Both are nominated for best director and best picture, and both are unexpected: 'Everything Everywhere All at Once' is praised for combining genres from indie comedy to sci-fi to kung fu. 'Triangle of Sadness' is a dark comedy critique of wealth and power. The interviews are a wild ride, and among our favourites.--------------What do you think of the show? Fill out our survey!
