The 5 best and worst moments from the 2016 Oscars
The 2016 Academy Awards on Sunday night were filled with big moments and truly surprising wins. (How about all those awards for “Mad Max: Fury Road,” huh?)
And, there were some standout elements that weren’t so great, too.
We took a look back at Oscar night and highlighted the five best and worst moments.
BEST: Chris Rock’s opening monologue was funny, poignant, and the best part — no one was safe.
BEST: The video bit substituting black actors into some of the Oscar-nominated films had the funniest jokes of the night, including Tracy Morgan’s “Danish Girl.”
BEST: Lady Gaga’s performance of her nominated song from the documentary “The Hunting Ground” — which looks at rape on college campuses — was the most moving moment of the night. She was accompanied by sexual-assault survivors.
BEST: Leonardo DiCaprio winning his first Oscar (sixth time was the charm).
BEST: “Spotlight” was the big upset of the night as it took home the best picture Oscar, ruining the night for “The Revenant.”
WORST: The conservative Stacey Dash’s brief appearance on the stage to wish everyone a happy Black History Month was super-awkward.
WORST: Chris Rock’s low point of the night was when he tried to pull off this bit bringing out Asian children when introducing the accountants who tally the Oscar votes.
WORST: Minions. Need we say more?
