"Comedian and actor Adam Sandler accepted the Mark Twain prize for American humor in Washington at the Kennedy Center on Sunday. I'm Archie's are a letter with the latest. Adam Sandler has a tendency to cast his friends in his movies as those friends pointed out multiple times. Conan O'Brien joked so many of Sandler's Friends were there to pay tribute because when Sandler is not working, they are not working. Drew Barrymore, Dana Carvey, Luis Guzman, Jennifer Aniston and Chris Rock were among those honoring Sandler. Rob Schneider says Sandler's appeal is that he's an everyman. You sense the anger underneath there. And he said it's a frustration because you have frustration. CNN will show the Mark Twain ceremony this coming Sunday.

"What the idea of the movie was about just dreamers, people who aren't giving up on dreams and going and going for it and showing how obsessed you have to be to make it in certain industries and in almost every industry. So anyways, that he finally said I'm in and we got going on it. And it's just like, you can't take your eyes off this guy. He's another appropriately enough hustler. In a way, a Howard ratner who's actually a bit of a good guy, but has the same propulsion and drive and all of that. And I guess I just wonder for you playing him, what did you find the most interesting, the most challenging aspects of that? I loved being a guy who just cared about someone else so much. And just, yeah, he wanted to make a mark for himself because he's been in involved in the NBA for so long and everybody in every job wants to say, you know, I was here too, man. I did a lot of stuff and I hope you noticed it. But I just love the age of my character. The age of where juancho boat cruise where he was at just a young guy who was hungry and I like getting to be somebody for him that was fatherly and brotherly and just like a pro, a man who's been around and just trying to set a guy straight and I enjoyed being that character. And how about the response to this? He put something out on Netflix. It goes not that your movies have had a hard time finding an audience around the world, but it is kind of an instant thing when something goes on Netflix as you found with these earlier things you've done with them. It's in every country except like North Korea, essentially. The reactions that people have had to your work in this movie have been pretty pretty tremendous. Amazing. Couldn't believe it. I would walk around everywhere when that movie came out and just a lot of different people would talk to me about hustle and it was very nice. Very it did something nice. People were baffled about Juan Jo the guy who plays the basketball player in the movie, how great he was. I mean, that's a legitimate, just a pro basketball player who happened to be in an amazing actor and a handsome bastard and I love them. Yeah. All right, so with the last minute, I just a few quick random things. The first thing that comes to mind, if that's all right. Sure. Do you see any thread that runs through all the Adam Sandler's films that we've been here talking about over a period of almost 35 years? Is there anything that

"When I read the movie, he wrote spanglish and I was in the room the first time I read it in his office with Jim and in the room. And I was like, holy shit, it's so meticulous. It's so smart, funny, warm, and my first thought was, oh my God, I don't want to ruin this movie, you know? And I just want to do as good as I can for him. And work just work when you get a movie from a great director or a great writer. You just first thought is, let me just make sure I please that person. Well, two years after that, you and Karachi were back together with click, which just if anybody needs a reminder, a workaholic who finds a remote control that enables them to rewind or fast forward through his life, which has unintended consequences. But a New York magazine guy, I don't know if you saw this a few years ago, went back. And I think over the course of a month, watched every Adam Sandler movie and came away with the reporting, the conclusion that this is the best movie. Forget about whether all critics agree or whatever, but there was something about it that was sort of that he felt. And I guess a lot of people, a number of other well-known people have said this is sort of an underappreciated look at what you can do. And I know you actually said you've got Henry Winkler as your dad. Right. At a time shortly after you've lost your dad. Yeah. You were approaching 40 at that point. You were expecting your first child. It's a very emotional movie on top of being funny. I just wonder if you remember that sort of your mindset at the time. Yeah, yeah, remember caring about that movie very much and what it meant and how time slips away and if you work too much, you miss out on so much and just Jackie was pregnant with our Sadie and when she saw the movie for the first time I was crying and crying and crying because it just you just thought about family, you thought about losing people about not being with each other enough and things going right and left because of just not focusing on the right things. And it was a special movie to us. We loved it. We loved it. We honestly were pretty nuts. Me and my friends and my wife and when we put this stuff together, it means so much to us that we think we think at the time it's the best thing it means a lot to us. Yeah. Click meant a lot to us. So I do remember that. And to me, again, the maybe part of what the New York magazine guy was saying is that it's showing both such great comedic chops and dramatic chops, which maybe they're even more with the next one. Rain over me a year later. Oh yeah, rain over me was a man who's lost his family in 9 11. I'm sure demands of you as an actor. This is Mike binder, the director. David Thompson just, I know I'm mentioning a lot of critics and stuff, which, but I think it's important to note that for all the ones who have given you shit there are a few that have really gone out and said, I think some insightful stuff. David Thompson is one of the most high brow of the critics. He says about that movie quote, Sandler isn't just good.

"Anyways, I watch Magnolia, and I was like, this is the coolest, craziest movie I've ever seen. And I was like, that guy wrote me a movie. Holy shit. And then Paul came over, gave me the script. I read it, and I was in love. I loved him, and I loved the script, and that was that. Do you think there's anything to what he was saying that even in the funniest examples, whether it's like happy Gilmore or other movies, there's sort of part of the comedy as there's this simmering rage. Sure, sure. And he decided to try to bring it out in a dramatic part. Yes, he would say that a lot of tickets. It's at the core it's an Adam Sandler movie, but just wrote it differently. Interesting. Yeah. And you had said, I guess, up to that point, at least, that it was the role that most reminded you of yourself. And then you said your brother and maybe Judd to a degree, is that true? At the time, they would say, what were you doing? In this scene, in that scene, I'd say, you know, I said, my brother was a little quiet and didn't have the greatest social skills growing up. He was very nice, but so this character was like that. And I would say, you know, yeah, I think my brother would do it more like that because I was more of a guy who could talk in a room and be around and shake hands with people. When my brother, when somebody would tell my brother, like the neighbors would come over. And somebody would say, before the door opened, my mother would say this, Scott, make sure you shake mister ferdinando's hand when he comes in the door. And my brother would be like, I need to get really nervous. And then mister ferdinando would come in. And how are you? You give everybody hello and have a whole time. And be going to see my father and all of a sudden I see my brother way too late. It was like ten minutes already into it and I see my brother come up with the hand and go. Mister Fernando would be like, what the hell are you doing? Nice to see you. How do you be like, I just saw you for like ten minutes, but all right? And so anyways, I always felt Barry Egan was that kind of guy who just did in a social situation. He was nervous wreck and so when he fell in love and was trying to talk to the girl he liked, he wasn't smooth and connected to that. And just to show the versatility in one year, the same year the punch drunk love came out was also mister deeds and anger management with you and Jack. So that's one year. And the steadiness of what you've pumped out. Back with drew in

