Hi Bacchus,

As former Oscars host Billy Crystal observed: “Nothing can take the sting off the world's economic problems like watching millionaires present each other golden statues.”

And nothing can take the sting off indulgent acceptance speeches like sipping great wine as we watch the 2016 Academy Awards next Sunday.
