96th Academy Awards

Over the last ten plus years, Sharon and I have enjoyed working our way through the Oscar nominated films. Sunday night, we watched the 96th Academy Awards.

I texted my predictions to Clan Heringa, including:
I got all of these right except Best Actress. I was pleasantly surprised that Emma Stone won. Personally, I would have picked Stone over Lily Gladstone, but would have bet that the Academy would give the Oscar to Gladstone.

Oppenheimer won seven Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor for Murphy, Best Supporting Actor for Downey Jr., Best Film Editing, Best Cinematography, and Best Original Score. Seven of the 10 best-picture nominees went home with at least something, with Maestro, Past Lives and Killers of the Flower Moon being the three that left empty-handed.

One footnote. We watched Zone of Interest and Society of the Snow over the last couple of days. I will post about those two movies this coming week.
