Bohemian Rhapsody got four awards last night it very much deserved, inc. Rami Malek who did a great job playing Freddie Mercury.  The other three were for editing/mixing sound and editing the film footage, all which had to have been very challenging.  It didn't deserve, IMO at least, best picture or best directing--it was just a standard biopic after all.  Rami's work and the technical aspects of selling him as Mercury were outstanding, however.  Just my take on it.

I agree, Rami sold the movie with his "outstanding"performance, but it wasn't a "Best Picture" to me either.  He's taken home all the major awards for it.  I figured the vote would go political with one of the "Black..." movies winning, or Vice, but it didn't...yay.  Glad Green Book won...it was great and both Viggo and Mahershala deserve an Oscar.  Mahershala Ali's piano playing was out of this world fantastic.

I'm not into the awards either, I just like being entertained.  They are just too full of inflated egos, along with being very political.

I will listen to the Grammys for the music, if nothing else is on that I want to watch.  As I said, I can't stand to see the egos and hear them talk about themselves.

Here's my thing.  I love to be entertained, and prefer stage performances and concerts (not rock in crowds).  Sometimes the "live" is better than the album song, but most often the album is better.  I think when they perform a song live they want to change it around, and in so doing they sometimes ruin it.
