Episode 97 comes a day after the 81st Academy Awards and we have our comments on the highlights and lowpoints of the show. As well we look back at two films that won best picture in the past and one which we feel should have. First up is the first and only film X-rated film to win the big award, Midngiht Cowboy. Second we take a look at Cabaret, the film that took home the award for best director over Francis Ford Copolla’s work on The Godfahter. Finally we review one of Simon’s favorite films Network which despite it numerous Academy Award nominations, lost out to Rocky.
