Guests: Rod Gustafson and Kerry Bennett, Parentpreviews.com Social media is a-flutter today with Oscar gossip. The Twitter consensus is that John Travolta was creepy, John Legend and Common made everyone weep with their Best Song winner “Glory” from the movie Selma and Best Supporting Actress winner Patricia Arquette’s call for women to be paid equally has generated heated debate.  “I wasn’t really surprised, but I was disappointed,” reflects Gustafson and Bennett about last night’s Oscars.   “These are industry professionals and Birdman just plays right into them. It’s about a washed up actor who’s trying to reignite his career. They \[The Academy] are biased. They really love movies about movies, about people who are in the industry,” says Gustafson.
