When the nation’s leaders and our celebrity royalty begin to share more influence “Marble Halls & Silver Screens” shines the spotlights on those elements and players. Writers Sarah Lee, and Brad Slager cover a range of topics that involve the convergence of Politics and Entertainment as they influence our cultural institutions.
This week they discuss:
— The tone-deaf Grammy Awards show
— A curious look at the production history of the top-nominated Oscar film “The Shape of Water”
— The way Hellboy Ron Perlman discards the #MeToo movement when it regards Nikki Haley
— How the military, and the Spanish language, foster masculine hostility
— And whether the Academy Awards should grant a posthumous Oscar for Ronald Reagan
