  1. If only you could have voted for the Oscars! ‘Promising Young Woman,’ Carey Mulligan, and Emerald Fennell really got shafted. 2020 didn’t have a lot of great content to contend with vs. a typical year, so I just don’t get how they got nothing. Also, am I the only one who thinks that the Comedy/Musical category should be split? A prime example is that Hamilton lost to Borat. If they were the same genre, okay! But they’re not! Utter madness…
