This year’s 89th annual Academy Awards was….super ‘melancholy’, exciting, and at times really fucking confusing. HOW CAN YOU SCREW ‘BEST PICTURE’ UP OSCAR PEOPLE???? CAN SOMEONE PLS TELL ME BECAUSE I WANT TO KNOW! but in all seriousness..I thought Manchester was super depressing, I don’t know why it won so many times, although Casey Affleck (who won the award for Best Actor) did a great job and his acting skills proved to be as good as his brothers. I was hoping that Ryan Gosling or Denzel Washington would win…but unfortunately for myself and Brie Larson they did not. Brie Larson’s sad face after Casey won went viral and so did Denzel Washington’s mean mugging as well. I believe it had to do with the fact that Casey was accused by two women of sexual assault and harassment a few years back. As you know, Brie Larson had won an Academy Award for her outstanding performance in the movie ‘Room’ about a woman called ‘Ma’ who was sexually and physically abused by a man named ‘Old Nick’.
more info on the story here: Brie Larson had to award Casey twice
Brie is also an advocate for victims of Sexual Assault, as am I (not as long as her). So I’m on her side. She didn’t just award Casey once, but twice. That’s a very hard thing to do. I mean I would literally cry if I had to do that. I admire her courage, and bravery. But also i don’t actually think she knows about those allegations against Casey so maybe we’re all just being delusional idiots and trying to cause a commotion. Even more ‘melancholy’ was Jennifer Aniston doing the Academy Awards ‘In Memoriam’ tribute. She got choked up, as she talked about ‘Titanic’ Actor Bill Paxton who tragically died on February 25th from complications following heart surgery. I was a little teary-eyed too tbh. Bill Paxton was such an amazing actor and one of the first movies I watched of his (besides Titanic and Apollo 13) was ‘Twister’ . Just pure talent. But I think it was a really beautiful moment.
Enough sadness n sorrow. I think it’s time for a little bit of rainbows and butterflies! How about the time when Jimmy Kimmel invited a group of Hollywood tourists to the Oscars? That was just incredible and very very sweet. Ryan Gosling even gave a woman a kiss on the cheek, Jennifer Aniston gave that same woman her sunglasses! It was very cool of them to do that because it shows not all celebrities are spoiled, or self-centered egotistic, cold as ice people (not calling out anyone specifically!) But overall the Academy Awards wasn’t too bad. I give it a B .
Now onto bigger and better things.
Here’s a look at some of my best dressed Nominees + a little BTS action of the hottest Oscars after-parties in Hollywood (the style, the PDA, all the fun moments!).

I just wanted to leave you with something. As an advocate for sexual assault, women’s rights, etc. I too believe that no woman should feel obligated to show skin or to hike up their skirts for men, or to feel objected by men. Donald Trump may be our president, but he does not have a caring bone in his body for women or women who have been abused, assaulted or bullied. I believe that we as women should not let him or any other man treat us like objects, objects of sexual desire. I also believe that sexual assault against women in the U.S. or any other country for that matter needs to be prevented. I will not let other women be treated this way by men even if they do win an Oscar. But also please don’t judge or feel the need to bring us down. It’s not going to make you look or feel any better about yourself. So please take into consideration what others have gone through, not just women, but everyone. Thank you!
