Well. My grand plan of spending January and early February watching nominees did not go well. I was too invested in impeachment. And when it wasn't on or I was taking a break from coverage, I needed to catch up on other things. I can pause and restart watching a rerun on netflix or whatever, but watching a supposedly good movie for the first time needs a level of concentration I just did not have. And my major complaint about movies being too long is still valid.

So here it is two days away and I've seen a few nominees in the technical categories and that's it. I can't remember when I last saw so few noms. I'm not particularly looking forward to it since I haven't seen anything and there isn't some *amazing* host. I'll watch and I'll be grumpy tired Monday but it's a bummer on a personal level for me.
