Cinema Royale: Talking The Oscars; The Wins, The Losses, The Mood, The Slap

The 94th Academy Awards are over, and you know what? It was one that we’ll never forget. There’s something to say about the history-making show, the winners who broke new ground, and, sadly, the slap heard around the world. It was Goddamn nuts! So let’s talk about it.

Joining me on this episode of Cinema Royale is my good friend Karen Peterson, Awards Editor at We Live Entertainment, to break down what was going on there at the show, what the mood was like, and what everybody was doing when Will Smith smacked the shit out of Chris Rock.

All of this and more, of course! You can subscribe to Cinema Royale wherever you get your podcasts, and be sure to do the same on Youtube! Follow the Punch Drunk Critics and Cinema Royale!
