I was so elated about all of this. Yahyah pulling himself together to make a beautiful speech and then screaming/running towards his friends before they cut him off was great lol

Jim Parsons was (for some reason) the favorite on Goldderby so i was thrilled when Yahya won, he deserves it and he is so handsome

As someone who watched Hollywood, I could not begin to understand how he was the favourite. I walked away from that series thinking that he was the worst actor there. He was so over the top in every scene.

i think because there were 3 Watchmen actors so maybe the predictors thought they would split the vote, but besides that?? i don't see it, Jim Parsons doesn't deserve more undeserving awards, also i can't see him beyond Sheldon Cooper, sorry

Hollywood in general made my skin crawl. I liked the concept but it was so poorly executed and Jim Parsons was ridiculously over the top in his role.

uzo leaving her seat shouting "mommy!" was so sweet, i always think about the story she told about her mother's response to uzo wanting to change her name so people at school could pronounce it more easily

That one really stuck with me and I use it when students go "yeah no its fine" when I ask how they want their name pronounced. It's a small show of respect to use someone's name correctly.

Uzo’s acceptance speech was so pure and genuine.
