Between impromptu performances, surprise wins and viral moments from the star-studded audience, there was a lot going on at this year’s Oscars.
Oscars 2020: All The Best Moments From This Years Academy Awards
At this point, you may well have heard that Bong Joon-ho’s Parasite has made history with its unexpected Best Picture win, while Joaquin Phoenix, Renée Zellweger, Laura Dern and Brad Pitt surprised precisely no one when they were awarded the night’s prizes for acting.
Still, as any awards show devotee will tell you, the ceremonies are about so much more than who won what.
These are all the key moments you might have missed from this year’s Oscars, if staying up until five in the morning isn’t really your thing...1. First of all, Billy Porter was the obvious winner of the red carpetA year after stealing the show with his infamous “tuxedo dress”, the Pose actor turned heads once again with this ensemble, made up of an elaborate skirt and a sleeveless top adorned with 24-carat gold feathers and platform boots.
Seriously, that’s how you make an entrance.2. But special mention has to go to Kaitlyn Dever of Booksmart and Unbelievable fameThis dress gets the double thumbs up from us for not only being amazing, but also totally sustainable. 3. Natalie Portman also made headlines with her wardrobe choiceNatalie Portman embroidered her Dior cape with all of the female directors who weren't nominated for #Oscars. Check out her explanation here. pic.twitter.com/kyyo2wVMZf— Amy Kaufman (@AmyKinLA) February 10, 2020Eagle-eyed film fans quickly picked up on the lining of Natalie’s jacket, which was adorned with the names of female filmmakers who were snubbed from the Best Director category in 2020.4. And Timothée Chalamet’s fashion statement was also a bold oneOn one hand, we love when male stars stray from the traditional tuxedo on the red carpet, but on the other hand… 5. With no host and therefore no opening monologue, Janelle Monáe kicked things off with this retrospective of the last year in filmJanelle’s performance also alluded to a number of films that were totally snubbed by the Academy in 2020, including Dolemite Is My Name, Us, Queen And Slim and, perhaps most obviously, Midsommar. 
“I’m so proud to stand here as a Black, queer artist telling stories,” the singer told the audience. “Happy Black History Month.”6. And then out came Billy Porter as Elton JohnIn another call-out to the night’s supposedly “snubbed” films, Billy Porter paid homage to Rocketman during the performance, with a quick blast of I’m Still Standing. 7. The first presenters of the night were former Oscars hosts Chris Rock and Steve Martin.@SteveMartinToGo and @chrisrock welcome everyone to the #Oscars. pic.twitter.com/QafOuP3Kvi— ABC (@ABCNetwork) February 10, 2020Together, the duo poked fun at criticism the Academy has faced in recent years, most notably around the lack of diversity in the 2020 nominees.
Chris also suggested that Kevin Hart lost out on his Oscars presenting gig because of “Twitter”, while they both explicitly said they felt Eddie Murphy had been snubbed for his role in Dolemite Is My Name.8. Brad Pitt won the first award of the night, and got a little bit choked up (as did we, actually)Brad Pitt: "They told me I only have 45 seconds up here—which is 45 seconds more than the Senate gave John Bolton this week." https://t.co/Yg9e4wKstH#Oscarspic.twitter.com/VRTWbGMHll— Good Morning America (@GMA) February 10, 2020As he picked up his first ever Oscar for acting (he was previously awarded one in 2014, for his work as a producer on 12 Years A Slave), Brad got things off on a political note, before shouting out director Quentin Tarantino.
From there, he took his speech in a rather personal direction, reflecting on his own career and verging on tears as he did so.
 “Once upon a time in Hollywood… ain’t that the truth,” he observed. “This is for my kids, who colour everything I do. I adore you.”9. Idina Menzel performed Into The Unknown with different Elsas from all over the globeAnd obviously her Frozen co-star Josh Gad couldn’t resist a little dig at John Travolta while he had the stage.10. Taika Waititi dedicated his Best Adapted Screenplay win to indigenous children all over the world who want to create art#Oscars Moment: See the winner for Best Adapted Screenplay: @TaikaWaititi for @jojorabbitmoviepic.twitter.com/iLp6E384Bn— The Academy (@TheAcademy) February 10, 2020The Jojo Rabbit director – the first person of Māori descent to ever win an Oscar – said: “We are the original storytellers and we can make it here as well. Thank you.”11. Maya Rudolph and Kristen Wiig prove to everybody why they need to host the Oscars in 2021Why is it that every year Maya Rudolph completely slays presenting at the Oscars, and every year Maya Rudolph is not given the job presenting at the Oscars? Literally, it makes no sense.
She and her Bridesmaids and Saturday Night Live co-star Kristen Wiig first kicked things off with a skit about being “too upset” to present their first award (it later transpired they were “just acting” and wanted to prove they had dramatic chops).
For their second award, they launched into a medley of songs about clothes, from These Boots Are Made For Walkin’ and Lady In Red to Vogue and You Can Leave Your Hat On.Maya Rudolph and Kristen Wiig are having the most fun humanly possible. https://t.co/8kz7m5vtnF#Oscarspic.twitter.com/B01ZABKPKB— ABC News (@ABC) February 10, 2020It was actually pretty impressive, not that everyone in the audience was sold.12. Billie Eilish is not feeling Maya and Kristen’s unpredictable duetTalk about a picture telling a thousand words…13. Laura Dern"Some say, never meet your heroes. But, I say, if you are really blessed you get them as your parents." @LauraDern dedicates her #Oscars win for #MarriageStory to her parents https://t.co/SKj2exF4dNpic.twitter.com/O6fjjM0Wv6— The Hollywood Reporter (@THR) February 10, 2020We repeat: Laura. Dern.14. Eminem appeared completely from nowhere to perform Lose Yourself...Hours later, we still have no idea why this happened.
Lose Yourself is, of course, an Oscar-winning song, but Eminem didn’t even bother to show up to the Academy Awards that year, so why would he turn up in 2020 (other than the obvious fact he’s got an album to flog, that is).15...and his impromptu arrival got a mix of reactions from the celebs in the audience A real range of reactions to that Eminem throwback (tbh not sure if Billie knew who he was) #Oscarspic.twitter.com/GMDpjc9ZUH— Emma Gray (@emmaladyrose) February 10, 2020the reactions to that Eminem performance were so good #Oscarspic.twitter.com/981WiI8mix— Jarett Wieselman (@JarettSays) February 10, 2020You love to see her hate to see it. pic.twitter.com/gJE4Er2IPi— Danny Barefoot (@dannybarefoot) February 10, 2020Snore-sese https://t.co/z3EUi3KUgt— Justin Chang (@JustinCChang) February 10, 2020We don’t think Martin Scorsese is an Eminem fan. Just a hunch.16. Cynthia Erivo’s performance was absolutely astoundingWe’ll be honest, this was not a song we were really aware of prior to Oscars night, but Cynthia undoubtedly gave the performance of the night with this. It probably should have won Best Original Song too (no offence to Sir Elton, of course), which would have made her the youngest EGOT in history.
Still, there’s always 2021, we suppose…17. Cats finally gets the Oscars moment it deservesWe’re kidding, obviously, but we did laugh at this a lot.18. Bong Joon-ho admits he’s “very ready to drink tonight” after winning Best International Film#Oscars Moment: @ParasiteMovie wins for Best International Feature Film. pic.twitter.com/sYovKBNltL— The Academy (@TheAcademy) February 10, 2020Although most of his speech was in Korean, this one line in English was a true stand-out moment. Little did the filmmaker know, he’d be back on stage a further twice later in the night. 19. Billie Eilish covers Yesterday 
It wasn’t quite the James Bond debut we’d been expecting, but it was still a great performance from one of the world’s most exciting popstars (not to mention an appropriate accompaniment to the “in memoriam” section).20. Olivia Colman charms everyone yet again “Last year was the best night of my husband’s life,” Olivia told the world, with a grin. “He actually says that, and I’ve given birth three times.”21. Joaquin Phoenix gave another heartfelt and impassioned speech after scooping Best Actor 
He name-checked everything from environmental issues to his own past “scoundrel” behaviour, ending in an apparent plea for people to stop drinking cow’s milk and a quote from his late brother, River Phoenix.22. Jane Fonda should win some class of award for the way she announced Best Picture can not get enough of the emotions flashing across jane fonda's face as she realizes history is being made pic.twitter.com/o9dWA0sa1X— chuck (@anakinapoIogist) February 10, 2020And the roar from the crowd afterwards shows just how much goodwill there was for Bong Joon-ho’s film.

