As for male suitors, Jared Leto, who was shortlisted for Best Supporting Actor for “The Little Things,” sported a rather large fake flower on his beige suit coat. And Daniel Kaluuya gave the first speech of the evening, with a technical problem, receiving the award for best supporting role for “Judas and the Black Messiah”.
Despite the lack of chatter, star-blending and booze that are hallmarks of the season’s first awards event, it was a matter of ups and downs even though hosts Tina Fey on the east coast and Amy Poehler on the West Coast have done their best to bring some lightness.
