After a long awards season, Oscars weekend is finally upon us. The big show is on Sunday. Hopefully you’ve read all the coverage of the nominations and tuned into the awards season controversies. But, if, like me, you still need a quick refresher on everything that’s going on — or if you want to study up for your party ballot — The Times’s movies editor, Stephanie Goodman, has us covered:
I’ve been editing Oscar coverage for longer than I care to admit, and this has been one of the strangest awards seasons I can remember, mainly thanks to the inexplicable moves of the motion picture academy.
It introduced a “popular” film Oscar, only to drop that award less than a month later. It announced a host, Kevin Hart, only to drop that idea a few days later. And to shorten the telecast, it tried a number of measures, including cutting song performances and shifting some categories to commercial breaks, only to drop those plans. (It’s useful to remember that the telecast earns millions of dollars for the academy and ABC, and that it has been shedding viewers in recent years. The thinking is that a tighter ceremony will equal more eyeballs.)
The upshot of all these reversals is that no one knows what to expect on Sunday. But we’ve got some intel.
• Our Oscars expert, the Carpetbagger columnist Kyle Buchanan, has a good idea of who the winners will be. Read his predictions and use them to fill out your Oscar ballot.
• Our reporter Brooks Barnes spoke with the show’s producers about their efforts to shorten the telecast.
• If you think the Academy Awards have gotten more political, you’re right. Here’s why.

• “The Trump administration has infused the entire legal immigration system with skepticism, but naturalization should be different: These people are already here legally.” Wait times to become a citizen have doubled in the last two years. And the process could become even more onerous. [The New York Times]

• Willie McCoy, the 20-year-old who was killed by police officers in a Vallejo Taco Bell drive-through, was so riddled with bullets that it was hard to tell how many times he had been shot, a lawyer for his family said. The police said he reached for a gun in his lap when they approached him. [The New York Times]
• After a worker walkout over the way Google handled sexual harassment claims, the company said it would no longer force employees to settle disputes in private arbitration. [The New York Times]
• Did you hear about how it snowed in Los Angeles County yesterday? No? Well, everyone from Malibu to Pasadena lost. Their. Minds. [The Los Angeles Times]
• “You can’t say, ‘This is what Ohlone people were like,’ if you’re tasting food in your mouth at that moment.” At Berkeley’s Café Ohlone by Mak-’amham, indigenous chefs live and share their culture. As a result, they’re preserving it. [Civil Eats]
• A husky puppy named Balto that was allowed, against experts’ advice, into a lab. Security guards and meetings with filmmakers. Here’s a look at Elizabeth Holmes’s last days at Theranos. [Vanity Fair]
• Yesterday, we had some recommendations for checking out wildflowers — but they were definitely more accessible to Southland residents. So here’s a list of hikes that are likely to be blooming in the Bay. [TimeOut San Francisco]Weekend reads
• Nannies, housekeepers and other domestic workers have some of the nation’s hardest and least secure jobs. Now, in the midst of a cultural moment fueled in part by the film “Roma,” they’re organizing to change that. [The New York Times Magazine]
• An oral history of the Sea Ranch, a bucolic planned community on the coast between Bodega Bay and Mendocino where questions about coastal access, private development and inclusivity, and design played out decades ago. [Curbed]And Finally …
For a night in watching a marathon of an awards show, Tejal Rao, our California restaurant critic, recommends a nice, unfussy cocktail. Here’s a couple she has in mind:
The eternally wise writer Rosie Schaap has a recipe for what she calls a “lazy old-fashioned” which is, I believe, a supremely chill drink to set up for a watching party. No tools required. No prep. Just clear off some space on the counter for a bottle of bourbon, a bottle of Angostura bitters and a bowl of brown sugar. Now make sure your freezer is absolutely full of newish, good-smelling ice. Every time a drink is required, plop a teaspoon of sugar at the bottom of a glass, soak it with a few dashes of bitters, then add a good amount of ice and pour over two ounces of bourbon. That’s it!
And if you prefer something a bit lighter in alcohol — it’s a loooong awards show, after all, and all those commercial breaks will add up to quite a few drinks — I highly recommend sweet vermouth and seltzer on ice with a dash of bitters on top.
