The Oscars have come and gone and, has been the case in the past, there have been mixed reviews on the telecast. Some thought it was cutting edge humor. Still others saw it as tasteless. The producers, in my opinion, were trying to entice a younger audience to start watching this program, which, typically, tends to skew older demographically. Whatever your opinion is on the telecast we can all agree that, as usual, it was way too long.
As to our own "can you guess the winner's contest".....we had one patron (out of 66 entries) who guessed all five winners correctly. Kudos to our patron Joyce Loew. Joyce won first prize of a new DVD of her own choosing. We had seven patrons who guessed four categories correctly. These patrons will have the opportunity to pick a new CD from a group of titles I have selected.
Here are the DVD release dates of the other best picture nominees:
