I mean, I shot him a message first thing Sunday morning with an "OMG" text. It's not like he responded right away, with an "IKR" one, but........such is the commitment (or lack of) to this relationship.
So we have no witty remarks to share with you regarding our selections, as we had few even amongst ourselves. If ever.
As it turns out, the area from which I copied the nominees weren't even the entire list, so we kind of agreed to do was that list - though neither of us were jazzed about doing it at all, I dare say.
I didn't go Schitt's Creek crazy, so there was little chance of me winning, but good for that show for pretty much cleaning up - though their mask use at the show was horrible.
We attempted to watch the award show via text, but without great success. We both trailed off and not one of us mentioned it to the other.

Mike prevails: 5-3. Bragging rights are his only prize. (psssst....he does that even if there isn't a competition between us.)
I dare say - with the lack of movies this year, I don't know how our Oscar competition (our would-be 10th!) is going to go. As it turns out, Elizabeth Moss is a shoe-in for Best Actress from the never watched, the Invisible Man. Alas, there is no other competition for that category as of yet.
But I would hate for Covid to stamp upon our decade-long tradition. I guess we shall see.
