"I didn't feel like I was in our four. And I think that's a great feeling that you you want your audience to have it seemed to move quickly to me without having somebody come out in do their obligatory stick and try to laugh and reflect on what's going on. I am glad that you know, Kevin Hart stepped down in the whole hubbub only because I feel like we would have still been talking about it this whole conversation probably would have been about did he redeem himself from that regarding Regina king. I am. So glad that she's finally getting her do she has been in this industry for over thirty some odd years doing a lot of background work really a lot of supporting work, really. And while she still has a supporting role in if Beale street could talk I think we really got a chance or rather than say. I think the broader audience got a chance to finally see how fabulous in amazing. She is. And I think her speech showed that in. Hopefully, we get to see her in more weighty more full roles to calm and travel. Would you have liked to have seen I presume Black Panther or black klansman as the winner of the best? Phil Black Panther was my pick only because I feel like we're at a point in the industry where the Oscars who wins the top Oscars should signal where we wanna go. And I think Black Panther represented a landmark in represents a landmark moment in our industry, where we see, you know, this film that centers on a uniquely black Africa futuristic experience being one of the top grossing movies ever. And it really kind of having a place in the culture, not only now, but for years to come. I think we'll look back on the Oscars of last night in ten fifteen twenty years, and we'll say that we got it wrong with green book. Yeah. And I was interested in reading some of your comments about our own humble, I hair. Ryan Kugler Oakland native who made fruitvale station, which many people here in the bay. Remember, you pointed out that that had a million dollar budget, whereas creed which he did afterward had a forty million dollar budget and Black Panther two hundred billion dollar budget. Quite quite a difference in those expenses in terms of the budgets. Some winners used the moment to call attention to political and social issues, and I want to get into that with our three critics. We're talking with treselle Anderson and Claudia Puig and Tim Grierson. And we're going to talk with you and bring you into this many thoughts about winners and losers. I always hate to use the word snub about the Oscars. But there were those concerns especially with boots Riley sorry to bother you again. Local Oakland native who made a film that got a good deal of attention, but didn't make it into the best film categories. And you may want to comment on what didn't make it or would didn't win as well as the winners. One of the big winners was of course, Alfonso Koran. Here's accepting the best directing award for Roma. I went to faint academy for recognizing a film center around an indigenous woman, one of the seventy million domestic workers in the world without works with a worker rights character starkly happy regulate relegated in the background in cinema. Authorities. Our job is to look where others don't responsibility becomes much more important in terms when we are being encouraged to look away, well that Claudia Puig was one of the more political moments. And there were a few of them are always are at the Oscars, but there weren't necessarily as many I mean or of a different vintage when. For example, the award was accepted by Rami Markle for lobby Mel excuse me for bohemian rhapsody. He said something about being an immigrant in about the portrayal of Freddie, Mercury is a gay man and so forth, but it was more muted than it's been in the past. In other words, long soliloquies about some political statement of that sort. No, they weren't long soliloquies. But I thought they were very human moments. I loved the diversity what my colleagues have been talking about. I feel exactly the same. I think that I loved hearing foreign languages spoken. And we heard Spanish spoken by on by yoga. Luna. I think have you by them even to I loved hearing Sosa spoken by Trevor Noah, I you know, that's never happened before I loved that Romney Malik spoke of being a first generation American and being a son of immigrants. I mean when you think about that of the four acting winners three where people of color, Regina, king Mahershala, Ali and Rami Malik. Then you have quite on, you know, at and that film, the fat that won the best foreign language film was huge for Mexico. Mexico has never won a foreign language film. Oscar, which is kind of shocking when you think about you think maybe now though the wall pay for the wall. We're not even gonna go there. There were a few comments about, you know, not, you know, tearing down walls and building bridges and thank goodness for that. What about John Lewis coming out with green book and being coming out centerstage and talking about how it affected him? Yeah. Well, I think he's, you know, he's a wonderful spokesperson for that era. And you know, as a civil rights hero. It's wonderful always to hear from him. And I'm sure it's spoke to him because of you know, being up close and personal with all of what he went through. So it's always wonderful to hear from him. Well, it's not your parents or grandparents Oscars anymore. I never saw Jack Nicholson. In fact, I haven't seen him in the last few Oscars. No, Billy, crystal. It's a very different kind of Oscars, especially in terms of the diversity as you said. Claudia and go back to you. Tim Gershon impressive. What was one of the biggest surprises of the evening and that was a Libya Coleman getting an Oscar. Let's hear my cancer watching. Well, if you're not then we'll kind of well done. You are this is not going to happen again. He's proxima speak on the Tel. You never know. That was a big surprise to many people. Probably the most surprising thing of last night's ceremony in terms of who won walked away with an Oscar, Tim. Yeah, I would agree with that. And. Most people thought Glenn Close who was nominated for the wife who was her seventh Oscar nomination the narrative, I think going into the Oscars last night was Glenn Close's. Do it's it's her turn. She deserves to win the Oscar. And I think everybody in the room was surprising. Clearly, Olivia Colman was surprised. I thought it was really. Really kinda gracious lovely moment between the two of them during the show in critter director for catching it during the show when. In her speech Livia. Coleman said Glenn Close. This is not how I wanted it to be and you've been my idol and hero for years and years, and they cut the Glenn Close, and she just looked so happy and so pleased and was such a nice human moments as Claudia was saying earlier in the show needs those moments in needs those human interactions where you realize that they're not just celebrities and big movie stars. They are actually human beings. Olivia Colman was the biggest surprise I feel bad for Glenn Close. She'll be fine. I'm not concerned for her. But I will also say that they thought they will love your Coleman's performance was better in the favourite. Then Glenn Close wasn't the wife. She's quite good in the wife, and the wife is a good movie by just think the favorite is a stronger film and often what happens is that revered the veteran actors received their Oscars for movies later in their career, which are not their strongest work and what? I'm sorry finishes. Glenn Close one for the wife. It would have continued that trend Olivia Colman one for the strongest performance of the five in the category. So in some ways, I thought the Oscar voters actually got it, right? In terms of what they voted for me. You're talking about human moments. A lot of people found that the duet. Sung by lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper to be a very touching moment. Yeah. Yeah. And I saw this on Twitter afterwards that when they went to commercial, and then they went to sit down. The two of them. They got another standing ovation from the audience that wasn't on TV. We didn't get to see that. But that also happened. You know, what I was saying earlier about this idea of letting the the show be more about the movies and the presenters and the winners, I was actually thinking of the shallow performance specifically because for people whose favorite movie of last year was a star is born for four or five minutes, the show was entirely for you because at performance between lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper was one of the real highlights. It was wonderfully choreographed and directed clearly they had worked on that. And it captured I think one of the strongest elements of that movie, and you know, they weren't going to win the big prizes. But for that four or five minutes star is born was like the biggest movie in the world and in general in terms of just Oscar broadcasts. I like when the academy does that. Well, we're talking about the Academy Awards. Tim Grissom's with us. See senior US critic for screening. International and vice president of Los Angeles Film Critics association. Claudia Puig also with us president of the Los Angeles Film Critics association and travel Anderson, director of culture and entertainment for out magazine. And a lot of talk last night on the Oscars about the museum opening up a lot of buzz about that. What what is particularly what came under your notice? I mean, there are a little moments like when somebody's think Carrie Fisher, which I still have an accounted for and said, we owe everything to Carrie Fisher. I'm still maybe one of the critics can help us understand that. But you if you have questions about the Oscars are, particularly if you have strong opinions, we want to hear from you..

