    You know someone is going to raise the issue, so let's just get it out in the open.

    Two things struck me about last night's Oscar "debacle."
    You tell me if I'm just full of ship or if the points are valid.

    On the recommendation of a friend, I reluctantly saw "La La Land" and ended up loving the movie.
    The end result of the movie very closely resembled what happened last night on stage with Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway--- so much so, it seemed planned at least at some level.
    Too similar to the movie's ending to not have been somewhat planned.

    Second issue: with the ongoing saga of antagonism between Hollywood and Trump, with Hollywood jumping on the side of MSM and decrying Trump's mantra of "Fake News" at every turn, one would think that on their night to shine, with all eyes on them, they would have figured out a way to get their own facts straight.

    I knew they would mess up like Steve Harvey I just felt in my heart sometime that night that they would, lol. I saw five or six of the nine movies nominated for best picture. I think it was political that moonlight won period.

    Of course it's political. They snubbed blacks last year so they had to make amends this time round. It's also possible Moonlight was a better picture than La La Land.

    I haven't been to see La La Land yet but Moonlight is a good film played with small gestures and dialogues telling a story worth learning about. These two films are difficult to compare, they are totally different genres.

    You don't know half of it. It's even greater if you bear in mind that FreakyKBH used the word "stage" in the post divegeester was replying to, AND... and this is the great thing that few people here got, probably... FreakyKBH has gone on and on about how he thinks the world is "flat". divegeester combined these in a short, witty post. A great one, in fact.

    I have followed most of the jousting between Freaky and Sonhouse so that's why I knew it was a truly great one.

    With Obama winning a Nobel Peace Prize I was fully expecting him to win an Oscar as well.

    It makes just as much sense and it's a political feel good thing to do.

    And of course you no doubt are fully on board Trumpf's accusation Obama is behind the leaks.
