There were some great moments from last night’s Oscars ceremony, but there 5 key missed opportunities (according to me)…

  1. Sylvester Stallone Not Winning – It would have been the perfect Cinderella or “Rocky” story – actor wins after being nominated for same role 40 years ago.  “Rocky” gets knocked down one last time. I was actually a little depressed afterwards…speaking of depressing…
  2. In Memoriam Snubs – its bad enough dying – but to be snubbed by your industry after years of great work…Abe Vigoda “The Godfather” and Tony Burton “Duke” from six “Rocky” movies were two of those left out.
  3. Sam Smith Winning – I was surprised his Bond song was actually nominated…it beat the Weeknd and Lady Gaga (especially after her heartfelt performance) – C’mon…
  4. Star Wars Shut Out – It was the best movie-going experience of the year…and the sound was incredible- give it at least one technical award…enough with the “Mad Max”
  5. Alejandro Iñarritu Speech Drowned Out –  After winning Best Director for his second year in a row, “The Revenant” director was giving an inspirational speech about diversity only to be drowned out by music…twitter went off…you gotta read these things better Oscars!
