In this podcast series, Matt and Marisa go in the way-back machine to break down the the Best Picture winner and nominees as well as the major categories like Director, Actresses and Actors. They discuss the context in which the winners won, looking back on things should they have win and are they still award-worthy today. They also discuss the losers, the snubs and films, directors and performers they’d nominate.
