    I have been watching the Academy Awards since 1981. Never missed a year. And this performance actually made me cry because l was so excited how Miss. Monae made them/us come alive. I was already excited because this was Oscar night. But this was the perfect welcome. By the time she rose from the floor at <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="294">4:54</a> and the music amplified, you could actually feel the energy. l was clapping with the rest of the audience. Thank you, Miss. Monae!!!!

    I truly cannot articulate how much Rebel Wilson's face pisses me off when it cuts to her. Like,, no hate to her I'm not saying she was intentionally trying to be rude, but it just felt so patronizing. Like she was saying, "Oh, um, kinda weird but play along, right?" I can't say that was the intention, but that's all I see.

    Are the flower crowns a tribute to midsommar?

    • castillo_mystery06

      Yeah..I though that..because Dolemite was in there..& could be a small tribute to the films that weren't nominated in this year's awards..or there just could be from Little Women..

    When you consider that the USA still has a big problem with ghettos, due to centuries of discriminatory laws and the oppression of the black community, Mr Rogers intro takes on a deeper meaning. Janelle, I think you're great. #custheoscarsaresowhite

    Shit the bed, that was awful.... the voice is top notch, she hits every single note, her breathing is spot on, she can go high and can go low... but the song is just awful, who wrote this?? She deserves better material.

      @1 _1_ ​ 1 _1_ Read my comment thoroughly before you go to town: "the voice is top notch, she hits every single note, her breathing is spot on, she can go high and can go low.." - in which universe is this complaining about her voice...?

    • 1 _1_
      1 _1_

      @Ingo Filmfreak No she doesn't. You were complaining about her voice and not the song. You don't know her work I see, ok. The only thing I can agree on is her vocal performance wasn't the best but nerves may have taken over and also I don't know how long it takes to fully recover from Mercury poisoning either as that may have been a factor.

    • Ingo Filmfreak
      Ingo Filmfreak

      @1 _1_ Then she should find another song writer....
