And the Oscar for Best Picture goes to...

No surprise here.  Was praying for a Promising Young Woman upset, but oh well...  I like the idea of this movie, and much of the execution, and am happy enough to see it win.

Though man do I miss the days of widely seen and entertaining movies winning Best Picture, like Forrest Gump, TitanicShakespeare in Love, Chicago, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the KingThe Departed... Last year was a SORT OF step back to that - while Parasite wasn't BIG necessarily, boy was it buzzed about, and BOY was it entertaining.  Maybe Dune or West Side Story or In the Heights (while none are original) will bring us back towards those times next year...
