The biggest day for movie lovers is finally here as the 93rd Oscars telecast finally gets underway and the Academy Awards winners are known.
If you ask me, there was no reason to delay the eligibility deadline by two months. However, it is what it is. As far as the ceremony itself, I still believe that they should have gone with the Hollywood Bowl. If the Los Angeles Dodgers didn’t have a home series this weekend (and they are on ESPN Sunday Night Baseball, that would have been another suitable option! You can find my predictions for the 93rd Oscars here.
To start things off, I’m not loving this whole shoot the Oscars like it’s a movie. It’s just not working for me.
I could listen to Harrison Ford read notes all day! Tonight, he read some of the notes from Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner.
Tyler Perry delivered a great acceptance speech with a message of “Refuse Hate.”
