  1. You left out Best Song Husavik from Eurovision Song Contest:The Story of Fire Saga.

    The film has been nominated for a Hugo. I haven’t seen it but that nomination for the Hugo was a big surprise.

  2. Linda Robinett: The Guardian reports Best Song went to “Fight For You” from Judas and the Black Messiah. Not to the song you named.

  3. I am just astonished to read this issue.

    It seems that lives have changed a lot during isolation. Not a single person in our karass noticed that either the Golden Raspberries or the Oscars were happening. Although we do not avidly give attention to awards ceremonies (there are now awards given daily for something or other, sometimes two, or even three, in a day), we do at least usually notice that they are happening and look up the winners.

    This year the Oscars seemed of less importance than making sure the trash got taken out to be collected on Monday morning.

  4. @Jon DeCles
    Viewership (U.S.) was less than half of last years, and less than 1/4th of what it was 7 years ago.

  5. To be precise, H.E.R. took home the award for Best Original Song. Her collaboration with Dernst Emile II and Tiara Thomas, “Fight for You,” from Judas and the Black Messiah, won over songs from The Trial of the Chicago 7 (“Hear My Voice”), Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga (“Husavik”), The Life Ahead (La Vita Davanti a Se) (“Io Sì (Seen)”), and One Night in Miami (“Speak Now”).

  6. The advertising posters are interesting. Possibly more so than the show itself.