"Welcome to this morning's forum. I'm Michael Krasny. The ninety first annual Oscars ceremony took place last night. And in what some consider an upset. Green. Book took best picture beating out critical favorites Roma and black clansman. Who's director Spike Lee had this to say I'm snake bit. I mean, every time somebody who's driving some by loose. They'd say, the seating arrangement. The segment we'll parse the winners and also rans and talk about the ceremonies highlights, and we want to hear from you. What's your take on the evening and did the most deserving get there? Do you can join us at our toll free number and that number is eight six six seven three three six seven eight six and joining us for the hour is travel Anderson, director of culture and entertainment without magazine. Good to have you with us. Welcome to the program. Thank you so much for having me, and we also have Tim gruesome with a senior US critic for screen international and vice president of the Los Angeles film. Critics association. Author of a couple of books. Martin Scorsese film, Kraft's screenwriting welcome to the program. Tim, grayson. Thank you for having me. Do we know is Martin Scorsese's the Irishman a remake of the other Irishmen was a new arrangement. I believe. I mean, it's based on a true story, but it is its own specific Irishman. Okay. I thought you'd have the truth on that one. And we also have Claudia Puig with us back with us on foreign president of the Los Angeles Film Critics association. Claudia welcome. Thank you. Thanks for having me. Glad to have you. Let me begin with you. You've come out along with some other people right to the core of a good deal of controversy over the selection of green book, and it seems to be a criticism that has to do with the well first of all an important criticism that maybe Don Stanley's family, the African American character wasn't consulted. And they have described the events the real events of the film was based on his a symphony of lies, but the real criticism to the heart of the movie being the best movie is it's a feel-good movie. And it's too much from white point of view. That's what we're hearing on Twitter. And that's what essentially you've said. Yes, that's what I will continue saying till the day. I die. I really feel. Yes. Don Shirley's family. You know, they had a very a valid complaint. But, you know, maybe if the movie had been better, we could you know, somehow, accept this. But it's at best. This is a very conventional formulaic superficial sitcom cliche movie and at worst. It's a kind of a, you know, making people feel good about racism is supposedly feel good movie that reduces, you know, a a huge problem that we are still in the thick of to this simple little story. And I just I find a galling that at one here your passion. And yet the argument on the counter side of that is it was entertaining. And not only that but not racism is not dead. But Jim crow is dead. I mean, the laws that existed that made people drink from different water, fountains and sit in the back of the bus and all that that is gone. Well, the laws are, but the attitudes are still there, the feelings might still be underlying them. You know, I think we've we've seen a lot of examples Charlottesville being one of them which was beautifully depicted in black klansman, which I would have much preferred to see win best picture. I, you know. Yes. I I I just this is a to me the the goal of white filmmaker is trying to blithely, you know, depict this alienating of a black man from his own blackness and the way that they did with the fried chicken scenes, and you know, his there is the white guy. Glibly trying to teach a black musician about Aretha Franklin all of it just was so cringe inducing, I wonder travel Anderson if you felt differently because you interviewed Octavia Spencer one of the producers of green book, and she had some very favourable things to say. She thought it was very human film. She was glad she signed onto it. Can you come? Yeah. I mean, she was happy that she signed onto it and helped it come to fruition. But I mean, I think we also can't forget that she was in the help. So she might have a particular leaning to a certain type of film that doesn't really treat. It's black characters the best way that it could that being said, I mean, I agree with cloudy. I think green book, it's not the best film of the year Schumer is a solid it checks all the boxes of being something that people might consider to be Oscar worthy inconsiderate to be good. But what it does is it basically placates white people's feelings around race and around racism. It makes them think that they can somehow teach a black person about their blackness which I kind of resent. I'm we see what we've seen with the filmmakers in the ways they've been speaking about the controversy with Dr Don Shirley's family saying that there are a number of inaccuracies with the film's goals to show was that they are kind of you know, part of the problem when it comes to the. The ways in which black folks in particular are depicted onscreen, and it looks like we have unanimity on this with our three critics, Tim Gershon. You're in the same corner, aren't you? Yes. Very much. So last week actually for Rolling Stone. I was asked to write a piece about basically the doomsday scenario, which would be if green book wins. What does that mean? And last week, I wrote this, and I still feel this could I reread this morning. Green book is a movie that I think a lot of us who first of all love movies. But also do love the Academy Awards and do think that they are important internal talking about creating a canon of what are the quote, unquote, good movies in Hollywood history. I think a lot of us really hoped that we are past the era of the driving miss daisy is and the crashes and these sorts of movies, which now have already spoken about very eloquently are movies