We're getting rain today... well, showers, on and off with not much accumulation. For some reason, whenever rain, or snow for that matter, people envision torrential downpours. That is rarely the case. Even the steady rains we get are slow to accumulate. Rain is predicted for tomorrow as well. Altogether we'll probably get about .75 of an inch, not enough to cause flood warnings. On the temp side, ours will be hovering in the mid 40s (F) all day. By this evening, most of the snow we received will be gone.
And I do have to briefly mention the Oscar snubs among other notes. I was surprised Greta Gerwig didn't get one, but but Barbie is a comedy and the directors (directors nominate directors) love them their drama. On Margot Robbie? I never thought she'd get a nomination; comedic performance. On Leonardo DiCaprio? Never thought he'd get one; he played stupid well, but his character was barely 2 dimensional.
On Oppenheimer's 13 nominations? They won't win all of them. Adapted Screenplay is going to Gerwig, and production design is going to Barbie. Costume design will probably go to Napoleon, the voters love period costumes.
Because Ryan Gosling is nominated, as well as his song, there's a good possibility we'll get to see him cavorting half-dressed across the stage singing "I'm Just Ken." He'll probably lose to Robert Downey Jr, who's black and white malevolence in Oppenheimer was so well played.
Anyway, this was a really good year for movies, in fact, I might compare it to 1939 when Gone with the Wind was up against The Wizard of Oz for best picture. Of course, that was also the year before war broke out across Europe.
I baked some Italian bread yesterday, and then made a BLT for dinner. Scrumptious.
