"This is my house, I have to defend it." — Kevin McCallister, Home Alone, 1990.
Twenty-eight years ago, Home Alone was nominated for the best original score.
Home Alone didn't win — Dances with Wolves did — but Macaulay Culkin, who played Kevin, redeemed the franchise and scored major points with Philly fans on the one-month anniversary of the Eagles' Super Bowl win.
Live-tweeting the 90th Academy Awards, Culkin took beef with this year's best original score, which was awarded to The Shape of Water.

Five-time NBA champion. Two-time NBA Finals MVP.
An NBA MVP. Eighteen All-Star Games. And … an Oscar?
Kobe Bryant's Dear Basketball on Sunday night won an Academy Award for the best animated short, a five-plus-minute film about his 2016 retirement from the NBA.
During his acceptance speech, Kobe addressed Fox News host Laura Ingraham's comments about LeBron and basketball players sticking to dribbling.
Dear Basketball was written and narrated by Kobe and directed by Glen Keane, a Philly native best known for his work on Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, The Litte Mermaid and other Disney movies.

One month ago today, the Eagles won the Super Bowl.
The underdog mask is a worldwide phenomenon.
Chris Long posted a picture on his Instagram of himself wearing the famous mask at the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro. Check out the personalized Eagles flag and caption as well ...
Long and his "Conquering Kili" crew, a team comprised of U.S. military veterans and current and former NFL players (including former Eagle Connor Barwin), climbed the mountain in Tanzania to raise awareness for Long's Waterboys initiative. The mission of Waterboys is to bring "life-sustaining well water to East African communities in need." This was the third time Long made the 19,000-plus-foot climb, which takes around six days to complete.
“The awareness for our cause, clean water in East Africa … this is our best platform," Long told Sports Illustrated's Peter King. "The world water crisis is huge, and it means so much to me that we’ve been able to raise enough money to build 32 wells in such desperate areas. We haven’t set a monetary goal this year, but if we could raise enough money for three or four wells [at $40,000 per well], that’s going to help so many people."
Here are Long and his team at the top of the mountain.
