Synopsis, Yann’s positive and negative biases, Sam Elliott nominated?, Oscars getting things wrong, best experience at a concert, other versions, spoilers for all of them, defining musicals, SNL, the Awards scene, how the male protagonist dies in multiple versions, last song, a drastic change in scale of shots, first time directing, In Memoriam, spiking the lens, additional music by…, that surreal scene from the 1976 version, tinnitus, our ratings, little chat unrelated to the movie (DUNE & the Academy’s controversial ideas concerning the live broadcast) and two post-Oscar pickups.

The majority of this episode was recorded before the Oscars ceremony, with two post-Oscars pickups at the end.
