The Awards Show Show: The Big Short Director Adam McKay on His Awards-Season Front-runner

This week on The Awards Show Show, Vulture’s Kyle Buchanan and KPCC’s John Horn sit down with Adam McKay, the director of one of this awards season’s biggest movies, The Big Short. What does Adam make of the movie’s recent PGA win? Why was this dense economic dramedy easier to get green-lit than Anchorman 2? And what gets Adam so revved up about the editorials taking issue with his film?

This wide-ranging conversation covers all these things and more, including a close read of the recent SAG awards. Listen above, and then subscribe to The Awards Show Show.
