Rothman's Oscar Picks, Part Two of Six.

Best Supporting actor:

Mahershala Ali, “Moonlight”--Was unaffected by the movie, thus the performance. 

Jeff Bridges, “Hell or High Water”---One of those lifetime achievement awards.  I like voting for those, especially if I love the performance, which I did.

Lucas Hedges, “Manchester by the Sea”---Really good, but no real body of work.   Way too young.
Needs more of a resume.

Dev Patel, “Lion”---If anything, this should have been in the Best Actor Category.  But it didn't belong there either.

Michael Shannon, “Nocturnal Animals"---Made about 12 movies last year, and was great in all of them.  I can't get enough of him."Nocturnal Animals is probably his best so far.

The Winner---Jeff Bridges.  Shannon will probably make 12 more movies this year.  His time will come.


My books, "Show Runner" and it's sequel, "Show Runner Two", can be found at the Amazon Kindle Store.
Along with the newer ones, "The Man Is Dead", and "Report Cards".
They are all compilations of blog entries that have since been removed from the blog.
So this is the only way you can find them.
You can search by typing in my name, Cindy Williams, Laverne and Shirley, The Odd Couple, or Happy Days.
Check them out.
You don't need a Kindle machine to download them.
Just get the free app from Kindle, and they can be downloaded to an IPhone, IPad, or Blackberry.
The paperbacks, "Mark Rothman's Essays" and my new novel, "I'm Not Garbo" are not e-books.
But they are available for people without Kindle.
I have many readings and signings lined up for those, and the thing about Kindle is you can't sign one.
If you'd like one of the paperbacks, personally autographed, contact me at
And now, we've got my reading of my "Laverne and Shirley Movie" screenplay on YouTube.

About Me

Hi. I am, according to my Wikipedia entry,(which I did not create) a noted television writer, playwright, screenwriter, and occasional actor. You can Google me or go to the IMDB to get my credits, and you can come here to get my opinions on things, which I'll try to express eloquently. Hopefully I'll succeed. You can also e-mail me at Perhaps my biggest claim to fame is being responsible, for about six months in 1975, while Head Writer for the "Happy Days" TV series, for Americans saying to each other "Sit on it."
