And The Oscar Goes To....
Film's biggest night happened yesterday at The Dolby Theater in LA with comedian Jimmy Kimmel steering the ship. He started with a very clever bit announcing whoever had the shortest acceptance speech would win a jet ski, with the help of Helen Mirren of course.
And in true Kimmel fashion, he took a group of stars including Armie Hammer, Emily Blunt, Gal Gadot and more across the street to a theater full of unsuspecting movie goers to thank them for going to the movies.
Comedian Tiffany Haddish & actress Maya Rudolph teamed up for a hilarious bit where they addressed #OscarsSoWhite with #OscarsSoBlack.
Francis McDormand stole the show however with her acceptance speech for Best Actress in a Leading Role for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri by calling on all her fellow female nominees in all categories to stand so she could plead her case for more female stories in Hollywood.
And thankfully, Faye Dunaway & Warren Beatty were given a second chance and didn't mess it up!

OJ Simpson Basically Confesses In Never Before Seen Interview
Fox is preparing to air what they're calling OJ Simpson: The Lost Confession? where OJ tells the story of if he hypothetically killed his wife Nicole Brown Simpson & waiter Ron Goldman. He uses the third person for the majority of it but does at one point switch over to the first person which some are taking as a confession. He also mentions he "hypothetically" would have an accomplice if he did commit the murders. It's all very strange. It's set to air on Fox next Sunday, March 11th.
