Well, it was the Oscar’s last night and I stayed up for some part of it.
This year was odd for me because I wasn’t really hyped about any of the acting noms. It had been shaping up to be a predictable affair.
I must say that I wanted Chris Nolan to win for Best Director as I have loved most of his films but I knew his chances were slim as he hadn’t won any of the prior awards that led up to the Oscar’s.
I was happy for Jordan Peele for his Screenplay win and I must say the thought of addressing Kobe Bryant now as an Oscar winner is surreal.
I however hoped “This is Me” got the win for Best Original Song. See, I am still upset with Benj and Justin (the writers of the song) for winning last years Oscar’s and preventing Lin Manuel from getting his EGOT. I however liked the message of the song and heck – they even won the Golden Globes for it.
Unfortunately they were going up against a powerhouse and previous Oscar winners in The Lopez’s. For the record this writing duo had already gotten their EGOT when they won for Frozen’s “Let it Go”.
Last night I finally heard a rendition of their song featuring Miguel and when they won I couldn’t fault them for it.
In fact I will now have to go watch Coco to experience the song in the movie…
