Marc Maron blasts Academy for investigating co-star Andrea Riseborough's Oscar nomination

Last week, leaders at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), who organise the Oscars announced that they would be conducting a "review of campaign procedures" in light of the English actress's "surprise" nomination for Best Actress. On his WTF podcast on Monday, Riseborough's co-star Maron accused the organisation of investigating the celebrity-led grassroots support for Riseborough because it "threatens" lucrative awards season campaign initiatives. "Apparently, the Academy of Motion Picture Sciences, or whatever the f**k it is, has decided to investigate Andrea Riseborough's grassroots campaign to get her the Oscar nomination.”
