If you didn’t watch the Academy Awards this year, you missed many firsts, An openly Afro-Latina gay woman won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her portrayal as Anita in the West Side Story remake. Apple TV became the first video streaming on-demand company to win an Oscar beating Netflix. Academy award for best actress went to Jessica Chastain.

Oh, and Will Smith slapped Chris Rock on national TV.
