CandidxCinema Podcast: Episode #1 – Oscars 2020

As we all know, Oscar season is almost over. It has been such a long ride since last September, when I watched majority of the nominees at The Toronto International Film Festival. I decided to start my own podcast ahead of Oscar Sunday and share some wisdom about how the Academy works.

In the following podcast, I discuss the major snubs and the politics behind the nominations/wins. I talk about the lack of female representation in the Best Director category AND the lack of nominations for people of colour. I also didn’t forget to go on a rant, highlighting how every Oscar season has been fairly questionable, over the past decade.

Award Season Nominations & Early Predictions

Well, it’s officially Oscar season and the nominations have been rolling in! The past couple of days we’ve had the Golden Globe, Critics Choice and SAG award nominations announced and it’s going to be a very tough year this year!

The films that have surprised me the most are Black Panther, The Favourite, Vice and Mary Poppins Returns to name a few. There are so many things that I have to say so I made a podcast highlighting all three award nominations!
