My 11th Annual Oscars Picks and Wishes, 2016 edition for the 2015 movies
This Sunday night is when they will televise the Oscars. Once again, i did my job as a movie geek, and saw all 8 the Best Picture nominees. Here's how it will go, i'll say an Oscar category, who's nominated, how many i saw, then, who i think SHOULD win, and who i think WILL win. This is just for fun and maybe i will do a recap and see how good i really am at picking the winners..

Of the 24 different Oscar categories, i only deal with the serious 8 categories (4 acting, 2 writing, best director, best picture). Who cares about best sound mixing, or sound editing, (although i did read an article today explaining the difference. "Mad Max Fury Road" for sound editing, and "Star Wars" for sound mixing) or best costume, or best documentary--short subject? But i'll also throw in a couple guesses for fun. But i always keep the best picture pick and wish for the very end. So, lets knock this out.

I should say that unlike last year, or previous years, this was a GREAT year for movies. Maybe it was because I went to a lot more than usual, but really, it was because I saw a lot more great movies. Last year, i only saw one movie worthy of 4-stars, and that was "Whiplash". This year, i saw 7 or 8 that were 4-star movies, and some of those just happen to be nominated for Best Picture. So, despite what Chris Rock will joke about this Sunday about the Oscars being so white, it was a very good year for movies. Now, let's knock out some nominations.

BEST ACTOR

Bryan Cranston, Trumbo
Matt Damon, The Martian
Leonardo DiCaprio, The Revenant
Michael Fassbender, Steve Jobs
Eddie Redmayne, The Danish Girl

Never saw "Steve Jobs" or "The Danish Girl"

Should win--(not nominated, but Jacob Tremblay for "Room")
Will win--Leonardo DiCaprio, The Revenant

You get raped and mauled by a bear, and i believed it. Good job Leo, you get the Oscar.

BEST ACTRESS

Cate Blanchett, Carol
Brie Larson, Room
Jennifer Lawrence, Joy
Charlotte Rampling, 45 Years
Saoirse Ronan, Brooklyn

Never saw "45 Years"

Should win--Brie Larson, Room
Will win--Brie Larson, Room

Great performance, great movie, this is a total LOCK. SHE WILL WIN.

Christian Bale, The Big Short
Tom Hardy, The Revenant
Mark Ruffalo, Spotlight
Mark Rylance, Bridge of Spies
Sylvester Stallone, Creed

Saw all nominees

Should win--(not nominated, but Jacob Tremblay for "Room")
Will win--Sylvester Stallone, Creed

"Rocky" won Best Picture of 1976, it's only fair that 40 years later, the creator wins himself an Oscar for the character he created. But really, it should be the kid in "Room" that should be nominated... It was the biggest Oscar snub of the year. That kid's performance will last forever. I already forgot what the others did in this category.

BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS

Jennifer Jason Leigh, The Hateful Eight
Rooney Mara, Carol
Rachel McAdams, Spotlight
Alicia Vikander, The Danish Girl
Kate Winslet, Steve Jobs

Once again, did not see "Steve Jobs" or "The Danish Girl"

Should win--Jennifer Jason Leigh, The Hateful Eight
Will win--Rooney Mara, Carol

I don't really have a strong opinion on this one. I will say, it's a shame Alicia Vikander did not get nominated for her amazing performance in "Ex Machina".

DIRECTING

Adam McKay - The Big Short
George Miller - Mad Max: Fury Road
Alejandro G. Iñárritu - The Revenant
Lenny Abrahamson - Room
Tom McCarthy - Spotlight

Saw all nominees

Should win--Lenny Abrahamson - Room
Will win--Alejandro G. Iñárritu - The Revenant

Don't feel too strong about this one; this category has the true potential for an upset as you can easily make the case for everyone. Maybe a lifetime achievement award to George Miller, or Tom McCarthy get's it for having so many A-List actors in his movie, or McKay for breaking the fourth wall (Director's choice) throughout The Big Short. Tough call.

ADAPTED SCREENPLAY

The Big Short
Brooklyn
Carol
The Martian
Room

Saw all nominees

Should win--Room
Will win--Room

ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY

Bridge of Spies
Ex Machina
Inside Out
Spotlight
Straight Outta Compton

Saw all nominees

Should win--Ex Machina
Will Win--Inside Out

I hate that 3 of the 5 movies under original screenplay are actually true stories. They need a new category for this issue. I want true originals, not biopics or based on true stories.

