In case you missed it, last night was the 89th Academy Awards. From #EnvelopeGate, to Auli'i Cravalho getting whacked in the head by a flag during her performance, I must say, it was quite a mess. Here are some of the best and worst moments from the 2017 Oscars.

1. Let's start with Moana.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F02%2F27%2F6362381361603959571391085531_moanahit_360.nocrop.w710.h2147483647.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=272&h=134722753d54c85a462aa9613bba6da37c839cfecde56096c4fec1f4cab82bd4&size=980x&c=617820339 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F02%252F27%252F6362381361603959571391085531_moanahit_360.nocrop.w710.h2147483647.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D272%26h%3D134722753d54c85a462aa9613bba6da37c839cfecde56096c4fec1f4cab82bd4%26size%3D980x%26c%3D617820339%22%7D" expand=1]

Auli'i Cravalho, the voice of Disney's Moana, delivered a stunning performance of "How Far I'll Go" from the film. Though she got side-swiped by one of the background dancer's flags, she handled it like a true princess and never faltered.

2. Nicole Kidman's "Babadook" hands.

I was starting to think there wasn't a single thing Nicole Kidman can't do. And then I saw her clapping at the Oscars. It looks like a gear switched off in her brain, and since when are her fingers so long? What was that?

3. Brie Larson and Casey Affleck round two.

If you don't know about the controversy surrounding Casey Affleck, two women filed sexual harassment lawsuits against him in 2010. They were women working on his movie, I'm Still Here. The claims were settled out of court, leaving many people with a sour taste in their mouth toward Affleck. One of those people being Brie Larson, an actress and recently won an award for her portrayal of a sexual assault victim in the film Room. Upon announcing Affleck's win, she did not clap and did not hug him. This is also not Larson's first time having to hand an award to Affleck. Last month, at the 2017 Golden Globes, she was tasked with presenting "Best Actor in a Drama Motion Picture," which Affleck won. Larson handled her job professionally in both situations, but you can see the disappointment on her face.

4. Chrissy Teigen's power nap.

During Affleck's acceptance speech, Chrissy Teigen decided it was the perfect time to take a nap. You can see her leaning on husband John Legend's shoulder in the top right corner. Alicia Vikander doesn't look too thrilled either!

5. The sugar-filled sky.

A few times throughout the show, candy-filled parachutes fell from the sky into the audience. I loved watching the stars in the audience reach for the candy, like little kids in awe. Here are some of my favorite reactions:

6. Justin Timberlake's opening performance.

JT's performance was a great way to start the show: the crowd was on their feet dancing, and everyone was singing along. Who could sit still during "Can't Stop The Feeling"? Timberlake also adorably danced with wife Jessica Biel.

7. Kate McKinnon.

She may have only graced the Oscars stage for a minute or two, but she always brings the laughs. She and Jason Bateman presented the awards for best costume makeup and hairstyling. McKinnon strutted out, and confidently assured Bateman that they would nail it. She then went on to define "makeup" as the "art of ending an argument" and "costumes" as "the cost of humes." Such a short and simple joke, but it had me rolling. I'm starting a petition to have McKinnon host next year.

8. THAT moment.

You know the one, the moment everyone is talking about: "Envelope Gate." If you missed it, Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway reunited to present the award for "Best Picture." When Beatty opened the envelope, he took a long pause, which the audience interpreted as a joke. However, he paused out of confusion, not for comedic purposes. The envelope he was given was the envelope for "Best Actress," which Emma Stone received for La La Land. Since it said "La La Land" on the card, Dunaway announced the film as the winner. After the entire cast and crew went on stage to accept their awards, they were informed that it was a mistake, and the the actual Best Picture winner was Moonlight. The entire fiasco was captured, and you can watch it here.

Slavery Was NOT Abolished

Jeevti from Pakistan would like to tell you so herself.

Standard.net

Unfortunately, at this time of year, we tend to overlook how incredibly blessed we are. We live in a free world, where we should not have to fear being penalized for our gender, sexual orientation, beliefs, or values. This is a fact we take for granted; in many other countries, simply being born female makes you an immediate target.

My Ethnicity

Hispanic is not a race... it’s an ethnicity. The term Hispanic describes a group of people whose common thread is language and/or culture. I’m a Hispanic woman born in Argentina to Korean parents. I self-identify as Hispanic/Latina and my personal experiences can’t be summarized by the color of my skin or the languages on my tongue. That is because every single person in the universe has a unique experience. Whether someone labels me as Korean or Argentine or American, that will never change my experiences as a Spanish speaker, immigrant, child of divorced parents, Californian, college graduate (Go Bears!), omnivore, writer, or any other label I choose for myself.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.
