I tried watching the National TeIevision Awards, but a lot of it made me cringe, so I channel hopped a great deal.

As for the Oscar nominations, my main take out is that it's great Arrival got so many, but not Best Actress for Adams? I'm not the only one who thinks this is wrong. Yes, I do have to caveat it by saying I haven't seen all the nominated performances, although I hope to see most of them - a decision made because I want to see the films or not. Of the two that I've seen, I have no problems with Stone and Streep getting nominated, and even if there's a little voice that thinks that a certain speech and a certain tweet made the latter a cert (though Stone's the favourite to win, right?) what Streep did to produce Florence Foster Jenkins's terrible singing was a technical tour de force.

But, Amy Adams was outstanding in Arrival - its heart and soul. It's not a showy part, but the character carries the film. I did wonder if having that and Nocturnal Animals (which I didn't see) out in the same awards season hurt her.