that placate a certain audience and tell that audience year racism is bad. But you know, what it's actually Naza Baz it used to be or it can be better. If we all just hang out more with one another and just get to know each other as people that's a really lovely sentiments. But I think anybody who lives in the real world knows racism is much more complicated than that. And the problem with green book winning is it feels like despite the academy in the last few years to their credit trying to diversify and broaden the membership to bring in more voices and the voices that were not being represented in the academy. The hope was a movie like green book would not win best picture anymore. It's a nice movie. It's a fine movie. Whatever it is not the best film of the year. Clearly, but my worry for weeks has been that there is still this contingent in the academy. The looks at that movie as being comforting and reassuring and feel good and woodstove owed for over much more sort of challenging provocative artistic films. Greenville is easy. Green book is a type of movie that you can kind of recommend to people. You know, it's not going to trouble them very much and the academy should do better. The Cami should not just honor movie like that they should honor movie more challenging than that. So green books when I have to say was not entirely surprising from your last night. But certainly disappointing. Well, Justin Chang may have said it best for all of you. When he said, it was the best worst picture since crash, which you have alluded to hear Tim. I'm also struck by the fact that let me read a comment comments are coming in. We'll read them as they come in. Morgan writes, all the best picture nods are worthy films. Green book deserved it as much as any of them. The acting was amazing. I think maybe all in agreement on that. The acting was pretty amazing was cloudy. Yes. The excuse me. The acting was the best thing about it. And particularly Bama Herschel Ali. I felt like Vigo Mortenson performance was a he's a really good actor. It wasn't one of his best. I felt like it was a little bit of a caricature. And we've seen that you know, what's the matter. You Italian guy kind of before. But shoot him on the sopranos. I think yes, I think he watched a few sopranos preparing for that role. But no, I think the acting was fine. I have no problem with the screenplay. That's the bigger issue when one for original screenplay, which was also going. Well, there's much more to talk about the green book, and let me get caller on the who wants to say something about Don. Go ahead. Yes. I I had a feeling it was going to win because of director and the producer. I can't celebrate a lot. If it's ninety nine percent fruit stuff in one percent of a lie is a lie. You other point. I wanted to make our tooth never celebrated. When it's told by us and told accurately it has to be whitened down in order to be accepted, and then to be celebrated and honored and given award. I find that pretty much the climate of America. I Don I appreciate your call. And thank you for letting us know what you thought and a lot of people thought it was very diverse last night. Let me go to that Tim Grierson as opposed to perhaps the concern about green book. There are a lot of presenters in what some say was better than having Kevin Hart is the lone host. I don't know how you feel about that as well. But certainly a lot of presenters and some more wars who were taken by people of African American background that had never been taken by African Americans before and women. Yeah. You know, which funny for me is the first three fourths of the show was really great. And I found really moving on a lot of the speeches were quite poignant, and quite touching and seem to seize the moments and understand the sort of historical significance. You mentioned this a little bit Michael that near Ruthie Carter winning for costume design for Black Panther of Bigler winning for Black Panther for production design, and sort of them talking about their experiences in the industry in coming to that moments and being on that stage. For both of them a lot of difficulty allow hardships along the way in finally getting to that moment was quite touching. I found it quite moving a lot of ways. So most of the show, I think actually the in terms of just the quality of the winners and the quality of their speeches. I felt of them were really quite terrific. And I think I don't want to keep harping on green book, but I will say that the caliber of the speeches for green book reverses allow the other speeches last night. I noticed a contrast for me a lot of the winners. Understood that they are part of a changing landscape in Hollywood that's become a much more diverse group of artists who are being acknowledged and given their chance to shine the stole a lot of work the Hollywood needs to do. But last night felt like two or three good steps in the right direction. And so in terms of whether there is a host or not a host, my feeling was I was actually happy not to have a host. I thought the show had a nice energy to it. And also I felt like as opposed to the focus being on the host, and whether or not he or she is funny or good enough as the hosts we actually thought more about the winners and the presenters and the musical performances was actually more about like the films themselves as opposed to a host. If the academy decided not to do a host anymore. I think I'm okay with that. Let me go back to you travel. Anderson on this. We. Disappointed. The Kevin Hart was not the host. And you must have been fairly elated about Regina king because she won for best. Supporting actress in if Bill street could talk, and I know you did extensive interview with her. Yeah. You know, regarding the the the whole situation, I think we actually fared better not having a host the pace of the show seemed to feel a lot better by our too..

