6 Times The Oscars Made Us Go ‘Whoa’

Oscars Tiffany Haddish Maya Rudolph

Ok so there weren’t as many dramatic fireworks as last year. But the Oscars ceremony last night was chock full o’ feelings and had us all gasping repeatedly. Here are a couple of moments that had us like ‘dang! wow! yes please more of this!’


When Tiffany Haddish and Maya Rudolph made us wish they’d host every single awards show and also be our best friends.


When Frances McDormand’s mic drop speech made us scream YAAAS at the tv.


When that Time’s Up speech made us feel like maybe the world is really actually changing???


When Mary J Blige destroyed us with music and then rebuilt us into better people.


When Meryl Streep was absolutely everything, per usual.


When Rebel Wilson frolicked around with cartoons for some reason?


Honorable MENtion goes to Jordan Peele for his incredible script for Get Out (which made him the first African American person to win Best Screenplay) and Guillermo Del Toro for his gorgeous speech about how immigrants are the fucking best. Way to go, fellas!


TBT: Maya Rudolph Does Maya Angelou

Honestly, this will forever be one of Saturday Night Live’s greatest sketches. Maya Rudolph’s Maya Angelou impression has us weeping with laughter, and wishing that this was a real show. Who knew that such a complicated and brilliant woman could so thoroughly own Morgan Freeman?

We Can’t Wait To See ‘Life Of The Party’

Ohhhhhh shoot, pull out the hankies. We can already tell that Melissa McCarthy’s upcoming movie Life Of The Party is gonna make us laugh, cry, laugh-cry, and then call our moms. Mel plays a stay-at-home mom who decides to shake shit up after a divorce and enrolls in her daughter’s college. Like, could there be a more perfect set up for a movie??
