The 95th Annual Academy Awards were held last night in Los Angeles.  Here are some of the big winners.

It was kind of expected, and it pretty much happened:  “Everything Everywhere All at Once” won MOST of the Oscars it was up for.  Specifically, 7 out of 11 . . . including Best Picture.

The only acting award it didn’t win was Best Actor . . . but they didn’t have a nominee in that category.

Brendan Fraser won that one for “The Whale” . .

Ke Huy Quan won Best Supporting Actor for “Everything Everywhere”.  Which means, along with Brendan’s win later in the night, two of the stars of the 1992 cinematic classic “Encino Man” are now Oscar winners.

Michelle Yeoh won Best Actress, and Jamie Lee Curtis won Best Supporting Actress . . . beating co-star Stephanie Hsu. HERE IS JAMIE LEE CURTIS WINNING ONE: (She thanked everyone from her movie, personal life, horror movie fans, and famous parents, by saying her award was for all of them.)

Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert also won Best Director(s) and Best Original Screenplay.

Jimmy Kimmel did make several references to The Slap, starting with his monologue. HERE IS A PIECE OF THAT

At the end of the show, Jimmy went backstage and flipped over a number on a board to indicate that there has now been ONE consecutive Oscar ceremony without incident.

Then he high-fived Cocaine Bear . . . who showed up earlier in the night to present an award with Elizabeth Banks.

Jimmy also joked about whether Robert Blake would be included in the In Memoriam segment.  He wasn’t.

John Travolta got choked up introducing that segment . . . probably at least in part because it included his longtime friend Olivia Newton-John.

Other absentees, in addition to Blake, included Paul SorvinoAnne Heche, and Gilbert Gottfried.  They’re all mentioned on the Oscar website, along with a few other “snubs” you may have noticed.

Other Oscar Highlights:

Harrison Ford presented Best Picture, which went to “Everything Everywhere” . . . and Indiana Jones and Short Round shared a hug, nearly 40 years after “Temple of Doom”.

Hugh Grant didn’t win any fans after his Oscars red carpet interview. The ‘Notting Hill’ actor seemed like he’d rather be anywhere than on the red carpet being interviewed by model and Oscars red carpet host Ashley Graham. When Graham asked about his favorite part of the awards show, he held up a lengthy pause and then coldly answered “It’s fascinating. The whole of humanity is here. It’s a vanity fair.” When asked what he was wearing, Grant replied “My suit.” Grant could be seen rolling his eyes towards the end of the interview. Twitter, of course, reacted.  Comments included “He was so rude… Maybe he should stay home if he’s too good for his industry of choice.” Others applauded Graham for her professionalism with posts like “Shout out to Ashley for holding up the conversation and getting through that.”

While the Oscars recognize the BEST performances, let’s take a look at the WORST with the 2023 Golden Raspberry Award winners.  Here they are:

Worst Picture:  “Blonde”

Worst Actor:  Jared Leto in “Morbius”

Worst Remake/Rip-Off/Sequel:  Disney’s “Pinocchio”

Worst Supporting Actress:  Adria Arjona in “Morbius”

Worst Supporting Actor:  Tom Hanks in “Elvis”

Worst Screen Couple:  Tom Hanks & His Latex-Laden Face (and Ludicrous Face) in “Elvis”

Both Machine Gun Kelly and Mod Sun won ‘Worst Director’ award at the 43rd annual Razzie Awards for their work in ‘Good Mourning’, which follows a movie star who wakes up to what he believes is a “break up” text from his girlfriend. The movie has a 0% rating on ‘Rotten Tomatoes’. ‘Good Mourning’ was nominated in nearly every Razzie Awards category.

Worst Screenplay:  “Blonde” (People)

Scream VI slashed its way to a huge box office win over the weekend.  The film earned $44.5 million at domestic theaters leading the sequel to an easy journey to number one. Scream made an additional $22.6 million internationally. Last week’s number one film, Creed III, fell to second place. The rest of the top five films were 65, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and Cocaine Bear.

Netflix’s doc on Pornhub will premiere [this Wednesday/ today] March 15th. ‘Money Shot’ will look at the history of the internet’s most famous adult entertainment platform, its controversies and backlash. Netflix writes “As anti-trafficking organizations seek justice for victims, can the online giant protect those from whom they profit, or is this a new wave of censorship for adult performers making consensual porn?” Director Suzanne Hillinger said “This documentary requires us to grapple with what sexuality and consent means when billion-dollar internet platforms thrive on user-generated content.”

As you may have heard, Elizabeth Banks is working on a “Flintstones” reboot called “Bedrock” . . . with Elizabeth herself voicing Pebbles.

Well, the rest of the cast was announced over the weekend.  Here it is:

Stephen Root and Amy Sedaris are Fred and Wilma . . . Joe Lo Truglio and Nicole Byer will voice Barney and Betty Rubble . . . and Manny Jacinto is their son Bamm-Bamm. (Consequence)
