Do you think...now hear me out...do you think there's a chance that Parasite will win Best Picture??  Or do you think this will be another time where they split Director/Picture?  *fingers crossed*

Ok it didn't take Bong Joon-Ho very long to get real "Hollywood" with the Oscar acceptance speeches. His shout-out to Martin Scorsese was very classy but also very Hollywood.

Yeah, when they gave him the standing ovation, I was like, "Nice moment, but that doesn't change the fact that THE IRISHMAN is cruising for a shutout".

I'm watching this commercial for a show about Aretha Franklin and Cynthia Erivo is playing her.  I thought Aretha wanted Jennifer Hudson to play her.

And why is a British woman playing two iconic American women, in particular Harriet Tubman?  I can't believe they couldn't find black American actresses for those roles.

Especially a British woman who feels a 'certain way' about African-Americans, even though African-Americans are have given her a great career.

Yes, I think there is a good chance.

Don’t know yet but everyone was expecting the split to be Mendes for directing and Parasite for picture so who knows what’s going to happen. 

Mendes is no doubt happy he already has one.

I hope so! I was resigned to Sam Mendes winning Director and just hoping for the best for BP because he won all precursors, but this is something else!!!

Fuck this noise.  In Memoriam is just fine with an instrumental.  Billie has her fans and that’s great, but I am not in that number and definitely not for this song.

I wish they wouldn't applaud

Honestly.  There's no need to turn it into a popularity contest, which is what essentially happens when some people get loads of applause while there's silence for others.  Just applaud for everyone at the end.

Seems like they're rushing through the In Memoriam this year.

And I could do without Billie Eilish singing "Yesterday".  Actually, it wouldn't hurt my feelings if they just had a nice instrumental piece instead of any performer.
