Piercing Ken Thoughts: So I have to admit that I didn’t watch The Oscars as they were happening live and only began scanning for the winners once about 2/3’s of the ceremony had run its course. Not that you need this information but Sunday nights are early escape from work and there is a LOT to do once I get home. That meant that I was playing catch-up on “The Slap” and since we aren’t a gossip column here I can only say that I thought it was pretty crappy to have been done. I was mostly happy with the winners and think I will do something for “Dune” over on since it won so many awards. That can’t hurt for some additional traffic either which I am always game for. I do admit some surprise about this whole “Oscar Cheer Moment” and seeing the Zack Snyder Justice League come out on top of the spectacular “Spider-Man: No Way Home” moment and the “Avengers: Endgame” moment. So many people watched that version of the film at home so how can you gauge it being the most cheered moment. I saw the film and that scene didn’t find me jumping around the apartment while the other two I mentioned nearly cost me an expensive bag of popcorn. What do you in the readership think about this year’s Oscars? Did you watch? Chime in down below in the comments section and I shall return soon with more stuff to entertain you. Please stay safe out there because while masks are around us less and less, this virus is still very much a thing. I’m out.
