The Oscars might be over but we the Indians just cannot get over homegirl Priyanka Chopra's moment in the limelight. And, the undeniable fact that dearest Leonardo DiCaprio finally bagged himself an Oscar. The long dark teatime of 23 years is (finally) over!
The top trends on Twitter for the #Oscars were no prizes for guessing Priyanka Chopra and Leonardo DiCaprio. Duh. Here's what was keeping them there.
PeeCee keeping us posted:
The homegirl charm:
Anupam Kher needs a history lesson. Before Chopra charmed the West, there was a Persis Khambatta.
All the desis in the house!
Desis, between Priyanka Chopra, Dev Patel, Sharmeen Chinoy and Asif Kapadia, we are on fire tonight! #OscarsGoDesi— S. Mitra Kalita (@mitrakalita) February 29, 2016
PeeCee hanging out with Mindy Kaling:
DiCaprio's gushing speech to reporters backstage went something like this:
It all feels incredibly surreal. You hear it on the Internet, you hear it from other people, and the truth is, we always strive for the best in what we do. But this year in particular, I’ve been overwhelmed with such support, really, truly, by so many fans and so many people in the industry. It’s quite shocking, actually, and what can you say except I’m very grateful. I really am.
Hollywood just couldn't keep it down:
