There used to be a time when these words were the words you heard before the envelope was opened at the Oscars:
"And the winner is . . . "
But now all that has changed.
There are no winners anymore.
No winners. No winners because there are no losers.
No losers because it's politically incorrect for someone to "lose" or be a "loser." It just ain't fair - not by today's compassion-soaked definition of "fairness."
So, no winners and no losers.
Just someone who happens to receive the Oscar.
And now it's announced like this:
"And the Oscar goes to . . . "
