The way they addressed the race issue was, in most cases, horrendously cringey. And for fvcks sake, the Oscar's are merit awards. If you push inclusiveness for the sole sake of it, then there's going to be a whole lot of undeserving winners. Really, the two performances that were completely undeservingly snubbed were Idris Elba for Beasts of No Nation and David Oyelowo for Selma.

The actual awards were so plainly by the book, though. Only surprises were Rylance for supporting actor, and to a lesser extent Alicia Vikander for The Danish Girl.

It was really cringey indeed. Sometimes I couldn't tell when I should have laughed or not. I could sense a certain tensity in the audience, a sort of uneasiness with all the lines Chris was pulling. Also for the most part Chris made his allegiance to the issue somewhat ambiguous. Did you get the same feeling or nah?

I actually really like how they added a ticker at the bottom of the screen showing who the winners would like to thank. It makes the speeches somewhat more meaningful/memorable rather than just being a clusterf*ck of shoutouts nobody is going to remember 3 days later
