You're Welcome

The Best Part of the Oscars? The Tweets.

Well, if you were like millions of viewers last night who were watching the 2022 Oscars, then you probably displayed as many emotions as most of the Best Picture nominees. 

And if you had Twitter open, then you were probably equally entertained by all of the reactions from yesterday’s ceremony as well. From taking a stand against anti-LGBTQ+ legislation to the first openly queer woman of color winning best supporting actress, and of course the slap heard around the world, here’s your queer round up of the 2022 Oscars, courtesy of the Internet. 

Many were serving red carpet lewks, like Timothee Chalamet, Ariana DeBose, Kristen Stewart, and Zendaya who came to slay.

Regina Hall, Wanda Sykes, and Amy Schumer were the trio hosting the awards ceremony last night. And while the jokes were plentiful, so was the advocacy

Unfortunately, several of the awards would not be televised that night, including some iconic wins – like Riz Ahmed taking home his first win

But for the rest of the ceremony that was televised, it became clear that the night would be very queer.

Ariana DeBose took home the Best Supporting Actress award, becoming the first openly queer woman of color to do so

After winning the award for Best Actress, Jessica Chastain took her acceptance speech time to advocate for LGBTQ+ folks and mental health

We even had a Juno reunion with Elliot Page center stage.

Of course the Oscars wouldn’t be the same without a few performances. Beyonce opened up the ceremony with an electric performance of her Oscar-nominated song “Be Alive”

Although Stephanie Beatriz and the rest of her Encanto castmates may not talk about Bruno, they will sing about him.

Billie Eilish sung her Oscar winning song “No Time to Die”

And of course there was the slap of all slaps between Best Actor Oscar Winner Will Smith and comedian Chris Rock 

And while we don’t condone violence, we did take notice of the double standard at play.

Say what you want, but at least the 2022 Oscars were very queer and very interesting.