"Hi, I love how Netflix is turning the film industry on its head because film like Roma would never have been picked up by, you know, a big studio Warner Brothers and. And I I like on Netflix, Hulu and the other one Amazon are producing needs movies that a major Hollywood studios Whitten produce. Also, one of the words is great. And on my nerves like having a nice day is the word diversity. I mean, we still have racist. Even if you have a diversity because a lot of these ethnic groups, don't like each other and don't get along. And I love how you what Spike Lee said, you know, you follow all the rules. And they keep you know, they they keep changing the chairs around. So that's my comment. Okay. I thank you for the comment. You know, there was something last night that maybe some listeners missed it took me a moment to realize when Rummy Malik was giving essentially his props and thanking people and so forth. The actually the first person he thanked was Emily Boynton who I'd seen the camera pan. I didn't really that was the love interest of. Freddie, Mercury from in the whole bohemian rhapsody. She played that role. I just wanted to mention that. And we'll go to more of your calls. Let me get to Anna Maria in Berkeley, good morning. Good morning. Yes. Hello. I would love to hear your panel talk about blind spotting. And why it wasn't nominated for anything? I just thought it was fantastic. The rat was so poetic, and it was dealing with very important issues. I just would love to hear the panel talk about their opinion on that any opinions from you Trevelyan gone you in a bit thought. Yeah. I mean, I think blind spotting for me was one of the best films of of last year. I it's unfortunate that I think DIVY digs did not get any kind of attention for for his particular role. Also in Oakland lad, originally. Yes in Oakland native. But I think it also comes down to there were a lot of really great films last year in everything can't get nominated. And also when you have a smaller independent type of film like a blind spotting if it doesn't get picked up by the right studio. And if the right studio doesn't do the right job around promoting it and making sure people see. It then it makes it difficult for to you know, muster any attention, and and get to the award shows Jovan with that in sorry to bother you think there was maybe a little bit of bias against Oakland. But I won't go there. Let me go instead to some comments by listeners are lane writes, I find it ironic that would happen. A Glenn Close at the Oscars last night, paralleled would happen to her character and the wife that might be a stretch, but strong feelings nonetheless, here's Cheryl who writes I'd like to give a shout out to marshal Ali an alumnus of Saint Mary's college of California in Moraga. He spoke at my son's SMC graduation in may of two thousand sixteen in his kind and sincere. Commencement address. Is a fond memory is acceptance speech, reflected the same genuine character more of your calls. Let's go next to Chris and Santa Cruz. Good morning. Good morning. I was watching the animation works last night. And this has happened. A couple of times over the years where I really felt like the category should be split into. Between, you know, the fully digital Pixar type films, and then things like stop motion in in other more traditional forms of you know, even hand-drawn outta mation. I'll just leave you guys to it Chris Mexico appoint Tim Gershon like to hear what you have to say about that splitting it. It's an interesting point. I mean, one of the things that I think is challenging in that category. Is you have so many different styles of animation? Even the five nominees are so different in terms of how they're kind of put together and also the bigger companies. They tend to be more popular with the Oscar voters, you usually get a Pixar movies actually, a shocking the spire verse one because it was from Sony. I oh, no. If they're gonna splits I think that probably is not going to happen. I think what often happens is that for the five nominees are big digitally animated movies from studio, isn't it like one small kind of beautiful handmade thing. Like Mirai for this year gets nominated in gets into the category. I think in general the hand drawn animation doesn't get a lotta love weirdly enough. It gets more love in the short subject where those are really kind of labor is love. And I think when people nominate those films they really sort of appreciate how difficult is to do that hand-drawn animation. We're going to go to your calls. I was also struck and I want to mention this cloudy to you with the documentary short subject speech that was given about period end of sentence. It was actually caused a good deal of birth. Yes. Yes. I it was the first time. I think they said something like, I I'm ministrations ever been brought up at the Oscars or something. But yeah. And that was a very worthy win I thought, and it was wonderful to see the enthusiasm of the filmmakers that was one of the other, you know, along with the skin Spike Lee jumping into. Yeah. Into the arms of Samuel Jackson. I mean, it was it. I'm sorry. I mentioned skin though, to the the the woman was absolutely ecstatic. Oh, it was. Yes. It was skin. That's right. It wasn't a sentence. Yes. Both of those. Yeah. Both of them. Yeah. Yeah. No. I thought those were great wins. And it was nice to see a bevy of women accepting an award. That's something. We're very used to seeing lots of men get up there and accept an award. But it was great to see group of women agree and more of your calls. Let's go next to Karen and join us car and you're on the air. Thank you so much. I wanted to concentrate a little bit more on grand closest performance in the wife, and I also saw like Olivia Colman. In the favourite touch. He was excellent. I didn't agree with one of your critics because I taught Lynn closest performance with so restrained in nuanced. It took amazing acting skills to be able to put that together. And I think I resented the one critic from kind of inferring that she's from a more traditional genre from older timeframe, I did feel she deserved the best actress award, I think being able to put together that performance and hold the movie for that length of time. Genius. So I just wanted to point that out. I'm glad you did current and thank you for that call and here's Moore ally. Who who tweets to us? I I did not watch the ceremony, but I was disappointed advice. Only one for makeup. I thought Christian bale was astonishingly good in that movie. But to be fair, it was the only nominated movie, I watched let me get another caller on here. And let's go next to James James. You were not board last night. Like, the caller who said boy long boring. Yeah. Yeah. That's right. I mean, I watch the Oscars to look at who won. What? And why? And so I thought it was the best one ever. I really did thing is I agree with that caller that after should be awarded based on merit. But the corollary to that is you gotta make sure that the academy. Represents you know, all the different all the different. Yeah. Diversity that we have in the country that you know, that you know, when it is based on merit. It's also based on everybody's opinion. You get an honest. You know, you get an honest. I thank you for that. Call James in travel Anderson. I don't know if you have the answer to this. Listener's question, we were talking you about fashion. This listener says what were the buttons Spike Lee, head on his hat and jacket? Do you know Treville? Oh, I don't know. Well, he had a real to rings one said love and one said, hey, I know that the rings are from our original from the do the right thing movie. They were designed by Ruthie Carter who won for Black Panther costume design last night. But they were worn by the character who is killed by police in do the right thing. And he did mention do the right thing when he talked about voting the next presidential always gotta slided, and he's always got a slide it in. But you don't know it anybody know those buttons were this listener, what's the no on his hat or jacket? Well, we'll try to do some research on that. We can find out. In the meantime, we'll take some more of your calls. Andrea joins us. Andrea good morning. Good morning. Thank you so much for taking my call. I wanted to second blind spotting. I thought it was absolutely fantastic. I was curious about being nominated for possibly screenplay. Leave. No trace is another movie that I found out of the blue and was totally for it by I was curious. I thought that these independent films ever being nominated for best picture if they're not campaign for thank you so much. All right. Thank you for the call Tim gruesome. I heard Claudia say, yes. Yeah. Came back. Okay. I didn't hear a say. Yes. I like I yield my time you want to defer to Claudius. Yeah. Do you want to please? Please. I completely agree about leave. No trace that was my second favorite movie of the year after Roma and the director, Debra Granik. Who we at the A film? Critics gave our best director vote to our our word to ask you. Tell me about Roma. Just because it Piques my curiosity. I mean, I really enjoyed. I thought was a first rate film. But there are those who fell and people who I really respect not only critics, but friends and acquaintances who said too much marinating in the in the beginning to the reserves at word boring again following her through I think it was important to establish the kind of work that she did. And make you feel and understand what she did. They have today, but got a lot of criticism. Yes. I heard those complaints as well. I didn't share them. I to me, you know, there's a lot of foreign films that that take a while to marinate, you marinate in and and I don't have a problem with slow paced films necessarily as. You know, if nothing is going on I understand people's concerns. I what he was trying to salvage was the quotidian nature of her life. And and what was going on to me? It was developing the character. It was just you had to adjust to that pace. And I think we've been so trained to a certain kind of pace certainly some movies are frenetic, but you know, action, and I think this was much more contemporary to me it felt more like a a novel unfolding, and because I love to read I don't have a problem with the slow pace. But I did hear those complaints particularly about the I like forty five minutes of that film. Here's a listener who tweets best ceremony of movie awards in a decade. No joke. Also Selma Blair is the essence of arts inspiring society. I guess she made her first public appearance since he had been a now been announced that he was diagnosed with MS she walked the red carpet with a cane. And that was certainly noteworthy. And courageous let me get some more callers on air while we have a little time. Cecile? Thank you for waiting. You're on. Thank you. You know, I always watch the actors 'cause I feel I want to participate in something. That's not you know, I don't watch football. So it's almost like joining the populace. After it was over. And there were some wonderful things in it..

