Academy Awards Wiki


After a disastrous show last year, the Academy decided to try and go back to the ceremony. Only this time to keep the show under 3 hours, they decided to have 8 Oscars be presented during the preshow and prerecorded to be put into the ceremony, drawing a lot of backlashes. To add insult to injury, Will Smith smacked Chris Rock for making fun of his wife Jade's lack of hair, which many celebs including Mark Hamill called, "the ugliest moment in Oscar history." The good news is that after 3 straight years of going host-less, they had 3 hosts: Regina Hall, Amy Schumer and Wanda Sykes. And in films, Coda not only became the seventh Best Picture winner to earn a clean sweep but it also made Apple+ the first streaming service to receive the honor. Danny Glover received the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award for his decades-long advocacy for justice and human rights reflecting his dedication to recognizing the industry's shared humanity on and off the screen and 3 Honorary Oscars were handed out. One to Liv Ullmann for her bravery and emotional transparency gifting audiences with deeply affecting screen portrayals, one to Elaine May for her bold uncompromising approach to filmmaking as a writer, director and actress and one to Samuel L. Jackson for being a cultural icon whose dynamic work resonated across decades and generations and audiences worldwide.
