The Oscars really got it mostly right this year. I personally would have preferred Paul Mescal or Colin Farrell for Best Actor, but among the frontrunners, I was fine with Brendan Fraser, who sucked in the abysmal The Whale, but seems a nice fellow.
Perhaps the only award I just can't abide is ignoring All the Beauty and the Bloodshed for Best Doc. That said, good show, and heart-warming winners.
One thing that jumped out at me, since I'm obsessed with dead celebrities, is how few made it into the In Memoriam this year.
There were so many gasp-inducing exclusions that I quickly realized, after Lenny Kravitz stopped playing, that the Academy must have decided not to have a full In Memoriam at all, and will likely direct all bitching to their site, where they do, in fact, honor everyone (except killer Robert Blake, and I think they left Sacheen Littlefeather off because of her ancestry kerfuffle).
