The in-memoriam section of the Oscars always has me feeling some type of way.

@ladygaga and her team just won Oscars for Best Original Song. "Shallow" is quite an amazing work of art and I'm glad the song won. "If you have a dream, fight for it" - Lady Gaga There is a very short list of people who have Grammy's and Oscar's. Congrats Gaga! 👏👏
Best Score goes to 'Black Panther.' The score for that film was absolutely incredible. Well-deserved for sure! https://t.co/SiJ10ugPwB
Regardless of the type of film you want to create, you can find inspiration in all genres. A cute animated BAO being inspired by Wong Kar-wai may seem odd to many, but many storytellers love different types of stories and it's not wrong to expand the scope of your vision. twitter.com/theblcklst/sta…
Spike Lee with the passionate speech for 'Blackkklansman' winning Best Adapted Screenplay. Ends his speech with "Do the right thing!" Goes to show you two things: 1. Being passionate about your stories isn't wrong. 2. Value all of your completed stories, even the first ones. https://t.co/N1LrpvB12A
