This year’s Academy Awards has been shaped up to be a politically charged ceremony with Academy of Motions Pictures Arts and Sciences President Cheryl Boone Isaacs diversifying the membership of the then largely white, older and male film academy. Last June, the academy added 683 new members, 46% of which are female, 41% non-white, pulled from 59 different countries.

Justin Timberlake opened the Oscars with his hit ‘Can’t Stop The Feeling,’ also a nominee for the category best original song. It was followed by this year’s master of ceremonies Jimmy Kimmel’s politically feisty monologue.

Meanwhile, Meryl Streep was given a standing ovation by the audience after being slammed by President Trump, calling the multi-awarded actress ‘highly overrated.’

Oscars also gave tribute to 98-year old Katherine Johnson, the real inspiration for the film ‘Hidden Figures.’ She is an African-American physicist and mathematician who worked at NASA and made great contributions for years.
