Piercing Ken Thoughts: So there you have it folks, a whole lot of talent being given the honors. It was nice to see the late Chadwick Boseman honored once again, I am sure going to miss what he could have brought to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and according to the highlight reels it seems that Cardi B is pregnant with her second child. There didn’t seem to be an In Memoriam segment though which I found surprising as generally all the awards shows do them. That’s all I have for this one and I will close up now and say see you again soon. Feel free to chime in down below in the comments if you’d like. Stay safe out there.
