    Yeah, but I worry that black Bond would be less Conway Stern and more Ice Cube, simply because that’s how Hollywood does black action heroes.

    Haven't read anything by her in years, but she was one of the writers who got me into science fiction at a young age. Her work taught me how to dream. RIP.

    For people who care, Oscar nominations have been announced. Wikipedia link. Shape of Water is shaping up (geddit) to clean the slate, 13 nominations. Dunkirk came second with 8.

    I gotta get to the Oscar movies. Even the fucking King Kong movie sneaked in there. I forgot that was even a thing.

    I kinda want Jordan Peele to win Best Director just see him say "I'd like to thank the Academy".

    Oh, and Jimmy Kimmel is hosting, fuck me :/

    Oh I care. Someone had the audacity to put Baby Boss next to Coco.

    Farce.

    At least people are apparently as indignant as I am from what I've seen.

    I assume they needed to pad the category?
