Very nice.

I hope Trial of the Chicago 7 wins Best Picture.  Just a great film from top to bottom. Good writing, good direction, and all of the actors knocked it out of the park.  Not to mention politically relevant in these troubled times of ours.

The Best Picture category has no sole.
Quite literally. The hugely popular Pixar film....

All the acting winners could will be from ethnic minority groups.

That's been the plan for a while, now.

Love the insinuation that Soul was somehow robbed of a best picture nomination. That movie was a tonal mess that had potential until it started cannibalizing Inside Out, ripping off Hertzfeldt and veering into a talking cat schtick.

Not gonna happen. Half the nominees have some themes that resonate with today's culture, but the game is tilted towards Frances McDormand's "Poor People Are Almost Like Real People Sometimes."

Personally, among the nominees, I think "Judas and The Black Messiah" or "Promising Young Woman" are far more deserving.

Well yeah, a category doesn't even have feet, much less a sole of one.

That's Frances McDormand!? I thought that was Willem Dafoe!

Star Wars lost to Annie Hall. Raiders Lost to Chariots of Fire. Pulp Fiction lost to Forrest Gump. I stopped paying attention after that but I'm sure there are equally heinous examples.

Lucky you. You missed Saving Private Ryan losing to Shakespeare in Love.

They've always been that way. Citizen Kane lost out to How Green Was My Valley, something that's only known for somehow beating out Kane.

/I don't usually watch them, but I would have been 100% done with them had Boyhood best out Birdman.

I sometimes watch the Oscars, but don't plan around it. I was more into them when I was younger. I actually thought it already was on this year. Normally it's on late Feb/early Mar.

I was surprised to see someone I had met in the In Memorium montage one year. He was a film professor teaching possibly the strangest course I ever took. It was called Sex, Death, and Cinema.

It sort of happened 2 years ago. While Olivia Coleman identifies as white she has a significant Indian heritage.

Birdman was pretentious garbage. If anything, Whiplash deserved Best Picture that year.

As for Mug's gripe about Annie Hall, Saturday Night Fever should have beaten out that and Star Wars, and that one didn't even get nominated.

Are you serious? A farking disco musical? Better than a film that revolutionized fikmmaking?

Boyhood was a farking waste of celluloid and would have earned a C- as a film school project
