83rd Academy Awards recap podcast!

It's that time of year again. Fancy dresses, accolades, bad jokes, awkward speeches, and general predictability from Hollywood. That's not to say that it isn't at least fun to watch. The 83rd Academy Awards were Sunday night and this weeks podcast is a recap of our thoughts on the whole shebang, as well as music from previous oscar winning scores. The Gaffer and I discussed what it takes to win an Academy Award, as well as going back and pointing out examples of how the better movie isn't always the winner. You might be surprised. We hope you enjoy the show, and we apologize for our two week hiatus from the show. We're back in action, so get ready.

We heard music from the following Oscar winning scores:

Star Wars: A New Hope - John Williams (1977)
The Last Emperor - Ryuchi Sakomoto, David Byrne, Cong Su (1987)
The Omen - Jerry Goldsmith (1976)
Out of Africa - John Barry (1985)
Round Midnight - Herbie Hancock (1986)
Midnight Express - Giorgio Moroder (1978)
The Social Network - Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross (2010)
