‘The Awards Show Show’: Bear Rape, Best Actress, and Blockbusters — Oh, My!


On this week’s installment of "The Awards Show Show," Vulture's Kyle Buchanan and KPCC/"The Frame" host John Horn discuss the wackiest awards-season rumor yet — and it involves a carnal, bestial encounter with Leonardo DiCaprio — before moving on to the question of whether a blockbuster like The Martian or Mad Max has a shot at Best Picture. (If either won, it would be the first time such a big hit has triumphed since … well, we’ll tell you.) After that, Kyle and John predict who’ll get nominated for Best Actress, and it’s an awfully young crowd. Who do you think will be in the final five?
