    Parasite for Best Picture and Director.
    Olivia Colman.

    The wins that made me feel like sometimes the best work really does get recognised. Incidentally also the speeches that have high rewatchability factor.

    This year alone, they outdid themselves honoring PARASITE with its wins but I really wish they had nominated some of the actors as they truly deserved it. It especially makes me sad that this particular performance of Laura Dern netted her an Oscar when Cho Yeo-Jeong, Park So-dam, and Lee Jung-eun were right there.

    I still love that MOONLIGHT pulled it off, and even if I wouldn’t have personally voted for it, I also love that THE SHAPE OF WATER did the same.

    Acting wins I’ve loved:

    Kathy Bates for MISERY is such an awesome win. It just doesn’t seem like the kind of role they would’ve gone for.

    It’s also funny to think that the following year, Anthony Hopkins was not even considered the frontrunner to win for LAMBS. Nick Nolte was the odds on favorite…and imagine how that win would’ve looked like nowadays.

    Two in recent memory are Casey Affleck and Olivia Colman. I now Affleck is a controversial person, but he still delivered one of the greatest performances of all time and was by far the most deserving of any actor that year. And while I would’ve been happy to see Glenn Close finally win, few will argue that Colman gave a performance for the ages and richly deserved her trophy. Part of why these are some of the best decisions is because they were surprising. I can’t remember how close Affleck vs Washington was, but I know that Washington eventually had the lead over him due to that SAG win. I predicted Affleck till the end, but I think that may’ve been due to stubbornness rather than reason. Meanwhile, very few thought Colman would take it. In hindsight we shouldn’t have downplayed her chances as much due to her victories at the Globes and Bafta, but she wasn’t competing against Close at the Globes and she’s a British national treasure so the Bafta win wasn’t surprising. It seemed like Close’s overdue status would clinch the win, but quality truly prevailed.

    Never has someone winning two Oscars been so universally agreed to be right.
