    They need to include stunt performers, and then have them reenact nominated scenes at the ceremony. That would be way more entertaining than those crappy song and dance things that they do now.

    A Star is Born wasn't bad, and had good performances, but I didn't think it was a good movie. Seemed very rote. The initial "fight" where Gaga punched the guy in the bar was really confusing.

    I haven't seen A Fish Called Wanda for ages - I really should watch it again.

    I thought it was hilarious when I first saw it as a high school student (and a big fan of Monty Python), and Kevin Kline was fantastic as Otto.

    "C-c-c-coming to k-k-kill me, K-k-ken?"
    "Don't call me stupid!"

    It was pretty hilarious. Kevin Kline won an Oscar for that movie.

    A gentle story about a non-threatening black man driving around? Can't not give that one Best Picture

    Free Solo was one of the best movies of the last several years that I have seen. So happy that it won the Best Documentary Feature Oscar. The female filmmaker was completely correct that the film would have been boring without Sanni McCandless, Alex Honnold's girlfriend. Her presence--which was quite unexpected, as she met Alex at a book signing after filming had started--gave the subject and the movie a humanity it would have otherwise lacked.

    Chin wasn't even thinking about a feature film for his Meru footage before hooking up with Elizabeth. I remember Chin also saying it would't have occurred to him to include the family backstories and interviews, which is what made that film so compelling. She knows what she is doing.

    I don't watch a lot of movies so other than Black Panther and Bohemian Rhapsody, I haven't heard of a lot of the other movies that won.
