I've never really liked award ceremonies in general. I usually could care less about them, but me and some friends gathered to watch it all through the night as part of a tradition and get drunk off our collective nut. The result was an incredibly entertaining (but gruelling) night in that many understandably fell asleep midway through. For that reason, the 91st Oscars will hold a special place in my heart, but that doesn't, in and of itself, make it good.
It's hard not to laugh when "Black Panther" and "Bohemian Rhapsody", both only decent films at best, get as many undeserving awards as they do. But eventually it just got tiring.
There's some real highlights, however. Bradley Cooper and Gaga doing a tearjerking duet of "Shallow", the mere fact that "Green Book" made a deserving, out-of-left field victory as Best Picture, some of the celebrity presenter cameos, etc... It's mostly all self-indulgent fluff as always, but at least it's entertaining. Well, barring the commentary. That's real boring.
