    Hot off the heels of this year’s Oscars, Allison and Clint are joined by The AV Club‘s Caroline Siede and Consequence of Sound Film Editor Dominick Suzanne-Mayer to talk about the highs, lows, and hard-won jet skis of the 90th Annual Academy Awards.

    Was Jimmy Kimmel the right host for the night? Did the right movies win? What movies should have been nominated in the first place?
