All right, I while back I mentioned I was getting hooked on crosswords, in a big way. Now, the Sunday edition often takes me a week to work out. I thought it might be cool to work it over the Dope.
What did you get for 120A?

I don't have a copy of the paper, but I'd like to help out if I can. What's the clue & letter count? (And do you have any letters already filled in?)

IIRC, in other threads discussing the Sunday NYT crossword, we've found that some of us get the puzzle from papers that are a week behind what New York and other cities get. Maybe it would be an idea to post the puzzle title so there's no confusion.

I get the Sunday puzzle in a supplement weeks later, but I would participate.

My Sunday Times puzzle I am about to start is "Political Leaders". It has no 120 across.

It is now a week later, and today my paper carries the NYT Sunday Crossword that, I assume, appeared last week in the NYT, since it's an Oscar-themed crossword.
Since those "masturbatory 'I am so smart'" threads get so much flak, I won't tell you how long it took me to solve, just that this was one of my quicker ones. It's a fairly easy puzzle if you have some knowledge in the area of the theme.
For 120A I got SPASMS
