THE ACADEMY AWARDS, OSCAR?! WHISKEY TANGO FOXTROT!
This week the crew of Red Six are joined by some of their good friends from the Cinematropolis website. Alexandra Bohannon and Caleb Masters bring their passion of film to the conversation for a variety of fun topics. We get a chance to grill our friends with some hard hitting questions. The Academy Awards have recently added a new category to the lineup with the intent to bring in a younger audience. Will this usher in a new generation for the Academy Awards or mark the beginning of it’s end! Or is there yet another option to bring light back to the hallowed halls?! All this and so much more!
