Quick, Here’s All You Need to Know About the Oscars

Theaters were shut but the ceremony is still happening? Yep! In a podcast, our awards experts catch you up.

So we asked our movie experts, the Projectionist columnist Kyle Buchanan and senior staff editor Mekado Murphy, to join in a podcast and take us through what’s expected on the telecast and what’s in the running. Have a listen.
