    With all these threads talking about the good and the bad about the Oscars I'm wondering who here plans to watch this years Oscars in its entirety?

    I never watch any award shows. If I'm interested in the winners, I will check the next day. In this case, I probably will not even do that.

    I can't decide whether to not watch the Oscars or not watch the Stupidbowl. I guess I'll compromise and watch neither of them.

    I plan to watch and we may actually host an Oscar party in the Garage Theater. We were going to host one last year but my wife and I both got nasty colds a few days before the telecast and we cancelled the party.

    That said, I am not personally vested in the Oscars this year. I've only seen 2 of the Best Picture nominees and don't really have much interest to see the others. In my humble opinion, 'Black Panther' didn't deserve a nomination for BP. I thought the film was good but not Oscar worthy.

    I'll be rooting for 'A Star is Born', the only other BP nominee I've seen and my favorite film for 2018.

    As usual, I want to see who won but I have no plans to watch the actual show. If someone I like wins, I MAY watch their speech online and even that's kind of a long shot.

    I have not watched it since the late 70s early 80s. My wife will sometimes turn it on to see what they are doing and try to see who has won something but it's a look at the list the next day kind of thing.

    I think watching these 5 minutes is better than watching 30 seconds of any awards show. The thing is if you want to hear any of these people talk about their films you can see them any time you want on the internet and in a more interesting and meaningful way. Hell, a lot of them you can actually converse with on the web if you so choose. So, I don't see any need to watch these shows...I mean at all.

    Never watch nor have any interest. Most of the winners will soon be forgotten. As usual will be watching one of Hitch's finest in homage to that great non-winner.

    A bit amazed at the overly negative reactions and the amount of folks skipping it.

    I thought some posters said this place was all about the cinema so I figured the votes would be opposite than they are.

    No way. I am not that interested in who or what is nominated. I am also not interested in their politics. I have stopped watching most of these shows. I have better things to do with my time, like watching movies.

    This is what really rubs me the wrong way. These elite a-holes patting themselves on their backs all night, telling us bottom feeders how we should think or who we should hate all while they hide in their secured mansions counting their cash.

    The only times I've watched the Oscars in the past 40 years has been those few times where I've participated in a "watch the Oscars chat" here on HTF. Those were enjoyable but, for me, more about the chat than what was going on on screen. They were also quite tiring (I'm usually asleep in my chair by 9:30pm so those late run times are a drain).

    Generally, I couldn't care less about any awards program or who wins.

    I love movies but since it's rare that my thoughts align with the Oscars, I don't put that much stock in them. Like I said earlier, I will definitely check out who won though.
