After Dark: Who Is Watching the Oscars Tonight?

After Dark is a place for the BFTB community to come together and talk about anything and everything.

Is anyone here watching the 89th Academy Awards ceremony tonight? I will not be, but I understand that it is a rather big deal for most people. The nominees for best picture tonight are:

  • Arrival
  • Fences
  • Hacksaw Ridge
  • Hell or High Water
  • La La Land
  • Lion
  • Manchester by the Sea
  • Moonlight

Out of those nine, I have only seen Hell or High Water (which was actually pretty great; Jeff Bridges is always excellent) and honestly prior to the last two weeks, I had only heard of two others. How many of those movies have you seen? Do you have a prediction for what will win? Do you care what wins?

As always, this is an overnight open thread intended for all non-football discussion. So, feel free to comment on the topic or just talk about whatever the hell you want. I am not your mother. I really do not care.
