Allison Williams - 'Get Out'

Episode Summary

One of the top up-and-coming actresses in the business, who burst onto the scene in 2012 as Marnie on Lena Dunham’s HBO series 'Girls,' talks about emerging from her famous father's shadow, landing her breakout part despite her refusal to do on-screen nudity and holding out for years for the ideal debut film role until Jordan Peele's script came along — as a result of her starring role in NBC's 'Peter Pan Live!,' of all things — and she knew it was the one. But first: Matthew Belloni, The Hollywood Reporter's editorial director, joins Scott to discuss the nominations for the 90th Oscars, Fox Searchlight's awkward post-noms predicament, snubs of the streaming services, how #MeToo could shape the results and why we may be underestimating 'Get Out.'
