    They give an Oscar to fish?

    You're thinking of groupers, not gropers, surely?

    I started to make a list but there are too many. And that's just the ones who have been outed.
    How did I become a senior member? I only recently figured out where the restrooms are.

    Laurence Fishburne is one of my favourite Hollywood actors, but he's not in the final nominees for the award. He was on the long list with Last Flag Flying, but eventually dropped out. On the shortlist, I do not have any particular favourite.

    I see Blade Runner 2049 is up for about five. That was the only film to tempt me into a popcorn pit last year.

    Dunkirk featured remarkable cinematography. The flying scenes were with authentic warbirds equipped with cameras; no CG anywhere. And they used some of the remaining Little Ships from the actual Dunkirk rescue. It won't win Best Picture, but it needs to get something for all the trouble they took recreating the events.

    It's a shame it wasn't nominated for more it was one of the finest films of the year. If Deakins doesn't win for cinematography I'll probably never watch again, same goes for Jonny Greenwood for Score and Gary Oldman for Actor.
