Gabriel asked if I had a favorite to win. After seeing every nominated film, my bet was for Green Book. And, by golly, it took home the statue. I know of all the controversy between Blackkklansman and Green Book. (And allow me to opine that some of the trash-talk saying Peter Farrelly being white means he shouldn't have any right to tell the story is bogus.) The former was well done and was my prediction until I saw the latter. While film exists to elicit emotion, visceral reaction shouldn't determine the outcome. It should be a matter of observing all the aspects of a film: acting, directing, script, cinematography, editing...the whole shebang. Taking it all into consideration, well...
We had a terrific time, and yesterday didn't help me fully catch up on sleep. I'm still exhausted and the M.D. doesn't help. 😐 Even massive amounts of coffee isn't encouraging the eyes to say open, or chasing the yawns away.
So, if you'll forgive me...I think I'm going to go read my newspaper
and then go back to bed.
With any amount of luck, wood may not only make an appearance
but stick around for a bit.
