Friday LinkFrogging - 3/2/18
Welcome to Oscar weekend kids.

Have you seen all the movies?

Have you espoused all your opinions?

Do you even care?

Sunday night is Hollywood's annual self-congratulatory extravaganza and we are ready here at home base.

No, I haven't seen all the nominees, but I've still got time.  Thanks to streaming and such I can get a few of the favorites in this weekend without ever leaving my couch.

America 2018!

I'm curious to see how the Academy handles the sex scandals that have plagued the industry this year.  Will they confront it head on or will they try to ignore it and focus on the dresses.

How often will Jimmy Kimmel joke about last year's best picture fiasco?  I'm sure there is a prop bet on that one.

And while celebrating Hollywood celebrating itself may seem superfluous in our current atmosphere, I simply don't care.  I still love movies.  I love going to movies.  I love good to good movies.  Hell, I love going to bad movies.

I saw this in a theater - 



I guess what I'm saying is I enjoy escapism.

All that being said, let's say hello to this week's cheesecake shall we?

This week we are featuring Greta Gerwig, indie darling turned Oscar nominated director.

Ms. Gerwig is going to the show for her work on Best Picture nominee, Lady Bird.

I didn't see Lady Bird, but my wife and kids saw it without me and loved it.

Before Lady Bird, Ms. Gerwig was a bonafide indie sensation, appearing in films like Lola Versus, Frances Ha, Mistress America and Baghead.

She also showed up in Jackie and The Mindy Project for your more mainstream memories.

She's the only woman nominated for Best Director in this #MeToo year, so it will be interesting to see how that all turns out.

Let's hit the links.
