I would be lying if I told you that I was a fan of the Oscars, I mean who puts on an award show without a host? Don't get me wrong I love a good movie but I'm definitely not the person you find at the theater every week or couch surfing on a regular basis. I did catch Ford vs. Ferrari which I thought was an excellent film about relationships and the importance of a significant other that encourages you to live out your dreams. The latest Bad Boys Movie was INTENSE and I felt like It got a bit dark but then again this is the guy who seldom drinks coffee and right before that movie I had a large Mocha from Java ( probably not the best move on my behalf ) so it's safe to say I was a little on edge. The good news for me is that one of the two movies I watched is actually nominated for Best Picture. Here is the complete list of Nominations as seen on ktvb.
