Each and every year, your friends at the In Reel Deep Podcast lament the attention paid to the Academy Awards. We rant about how out of touch and irrelevant they are, and then we write feature-length stories and record podcasts all about them.
Of course, 2018 is no different. But did the Oscars get it right this time? It's certainly a more diverse set of faces than we're used to: young and old, black and white. To celebrate the upcoming 90th Academy Awards, and also to take potshots at them, we're going through the big eight—Best Adapted and Original Screenplay, Best Director, the four acting awards, and Best Picture—as we count down the seconds to the March 4 ceremony.
