– Oscar Nominations (1:00)
The Oscar nominations came out last week and there was plenty to talk about regarding the nominations. While most of them were expected, there were a few awesome surprises and a few nominations that scratch your head. Par for the course with the Oscars. However, more so than the nominations themselves, what defined last week more than anything was the wildfire discourse that followed. As a result, in addition to our thoughts on the nominations, we also talk about how turning art into sports has created a toxic hornets nest of fandoms.
– Doug Liman Protest (1:38:21)
Say what you will about Doug Liman or the face he’s remaking Road House, it’s fascinating to see why he’s protesting his own film at SXSW. Simply, he was told by MGM that it would go to theaters, but Amazon decided to just go straight to Prime Video. If Liman is successful and the film ends up in theaters, it could have a massive ripple effect in the industry. Or, at the very least, we’ll start to see more and more protests.
