This is the perfect primer to get you ready to enjoy Hollywood’s biggest night this Sunday, April 25 at 8pm ET on ABC.
Hollywood is synonymous with glamour, but it’s not all frivolous and superficial. What the stars choose to wear on Oscar Sunday can send a powerful message.

Anatomy of the Academy
What does it take to win Best Picture? It’s more complicated than you might think. ABC News Radio’s Jason Nathanson joins host Ginger Zee for a crash course in the campaign tactics and number crunching that determines who gets to accept Hollywood’s biggest honor. Plus, learn the backstory of a love story like no other between a man and an octopus.
Host Ginger Zee and The Undefeated’s Kelley Carter discuss the importance of representation on and off camera, and how the Academy’s changing membership is reflected in this year’s Oscars nominations. Plus, Best Actress nominee Andra Day on the leap of faith it took for her to jump into acting and portray her idol, Billie Holiday. And, the director behind the Oscar-nominated documentary short "A Love Song for Latasha" explains why keeping Latasha Harlins’ memory from fading became her passion project.
And the Nominees Are?
You can watch almost all of this year’s Oscar nominated movies from your living room, but without blockbuster releases and battles over box office rankings many of the best new films have flown under the radar. Host Ginger Zee and ABC News entertainment contributor Chris Connelly help get you up to speed on all the extraordinary movies you may have missed. Plus, a preview of the history that could be made on Oscar Sunday, and how the Academy is contending with all the curveballs of COVID ahead of Hollywood’s biggest night.
Thanks for the inside and backside info
I have been a longtime fan of Ginger Zee (both with the Frozen podcasts and her participation with DWTS), and I found she had many of the same questions as I did of the Oscar voting procedures, selection process, etc. I greatly appreciated her review of the Octopus documentary, particularly as I love within 20 miles of the Pacific (central California coast). It was a great listen, especially since I had not watched any of the nominated movies or even the Oscar event itself. Thank you (and your team!) for putting this podcast together!
Great Personable Insight!
Love the insight into all things Oscar. Interesting, entertaining and involving!