"Musical performances was actually more about like the films themselves as opposed to a host. If the academy decided not to do a host any more. I think I'm okay with that. Let me go back to you travel. Anderson on this. We. Disappointed. The Kevin Hart was not the host. And you must have been fairly elated about Regina king because she won for best. Supporting actress in if Bill street could talk, and I know you did an extensive interview with her. Yeah. You know, regarding the the the whole situation, I think we actually fared better not having a host the pace of the show seemed to feel a lot better. I by our too. I didn't feel like I was in our four. And I think that's a great feeling that you you want your audience to have it seemed to move quickly to me without having somebody come out and do their obligatory stick, and and try to laugh and reflect on what's going on. I am glad that you know, Kevin Hart stepped down in the whole hubbub only because I feel like we would have still been talking about it this whole conversation probably would have been about did he redeem himself from that regarding Regina king. I am. So glad that she's finally getting hurt. Do she has been in this industry for over thirty some odd years doing a lot of background work really a lot of supporting work, really? And while she still has a supporting role in if Beale street could talk I think we really got a chance or rather. I'd say. I think the broader audience got a chance to finally see how fabulous and amazing. She is. And I think her speech showed that and hopefully we get to see her in more weighty more full roles to calm and travel. Would you have liked to have seen I presume Black Panther or black klansman as the winner of the best? Phil Black Panther was my pick only because I feel like we're at a point in the industry where the Oscars who wins the top Oscars sits should signal where we wanna go. And I think Black Panther represented a landmark and represents a landmark moment in our industry, where we see, you know, this film that centers on a uniquely black Africa feature Ristic experience being one of the top grossing movies ever. And it really kind of having a place in the culture, not only now, but for years to come. I think we'll look back on the Oscars of last night in ten fifteen twenty years, and we'll say that we got it wrong with green book. Yeah. I was. Interested in reading some of your comments about our own homeboy hair. Ryan Kugler Oakland native who made fruitvale station, which many people here in the bay. Remember, and you pointed out that that had a million dollar budget, whereas creed which he did afterward had a forty million dollar budget and Black Panther two hundred million dollar budget. Quite quite a difference in those expenses in terms of the budgets. Some winners used the moment to call attention to political and social issues, and I wanted to get into that with our three critics we're talking with travel Anderson. Claudia Puig and Tim, Grayson. And we're going to talk with you and bring you into this many thoughts about winners and losers. You know, I always hate to use word snub about the Oscars. But there were those concerns especially with boots Riley sorry to bother you again. Local Oakland native who made a film that got a good deal the tension, but didn't make it into the best film categories. And you may want to comment on what didn't make it or would didn't win as well as the winners. One of the. Big winners was of course, Alfonso Koran. Here's the accepting the best directing award for Roma. I went to faint academy for recognizing a film center around an indigenous woman, one of the seventy million mystic workers in the world without works. With a work writes a character that historically have relegated in the background in seen him as artiste. Our job is to look where others don't these responsibility. Because much more important in fans when we are being encouraged look away, well that Claudia Puig was one of the more political moments. And there were few of them as there always are at the Oscars, but there weren't necessarily as many I mean or of a different vintage when. For example, the award was accepted by Rami Markle for lobby Malik excuse me for blaming rhapsody. He said something about being an immigrant in about the portrayal of Freddie, Mercury is a gay man and so forth, but it was more muted than it's been in the past. In other words, long soliloquy about some political statement of that sort. Now, they weren't long soliloquies. But I thought they were very human moments. I loved the diversity of what my colleagues have been talking about. I feel exactly the same. I think that I loved hearing foreign languages spoken. And we heard Spanish spoken by Afonso. Glad on by yoga Luna. I think have you ever buy them even to I love. Hearing Sosa spoken by Trevor Noah, I you know, that's never happened before I loved that Rummy Malik spoke of being a first generation American and being a son of immigrants. I mean when you think about that of the four acting winners three where people of color, Regina king. Her Sean Lee, Ann Romney Malik. Then you have quite on, you know, and that film, the fact that it won the best foreign language film was huge for Mexico. Mexico has never won a foreign language film. Oscar, which is kind of shocking when you think about you think maybe now though the wall pay for the wall. We're not even to go there. There were a few comments about, you know, not, you know, tearing down walls and building bridges and thank goodness for that. What about John Lewis coming out with green book and being coming out centerstage talking about how it affected him? Yeah. I think he's, you know, he's a wonderful spokesperson for that era. And you know, as a civil rights hero. It's wonderful always to hear from him. And I'm sure it spoke to him because of you know, being up close and personal with all of what he went through. So it's always wonderful to hear from him. Well, it's not your parents or grandparents Oscars anymore. No, I never saw Jack Nicholson, in fact, I haven't seen him in the last few Oscars. No, Billy, crystal, a very different kind of Oscars, especially in terms of the diversity as you said Claudia and go back to you Tim Gershon on what was one of the biggest surprises of the evening. And that was a Livia Coleman getting an Oscar. Let's hear my cancer watching. Well, if you're not then we'll kind of well done. This is not going to happen again..

