For the record, before the Oscars start, I’m calling best picture for Birdman. I saw both Birdman and Boyhood and Birdman was the better movie. If truth be told I actually liked The Grand Budapest Hotel better than either of them, but I’m guessing that’s not going to happen . . .
Not exactly a big surprise, was it . . .

Interesting critique of the Oscars in the New Yorker. I’ve never sat through a full awards show and don’t intend to start, but I wonder if there are other awards show that would be worth the time (seen bits of the BAFTAs before, wasn’t impressed). What about the Academy Sci-Tech Awards show, I wonder what that’s like . . .
Good, professional etiquette is gender neutral. I didn’t see him draping himself all over other men.
I believe Count Johann of Travolta was on a recruiting run among the A-Listers as there has been a not too surprising exodus away from Scientology clutches by female members.
