“Billie Eilish you better respect Maya Rudolph and Kristen Wiig,” shared one fan, as another added: “Why is Billie Eilish giving stink eye to Maya and Kristen?!”
“Billie Eilish needs to recognise. Maya Rudolph and Kristen Wiig make dumps that are more talented than you!” added a third.

The 2020 Oscars kicked off with a performance by Janelle Monae and Billy Porter; Janelle walked out on stage to open the show dressed like Mister Rogers in a red cardigan.
She also addressed the lack of diversity among this year’s nominees and the absence of female nominees in the Best Director category.
“We celebrate all the women who directed phenomenal films,” said Janelle at one point.
She later added “and I’m so proud to stand here as a black queer artist, telling stories. Happy Black History Month.”
