‘Run to the rescue with love and peace will follow!’

– This lyric was mentioned by Academy Award for Best Actor winner Joaquin Phoenix in his speech. It was a hard-earned victory after 3 previous nominations.

But it was a surprising ceremony indeed! Broadcast hit a new rating low with a 20 percent drop from last year! One of the major reasons could be the absence of a prominent host.

Greatest Rap artist in the world, Marshal Mathers aka Eminem surprised everyone with his performance of Academy Award-winning song ‘Lose Yourself’ 18 years later!

South Korean film ‘Parasite’ made Oscar History by winning the ‘Best Film’ award being a foreign language film. It won 4 trophies in total including Directing, International Feature Film, and Writing (Original Screenplay).

But, one theme that was constant throughout the ceremony was winners emphasizing on social issues such as climate change, human & animal rights, gender equality etc. throughout in their speeches highlighting how Indian celebrities would think twice before making such bold, path-breaking statements against the system and the Government.
