Influencer Camie Juan took notice the lack of recognition for one of the year’s critically acclaimed films, Lady Bird:
Lady Bird was just the beginning for Greta Gerwig. She’ll tell more beautiful stories and she’ll win an Oscar for them some day ?

Frances McDormand! She’s won every Best Actress nomination she’s had. She’s a bad-ass and she’s extended her Triple Crown 🙂 So happy. #Oscars

The #Oscars’ In Memoriam segment even pays tribute to makeup artists and hairstylists who died the previous year. ?? Local awards shows devote airtime to Face of the Night, Star of the Night, Glowing Skin Award, and what-have-yous. #relevance

This was a great #Oscars I’m honestly not mad about anything for once. So much love for all the winners and nominees, but especially Roger Deakins, Remember Me, A Fantastic Woman, James Ivory, Guillermo del Toro, and Jordan Peele!!! Things are getting better in Hollywood.
