So, not hasten anyone in their moment but um, did this alternate format mean no time limit? Because these people so far have BEEN talking.

eta: Oh, I was wondering why Laura wasn't giving Supporting Actor per tradition, since she won Supporting Actress last year. 

I was wondering that too, but is there even an orchestra to play them off with?

Lakeith Stanfield's hair gave me just the laughs I needed after that speech.

Is it me or are the speeches extra long this year? Did the get rid of the "get off the stage" music? It's been 30 minutes and they only have there winners.

This may be an unpopular opinion and I know this has been a serious year but I miss the little joke skits.

Basically the director's daughter was killed by a driver texting on his phone during the shooting. It was difficult but he decided to complete the filming.

No surprise over Daniel's win.  Still think it's strange he's considered supporting, but good for him.  At least Lakeith looked happy for him and will in no way team up with Jesse Plemons and betray him down the road!

Can you repeat what he said? Got distracted by my sister talking.

His daughter was killed in a car accident because the guy was busy talking on his phone.

Yay, Daniel! Fred Hampton, Sr. would be proud, the cringe sex joke aside.

Waaaay too chit chatty presentation format. 

So agree!  It’s nice to hear tidbits about people up for an award, but also it’s TOO MUCH.

Daniel’s family members being confused and embarrassed half a world away is 2021 reality.

It's kind of a shame because of the year it's been these Oscar's will have an asterisk next to them because I really did love a lot of the films and performances.

Wait, did Daniel just say he's going to celebrate that his parents had sex?

Yes and his family looked like that sapped all the joy out of his winning an Oscar. So cringe.

Ever since I saw Daniel on Black Mirror years ago I knew we would see more of him.  Hooray!

Well they are at Union Station, perhaps they're waiting for the arrival of the 5:50 from Fresno to blow it's horn as the wrap up cue...

It is too late to reintroduce the idea that the shortest acceptance speech wins a Kawasaki jet ski modeled by Helen Mirren?

I could do without Laura's rambling about the nominees.  Show clips so I can see if I'm interested to see the movies I haven't seen.

The acceptance speeches are one thing, but these ENDLESS spoken monologues about each nominee are too much. Just show 30 seconds of the movie, please.

Was that Rita Moreno singing on the WSS teaser?

Yes.  She's playing Doc.

That trailer did not make me want to see the movie.

LOL. I know. But it brings a bit of relief in between the seriousness (and boredom) even if they are groan-worthy.

I wonder if because it seems a rather intimate setting, the nominees feel less inhibited to ramble on?

Ma Rainy's Black Bottom might not have gotten in the Best Picture category, but it certainly seems to have some support in the other categories!

Or maybe they told them to go ahead and talk however long since we don't have a host or musical numbers??

Well the original film is amazing except for the lead balloons that are Natalie Wood and Richard Beymer.
