Oscars tonight. The Super Bowl for knitters. I always watch. I’ve got 12 pints of Jeni’s ice cream over here if anybody wants to come hang out. (Thanks, Kay, for getting my butterfat consumption where it needs to be.)
Superquick post today because I’ve got knitting to do, people. Also: I am on a two-day Twitter diet. As a result, I have about six hours of free time that I’m going to use for something supernoble like collecting all the links I’d be Tweeting if I weren’t on this stupid Twitter diet so I can dump them onto Twitter all at once on Monday. Twitter is sharing! Twitter is love! Sort of.
Back to the point here. You probably haven’t seen a lot of the Oscar-nominated films, so here is a list from HighSnobiety.com (new one to me) of where you can watch 27 of the nominees online.
Of these, I have only seen OJ: Made in America, which is riveting. My dad’s review of Manchester by the Sea: “Well, it starts off depressing and goes downhill from there.”
I will say that the Arrival trailer up top feels kind of newsy. No, that’s not Amy Adams at a town hall meeting; she’s being taken to interact with the aliens who have just landed on Earth.
