Backstage podcast: Oscars 2023 preview with Angela Bassett, Ke Huy Quan and Steven Spielberg | Ents & Arts News
Welcome to a special edition of Backstage, the TV and film podcast from Sky News, recorded in LA.
As the stars begin to arrive for the 2023 Oscars, Sky’s entertainment reporter Claire Gregory, TV and film reviewer Stevie Wong, and Sky’s arts and entertainment correspondent Katie Spencer bring you their predictions for where the chips may fall on film’s biggest and glitziest night.
Which film will pull in the most awards? What do Rihanna and the cast of RRR have up their sleeves for the performances? And what on earth is Will Smith going to be up to on the night?
Plus, we have interviews with nominees Angela Bassett, Ke Huy Quan, Steven Spielberg, The Daniels, Colin Farrell, and Michelle Williams, who tell us the difference an Oscar nod can make.
Backstage will return for a special post-Oscars episode on Monday.
