Hooray! The biggest night in Hollywood! The thing we have desired came true! Leonardo DiCaprio has finally received his first Oscar! Our congratulations to him!
Te ceremony took place at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on February 28. Besides this eye-watering moment, there were other significant ones. Lady Gaga delivered her powerful performance and the host of the ceremony Chris Rock addressed the #OscarsSoWhite controversy.
The second-time host referred to the diversity issue and some shade was thrown on Jada Pinket-Smith who boycotted the 88th Academy Awards. Rock joked that Jada may be on a television show. According to Chris, her boycotting the Oscars looks like his boycotting Rihanna’s panties. The audience broke into laughter when the host reminded that the whole “no black nominees thing” has happened at least on 71 other Academy Awards.
Surprisingly, Stacey Dash appeared at the show. We remind you that the star was criticized after commenting the boycott of the BET Awards and Black History month eliminating in January. The Clueless alum wished a “happy Black History Month” jokingly. According to an insider, no one applauded or laughed when she appeared.

The tune was written specially for The Hunting Ground. It tells about the rape in college campuses. Lady Gaga starred as a sexual assault survivor.
