Letters to Tuvia Y3/#sol18 5/31: A Very Good Night

Morning T and Slicers,

It was a very inspiring night last night! The spirit of diversity and #metoo movement from the Golden Globes continued at the Oscars  in the presentations and acceptance speeches. And no film took it all.  The Shape of Water, nominated for 13, took home 4 big ones.

I loved seeing James Ivory a wonderful filmmaker take best adapted screenplay for Call Me…  and Jordon Peele, writer and director of the edgy, Get Out take the award for best screenplay.

But this was the moment of the night!

Let’s hope this spirit translates into more democratic movement!

  1. I’m inherently opposed to some of the characteristics that Hollywood has been representing, so I haven’t watched the Oscars in twenty years, but that was a cool thing she did to get some spotlight for all the ladies in the room. Very classy. Thank you for sharing this as I wouldn’t have seen it otherwise.

  2. Normally I watch the Oscars, even when I haven’t seen the movies. This year I only caught a few minutes, and those few minutes were Francis McDormand’s speech. She’s a superb actresss who does her own thing. Did you see that when almost all the women wore black to the Golden Globe awards she showed up in a print dress.

  3. I don’t watch the Oscars since we really don’t go to the movies. However, I do like to catch up on the highlights the next day. This is definitely one of them.

  4. I loved that moment too. And I loved her in the movie. My husband and I watch four movies in the last week before the Oscars. Three Billboards was my favorite. Also watch “Get Out” and Peele definitely deserved that award!
