I have $20 on Dame Judy Dench. Yes the odds are long, but if it happens, Hello Retirement!

Is Judy the puncher or the punchee? I’ve heard she she’s a brawler.

The bet is who was going to be suckered punched.
The odds for her being the assaulter are much lower. You don't piss off Dame Judy.

They're doing that thing again where a bunch of former Acting winners announce the Acting winner in that same category together.
Like Ali, Quan and Rockwell giving Best Supporting Actor to RDJ.

There might be a better way, but my approach is to create a new thread with the poll in place, and then I merge it with the original, poll-less thread.

You know, I was so sure about Murphy winning BA, but I reallly think and would love if Giamatti got it.

I thought about trying that but didn't want to muck it up.

Three Japanese films nominated. I'm hoping at least one wins.
THE BOY AND THE HERON (Best Animated Feature);
GODZILLA MINUS ONE (Best Visual Effects);
PERFECT DAYS (Best International Feature).

Our OTA antenna coaxial connection broke off the upstairs TV with the comfy furniture. Before we go downstairs to the other TV with the needs-to-be-replaced furniture, is there a way to stream to Oscars? We have Hulu with ads, but no cable TV provider. I think a crappy couch is in my future tonight...

I didn’t get to see ALL the nominees like I had hoped but this is one of the rare years where I really wouldn’t be upset no matter who wins. All the nominees I DID see were good enough to deserve the award.

Seriously. I mean Lily Gladstone is fine, but she's in the movie less than an hour and she's slowly dying most of the time. Emma Stone was truly amazing, beginning to end, and in every scene. How anyone could actually pick Lily over Emma, on the basis of their performances on screen, is beyond me. Of course other things go into the voting
