Mahersala Ali, winner of the award for Actor in a Supporting Role for ‘Moonlight,’ Emma Stone, winner of the award for Actress in a Leading Role for 'La La Land,’ Viola Davis, winner of the award for Actress in a Supporting Role for 'Fences,’ and Casey Affleck, winner of the award for Actor in a Leading Role for 'Manchester by the Sea,’ pose in the press room during the 89th Annual Academy Awards at Hollywood & Highland Center on February 26, 2017 in Hollywood, California.

Every experience in my life tells me that if a man constantly erodes the self-worth of the women around him, disrespects and hurts the women who love him, is lascivious and self-serving and a known misogynist, but still makes halfway decent art, he will be lauded and rewarded against those more deserving and marginalized.

Which is to say I’m not surprised by that Oscar win.
