    I think it is such a shame that they are now including movies from stations not everyone gets. This has turned me off watching them this year. Never saw most of these shows because they are not on “regular” tv stations here in BC and I’m not paying an arm and a leg to get them. Will stay to watching the Oscars as I see a number of movies during the year.
    Still love the red carpet moment though.
