No One’s Seen the Best Picture Frontrunners. Does It Matter?

March 24, 2022

This week, Sonny talks to the Los Angeles Times’s Ryan Faughnder about a new poll showing that Coda and The Power of the Dog, the frontrunners for the Best Picture Oscar at this weekend’s Academy Awards, have been seen by just four and six percent of entertainment consumers, respectively. Then they discuss the walkout at Disney over the Mouse House CEO’s failure to speak up more vocally against Florida’s so-called “Don’t Say Gay” bill, as well as charges of hypocrisy that ethnic cleansing in China didn’t spark similar protests. And, finally, they talk about Amazon’s purchase of MGM and what that means for James Bond and Prime Video. If you enjoy the episode, share it with a friend!
