Yeah Barry may be a little insecure about his height and is knowingly giving his shoed height. At any rate, Moonlight was a fantastic film, one of the most deserving Oscar winners in recent memory.

Idk, he doesn't look this short to me. He looked slightly taller than Michael Mann at the DGA.

Another short guy claiming a shoe height.No offence...but i can see him measuring near his claim with some solid footwear.

I buy it. He doesn't exactly come off as average.

I also see in that tweet he also gives Tarell Alvin McCraney's height as 6'4". Seems more plausible than his claim of his own height! There are lots of photos of Barry with Mahershala Ali who seems like a genuine 6'1.5" and the difference is clearly a fair bit lesser than in this photo of Barry with Tarell.
Editor Rob: I see the other writer has been called 6ft 3 too, though he looks very tall with Barry.

Rob, how tall do you think the guy next to him is?


I'm getting a near 6ft4 vibe but I could be off
Editor Rob: yeah somewhere in 6ft 3.5-4 range

5ft 7in IMO
Rob, what do you think is McCraney's height?
Sam said on 11/May/17
I was thinking McCraney could've passed for 6'4" range at the Academy Awards. Rob what height do you see for McCraney?

As for Jenkins, he could pass as a strong 6 inches under Mahershala Ali. But it's possible he's 5'7" for a fair deal of the day.

5'7" is a normal height as well, but honestly he doesn't even look close to 5'7

He's right. 5ft8 is a pretty normal height. The problem however, is that he's not 5ft8 himself.
