    :D:p@Cody Fosnaugh, Fine! You know what they say about opinions ...everyone has one.

    There is a long, long list of movies and actors who people think should have gotten Oscars throughout the years. And some of the biggest money makers are viewed by some people as garbage.

    Cody, I think Arlene means that that type of movie will never win an oscar and I tend to agree.

    I enjoyed the last one and it was good but a different type of movie wins oscars.

    @Chrissy Page, yes you're right. And FWIW, there have been some movies which I thought were stinkers that won Oscars. Go figure.

    I don't have anything against Star Wars, it's just not my type of movie.

    Just gotta watch what is said about Star Wars to it's fans.......including the kids. All of us defend our movie. :D

    BTW, if you didn't see it, there was a big tribute to Star Wars on the 60th Anniversary of Disneyland on tv. Everyone in the huge audience had blue light-up toy lightsabers and were waving them while the orchestra was playing the Star Wars theme and showing clips of 1, 2, 3 and 7. It was terrific!

    Didn't watch the Disney tribute; as I said I am not a fan of Star Wars. Just not interested.

    Anyway........back to Oscars.

    Anyone notice how poorly Louis Gossett looked at the Oscars? I read he's had some health problems. I remember when he won Oscar for "Officer and a Gentleman". Gosh, has it really been over 30 yrs?

    Wasn't trying to convince you to be a Star Wars fan, just wondered if anyone had watched the 60th Anniversary Celebration of Disney tribute to the movie.

    I also notice how much weight Woopi has put on since her Ghost movie days.

    I remember seeing Louis Gossett in Enemy Mine and the Iron Eagle movies.

    Leonardo DiCaprio is 41 - but he'll probably always have that little boy face. :)

    I'd like to see The Revenant, but Room is still first on my list.

    I haven't even looked at what the Revenant is about but I can rent Room for $5.99 on Amazon and may do that soon.

    Hey, what about Mad Max: Fury Road? What a great family film that is (only kidding). Hummmm, did someone here say Sci-Fi movies don't get Oscars? Actually, I have no idea how this movie won anything. I think we need all new members in the Academy for voting!
