Best ending ever!
28 February 2017 | by IpustickiSee all my reviews

You now what!! Warren Beatty was awesome last night...just AWESOME! I loved the guy! he was more funny they Jimmy Kimmel whole night...

-So he opened the envelope, and he noticed that there was something fishy about it, but he wasn't sure what it is. -So he looked at everybody, smiled a bit, looked at Faye Dunaway and he double checked the envelope. -He wide opened the envelope in order to better check if something else in there...but nope, there wasn't! -Again...he looked at everybody in the audience, probably think it "oh damn, what the hell should I do now"...but he was still smiling. -He looked at Faye Dunaway again, and shes like "Oh common Warren, say it all ready"... - Well...now Warren knows he is in deeps...well, you know what...but hell...he decides to check that envelope one more time! You know, third time is a charm... -He literally sticks his hand inside that envelope...but damn it, there is nothing else inside! -He looked at Faye Dunaway again, and now shes like "Oh damn it Warren, just all ready say it! COMMON". - Well, Warren knows he is toasted, but in the last seconds he gets a brilliant idea! -He gives the envelope to Faye Dunaway thinking "Well, you do it since your pushing it so much", and he basically drops the ball in here lap... -And she didn't even read it...she just glanced it and happily yelled LA LA LAND"!! -And Warren is all smiling, thinking, "well, that's that!" - And then the whole hell breaks lose...but Warren is still smiling, cool as ice...

Other then that, I just loved that SUICIDE SQUAD got Oscar for best makeup and hair styling! That wasn't one of my favorite movies in 2016., and it was flawed...but it was fun and I don't really get all the hate. So Im glad it won just so that the haters could lose their nerves. I could care less about that, or any Oscar given last night, but this was still such a pleasure. "The Film We Most Loved To Hate in 2016"... give me a break! Like nobody watched INDEPENDENCE DAY 2 or RIDE ALONG 2...GODS OF Egypt...a lot worse movies than SUICIDE SQUAD. But hey...it was trendy to hate SUICIDE SQUAD. Well, there you have it now...
