Denzel Deserves Another Oscar, But Not the Academy's Charity

Here’s how and when to watch the Oscars in the UK this weekend 1

It's all going down at the 90th Academy Awards.

The 90th Annual Academy Awards are being presented at 7 p.m. Sunday on ABC, channel 8, cable 1008, and you can stream the show at or with the ABC app. Red-carpet coverage begins on ABC exclusively at 5:30 p.m.

Voting members - up after the Academy increased membership to improve diversity.

The movie starring Sally Hawkins, Richard Jenkins and Octavia Spencer nabbed the most Oscar nominations with 13, including best picture, director and actress.

Amongst the frontrunners at this year's Oscars, The Shape of Water and Get Out encompass a major part of the best and the most promising elements of Hollywood. I have to remember every day that it's not about me; it's about the people who are there to win the awards. On top of just being a great story with masterful actors in the three main roles, "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri" will win Best Picture, for me, because of the story's and characters' depth.

Should Win: Lesley Manville upstaged Daniel Day-Lewis (in a good way) as the steadfast Cyril, who can be sometimes terrifying and often amusing and without whom "Phantom Thread" would have come crashing to the ground.

34 - The number of times winners have thanked Harvey Weinstein in acceptance speeches at the Oscars according to analysis in 2015 - he was thanked more than God, but came second to Steven Spielberg.

Kaluuya is also nominated in the best actor category - against fellow Brit Gary Oldman, for his transformation into wartime prime minister Sir Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour. Last year, the envelope snafu occurred during the presentation for Best Picture.

While there is no official repeat planned, some actresses have indicated they will again wear black in support of #MeToo on Sunday.

45 - The age of the youngest best supporting actress nominee.

"Mudbound" and "The Big Sick" were conspicuously absent from the best picture category, though they received other nominations. Officials noted that Cullinan was frequently on his cell phone backstage, even snapping a photo of best-actress victor Emma Stone as she walked off stage - around the time he should have been handing the best-picture envelope to Beatty. One must speculate if the Anti-Trump sentiment combined with the tales of sexual harassment will sink the Oscars ratings even lower this year?

Films like "Call Me By Your Name" and "Darkest Hour" - worthy efforts that drew audiences small enough to fit in a phone booth - are meaningless to the swath of filmgoers who likely also haven't seen underachievers like "Lady Bird" and "Phantom Thread".

The ceremony will be hosted at the Dolby Theatre, Hollywood and Highland Centre in Los Angeles, USA on March 4.

POST CONTINUES BELOWthe point is, the academy is not above handing out sympathy statues. or just fucking it up in general. The woman's activist group has raised over $21 million for their legal fund since it's inception.

The Time's Up initiative is not planning a coordinated protest on Sunday - like the striking red carpet "blackout" at the Golden Globes.

Douglas Fairbanks co-hosted the first Academy Awards with William C. deMille in 1929.
