At this year’s Oscars, viewers were given a montage of the films seen over 90 years and thanking audiences for watching them. Social media reacted mostly positive to the montage though some noted that it went too long or that montages should be saved for those who are dead. The montage certainly contained many great clips of some awesome movies throughout the years. The montage was set to the Love Actually song at the 2018 Oscars and proved to be effective.

I’m a sucker for a good montage — and that may be one of my favorite montages ever.#Oscars

Enjoying this completely generic and unspecific montage about movie making. #Oscars

Ah man, this movie montage makes me love movies so much! They’re the best! Ebert, Indiana Jones, Interstellar, Nicholson, Star Trek in here! I don’t even know what it’s for but I’m loving it. #Oscars

The 90th Academy Awards comes amid a tumultuous period for Hollywood. #MeToo and the “Time’s Up” movements will cast a long shadow over the ceremony, hosted by Kimmel for the second year in a row. The allegations against Harvey Weinstein have roiled Hollywood. Three of his accusers are expected to be presenters. And the wide-open best picture race could make for some suspense in the final minutes of the show. “The Shape of Water,” which leads all films with 13 nominations, is locked in a tight race for best picture with “Get Out” and “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.”
What did you think of the montage of the 90 years of film at the Oscars? What do you think of this year’s Oscars hosted by Kimmel? Let us know in the comments section.
