Isn't that a given after every Oscars?

I get what you're saying but I think the Oscars recently, and definitely in the last two years, have actually sort of gone in a direction that a lot of younger credits approve of/agree with. This is the first big Oscar Bait-y sort of win in a while.

The host-less Oscars were well presented (sort of) especially the Lady GaGa/Bradley Cooper duet, as well as the opening sequence with Queen/Adam Lambert.

Controversy has never been missing at the Academy Awards and this one will sure bring it on.

Can't understand why Glenn Close didn't nab the Best Actress category.  She was practically a shoo-in for the Award.

Oh well, some things will never make sense.

No.  But I know of someone who did and they found both actresses deserving of it.

The expectarions of many in the industry were that Close would win it. 

Winning a Golden Globe (Hollywood Foreign Press) hasn't always indicated that a particular category winner will be equally presented come Oscar time.

So...you do understand why someone would vote for Colman?

I forgot to add that what I meant by the part about making no sense didn't really refer to Close, but in reference to the tweet.

Speaking of understanding, I have watched the Academy Awards for quite some time in case you're wondering.

I know some of the vitriol is getting out of hand, but this movie just kind of looks not good?

Green Book is definitely an Oscar-bait type of win this year but I don't think this was a very good crop of movies.  I liked Roma a lot more and think it would have been a better win but I also felt that blackkklansman was pretty heavy handed itself as a movie.

For what it's worth the early reviews/reactions from critics have generally been pretty good.

I haven't watched Roma but it's received mixed reactions from all the people I asked who watched it. Either loved or hated.
