‘Do Over Oscars’ with Special Guest Nathan Beard (Movie Squad Podcast Episode #9)

Monday 11th February / presented by Simon Miraudo Tristan Fidler

"It's a wonderful night for Oscar, Oscar, Oscar..." That's what Billy Crystal used to sing when he'd host the Academy Awards, but was it always a wonderful night for great cinema? Were Oscar winners always justified and Oscar losers robbed of just acknowledgement? For this special episode of the Movie Squad podcast, we honour Oscar season by rewriting the past and holding our own 'Do Over Oscars' - looking back at which past winners (in all categories) should be re-evaluated and handed to the rightful nominee! Simon Miraudo and Tristan Fidler are joined by acclaimed artist Nathan Beard who shares his love of the Oscars - ranking his favourite award categories, for example - and sharing his picks for which Oscar winners need to be handed back and redistributed. Who didn't deserve Best Director in a year when Robert Altman and David Lynch were in the nominee pool? Should the category of Best Original Song be done away with completely? And which hideous-looking movie unbelievably won the Best Costume category? The Oscars will never be the same after this round table!
