Sasha Stone of AwardsDaily.com talks about 20 years of raising a baby and a website on the Oscar race.
Episode Fifteen (2013) - Fare Thee Well
It was the year 12 Years a Slave made Oscar history, even if most pundits were predicting Gravity. The Inside Llewyn Davis journey started in Cannes, then went bust come Oscar time. And Marty and Paul Thomas Anderson talk Wolf of Wall Street. And goodbye to my friend Craig.
Episode Fourteen (2012) - Argo wins Best Picture, but not before Zero Dark Thirty got destroyed. Life of Pi teaches us about Saying Goodbye
Competing Oscar narratives in 2012 made it seem like a wide open year. But Argo emerged the frontrunner when Ben Affleck was surprisingly left off the Best Director list. It was a competitive year and the year Jennifer Lawrence won Best Actress. It was a hard year for me emotionally and looking back reminds me of someone very dear to me who died of an overdose this past year.
Episode Thirteen (2011) - The Artist, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Attending Cannes and the Oscars for the first time
The Artist won Best Picture in 2011 - but The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Hugo were the movies I was most captivated by. But taking my daughter to Cannes was, to me, the best thing about it. Also, what it was like going to the Oscars and the continuing struggle of life online.
Special Interview with My Daughter Emma
My daughter moved to New York this year and I wanted to capture the moment on a podcast. The sound is a little bad since we're driving. We were driving across the country and decided to record a conversation
Special Interview with Michael Grei
One of my best friends Michael Grei and I discuss our friendship, the Oscars and life in general. Michael was my former boss back in the 1980s at the video store in Santa Monica. We've been friends ever since.
Episode Twelve - The Social Network - 2010: "Drop the THE. Just Facebook. It's Cleaner."
In 2010 I watched the Social Network 30 times. It is among my all time favorite films. It did not win Best Picture but that didn't seem to matter. 2010 was also the year I first went to the Cannes Film Festival.
So rich, and engrossing!
As a long time fan, I just want to say that this podcast is a JOY. So emotional, while also being educational. A lovely keyhole into your journey on this planet. So excited for more.
Hope there is a book coming out of this!
Interesting stories of her life and the history of the oscars. I just hope we will get a book from her some day! She always picks the best music.
This is great
Had low expectations but this is really really good and interesting. It’s well produced and the content is very interesting
