Best Way to Watch the Oscars


What to do? Watch Downton Abbey or the Oscars?

How about both?

We watched Downton Abbey while recording the Oscars.

Fast forwarding through all the commercials and the awards that didn’t interest me,  I got to watch the Hollywood pat-itself-on-the-back show in a lot less time than watching it live.

There were almost no surprises.  The predictors got just about all of them right.  There was some uncertainly about Best Male Actor. Some predicted Michael Keaton would edge out  Eddie Redmayne, but he didn’t.  I was glad. Keating was really good as Birdman, but Redmayne was brilliant as astrophycist Stephen Hawkins in The Theory of Everything.
