Title: 88th Academy Awards (2016)
Post by: Mac on February 28, 2016, 06:58:48 pm
I can't believe I'm sitting here watching this. Well kinda... I am typing on the iPad... And doing other things. The thank you's and speeches are still mind numbing. Don't care. Don't think anybody cares.

I expected Chris Rock to address the diversity issue, but damn if they are not just driving it to ad nauseum.

I've seen less than a handful of these nominated films. No surprise. The Oscars do not follow popularity.

The commercials are at Super Bowl level... But weird.

WTF with the Girl Scouts Chris?

Yeah, I'm watching it in spite of saying I wasn't going to. I had to see how Chris was going to address the boycott. He did and then some. It's actually gotten a bit out of hand to the point where they are basically mocking the lack of diversity within the Academy. I was really shocked to see Angela Bassett saluting Jack Black for Black History Month. Seriously, WTF is this? She will get roasted tomorrow for sure, along with Chris. I'm sure there is more to come tonight.
