The Oscars were for the 90th time distributed. In his openingsmonoloog went presenter Jimmy Kimmel (who last year presented) directly to the elephant in the room: “When your name is called, then continue to do it. We should just double-check that you really have won’, he told the packed audience in the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. Last year was accidentally the Oscar for best film was awarded to La La Land, while Moonlight, the real winner was.

Kimmel also went extensively into Harvey Weinstein, and the #MeToo movement that the fall of Weinstein has brought about. Kimmel pointed to the large Oscarbeeld on the stage and said: ‘Oscar is the most beloved and respected man in Hollywood, for a very good reason. He keeps his hands where you can see them, never say something onbeleefds and the most important, he has no penis.’ Further, said Kimmel about sexual misconduct in the workplace: ‘The world is watching us. We must set an example. If we are successful, do women only with harassment to have to deal all the time on all other places where they are going.’

Halfway through the evening names Ashley Judd, Salma Hayek and Annabelle Sciorastage. The actresses are a few of the women who Weinstein accused of sexual harassment and took their moment at the Oscars to all the women who have come forward in recent years, within and outside of Hollywood, to thank them for their courage.

Diversity in Hollywood

It was during the evening regularly looks at the importance of inclusiveness in Hollywood. For example, when the Pixar film, ‘Coco’, about the Mexican Day of the Dead, the Oscar for best animated film won. ‘Coco is proof that art can change the world and connect,” said producer Darla K. Anderson. “And that can only happen if we have a place where everyone has the feeling that he is being heard by others.” Her colleague Lee Ulkrichfell on her: “People in the margin have the right to feel that they belong. Representation matters.’

Earlier in the evening had actors Lupita Nyongo (Black Panther) and Kumail Nanjiani (The Big Sick) already drew attention to the so-called ‘Dreamers’ – American immigrants without official residence permit for months the subject of fierce political debate. Nyongo and Nanjiani are both immigrants (Nyongo comes from Kenya, Nanjiani from Pakistan) and told how she dreamed of ever in Hollywood. “We are also dreamers. Dreams are the foundation of Hollywood, and dreams are the foundation of America.”

When comediennes Tiffany Haddish , and Maya Rudolph, the Oscar for documentary and short films uitreikten, they made jokes about that the Oscars still ‘white enough’. It referred them to the criticism of a number of years ago when there was virtually only white nominees were. ‘Don’t worry,” said Haddish, ‘there are backstage still sat white people!’

The short action Haddish and Rudolph was on Twitter with much enthusiasm, and there was already a few times suggested: we see here the presenters of next year?
