In honor of “Black Panther” being nominated for Best Picture, Jim Hill looks back over the past 40 years of Academy Awards history and how superhero movies typically do at the Oscars. Aaron Adams then talks about the genuinely clever way music is used to enhance the emotion / clarify the storytelling in the Marvel Cinematic Universe films.


Over the course of this episode, listeners will learn about:

Why there was pushback from the entertainment community last year when the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Science proposed adding a “Most Popular Motion Picture” category to the Oscars

Which superhero movie – prior to the seven nods that “Marvel’s Black Panther” just received – previously got the largest number of Oscar nominations

Why Marvel’s “Avengers: Infinity War,” Disney’s “Christopher Robin,” & “Solo: A Star Wars Story” all being nominated for Best Visual Effects means that “Ready Player One” or “First Man” will likely take home this year’s FX Oscar

The industry’s continuing struggle to come up with a proper way to describe Disney’s CG reimaginings of “The Jungle Book” and “The Lion King”

How the “Avengers” theme that we all know & love now was gradually revealed / unveiled over the course of that 2012 Joss Whedon film
