SPECIAL: 2019 Oscars Finale
So THAT happened.
We watched the Oscars, and everything was going so well. There were some awesome wins for Black Panther’s design, a best short documentary win for a movie about menstrual rights, and the first Academy Award for Spike Lee. There were some great song performances and, hey, maybe a hostless Oscars is actually pretty great! And then Green Book won Best Picture. And that was the moment the Academy Awards left us with. 2018 was a fantastic year in movies, and the fact that Green Book gets to stand atop the podium does not do justice to the amazing stories that were told this year. But we’re not here just to rage about the result - we want to look at the positives as well. So enjoy this final special of our 2nd season where we talk about the Oscars, how our picks fared, and a sneak preview of what’s coming up when we return in April. See you in a month!