"This movie, we didn't have that much time. It was a low budget, and I kept going Farley quit looking at me in the eyes. I don't want you to do that. We don't have time. It's the end of the day. Will auntie and he would just make me laugh and I think when we edited the scene, it's on my back, maybe 90% of the time, 'cause I just laughing and looking the other way and trying not to ruin the scene. Hilarious. Yeah. Well, 20 years ago, 2000 to was maybe the beginning of a new chapter for you. It's not that in any way you stop making these great comedies, but you also, I think, for the first time, showed us this other side of you where you play sometimes more dramatic, darker characters. This first example was punch drunk love Barry Egan guy raging after being exploited. This is Paul Thomas Anderson. And I want to ask you to talk about it after I read you something that he once said. Quote, I saw this best of Adam Sandler DVD from Saturday Night Live and an amazing thing happened. There's this moment when he's doing this talk show called the Denise show and his ex-girlfriend who's left him and his father calls up and says, what are you doing? You're embarrassing the family. And Adam goes into this fit of rage, screaming at his father. And honest to God, I saw this moment where it appears as if the whites of his eyes turned black and they rolled back in his head. It was like, he just lost his mind. I would play it back over and over and over again. And you can see him kind of snap back to reality. The audience is laughing and it's almost like he finally started to hear them laughing a few seconds later. But after that, he says, I needed to write something for atoms. So I wonder how you first heard from them and how he presented this vision of a very different sort of character than you played up to that point. That's great. I'd never heard that quote. And I love Paul. I don't know. You know how I get to meet Paul? Tom Cruise. I met Tom Cruise a few times. When I think Nicole Kidman hosted Saturday Night Live, Tom Cruise came and we were all young and Cruz wearing a Yankee hat. I remember seeing him going, oh my God, that's Tom Cruise. Holy shit. And he looked up and he was like, hey, what's up? And I was just like, well, yeah, there you go. That's why he's cooler than all of us. I didn't know. I didn't know he was that smooth. And anyways, I loved him. I told him I loved him. And so anyways, I get this call from Tom Cruise. I think I was shooting little Nicky, probably when he was doing Magnolia. I think he was doing Magnolia. And I was shooting a little Nicki and they go Tom Cruise on the phone. I said, hey, man. He goes, hey, I just want to introduce you to a friend of mine who's writing a movie for you. I go, oh, okay. And he goes, this is Paul, and then I'm going to put him on the phone and Paul was doing Magnolia with Tom. And I said, hi, how are you? And he said, hey, I just want to say I really like your stuff. I said, oh, thanks, man. And he goes, and so I'm writing a movie right now for you. And I hope you like it or something like that. And I said, all right, well, good luck. And I am nice to meet you.

"Well, we'll never get that, but still. And the Wii when you're talking about this is you, me, spade, Farley, Schneider, Norm Macdonald, Tim Meadows, Chris Rock. We were just kind of we knew we knew we were pretty good, but we weren't going to be as good as those guys. So some say that you and Farley quit, you've said you guys were fired, what actually happened? It was kind of like them asking us to quit. They were like, you did your thing. There was a new new people at the network, apparently the guy didn't like me and they didn't like Chris and I just thinking of Farley coming in the office. An office made Chris spade and rock all had a little back corner that we wrote all our stuff and then I remember Chris coming in and he's like see working fire. And I was like, oh, I don't know, man. We'll see. He's like, it's true. They don't like us. No more. Anyways, so they kind of said goodbye to us in a nice way Lorne was great to us. He wanted to protect us, but there was some new dude. I can't remember the guy's name, but he didn't like it. Well, in a weird way, it might be the best thing that ever happened to you. Sure, sure. It probably was a good thing I was on the show. I think I was only on for three, three and a half years or something. As a performer, right? But I had a lot of great shots. They let me do my thing. And then, yeah, it's nice to hit and run. Well, let's talk about so pretty, pretty soon after I think you're out in 95. And in 95, was the first of two movies within a year, both in February, Billy Madison and 95, happy Gilmore 96. Both starring you both produced by bob Simon's written by you and Tim early distributed by universal both just instant classics, especially for my generation of people coming up. First, let's start with Billy Madison. A guy forced by his dad to go back to school. In tamra Davis, film Billy Madison. This is, again, 95. I guess there's so many great moments there. But you and Tim wrote it, I guess, while on different coasts. Where did this crazy idea even come from? And then how does that work? I think I had that idea hey, Barry. My buddy Barry Bernard is back there. He produces a lot of our movies too. Hi. Hello, bernardi. So yeah, Billy Madison. I think I had that idea. I thought I always thought it would be funny for a grown man to be in first grade again and because it just started to be neat to sit without the first graders and have to do what they have to do and be a grown up doing it and seeing being stressed out over elementary school. So anyways, me and Tim thought it was a funny idea. It was kind of like roddy day and you feel going back to school and going to college again. So we had a slight ripoff going that we were ripping off Rodney a bit. But anyways, I would pitch it to people. I pitched it to studio as they'd be like, I don't know about that one. And then somehow we wrote this script and it was dead. No one wanted to do it. And then bob simons, who he did problem child. You guys remember problem child? I loved the problem, Charlie when I was a kid.

"Well, in terms of movies, that started a little bit while you right after you got out to LA, I know my siblings and I wore out our VHS of going overboard with you. You did? 89. That's terrible. And I saw you sort of distance yourself from that point. I have not distanced. I just saying you don't have to see it. Well, the only reason I want to talk about it though is because another person in that was you could say the Adam Sandler of 50 years earlier, Milton Berle. Uncle milty was in that. I did a scene with Milton barrel. I was 22, pretty cool story. I went on stage at the improv, maybe it was like my fourth time. I swear to God, that's how easy I thought life was going to be. I got off stage. These two people came up to me Amanda and a woman, they said, you want to, that was funny. I said, oh, thanks. They said, do you want to star in a movie? I go, yeah. And they go, okay, well, we're doing a movie. You want to be the star of it. I said, absolutely. And they said, we start shooting next week. I said, okay. And they said, we're going on a cruise ship. And we're going to shoot on the cruise ship, I go, yeah, yeah, all right, let's do it. So I went home that night. And Judd Apatow came over, and I said, oh, by the way, I'm doing a movie. He said, what do you mean? I said, some people are doing a movie. They asked me to be in it. He said, what's the part? I said, I don't know. I'm the star. And he goes, what's it about? I go, I don't know what's on a cruise ship. And he goes, is there a script? I go, I didn't ask. And then literally went on the boat. Went on a cruise ship. They would hand me pages every day. I'd be like, okay, that sounds good. Go say those words, you got it. And we had fun. We all fell in love with it. I met a lot of great people there. Got to do a scene with uncle milty and Bert young was in it. And I got to know Bert young a little bit, and then a lot of great actors are happy to be in it. Like Billy Zane was in it. Man, Billy bob was in it. Yeah, yeah. It was crazy. Early days. Really, when we were all good-looking back then. And then it's back to back to stand up, but I wonder if you can connect the dots. I've heard that Dennis Miller may have been the one who first said to Lauren. You got to see this guy? Yes, yes. Is he like me? Then it's like me. Dennis saw me. He thought I was funny. I was like 21. And he was just great to me and he was friends with me in spade and Schneider. We all loved him. And he called Lorne up and said, you got to see this kid. He used to call me Sandman. Then it should be the Sandman. Is he the one that started that? They used to call me that when I was a kid. When I was a kid, but then it used to come to Sandman, here comes The Sandman. And he told Lauren, you should watch this kid he's funny. And Lauren saw me in Chicago with the same night as me, Chris Rock, and three other comedians that were better than us. And for some reason, Lorne hired me and Chris and so there wasn't like an 8 H studio 8 H audition. We didn't get to do that.

