The lack of female representation should be noted in terms of directors. Greta Gerwig's Little Women is up for Best Picture, but she was snubbed for a Director nomination. We hope Parasite cleans up, because it was a fantastic movie.

Sir Elton knew about #Megxit before the Queen, according to a new report. Is this high treason? He is a Knight of the Realm, isn't it his duty to notify the Queen of activity like that? This also means Oprah and Elton both knew about Prince Harry and Meghan's plan before the Royal Family did.
