“It was OK. I didn’t see all of the movies 
so I wasn’t
 too interested. I liked the song and dance numbers from the Oscars.” 

Enrique Hernandez, 

23rd and Federal streets





“I hate the Oscars. I think this country devotes too much time, money, energy and effort into glamourizing Hollywood. I boycott watching it.”

Kristan Puketza, 

Broad and Wolf streets





“I watched bits and pieces of it, basically the first 15 minutes. I wanted to see what Seth MacFarlane’s first time was going to be like. He made me laugh and he was funny, but I wouldn’t advise him to do it again.”

Adam Green, 

20th Street and 
Pattison Avenue 




“I thought Seth MacFarlane was eh. I didn’t care for him too much. Billy Crystal had been doing it for a while, and it is hard to stand up to him.”

Wayne Novak, 

16th and Bigler streets

Oscar predictions 2015

When the 2015 Oscar nominations were announced in January, the Academy, which just last year gave its top prize to the black-centric period drama “12 Years a Slave,” took a ton of flack for selecting a whitewashed roster of talent, snubbing “Selma” director Ava Duvernay and failing to nominate a single actor of color for the first time in two decades.