Steve Deace: Dr. Fauci Knew Vaccines Take Years to Perfect
"In the early days of lockdown Fauci didn't interview with Mark Zuckerberg and Zuckerberg said hey how fast can we get a vaccine How fast can we get one out here And Fauci went into some of the history of failed vaccine efforts So the HIV vaccine attempts and other things they did that actually there's two kinds of vaccines perfect and leaky And the perfect vaccine is the one that inoculates you That's the dozen or so vaccine cocktail They do and I got what we were kids to go to public school all right Yeah You wouldn't get this stuff if you got these shots right So you wouldn't spread it to other people What Fauci warned of was a leaky vaccine And if you get a leaky vaccine meaning that it is something that for a while may treat may or may not treat a serious symptomology but it won't stop the spread then eventually what ends up happening is it produces inferior antibodies inside your body and so it appears that the vaccine or the virus is getting stronger really it's your immune system is weaker It's not that the virus is stronger It's just the virus is now Adam Sandler in Billy Madison or where he is dunking on fourth graders The antibody produces is weaker And that's what Fauci warned him about And he said does Zuckerberg that's why it takes years to put one of these vaccines out because we have to test to make sure that it is a perfect vaccine that it stops the spread that it doesn't just bind the virus but it blocks it And that's not what they did here And that's where you get into things like antibody dependent enhancement where the more you jab the more effect

"Yeah, it's funny because I feel like that's a canard now, right? It's like a trope that every Judd Apatow movie would be significantly better if you just cut out the 20 minutes that we all know he doesn't need in it. And on the other hand, that's kind of what makes him for lack of a better word in O tour. You know, he's like, it's actually important to me to make these maximalist personal broad comedies. No one's really ever done that. This movie, funny people in particular reminds me a lot of outbreaks movies, or excuse me, albrecht's movies, which are often very thinly veiled semi autobiographical dramedies where the laughs are very funny, but their movies themselves you wouldn't describe as purely funny. Like, defending your life has a lot of great jokes, but it's definitely about being dead. And funny people is about a guy who's dying. You know, who's been, who has a terminal who has a terminal diagnosis. And what he does in the aftermath of that. And some of it really doesn't work, as you say, and it is long. Most Judd Apatow movies are long. But it's a real good performance from him. It's a really good ensemble of actors. And it's actually the movie that I think is the appetite movie that's aging the best. You know, it's actually, it's the 25th anniversary, excuse me, it's the 15th anniversary of knocked up this week. Jesus, which is fucked up. I know. We're really old. But funny people is the one that I'm most curious to return to. I didn't return to it for this podcast. But maybe I will as soon as we're done recording. Well, rob, this was fun. Do you feel, do you feel like we did justice to the Adam Sandler experience? I'd like to think that we did. Let me ask you one last question. What is my sons or 11 and 9? Okay. I don't know if I told you this. My wife put on defending your life and tried to get them in a defending your life and after ten minutes, they were like, no, I think the 9 year old was like this movie is about death, hell no. What is setting aside hotel Transylvania, which they don't really associate with him at all. What is the ideal first Adam Sandler movie for a kid that will not immediately corrupt them? When can you show a child happy Gilmore? This is a tough onboarding experience. I was 13 when I saw it. You turned out all right. Did I? Yeah. What about like a 51st dates? Yeah, I think that's the move. Yeah. But like Rob Schneider's in it, you know what I mean? Like there's jokes, there's gags. There's stuff that would amuse them and it wouldn't be too corrupt. On 11 at 11, you could show an 11 year old Billy Madison. Come on. I saw when I was 11, it was great. Just formative. Not in a good way, though. I have to admit. We put on space balls once. And it's like, this isn't really a problem for Adam Sandler's era, but like 80s PG movies are not 2020s PG movies. Interesting. Right? And what is happy Gilmore rated? Yes. It was PG, and that's right. I think they finally, they figured it out by the time of Adam Sandler. What's actually appropriate, but I'm having a hard time imagining my son's processing the Billy Madison scene where she strips every time he gets a question right, et cetera. I don't want to have these fucking conversations. That's a fair point. But think about how great.

"Is there a Sandler movie that you don't necessarily love, but that you're like, this was a hard cut, it's an honorable mention. You know, you did mention the ridiculous 6 in the sweet hog. That's not it. Joke. I assume that's not it. Is there what's on the outside? What's an honorable mention for you? I think the last movie we should probably talk about is funny people. Which was on the cusp for me. That's from 2009. And that's an interesting piece of connective tissue. I'm mulling over what happens if he's not in punch drunk love, conundrum. Like if he's never seen as serious and funny people was the moment. Like he's playing himself, right? He's not his character is not Adam Sandler, but you're to understand that movie as being it's Adam Sandler, you know, reckoning over the wreckage he's caused in his personal life like making these dumb comedies and he hates himself. And it's like, it's very meta in that way. This movie actually is, I think, 6 hours long, like it's just a limited series. I remember being in the theater and being like, I'm enjoying this. This is a huge fucking law movie. You know, as a Judd, it's not top tier Judd Apatow for me, the funniest person in funny people by far is M and M. I rewatched the scene where Eminem yells at Ray Romano. Periodically. But I think this movie is an important piece of the puzzle of Adam Sandler as a more complicated figure as a possible dramatic actor. It's not his best movie. It's not his best performance, but I think that that did, you know, this is in the midst of the Judd Apatow sort of comedy revolution. And this is him, and I'm Sandler sort of showing that he can hang with Seth Rogen at all. And he can handle it. And I do think that this was important for him getting. I mean, pretty soon thereafter, he gets the Netflix, right? I think this was an important movie for him and the way people saw him. And it sort of re complicated him as this very goofy, lovable, beloved figure, but he also has this darkness or this sadness or this self loathing to him. And the other thing I keep coming back to is the fact that I do love so much that he is like a real-life family man. You know, and the stories about his daughters and about his wife in 100% fresh and that comedy special or part of why I love it so much and sort of mapping the fact that I know him I think I know him to be like this wonderful off camera person and I'm so glad that you confirmed that a little bit too. But mapping that onto funny people, you know, where he's alone, you know, and he basically tries to break up this family to get back with his ex-girlfriend or whatever the plot of that movie is. There's just a lot of complicating factors to that movie that makes it really fascinating and really important to sort of his filmography without ever quite working as a 9 hour movie..

"By Riot Games and partnership with the 40s production arcane is the winner of 9 Annie awards, the most of any TV series or film this year. It's also now up for your Emmy consideration and IGN calls it the best animated series of the year that quote breaks new ground for what's possible in TV animation. You want to do top 5s, anything else you want to say about Sandler? I would like to make one argument in defense of the ridiculous 6, which I believe to be the first Netflix movie. If I remember this, I think it was 2015, it was the first Netflix movie. It is overall very bad. It is probably, I don't think you can even say it aged poorly. I think it arrived poorly. It's like the Super Bowl of racial stereotypes. Like I seem to recall, there was like, there was a huge controversy. There was a revolt of extras about the way it was portraying Native Americans in general. This is a bad movie that's probably worth skipping, except for the fact that for the first half of the movie, they're like running around in the old west, like whatever's happened. We got to get to sweet hog rock. All we gotta do is get to sweet hog rock. We'll meet up at sweet hogwart and they get this sweet hog rock and it's just shaped like a giant penis. And somebody says, wow, that's a sweetheart. It's the funniest shit. That is the second my second favorite line after peeing your pants at school. That's Miles Davis. Just watch the ridiculous 6 for that one line and then bail. That is my advice. You just spoiled the joke. I'm sorry. I did. I did. I did this this movie is like 8 years old and nobody should watch it. That's the thing is even in the most dire of Sandler projects. You usually get a sweet hog here and there. Yes, exactly. The sweet hog rock line always appears somewhere. Even in sandy Wexler or whatever. Okay, here's your time to talk about Sandler, the singer, some more. What's your number 5 movie? Number 5, I'm going the wedding singer. I think we need a representation for the RomCom Sandler. I think that Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore are one of the better matched energy RomCom couples in history. Like just the lovable goofiness, I just, they just work perfectly together. As I say, I love him, he's perfectly cast as a wedding singer. He's at the exact right level of aptitude and prestige just.

"An Oscar. That was me, actually. That was unfortunate, rob that you did that. But you know, I would say that Sandler handled it well 'cause he's got 30 plus years of experience of Bros running up on him saying you're the best bro but he did not seem very interested in that line of conversation. And he was just like, that's very nice, but that's not really why I do it. You know what I mean? And even in the promotion of that movie, I didn't feel like he was working the awards circuit hard. He was doing the stuff. You know, he would do the actor on actor conversations, but he's actually quite I don't want to say withdrawn, but he doesn't seek a claim in the same way or publicity. No. I've heard historically, he doesn't love the press, which is one of the reasons why he often does interviews with safe partners. But, you know, he has a lot to protect, obviously. And I think he got a lot of bad reviews at the beginning of his career. And it's a real testimony to something that I've talked about many, many times, which is that most comedies, and over the last 60 years are made for people who are under 25 years old, and most people who review comedies in America are over 25 years old. And we have this historical bizarre critical disconnect between the criticism about comedy and the actual relationship that the audience has to it. Sandler might be the Pinnacle example of this. And that'll come to the four when we talk about this. And I've thought about this myself, you know, I think I've hopefully forged a little bit of a reputation for myself as a stuck up pretentious movie asshole. Thanks, rob. But if I saw Billy Madison today, how would I feel about it? For the first time. What you would feel is that if peeing your pants is cool, then I'm Miles Davis is the funniest line in a movie in either of our lifetimes. I think when you were talking about the grandmas of the Sandler over, I was thinking of that woman in Billy Madison that elderly laid it out to that woman. Yes. This.

"In that moment, it seemed like he was more satisfied just to make dumb movies that everybody loved, even if critics hated them. And that sort of carried through the Netflix years, of course. But I had never thought about that. They never made like a Schmidt's gay movie, right? That would have been the easiest thing in the world to do, and that's a conscious choice to not do that. That's really interesting. Well, I always thought he was an expert character creator, but not an expert sketch creator. Opera man, Cajun boy, those were sitting at the desk figures, you know? Canteen boys. Or Cajun man in canteen, boy. I mixed up my two Sandler characters. Those weren't deeply memorable sketches like when Madonna appeared on Wayne's world. You know what I mean? You're like, this could have been a movie unto itself. It felt very weirdly cinematic for Saturday Night Live, but Sandler wasn't about that. He was about like the sheer force of his Sandler Ness. You know, his charisma. It was not about the idea. And so it's probably for the best. I think a little bit of it is the Stefan issue too, where hater and mulaney were pushed to make a Stefan movie and they never did in part because it was a one no joke. It's kind of a one no joke. It's an incredible note. It's one of the most beautifully sung notes in SNL history. But it's only one note. And so I'm glad that he did that. He leaned into, I guess, original storytelling. It's kind of weird to describe Billy Madison as a responsibility. But it is. As you say, trying to describe the water boy, you know, it's just a plot beat. It's just like, what? None of this may any sense. I think of also Adam Sandler and Chris Rock is like, they were not as successful on SNL as it seems now. You remember them as superstars, but relative to their success certainly, they were both failures. On SNL, like they both left, you know, I Norm Macdonald this way as well, almost. You know, it's the prestige that they have now and the respect as superstars that they have now. I think you remember it as they were huge on SNL and everyone loved them. But I don't think that's necessarily true. Yeah, I agree with you. It's interesting too because he was appearing in movies while he was still on SNL in a way that got my attention before Billy Madison. He was in coneheads in 1993, which is of course a Lorne Michaels production. And then he was an airheads in 1994, which is, I feel like this has got to be a Sean and rob movie. You must be an era has fan. It's such a music movie. Yeah, when they snuff out, sniff out like the trader because they ask like, which Van Halen, which version of that, yes, that is absolutely the ur Robin Sean movie. I agree with you. I like that movie a lot..

"I didn't know that watch out Herman Gomez was also an NBA player. I thought he was just like an actor who could convincingly be in. So I was impressed when I learned that as well. Like they got like NBA players who could actually act in this movie. I agree with you that it's more of a drama, like what's funny about it is it's Adam Sandler, right? And not that he's doing funny Adam Sandler things. It's just everything that you project on to Adam Sandler, you know, and that sort of gruff down on his luck, but everybody loves him, but he's sort of a loser, sort of role in the cliched sports movie, but you've seen 15, 20, 25 Adam Sandler films, like you're waiting for him to blow up. Like he sort of semi blows up a few times, but never really, and like any kind of happy Gilmore way. But yeah, it's a pretty good sports movie where the draw is like, it's Adam Sandler in a pretty good sports movie. You know, it's not his best work on Netflix, but it's far from his worst, and it's serious, but what makes it funny is just that it's him at all, trying to be serious and succeeding. Yeah, I thought so too. I mean, he's obviously evolved quite a bit as a dramatic actor, which we'll talk about a lot in this episode. I thought this performance was interesting because even more so than your eye cut gems, your myer with stories, like there are no Sandler tricks in this performance whatsoever. No mugging, no singing, no ridiculousness, even when he yells, it feels like it's born of like a place of acting and not a place of SNL skit performance. And so in that way, I thought it was pretty fascinating. I think it's kind of interesting that as he gets older, I wouldn't have guessed 20 years ago that he would have been somebody who thought it was important to get into this kind of performance work. But I think he's a little bit more curious and a little smarter, frankly, than people give him credit for. I like that he makes movies like this. Where do you stand? Would you rather he just be making dumb comedies at this point? Do you like that he is experimenting with form? I think that my most loved movies of his are his dumb comedies, but most of them are older. You know, I love his old dumb comedies a little more than his new sort of prestige plays. But I love both of those more than I love his newer dumb comedies, right? I don't hate any of the Netflix movies, even the ones that everybody else seems to hate, you know, they all have their moments, you know, and they're all just the platonic ideal. He sort of invented the Netflix movie. Where it's just, it's not the best movie you're ever gonna see, you know, but it's just a person you like in a movie format that you recognize. And you can devote between 30 and 60% of your attention to it and be totally fine. Like he sort of invented that for better or for worse, you know, like Netflix movies. The rise and fall of the prestige that Netflix has is very interesting. He was the first one, right? To really go all in on Netflix and have Netflix go all in on him. You know, I sort of, I don't remember when that was parallel to House of Cards, right?.

