I’ve heard the argument: why should the Oscars have to keep to three hours—nobody cares if the Super Bowl runs over four hours! Has anyone ever suggested STARTING the Oscars like the Super Bowl, like 6:30 Eastern?

Glad you wrote about this! I think the pitfall sometimes when people review documentaries is to basically review the topic. The topic here is obviously worthwhile, once it gets around to it. But it also matters how well the show tells the story

This should be the headline of the story. The news isn't the thing you already knew was going to happen. It's the admission you didn't expect the subject was going to make, in front of a live camera.

In THE ART OF THE DEAL, Trump bragged that he once ordered construction crews to just dig holes all over a site and move dirt back and forth so that the visiting board of directors would think they'd done a lot of work. (It's on pages 214-215)

How would you describe Trump's speech pattern this morning if your priority was accurately describing reality as you've observed it rather then avoiding being perceived as "the opposition"?

Basically, Trump's opening statement boils down to "People need to say more good things about things I've done!," which, for him, is the real permanent national emergency.

So apparently this is one of those national emergencies so URGENT that you open your announcement about it with an update on your trade negotiations.

(That's not even counting the dude who wrote off Black Panther because he said superhero movies were the stuff that oozes out of a dumpster--but had not bothered to, you know, *see the movie.*)

In case you're ever wondering why I have a hard time taking awards seriously as a measure of artistic merit:
