Movies and a Microphone, Episode 22: Moonlight's Monumental Night + A Look at The Oscar's Super Mega Gaffe

Oscar recap edition with Adam Lubitow of City Newspaper, Jackie McGriff of WXXI and PBS Nerd challenge winner Tim VanAuken.

Summary: Everyone likes an underdog, and most like a twist ending too. We got both last night with MOONLIGHT pulling off a best picture shocker, and it was presented in an utterly bizarre fashion. Depending on who you are, it was either the award show’s most joyous moment…or it’s most heartbreaking.We breakdown this victory for fresh and bold independent filmmaking, talk about the show's super mega gaffe, and much more.
