Thursday Open Thread

Update: Harrison Ford's son says he's battered from the plane crash but but will be alright. We're sending good thoughts his way.

Syria killed the top leaders of Jabhat al-Nusra today in a drone attack in Idlib. Among those killed: Military commander Abu Humam al-Shami. Reports say others killed include Abu Musab al-Palestinian, Abu Omar al-Kurdi, and Abu Bara al-Ansari. While locals said the U.S. launched the strikes, the U.S. said it hasn't struck Idlib in the past 24 hours. The attacks may be retaliation for yesterday's bombing of the Syrian Air Defense intelligence headquarters. But Al Nusrah says leader al-Shami was killed in Idlib on Feb. 27, so the U.S. denials about today don't matter.

The Oscars

The Oscars are about to begin. Here's a thread to discuss. Neil Patrick Harris is hosting. The red carpet hosts were unwatchable, where do they find these people? Even Robin Roberts is way too over-animated and seems phony.I hope the show is better.

Best Picture:

  • American Sniper
  • Birdman
  • Boyhood
  • The Grand Budapest Hotel
  • The Imitation Game
  • Selma
  • The Theory of Everything
  • Whiplash
