The Pop Almanac Podcast #23: Oscar Pageantry
It's a special Monday edition of the Pop Almanac as Brendan, Duncan and special guest comedian Andrew Tompkins record an immediate Oscar reaction.
After assessing the telecast as a whole (Billy Crystal was acceptably mediocre, the awards themselves offered few surprises), the gritty details are examined: Was it a weird choice of memorium montage song or a terribly cliche choice? Why did the producers decide on such a middling, unispired musical number to open the show? Should the Oscars switch to a selection process like that of the Nobel prize committee?
All this, and a scheme is hatched to sabotage the entirety of the Internet by breaking into a Virginia office building! Listen to hear the most unique and memorable parts of Oscar night, discuss succinctly and hilariously.