A few quick hit thoughts on other categories:

Original Score--The Hateful Eight
Visual Effects--Star Wars: The Force Awakens
Foreign Language Film--Son of Saul (never saw it)
Animated Featured Film--Inside Out

BEST PICTURE

The Big Short
Bridge of Spies
Brooklyn
Mad Max: Fury Road
The Martian
The Revenant
Room
Spotlight

Saw all nominees

Should win--Room
Will win--The Revenant

So I was not lying when i said 2015 was a great year for movies. Of these 8 movies nominated, The Big Short, Mad Max: Fury Road, Room, and Spotlight were to me all 4-star movies. The Revenant got 3 1/2 stars for dragging and that mystical bullshit about Leo's wife. Bridge of Spies, Brooklyn, and The Martian were entertaining 3-star movies. If I had my way I would have chucked those three out and replaced them with the far superior movies Inside Out, Ex Machina, and Straight Outta Compton. But this is the Oscars and things will never be perfect with so many old ass voters who don't see all the movies and a joke of a voting tabulation. Upsets happen at the Oscars because the system is fucked up and maybe we should wait a few years, see who is still watching these movies, and then hand out the best picture.

I am just happy that a bad movie is not nominated for Best Picture. There is no "Les Miserables" this year. Nor did i have to sit through a movie like "The Danish Girl". I recommend all of the movies this year up for Best Picture. If you are reading this and have not seen some of these movies, force yourself to spend a couple of hours and be entertained. You'll be a better person because of it.

Brian's Big Thought of the Day:

I think Great Movies can make us become Great People.

5th Annual Andrews Brothers Thanksgiving Picks
A few basic rules about these picks:

-THANKSGIVING DAY ONLY
(Does not count to season point total)

-Losers pay off $30 to winner.

-Most points win (7 points would be highest score).

-In case of a tie, Best POTW win gets the money.
(Example--two people are tied at 5 points each, but have different POTW.
If someone's POTW covers by 4 points, and the other covers by 10,
the person whose POTW that covered by 10 win).

-Because we all have different POTW, there are no extra tie-breakers.

-Good luck to all and Happy Thanksgiving!

It was a very difficult week. Many upsets.
Patriots stay perfect by beating the always tough New York Giants by 1 point with 1 second left.
The Packers get destroyed by the Lions at home for the first time since 1991.
Peyton Manning went 5 for 20 with 4 interceptions, and a QB Rating of 0.0
The once perfect Bengals can't score on the pathetic Houston Texans at their own home, on Monday Night Football.

I had to pick the Bengals and not go perfect.
Paul managed to go perfect.

Results for week 9, 2015 Season NFL Picks
On the week we were going to Foxboro to watch the Pats kick the crap out of the Redskins, with John flying up from North Carolina, something horrible happened. We were unable to get tickets through Paul's system, and there was no way in hell I was going to spend around $400 for a semi decent seat through a Stub Hub or Ace Ticket website. I can't justify spending more money on one Pats game then I did for my entire cruise.

But because we were all together, and we did prepare for a tailgate, we ended up just going to Paul's where we drank and drank and drank, and also had some food. It gave us a chance to root for the Pats, me root against Paul and John's pick (Vikings beat their Rams), and of course watch as all three of our picks (Broncos over Indy) lose big time, proving when we all agree, an upset victory will always happen. I think we're 1-7 when all three of us have the same pick.

Despite not going to the football game though, I was finally able to enjoy taking home some of my year to date winnings. Bonus money for going perfect a couple of times this year, plus a few head to head wins. After getting paid off, there was still another game left, the Sunday nighter where Dallas hosted the Philadelphia Eagles. I picked Philly, John took the Cowboys. Another $10 bet would occur, but I was already back home by the time that game was over.

Andrews Brothers Football Picks, 2015 Season, Week 9
We were all gonna go to the Patriots game today. And I don't think we were able to get tickets. I helped out in trying to find some tickets and I never knew how hard it was to pull this off. Maybe in other years people didn't care. But this year, a "revenge" year, a chance to go perfect or maybe beat the Redskins by about fifty points, everyone wants to go to this game. Secondary ticket websites were charging $200 per ticket in the worst sections, and $600 per ticket in actual good seats. Not like a suite or anything, just a ticket in the 100's section. Thankfully I did not over due it getting tailgating food, but I'm not sure if we're going to Foxboro or not today.

But hey, another cut and paste of all of our picks, but before that, A couple of things to note: Me and Paul already won our Thursday Night football pick (we submitted on Thursday afternoon, John submitted yesterday); we all picked Denver to win (typically all 3 of us agree, we are all wrong); and some $10 side action between me and John for the Sunday night game. Fun stuff all over the place.

The Cruise to Bermuda (Part I)
Look everyone (especially Paul), this is me typing something that is completely original. No cut and paste jobs here. If you have been coming to Who Gives A Shit.com for the past year expecting something to read, well I am parking my ass down and writing for a bit. The topic, just in case you don't enjoy reading the subject headline, is my cruise to Bermuda that I took with my brother Michael (who I shared my cabin with), and also my brother Paul and his wife Christie.

