We had a feeling this year's ever-political Oscars would culminate during the Best Foreign Language Film category!
Donald Trump once again found his way into Sunday's show when Iran won the award for The Salesman — and the director didn't show up to collect the award.
Filmmaker Asghar Farhadi boycotted the ceremony due to Trump's travel ban, proving that you can keep a country out but you can't stop them from making great art!
Iranian-American space tourist Anousheh Ansari accepted the award on his behalf, speaking Farhadi's words through a powerful letter about the "inhumane law" that creates fear by "dividing the world into the ‘us' and ‘our enemies.'"
She continued with the letter, which called the ban "a deceitful justification for regression, and war." If POTUS didn't change the channel yet, we have a feeling he did after this!
Jim: The James Foley Story may not have sold as many tickets as La La Land or Moana, but it being the true story of a journalist who lost his life in pursuit of the truth gives its Best Original Song nominee just as much impact.
Now that's how you accept the highest honor in Hollywood!
Mahershala Ali may have been the frontrunner in this year's Best Supporting Actor category at the Oscars, but you wouldn't have thought so based on his acceptance speech!
The actor won the award for his small but powerful performance in Moonlight, and gave a humble speech about how the performance was NOT about him — but the real life characters portrayed in Barry Jenkins' drama.
The 43-year-old also thanked his wife Amatus Sami-Karim, who just gave birth to their first child days ago! Wow, he has a lot to celebrate!
The actor beat out Jeff Bridgesin Hell or High Water, Dev Patel in Lion, Lucas Hedges in Manchester by the Sea, and Michael Shannon in Nocturnal Animals.
