The Awards Show Show: Why Are the Oscars So White, and What Will Win Best Picture?


On this week's episode of The Awards Show Show, Vulture's Kyle Buchanan and KPCC's John Horn sink their teeth into this week's Oscar nominations. The Revenant and Mad Max: Fury Road led the nominations, but Kyle thinks the ultimate Best Picture battle will come down to two very different movies. Later in the show, Kyle and John rant about the Academy's 20 white acting nominees and discuss why this happened, while sifting through some of the smaller categories to discuss their favorite inclusions (and most frustrating exclusions).
