Awards Radar Podcast #31: Oscar Night Post-Mortem with Joey, Myles, Ryan, and Steve

Welcome back to the Awards Radar Podcast. In each episode, Editor Joey Magidson (that’s me!) will be joined by some of the staff of Awards Radar to talk about the latest in film, television, and entertainment in general. The show will obviously have an awards season slant to it, but we won’t forget about other movies and shows, that’s for sure!

For episode number thirty one (if you can believe it), I was joined once again by podcast regulars Myles Hughes and Steven Prusakowski, along with our pseudo regular Ryan McQuade. This time around, we focus exclusive on the Academy Award telecast, including both the good and bad. Frankly, there was more of the latter than the former, but such is this particular Oscar ceremony. Listen for the hottest of takes within…

Oscar is in the books, so listen to our thoughts. Here we go, my friends and ever faithful readers, I hope you all enjoy the latest episode of the Awards Radar Podcast, our thirty-first one to date. As always, feel free to revisit the previous installments by clicking the Podcast tab (here) on the top of the page. Plus, listen to us on Apple Podcasts (iTunes), Spotify, and other platforms. More to come each and every single week, including year in advance predictions coming soon, so thank you for listening!

  1. Films were accessible this year, but not everyone can afford to subscribe to every streaming service or rent every movie on demand for $20. So the Oscars would have been a good showcase to show which movies one might like to spend their money on vs. others, especially, as noted, trailers were farther and fewer between.

    I’ve never been to a Broadway play or musical, but I love watching The Tony’s every year because it is so entertaining. The Oscars could take a page out their book if they want to entertain people. I also would love if they did more education of what categories people aren’t as familiar with are – tell me more about those awards and I might become more invested in who wins or at least be able to understand why certain films get nominated.

    Totally agree with the disrespectful nature of the show – particularly the rushed in memoriam and the ending. No issue with Hopkins winning or not being there – he’s 83 and lives in Wales. But putting Best Actor last was a a calculated, manipulative decision that bombed. The producers of the show used Chadwick’s death to try to score a big moment and they failed. So dismissive of the other nominees were the producers that it never entered in to their heads that someone else could win, nevermind that the most likely alternative winner to Chadwick would be Hopkins who they knew wouldn’t even be at the show. And then to have Joaquin Phoenix present the award instead of Renee Zellweger (isn’t it usually the opposite gender like supporting was?) – he couldn’t even be bothered to read nice things about the nominees, including honoring Chadwick? What a mess.

    One Night in Miami was soo good. Don’t understand how that missed so much.

  2. Interestingly, the Bafta victors matched the Oscar winners to the tune of 18/19 only differing on Cinematography and I don’t think they have ever aligned as closely as this before. Question is, is this just a one off or will the Baftas now become a reliable predictor for the future Oscar winners?
