And the Oscar goes to...well, not the nerdy films. For most of the history of the Academy Awards, nerdy genre films haven't got the love they so richly deserved. Josh and Colleen look to rectify these omissions with the help of special guest Steve from the OscarWatch Podcast as they discuss which nerdy films were most overlooked at the Academy Awards. Find out which classic horror film almost won two Razzies, why 2001 wasn't nominated for Costume Design, and why the Academy wanted to rescind the nomination for Best Supporting Actress for Linda Blair in The Exorcist. Plus, we talk about how to best watch older movies with content that is not ok from a modern perspective.
