Oscars Social Reactions Round-up: Twitter Abuzz Over Surprises, Speeches

The Oscars brought plenty of drama and history-making moments, and Twitter was there for it.

One of the most unexpected awards went to NBA star Kobe Bryant, who won Best Animated Short for Dear Basketball.

His former teammate Shaquille O’Neal (who had an unsuccessful acting career), tweeted his congrats.

But in the midst of the #metoo movement, Bryant’s win raised eyebrows.

On a more uplifting note, Daniela Vega was the first trans actor to present an award. Her starring film, A Fantastic Woman, won Best Foreign Language film.

Jordan Peele made history as the African American to win Best Original Screenplay.

And his Key & Peele costar Keegan-Michael Key couldn’t contain his joy.

Guillermo del Toro won Best Director for The Shape of Water, where he called out his fellow Mexican-born winning directors.

Frances McDormand had the #timesup #girlpower moment of the night, asking all the female nominees at the Oscars to stand and for the industry to fund their projects. She began her speech by name-dropping Olympian Chloe Kim, a minority woman, daughter of immigrants, and gold medalist.
