Even without a host, the 2019 Oscars could be entertaining and exciting at the same time, stale and bizarre , On the whole, the good seemed to outweigh the bad, but the bad was confusing and confusing.
We can explain.
BEST: Maya Rudolph, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler
This powerhouse trio of SNL alumni were the first presenters to step on stage and were not hosts (and made us wish they would be). They enjoyed wordplay on the nominated films, including such gems as "Hey Chadwick Boseman, Wakanda plans to finish later?" Rudolph even made a leap into Lady Gaga's legendary "Shallow" riff directly in front of the star we only say
BEST: All the Marvel love  From Chris Evans Fist Pumps for Black Panther s Best Production Design Victory for Michelle Yeoh, who whirls with joy for . Spider-Man: In the Spider Verse to Captain Marvel s Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson rejoice when they presented their awards to Black Panther THREE Oscars, It was quite a night for Marvel fans and their popular movies.

How does the licensing of music for the Oscars television program work? ? Could ABC not afford more than 15 seconds of Queen's entire discography? They were already there … Could not Queen come and sing every time?
BEST: Spike Lee climbs Samuel L. Jackson like a koala on a tree
This was Lee's first year as an Oscar winner after decades of acclaimed filmmaking, and he received the Best Original Screenplay Award from his longtime friend and collaborator Jackson. They hugged and cheered on the stage, and for a moment everything was fine.
WORST: All about Green Book
Hey, what? Green Book was an objectively well-made film, but with a careful examination of the rehabilitation and redevelopment of the relationship between its central figures.

Here is a sexually predatory anecdote about the director.