"Sandman, comedy legend Adam Sandler has a new movie out on Netflix, a little different from your standard Netflix Sandler movie. This one is set in the world of the NBA and it's quite serious, so we're talking Sandler movies today and joining me to do so is another legend of the 1990s. It's the host of 60 songs that explain the 90s, the ringer's rob part fellow, what's up, rob? Yo, I am so delighted to be here. I'll talk about The Sandman as you say with anyone at any time, but you especially. So this is nowhere I'd rather be. No one I'd rather be talking about. You're very gentle with me right now. That's sort of the opposite of Sandler. I'm trying to build up to it, right? I'm trying to pace myself, just starting quiet and just building up into a rage. That's The Sandman's way of things. Is it not? Yeah, hopefully by the time we get to our number one Adam Sandler movies will be screaming loudly at each other with all destroying a miniature golf course. Before we get into the movies that we know we love, let's talk about hustle a little bit. So hustle, we're dropping this on a Wednesday premieres on a Wednesday. This is, I want to say it's the 8th Adam Sandler Netflix film, which is just wild to me. And obviously he has retained, I don't know, a kind of popularity kind of relevance by being early on the Netflix curve. They kind of bought out his time very early on. And despite the varying quality of the movies he's having, Netflix, he's been present in our lives despite many of the comedy legends of his generation kind of falling by the wayside as movie stars. Hustles a little different, as I said, directed by Jeremy zaiger and written by Taylor matern and will fetters. And it's a movie about a down on his luck, basketball scout, guy who works for the Philadelphia 76ers named Stanley sugarman, and he discovers this Euro talent this year of wonder on the streets of is it Spain where he discovers him? I believe so, yes. And that person is played by one show hernan Gomez, the actual NBA player who's not bad in this film, and he brings the phenom back to the U.S...

We'd have to play it off like it didn't happen like, no, no, I think the tea's ready. My wife one time hit me in the face with a combo platter. She would be with the vagina to the mouth up high. At the very same time, hit me in the neck with the other she came up high and down low at the very same time, like I don't know it happened one time at 20 years just fucking bam in the face. One in the neck, fucking hit me hard, it was like the perfect storm. We don't know what she was eating that day, but whatever the pocket was, she got me good. I gotta say literally felt like somebody opened the door on a fucking airplane. Debris in the air in front of you. Other passengers were floating through my fucking room. Oxygen mask dropped down and I fucking took it like I did with someone else saw it. I was like, I was fucking incredible. And then I hear the ghosts go. I saw that shit. Oh, my God.

The Crazy Lives of Fay Wray and Robert Riskin
"Fay ray, and the screenwriter Robert riskin, they were an early Hollywood power couple. They each had a very lasting legacy in that town this town. Ray fay ray more people know she's more easily, you know, in definable. She she's the most famous scream queen of them all if you want to get technical. And Robert riskin probably considered the father of the romantic comedy. So they were quite a couple. I mean, men loved fay ray before she was with risking. She was married to a guy named John monk Saunders who was a Rhodes scholar who wrote the story for the first best picture Oscar winner wings, he ended up taking all of her fucking money and kidnapping their daughter. Jesus, later fay ray has a love affair with the playwright Clifford O debts. He's no slouch. And then she starred on stage opposite Archibald leech, and he fell head over heels in love with her, and this was before he changed his name to Cary Grant. Gary Cooper was hot and bought all the Fay Wray. They were in a few films together. But Robert risking a little less recognizable, but like I said, he penned great stuff. He wrote the Frank Capra movies meet John Doe, mister deeds goes to town and it happened one night with Claudette Colbert and Clark Gable. He actually invented the term doodle for mister deeds. Actually, when Adam Sandler remade mister deeds, he kept enough of the original script to give Robert riskin a screen credit. It's pretty cool. But brisket was no slouch himself. He had a lot of pussy after him. Loretta Young Carol Lombard, who Clark Gable went bananas for and when he died, still wanted to be buried next to her, even though they hadn't been together for years and Clark cable had remarried after her. Somebody wild stories when it comes to Hollywood and love lives and who dies and lives next to someone so and eternity at this funeral. I mean, at this graveyard it's insane.

"I like that movie too. It's like a memento type movie. Yeah you know where she hot of memento type is it is not issue reoccurring thing. She is not scarring herself to remember what happened to him. Mental type movie. If you share the same thing whether short term memory loss but otherwise the movies have no similarity that's the one similarity they have. But it's not a memento like movie plot device. I feel so bad for like horribly bad that you can make these two movies comparison. She's never seen memento. She doesn't know any different. I love this movie. Because it's so adam sandler. Obviously it's still has a lot of funny moments in. Its quirky and weird. But i think it's really neat. That adam sandler plays a role where he is very in love with this woman even though she has this problem and he's continuously like pursuing her regardless of what's going on obviously in the beginning it takes a little bit of time to figure this thing out but after that he pursues her producer producer and then at the. The payoff is at the end of the movie for me. Spoilers where he makes the videotape. And you can see the videotape of her watching it over and over again of what she's lived through her entire life basic web to like a child and i weep like a child to this day over that one scene. Because i think it's really. Here's your kids. Yeah she's like what that's isn't that insane. Like think about that. If it was a real thing the real thing. Though i think people do really do there are people that really do have seen mental. Yeah da thank you. Okay all right. My number eight is what i think is going to piss everybody off jerry off. We're waiting billy. Madison is my number eight. That's way way down the list man. Yeah i mean. I'm not gonna talk much about it because i'm sure you guys are gonna hide it higher. It's just for me. There's a lot of better. Adam sandler movies. I liked the movie. I love the movie. it's quotable but to me. it's just it's not one of my favorite of his. It doesn't i don't feel like it has the story. It's more of a story so outlandish comedy that's fine. We can talk about now hour later. I'm sure could be higher on me in jerry's list but this this movie happened right after airheads. Which was this kind of. It was his breakout. Yes i remember. I remember seeing it in the movie theater and just falling in love with it. I mean because nothing. Nobody's ever done anything like this scene isn't hilarious. It's legit hilarious but that's all it is. Yeah i agree with you. there's not much there. I mean chris. Farley is great but anyway and it has so quotable. It's one of his most portable movies but for me. There's too many better movies. So that's my number. Eight mine is the longest yard. Oh yeah the The old Burt reynolds bernal's chris rock. Nellie steve austin i keep going and picking remember them but no i remember loving this movie and i have almost no memory of other than the fact that that is the time that they're making all those sports movies and isn't there one. There's one part in that movie. Where does big giant linemen. I think he just passed away. Actually the guy who played in he has all isn't that that wasn't tiny from friday but he he was in quite a few of adam sandler's movies he big guy big black man and he has that line where he says little marco talk about michael jackson.

