Oscars 2020: Independent Spirit Awards

So apparently the Independent Spirit Awards were handed out on Thursday instead of today. No idea why that happened, since I thought it was a truth universally acknowledged that the day before the Oscars, everyone got drunk in a tent on the beach in Santa Monica. But I guess they taped the ceremony like they did for SAG and just aired it. Okay then.

I refused to talk about it before today, though, because you just can’t have the Independent Spirit Awards properly before the day before the Oscars. It doesn’t affect the proceedings either way, so it’s mostly just window dressing. But hey, awards. (more…)


Pic of the Day: ♫ “Thanks for the memory / Of candlelight and wine, castles on the Rhine / The Parthenon, and moments on the Hudson River line / How lovely it was / Many’s the time that we feasted / And many’s the time that we fasted / Oh well, it was swell while it lasted / We did have fun, and no harm done.” ♫
