– Carl Weathers / Philip Seymour Hoffman (2:45)
Last week was a saddening one with the news of Carl Weathers passing at the age of 76. He was an absolute legend that we will miss deeply. His role as Apollo Creed is iconic. His work on Happy Gilmore is remarkably funny and engaging. And most recently, he was a revelation in The Mandalorian, on screen and behind the camera. So, we of course wanted to spend some time talking about his amazing career. Last week also marked 10 years since we lost the great Philip Seymour Hoffman. It’s hard to believe. It’s a loss that still stings heavily. So we wanted to talk about that a little bit further as well given some of the conversation out there recently about Hoffman and his career.

– Best Picture Winner Draft (34:12)
With the Oscars on the horizon, we wanted to have some fun talking about previous Best Picture winners. We’ve already done a Top 3 list on the subject, so this time around we wanted to have some fun by doing a draft. As we’ve done previously, we did ten rounds drafting the best “team” of winners we could. In a few days, we’ll release the lists on social media for you all to vote on and determine who won this draft. Are you Team JD or Team Brendan?
