a.k.a. "The Oscar Messenger"

Once again duplicating Sunday nights Golden Globes, Guillermo del Toro wins Best Director, “Big Little Lies” wins its TV categories, and so does “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.”

Kumail Nanjiani introduces this section reminding us that there was ONE difference from the GGs. His sweet, smart film “The Big Sick” won Best Comedy over “Lady Bird.” He didn’t phrase it like that, however, and graciously thanked the Critics. Nobody knows how hard we work.

Gary Oldman once again wins Best Actor for “Darkest Hour” for playing Winston Churchill. He slavishly thanks his director Joe Wright , who he forgot on Sunday night.

Frances McDormand ONCE AGAIN wins Best Actress in a Drama and she, like co-star Sam Rockwell, is NOT there to accept her award. But for sure, she’ll be there on Sunday night for the SAGs. You better believe it. They both will.Sam RockwellThey  are quickly becoming their own Awards juggernaut.

Three Bill Boards 10

So no, not everybody shows up for this show. How embarrassing.“Shape of Water” wins Best Film! Now THAT’S different. They all look shocked. They were  all there and they all piled onstage. Sally Hawkins and Octavia Spenser, too.

Guillermo  del Toro speaks and says “If You don’t work with these incredible women, Sally! Octavia! You don’t know what you’re missing!”

So this gives del Toro  a huge lift for Best Director. Maybe no one from “Three Billboards” was there, because they knew they weren’t winning at the end?

Biggest shock “Lady Bird” got NOTHING!?!?!?!? NOTHING!?!?

Ditto, also  nada for “The Post.”

Sooo    this a big wake-up call for “Lady Bird.” HMMMM….
