OK, one to go. Will it be 1917 or will Parasite pull an upset?

Please, Jane, not a long speech about how movies save the world.

I've seen the argument that Renee has more pull than Glenn Close.  How??  I mean, Glenn's picture is in the dictionary under the word "overdue."  Renee Zellweger just took a self-imposed break from acting, and she's already got an Oscar.  I don't get that argument.

I think it's more like Renee Zellwegger is more willing to do the grunt work of hustling for an Oscar. Glenn Close does theater work and is fairly low key.

"Films that made the greatest impact of the year."

The Avengers: "Are we jokes to you?" (No, I don't think Endgame was better than most of these films, but it is hard to deny the impact it had in 2019.)

Had I known Zellweger was going to speech-ify I would not have sprung for the Miralax...

(which by the way is working as intended, thank you very much)

So I wondered why the woman who won for Best Score thanked Bradley Cooper.  Now I know--he was a producer on Joker.

Jane Fonda is here and I'm sure she knows how to read a card properly (I kid, Warren!  I know it wasn't all your fault!)

To be fair, he didn't say it.  Faye snatched the card from him and read it.

It made a shit ton more money than all the nominated movies combined, that's for sure.

I think Renee Zellwinger lost her train of thought there...

That's assuming there was one to begin with...

He’s going to be drunk for the rest of the year. And make terrible Hollywood deals but regret comes later.

I can't wait for the backlash tomorrow, it's going to be glorious.

 

Eta I don't mean this as a dig to Parasite but to the inevitable 'only movies in English should win'

Now I have to see Parasite.  And Joker.  And Bombshell.  And Little Women.  And 1917.

Good for Parasite, though.  It's great when an underdog story happens in real life.

The Academy Museum, which Tom Hanks was just talking about, is in my neck of the woods -- and its opening has been delayed and delayed and delayed over the last couple of years.  December of this year, after the previous delays, is crazy.  It should be opening next month, after all this time!

I saw it under construction when I was visiting a friend in LA last year. I keep asking “So is it opening soon?” (she has some reason to know—I’m not just asking randomly 🤣) and I was shocked to hear the news that it’s not opening until December! That better be one amazing museum 🤣

I haven’t seen Parasite.  What is so amazing about it?

That’s what I want to know.  Like I said, I read up on it and don’t get it.
