BONUS: Ranking the 2017 Oscar Nominees

February 26, 2017

Here at Beyond The Box Set, we love the Oscars! So much so, that we’re going totally off-brand with a bonus episode in which we rank all nine of the 2017 Academy Award nominees for Best Picture from worst to best.

Which Best Picture nominee do we really wish had been directed by Steven Spielberg? Which film definitely should have been nominated for Best Achievement in Wigs? And why was one nominee almost ruined by our decision to watch it in a Dutch cinema? Find out in this very special feature-length episode…
