Barry Jenkins’ Intended Oscar Speech

I might have expressed too much anger on Twitter Sunday night after the wrong film was called for “Best Picture” and the reason why is because this flub did not give “Moonlight” the attention it deserved. There have been many articles and critiques written about this already so I don’t want to echo anything you’ve already heard, but the cast of “Moonlight” didn’t have their opportunity to truly shine. Instead, the whole event was directed at Warren Beatty, Steve Harvey, “La La Land,” and now there is even a cover in which “La La Land” and “Moonlight” have to share the spotlight together. That was really unnecessary.

Since Sunday night was such a fiasco, Barry didn’t get to deliver the speech that he intended. That has been released today though and I thought I would include that for all of you to read:

“Given what happened in those last 10 minutes of the ceremony, I don’t know how I managed any words at all,” Jenkins concluded. “It is what it is.”
