In this episode, we kick it off by discussing the entertainment news of this year's Oscars. I talked about Whoopi Goldberg who, for about 20 years, was the only black actress in Academy Awards history who had two Oscar nominations to her credit. She was a Best Actress nominee for 1985's The Color Purple...
Screen newcomer Jennifer Lawrence has three Oscar nominations to her credit. Amy Adams has five. Only one Oscar nomination for the late Ruby Dee, Cicely Tyson, Rita Moreno, Rosie Perez and Angela Bassett. That's a deep statement on Hollywood's good script opportunities for black and Hispanic actresses.
Mike Sargent, the fascinating Justine Browning and I will also talk about non-hairy ancient Greeks and take a visit to The Grand Bupadest Hotel.
