If you watched the Oscars last night, you probably noticed how awkward it was, but considering the record low ratings, chances are you didn’t see it. What was so awkward? Well #OscarsSoWhite was a huge issue and instead of addressing the problem, the academy poked fun at it through host Chris Rock.

“Well I’m here at at the Academy Awards, otherwise known as the White People’s Choice Awards,” Rock said at the beginning of the show.

Throughout the night, race was brought up again and again, always in jest. The ratings seem to reflect the lack of interest in the dated awards ceremony. With numbers at an eight-year low, they were down six per cent from last year when Neil Patrick Harris hosted. I guess Al Sharpton’s boycott worked!

While the show itself isn’t getting much acclaim, the Oscar winners sure are.  Yes, Leo won and so did Brie Larson. Here’s a list of all the winners.brie larson best actress oscars 2016 room
