So here's what I'm wondering...

Post by ChipznBeer » Sun Feb 26, 2017 10:46 am

Last week the USA had Presidents' Day off on the Monday and most of Canada had Family Day off on the Monday.
And that meant we could all stay up late on the Sunday as we would have the choice of sleeping in the next day.
So why didn't they switch the date and celebrate the Academy Awards last Sunday night instead of tonight?
Now, as usual, they will run late, everyone will get to bed late (or in my case fall asleep trying to watch it, missing the most important awards ;)) and in turn will get up grumpy tomorrow due to a lack of sleep, or sleep in and be late for work.
(for those that watch the Oscars that is)

dunno why, frankly. Not one to watch that crap but apparently missed a rather major mess-up in voting results.

Family Day in Canada has only been around for a decade. And I really don't think the Merricans take it into account anyhow.
And having the Oscars on a Sunday night is really no different than having Sunday and Monday night football.

I also heard that the Merricans had to cancel their version of Family Day because folks from the south thought it was a day off for them to stay home and have a gang bang.

that's pretty much a weekend thing around here, too, Res. ;)

Oh, and I'm pretty sure the Acadamy doesn't consider Canadians at all when planning anything past tax breaks for filming there.

Well problem solved....sort of.
Sunday I PVR'd it but still watched the first hour live, then went to sleep.
On Monday night I watched the rest of it, of course I fell asleep doing so.....lol
