Saturday night, Sharon, Jack and I watched Bombshell. This is part of our continuing effort to see all of the Oscar nominated films. At the 92nd Academy Awards, it earned three nominations: Best Actress (Charlize Theron), Best Supporting Actress (Margot Robbie), and Best Makeup and Hairstyling. It won the latter.

In addition to starring roles for Theron as Megyn Kelly, Robbie and Nicole Kidman as Gretchen Carlson, the film features John Lithgow as Roger Ailes, Kate McKinnon, Connie Britton, Malcolm McDowell, and Allison Janney. The movie is based upon the accounts of the women at Fox News who set out to expose CEO Roger Ailes for sexual harassment.

Both Sharon and I liked the film more than we thought that we would. When it ended, Sharon said "that was good; I am surprised that it wasn't nominated for best picture." The movie is definitely worth looking for and watching. I think that we were both surprised how much the movie was wrapped up in Trump's run for the presidency in 2016.
