The Iowa Caucus: A Profile in American Dumbassery

The Iowa Caucus: A Profile in American Dumbassery

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, in a cave or have been lost in the jungle and away from all forms of media (in which case I envy you so), you know the Iowa Caucuses were held last week. What should’ve been the first step toward thinning the literal herd (gaggle?) of Democrats running for POTUS against a common orange enemy turned into what political experts typically call, “a total fucking shitshow”. This doorknob hump of a voting event is a prime example of how American elections are flawed to such an extent that we’ve come to exist in a Twilight Zone-esque hellscape, held hostage by a super dumb minority. So what’s wrong and how can we fix it?I’m glad you asked! Let’s walk through this together!

FBC Oscar Coverage Part IX: Predicting The Winners, Part V

FBC Oscar Coverage Part IX: Predicting The Winners, Part V

Welcome back to my ever-extensive Oscar coverage. In the days leading up to the Oscars, I’ll be predicting every award, but focusing in-depth on what I call the “Big 8”. In my first two installments, I predicting the winners of the screenplay categories, the supporting actor categories, the lead acting categories. and all of the other categories. Also, if you want to hear the Fancy Boy Film Society’s top ten films of 2019, you can check it out on the Fancy Boys Club podcast.

Well, we’ve done it. We’ve finally gotten to the two big awards: Best Director and Best Picture. I’ve stared at this list and tried to put myself in the mind of a member of the Academy. And while these two categories are the ones I’m the least sure of, I’m ready to lock it in.

Let’s finish up these predictions.

Welcome back to my ever-extensive Oscar coverage.

We will not be covering Best Picture and Best Director today, mostly because I am stalling for time because I have no idea what I’m going to predict. So, now that my shame is out there and we can all deal with that as a team, I need a plan because I’m already two paragraphs in. So, in the meantime, let’s cover EVERY OTHER CATEGORY in the Oscars. As a note, I’m usually terrible at these, so it’s probably best to only kind of listen to me. Let’s get into it.

FBC Oscar Coverage, Part VII: Predicting The Winners, Part III

Welcome back to my ever-extensive Oscar coverage. In the days leading up to the Oscars, I’ll be predicting every award, but focusing in-depth on what I call the “Big 8”. In my first two installments, I predicting the winners of the screenplay categories and the supporting actor categories. Also, if you want to hear the Fancy Boy Film Society’s top ten films of 2019, you can check it out on the Fancy Boys Club podcast.

I feel like the acting categories are slam dunks this year. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t snubs to discuss. Also, I’m crazy terrible at predicting winners, so it’s quite possible that this is going to be a horrible quagmire.

That being said, let’s get to some leading predictions!

Welcome back to my ever-extensive Oscar coverage. In the days leading up to the Oscars, I’ll be predicting every award, but focusing in-depth on what I call the “Big 8”. In my last installment, I predicted the Best Original & Adapted Screenplay Oscars, and you can check that out here.

Let’s get back to the party and cover the supporting acting performances. I feel like these are the two slam dunk categories, based on all of the buzz plus who has won some of the other major awards (SAG, BAFTA, Golden Globes, etc.)

Let’s party, supporting style!
