: No doubt, this will be the weirdest Oscars ever, with stars not sure whether they should show up, whether they should save the flag (red, white, and blue or just white), whether they should look happy, or whether they should do their best to look smart and concerned (hey, they’re actors, they can pull it off).
The Guardian says they’ll all be in “gown-down” mode. So what is this, the mournful Oscars? What are we mourning for?
There have been disagreements over who’s coming. There have been lots of reports that Tom Hanks is not; I’ve seen one that says he is coming.
