Why It Might Be Hard to Get Oscar Nominations For The Year’s Best Performances

Little Gold Men - October 20, 2016 - 43:51

Opening in theaters this week, Moonlight features stellar performances from everyone in its cast—but its unique structure makes it particularly challenging in the context of an Oscar campaign. We discuss the film that has us all swooning, and then talk to Moonlight’s director Barry Jenkins, who has a theory that if one of his actors were onscreen longer, he’d have the best supporting actor statue wrapped up already. Panoply Survey: Here at Panoply, we want to get to know you (and your podcast listening habits) a little better. To take the next step, we created a survey that takes just a couple of minutes to complete. If you fill it out, you'll help Panoply to make great podcasts about the things you love. And things you didn't even know you loved. To fill out the survey, just go to panoply.fm/survey
