Just kidding. I never have,never will waste a minute of the precious little time I have left of my life watching a bunch of posers with overinflated egos and way too much time on their hands indulge themselves in an orgy of self-congratulations and espousing their favorite liberal propaganda for the entire world to be awed by their awesomely awesome awesomeness. I perused the interwebs for some stuff about the gala this past evening,and the UK Telegraph had an orgy of coverage. I’m trying to do this like CtH or Grunt would post this. No promises. Regular stuff in reply section.

5 moments when politics took center stage at the 2015 Oscars
1) Racial diversity
Politics took center stage right off the bat, when host Neil Patrick Harris referred to the #OscarsSoWhite debate.
“Tonight we honor Hollywood’s best and whitest — sorry, brightest,” he said, an ode to the controversial fact that the year’s acting nominees were all white
2) Gender pay gap
The comments were likely sparked by the email hack on Sony Pictures that revealed Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams made significantly less than their male co-stars.
Singer John Legend brought up voting rights, the incarceration rate of black men and Selma in his acceptance speech for his song “Glory” with Common from the movie “Selma.”
4) Snowden’s Oscar
“CITIZENFOUR,” which focuses on National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden, won for best documentary feature. Snowden’s girlfriend, Lindsay Mills, joined director Laura Poitras, producer Dirk Wilutzky and journalist Glenn Greenwald onstage to accept the award.
“The subject of ‘Citizenfour,’ Edward Snowden, could not be here tonight for some treason,” Neil Patrick Harris said to laughs as the winners walked offstage.
5) Sean Penn’s Immigration Joke
