OscarWatch Podcast

Join hosts Amy Thomasson and Steve Buja as they take a look back at the very small number of films to have been named the Academy Awards' Best Picture and ask the important question: did it deserve to win? We'll take a look at the other contenders, the politics of awards season, the world events that shaped the year, and of course, reviewing the big winner and how it has withstood the test of time. Hopefully while having a spirited conversation that will, in some cases, be more entertaining than the movie! OscarWatch: truly determining the best of the Best.
