    With the Best Picture category able to go up to ten films and Best Director still set at five, this is going to happen more and more often.

    I saw an interview where Rami said he trained with a vocalist who had studied how the vocalizations Freddie did were physically produced, so that he would look more like Freddie when he sang. So that might be the source of the "sang like Freddie" thing.

    It was an homage to Prince. The necklace he was wearing was the Prince symbol. That is why I gave it a pass. 🙂

    I can see that too. On another note, I saw on another message board someone describing GREEN BOOK as "the Donald Trump of Oscar winning movies". I LOL'd.

    Spoilers and Speculation: Clink Boom and Cheese Fondue

    Maybe TPTB didn't want to point out how many twins are running around Port Charles these days.

    And BLACK PANTHER, which I was rooting for to win Best Picture, came away with three when I thought it would get none, and SPIDERMAN: INTO THE SPIDER VERSE won for Best Animated Film. So superhero films may have finally broken through. If only the evening hadn't ended on such a sour note.

    I am reposting this here at the end of the thread because it looks like I caused anger through a poor choice of words and I want to make sure that the people I offended see my apology... I had posted this response to someone expressing disappointment that Richard E. Grant did not win Best Supporting Actor: Me too. 😞 Looks like the increased diversity in the Academy is making itself felt. 🙂 EDITED TO ADD: Since it seems as though I miscommunicated what I wanted to say and people took offense, let me clarify: I was rooting for Richard E. Grant to win (hence the sad face emoji), but I am not at all upset that Mr. Ali got the trophy (well, except for the fact that it turned out to be a precursor to GREEN BOOK winning Best Film). What I meant by the "diversity" comment is that in an earlier era Grant would have been a lock for the win, but the increased push for diversity has now brought talented people of color to the fore where before they were ignored. (Hence the smiley face emoji). I in no way meant to insinuate that the diversity push was a bad thing or that Mr. Ali did not deserve his win, and I sincerely apologize for my words giving the impression that I did.

    Weighted voting tends to reward everybody's second favorite movie.

    The conventional "Oscar bait" movie 25 years ago, maybe. I'm reeling in shock here. I'd give my eye teeth to see the actual vote counts on this one.

    That dress Julia Roberts is wearing is a bad color for that stage and lighting.

    I was thinking about the time when Christian Bale couldn't find his wife in the audience.

    Has BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY lost in a category it's been nominated in yet?

    He may not have been a member of the Academy.
