99: Can ‘Coda’ Win Best Picture?
This week, Sonny Bunch (The Bulwark), Alyssa Rosenberg (The Washington Post) and Peter Suderman (Reason) discussed the efforts of cultural institutions and their response to Russia’s war on Ukraine and reviewed the best picture-nominated Coda, which just won the best ensemble category at the SAG Awards.
Full disclosure: We taped this week’s episode Monday afternoon and by Monday evening the ground underneath our cons and nons segment had shifted slightly. These are the dangers of podcasting in the midst of a fast-moving conflict. For more on the culture’s efforts to slow Russian aggression, you can read my essay at The Bulwark today.
Make sure to come back to Bulwark+ for this Friday’s bonus episode on Cyrano and the state of the modern musical at the box office. (Spoiler: things look bad for the genre!)
