About Jackrabbit Slim

Location: Vegas, Baby! I’m much older than the other whippersnappers here, a baby boomer. I tend to be more snobbish about film, disdaining a lot of the multiplex fare for “cinema.” My favorite films: Woody Allen’s oeuvre (up until about 1990), The Godfather, The Graduate, A Hard Day’s Night, Pulp Fiction. Politics: Well, George McGovern was my political hero. I’m also a prickly atheist. Occupation: Poised to be an English teacher in Las Vegas. For many years I was an editor at Penthouse Magazine. My role on this blog seems to be writing lots of reviews and being the resident Oscar maven.

  4. I win, 17-13. That’s the first surprise Best PIcture winner since Crash. And Spotlight won only two Oscars, which is the fewest for a Best Picture in over 80 years. I’ll have a full post tomorrow.

  5. I can’t say I put hours of thought into selecting Rylance, but I think subconsciously I suspected too many voters would think Stallone was deserving of an Oscar after the incredible amount of junk he’s been involved in over the decades.
