Hollywood seized the microphone at Sunday's Oscars and wasn't shy about its passions, sprinkling political moments throughout a show that included anti-gun and pro-immigration references, as well as mocking the president's Twitter habits.Rapper Common singled out the National Rifle Association, immigrants, women's rights and the movement to prevent gun violence during a performance of his Oscar-nominated song.His rap led into Andra Day's singing of "Stand Up for Something," co-written with Diane Warren for the movie "Marshall". Common, an Oscar winner in 2015, also took aim at President Donald Trump.The song later lost in the original song category to "Remember Me" from "Coco".During his show-opening monologue, host Jimmy Kimmel aimed some barbs toward the nation's capital.Kimmel kept up the political jabs before introducing the presenters for documentary feature.
