The 90th iteration of the Oscars has come and gone, and while predictable, subtle nods to the Time’s Up movement and Parkland shooting were sprinkled throughout the night. In general, the award show glided along sans drama, and avoiding any disastrous La La Land-esque mix up, the Oscar for best picture went to The Shape of Water.

Seriously though. Shape of Water was great and just an enjoyable and magical film. We don't have enough of those winning best pictures. I'm okay with this.

Some were just glad it wasn’t Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

Others were disappointed.
We will look back on 2017 and think that Get Out was the best movie and not The Shape of Water. I can promise you that.

The Shape of Water sucked, I wish Warren Beatty had just said The Florida Project and ran off stage #Oscars
