World Of Today

Don't have much to say about the Oscar telecast except that it was awful.  By the end I wasn't sure if it was an awards show or a political rally.

You can check out my guesses and I pretty much got them all with a few minor exceptions.  I considered Mark Rylance to be neck and neck with Sylvester Stallone for Best Supporting Actor.  Rylance took it, and let me congratulate the Academy for not being sentimental.  You got the O and the T Mark, go for the E and the G.

The big surprise of the night--almost the only one--was Spotlight as Best Picture.  Congratulations to all of you who stayed awake till the end to see that moment.  I knew Spotlight had a chance, but after all those wins for The Revenant it was a shock.

As expected, Mad Max won almost all the technical awards but nothing above the line.

The worst choice was Bear Story for best short animated film.  I don't deny it's a very accomplished piece of work, but World Of Tomorrow was amazing.
