    the one time I turn off the oscars early... :lol:

    I know. I turned it off after they announced La La Land. Missed the best part.

    The faux feud jokes though were great with Kimmel and Damon.

    Still not as embarrassing as Ishtar.

    Congrats to Emma Stone. She's my 2nd biggest actress crush.
    RIP America (1776-2016)

    I really didn't like Moonlight at all. How the hell did that movie win best picture.

    I liked it but definitely didn't see it winning the Oscar.
    I'm through with screaming

    Politics plain and simple. Don't get me wrong. Good movie and I'm anti homophobic and anti racist but I'm just saying. It's a big middle finger to Orange Bin Laden.

    Did not think The Shape of Water was Best Picture quality at all.
    And so you see, I have come to doubt
    All that I once held as true
    I stand alone without beliefs
    The only truth I know is you.

    Anyone else find it odd that one of the 'Best Movie' movies is about a 17 year old who has a sexual awakening with a 20-something?  (Especially in this year where the predatory reality of Hollywood was highlighted, and shamed?)

    The love he receives is the love that is saved

    No. It wasn’t a predatory relationship in the film at all. The 17-year-old in the film is who pushed for the relationship and ultimately had his heart broken as he had to deal with a loss that both participants knew was inevitable. Also, the parents knew about and encouraged the relationship. 

    In a hypothetical court of law, any case would be dismissed. It was consensual and real, and there were no questionable power dynamics at play.

    With few exceptions, most age of consent laws are at 16 anyway.

    Is this call me by your name? I saw th first half and couldn’t make it any further 

    i thought shape of water was fine and I liked it more than I expected, Michael Shannon was awesome  but I liked a few of the others more. I really liked phantom thread and I thought lady bird was better too. Three billboards could have been better if not for the ending

    No, I disagree. Haven’t seen the movie but from what I’ve read it’s about two of-age individuals without any power differential in a consensual relationship. Most places, 17 is even of age to marry (not that I think that’s a good idea, but it’s the truth).

    I didn't consider 17 of age.  If it is, my comment is taken back.
    If it is illegal, it does not matter if it is something the younger party pursues. 
    I have yet to see it and it was just the description that caused my wife and I both to question how they could not write a better description of it. 
    I will check it out when it comes out.

    The “of age” thing is interesting, of course. I’ve read that, in Italy in the time in which the movie (and originally the book) was set, the age of consent was 14. I think we would all feel pretty uncomfortable with the scenario of a 14 year old with a 20 something I’m not wild about 17 and early 20s, but don’t see it as necessarily an abuse or violation.

    Yeah, I agree that this (14 and 20+ scenario) is fucking gross as well.
    I know that wasnt the movie's premise.
     
    2 kids both in high school, get it.  A kid at the end of high school and another at the start of college...get it.  Grad Student and High Schooler?  In my opinion I would not be down for this as a parent.
    If it is legal, what I think has little impact and I don't want to force my opinions on others.

    The eyeglass fashion on the Red Carpet was horrible.  Old lady frames can look good if they aren't overdone, but the optical community is cringing at the over-the-top ridiculous frames the stars were marring their faces with.

    Thanks, Joan.

    It's too bad, but not at all surprising, that you're still speaking from the grave.
