‘Parasite’ watches the Kims fall from grace, at first led by desperation but later greed and ambition, with the same care and interest afforded to many of today’s beloved antiheroes.
On this episode of the Federalist Radio Hour, our hosts break down the biggest winners and losers of this year’s Academy Awards ceremony.
The Oscars’ second year with no host proves the awards show just isn’t that interesting without a comedian to guide us through it.
More important than the films nominated at the Oscars are the gowns worn. Here’s a rundown of the looks we loved and the ones we could live without.
Without a host for the second straight year, the 2020 Oscars were neither aggressively boring nor especially memorable.
Academy Awards history was made in 2020, with the first time a foreign-language film won the Oscar for Best Picture: ‘Parasite’ capped off a surprise sweep, winning four out of six nominations.
Prepare for Sunday’s Academy Awards by reviewing a year’s worth of Federalist takes on the nominees.
It is refreshing to see the Academy buck the outrage culture crying over “inequality,” and it is a delight to see films we all loved get recognition in a circle that seemed to have been shrinking around more unpopular films each year.
In ‘Hustlers,’ Jennifer Lopez transformed into a difficult character, masterfully conveying layers of class tension and womanhood that less capable actresses wouldn’t have grasped.

Kevin Hart should be hosting the Oscars. But now he won’t, because of homosexuality-related jokes he made a decade ago.
The movies that break records and sit at the top of the box office week after week don’t need to win an Academy Award. They’ve already been given the award of huge amounts of money.
The Oscars continually award ‘importance’ over quality, and Meryl Streep’s yearly perfunctory nomination cheapens the entire ceremony.
There are a lot of wonderful things I could say about other nominees, but ‘I, Tonya’ deserves to be recognized alongside them.
