As stars floated down the red carpet the night of the Academy Awards, there was a definite buzz in the air. On a not-so-sunny day in California, the preferences of the Academy were about to be made known. On the other side of the country (2156 miles away, to be exact) the students of Berkeley Preparatory School were also forming opinions on the events of this star-studded night.

 

The Monday after the Oscars, a majority of Berkeley students could not believe the confusion in the announcement for the Academy Award for Best Picture. Emma Pham ‘20 thought that “Emma Stone looked pretty… and it was funny how Ryan Gosling reacted when the “Moonlight” [and] “La La Land” mix up was revealed.” Kayla McLoone ‘20 said that Viola Davis’ acceptance speech “was very real and thoughtful.”

Regardless of what you thought about this awards season, most Berkeley students admitted that, overall, they enjoyed the excitement of the festivities. Whether you’re in it for the fashion, the comedy or the cinema, the Oscars had something for everybody. If you missed it this year, don’t worry, there’s always next year. Mark Feb. 28, 2018 on your calendars and tune in to next year’s Academy Awards.
