Roger Deakins won his first Oscar in his 14th career nomination. James Ivory (one half of the former producing duo Merchant Ivory) becomes the oldest Oscar winner at age 89. Robert Lopez's Oscar completes his second career EGOT, making him the only person to win all four awards at least twice.
I thought it was a good show. Kimmel had some good lines, especially Paw Patrol and the bit about Sandra Bullock films. Loved the montages, especially the 90 years of movies one (hey, Roger Ebert!) The roasting of Meryl Streep was good, too.

Wow, I thought Sammy Sosa was the only ex-Cubs star who turned white! Ba-dum-bum.
Glad Blade Runner got some love. A little disappointed with Get Out only winning Best Screenplay. I still don't know if Rockwell deserved it, because most of the reviews I have heard is he is a distraction in the film due to being a cop that shouldn't be a cop.
Rockwell shouldn't have got it because he wasn't a "supporting" actor. He's basically the co-lead of the movie.
George Michael weighed his options. Maeby had chastised him for not taking risks, and what would be a bigger risk than perpetuating a lie about software just to ignite the passions of a woman? Of course it would be a lie, and since Maeby wouldn't know it was a lie, he wouldn't appear to be taking a risk. Perhaps the bigger risk was to tell his father he was lying, that he came up with it because he wanted his father to leave so he could enjoy what remained of his senior year. After all, he wondered, wouldn't that be the course of action taken by an overtly sexual man, a man who owns a pair of matador pants? He had not responded now for 41 seconds according to his unfailing internal clock, and it was time to come clean.
I loved Jordan Peele winning for the screenplay, but not for the movie. I thought the film was somewhat derivative. I liked Dunkirk winning the sound awards as well. Since I haven’t seen The Shape of Water, I won’t debate that, but I’m at least happy that Del Toro got an award there. He got shafted a few years ago for Pan’s Labyrinth, so I’ll give him credit here.
