Asghar Farhadi's letter said what needed to get said
27 February 2017 | by lee_eisenbergSee all my reviews

OK, so the most famous incident of "The 89th Academy Awards" was the goof with Best Picture. PriceWaterhouseCoopers is now going to be known as the company that made Faye Dunaway say the wrong thing. More important than the flub is that a movie about gay black man won Best Picture. Even having not seen it, I'd say that it was probably the more important movie.

As for the nominees, the only ones that I've seen in all categories are "Arrival", "Hell or High Water", "Manchester by the Sea", "Captain Fantastic", "Florence Foster Jenkins", "A Man Called Ove", "4.1 Miles", "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" and "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them". It's good that "The Salesman" won, since it drew attention to Donald Trump's Muslim ban. As expected, a bunch of mouth-breathers on Twitter were angry that the Academy gave an Iranian movie an Oscar.

It was inevitable that the ceremony would be half awards, half swipe at Trump. Jimmy Kimmel pulled no punches. That gag with the people on the bus was probably a pleasant surprise for them. I mean, how often do you get to do that? When they announced the most famous car in movie history, I at first assumed that it would be either Herbie or Christine. I should've guessed that it was the DeLorean.

My only real complaint was that the ceremony opened with one of the songs. Isn't it more appropriate to introduce everyone first? As for the winners, I haven't seen enough of them to judge, and haven't been all that eager to see "La La Land" (named by Kimmel as the movie in which white people save jazz). Nonetheless, it's good that a Muslim (Mahershala Ali) finally got to win in an acting category, and that Viola Davis won; she's deserved an Oscar for a long time (this also makes her the first African-American to win the Triple Crown of Acting). It's good that Jackie Chan won an honorary Oscar, but I'd like to see the surviving members of Monty Python and the Beatles win honorary Oscars.

All in all, I was satisfied.
