Alan Rickman, Christopher Lee, Honoured During Oscar Ceremony As Chris Rock Poke The OSCARS

Stars of the movie world who died in the last 12 months were
honoured at the Oscars on Sunday night, with a moving tribute.

The Academy Awards remembered those stars of the screen and
movie world who died in the last 12 months during the memoriam section of the
ceremony with Robert Loggia, Omar Sharif, James Horner and Leonard Nimoy some
of the most recognisable faces on the list.
While Chris Rock pushed the boundaries with his at times
risky hosting style, the tribute was a moment of quiet reflection for the
audience.
This year’s ceremony has been over-shadowed by the ongoing
race row sparked by the all-white nomination list.
Host Rock didn’t shy away from the topic and instead faced
it head on declaring Hollywood as “racist” during his opening
monologue.
The Academy nominated only white men and women for the
second year in a row in the 20 acting categories, leading several A-listers,
including Will Smith, Jada Pinkett Smith and Spike Lee, to sit out the ceremony
in protest.
He continued to give examples of what’s not fair and why
people of colour were missed out of the nominations at the Academy Awards, and
then joked: “It’s not fair that Will (Smith) got paid $25 million for Wild,
Wild West.”
Rock continued: “Damn right Hollywood is racist. Hollywood
is sorority racist…But things are changing.”

Rock claimed that the Oscars should have ‘black categories’.
But was confused as to why men and women have different categories at all
anyway, which was met with applause from the audience.
