Rich, egotistical actors handing each other awards and pontificating as though they know better than us (when they just have more access to microphones). Yeah, I need to spend several hours of my life watching THAT.
I find it somewhat interesting that so many here equate “academy awards” with “academy awards ceremonies”. (not wrong, just interesting)
On a scale of 1 to 100, I have zero interest in watching the ceremonies, but I would say it is 40 or so for the actual nominations (I certainly took the time to review them). For example, I have seen about half the best picture nominees and seeing the nominations might pique my interest for a few others. I had never even heard of “Parasite”, but now might be enticed to watching it.
@DrWorm I saw Parasite. I recommend it. The Regal theater by me brings back best picture nominees this time of year. Hopefully I can see some of the ones I missed. It’s kind of cool to look at the nominees and winners if you’ve seen the movies.
