Re: Bohemian Rhapsody

If Malek and Close win, the Best Actor winner will be 34 years younger than the Best Actress winner. Generally, the Best Actor winner is older; so, does anyone know if this would be a record?

Re: Details of the February 24th Presentation

I think this is a good time to restate something I said a year or so ago. Why do I think people complain about how long the Oscars last, but, do not complain about how long the Superbowl lasts? It is because they do not have to stay up late for the Superbowl. As the Oscars are now on Sundays anyway,...

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

We went off the gold standard in 1971. Since then, we do not have actual stockpiles of gold or anything else in the federal reserve to back our currency's worth. In simplistic terms, our paper money and coins are worth what is printed on them because the government says they are and we have faith i...

Re: Details of the February 24th Presentation

I wasn't planning on watching the show this year because I already know that the people I am passionate about winning (Olivia Colman, Spike Lee, Richard E. Grant, Shoplifters) are not going to win so I'll pass but I would not be impressed if one of the categories that I was interesting in watching ...

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

Okay, Magilla, I have now read all of both articles. The first article entirely sidesteps governments being able to run deficits without borrowing money; and, I believe all the examples given, except for Iceland, are of nations that do not have their own sovereign currency. They are all either membe...

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

It is impossible for the Federal Government to ever be forced into bankruptcy. This is one thing that Trump said that is actually correct, "The Government prints the money." This means that the Government does not need to borrow money to run deficits. It can simply print more money. The o...

Big Magilla wrote Here, though, is the problem. Totally free healthcare right out the gate, especially if tuition free college and other giveaways are included in their plans would bankrupt the economy for sure. It can be done, but over time, not all at once. That is my concern as well especially w...

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

I just realized it is now reasonably possible that the Democratic Presidential nominee, whoever he or she is, will support a Green New Deal, a Federal Job Guarantee, a $15 Minimum Wage, Single-Payer Health Care, Tuition-Free-Public College, and, much stricter financial regulation. Crossing my finger...

Re: Trivia, if you please

By my count, 13 of the 20 acting nominations are for playing people who have lived/are living. If this is article is correct: https://www.buzzfeed.com/adambvary/osca ... eal-people, plus with my knowledge of the later Oscars, this is an all-time record.
