You guys aren’t serious about this post, right? I mean, really?

@isajulrah You don’t like this post?

Seems like there are more important issues to spend time on, but I get that it’s fun sometimes to have a little distraction.

I will have to check it out :+1:

That’d be great and share your thoughts later. If you recommend any movie I’d appreciate it too.

P.S. I personally think Janelle Monae deserved to be nominated for playing twin sisters in “The knives out 2”. She did a great job only by switching her accents, which for me is already incredible.

Did you watch the Banshees movie? It wasn’t a thriller or action film at all, but I liked it.

I don’t see why The Faberman’s is getting so much love. Not Oscar worthy in my book.

“…more important issues to spend time on…”

Bovada is a on-line gambling site. Of course there are more important issues than gambling. If you don’t gamble, why are you on Bovada in the first place?

Austin Butler will win best actor and it’s not close.

She is a very good actress. The first role I remember her in was on the second season of Prime Video’s series “Homecoming.” I thought the show was mediocre, but she was outstanding. But I just checked and she also starred in “Hidden Figures,” which was four years earlier. That’s actually the mark of a good actor: when you don’t remember the actor, just the character, like with Daniel Day Lewis, who becomes the character he plays and you just don’t pay attention to who the actor is. Monáe is like that for me.

Maybe a little biased, Elvis? :joy:

@StndrDeviant, I already added her movies in the watchlist, lol. I’ll take any other suggestions too.

I watched the Avatar the other day. It’s a beautiful movie, with all the 3D affects. I’m sure technology wise it’s a peak of moviemaking, but The best picture? I’d say it’s a bit exaggeration.

Dominic, any way we will be able to run parlays on Oscars or is it straight bets only?

@Schneebs, I’m not really sure, to be honest. If you want specific combination in Parley let me know and I’ll check with sports.
