“I was rooting for Spike Lee. I wanted him to win Best Director this year. I loved “The BlacKkKlansman”, it’s so him. It’s a movie only Spike Lee could make,”

-Ann Hornaday, Washington Post Chief Film Critic

Last night’s Oscars telecast generated lots of discussion, so we asked Ann Hornaday, Chief Film Critic for the Washington Post to join us. She thought the show was quite good, felt it didn’t need a host, enjoyed the Queen opening and the Tina Fey, Amy Pohler and Maya Rudolf banter and overall agreed with the results. She did however, have mixed feelings about “The Green Book” as best picture. Ronn missed the host, thought the show was somewhat sterile and lackluster, yet mostly agreed  the right people and films won.
