That was interesting. I'm glad to see someone talking in more detail about the 1937 film, which is usually all but ignored. It's also interesting to read about how male-identified the new version is because I've seen so much focus in recent times on Bradley Cooper, how unfair everyone has been to him, how he deserves to win for Best Actor because he was the true "transformation" of the category, and so on. It feels like this has become more and more of an open vanity project for him, with Gaga left in the dust.

That was a very good read - I'm glad the person didn't seem to be an [!@#$%^&*], as many Academy voters are in these writeups. 

 

I've heard enough praise for Richard E Grant the last week that I wonder if he's going to end up winning.

I wonder. I haven’t seen Can You Ever Forgive Me? But you’d think the BAFTA voters would have awarded him if he had a chance. Who knows, though? Withnail and I is one of my favorite films, and I’d love to see him acknowledged for his fascinating, offbeat career. And Mahershala has his Oscar.

I probably put too much stock into these types of reports, or positive writeups. They may just be writing a lot about Grant and his great journey and his love of the Oscar season, and so on, because they have nothing else positive to talk about (the Gaga story fizzled out months ago). 

 

We'll probably have the most predicted winners win in the end, although I have a feeling they won't give Regina King hers, which would be a shame.

Another Honest Oscar Ballot!  This one's a great read, and not as bitter as the THR one.

 

There's a rumor/conspiracy theory floating around re: Whoopi Goldberg. Apparently, she's been absent from The View since around the time they announced her as a presenter for the show (they claim she's sick). Could it be...could she be a surprise host?! 

 

Personally, I thought she was a fantastic host. Her most recent gig at the 2002 Oscars, when she came down from the rafters as Satine from Moulin Rouge.

I thought she was a pretty good host too. I wouldn't mind seeing her again.

Four Oscars for BoRhap?!

 

 

Spoiler: the answer is no.

 

They suggest not including clips, which is dumb. How do you celebrate film and the great work nominees do without clips?
