About that Kanye Moment at the Oscars: 'He Just Wanted to Talk About Himself' (Video)

Sexism at the Oscars . . . Elinor Burkett explains the so-called "Kanye moment," when she took the mic from her Oscar co-winner on the stage at the Academy Awards. He was rude and ran to beat me to the stage, he wanted to make an acceptance speech that was all about himself, Burkett says about her co-winner.

Burkett also references the everyday sexism at play at the Oscars. She asks: "How many women were up on the stage before me? Zero women!"

"His Oscar is not bigger than my Oscar." -- Elinor Burkett
