The Oscars are Sunday, the Super Bowl for people who love movies. So with that in mind, we invited our friend Steve Mason into the studio for a Big Oscars Preview. We kicked around all the major topics. Who we think ought to win Best Picture and why, how much a film’s popularity with audiences ought to matter, the importance of staying power — will people remember “Get Out” or “The Shape of Water” more in 15 years? — the strange race for Best Director, and whether Steve buys into the Three Billboards backlash.
All that and more. Give it a listen, and get ready for Sunday.
