Ruth Negga for Best Actress is the only one that seems questionable to me. All the other non-white actors who were nominated have earned their place in the awards conversation.

In light of last year's "no black nominees" protests, Ruth may be in the running so Jimmy Kimmel can say on stage "I see there's a Negga in the running for Best Actress this year. Yo!"

With 14 nominations, I was expecting a La La Landslide (please forgive the pun).

But it hasn't been winning in the technical categories it was expected to. I'm curious if Emma Stone might actually end up losing Best Actress to that foreign lady.

Well, my favorite part was Kimmel arranging for a tour bus to send their unsuspecting riders to the front row of the Oscars.

I fast forwarded though most of it, and am watching the last presentation live.

That many awards is really a long shot. Given that even mediocre films can have some exceptional work in just one category.

HOLY SHIT!!!

They just had a Steve Harvey moment times 10000000!

Moonlight wins Best Picture, but presenter Faye Dunaway calls out La La Land as the winner.

The La La Land people get through their speeches before they realize the mistake.

Crazy!

Isn't there some lines from a movie: "You only had one job. One job! ... and you f'd it up.}

Or something like that.

You would think that the Best Actress envelope was already open.

They should have had Kayne West on hand to make the correction. He could actually be useful for once.

It was. Apparently they have two envelopes for each category.

I don't understand why Jimmy Kimmel was apologizing so profusely. He had nothing to do with the error.

I thought he did a good job as host.
