There were many groundbreaking awards received. 

“I was most surprised by the best actress award. I thought it was going to go to Cate Blanchett because of her great performance in the movies she was in but it went to an actor in Everything Everyone all at Once,” said Cole Clawson, senior. “The academy seemed to really like the movie ‘Everything Everyone all at Once’ because it won a lot of awards.”

The nominations weren’t the only thing that people were interested in this year.

“The outfits at the Oscars this year were better than previous years,” said Hannah Razminia, freshman. “It made the ceremony more interesting.”

Some also believe the academy also recognized actors who haven’t received as much recognition.

“My favorite award was best actor. I thought that Brendan Fraser (The Whale) winning it was pretty cool just because he hasn’t gotten much resignation for his acting before and it was like a comeback,” Clawson said.
