We now live in a world where people will say “Academy-Award Winning, Suicide Squad“. Just let that sink in for a moment.
Disney bring in 3 wins with The Jungle Book winning the award for Best Visual Effects, Zootopia for Best Animated Feature and Piper brought it home for Best Short Film (Animated).
Congratulations to all the winners (including Suicide Squad for their
participation trophy Academy Award).
Auli’i Cravalho had a wonderful performance at the Academy Awards singing ‘How Far I’ll Go’ from the Oscar-nominated film Moana. We have to give the assist to Lin-Manuel Miranda for the “original prologue” to setup the song!
Also, in case you were wondering how to pronounce her name, here is a video by USA Today with Dwayne Johnson learning to pronounce Auli’i Cravalho’s name.
Although we weren’t able to try the famous “Gray Stuff” or collect one of the collectible red rose cups, we did get a chance to try the Slow-cooked Beef Poutine (Slow-cooked beef and gravy over seasoned waffle-cut fries, pickled onions and cheese cruds, $10,99) and the Chicken Sandwich à la Lumière (Grilled chicken breast, apple slaw, onion-bacon jam, and fried cherry peppers on a toasted roll, served with pommes frites or sliced apples, $10.99).
The Slow-cooked Beef Poutine was tasty but there was very little gravy and topping on the fries. After a few bites you were basically left with dry waffle-cut fries so it would have been nice to get a bit more topping.
Chicken Sandwich à la Lumière was also very tasty but it really relied on eating it with the slaw and other additions otherwise the chicken was a bit bland (thankfully not dry). The one tip we could give about getting this sandwich is to make sure everything is spread out in the sandwich.
