DiCaprio wins as Spotlight shocks and Mad Max: Fury Road scorches the competition! Welcome to Episode 52 of “Reel Chat” – the podcast that promises week in / week out, the “Reel World as we know it.”
This week the “Reel Chat” team brings you the “2016 Oscars Post-Show Roundtable Special.” Your host Adam Stolfo is joined by co-host Brose Avard, Stuart Wilson, Matthew O’Neill and James Hazelden (yes, 5 of us!) to look in detail at every film fan’s night of nights. But do people actually have any interest in it anymore? What did everybody think about the “Big Elephant In The Room” this year (the diversity issue)? Is the magic and celebration of film still present? Did Chris Rock pull it off as host? Does anyone actually care about the Best Original Song category? Did our guests actually like the Best Picture winner – Spotlight? Are the award speeches just a continuing avenue for making hard-hitting or political statements!?
All of these questions and much, much more are answered here in our second Oscars special. There might even be a special bonus addition to the end of the episode, with one of the Reel Chat team members recently “tying the knot” and adding some Reel Chat flavour to his wedding speech.
