Happy for Ke Huy Quan. Seeing him being himself makes me appreciate his performance even more.
Awesome Jamie Lee Curtis thought to thank me in her speech for supporting her "genre' films.

There are no more Hollywood stars like in the past.
The glamour is gone and it's all liberal politics.

Very happy for Ke Huy Quan. Such a humble man. And congratulations to Jamie Lee.

Itís pretty much a certainty that Michelle Yeoh will win best actress now.

Pretty emotional Oscars so far.
The Happy Birthday was a very nice moment. This is turning into the flip-side of last year's sour ceremony.

Very cool to see Ke Huy Quan win! Ariana DeBoseís reaction made it all the better.

Wasnít expecting a Jamie Lee Curtis win but Iím happy for her. Sheís been a favorite of mine since I was a kid.

Glad Roger already has his so I won't be disappointed when he doesn't win.

Seriously how did Top Gun Maverick not get a nomination in this category?

Yeah, was hoping to see a stripped-down Mitski/Byrne performance. The hot dog fingers and all that was unnecessary for that song but whatever

A WB 100 montage featuring a whole bunch of non-WB movies that they happen to own the rights to in 2023 can f right off.

Maybe you need to be a WW1 buff to really appreciate it, but I found it very mono-tone. Watching 40 minutes would probably give you the same experience of watching the whole thing.

However, that three-note musical score is bone chilling, hands down my favorite score of the year. Just those three notes.

It would've been more interesting to hear the extra 20 seconds of a speech imo...

Maybe but they are really lucky to even get the Shorts Oscars on the telecast at all. They need to be brief.
This guy is Exhibit A.

But it's a bad look to cut the Indian lady's mic and then let the British guy ramble on and on.
