Against the odds

Yes, this is the obligatory Oscars post. I have nothing to say about the awards themselves. I didn’t see any of the movies up for best picture. I think I saw two of the performances for people nominated for acting categories. Given my lack of knowledge in the award area, I’m [...]

Laughable
