Second year in a row I won't be watching at all. Previously I switched back and forth but don't really care about any of the movies.

That will probably be the results except Original Screenplay will probably be The Favourite instead.

I keep saying that even though Roma is the clear BP favorite, I could see something more commercially appealing and not backed by Netflix winning instead. I just don't know which movie it will be. Maybe Green Book, maybe Bohemian Rhapsody. With preferential ballots, you just don't know what will happen if enough people don't want a Streaming service to win the biggest award in cinema.

Screenplay is definitely not a "Big 5" award, and if you include Director as "Big" then there are 6 awards that are Big.

That opening performance had more energy in four minutes than all of Maroon 5ís performance at the Super Bowl.

It is. Iím referring to the big 5 that can be considered a sweep for a film. Itís Best Film, Director, actor, actress, and screenplay (either original or adapted). The last film to do this was Silence of the Lambs.

See that was funny. I would have been fine with them hosting again with Maya. They’re breezy and seems adlibbed some...

The fact it was so short helped.

Free Solo was the favorite.

WTF was that acceptance speech? Like an afterthought to mention, y'know, the guy who the film was about.

This is why the lesser known awards should not be a part of the main broadcast.

Ow, those best makeup winners were so painfully awkward I’d argue to move the category to commercials next year. ,

I can't even watch the Oscars anymore. It's always an overlong exercise in awkwardness and boredom.

You’d think one of the most prestigious awards to win in Hollywood would have a better show. Why can’t they just follow other awards shows blueprints?
