So the winners of Best Actor and Best Actress Oscars are both going to be TV leads in the next few weeks.

Good point. That's bullshit.

I'm not, but she was pretty obviously not a professional actress in Roma. And the Academy frequently gives "nominations as awards", it's not a criticism.

What do you guys think the BP will be now? I'm getting a BR vibe over Roma.

I guess we saw what it would have been like if she won.

Maybe they just thought the other woman was better.

Green Book. The only one of the BP nominees that I never saw in theaters.

A former colleague of mine is going to be absolutely livid that it won. She hated the movie and thought it was a too sanitized white washed version of this story.

Would have been hilarious if after the guy said, "Aloha," Emma Stone screamed out, "I'm sorry!"

No, he is not. He is known to Joe Dante fans, and that's it.

People do not know who he is. If you showed people his picture and told them he was an actor, they might say he was familiar. There are a few parts he would be recognized for (all from 35-40 years ago) but you would have to jog people's memories about Fame or show them a clip from Gremlins. He had a long career as a character player in film and TV, so good for him, but he never achieved any fame or notoriety as an actor.

That's exactly what it was - if I see another one of this type of movie get this much praise I'm going to end my own life.
