93rd Academy Awards Showcase Changes, ‘Nomadland’ as Best Picture, and More

Well now, here we are. The Oscars are in the books. And you know what? Up until the end of the show, I was mostly okay with the changes that Steven Soderbergh and company instituted. After all, this Academy Award ceremony is different than any other, so the 93rd Academy Awards should be unique. Moving Best Picture from the end, though? Nope, that’s a bridge too far. Not only did you take the moment away from Nomadland, the clear plan was to showcase Chadwick Boseman in Best Actor, but that backfired! In the end, Anthony Hopkins pulled the upset. More to come tomorrow, but for now, the result are below. Make of them what you will…
