Between controversy over best picture nominees, changes to which awards are handed out during commercials and ever-plummeting ratings, this year's Academy Awards are a hostless mess. That's to say nothing of Hollywood's ongoing problems with representation and harassment. And what about the Grammys?

We have cake in the studio and surprise treat for all of you!
This week's show is brought to you by Mailchimp, Bill.com and the The University of Utah David Eccles School of Business. Here's that photo of Kai, by the way.
