We are ready? Let’s talk about the evening, perhaps most awaited by all Hollywood stars, the one that manages to make them cry, not for sadness, but for emotion. Emotion for an award that is given to them by virtue of their talent, a sort of recognition that certifies how “great” these people are. We anticipate that there were no awards for the two Italian candidates for the Oscars for “best short film” and “best make-up”. To lead, the “Countdown to the Oscars”, approaching format to the ceremony of delivery of the statuettes, Ashley Graham, Vanessa Hudgens and Lilly Singh. You are ready? Let’s start.

The most moving speeches
A redemption that is certainly deserved and that perhaps stands out among all, that of Brendan Frasen, winner of Best Actor for The Whale. He thanked the Academy for “believing in this brave film” and everyone who worked on the film. He also wanted to recall the beginnings of his career 30 years ago, making a very brief mention of his dark period. “Things haven’t always been easy”, we recall that Frasen was the victim of sexual harassment and for this reason she withdrew from the scene for a long time. The Whale was perhaps his redemption film.
Important awards also won by female protagonists, such as that of best non-original screenplay, Sarah Polley for the film Women Talking and Ruth E. Carter, for best costume design for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. In his speech, Carter thanks “a black superhero who is my mother” and then also thank her Marvel Family.
Among the winners stands out of course, too Jamie Lee Curtis: “I have 45 seconds and I promised I’d be good. I’m not here alone, there are hundreds of people with me, the Danielses, the crew, everyone who made this film, my dream team: we all won this Oscar. I dedicate the award to my husband and our daughters, to my sister, to all those who supported my genre films: we all won this Oscar. And my mother and father, both of them were nominated for different categories“. Ke Huy Quan who won Best Supporting Actor in the same film Curtis says “Keep your dreams alive“. An evening that will remain in the hearts of many forever.
