The 92nd Academy Awards was held Sunday February 9, 2020 at the Dolbe Theatre in Los Angeles, CA. The night was star studded and full of memorable moments. While there were many amazing moments that can be found on the Academy’s website, we have highlighted a few of our favorite . 

Hair Love on the Red Carpet

The producers of the Oscar nominated short film “Hair Love” invited Texas teen De’Andre Arnold to walk the red carpet with them. De’Andre gained national attention after his school told him that he could not walk at graduation unless he cut his dreadlocks. This sparked nationwide outrage and concerns for discrimination against a certain group of people. The animated short film is about a father who tries to do his daughter’s hair for the very first time. Hair Love won the Oscar for Best Animated Short Film. During their acceptance speech, the team gave a very special shoutout to DeAndre. Matthew A. Cherry, the director of Hair Love, said in a tweet back in 2016 that he has an Oscar worthy short film.

Woman POWER!!!

Natalie Portman made a huge statement on the 2020 Oscars red carpet. Natalie wore a custom Dior cape that was embroidered with the names of some female directors who were overlooked by the Academy this past year. This year the directing category was full of all male nominees. This is the 2nd year in a row that this has happened and it has caused a lot of social media backlash over the lack of inclusiveness and diversity.

Best International Film

Parasite broke down all the barriers this year by becoming the first non-English movie to win best picture. The South Korean suspenseful film that focuses on class distinction, also won an Oscar for best international film, original screenplay and best director. 


You only get one shot!

Eminem made an surprise appearance on stage to perform one of his hit singles “Lose Yourself” from the 2002 movie “8 Mile”. Eminem won an Oscar in 2003 with “Lose Yourself” for best original song. He was unable to attend the ceremony to accept the award. You only get one shot, well so we thought. After he took the stage to perform, he then tweeted, “Look, if you had another shot, another opportunity… Thanks for having me @TheAcademy. Sorry it took me 18 years to get here”


Diversity Where?

As mentioned earlier the Oscars lacked quite a bit of diversity. Not only was there a lack of female nominees, there was a huge lack of African American nominees. Steve Martin and Chris Rock both cracked diversity jokes.

“Cynthia Erivo is here tonight,” Rock said. “Cynthia did such a great job in ‘Harriet’ hiding black people that the Academy got her to hide all the black nominees.”

Cynthia Erivo, was recognized in the best actress category for her role as Harriet Tubman in “Harriet,” is the only person of color to be nominated in the acting categories, along with 19 white actors and actresses. Martin told the crowd, “Think how much the Oscars have changed in the past 92 years… back in 1929, there were no black acting nominees.” Then Chris Rock followed up with “And now in 2020, we got one.” .


Kobe Bryant Honored

  

Kobe Bryant accomplished a great deal during his life both on and off the court. Following his retirement from the NBA, Bryant even won an Academy Award for his animated short film “Dear Basketball” in 2018.

On Sunday, Bryant was honored during the In Memorial segment of the Academy Awards with a powerful quote while being remembered as both an athlete and producer. “Life is too short to get bogged down and be discouraged. You have to keep moving. You have to keep going.”
