Oscars 2020 was a GAME CHANGER…. filled with surprises to score more support… from younger viewers!

The 92nd Academy Awardsceremony, presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), honored the best  films of 2019.

The Show, was broadcast Sunday, February 9, 2020.. LIVE on ABC.

The event was held in the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. (Los Angeles, California.)

Oscars2020  was different from any Previous Academy Awards broadcast that I’ve ever seen! 
At first, I thought the highly acclaimed event was getting a little TOO CASUAL!!! I’ve always appreciated the formal, 
and dignified tone of this prestigious event.
The OSCARS is one of the very few remaining events in the world 🌎 that is fabulous and formal!
The women are glamorous in the finest gowns you’ll ever see…and make a grand entrance on the red carpet… we’re talking Traditional Hollywood GLAMOUR! #HoorayForHollywood! ⭐️ 

The men attending the Oscars always look handsome, and well groomed in designer tuxedos…
I watched…. 👀 
I listened 👂🏽 ….
They had a DJ….. to set the tone for the audience when guests were coming inside the Dolby theatre…. really???
( DJ Questlove) … from the roots was revealed to viewers by Ryan Seacrest… moments before the show started.
I said to myself is this the Grammy’s??? 🤔,
Wait a minute……. it sure seems like the Tony’s…. or… kinda MTV ish….
Rap music 🎶 and all…
 LOL! 😆
I watched a few surprised faces in the audience… 
Janelle Mona’e started things off with a BLAST!!!
In a very spirited performance….. she referenced films 🎞 that weren’t nominated, and the lack of diversity… and snubbed female directors this year…

Monae said: “We celebrate all the women who directed phenomenal films,” said the performer.

…..but with everything happening…people were wide awake… jumping up… with big applause… 
👏🏽👏🏼👏👏🏼 👏🏿👏🏻👏🏼👏🏽
Ohhh-Kay! If the lively musical acts, DJ and rap music 🎼 🎶 is enticing a younger audience… alrighty then! 
I’m all about diversity…. creativity…. and a wide variety of lively and upbeat performances… but hey…let’s keep it classy, stylish and formal…… “K”
Holla if ya hear me
🗣Ok!!!!!!!!!! 👍🏽👍🏽
Tradition in Hollywood 🎬
is still
GOLDEN! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️🙌🏽✨

It’s always nice to have fresh and innovative ideas…
I just hope it doesn’t veer to far off the traditional path.. 
With everyone sitting up at full attention… It turned out to be quite the night indeed!!!! ( Even without a designated host..)
It seemed like Chris Rock and Steve Martin were kinda-like hosts this year…
They’ve both served as Oscars hosts in previous years… and for the record… they were pretty funny!
Cutting edge humor… straight…. no chaser.
All these years later… they’ve still got it! ✨zing!✨
