On Second Thought is a series in which Kevin is joined by TWO special guests in breaking down another Best Picture nominee not reviewed on the regular show that could have still been the runner-up. In this episode, Kevin speaks with Josh Parham and Lauren LaMagna from Next Best Picture about Roberto Benigni's "Life Is Beautiful," the possible runner-up that lost Best Picture to "Shakespeare in Love" in 1998. This episode includes a review of the film itself, its awards run, and another fun quiz!
