I watched them yesterday, (on my laptop, because apparently HULU live doesn't have ABC and when I tried logging in to their app, it kept putting me in a loop that was stupidly frustrating), and they were surprisingly fun. I think not having a host made it feel more light-hearted than usual. Less heavy. There weren't any really awkward moments with the presenters either, because they didn't seem to try and write them any little skits, which was nice. And like usual, I hadn't seen hardly any of the movies nominated. Except for Black Panther. Samuel L Jackson and Brie Larson presented together and they both giggled like school kids the entire time. And someone wisely made the decision to put Chris Evans in the front row so he could help out when Regina King won the first Oscar given out. (Which yes, was a nice moment, but why is anyone in the front row who isn't nominated for something? They've got people that have to trudge from the back of the house, and there he and his brother are taking up two seats...) I wasn't particularly invested in any person or movie to win, but Olivia Colman's speech was a delight. Although I haven't seen any of the other movies up for Best Picture, when you look at what was nominated, The Green Book feels like a lot of voters chose it because it was safe to like, and The Favorite and Roma probably split the rest of the votes.
I kept up by refreshing Indiewire's website. I thought it was funny that Spike Lee was so pissed that Green Book won that Jordan Peele had to calm him down. Later, Lee said that every time he goes to the Oscars he gets beat by a movie about someone driving someone else.
My bet was that The Favourite was going to win. I think Black Panther should have because it had the biggest cutural impact (outside of maybe Spider-verse), and it'll be talked about 20 years from now. All these others, not as much, and especially not Green Book (outside of people lamenting the fact that it's the Shakespeare in Love of its time).
There's nothing an agnostic can't do if he doesn't know whether he believes in anything or not.
