This years Oscars had its share of controversy from the moment the nominations were announced and host Chris Rock wasted no time addressing it. His opening monologue mocked Will and Jada Pinkett Smith for boycotting the show, and some would say his remarks hit the spot.
The night’s biggest moment came when Leonardo DiCaprio finally won his first Oscar for Best Actor in The Revenant. This year marked his fifth nomination. He ended his speech by getting a little political and stressing the threat of climate change.
The night’s big winner was Mad Max: Fury Road which took home six awards.
Some other highlights:
- The sketch about finding roles for black actors in this year’s movie which featured Whoopi Goldberg, Tracy Morgan, and Leslie Jones.
- The crowd went quite silent when Chris Rock brought out Stacey Dash for a gag about her being the new recruiter hired to find black people to join the Academy.
- Chris introduced Michael B. Jordan as a “should’ve been nominee.”
- C-3PO , R2-D2, and BB-8 took the stage to recognize John Williams for his 50th Oscar nomination.
