For Episode 283, we weren’t expecting to have a show this week. With the SAG Awards tonight, we already gave our predictions on last week’s show and will have instant reactions for you all tomorrow. However, on Tuesday, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences made a shocking announcement regarding their telecast this year, and thus, a show was needed. Then, the world proceeded to change around us, but we’re still here to hopefully bring a little light into your lives as we know how much this show can serve as a comforting distraction from the horrors of real life. Josh Parham, Will Mavity, and guest Charlie Bright from Gold Derby join me to discuss the Academy’s changes regarding eight Oscar categories being pre-taped before the live telecast, our own suggestions on how to fix the ratings problem ABC has been experiencing, and what these changes will mean for the future. We also deliver our predictions for next week’s Independent Spirit Awards, go over the polls, give our reactions to the trailer for “The Bad Guys,” answer your fan-submitted questions, and more. This is your last week to vote on the 2021 NBP Film Community Award winners, so please take a moment to vote here if you have not done so already. Thank you all so very much for your support. Enjoy!
