Oscar Podcast #52: Oscars Post-Mortem with Ryan Adams and Sasha Stone of AwardsDaily

On this 52nd Oscar podcast, the last of the 2016-2017 awards season, I’m honored to have AwardsDaily‘s Sasha Stone and Ryan Adams as guests for the post-Oscar post-mortem.

After last night’s historic win for Moonlight in Best Picture and an announcement fiasco unlike anything the Academy Awards have ever seen before, there is a lot for Stone, Adams and myself to talk about.

Between our personal appreciation for Moonlight (and La La Land, for that matter) the conversation traverses politics and emotions as we analyze the academic reasons for the film’s success and why it was so important that it won.

We cover the perceived backlash and controversy that arrived late for La La Land, what streaks and records were broken last night and which ones held true, including that Best Actor SAG stat where we saw Denzel Washington lose to Casey Affleck.

This podcast runs 1h 36m with music.

Intro: A24’s ‘Moonlight’ trailer featuring music from Nicholas Britell’s Oscar-nominated score

Outro: Thomas Newman’s “New York City By Day” from the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack of Desperately Seeking Susan

About Erik Anderson

Erik blames his mother for his love of all things Oscar, having watched them together since he opened his eyes. They also watched Miss Universe religiously every year (the pageantry!) and Erik came to the conclusion that the combination of these two things ultimately led him down the path to obsessing about awards and ACTRESSING. He began at GoldDerby, led by Tom O’Neill and then migrated over to Oscarwatch (now AwardsDaily), headed up by Sasha Stone before breaking off to create AwardsWatch. He is a member of the International Cinephile Society, GALECA (The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics), the International Press Academy and is the founder/owner of AwardsWatch.
