Reviewing This Year’s Academy Awards: Critical Acclaim Vs. Audience Popularity

SUBSCRIBE TO THE FEDERALIST RADIO HOUR HERE.

Washington Post Film Critic Ann Hornaday joined Emily Jashinsky on the Federalist Radio Hour for a discussion on this year’s best movies and the stories behind the Oscar nominated films–both the ones that won, and those who didn’t but deserved to.

They discuss how a movie like “Green Book” wins, and the motivations behind the Academy’s voting members. And also the very critical question: Did Bradley Cooper lose because he’s just too attractive?

“I really feel like Bradley Cooper–maybe when you make it look easy like that…he could have gotten that bias. He’s just too handsome,” Hornaday said. “It’s sort of what women face when they’re too beautiful, they’re not thought of as smart. Maybe that is part of it.”
