Indeed.   The mostly ignoring of Da 5 Bloods (one minor nom) seemed like a mistake to me.

We'll try to catch Nomadland and Chicago 7 on streaming.   Though more interested in Judas and the Black Messiah, which viewing would involve signing up for HBO Max.   If it passed through theaters here,  I missed it.

CVII reminded me of e erythromycin I have ever seen from Aaron Sorkin - incredibly well written and.acted, but leaving no lasting impression on me.

Where the hell my autocorrect came up with that for "everything" I cannot say. But I like it so much I am leaving it.

I first  had to leap the hurdle of a movie titled "107," then why it reminded you of an antibiotic.  Happily I was able to decode Chicago 7, and erythromycin resistance soon followed. 

Sorkin's trademark "walk and talk" narrative style works well for some productions (like West Wing), but I've found it hard to keep up with at times.   Sometimes you have the impression you are learning a lot about a character,  but then it's melted away later.  That said,  I found Moneyball pretty good.   Some of his less acclaimed work,  like Charlie Wilson's War, I've liked more than the uber-hyped ones, like The Social Network.

Other interesting Oscar question: if both Judas and the Black Messiah are supporting actors, who is the lead?

God only knows. 

Seriously, if Stanfield (O'Neal) isn't a lead role,  I must not understand the meaning of the term.   Both Kaluuya and Stanfield would seem to be co-stars,  not supportings.

My spouse informs me she saw Spaceballs (Mel Brooks 1987 classic) for the first time while on a recent trip.   Wish I'd been along.   I liked it when I saw it back in the 80s, it's middle tier Brooks for me,  with Blazing S,  Young F,  and The Producers in the top tier.

May the Schwartz be with you.
