Snowboardings Night at The Oscars

No, we didn’t get tickets or sneak into the Oscars, and no this isn’t a Last Resort episode from Stan spoofing The Academy Awards, but if you were listening to Frances McDormand’s Best Actress acceptance speech for her role in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, you might have heard her mention a certain rider to the general masses. Call contest snowboarding what you want, but Chloe Kim getting a shoutout (with the correct trick call) at the Oscars during the small allotted time available to these starts for their years of hard work is pretty huge.

“Okay, so I’m hyperventilating a little bit. If I fall over, pick me up cause I’ve got some things to say. So I think this is what Chloe Kim must have felt like after doing back-to-back 1080s in the Olympic halfpipe. Did you see that? Okay, that’s what it feels like.”- Frances McDormand

We aren’t sure if McDormand snowboards, but we will definitely get back to you on that. In the meantime, we will be watching Three Billboards.
