This week's Cutscene: It's all about the Oscars

Let's break down those Best Picture nominees

The Oscars are set to air this Sunday, Feb. 28 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. To prepare for the awards ceremony, which has faced contempt from both people inside and outside of the industry over the lack of people of color nominated, Susana and Julia sat down with reporter Allegra Frank and senior reporter Samit Sarkar to discuss the movies.

Some of the highlights from this week's episode include:

  • a heated discussion on Bridge of Spies
  • our opinions on each of the eight Best Picture nominees
  • Allegra's hot take on Mad Max: Fury Road
  • do the Oscars still matter?
