Thank goodness Mr. Skin marched his minions in formation to watch this reality crap so we don’t have to.

Ash Lee showed the whole works in episode 9.

If Herr Haut is correct, that appears to be the only bush in the series. Given the absence of celebrities, I will probably never know whether that is correct. If they ever do Celebrity Couple to Throuple, I’ll be all over that shit.

As the Plastered Pop commented:

Selena Gomez brought her titties to Paris and produced what I assume is a TikTok that she has posted to her instagram in Paris. She is dating / fucking some troll-looking creature who apparently makes music, but who looks like he lives in the enchanted forest where he eats babies.

I seldom agree with the drunken one, but he’s right about Benny Blanco. That guy looks like he should be under a bridge waiting to pounce on billy goats. When you get down to it, he’s an inspiration to us all. If he can land Selena Gomez, most of us should have a chance at a three-way with Zendaya and Sydney Sweeney. I’m so inspired that I’m going to see if I can get Taylor Swift to give up that football dude.

Oppenheimer is the prohibitive favorite:

The format of the list below is (Title Odds IMDb RT%)

Oppenheimer -700 8.4 93%
Poor Things +1200 8.4 92%
Barbie +1400 6.9 88%
The Holdovers +1400 8.0 97%
Killers of the Flower Moon +2500 7.7 93%
Anatomy of a Fall +2500 7.8 96%
The Zone of Interest +4000 7.7 93%
American Fiction +5000 7.6 94%
Past Lives +10000 7.9 96%
Maestro +10000 6.6 79%

I have seen them all but Anatomy of a Fall and Past Lives. I will see Anatomy tomorrow, but I’m not sure when I’ll see Past Lives. I agree with IMDb voters and critics that Maestro is the weakest entry. I think Bradley Cooper did a great job of putting it all together as the director, but not such a great job on the script.

———–

Speaking of Oppenheimer, Cillian Murphy and Robert Downey Junior are also heavy favorites for the male acting nods, and Chris Nolan is considered an absolute lock for the direction award. (-2000)

————

Last year all the favorites won in the major categories except for Best Supporting Actress, where Angela Bassett was considered a very slight favorite over the winner, Jamie Lee Curtis. That one was considered a three-way horse race among those two and Kerry Condon, and it was so closely matched that it would be fair to say that they were all co-favorites.

Only one long shot came in last year. All Quiet paid off 9-1 for best production design. (I’m assuming that you consider 9-1 a long shot, and that you give a shit about the Oscar for production design).
