It isn't easy to offend Twitter, but the Oscars outrage started early on Sunday when Ryan Seacrest was still E! News' choice to host its red carpet coverage. And the backlash kept coming when Kobe Bryant won his first Oscar in the #MeToo era with a rape allegation casting a shadow over his work, while those watching the Academy Awards telecast did not appreciate Gael Garcia Bernal's singing voice.
Tiffany Haddish put smiles on people's faces, as usual, while people drooled over Oscars presenters Gal Gadot and Armie Hammer. The first teaser trailer for Disney's "Mary Poppins Returns" also dominated the social media platform for a bit after it debuted during the ceremony.
But before you watch that, take a peek at some of the overwhelmingly negative reaction E! got for sticking with Seacrest.
E!'s top personality, who also executive produces shows including "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," maintains his innocence after a stylist that worked for him accused him of sexual misconduct, but after she came forward with more unsettling details, people weren't exactly in the mood to see him on the Oscars red carpet. He only got two nominees to talk to him, so perhaps Hollywood stars weren't in the mood to see him, either.
I am confused by this #ERedCarpet. Ryan Seacrest, who has been accused of workplace sexual misconduct, is on the red carpet. His female counterparts are across the street in less-prominent roles. #Oscars
The #ERedCarpet for the #Oscars is a hot mess because they have Guiliana stuck at some hotel in Siberia, and a 30-second delay to protect Ryan Seacrest from #Metoo #TimesUp confrontations. Not a good look, @ENews.
The breakout star of "Girls Trip" was once again one of the best parts of the evening, getting noticed for her traditional Eritrean dress she wore to honor her father, and in typical Haddish fashion, chasing down Meryl Streep on the red carpet.
Okay actually Tiffany Haddish in traditional Eritrean dress is also good, bc the elderly doorman watching the red carpet with me LIT UP when he saw it, and left his desk to explain to me that this style of dress is from his home country and he finds the embroidery so beautiful... pic.twitter.com/3bNTlnrwvp
It's legitimately incredible to me that Michael Strahan has gone from one of the most terrifying football players of all time to the most wildly sycophantic interviewers in the history of the red carpet
As much praise as this Oscar-nominated movie got, it was met with just as much criticism, considering one of the main characters was both racist and homophobic. The outrage was amplified when Sam Rockwell, the actor who portrayed said racist and homophobic character, won the Best Supporting Actor trophy.
Definitely feeling conflicted about Sam Rockwell's #Oscars90 win considering the issues around racism in three billboards. But also, I love him.
The "Coco" star sang the Best Original Song nominee "Remember Me" and, uh, it didn't go so well in the eyes and ears of many viewers. But on the bright side, the duo behind the song (Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez) did end up winning the Oscar, and the movie itself won the Best Animated Feature Film Oscar.
I love Coco, I love the song Remember Me, and I love Gael Garcia Bernal... but why on earth did they have him sing that song?!? Sweetie, no. #oscars
Well, who didn't see this coming? Perhaps many thought the former NBA star wouldn't actually win in the Best Animated Short Film category, and then a lot of people were upset when he did -- but his fans were still stoked for him to be recognized for "Dear Basketball," which he wrote and starred in.
Kobe Bryant joins a long line of men who have both won an Oscar & have been accused of rape. #MeToo #Oscars
