So, obviously, when I said “I’ll post the results of the 20/20 Oscars on Oscar Night” I meant “I’ll contract food poisoning and spend all day violently vomiting and wishing for the sweet release of death”. But hey, better to do that because of spoiled chicken than seeing Green Book win Best Movie, right?
Actually, if you’re interested, here’s my opinion on all the nominees:
Blackkklansman: Saw it, loved it.
The Favourite: Haven’t seen it but the trailer gave off a definite “Death of Stalin” vibe so I am in.
Bohemian Rhapsody: Occasionally rises to “guilty pleasure”.
Vice: Haven’t seen it, impressions are bad.
A Star Is Born: Haven’t seen it, heard great things.
Black Panther: Yeah it’s great but with the benefit of hindsight I don’t think it should have won. It wasn’t the best superhero movie ever. Heck it wasn’t the best superhero movie released this year. Double heck, it wasn’t even the best superhero movie this year featuring a black Marvel superhero and an all-time great hip hop soundtrack.
So, without further ado, let’s take a look at a historic record righted. Please give a warm welcome to our host, Kevin Hart!

Okay, so this is awkward. Best Director was a tie between the Wachowskis for the Matrix and…John Lasseter for Toy Story 2. And while I am of course aware of the allegations against Lasseter the fact remains that I do think Toy Story 2 is the better movie so…
Toy Story 2
Thanks to everyone who voted. Be sure to tune in next year when we re-assess the smouldering garbage fire that was 2000s cinematic output. Until then, goodbye from me SMOWE and new permanent recurring character Kevin Hart!
