RE: Smapdi's Wonderful Fantastic Oscar Thread
1 for 1 - Regina King - she won some of the precursor awards so I feel that was a given. Two actresses from The Favourite nominated in the same category will always split up the votes too. In any case, Rachel Weisz goes home with Daniel Craig every night so who's the real winner here.

Dang, 1 for 2. Appropriately cutting off the Documentary Feature winner speech. I didn't see any of those films tho.

2 for 3. Making Christian Bale look like Dick Chaney is a clear winning move. And the competition was not that great.

Roma was actually the first Oscar nominated movie I saw this season; pretty good overall. Then I watched Bohemian Rhapsody. oooh, Khaleesi!

Sound editing not a surprise. I've seen Queen and Adam Lambert twice by the way. Wait - three times. Excellent show but the first time was of course the best.

I’m considering going to see the remnants of Queen this summer. It’s a seven plus hour drive (one way) to the closest venue. Still worth it?

Hm, is there a fun stop-over halfway through?
Yes, I would say worth it. Drive there, see the show, get a room and drive back the next day. I regret all the acts I thought about seeing and didn't for one reason or another, and now they are gone.

I’ve seen Pearl Jam 3 times and been able to photograph Eddie Veddar and Dave Matthews on stage. I’m kinda satisfied in the concert front.
A massage doesn't always have to lead to sex, but if it doesn't then you're doing it wrong.

That is definitely cool, and photos to boot, can't beat that.

How did I guess Film Editing correctly? OK I'll take it

Well I didn't get Best Supporting Actor, but there were a lot of great guys in that category. Also I have not seen Vice or Green Book yet. The clip of Sam Rockwell as GWB? Wow. That Makeup winner was on point.

So far I’ve only seen 2 of the movies on your list. Solo and Black Panther. Never thought those two would make the awards list.

Remember the days when you could stream all these movies for free without infecting your computer with a virus, even all the laminated shorts.

As an aside, I don't think I've seen any camera shots of Meryl Streep. Is she even here tonight, she asked no one

Heh  Thanks! I love MeTV, a whole fountain of retro-entertainment! Next up: Touched By an Angel (never watch that series). Have you seen the Decades channel? We had it for like a moment and now I think they took it off our provider. 

I'm 6 for 15. Not great track record. I am glad I didn't offer up a prize. 

I just rented Star is Born this weekend. Gaga and the Hangover are singing their song now.
