Recently on The Awards Show Show from Vulture and The Frame
Vulture's Kyle Buchanan and The Frame's John Horn discuss the wackiest awards-season rumor yet — and it involves a carnal, bestial encounter with Leonardo DiCaprio — before moving on to the question of whether a blockbuster like "The Martian" or "Mad Max" has a shot at Best Picture. (If either won, it would be the first time such a big hit has triumphed since… well, they’ll tell you.) They go on to debate who’ll get nominated for Best Actress, and it’s an awfully young crowd. Who do you think will be in the final five? Subscribe to The Awards Show Show on iTunes: itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/award…d1060952322?mt=2
Are true stories a sure bet during awards season? From "Spotlight" to "Steve Jobs," several of this year's contenders are based on true events — though some take liberties with fact and fiction; Hosts John and Kyle also assess new releases 'Creed' and 'The Danish Girl,' and the buzzy yet-to-be-released movie "The Revenant"; Plus, we hear excerpts from interviews with directors Ryan Coogler, Tom McCarthy and Danny Boyle, and actor Eddie Redmayne.
