From the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles, California it’s the 58TH ANNUAL ACADEMY AWARDS! It’s the night THE STARS COME OUT TO SHINE, and one of those stars is ERIC ROBERTS, nominated for Best Supporting Actor for RUNAWAY TRAIN! Joining us to discuss the entire broadcast is Ryan Prows, the director of 2017’s incredible darkly comic crime comedy LOWLIFE! We discuss HUEY LEWIS (and the POWER OF LOVE!), Teri Garr, RACISM, Quentin Tarantino, MUPPETS, an awkward Paul Newman, a catatonic Jack Nicholson, and SO MUCH MORE. What a time to be alive!