Shocking Insight Into Adam Sandler's 'Parties'
"I heard something from one of my patrons the other day that blew my mind. I didn't hear this. He asked me if I'd ever heard it. I said, no, he goes, well, I got to tell you a story. I can't use his name. Because he's a really serious guy. He's very straight, you know, like he's not one of these idiots who's in the scene. He doesn't even live in California. He's outside of Los Angeles, but he works in showbiz. I said, tell me. So don't take this as gospel, but let your mind have some fun. I mean, we can report rumors, so it patron who, like I said, I don't know him to lie to me. He's got a good friend who works in showbiz, but behind the scenes. I don't know if he's a set designer or a sound guy, props guy. I don't know. He's something. And he's worked a lot. You know, does what? So he got work on an Adam Sandler movie some time ago, and this is a guy who, like I said, doesn't live in LA, not into the scene. He's married happily married. So he's working on a Sandler film. I'm not sure which one probably one of the fucking grown-up movies, I don't know. How many of you have been 17, 18? And one day, as is apparently the custom with Adam Sandler, he threw a big party, and apparently he does this. And according to this guy, who got a hold of me, Adam likes to throw a sex party when the movies are going on. I don't know if it's at the end of the movie or in the middle. I don't know. Maybe it's at the beginning. I don't know. You know, he gets hookers and all the guys saddle up with a chick and they don't go have fun. All the guys, all capital letters. And this one guy on the crew, well, he didn't want to do it because, like I said, happily married guy. Or maybe religious. Whatever. But he said, no, and it hurt him. Sandler allegedly got rid of him. And he didn't get to work on a sand the movie again, which is weird because Sandler usually uses all the same people. He keeps it in the family. I don't know, look, listen, I don't know. I don't know what's worse. The idea that Sandler got rid of the guy or the thought of guys like Sandler Kevin James or Nick Schwartz and a Rob Schneider having sex with a hooker. Pick your poison.

I, think last year we had a conversation like this to write maybe around the release of mid Samara about what what's going on with horror movies. What are horror movies? Now the world has gotten certainly more horrifying in the last twelve months. We had a conversation like this, but before we get into you. Know Lists and the Adam Sandler movie. I kinda wanted to take your temperature on where you think this genre is at right now. Well, I don't know that we can say for sure because I'm not sure what her movies were not getting, right? I don't know what movies maybe delayed release that didn't get the festival bump that they needed from south by or or any of the summer festivals that might have happened So it's hard to say but I I would say that.

There's like we psychologically grant ourselves the right to do this at this period, which is pretty pretty weird. Come on honey. It's early. October. Let's watch. Torn to pieces. Yeah anyhow. What about from the from the year so far in terms of the movies that have been released have there been any that you actually liked from the Shawna Yeah I've seen a couple of things on demand that I thought were pretty cool. Some of them were like late nineteen things that finally got released this year I think that you and I. were. Really looking forward to seeing a bunch of stuff in Texas at. South by which was the OH maybe we'll go to Austin rate like right as quarantine was starting to become really apparent as the magnitude of the situation was dawning on us. So I I really don't know if you've seen anything in twenty twenty that you think is like really stellar. You know. I wanted to ask from hosts. Really Right. Y-. Right. So I think that that's I think that's where we should take this conversation which is a couple years ago. I. Did this Horror Oscars Gimmick on the site where I picked my favorite. What I thought was the best horror movie of every year since Nineteen, seventy, nine and I like the idea of continuing to hand out that award every year and so looking at kind of what would be the five contenders from each year but as you say Most of the movies of that are sort of noisy studio movies have been pushed back candyman for example, Nia Costa's remake reimagining of that classic is not coming out now until next year that's a bummer i. a lot of people were looking forward to it. I was looking forward to it. We got a few things. You know we got we got the invisible man we got relic There have been a couple of movies on shudder shudder originals, one of which I'll talk about later in the show. But like blood quantum, which I talked about on the show Z, the Beach House that I think are all worth recommending but I wouldn't say are on the order of. Hereditary or or something like that. You know that we haven't had a movie like that. That feels like it's a little bit of a moment. A little bit of a movement announces a new filmmaker in a loud and noisy way I. Don't know you know. Host is really interesting. I think the last time the show is just you and I talked about we talked about host and it kind of feels like it has has the belt for horror movies in twenty twenty if only by circumstance. Yeah I think you mentioned all those other like invisible man etc I would the lodge in there I would throw the rental and they're like. They were really there is some pretty solid doubles to left, but the host was the one where I was just like a watch it again I'm going to recommend it's all my friends I'm going to try and get people who don't ordinarily watch horror movies to check it out, and especially if we're talking about twenty twenty horror movies, it is a movie that only have been made this year. Do you think that that's a movie that's going to stand the test of time or only resonating with people because we're all looking at screens all day. No I think it will I think it's going to be a good time capsule movie for sure. But I think that there are some things that it does and you talked about this with Alex Ross Perry, which was an amazing conversation. If people haven't checked it out and I, think his some of the stuff he said towards the end of your conversation will influence what we're about to talk about today. But I think that you guys talked a little bit about the technology and the the storytelling that it employs and how it seems to be like a step for like an evolution in what could we do with? The collective psychology of what's going on with people and that's what's awesome about her movies is that I feel like unlike any other genre really taps into how people are feeling at any given time about certain things it has at least that capacity.
The Big Picture
What makes a good horror film in 2020?
"Going on with horror movies. What are horror movies? Now the world has gotten certainly more horrifying in the last twelve months. We had a conversation like this, but before we get into you. Know Lists and the Adam Sandler movie. I kinda wanted to take your temperature on where you think this genre is at right now. Well, I don't know that we can say for sure because I'm not sure what her movies were not getting, right? I don't know what movies maybe delayed release that didn't get the festival bump that they needed from south by or or any of the summer festivals that might have happened So it's hard to say but I I would say that. I find my appetite for her pretty much the same as it was any other year. I don't necessarily find as festive outside I. Don't know the for one thing in Los Angeles. It's ninety degree. So doesn't really feel like Halloween but for another I, just you know everybody's inside. So I don't think the decorations of really started to go up yet I. Don't know that I don't really spend a lot of time in the Candy Aisle at my age you know what I mean what do you think? Well, I know you're costume guy. No you'd like to dress up just on any. Oh Wednesday. So this must be strange for you to not be able to dress up as a giant clown and run the streets. Pharaoh that's me. Yeah I I agree I think it's a little bit strange to not feel the Halloween and the Halloween season but I don't necessarily associate horror just with Halloween. It's definitely a twelve month a year John Reform me and it's this month a year. History to Halloween is when we are allowed to watch nothing but her for like a month and not seemed like we should be committed. Yes. I appreciate my wife creating a dispensation for me to be able to watch some of the most vile things imaginable on film. I several consecutive days on quite a run right now catching up on stuff seeing stuff for the first time. A lot of it is very gross or very disturbing and you're right.

