I’ve written enough criticisms about the Oscars recently.1 On to happier things!

Congratulations to CODA for its momentous wins.

Congrats to Greig Fraser on his overdue cinematography win for Dune.

Congrats to Questlove, et al. for Summer of Soul (…or, When the Revolution Could Not Be Televised). They (and everyone else) deserved a moment that wasn’t overshadowed.

Congrats to Japan and Ryusuke Hamaguchi for their win with the incredible Drive My Car.

Some great films and talented artists were honored last night.
