    Hey All,

    After exhausting a lot of options, we decided to host the Oscar “live chat” here on the message boards. This may not be ideal, but at least everyone that has registered on the website can join.

    Last night I posted in the Awards Journey that there is some last minute controversy regarding Holdovers plagiarism. That story is here, and I imagine it’ll be a hot topic tonight and the days to come. There’s still a lot unknown although it sounds like this has been discussed behind the scenes for awhile.

    Now we know where Payne got the term “Penis Cancer” from. I’d be very interested in looking at both screenplays, side-by-side. It’s a shame because I love that movie and is on my own top list this year.

    Agreed. One thing from the article that was interesting is they say the only non-plagiarized scene is when the teacher tells a story of a plagiarized paper. That film hit close to home for both Andrea and me, but in different ways.

    What is everyone eating? We used to have a thing where we bought food from Oscar nominated films, but not sure I want to eat what they had in Oppenheimer and The Holdovers. Now, get me to Portugal and I’ll eat the shit out of those pastries from Poor Things!

    I was going to have a couple of friends for dinner in honor of Society of the Snow, but they missed their plane.

    Alright, since we’re talking shit and life threatening situations, I’ll let the cat out of the shit bag. We are having dip. Similar to SuperBowl dip, but movie variety.

    At some point I hope my better half talks about the ghosts of Oscars past where we really did make food based on Oscar nominees. (It was easier when there were 5 nominees)

    No special food for us. We used to host a Super Bowl party but no Oscars Party. My wife works nights including Sunday night so no dice there. Maybe someday. I’m having salad, noodle soup with tofu, and some potsticker dumplings…..

    I think we stopped that tradition when the Oscars increased from 5 to 10 Best Picture nominees!

    I think we tried one year with 10 beers, but that was excessive.

    I told Aaron I just wanted pizza this year.

    Pizza from The Doughfather down the street over here!

    We basically did dips this year. Pizza sounds like a good choice!

    Weird that it starts at 7pm even with DLS time.

    We’re probably doing leftover Sunday maybe some quesadillas with some leftover meats.

    I’ll appreciate the show starting an hour early, but I hope the golf playoff will be over by then! Watching red carpet coverage on social media.

    Yes, I love red carpet shows. 😉

    Hey Rodney I found this on Reddit it linked to a Google drive with Frisco. Can’t comment on authenticity but would be curious how close/not it is to Holdovers.
