Episode details

Competing Oscar narratives in 2012 made it seem like a wide open year. But Argo emerged the frontrunner when Ben Affleck was surprisingly left off the Best Director list. It was a competitive year and the year Jennifer Lawrence won Best Actress. It was a hard year for me emotionally and looking back reminds me of someone very dear to me who died of an overdose this past year.
