The countdown to the 91st Academy Awards has begun! We’re listening now to one of the Academy Award nominated songs for Best Song, from the film, “Ralph Wrecks the Internet,” which is great to see, BTW, and grandkids will love it, too! But, the song is sung by comedian Sarah Silverman, and it titled, “A Place Called Slaughter Race.” It’s a funny song…I think you’ll enjoy it.
But, now that it's February we are only weeks away from the biggest award show of the year with the 2019 Oscars coming up.
Since it's the biggest award show in the entertainment world—especially in the film world—winning one of these Oscar statues is an honor like no other. Winning the title of Best Picture however is the ultimate award when it comes to movies and so far there have been a lot of noteworthy recipients.
We will learn about 2019 Best Picture nominees, and all other Oscar related behind the scenes stories from our guest today, Noah Gittell, who’ll be at the Smithsonian Associates program, Feb. 21, 2019. So, we’re going to get festive, and cast our votes for the winners in the many categories, and Noah Gittell will share much more, including prizes for the most accurate predictions!
