In one of her Instastories, Amanda Seales’ friend asked her if she was satisfied by this year’s Oscars. She said of course not. The Oscars are not something Black folk watch to be satisfied by. Seales said she “hate-watches” it, like “Girls.” I definitely get it. I had no intention of watching it this year. But then my sister turned it on and it just felt like…why not?! And even though I dipped out 3/4 of the way through to dance salsa, there were still plenty of moments to hold on to, in a largely “not for me” type of show. Check out the Blackest moments on the following pages.

I mean…just when you think you couldn’t love Tiffany Haddish anymore, she goes and does something so beautiful. Quiet as it’s kept, as funny as she is, Haddish also has not only a depth of character but a profound outlook on life. If you thought her red carpet outfit was a little different, there’s a reason for that. She told Michael Strahan that it’s an homage to the people of Eritrea, her people.
