“The Envelope,” an audio companion to our awards publication of the same name, will feature interviews with top talent behind the movies and shows you’ve been watching from your living rooms, while also contextualizing how the pandemic — which halted productions, delayed releases or changed strategies altogether across film and TV — will shape the upcoming awards races.
