Between controversy over best picture nominees, changes to which awards are handed out during commercials and ever-plummeting ratings, this year’s Academy Awards are a hostless mess.

New York Times critic-at-large Wesley Morris helps us sort through the awards noise and see if there are lessons to learn. Plus: It’s our 100th episode! We have cake in the studio and surprise treat for all of you!