If you weren't fully aware, I'm a total degenerate gambler and because of that, Foxwoods Casino likes to reward me with free hotel room, free tickets to show, free gifts, and yes, the occasional free cruise. Trust me, there's a hell of an asterisk next to that word "free" in free cruise. No matter what, you have to pay port fees and taxes for both yourself and the person you are taking along on the cruise. That's about $350 per person right there. The other thing is, on the cruise ship, they don't want people handing out tips. But there are probably hundreds of people behind the scenes (waiters, cooks, cleaners, and crew people making the boat properly go to and fro without getting into trouble with those damn Somalia pirates) and those people all get paid a little something for there efforts. When the cruise is over, there is a $13.50 forced gratuity on the bill, per person, per day, amounting to almost another hundred bucks to your free cruise. A free cruise is basically $450 per person, or $900 for the cabin.

And what a cabin. Almost 60 square feet that fits you and your cabin partner with two twin beds, your luggage, and an additional 20 square feet for a bathroom. If you had a fear of drowning, big ships, or being sea sick, those are offset by the almost instant claustrophobia. Good news, there is a TV, and it has CNN, BBC, Fox News, MSNBC, and ESPN, with 24/7 soccer, cricket, and other sports everyone but the United States likes to watch. Thankfully there is basically a free pay per view movie channel that plays all the new DVD releases. I was able to watch "Inside Out" about 4 times, "Pitch Perfect 2" about 5 times, "Max", a kids movie about a dog about 3 times, and then there are the random ones. "Mr. Holmes", "The 100-Foot Journey", "St. Vincent", and others I'm blanking on. Keep in mind, you don't actually watch these movies start to finish, that would be weird. It's just something to have on in the background.

Simply because this is a Part I of a no more than Part VII story, I might as well begin on the very first day of the cruise.

Actually, no, let me go back even further, to January or so, when we purchased and confirmed the cruise. The free cruise through Foxwoods did allow me and another guest a room. But they would also give anyone else on this deal 10% off if they joined the cruise with it. Of the different friends and family we asked if they wanted to go, only Paul and Christie wanted to cruise like a Norwegian on the Norwegian Dawn from Boston to Bermuda.

Paul and Christie, for ordering their tickets to the cruise so early (it literally was January, and we were settling for an October cruise departure), they got a sweet ass deal. Instead of the 10% off, they used that to upgrade to a balcony room. Me and Mike had an inside cabin with no natural light. My office was bigger than our room. Hell, most cubicles are bigger than me and Mike's room. Also, by ordering so soon, the people at Norwegian Cruise Line (or NCL as they'll be called from now on) gave them some free options. $250 of on board credit, free meals (meals are free, but they could eat at the specialty restaurants every night and for free), or the Ultimate Beverage Package.

I was actually on the phone with Paul and the woman from NCL and I told Paul to get the Ultimate Beverage Package. This package is basically worth $850, and it allows you and your cabin-mate to drink all the beer and mixed drinks you want without paying ANYTHING. Just no drinks over $15 and no sharing the free drink card with other guests. As for me, I'm a cheap prick, but I do love free drinks. Thankfully because Foxwoods gave me the free cruise, me and Mike's room came with free drink in the casino cards. Anytime we wanted to, we could just gamble and have free drinks all day long. Or, for me one day, just literally sit at the bar in the casino and get totally shit faced and make friends with an older couple who I kept bumping into the rest of the cruise. God it was weird, they knew my name, I had no clue who they were. All I could do is smile and wave at them...

Got lost there for a moment. Time to move ahead to the actual first day of the cruise.


Friday, October 16th DAY 1:
----------------------------

Mike, Paul & Christie all took that day off from work. Not me, I'm very paranoid about leaving work too early, and I can still get a lot of work done in a few hours. I typically work from 6:30 AM to 3:00 PM. On this day, I showed up around 5:30 AM and knew I could post that morning's inventory, take care of yesterday's settlement, pay for any bills that showed up, clear up any open emails, take care of some invoices, do a few credits, and make sure there was enough back up paperwork for things my coworkers need around the warehouse. I was able to knock all of this crap out and punch out around 10:30 AM. Five hours extra to my paycheck, and very satisfied that I left my office in good enough hands. (It would take over a week to learn that later on that night, the printer to my office stopped working, and was unable to get fixed and back in working condition until the Wednesday of me being back at work. I take a vacation, and there was literally 10 days worth of paperwork sitting there, just waiting for me.)

I happily drove home, and starting to gather up all of my gear. Made sure my bags were packed, had my e-docs, my passport, some reading material, and some motion sickness medication. I don't fuck around with motion sickness. I call my doctor and get a prescription for the patch (you're welcome, Mike!) behind my ear, and I also take some over the counter Dramamine. Me and Mike were all set, and were just waiting for mom to pick us up and drive us to the actual boat in Boston's port. To relax my nerves, me and Mike had a few mixed drinks from my left over vodka. Why did I have left over vodka? Because I'm a borderline alcoholic (you guys remember the 4th of July) and I'm cheap. So I do the mouthwash trick.

