I can't believe that we aren't even at supporting actress yet.

OTOH, we've already done director.

Damn, I guess I'll have to see "My Octopus Teacher" which I've actively avoided due to my great enjoyment of Tako Nigiri...

I don’t know what it says about me, but... after seeing this I swore I’d never eat octopus again, yet here I am, entering the final week of Greek Orthodox Lent, with octopus in my fridge.

Steven Yeun is here to remind everyone that getting killed off The Walking Dead can actually benefit your career quite a bit.  Good for him!

Between Minari and Invincible, he's having a hell of a year.

Tenet might not have saved the theaters like Christopher Nolan hoped it would, but it's at least got one Oscar, so maybe that will make him happy!

From the winner of visual effects, is the rule then that if winners are in different locations only the winner in Union Station can speak? Seems to be and makes the guy who win best screenplay look less of a dick.

Brad Pitt is aging like a fine wine. With that being said, these little blurbs about the nominees are still awful. I still want to see clips.

Brad's speeding through all of this like the pro he is.  One of the many reasons I like him!

Yay, Yuh-Jung!

Yes! Youn Yuh-jung! Thrilled for her. She is delightful and was great in Minari.

Were the nominees sent a questionnaire before the show to fill in all these random facts?

Had that one. Well-deserved, the end of Minari with her character so beaten down after being such a spitfire for most of the movie, was heartbreaking.

Yay, Yuh-Jung! She's been adorable all awards season long, before and after she hit on Brad Pitt, not that I blame her, re the latter. To quote Steve Winwood, "When you see a chance, take it."

“I’m luckier than you.”  That sometimes work.

But Glenn Close is becoming the Susan Lucci of the Oscars and that makes me sad.

Me too. It is a crime that Glenn Close has never won.

Shrug to that supporting actress win.  Will probably never see it because that’s not my type of movie.

Agreed, but this wasn't the movie she should've won for (if she'd won).

Glenn was wonderful in Hillbilly Elegy. And for those who hated the wig and glasses, she looked exactly like the real person.

Does Glenn Close kick puppies? Because she's been amazing for so long and never gotten an Oscar. I don;t get it.

Ha! For those who don't know, he was an Executive Producer on Minari which would explain the Tulsa line

I just said the same thing to my family. It really doesn’t work for her.

She looks like she was in quarentine and chopped it off herself.

Well she did make a coat out of them! 😃 She HAS been amazing, in film after film. I didn't know until reading here that she has never won. I don't get it either.

Some things never change, and the Academy giving Best Production Design to a film about "old-time" Hollywood is one of them!
