Okay—the We Bought a Zoo bit was hilarious (as well as Jimmy trying to play Damon off the stage!).

Manchester by the Sea best screenplay?  Eh, I haven't seen all the nominees so what do I know

 

Might be the most deserved award of the night.

The Damon jokes have been pretty good.

Yea the Kimmel / Damon fake feud has been fun all night

 

Moonlight for adapted screen play wow

 

 

So Hell or High Water is 0 for 3 and Arrival is going to be 1 for 8.  Oh well

Best Director already?  Wow.

 

Wait that's how you pronounce Dennis Villenue?  Huh.

 

I wonder if they'll give it to Mel... nope its La La Land

Yeah, I would've liked to have seen Arrival do better. But it's no big surprise that it's not.

 

Indeed. I didn't expect to see it get much, if any recognition. But it's certainly deserving of more.

 

Chazelle won, to no big surprise.

I didn't see all the nominated movies, but my favorite films of the year were definitely Hell or High Water and Arrival, and its too bad they aren't winning more, oh well

 

Jeez, Brie Larson is still too skinny

 

Casey Affleck won best actor?  Really?  Wow.  The kid was better!

I read an article a few years ago featuring actresses complaining that they're under pressure to shed a lot of weight in the lead-up to the Oscars/Awards Season just so they can fit into those tiny dresses they have to wear to the events.

Jeez I haven't seen any of these films nominated for Best Actress except for LLL which I didn't like

 

I guess Natalie Portman will win right?

 

Oh geez, Emma Stone won?  I just don't get the hype for this movie, it was nothing special

Stone was good, but certainly not the best performance of the year. This was not the time to get her Oscar, as talented as she is.

 

Portman was great, but I guess another win now would still be too soon from her last one.

 

Stone's giving a good speech though.

She was one of my favourites as well. She was also great in Nocturnal Animals. She should have been nominated at the least, over Negga or Streep.

 

Here comes La La Land's big win.
