I’m really enjoying tonight’s academy awards. I love Jimmy Kimmel and glad that he was asked back to host. Although I told Dean, “Everyone else has been accused of sexual harassment so not sure who else could have hosted.”
I watched only a handful of the nominees: Get Out, Baby Driver, The Last Jedi, The Shape of Water, The Florida Project, and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. Of these, the only ones I enjoyed were the last two.
A few nights ago, we watched The Last Jedi and I was sorely disappointed. It was so bad that midway through, I hopped out of my seat to buy a glass of wine.
And last night, we purchased The Shape of Water for $14.99 because I wanted to watch it before the Oscars. Ehhh, didn’t think it warranted a best picture nod.
So clearly everyone has different tastes and that’s a good thing. Diversity! I’m looking forward to watching The Post, All the Money in the World, Lady Bird, Dunkirk and I, Tonya.
