Not claiming to be smarter! I think I just have a professional remove from the process. Awards season is exahusting enough w/o cheering for movies I love & then getting my heart broken.

For sure! But having covered them for over a decade (13 years I think?) I have detached my feelings of moral indignation from the process & I enjoy it much more. My favorite movies of the year are rarely nominated & almost never win.

If you stop expecting justice from awards season you will enjoy it (& life) more. YWNRH is not the kind of movie the Academy tends to recognize: too dark, too difficult. Love it all the more for that!

What was the news value of covering a New York real estate developer and reality television personality saying the first African American President was born in Africa? Has anyone credibly answered that question? And here we are....

Sarah Sanders has said it's real, if that means anything (granted that her word seldom if ever does.)

I chat with 'Roma's' Yalitza Aparicio about her historic Oscar nod, the first indigenous woman to be nominated for leading actress: 'He reflected us, indigenous people'

I hope you were referring this to me for a saint suggestion and not saying that_I_was saintly! (Francis of Assisi or Therese de Lisieux, & hell no I am not)

True, that has to divide the vote somewhat. It seems like having those categories overlap should be against the rules bc it disadvantages foreign films by definition.

If I had to bet I'd still put my $ there too, but Kois makes a solid dark-horse argument.

You have not only persuaded me that BlacKKKlansman could win, but now I kind of want it to! True that Spike's speech would kill.

Rami Malek’s first Oscar nomination had him euphoric Tuesday morning, even moreso given the “extraordinarily challenging” behind-the-scenes tumult of making Bohemian Rhapsody. Malek on Bryan Singer allegations and more in :

I could tile my backsplash in screeners of it! I bet if you ask around you can find one to borrow & save yourself a screening.

Amazing shot! Astronomical events like this often tend to be disappointingly hard to see (especially when viewed from a city) but this one lived up to its ultra-cool name.
