Like almost everyone else on the planet (except president-elect Donald Trump), we universally praised Meryl Streep‘s Cecil B. DeMille Award acceptance speech, as well as Viola Davis, who presented the prestigious prize to her “Doubt” co-star. In an oration lasting seven rousing minutes, Streep praised the inclusivity of Hollywood, trashed Trump’s mocking of a disabled reporter, and urged the press, both foreign and domestic, to remain vigilant in the years to come. It was a truly inspiring moment from an actress who even after 40 years never ceases to amaze.
Meanwhile, host Jimmy Fallon made us cringe more than just about anything else. From his ill-advised Chris Rock impersonation to his “Chastain-Redmayne” rap, the “Tonight Show” emcee struggled to find his footing throughout the evening, making for an awkward telecast (although we must admit, his opening spoof of “La La Land” was a hoot).
We also applauded that eleventh-hour Best Drama Film win for “Moonlight,” one of the evening’s biggest surprises, and groaned as “La La Land” swept in all seven categories (we awards nuts love an upset or two).
