Hi everyone, Bryan here….

The 89th Oscars were announced today. These are supposed to be the Best Achievements in Filmmaking on all levels. However, year after year, The Academy and “their infinite wisdom” choose to pick dull films that should never be nominated. In fact, I bet you could go through most of the Winners of each year and realize you only watched that film or performance once and never thought about it again. At least The Academy had a good bit of diversity this year, but other than that – these Oscar nominations are boring, dull, and made me go to sleep just watching the equally not-fun announcement telecast.

Every year, there are of course some snubs of people or films that don’t receive a nomination. It happens. This year though, pretty much every film was snubbed that should have garnered that next step to that sweet sweet golden statue. I know the producers and executives have been trying to conjure up a bigger audience for the Oscars, but with safe, Oscar-Bait movies that you won’t watch again and forget in a year or two, why bother ever watching the Oscars, minus Jimmy Kimmel’s sure-to-be-funny performance.
