    What? A victorian-era film isn’t going to win best costume?

    Not too shabby, sir.

    Did you enjoy the Awards, overall? What would you have changed about them?

      The show was just-ok. A hark back to the late 90s of Oscar ceremonies and thus a total disconnect with me. My picks went well however.

    I am in Korea… though with technology I could be a lot more connected, I have no idea who/what won. How were your predictions?!

      I didn’t do too bad- 18-24.
