Time to fire up that recognizable theme music and… oh, wait, this isn’t supposed to be about Felix Unger disdainfully looking at his roommate’s pig sty of an apartment? Okay then, sorry. [sound of record needle scratching] Yeah, this is about last weekend’s big event, the 91st Academy Awards. And, yes, I’m late to the “pile on the Oscars” party. In my defense, I’m still trying to shake off a very long, grueling, and stressful work week, so please give me some slack.
Anyway, it goes without saying that the Academy Awards are the most scrutinized entertainment awards show on the planet. Even just hearing the word “Oscars” makes a human being consider at least one of three Oscar-related questions: How glamorous were the celebrities on the red carpet? Was the ceremony worth watching? And were the actual Oscar recipients deserving?