New Adam Sandler Halloween Movie on Netflix
"I, guess sort of mixed reactions in mixed recommendations from me but Brad let's move to you. What have you been watching? I watched another hitchcock remake Huby. Halloween. How many I saw the original but this one is a steep departure. From that. No. This is the new Adam Sandler movie that's on Netflix's Halloween themed obviously, and I went out of my way to watch it because some people including an article that we published on slash home dot com. I don't remember who who wrote it and forcing them. Sir Jacob can tell me here in a second, but they actually said that this movie was funny. And I just WANNA say? No, it's not. I I will say I did laugh a few times during this movie. There are some some funny recurring bits and just a few things that I was surprised just funny jokes that suddenly caught me off guard. But this is just another weird movie were Adam. Sandler puts on a goofy voice and this is one of the voices where you can barely understand what he's saying to because he's mumbling all the time. And it's just has such a weird story and it has these tangents that don't ask anything that don't make any sense like. Shaquille O'Neal's part in particular. Felt like it was super shoehorned. into the proceedings and then. You know you have Julie Garner's character who is yet another woman who is inexplicably infatuated with one sandler's dimwitted goofball characters and I just I don't know how or like. Adam. Sandler his point and like why he's been stuck here for so long 'cause I had also recently rewatch the wedding singer went to talked about in the quarantine stream and recently big daddy because I found out that my parents had never seen and I love both of those movies and they are genuinely hilarious not even just funny by. Adam Sandler movie standards. They're very good comedies and just movies like Cuba Halloween in Sandy Wexler which Steven Brill also directed there. So far, and away you know the kind of comedy that Adam Sandler used to be able to make used to have like characters that were fleshed out and felt real while also being funny and like not just these goofy characters and that's not to say that you can't have comedies that have outlandish characters in them. But whatever Adam Sandler is doing with these kinds

