S&T's Guide to Small-Talking the OSCARS #AcademyAwards #Nominations #ShapeOfWater #AcademyAwards #Hollywood #Oscars #WonderWomenSnub
The Oscar nominations are an excellent opportunity for you to make small talk, even if you don't know what you're talking about! (S&T note: Talking about stuff you don't know anything about? That's our stock in trade right there!)
Here are some bullet points from Scotty & Tony's Guide to Oscar Small-Talk:
>Christopher Plummer nominated after Kevin Spacey is cut out of "All the Money in the World"
("I'm happy for Plummer... always thought he could've licensed his name out to a plumbing chain..."
>Academy Award Snubs ("I can't believe that *name of movie or actor* got snubbed by the Academy like that!" ...
-Wonder Woman didn't get nominated for Best Picture!?
-No Best Director nom for Spielberg?!
-No Tom Hanks Best Actor Nom!?
-James Franco won the Golden Globe, doesn't even get nominated at Oscars?!
-and Disaster Artist isn't considered for Best Picture?!
-Florida Project only gets one nom!? (Supporting Actor for Willem Dafoe)
-The Boss Baby gets a nom but NOT LEGO BATMAN?! #Outrage
>Remember last year they announced that La La Land won Best Picture when really Moonlight won?
("I hope those buffoons at the Academy don't pull a La La Land/ Moonlight debacle again- am I right?!")
>On Jimmy Kimmel hosting again this year...
("Jimmy does a good job- I love it when he does that thing where he makes fun of Hollywood stereotypes!")
Here are the Top Noms...
