I won't watch it, I'll scroll thru the list of winners tomorrow.  Even though I haven't seen any of
the movies nominated other than watching trailers and reading critics, I've said all along I thought
The Shape of Water and Sally Hawkins would win, and Gary Oldman was a lock.  Sam Rockwell and Alison
Janney for the supporting categories.  

If there is any of the above I am shaky on it is best actress which I think is perhaps a toss-up
between her and Frances McDormand.  I really like the Best Supporting Actor race, where you have
four great actors (Richard Jenkins, Woody Harrelson, Willem DeFoe and Rockwell) who have never won,
along with Plummer, who has won and the odds are very unlikely he will win again, so one of these
actors will get an Oscar.