"They'd say, the seating arrangement. In the segment. We'll parse the winners and also rans and talk about the ceremonies highlights. We want to hear from you. What's your take on the evening and did the most deserving get there? Do you can join us in our toll free number and that number is eight six six seven three three six seven eight six. Joining us for the hour is travel Anderson, director of culture and entertainment without magazine. Good to have you with us. Welcome to the program. Thank you so much for having me, and we also have Tim gruesome with a senior US critic for screen international and vice president of the Los Angeles film. Critics association. Author of a couple of books Martin Scorsese and ten scenes and film Kraft's screenwriting. Welcome to the program, Tim, Grayson. Thank you for having me. And do we know is Martin Scorsese's the Irishman a remake of the other Irishmen was a new arrangement. I believe I mean, it's based on a true story, but it is its own specific Irishman. Okay. I thought you'd have the truth on that one. And we also have Claudia Puig with us spec. With us on foreign president of the Los Angeles Film Critics association. Claudia welcome. Thank you. Thanks for having me. Glad to have you. Let me begin with you. You've come out along with some other people right to the core of a good deal controversy over the selection of green book, and it seems to be a criticism that has to do with it. Well, first of all an important criticism that maybe Don Stanley's family, the African American character wasn't consulted. And they have described the events the real events of the film was based on his a symphony of lies, but the real criticism to the heart of movie being the best movie is it's a feel-good movie. And it's too much from white point of view. That's what we're hearing on Twitter. And that's what essentially you've said. Yes, that's what I will continue saying till the day. I die. I really feel. Yes. Don Shirley's family. You know, they had a very a valid complaint. But, you know, maybe if the movie had been better, we could you know, somehow, accept this. But it's at best. This is a very conventional formulaic superficial sitcom e cliche to movie and at worst. It's a kind of a, you know, making people feel good about racism and supposedly feel good movie that reduces, you know, a a huge problem that we are still in the thick of to this simple little story. And I am just I find it galling that at one I hear your passion. And yet the argument on the counter side of that is it was entertaining. And not only that but not racism is not dead. But Jim crow is dead. I mean, the laws that existed that made people drink from different water, fountains and sit in the back of the bus and all that that is gone. Well, the laws are, but the attitudes are still there, the feelings might still be relying them. You know, I think we've we've seen a lot of examples Charlottesville being one of them, which you know, was beautifully depicted in in black klansman, which I would have much preferred to see win best picture. I, you know. Yes, I I just this is a to me the the goal of white filmmaker is trying to blithely, you know, depict. The nation of a black man from his own blackness and the way that they did with the fried chicken scenes, and you know, his there is the white guy glibly trying to teach black musician about Aretha Franklin. I all of it just was so cringe inducing, I wonder travel Anderson if you felt differently because you interviewed Octavia Spencer one of the producers of green book, and she had some very favorable things to say, she thought it was very human film. She was glad she signed onto can you? Come. Yeah. I mean, she was happy that she signed onto it and helped it come to fruition. But I mean, I think we also can't forget that she was in the help. So she might have a particular leaning to a certain type of film that doesn't really treat. It's black characters the best way that it could that being said, I mean, I I'd agree with cloudy. I think green book it's not the best film of the year. Sure. It is a solid it checks all the boxes of being something that people might consider to be Oscar worthy inconsiderate to be good. But what it does is it basically play. Cates. White people's feelings around race and around racism. It makes them think that they can somehow teach a black person about their blackness which I kind of resent. I think we see what we've seen with the filmmakers in the ways they've been speaking about the controversy with Dr Don Shirley's family, saying that there are a number of inaccuracies with the film's goes to show that they are kind of, you know, part of the problem when it comes to the ways in which black folks in particular are depicted onscreen, and it looks like we have unanimity on this with our three critics, Tim Gershon, you're in the same corner, aren't you? Yes. Very much. So last week actually for Rolling Stone. I was asked to write a piece about basically the doomsday scenario, which would be if green book wins. What does that mean? And you know last week wrote this, and I still feel this. I reread this morning green book and movie that I think a lot of us who first of all love movies, but also. Do love the Academy Awards and do think that they are important in of talking about creating a canon of what are the quote, unquote, good movies in Hollywood history. I think a lot of us really hoped that we past the era of the driving this daisies and the crashes, and these sorts of movies, which have already been spoken about three eloquently are movies that placate a certain audience and tell that audience year racism is bad. But you know, what it's actually Naza Baz it used to be or it can be better. If we all just hang out more with one another and just get to know each other as people that's a really lovely sentiments. But I think anybody who lives in the real world knows racism is much more complicated than that. And the problem with green book winning is it feels like despite the academy in the last few years to their credit trying to. Diversify and broaden the membership to bring in more voices and the voices that were not being represented in the academy. The hope was a movie like green book would not win best picture anymore. It's a nice movie. It's a fine movie. Whatever it is not the best film of the year. Clearly, but my worry for weeks has been that there is still this contingent. In the academy looks at that movie is being comforting and reassuring and feel good and which dole vote for over much more sort of challenging provocative artistic films. Greenville is easy green because the type of movie that you can kind of recommend to people. You know, it's not going to trouble them very much and the academy should do better. The Cami should not just honor movie like that they should honor movie more challenging than that. So green books when I have to say was not entirely surprising for me last night. But certainly disappointing. We'll just in may have said it best for all of you. When he said, it was the best worst picture since crash, which you have alluded to hear Tim. I'm also struck by the fact that let me read a comment comments are coming in. We'll read them as they come in. Morgan writes, all the best picture nods are worthy films. Green book deserved it as much as any of them. The acting was amazing. I think maybe all in agreement