The Weekend Desk Report

Geez, if you want to see some frozen shit just wait a couple of weeks.

Market Update
For some context, $1 billion spread across half a million people works out to $2,000 per head. Don't spend it all in one place, especially not Walmart.

Oscars Edition!
Hollywood's big night is this Sunday. Let's take a look at the contenders for the marquee categories.

Best Actor in a Leading Role
Will it be: the troubled millionaire, the unconventional man being legislated out of existence, the free thinker facing terrible odds, the dead-eyed sniper or, you know, that guy?

Best Actress in a Leading Role
Could it be the one no one supports, the one who won't stop running, the long-suffering partner, the one who's losing it or the dangerous fraud?

Best Actor in a Supporting Role
Really, this comes down to a choice between the fading champ or the imperious educator.

Best Actress in a Supporting Role
Would it surprise anyone if somebody's useless daughter won again?

Best Picture
It definitely won't be anybody's Theory of Everything, unless you really want to fuck with Boyhood.
