So, uh, you know, the oscars are coming up, in a couple of weeks. Who is hosting? They still don't have one? I think they have several hosts. Oh, they do. Hopefully whoopi. Are they talking to you? I don't think they intend on having a single host. I tell you how I would like them to open the oscars. I would like them to open it with the guys from -- um -- queen. From the film. From "Bohemian rhapsody." I think -- if they opened it with "We are the champions" it would be a wonderful way to kick off the academy awards. Not that I know anything about this. But I'm just saying. I think that would be a great opening. Because who doesn't sing that? And who isn't a champion? That's powerful. Failed to mention him, rami Malek. He was on the show. He was spectacular in the film. E embodied Freddie Mercury. You don't know who is doing to win. I said this before about the nomination process. We're nominating films for very different reasons than you go see them. If I'm a sound person, I'm listening to the sound to see if it's clear, doing all the things it's supposed to do. Most people say, you never vote for the movies we vote for. We're voting for different things, that's why. It's not that we're ignoring it. Or not that we're not hip enough to know what y'all are seeing. We're groups. Actors, directors, sound people, hair and makeup. We're looking for the best of that year in our craft. Keep an eye on it.
