Talking 1996 Oscars on The Dew Over Podcast

The English Patient

The Dew Over is a weekly podcast that aims to right the wrongs in movie and pop culture history. Host Jamie Dew has assembled a revolving panel of film lovers to talk about all things Oscars! Randomly tackling a given year, the panelists discuss their thoughts on the best picture nominees and try to determine if the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences got it right when they handed out the Oscar for Best Picture.

I was fortunate to be invited on the show to discuss whether or not The English Patient was truly the Best Picture of 1996. As you can imagine, it was a lively discussion as we debated the merits of The English Patient versus the other nominees: Jerry Maguire, Secret & Lies, Fargo, and Shine. Check out the episode and see if you agree with the final verdict.
