrous at best. If you're so concerned with minorities, how about stating that Asians are rarely nominated or winners of coveted awards?
