  1. Apparently Russell Crowe was meant to be presenting but he decided to go to the South Sydney Rabbitohs ‘World Club Challenge’ game instead of attending.

  2. This year is an all-round sad year for the Oscars. No really memorable movies. Finding an actor or actress that was really ‘outstanding’ this year was a struggle, apart from Eddie Redmayne portraying a brilliant Steven Hawking. So this year, I think no African-American should feel left out. ‘Selma’ was a good movie, but not really a movie I’d see twice.