Star Wars Director Says It's About Time A Woman Makes A Star Wars Movie
Jan 02, 2024
Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker Sharmeed Obaid-Chinoy is directing an upcoming Star Wars movie that brings back Daisy Ridley in the role of Rey. Obaid-Chinoy will become the first woman to direct a Star Wars film, dating back to the franchise's origins in the 1970s. Speaking about this, Obaid-Chinoy told CNN that she is "very thrilled" to make the movie and create something that is "very special.""We're in 2024 now, and I think it's about time we had a woman come forward to shape the story in a galaxy far, far away," she said.Obaid-Chinoy won Best Documentary, Short Subjects Academy Awards for Saving Face (2012) and A Girl in the River: The Price of Forgiveness (2015).In 2020, Lucasfilm boss Kathleen Kennedy told the BBC that a woman would eventually direct a Star Wars movie, saying that would "absolutely" happen, "without question." Victoria Mahoney was a second unit director on The Rise of Skywalker, but a woman has never claimed a top directing credit on a Star Wars movie.On the TV side of things, The Mandalorian has featured a number of female directors, including Deborah Chow and Bryce Dallas Howard. Chow went on to direct the Obi-Wan TV series, too.Another high-profile franchise that has never had a female director is James Bond. Producer Barbara Broccoli and Skyfall director Sam Mendes have both said they want to see a woman direct a future 007 film.As for Obaid-Chinoy's Star Wars movie, little is known about it apart from the fact that Ridley will come back to play Rey. It is expected that this film will be the first of the three new Star Wars films to come to theaters, possibly releasing in December 2025.According to a report, Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight is writing the Rey movie, taking over for Damon Lindelof and Justin Britt-Gibson.

NBA Names Clare Akamanzi CEO Of NBA Africa
Jan 02, 2024 15:29
The NBA named Clare Akamanzi – an accomplished business executive and international trade and investment lawyer – as CEO of NBA Africa. Akamanzi will start her position on Jan. 23, 2024, and report to NBA Deputy Commissioner and Chief Operating Officer Mark Tatum. In this role, Akamanzi will oversee the NBA’s business and basketball development efforts in Africa and will be responsible for continuing to grow the popularity of basketball, the NBA and the Basketball Africa League (BAL) across the continent, including through grassroots basketball development, media distribution, corporate partnerships, and social responsibility initiatives that improve the livelihoods of African youth and families. For the last six and a half years, Akamanzi was CEO of Rwanda Development Board (RDB), where she spearheaded Rwanda’s economic development by enabling private sector growth. Under Akamanzi’s leadership, RDB implemented several business policy reforms and initiatives that led to significant investment and development for the country, including through partnerships with the BAL, Arsenal FC, Paris Saint-Germain FC, FC Bayern Munich and TIME Magazine, among others. “Clare’s business acumen, international experience and familiarity with basketball and the NBA make her the ideal executive to lead our business in Africa,” says Tatum. “NBA Africa and the Basketball Africa League are well-positioned for continued growth, and under Clare’s leadership we believe these initiatives will transform economies, communities and lives across the continent.” “I’ve seen firsthand how sports can positively impact businesses, families and communities in Africa, and the NBA and the BAL are a perfect example of that,” says Akamanzi. “The NBA has done an incredible job growing basketball and the economy around it across the continent, and I’m excited about the enormous opportunities ahead to build on that momentum.” Previously, Akamanzi was Chief Operating Officer of RDB and Head of Strategy and Policy Unit, Office of the President of the Republic of Rwanda. She has extensive international trade, business and diplomatic experience, having previously worked for the Rwandan Government at the World Trade Organization in Geneva, Switzerland and at the Rwandan Embassy in London, England. Akamanzi has worked or studied in seven different countries and holds an honorary LLD from Concordia University in Montreal, Canada, in recognition of her work in Rwanda. She earned a master’s degree in public administration from Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where she was the recipient of three prestigious awards for academic excellence and distinguished contribution to the community: the Lucius N. Littauer Fellows Award, the Raymond & Josephine Vernon Award and the Robert Kennedy Public Service Award. In addition, Akamanzi holds a Master of Laws degree in international trade and investments from the University of Pretoria in South Africa, and a Bachelor of Laws degree from Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda. Akamanzi has served on several company boards, including the World Health Organization (WHO) Foundation, ECOBANK and Aviation, Travel and Logistics (ATL) company. She was recognized by Forbes as one of Africa’s Top 50 Powerful Women in 2020.
