Jokes on all you. I get to keep my five bucks.

Never underestimate the Academy's ability to fuck up the Best Picture category.
I am still encouraged with Roma's nomination, though. I don't really care that much about the Netflix angle (although I do worry a little about what will be lost without theatrical distribution), but because it was a foreign language film. It has happened in the past, but largely such films are relegated to a sub-category.
That, with Pawel Pawlikowski and Alfonso Cuaron being nominated for best directed is pretty big, too.
(Bohemian Rhapsody getting Best Film Editing is one of the most insane choices I have ever seen, though. Holy crap do they not have any understanding of even the technical level of their medium.)
