The Hollywood awards season is heating up, with every week seeing big-name Best Picture contenders going up on marquees across America.

On this very special episode we have a full-length interview with Bruce Davis, an executive director of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for over twenty years, who's got a fascinating new book out that documents the behind-the-scenes history of the golden man himself: Oscar.

Long-time listeners are well aware that host Bruce Miller has been an avid follower of all things Academy Awards since before he was covering the entertainment beat, so the conversation touches on loads of interesting anecdotes and revelations that Bruce Davis unearthed from some of the farthest flung parts of the AMPAS archives.

The suspect in a triple homicide in Southern California who died in a shootout with police Friday is believed to have driven across the country to meet a teenage girl before killing three members of her family. Police say Austin Lee Edwards, 28, also likely set fire to the family’s home in Riverside, California, before leaving with the teenager. The bodies in the home were identified as the girl’s grandparents and mother — Mark Winek, his wife Sharie Winek and their daughter Brooke Winek. Police say Edwards met the girl online and obtained her information by deceiving her with a false identity, known as “catfishing." Riverside police say Edwards previously worked for law enforcement agencies in Virginia.
