It’s back to the 80s on Revisiting the Oscars as we revisit the year 1980 and one of the biggest upsets in Oscars history – alongside Reagan, Thatcher, Crispy Pancakes and some classic movies!
On this episode we’re looking at David Lynch’s only Best Picture nominee in ‘The Elephant Man‘, Scorsese and De Niro’s classic non-boxing boxing movie ‘Raging Bull‘, Polanski’s adaptation of Thomas Hardy’s 1800s novel ‘Tess‘, Loretta Lynn biopic ‘Coal Miner’s Daughter‘ and Robert Redford’s debut as a director in ‘Ordinary People‘.
It’s also a busy old postbag as listeners continue to wonder what Mason was up to at New Year at the turn of the millennium – keep those thoughts coming!
