Bryan Curtis stops by to talk about Richard Jewell and Bombshell, two new films about the media, the Kathy Scruggs controversy at the center of Clint Eastwood’s latest, and how factual a movie about real people ought to be (1:04). Then, Sean and Amanda break down the just-released Oscars short lists and survey the Best Director race—and the probable absence of women from said race (38:48). Finally, Sean is joined by Bombshell director Jay Roach to discuss his long career in comedy and the making of his new film about the inner workings of Fox News (60:36).
