In this final episode of Season two of The Awards Show Show, co-hosts Kyle Buchanan (vulture.com) and John Horn (theframe.org) deconstruct "Moonlight's" big win, how it got there and yes, what happened with the botched presentation. John Horn was in attendance at the Oscars and paints a vivid picture of how it played out in the Dolby Theater. Both he and Kyle hit the post show parties and give their insights on the night. Plus, Kyle laments the phrase "Suicide Squad Oscar winner." And finally, if the Academy Awards provides a snapshot of what kinds of films Hollywood wants to make these days or how it's feeling as a community...what did this 2016-2017 season tell us?
