For my participation pic - I still think Dolemite Is My Name was a huge snub, especially Wesley Snipes.
Great flick! :clap:

Too bad Coming 2 America wasn't as good. (It was sooo bad!)

Just saw a commercial for the Oscars or I would've completely forgotten this year. I've made my picks. Lots of guessing this time as I was too busy watching this year's biggest snub on repeat (pic related) instead of the movies that were nominated.

Completely unprepared and picks will absolutely be last minute but can't miss out on this.

I can't say I'm much up on the candidates. Every time we think about watching one of this year's crop of films, the exhaustion of the awful year overwhelms us and we binge Parks and Rec instead. So here's my memorable ceremonies moment, for your consideration:

For real. Was doing some research a few days ago and it seemed like there are way fewer clear winners than usual.

Will make for a fun show tho. Picked up some nice steaks, have some good bevs planned, gonna do it up.

I think I’ve seen like two films nominated this year? And they’re both movies I saw with my kids. I miss going to the movies!

Chose Mr. Chigurh because most of my picks were coin tosses.

Let's go!!

Favorite competition on EB.

It's a greater challenge this year settling on my picks. The gulf between what I think should win and what I think will win is far wider than in other years. Suffice it to say, I hear you RA, about the overt politicization. Hoping to have a film year as strong as 2019 again sometime soon.

I did like Mank and Minari very much. And I thought Riz Ahmed was really great in Sound Of Metal.

My participation pic, almost left that part out:

Totally agree with you. At times I felt I watched a completely different film than some of the voters. In many cases, who should win versus who I think will win are miles apart.

^Returning champ in the house! :clap:

Onesheet, what was your score last year? I got 21/24 and it wasn't tops. I think you and duckyhoward (possibly others?) scored higher.
