the good: finally got to the ‘in memoriam.’

the bad: who the hell picked the music?

i’m usually in tears, but that upbeat dance tempo took me right out of it.

That was very oddly timed; a lot of folks I didn't have time to read the name and what they did, while others seemed to linger longer.

I'll forgive it, though, for any excuse to hear "Space Oddity," even if it is an AirBnB ad.

Yaphet Kotto...😢   I agree that Halle Berry looks like death, and Angela Bassett's makeup is not doing her  any favors.

If they are presenting Best Picture now, that means Best Actor has to be last. You know they want to honour Chadwick in some way and you know his wife will give a speech that will destroy us all.

Hold up, we're doing Best Picture now?  Did I fall asleep during the main actor categories?!

If you did, I did too.

Weird to not do best picture last.

It went so fast that I barely had time to read the names.

Plus it felt like an eye-exam where you had to very quickly move from side to middle to other side and compute the name in a nano-second.

Wait.. They are doing Best Picture before actor and actress? 

Rita Moreno is a national treasure.

Maybe they’re still trying to figure out who Best Actress will go to.

Since when is Best Picture not the last award? Huh? Or did I miss them presenting Best Actor & Actress?

Are they really doing Best Picture before the lead Actor awards?

Maybe they gave those out with the technical awards that they always host in the basement.

Well, up until now, I was the only person not complaining about the ceremony, but now you can count me in.

Not that it's going to happen--let's be real here--but if anyone other than Chadwick Boseman wins Best Actor, this is going to blow up spectacularly in their faces.  (But let's be real--it's obvious they want the tribute to Boseman to end the show.)

And it's Nomadland.  And since Francis is a producer, hopefully we'll get one classic Francis speech!

I thought best picture was the big one? I appreciate Chadwick has passed but don't know what I agree with changing the show to honour him? Or maybe I do.. I don't know it's late and this show has been awful anyway.

My guess is because there's no suspense about it versus Best Actress which is a shit show and Best Actor is locked but I imagine they want to give Chadwick's widow the full time to speak.

I missed part of it, sadly.  But I also wondered about the uptempo song used — not right.

Congrats to Frances for nabbing Oscar #3 (for pic no less) congrats to all of Team Nomadland.

What's better then Francis wolf howling on stage?  The Coen brother (can't remember which one) nodding and being all "And that's why we are married, ladies and gents!"

Best Picture is not important this time around.  Actor and Actress are the more interesting categories.  You have Actor who is down to Chadwick Boseman or Anthony Hopkins and then you have Actress which is a toss up.

Ok I get that Chloe Zhao isn't Hollywood but her dress looks like a grocery store bag.

I always think that about whatever Frances wears.

Am I going to hell for chuckling that they're playing "Don't You Forget About Me" as Renee Zellweger appears?

Interesting that Renee is giving Actress and Joaquin giving Actor. It’s usually the other way. Of course we’ve already had Picture so why not.

And that’s three for Frances.

Fran, while I appreciate your call to watch movies in a theater, studios have other ideas now, including me getting to watch your movie on Star (non USA equivalent of Hulu) via Disney + in Canada. 

Dang, she manages to beat out Viola Davis? The Academy must love her wolf calls.
