I talk to Trudi & Jim on WCSX Detroit all the time about movies. That’s why I was shocked and more than a little bummed when their Producer told me that they were going to talk to Leonard Maltin about the 2016 Oscars instead of me. I, being the Queen of Guilt-Trip Texts, sent him a few notes to acknowledge my hurt feelings and before long, I was on their schedule again. Truthfully, that wasn’t my plan but I’m glad it worked out that way. We had a fantastic conversation about the Oscar nominees and I completely trashed Maltin’s Oscar picks.
For the sake of full disclosure, I should tell you that I had Leonard Maltin confused with Gene Shalit through the whole interview. That might explain why I kept making jokes about his hair. Enjoy!
