    Put Your Money On 'Green Book' In The Oscars!

    The odds are falling fast. It was +300 last week, only +200 currently. It's the best movie of the year by a long shot.

    Roma is the favorite but it's basically about as riveting as watching some Mexican lady clean your apartment. (Oops, accidentally gave away the plot.) Critics love it because it's got a foreign Director (they're in vogue these days) and because it's filmed in black and white......so it must be artistic. Academy voters, unlike critics, are actual filmmakers and do not yet consider Netflix to be cinema (it's TV) so they will shun Roma.

    Spike Lee is the single biggest racist in Hollywood. He's ridiculously full of himself. Widely disliked, not because he's black but because he's a miserable A-Hole. No chance for him......except for the adapted screenplay award perhaps.

    A Star Is Born was the front runner long ago but everyone tired of the insincerity of Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper. Don't believe me? Watch this....

    Nauseating. And Cooper seems to have lost a bit of humility as well.

    Bohemian Rhapsody? The original Director got fired and has since been accused of wide-scale pedophilia. Uh, no!

    The Favourite? Not likely. No one has seen it.

    Vice? Christian Bale was good but the story was too political.

    Green Book is your winner. Roma and Klansman camps mounted a massive smear campaign against this movie....and it kept a lot of viewers away. However, anyone who's seen this movie knows that it is an instant classic.

    (Green)Book it!

    Dim, they're both pretty good sized dogs. I really don't see the chalk Roma pulling it off.

    Nice pick Harry. Glad Roma didnít win. I walked out of the theater halfway through it, only done that a handful of times.

    Really liked Green Book though. Saw it twice.

    Worst best picture winner in a decade easily. Although Birdman wasn't very good either. Glad Black Panther didn't win at least

    Agreed the year Birdman won sucked. Stole best movie and best director from Boyhood and Rich Linklater. Boyhood was one of the most creative films made this century.

    Good call.. They got the best movie right this time. Shocked..

    I liked it but in my opinion it was the dog with the least amount of flees.

    Bohemian R was good too..
