Nope. I didn’t watch the Oscars again. Long time listeners know that I don’t consider the Academy Awards to be much more than a bunch of floofy schmaltz. That’s not to say that awards aren’t deserved, but it’s all about peers giving awards to peers for movies that are meant for the public to enjoy. Movie awards where the public can decide who wins and who loses would be more valuable. Yes, there are problems with fanboys and haters, I get that. But the Academy Awards are loaded with those kinds of people, too, like Academy members who don’t vote for someone because of a nominee’s spouse who has nothing to do with the movie industry! (Yeah, that one will always piss me off…)

Anyway, don’t forget that if you listen to this show on the web, you should get it from widescreen.org, not here. widescreen.org is the main site for this. I’m lazy, so it might take me weeks to get podcasts updated here.