on that. The acting was pretty amazing wasn't Claudia. Yes. The excuse me. The acting was the best thing about it. And particularly Bama Herschel, I felt like big Morton's performance was a he's a really good actor, right? Wasn't one of his best. I felt like it was a little bit of a caricature. And we've seen that you know. Hey, what's the matter? You Italian guy kind of before but him on the sopranos. I think Kevin. Yes. I think he watched a few sopranos preparing for that role. But no, I think the acting was fine. I have no problem with the idea. I think that's the screenplay. That's the bigger issue and one for original screenplay, which was also galling. Well, there's much more to talk about the green book, and let me get a caller on the who wants to say something about Don. Go ahead. Yes. I I had a feeling it was going to win because of the director and the producer. I can't celebrate a lot. If it's ninety nine percent through stuffed in one percent of a lie is a lie. Other point. I wanted to make our to never celebrated told by and accurately, it has to be whitened down in order to be accepted, and then to be celebrated and honored and given award. I find that pretty much the climate of America. I Don I appreciate your call. And thank you for letting us know what you thought and a lot of people thought it was very diverse last night. Let me go to that Tim Grierson as opposed to perhaps the concern of our green book. There are a lot of presenters in what some say was better than having Kevin Hart is the lone host. I don't know how you feel about that as well. But certainly a lot of presenters and some more wars that were taken by people of African American background that had never been taken by African Americans before and women. Yeah. You know, what's funny for me is the first three fourths of the show was really great. And I found really moving on a lot of ways. Ally of the speeches were quite poignant, and quite touching and seem to seize the moments and understand the sort of historical significance. You mentioned this a little bit Michael that Ruthie Carter winning for costume design for Black Panther kind of bugler winning for Black Panther for production, design, and sort of. Them talking about their experiences in the industry in coming to that moments and being on that stage for both of them a lot of difficulty allow hardships along the way and finally getting to that moment was quite touching. I found it quite moving a lot of ways. So most of the show, I think actually the in terms of just the quality of the winners and the quality of their speeches. I felt them were really quite terrific. And I think I don't want to keep harping on green book, but I will say that the caliber of the speeches for green book reverses alive speeches last night. I noticed a contrast for me a lot of the winners. Understood that they are part of a changing landscape in Hollywood that's become a much more diverse group of artists who are being acknowledged and given their chance to shine the stole a lot of work the Hollywood needs to do. But last night felt like two or three good steps in the right direction. And so in terms of whether there is a host or not a host by feeling was I was actually happy not to have a host. I thought the show had a nice energy to it. And also I felt like as opposed to the focus being on the host, and whether or not he or she is funny or good enough as the hosts we actually thought more about the winners and the presenters and the.

"A second serve. So it wasn't just this. Serena lost serve after the footfall and the ankle role. Also that she didn't take advantage of the three match points where push Cuba. Played great on all of them. And what's really interesting your side side note, if you follow a lot of tennis or you just remember the controversy surrounding last year's US women's US Open women's final against. Had Serena held on. She would have faced fourth Sokha who advanced by beating number six to lead us fit Alina six four six one earlier. So now, it's it's Asaka against plus Cuba. The other semi-final will feature to Jim Petrich against unseeded American Daniel. I do think it is worth noting. What was just said there that it wasn't like that push. Give just went on a roll. And it was never close. There were three more match points. She played I it's kind of like the saints had a horrible thing go against Iraq. But you know, what you still had the ball in overtime. You still had a chance to win this thing. She had three more match points. And she couldn't take advantage of the the mental anguish on one side and the fortitude on the other all been a part of games where you're down and you tell yourself. All right. Just go out next drive. Go out do that next point. However, you wanna structure put there's also party. That's wondering what your ordering for lunch in the clubhouse. Right. She mentioned there. Right. The third or fourth quarter of your national championship game against Alabama. Oh my God. Was it was it the training facility for pro day at that point. So people are wondering is this the greatest collapse of all time, it's up there. Because of Serena what was on the line chance of Margaret Court for the for the most titles are grand slams of all time. But a couple of other ones came to mind right away. Nineteen Ninety-three Wimbledon final Yana Nevada was up four one and a point away from going five one in the third set against Steffi Graf, and then it all fell apart. And then there was that notable haunting scene where she was crying on the shoulder of the duchess of whomever. I can't remember who was after she absolutely fell apart and lost. She did come back to win Wimbledon eventually ninety eight and the other one which is the greatest of all time, and I liked to bring up because I worked with her Wimbledon a couple of years ago. American Chanda Rubin was down in the French Open. Third round five love love forty in a third-set match. And you can't get any farther down the down. And then being down five love forty love in the third set. And she came back to win that one in the third set eight six so. Wherever you are. You still got it you still the mantle holder baby. All that said I disagree. So this is worse. Serena's is worse because she's the greatest women's tennis player of all time. Yes, they lost a five one lead serving for the match. So to me that trumps everything. And I say women's tennis player. She can may go down as the greatest tennis player of all time, and maybe one of the greatest athletes. But that that's a fair point context is everything. But by the number of the numbers the numbers. Yes channel I still got you about his friend. You're going to undercut. He's not wrong. I have to admit he's not wrong. What do I always say? Nothing happens in a vacuum. Right context matters considering it was Serena channel did it against Ruben Nevada cheddar, Yana Yana, Nevada again my God Jonah Nevada. God God crazy, by the way. Serena going down and the way she went down is what everybody's talking about. It's brought to you by lows pros in the nose start with Lowes. Go to Lowes for pros dot com for details. The other story what's trending it. Again. These are the two stories we're talking about when you think it's never going to happen. Sometimes it will like the comeback. We just saw from plus go against renew Williams and Mike. What were we saying yesterday? It