Alicia Lutes, Managing Editor at Nerdist, discusses the year's biggest Oscar contenders, and the buzz around Netflix's 'Mudbound.'

Lutes discusses what a second win for the streaming service might mean for the future of movies. Netflix took home its very first Oscar last year for its hit documentary, 'White Helmets.' Lutes notes that though streaming services have done well in television, and are gaining more and more acclaim for film, streaming will not impact the future of watching film in theaters long-term.

Lutes also talks about the movie 'Get Out' - one of the year's most talked about films, calling it an 'allegorical masterpiece' that could score writer and director Jordan Peele major wins this awards season.
