I thought for a while there she was going to be stuck in "southern" roles (Drop Dead Gorgeous, Junebug, Talladega Nights, etc; ), cool that didn't happen.

I did think it was hilarious that Kimmel's Moonlight happy ending joke went over everyone's head. Clearly a lot of the audience haven't watched the movie. Full disclosure-neither have I, but I did read the synopsis.

Ben Affleck and Guest

Then playing Damon off as a presenter

That had to be the funniest thing at the Oscars in years.

Unlike a lot of Hollywood, Emma Stone seems like such a genuine person.

I' just catching up now. Surprised that some are complaining about Kimmel. I thought he was a terrific host. Funniest in many years. I'm really surprised how good it's been.

So happy for Emma Stone. She was fantastic.

When Damon presented the award for Best Screenplay and it went to a film he produced, it struck me as a conflict of interest. Shouldn't celebs whose films are nominated in a category not be allowed to present that category?

It happened with some others as well. Felicity Jones comes to mind, even though SW didn't win.

Warren Beatty starting to really look elderly, but holy crap, Faye Dunaway is completely unrecognizable.

What the fuck?!

Did they give Beatty the wrong envelope? Sounds like it.