should be. But it won't be because there's gonna be some stodgy old baseball writer that's gonna go. No. It's never happened. And it never will. Well, guess what? Mariano Rivera ran the table, by the way, congratulations to the complete hall of fame class of twenty thousand nine and major league baseball. But Mariana Rivera who was so singularly. Lee unique in his ability to save games and close games out. For the Yankees is now the first ever player in major league baseball history to go in with a clean sheet. A hundred percent of the vote four hundred twenty five votes up four hundred twenty five votes counted for pretty impressive and closest had been Ken Griffey junior fell three votes short of perfection there and glad it was done. It should have been done. It should have been done with others as well. So I I think everybody realizes that. Unfortunately, the reason it was done is probably the thing that's going to still tick some people off it wasn't done. Because all the writers felt this was the right thing to do most of our analysts and expert thinks it was done because they were too got crushed in today's social media without question, and we'll get into that part of it in a second. But here's Marianas reaction when he realized holy cow. Everyone else can say something. But I'm going to be the only one maybe ever that got in with one hundred percent of the vote. Amazing amazing. I kidding. I couldn't believe it. When they said, they said that. Congratulated me for the hall of fame. And then he says, well, I have another news. There were happening. Unanimous. Oh my God. Everybody went crazy. That's a great reaction unanimous. But it shows you for as much as we talked about this is kind of an arbitrary threshold that the voters had held over here. How much that meant to Marianna to know not only he he knew the he walked off the diamond. And there was that great video yesterday of going out time. Have you see him sobbing into anti shoulder? He realizes, you know, it's all over. But the moment he walked off the mound there. He knew he was walking directly into the hall of fame as a first ballot player who he was going to be but in baseball, there are not a lot of first anymore. So to be the first anything, clearly it is a meaningful thing that had been withheld from as you said a number of deserving guys along the way, so it really shined through there for me again the closest ever before was Ken Griffey junior was off three ballots. He received ninety nine point something percent of the vote. But to the point you were talking about things have changed in the world as we speak. Up with social media, and Tim Kirch and says look that was absolutely part of the reason why Marianna Ribera became the first unanimous hall of Famer, I think in part because social media is such now and all the ballots are public pretty much that if you don't vote for him, you're gonna get clobbered, that's one reason. But the biggest reason is he's the greatest closer of all time. There is not a close second on the character scale. No one's better than him. As far as postseason goes, no pitcher maybe ever has been better than him. And you just put everything together on how he dominated that position. And I'm just so happy that somebody finally got in unanimously, and we don't have to talk about that all the time anymore. It's just great. And to his point about just how good he was as I was what I was watching on major league baseball network when I made the announcement last night. Good to see our old friend, Brian Kenny, they're doing well. And the TS had the greatest stat. I think I've ever heard of Marianna Rivera has pitched in more postseason games than anyone else in baseball history. Ninety six yet man is more likely to walk on the moon twelve of them, then you are to get an earned postseason run off. Marianna Rivera eleven. That is the greatest stat of all stats that may have topped all of those Tom Brady AFC championship appearance stats we found the one that could actually usurp that it's it's incredible. And listen, we are going to talk about ROY halladay and Edgar Martinez and Mike Mussina because they're all their stories, including Rivera's of where they started. Yes in baseball. And how they got to the hall of fame is incredible and quickly. Congratulations as well. To lease Smith herald pain, they were selected in December by the today's game Eric committee. So they're going in as well. But for the four that were voted in the stories are incredible. But because of Mariano over not just being the first unanimous, but how dominant he was as a closer. We ask greatest of all time and a lot of a lot of polls and all that kind of thing. But what I really wanna know today. You can you can check out. Our Twitter echoing go is most dominant at your position all time is Mario. Lavar Rivera the most dominant player at his position over any other player that dominated their position I made or who who else would be there. Because a lot of people will say Jerry Rice is a great football player of all time. Now people are saying Tom Brady, but as far as now dominating your position. Well, there's Aaron Donald. You know, what I mean who who are they who are the the the athletes have or or in singular sports. It would be their sport. Like Serena wrecked or a tiger during his dominant micro Phelps? Michael phelps? Exactly. Right. Would it be Jerry Rice dominating the wide receiver position better than everybody else? Mariano Rivera could he be the most dominant person at his position in the history of sports. He's on a conversation of probably maybe two or three people in that like, Jerry Rice and all series. He seems like the obvious answer. Because he is like when you look at most major receiving categories. He is grossly outlasting everybody. I mean, hell it that's going to be a difficult one. Because so many of the other ones it's a lot harder to quantify for some of these people. We're fortunate in baseball, especially and then something like receiving to have concrete stats. Give us. That's interesting at Golic and wingo it to me Marianna would top that list. Because even even the two times where it didn't go his way in the two thousand four World Series in game four against the Red Sox and the two thousand one World Series are and the two thousand one World Series against the Diamondbacks in game seven when he walked out the Mont, I was completely convinced. There was no chance it was going to go the other way yet. Somehow it did I do wanna give a shout out to Edgar Martinez who got in on the last year of his of his eligibility. And Tim Gershon has again one of the greatest stories about why Edgar Martinez was one of the purest hitters. He's ever seen one of the great hitters that I've ever seen. Scott Bradley told me once this is the best hitter I ever played with. And once Scott, Bradley retired. He went to the video coordinator with the mirrors and said, I want you to put together a tape of how great hitter Edgar is. And the guy put it together with Kenny G playing the trumpet in the background this beautiful smooth music with this beautiful smooth swing and Scott Bradley shows it to his Princeton baseball team and says boys take a look at this. This is the best hitter I've ever seen. Wow. Very cool. Kenny kidding? It's awesome. So smooth Kenny G your swing was Kenny G music, by the way is someone brought this to my attention.
