Oscar 2015, You Little Minx

Despite everything, I am a huge fan of the Academy Awards. They’re all pomp, circumstances, pathology, and glitter. This year’s award season has been especially dramatic, and I confess I have horses in this race, spiritually at least. This is always unwise when it comes to such institutionalized shenanigans. Hopes are bound to be dashed (if faith hardly wavered). Anyway, here are my Talking Pictures 2015 Oscar predictions (yep, it’s video footage), my #OscarSoWhite tirade, and where I can be found ranting tonight. Join me if you please, dear Sirenaders, and remember: I like you, I really like you. (That old chestnut never gets tired in my book.)
