Eager to see the Image awards this week.

For which aspects of the production would you like the most feedback?

Kudos for the Oscars show, Mr. Reggie!  They need to bring you back next year-

I enjoyed Chris Rock's monologue, explaining what Hollywood racism tends to be about..  ;)

I really enjoyed the skits with the black actors interacting with the nominated films.  Especially Leslie Jones' part, lol..

The "man on the street" segment was priceless.  What theater was that at?

Was that Dave Grohl from Foo Fighters during the "in memoriam" segment?

"Fight the Power" as Chris Rock's intro and the exit music was a subversive, poignant choice.

The Girl Scouts segment was a trip, but I had to fight off the urge to think about a pimp joke when Chris was all about "okay girls... get that money!!" ::)

Stacey Dash was lovely, though I guess 99% of people had no idea what the gag was about.. except the Weeknd.

Oh-- what movie was The Weeknd's song from, anyway?  Good performance.

The cameos by R. Marcus Taylor as Suge were on point, especially since he deserved a Supporting Actor nomination for Straight Outta Compton.
Sarah Silverman was... her usual self, I guess.  I don't get her half the time..

I dug Louis CK's statements regarding the Best Documentary category..

Leo DiCaprio's speech seemed very heartfelt, as did Alejandro Innaritu's, for The Revenant.

I don't know that I was super-surprised at any of the wins except I figured Mr. Stallone was a shoe-in for his Rocky portrayal in Creed.  But kudos to Mr. Rylance..

Great show! Oscars

Rock's monologue? I thought it was awkward.
 
Ratings?

Mad Max?

I'm glad "Spotlight" won best film. you know why
