They Gave The Oscar To The Wrong Woman

Or…Why I Won’t Watch The Academy Awards Next Year

Brad Pitt passing out plates for pizza. The tweet that broke Twitter. “The wickedly talented Adele Dazeem.” Lupita Nyong’o’s dress. Lupita Nyong’o’s speech. Lupita Nyong’o’s headband. And don’t forget, visual confirmation that plastic surgery doesn’t always go so well. The Academy Awards were wildly entertaining this year for the above reasons and […]
