Will the gold statue for Best Picture go to the gritty reality-based bomb disarming unit in The Heart Locker or to the most successful 3-D fantasy film of all time? Will the Academy take us Up, Up and away in a beautiful balloon or just Up in the Air? We need An Education and Patt gives us one. She’ll talk us through the Oscar nominated films, the controversy surrounding a certain inappropriate email and she’ll help us understand how these films get nominated and more importantly, how they win. Think the planning involved in your Oscar party is a nightmare? Wait till you hear the details about planning THE party. Patt talks to the two men (some call them the odd couple) responsible for producing Oscar’s big night. One of them danced in spandex at the Oscars twenty years ago—you’ve come a long way Adam!
