    One thing I thought was odd was that they had people introduce the people that would then introduce something. And can someone please explain the Eminem segment to me. I know he had 8 Mile come out ages ago, but I was confused as to why he came out to sing a song now?

    Oh and I watched Parasite last night and loved it
    So happy you loved Parasite!

    As for Eminem, that's pure PR. His new album just dropped. Plain and simple. I do think it was cool because he ditched the Oscars all those years ago and has now made up for it. Apparently, he always regretted not performing that night.

    Ah ok, that makes sense. Well I guess as much sense as it's going to I knew there must have been a connection to something. Had no idea he had a new album out. Still an odd choice if you ask me though.

    No doubt. It certainly came out of nowhere.

    That was weird. Even George MacKay seemed to think it was weird as he was introducing someone else.
    It makes sense when there's a host introducing presenters. But when there's no host, and they try to keep the same format, they have to introduce people to introduce the presenters. It's like the people writing the intros and the people deciding there would be no host didn't talk to each other.

    I wanted to see Scorsese react to Eminem, and I lost it when they showed him fighting off a powerful nap.

    I was ok with the show, but could live without the opening act and all that stuff. I can't remember all that from when I was a kid, but maybe. I should look to see if any of the old shows are up somewhere. Anyway, with the exceptions of a couple of people I just loathe, it was fine if long.

    1. His new album (as Mike mentioned)
    2. It fed into the progressive/'woke' theme they were going for
    3. Most importantly, they were honoring the enduring impact certain songs had on different films where the two become almost inextricable

    I haven't followed this thread, so apologies if this has already been discussed.

    I haven't seen "A beautiful day in the neighborhood". Wasn't Fred Rodgers the main character in the movie? Why was Tom Hanks nominated for supporting actor and not leading actor?

    He's a supporting character. It's about a journalist, I believe.

    Yeah, Mr. Rogers is in it more than I thought he would be, but it's definitely about the journalist and how Mr. Rogers impacted his way of thinking rather than a straight-up biopic.

    To be fair Eminem is still extraordinarily popular. Quoting from wikipedia here because I couldn't remember the exact details "Eminem has had ten number one albums on the Billboard 200, which all consecutively debuted at number one on the chart making him the only artist to achieve this" that 10th album is his most recent one which released in January.

    Agree. Eninem is far from done. He is still in his prime and is LOVED all over the world. There is none and never has been anyone like his... he is a master at his craft. I admit... I am a huge fan as well.

    That guy comes off as an ignorant buffoon. Judging by all the comic books in the background, he should probably just stick to films of that nature.

    Foreign films have been nominated for Best Picture (or the equivalent) Oscar since 1938. Odd that you'd get upset that one would actually win.
