If only they brought Seth MacFarlene to host. Can you imagine the jokes he'd make about Weinstein?

Hopefully they won't mess up on announcing the Best Picture winner, like they did this year.

I kinda expect the silence breakers and/or #metoo campaigners in the movie business to open the show

Maybe have Meryl Streep lead them.
I expect a cringe fest with more awards than normal going to women. The might as well have a father ted type sign saying "not degenerates'.

I can't imagine that happening. There weren't an influx of black people winning awards after the #sowhite stuff that happened last year. Moonlight won, sure, but that was just the more deserving movie more than it being about a black individual.

I expect within a few years all male and female categories will be merged, and only black women will win the oscars until we irish start complaining about being marginalized and then we win it for a good 3-5 years after that. It will be known as the Saoirse Ronan era!

Thought according to all the gushing praise that all Saoirse Ronan had to do was turn up and she'd get the award. Now I see Sally Hawkins is the frontrunner at 13/8 (with PPs), with Ronan marked at 4/1. Even at 4/9 I'd say Gary Oldman is good value for Leading Actor; it's probably his time at last.

Outside of swinging a vote to a female director, is there much scope to award more Oscars to women than normal? Actor and Actress categories are split so not much of a statement to make there... what's left then? The technical awards? They don't grab headlines.

At least the edgy anti Trump smugness should be gone.

Why? After Trump throwing his weight behind Roy Moore despite all the allegations against him?
