Here are some of the absolute best things that happened at the 2018 Academy Awards.
Attention all NISians, if you haven’t already heard, the 90th Academy Awards (aka the Oscars) just took place! It was a celebratory extravaganza that was hosted by the one and only Jimmy Kimmel. It was an overall spectacular event, but for those of you who missed it don’t worry about it because here’s a list of all the best moments that occurred.
What are the Oscars? — talk about this event like no one knows what you’re saying!
1. Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Stone
One of our favorite dynamic duos were having a magnificent time at the Oscars together, but there was just one moment in particular that stood out between them. First of all, some of you may or may not know that at last year’s Oscars there was a grand mistake in regards to which movie beat the other. One of the movies in the running was La La Land which starred Emma Stone. So, when Jennifer Lawrence was listening to awards being given out she just knew she had to poke fun at her best friend’s unfortunate loss the year before.
2. Adorable moment with BB8 and Oscar Isaac
For all Star Wars lovers, you unquestionably must witness the sickeningly cute moment where Oscar Isaac gives BB8 a tiny little belly rub. Even though he’s a droid it doesn’t mean he didn’t appreciate the little belly rub. Therefore, on behalf of BB8 and all humanity we thank you Oscar Isaac.
3. Aren’t Jet Skis meant for the water?
The ever-ostentatious Helen Mirren decided to take an above and beyond step in the Oscars. She thought it would be best to take a victory ride on a Jet Ski with a winner of an award. Although it sounds a bit odd trust me when I say it was a pretty cool moment.
4. Kobe Bryant won an academy award?
Most of you know Kobe Bryant for his glorious athletic abilities in the basketball world, but what about for his short film ideas? Well if you didn’t it’s time you did because of the fact that he just won an award for one of his truly inspiring short animated films. He really is an inspirational man because once he left us with these words we were in awe, “I mean, as basketball players, we are really supposed to shut up and dribble. But I am glad we do a little bit more than that.”
5. That one part of the Oscars where Jimmy Kimmel handed out candy with celebrities.
One of the best things that could’ve ever happened at the Oscars is Jimmy Kimmel rounding up celebrities to hand out baskets of candy with him. It may sound odd, but it was amazing. Just imagine celebrities like I don’t know let’s say Margot Robbie, Lupita Nyong’o, and Gal Gadot coming up to you with free candy. How much more awesome could life get?
6. Tiffany Haddish and Maya Rudolph
A moment that’ll surely be talked about for a while is the comedy gold those two women were doing. The chemistry between those two was undeniable and the laughs they brought to the audience was unforgettable. So, besides Tiffany Haddish’s obsession with Meryl Streep, these two women are people you want to meet.
7. Last, but not the least in the slightest bit, is Frances McDormand.
To finish off our list we have a truly touching moment to take into consideration. That moment is the very one that has Frances Mcdormand giving a stunning Emmy-worthy acceptance speech. It was the fact the she gave all women nominees the ability to stand up with her as she accepted her award. This scene was the epitome of Girl Power.
