What a fantastic call, I must say. I knew LLL wouldn't win.

Yep. Congrats. Great, great call. You are a fantastic predictor. Let's see if you can make it a hat-trick.

I think LLL lost for being white as much as Moonlight won for being black. It wasn't just BP that showed LLL's weakness as not getting a sound award and losing Editing to Hacksaw were red flags

I'm glad that La La Land won in its best areas; Score, Song, and Cinematography.

Take that Donald Trump! ~_~ This is even worse than Birdman winning.

Stone was overdue an Oscar. Chazelle's win made up for Whiplash. I'm putting Best Picture out of my mind. It was all political. The best film did not win. End of.

Post Re: Moonlight is going to win BP
Given that four of the last 5 oscars have had a BP/BD split (though admittedly, Argo is a special case), it may just be that voters are far more open to the prospect. Gravity, The Revenant, and La La Land and far flashier and more "director" flicks than 12 years, Spotlight or Moonlight in any case.

i mean sure there were some red flags but it won SIX Oscars man. That's the second most ever for a film to not win BP. Cabaret holds the record for 8 and that lost to The Godfather so its a bit understandable.

I fully think the Academy just felt it couldn't give it BP given the image it would create. All other awards are far less important.

gravity won seven. star wars won six plus a special achievement one.

The image it creates?? So having white people in your film is an automatic disqualification? I guess we solved racism!!

It was fear that got Moonlight the win. Fear that people would talk about #OscarsSoWhite again. When the Academy should have awarded Best Picture to La La Land and stuck by their decision that the best film won.

la la land also ends by fantasizing about a happy ending that doesn't actually happen, while moonlight is about getting a second chance.

I see why it won, and it is why I predicted Hidden Figures. It's just disappointing and even though you liked the movie more, it is the exact same as the Crash win.

Ha ha. Can't blame you for being arrogant here. I'd do the same.

See you next year.

He isn't brave enough to risk money on it. Which is surprising because he has loads of money left from his Who Wants to be a Millionaire win in 2008.
