Last year’s Academy Awards featured one of the most dramatic moments in the show’s history when best picture was incorrectly awarded to "La La Land" before rightfully being given to "Moonlight." We conclude our Oscars preview with a look at who we think will be taking home trophies on Sunday.
Films that open early in the year are rarely remembered at the end of the year by Oscar voters. "Get Out" is an exception, earning four nominations – including best picture. We continue our Oscars preview series with a look at the film's lasting appeal -- and how it relates to the success of "Black Panther." Joining us for the conversation is Kenton Rambsy, assistant professor of African American Literature & Digital Humanities at the University of Texas at Arlington.
Movies about British history are catnip for Oscar voters. "The King’s Speech," "Atonement," "The Queen" and "The Imitation Game" are just a few recent best picture nominees. We continues its Oscars preview with a conversation about a pair of hopefuls this year connected by one of the towering figures of 20th Century Britain … Winston Churchill.
"Phantom Thread" is up for six Academy Awards this year, including best picture. We continue our Oscars preview with a conversation about how the film captured the world of haute couture. Joining us is Myra Walker, professor emeritus in the College of Visual Arts and Design at the University of North Texas and the former curator and director of the Texas Fashion Collection.