WARNING--IT IS ILLEGAL TO BRING ANY ALCOHOL OR DRUGS ONTO A CRUISE SHIP. Some cruise ships allow some bottles of alcohol to be brought on board (wine) but they charge like $50 for a bottle opening charge. I have a bag with all of my toiletries (toothbrush, toothpaste, razor, shaving cream, soap, and yes, a bottle of mouthwash) stuffed in the bottom of one of my bags. The bag gets x-rayed, and delivered to my room, and no one has opened the bag of toiletries yet. I can tell, I put a weird knot on that plastic bag so nothing moves.

The mouthwash trick was something I invented 3 years ago when I went on a cruise (I've now done the same cruise 4 years in a row. Last year was different in that due to a Hurricane, we skipped Bermuda and went to the Bahamas. That was my favorite cruise of the first three, and even cooler, I went with Justi instead of Mike. She was fun.) to save me money from buying drinks on the ship. It's very simple: you buy a big bottle of mouthwash (I found a 1.5 Liter of Equate mouthwash at Wal-Mart for $2.79) and empty it. Clean the insides and wash it out so it doesn't taste like minty freshness. Pour in a shitload of vodka, and a few drops of a Gatorade to get the right color of mouthwash. I went with Gatorade Fierce Green Apple as it had the same green hue as the bottle of mouthwash. Then, anytime you want to get drunk, you just take your water bottle container (I purchase mine last year for this trick) and fill it up with ice and something to mix your booze with.

I found lemonade to be a great mixer, and combine the ice, lemonade, and mouthwash for a great way to get shit faced on the cruise without having to pay additional costs. Easily saves me a few hundred on drinks. Best, I can just go out on the deck, walk around, eat some food, read my book, and take sips from my big water bottle container and no one is the wiser. When my water bottle container is empty, I do not refill. Instead I stay happily buzzed for the rest of that day.

Where was I... Oh yeah, me and Mike are drinking at the house waiting for mom to pick us up and drive us into Boston. Mom is the best at this, and has also done this for all four times I've gone on my cruise. You are the greatest mom in the world. I try my best to make up for it, and that is why two days after our cruise ended, I happily drove mom to Logan Airport so she could fly down to Florida for this month. See you for Thanksgiving mom!

Security and passport check ins are not a pain in the ass like they used to be. 3 years ago, it took almost an hour from mom dropping us off to being on the ship. This year, drop off to being on the ship was just under a half an hour.

It was a very windy day, but nice. Me and Mike took our carrying on bags to our room (11652) and then walked on the top deck to find Paul and Christie. We found them, sipping on some drinks and looking very happy. Me and Mike left our house around noon, took one hour to get to Boston, some time for security, more time of walking to our room and then more time to find Paul and Christie. When we found them, it was about 2:00 PM. Paul and Christie had been on the boat since about 10:30 AM.

They showed us their room, we showed them ours, and they decided that will be the last time they step into our room. We decided to grab some food and drink at the 24/7 restaurant (The Blue Lagoon, really great chips with the spinach and cheese) before we would be forced to go to the mandatory emergency evacuation drill. Everyone on their room key card has a special number that indicated where to go in case the boat starts to go all Titanic. Ours was Y3. It just shows this is the life boat, how to put on a life vest, how women and children are not all that important, etc. Only reason to go is because you need your named marked off the list. If you don't, they fine you on your bill. I'm there, Mike eventually shows up, and after going almost deaf from the loud horns (ya know, in case of an emergency), we're free to go and enjoy our cruise.

And with that, let me stop.

I know this has been almost all filler, but I got better things to look out for including gambling success (not me), lots of food and alcohol consumption (everyone), trivia contests, stories of past cruises with a crazy ex (Mike), the Island of Bermuda, Patriots on Sunday night Football, and a game of dodgeball.

All of this and more later on this week.

Brian's Big Thought of the Day:

I think one of my big cruise ship regrets was not stealing the picture of me and the dolphin.

Results for week 8, 2015 Season NFL Picks
A few minutes after I posted our picks, Paul and John called me up.
They decided they didn't want to have all the same picks.
So they changed the line on the New Orleans Saints vs. NY Giants game.
Instead of New Orleans -3.5 (both took the Giants at +3.5), they changed the line to 2.5
John would took New Orleans -2.5, Paul would still take the Giants but at +2.5
That game would have 14 combined touchdowns, but come down to one field goal for the win.
And for Paul, a crushing lost.

For me, I know what that's like. I won my first two games, and then a push on my last.
A PUSH IS NOT A WIN, and because of that, I did not go perfect, and did no win bonus money.
