Outrage

Post by Nibs »

Shnoodles is outraged about the 4 categories picked to be during commercials this year!

https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/ ... S-U5ISAptI

"The affected categories are cinematography, film editing, live-action short and makeup and hairstyling."

Bears are in disbelief!

Steamed Shnoods!

Post by Shnoodles »

Hey you Nibs guy,

That is outrageous! I really am outraged! How can the Academy do this? It just makes me so upset! Arghhhh!

On a happier note - Lee and I Shnooded yesterday and I think it went pretty well. Lee went with Roma for her top 3 choices so she obviously has a good feeling about that movie.

We will see how it all plays out on February 24th!

The other day we sat down with Shnoodles to figure out what the last 13 years of Oscar Shnoods look like.

Turns out that Shnoodles has been on an 8 year win-streak (possibly 10 but the scrolls are missing).

That is longer than even a MiniNibs mini streak*!

Lee is glad to know she once won one. And Duddles is pleased he once tied for first! And many times beat Lee.

Will this be the year Shnoodles' streak is laid to rest**?

Anyway, posting a link to the stats here for posterity: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... 1893760909


* JK, MiniNibs has much longer winning streaks
** Probably not cause Lee picked Black Panther for Best Picture, snarf!

The Academy just REVERSED THEIR DECISION and are now going to show all the Oscars live on the air.

The power of internet outrage these days!

Flip the script

Wow - thanks for your constant vigilance Nibs!

It's good that the Oscars saw the outrage on Schlop's forums and reversed course. If only we could have more luck with our crusade to get Paddington on the stage...

T-minus 2 days

Hey you Shnood viewers,

The clock is ticking closer and closer to the big show!

I still can't believe they are going hostless. Yesterday I had a dream that Paddington hosted the show and fired marmalade sandwiches into the audience. Do you think that could really happen?

Post by Shnoodles »

Hey you Shnood-watchers,

I can't believe the big day is finally here! All the stars are probably busy getting dressed as we type.

But now it is time for me to put on the Sensory Deprivator 5000 so I don't get spoiled!

I will catch you guys on the flip side!

Most Bunnies in a Leading Cape

Post by Nibs »

My goodness!!

Well well well. It's been such a big year for bears and bunnies on film! So it seems fitting that it all culminated in STUFFED BUNNIES being FEATURED so prominently at the Academy Awards!!!

First can we marvel and the number of bunnies who showed up!
Initial counts are coming in at around 50 bunnies!
https://cl.ly/6114f82ce784

FIFTY BUNNIES WERE ON STAGE AT THE ACADEMY AWARDS!!!!!

And of course one very animated Bunny who stole the show:

Here is he is waving:
https://cl.ly/6eacfead96a2

He also OPENED THE ENVELOPE although we don't yet have pictures of that!

This was the highest point for stuffies at the Oscars in the history of the Oscars and I'm so glad we were covering the whole season and ready for it!!!!

I'm equally proud of my post in the Bunny Spotting thread that foreshadowed this occurrence!

If only Melissa McCarthy had been wearing bunny slippers!!! :)

Hoo hoo!

So many bunnies!

Hugh said if there was a bunny that I like please let him know - so I circled the bunny I like the most!

I hope I get that bunny in my gift bag when I go!

Bunn-apalooza!

Post by Shnoodles »

Wow this bunny dress really has taken the Schlop site by storm!

I hope in 10 years we will get to read an oral history of how the bunny dress was made.

Personally I like the bunny on the hat

Cool!

Hey you hostless guys,

https://www.vox.com/culture/2020/1/13/2 ... -full-list

Will Ash's fav movie (Missing Sneech) win?

Why did Nbs' fav movie (Frozen 2) not get nominated for best animated film?

Can Bad Astra win Sound Editing thanks to Tommy Lee Schlop's spaceship noises?

Will ScarJo win a best supporting actress and best actress in the same show?

Will Melissa McCarthy wear a bunny dress in honor of JoJo Rabbit?

Tune in on February 9th to find out!

Shnood intensifies!

Post by Shnoodles »

Hey you Schloppywood guys,

Word on the bed is that Nibs is scheming to uncover some secret Shnood intel for Lee by sneaking into a showing of all the animated short movies - without even paying! This is a category that is notoriously hard to pick which means Duddles usually cleans up in it. It shows Lee is really taking the Shnood seriously this year and will stop at nothing to win!

To Lee I say - Bring It On!
In the SHNOOD!
