Here’s Everything You Need to Know About the Oscars

Here’s Everything You Need to Know About the Oscars

Need water cooler ammo today?  You’re in luck: here’s a quick rundown of the most important things that happened at the Oscars last night.

First and foremost: Shape of Water was the big winner last night, taking home trophies for Best Picture, Best Directing, Best Original Score, and Best Production Design. Guillermo del Toro was absolutely stoked to become a double Oscar winner and the critics loved his movie (when he thought they wouldn’t understand it!)

Other major winners were Frances McDormand, for Best Actress in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and Gary Oldman, for Best Actor in Darkest Hour.

Also, Jordan Peele made history because he’s the first African American to win Best Original Screenplay for Get Out.

The funniest moments of the night were when host Jimmy Kimmel joked that the person who gave the shortest acceptance speech would win a jet ski worth $17,000.

On top of that, he led a group of major stars (Gal Gadot, Mark Hamill, Margot Robbie, Armie Hammer, Guillermo del Toro, Tom Holland, Emily Blunt, and Lupita Nyong’o to name a few) to a nearby theater that was screening the Oscars.  He and the crew threw snacks at the audience, who couldn’t believe what was happening, and even utilized two hot dog machines to shoot oversized hot dogs into the audience.  Sure hope no one was wearing their best shirt that night…

Also, the dress everyone is talking about today is EGOT winner Rita Moreno’s!  It’s the same dress she wore to the 1962 Oscars when she won Best Supporting Actress for her role in West Side Story.

But, Gal Gadot, Margot Robbie, Jennifer Garner, Sandra Bullock, Jennifer Lawrence, Allison Janney, Emma Stone, and Lupita Nyong’o utterly shined on the Red Carpet.  Also, Twitter anointed Chadwick Boseman the “Best Dressed” for the night.


The worst dressed was figure skater Adam Rippon who wore a tux that should have been a prop in 50 Shades of Grey because it had very confusing bondage elements on it.
