Episode 31: Second Annual Oscar Preview – Best Original Score 2016

It’s Oscar season on The Glenn Butler Podcast Hour Spectacular! Glenn & Scott examine the Best Original Score category, noting the mildly pleasant, the bad, and the ugly, before also giving a brief rundown of the Best Original Song category and Lin-Manuel Miranda’s chances of achieving the coveted MacPEGOT. Along the way the Brothers Butler desperately try to remember which year The Full Monty came out and wonder when exactly white people took over jazz, before finishing with an impassioned rundown of 2016 scores they enjoyed more than any of the Academy’s nominees.
