  1. There was a time when we’d look forward to the Oscars like the Grand Final, discussing well before the event who we thought would win what. But now? Not a mention of it at work or at home. Why bother watching when we just about know what to expect? Two or three movies winning everything, interspersed with anti-Trump speeches and lectures on an alleged ‘pay gap’ from women who earn millions for a few weeks’ work. So no thanks, I think we’ll give the Oscars a miss ….. again.
