I kinda love the Oscars. It’s popular to write it off as a bunch of rich people given each other gold statues but it’s also a celebration of film and it’s a great night to highlight many of the people who most of us don’t think about when it comes to filmmaking: screenwriters, editors, cinematographers, sound designers, and so on.
The 89th Annual Academy Awards were last night. I had some thought about the performances, the host, and the big debacle at the end.
The 89th Annual Academy Awards took place last night. It was an … interesting show. While Simon and I live-blogged the whole thing I have a few follow-up thoughts on the spectacle.
Last night Simon and I upheld our annual tradition and live blogged the Oscars for the 6th year in a row. It was a weird Oscars broadcast that culminated in the wrong film being announced as best picture!
The Academy Awards are upon us once again. It’s easy to be cynical about the Oscars, whether it’s because your favourite films never win or because of the endless campaigning, or because it’s, or because of the whole “rich people giving each other statues” thing, but I still kinda like them.
This year the nominees are mostly good, so here they all are along with some thoughts, opinions, and a prediction or two.
