Hey, it`s the Timovieman it`s going to win anyway oscar predictions time of the year again:

Actually, it’s the TimovieMan couldn’t be bothered year for the Oscars. First time in 20+ years.

And then the Mother of all Flubs happened… Tongue

1st year in a long time I don’t watch it live and and the most entertaining stuff happens Frown what a mess that ending!

Exactly!

Although I do wonder why Warren Beatty didn’t pull the plug himself before the announcement because he noticed something was off.

Mad props to Jordan Horowitz for immediately setting the flub right and gracefully handing the Oscar he’d just been given to the rightful winners.
He got the short end of the stick in that flub and was still more cool-headed than any of the actual crew and presenters. Not to mention graceful in defeat.

I am curious what Timovieman would have picked for best movie but I guess he was busy.

Probably La La Land, but I didn’t do any research, didn’t follow any of it, and didn’t fill in any ballots, so frankly, I don’t know what I legitimately would’ve picked.

Kojima influence continues!

I have not seen a single movie of the nominees but Del Toro deserves it for Pan

Edit: Wait, Kobe Bryant won an Oscar?!? What

Edit2: Blade Runner for Cinematography! Deakins!

actually now i have seen the nomination and the winners at every category i must say that this year was true average i don’t say lame and take away the hard working behind every work done to make those movies, but i am speaking for the whole punch of nominated personals, they all had better work than these, and better films than those, the only thing that was exciting at the Oscars; Gary Oldman finally being appreciated.

Absolutely right Advie - 2017 was a very poor year for movies!
