Shot/Reverse Shot: Episode 83 - Why Do We Care About the Oscars?

We're a little bit introspective this week since the episode is all about how Matt and I are massive hypocrites. We both claim not to care about the Oscars, yet every year we get annoyed at the nominees or the results, and we use "it was nominated for/won an Oscar" as a signifier of quality, despite insisting they're meaningless. To that end, we discuss the importance of an Oscar to the financial success of a film, what it means for the people who win them, and share some silly Oscar trivia that you are free to use at your next dinner party or work function.
