Oscar Talk: Out with the Old, in with the New: Grazer and Crystal Take Over

Oscar Talk: Out with the Old, in with the New: Grazer and Crystal Take Over

In this week’s Oscar Talk, Kris Tapley and I chew over many things, from the AFI FEST debut of Martin Scorsese’s “Hugo” to German Oscar entry “Pina”‘s chances in the doc race and China’s submission Zhang Yimou’s “Flowers of War” landing a year-end release, but mainly we hash out the dramatic changes at the Academy Awards show this week. Gone are Brett Ratner and Eddie Murphy, while AMPAS president Tom Sherak wasted no time accepting “Tower Heist” producer Brian Grazer’s offer to produce. Soon after Billy Crystal tweeted that he was hosting, the Academy confirmed the news–and put the tweet into its official announcement. Onward.

Next week: Steven Spielberg’s “The Adventures of Tintin.”

Here’s the podcast.

It will be his 9th time hosting the event and I would like to see him co-hosting this time with another comedian to bounce off each other. He barely does any movies anymore so that would make it more interesting. It could also be him passing the baton to a younger comedian and set up a new comedian host who can return and who is a Billy Crystal level player.
