Out of the Blue

Tonight is the Oscars, where the Hollywood elite find out if all the training they did for the competition will pay off. I have seen exactly one nominee, which seems about par for the course for me, since I see most movies at home. So if I was the typical voter, Get Out would win in every category it's nominated in, and the other categories would go un-awarded. I guess that's why I'm not a member of the academy. I still do have a rooting interest, however, as I'd be happy to see Allison Janney, Sam Rockwell, and Frances McDormand take home trophies just because they are all personal favorites of mine.
