It’s no secret that the Academy tends to gravitate toward certain types of motion pictures when it comes to handing out their coveted awards. This year’s batch of nominees doesn’t really buck that trend, featuring period pieces set in 1950s New York, stories ripped from the headlines that still apply to today, adaptations of well-regarded recent novels, and of course a dystopian, feminist thrill ride revival of an Australian franchise. Well, if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em, I say. This week it’s best picture or bust as we pitch the ultimate Oscar bait and try to have some fun doing it. Give her a listen!
