ACADEMY AWARD OPEN THREAD….My Oscar predictions:

  • The show will run three and a half hours because that’s how long it’s designed to run and that’s how long it’s run every year for the past several decades.

  • Nonetheless, critics will join the great Oscar Conspiracy just like they do every year, pretending to believe that the show ran way over its scheduled length yet again and demanding that Something Must Be Done.

Yes, I whine about this every year. I’m nothing if not predictable.

And of course, some will say that this isn’t much of a prediction since I’m writing this post after the show is over. I consider that a mere technicality.
