    Exactly, a trend they see no reason to break until it stops working and sadly so few wish to push the issue or stand against it. I get why Ali was involved and it worked out well for him, as it did for Morgan, but it's a step back every time for films like Spike's and other truth tellers. It's tiring really.

    What gets me is that Spike's film was just sitting there for all the right reasons, and they still refused to embrace it. Spike's film was filled with actual, deep sintiments about racial tension and issues in this country that tie in to current day directly, but of course the Academy can only bring themselves to honor a saccharine film full of a white man's narrative about a black man's struggle, much of it lies, and make it nice and pretty and comfortable for the (white) viewer far more so than Spike ever would or has or will. It's Driving Miss Daisy 2.0, it's what they continue to do time and time again and it sickens me.

    Thank God for that. I was just thinking they might get someone relevant to the category or maybe a nominee from last year. But a star she is and always will be. Viggo has an oscar now so...that's something I guess.

    So a movie based on lies and white knight fiction won...you had one job, Oscars, sheesh. Apparently Oscars 2019 told the Oscars of 1990 to hold their beer after that Driving Miss Daisy win. At least it's over for another year. Hey, Academy, make sure you book this year's host again.

    Julia Roberts because reasons? Okay. She is looking good though. Wait...check that envelope!

    If Black Panther somehow won for best picture...that's an image I need in my head. But in actual reality I am guessing it's between Bohemian R or Roma.

    Wow, what a shock...at least it was a nice movie. Maybe Spike can go hang out with Glenn and Barbara later.

    Well, so huge upset for BLA, could that mean a few more instore? Oh if they give BD to Spike, I could half forgive the Glenn snub.

    Sadly I wonder if it'll be while she's still living at this point...and I am only partly joking. I just feel this was an opportunity to right so many wrongs. Blah.

    Glen for the win, if there's any good left in the world. And no tie.

    It's so maddening. And disrespectful in my eyes, yes they may not be the biggest of names but the family, if present, should be allowed front and center seats. Some of those around him are just seat fillers too. Gah! Loved that Nike commercial. Gave me straight up chills.

    William, gah, he slays me. And Viggo, flaws and all. But Rami is totally taking this or there's a riot.

    And of course NOW it appears. At least they left out live singing, I like the tone of this better. But nothing ever touches the TCM memoriam, they always blow me away.

    So wait...minutes from 10:30 and we still haven’t gotten to the Memoriam portion of these events? It defies logic how they run this thing. Finally, she got her award, now they can all shut the hell up about one of the most annoying songs I have ever heard in my life.

    See, the Oscars, that didn’t hurt did it? Giving such a loud and proud civil rights activist his rightful due and acknowledging his genius? Now babysteps to maybe, finally, giving him something for, you know, actually being a fucking amazing director in a very small group of equals.

    Spike looks like a lost train conductor masquerading as a mailman, I love it.

    I feel I was never about it. I just don’t get the hype. The film had such a Lifetime quality to it, imo. Nothing really mind blowing or all that great frankly. And it’s been done so much better, with far superior singers and actors. And it ended as underwhelming as it began. At least it’s over. May it never be spoken of again.

    I am so not impressed by these two as vocal artists or their acting so...no. Barbara did it a million times better.

    Does anyone else remember the Oscar year when they had all the movies up for Best Picture represented in the form of select styles of dance? Remember when that seemed extreme...remember... *Mufasa voice*
