Movie Date: Bad Oscars
Friday, February 15, 2013
We’re only a week away from Oscar weekend, and while the awards show is undeniably the biggest in Hollywood, it’s also considered the corniest, most overblown event – even by the biggest movie fans. How bad is it?
In Newsday film critic Rafer Guzman’s opinion, it can be pretty awful. The second half of our movie date team, The Takeaway’s Kristen Meinzer, agrees – but only to a point.
“Sometimes I think the Oscars are Hollywood at its sort of Hollywood worst,” Guzman said.
The movie date team joins WNYC’s Amy Eddings to talk about Oscars in years past, and what we can expect this year.
