Watched the historic 89th Academy Awards on Sunday, not expecting to see the HUGE mistake with the Best Picture winner, although that was an amusing surprise! But the Best Picture category was the reason I watched the Oscars in the first place. Normally, I would not care very much for them, but this time I had a vested interest in the outcome. As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I was in the movie "Hidden Figures," which was one of the Best Picture nominees! I wanted to see it win so that I could honestly say that I was in an Oscar-winning picture!
But alas, "La La Land" won Best Picture instead ... no wait, "Moonlight" won! That's not a joke! hee hee! It sure appeared to be at the time, what with Jimmy Kimmel blaming the error on Steve Harvey.
Even so, I'm glad that I watched it, not just for the overly dramatic ending, but I got to see myself in the "Hidden Figures" clip they played when naming the nominees for Best Picture! How cool is that?!?
