Close Up

Mar 29 2022 • 30 mins


The 2022 Oscars telecast will go down in history! For the Season 1 finale of Close Up, host Kelley Carter checks in with two Hollywood Reporter pals – ABC News Radio Entertainment correspondent, Jason Nathanson, and Entertainment Director at "The Grio” Cortney Wills to discuss Will Smith, the “slap heard around the world,” and the overshadowed-but-important wins of the night. CODA broke the mold, taking home the Oscar for best picture and one of its stars, Troy Kotsur became the first deaf man to win an acting Oscar. And West Side Story's Arianna DeBose became the first openly queer woman of color to win an acting Oscar. There’s so much learn and even more to celebrate in this season finale of Close Up.
