A Breakdown Of Everything That Happened At The Oscars By The Numbers


The 88th Academy Awards went down last night in LA and the focus was definitely on the #OscarsSoWhite controversy. Host Chris Rock wasted no time addressing the issue, doing everything from interviewing movie goers at a theatre in Compton to recreating the Best Picture nominees with the addition of black actors. I think we can all agree that Joy would have been much stronger with Whoopi Goldberg in it.

A lot happened last night and in a show that ran an extra 30 minutes longer, it was easy to miss a few moments. Here are the 88 Academy Awards by the numbers.
