User Reviews

Dull and boring and predictable.
6 March 2018 | by blanbrnSee all my reviews

This latest annual edition of "The Oscars" "The 90th Academy Awards" wasn't one of the best ones as it just didn't hold interest it seemed a little dull and boring. As usual the ceremony is long as always the long awards season comes to an end! And even though this season plenty of the nominees were good, still a lot were not blockbusters to hold mainstream interest. And their were no surprises or upsets, as the expected favorites all won, it's like a repeat of "The Golden Globes", "SAG", and "Guild Awards".

Still the show was funny with Jimmy Kimmel again as host who tried with skits and fun sides like prizes and the montages of past winners were memorable before the current awards were given. And yes the ladies message of "The Me Too" movement was in full force.

"The Shape of Water" rightfully won best picture as it was a great blend of sci-fi drama that tied in perfect with love, connection, and fantasy as that's what movies are about that being dreams. And Gary and Frances were untouchable locks as best actor and actress winners. And Sam and Allison were the eye catching winners of supporting actor and actress trophies. Really nothing great enough said.
