This is it. We're on the cusp of revolution in the film world. At least, recent guests on WXXI and The Little's Movies and a Microphone podcast hope that's the case.
"It feels like there's something huge coming, or at least starting," guest Jackie McGriff said. "I feel like we're going to have more Black Panthers, more Lady Birds ... stories from people we haven't really heard from."
Movies and a Microphone breaks down this trend, and recaps the 2018 Oscars. We also debate the merits of The Shape of Water, lament some of the biggest snubs, and award our fictional best comedy Oscar.
