Why Are the Oscars Removing Four Categories From the Telecast?

Plus, the ‘A Star Is Born’ media blitz and a conversation with composer Nicholas Britell, of ‘If Beale Street Could Talk’ and ‘Moonlight’

Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga in ‘A Star Is Born’ Warner Bros. Pictures

We sift through what’s real and what’s just British after the BAFTAs this weekend, and whether or not the A Star Is Born media blitz is helping or hurting its stock at the Oscars. Then we wonder what might happen if the Oscars telecast is as much of a disaster as it’s shaping up to be. Finally, Sean sits down with Nicholas Britell—the composer of the If Beale Street Could Talk, Moonlight, and Succession soundtracks—to talk about the process of conceiving a score and working with a director to execute their vision.

Hosts: Sean Fennessey and Amanda Dobbins

Guest: Nicholas Britell