Popcorn with Peter Travers
Oscars 2020 Preview
"HI everybody. It's Peter Travers. Here here with this special edition of Popcorn which we're calling the Oscar popcorn because this weekend on February ninth exactly everybody will be watching. Being the Oscar telecast on ABC and probably having their own little ballot. Like I have here trying to figure out who's going to win this damn thing and if the person I don't like winds pushed I put my money on. That's what really happens. That's what people ask me on the street. So I'm GonNa take you through these main categories and and we'll see what will win what should win and we can argue. You can find me somewhere and we can argue about it. But I'm going to start with with best supporting actress. Because that's how the Academy Awards those that's always the first award that we say Kathy Bates in Richard Jewel. Laura dern in marriage in story Scarlett Johansson in Joe Rabbit Florence Pew in Little Women and Margot Robbie in bombshell so look. There's it's a lot of good people here and I have to say right at the outset. That Scarlett Johansson is one of those rare actors that has a nomination as best actress. Chris and best supporting actress marriage story for Best Actress in here supporting which usually gets you to win one and that usually that it's usually that one but it's it's not going to happen you know I'm sitting here saying did I read wrong. What happened to Jennifer Lopez and hustlers? Hasn't she been in this game since the release Lisa Hustler she has and yet the academy you bad people have decided that J.. Lo just wasn't Oscar material while you're wrong but look we we have to deal with rats here and I'm going to say that the person who will win in this category is also the person who should win. And that is Laura Burn and Laura dern in marriage story plays a divorce lawyer and she's a tough one and let's think of all the Hollywood people that are voting for this award and how every single one of them I'll wager. A BET has their own divorce lawyer and has been through this process. Maybe more than once. Maybe two we're three times to do it. And they find Laura Dern Dunn's in this movie something spectacular it's also one of the few awards. I think that marriage story story is going to win. But Laura Dern has never won an Oscar. This will be her first time. Everyone loves her. We all love and big little lies and I think this is her time on so let her have it all right. I'm moving onto best supporting actor. Tom Hanks in a beautiful day in the neighborhood. Anthony Hopkins in the two popes Al Al Pacino in the Irishman Joe Pesci in the Irishman and Brad Pitt in once upon a time in Hollywood. Look you're talking to a big Irishman fan here so if it was me saying come up for the gold it would be Joe. Patchy I know Joe Pesci doesn't do any publicity. He basically sticks fix to himself. He's probably tough guy in real life as the gangster that he plays in the Irishman but that performance is amazing and won won his first Oscar for another score says he movie goodfellas where he was the most scary gangster. You can see here. He's kind of quiet dawn. So if I'm I'm giving them it would be Joe Patchy but the academy is giving this award and no one. No one can win. This except Brad Pitt. These other people here Tom Hanks Anthony Hopkins Al Pacino and Peci all have won Oscars so they already have the gold. Do you realize his full career. Brad Brad Pitt has never won an academy award game over people. This is it Brad. You're going to get in once upon a time in Hollywood playing a stuntman. It man playing somebody who's been around the business. I think it's irresistible for Hollywood to say I'm going to reject one of my own. Plus he was great in the movie. You seem to hear my voice that I have a little bit of a problem. Yeah I do. Because that's not a supporting performance at all that his part is the equal who of his Co Star Leonardo DiCaprio's WHO's nominated for best actor. So why is he in that category. I think they want to win. And Brad you might as well prepare repair your speech right now okay. I am now moving onto best actress. Cynthia Haribo in Harriet Scarlett Johansson in marriage story. Sir Sharon in little women. Charlie's Sharon in bombshell and Renee Zellweger in Judy. What Best S. actress award so far from the Golden Globes to the critics choice awards has it Renee Zellweger one? She's won all of them. So is there any possibility ability here for something else. I mean. Look what Charlie. Stern did in bombshell. She not only plays Megan Kelly. The makeup geniuses have made her look exactly exactly like her and Charlie's has talked exactly like are they love bio pics there so she should be really strong. Social Ronin is like twenty five years old. She's he's on her fourth Oscar nomination. This is incredible and Scarlett Johansson. Like I said nominated for best. Supporting actress and Best Actress. Cynthia revolt is playing Harry Tubman and she also wrote the song from the movie which is nominated. That happened to somebody last year. Didn't it yes it was lady. Eating Gaga Lady Gaga was nominated for writing that wonderful song from stars born and his best actress. But what did you win. She won best song and that was it so I have to say that again. I would give this award person late to search for Ronin just because I think to be that young and to be that consistently brilliant is amazing and her performance in little women. Is that good. But it's Rene as I talk about. How Hollywood would love bio-pics this is? Judy Garland that she's playing judy. This is one of their own. Did they ever give. Judy Garland her own Oscar Competitive Competitive Acting Oscar. Never and I think for that reason not only will renee Zellweger win best actress but she will win for Oscar. Judy Garland on never had. It's their way of saying Judy. We love you. We were so stupid not to give it to you. And we're going to give it to Rene in honor of you. This is how Hollywood works. It's really crazy. But if you're betting on this you have to bet crazy. Aright best actor Antonio Banderas in pain and gory. Leonardo di Caprio in once upon a time in Hollywood Adam driver in marriage story what came Phoenix and joker and Jonathan Pryce in the two popes. I look at this category and before I get into. Who Will Win and who should win? I've I've got to say academy what you have against Comedians. And what do you have against Eddie Murphy. That he's not nominated for Dole. Might as my name what you have against Adam Sandler who proved his dramatic chops in uncut gems. Like nobody can believe and yet they have it they only like to give Oscars to actors serious actors who played comic roles. Ause they hate anybody who's making a living as a comic to actually win this war so this year's been going along I've had this feeling that this was Adam drivers to lose that performance in marriage story is one of the best things he's ever done or that I've seen this year and yet there's this other guy and who's that other guy he's Joaquin Phoenix plane joker. Sometimes there's that kind of performance sometimes. There's there's one that just so dominates the screen. That is such an act of immersion of from an actor in a raw. Yeah Joaquin was scary. He was sometimes funny. He was always touching even though he's playing somebody who's totally out of his mind and a lot of this movie his in his mind. What Cain has been nominated several times before and never one Joaquin? This is yours. I can't believe any set of circumstances. Stances if you WANNA bet the whole house on something and somebody to win it's going to be Joaquin Phoenix as best actor for joker game over all right. We're ready now to move on. I'm going to best director now. This is one of the most exciting categories because these people will these particular men and save and because Hollywood as wont of decided that even though there were more women directing movies than ever before four last year. They couldn't find any to nominate which is of course absurd because Greta Gerwig directed little women which is nominated as best picture and they. I thought no I'm just GONNA do five men like we always do what happened. You people sort of learned a couple of years ago when you nominated Greta. GERWIG quick for Ladybird didn't give it to her. But you nominated her. The KADEMI is ninety two years old. Now how many women has given an academy award for directing one. And that's Kathryn Bigelow for hurt locker. Ninety two years one award hang your head in shame name anyway not knocking any of these men that did get nominated. But there's one in there that I would sacrifice for Greta Gerwig but you you try to guess who that is anyway. Here they are. Martin Scorsese the Irishman Todd Phillips. For Joker Sam Mendes for nine thousand nine hundred Seventeen Quentin Tarantino eighteen. O for once upon a time in Hollywood and Bung June hope for parasite every one of these guys you can make a case for. Martin Scorsese Z.. To me is a master the grandmaster who only has one Oscar for directing and then the Irishman is doing some of his best work. Ever Quentin Tarantino. Not No with once upon a time in Hollywood is also a peak form and yet I'm saying this category is going to between two other the directors one of them being the South Korean Vong June Hall for parasite a Foreign Language Film. That seems to have got everybody excited about what's possible and then Sam Mendes for nine hundred seventeen a world war one movie that is constructed to look like it was done in in one continuous. Take how do you resist that. You don't even though I think they would really like to give their best director award worked. Bon John. How it's going to be for Sam Mendes for creating a war movie like no war movie we've ever seen before so sam I think think it's yours but if you're getting out there and you WanNa go to Bung Jun Ho? You know you might do it because there's always a surprise in these contests we can't go. Oh by what the odds are we have to go by sometimes the academy saying I have an instinct for this. I have a feeling this is the right way to go all right last category. Are we ready best picture of the year Ford versus Ferrari the Irishman Joe. Joe Rabbit Joker her little women marriage story nineteen seventeen once upon a time in Hollywood and parasite here is is the one you know every year I do this. It's between one or two movies this year. I can't reduce anything to to the Irishman my estimation a classic one for the ages. Martin Scorsese. Ed Is Best Robert De Niro Pacino. Joe Patchy making a mob movie about old-age age about the end of a mobster. This is the punishment that they get for the lives they live. There's nobody in their lives there alone. It's a tragedy Quentin went and Tarintino. Once upon a time in Hollywood is writing about Hollywood in the sixties and about a time that he thought was the last creative burst of Hollywood Hollywood and doing that. Nineteen seventeen again the World War One movie shot to make it look like. It's one continue steak and parasite a movie about a Korean Rian family in which they exploited the people they work for and then are exploited by the people working for them it is a classic. These are four incredible classics. So what am I gonNA do. What am I going to tell you? What's out there that you have to say? This is the winner and I'm going to go with with all excuses. No excuses in fact to my love for the Irishman. But I think this is the year of Quentin Tarantino. I I think once upon a time in Hollywood being a love letter to Hollywood and being voted on by people who live and work in Hollywood Quentin Tarantino despite right brilliant work with pulp fiction inglorious bastards reservoir dogs Django unchained has never won a Best Picture Oscar or a best director Oscar. Never it's never happened. What better time than now? When he saying Hollywood I love you? I think it's time Hollywood to say to Quentin Tarantino. I love you back back. So you've got it watch the show and afterwards we'll have a discussion.
Diversity at the Oscars: The 2020 Race Isn’t Looking Any Better Than Last Time
"I feel like hell for the law and Michael to Michael for lying and get contraction I saw this French film of course later on so I was very excellent and might just make it to be honest it would not Maxis the prices for me you know at the very beginning of awards season three kicks off with three phone fast fan is Toronto in telluride at the end of the summer the beginning the full and then bounced off you start hearing people's reaction and this is the red slacks a waiting van and you're looking at pictures saying well they're all satin and a prominent films with African Americans the soon so would directed by women I didn't know if they were going to cross over the queue for that group of voters in a few years ago actually when when a post all the adults because so white we could get at round tables with the active the directors the writers and when we were putting together the actress round table there were absolutely no women of color who seems like they would even like to to get nominated and I remember and and we got pretty massively criticized rightly I take the blame for this to have an all white women's round table and and we changed direction after that but it was evident that the industry walking creating those films and I think it's easy to say if the cat in the for XP industry see both you and you have to tackle things in multiple directions I think the academy's has done a great deal to do that what we have is talking about this the other things the academy dot for instance mentorship program financing for education there are multiple patrols here that lead to this problem and she also looking at the ferry downstream and the cat in the wrong but you call take in isolation April Stephen has a great point we tend to look at the academy not that the academy shouldn't be accountable they should they're sort of the tip of the iceberg in many many ways what's your view of the academy that you focus so much attention on verses the industry I absolutely agree with Steve and that it's not just the economy it's not just the golden globes is not just a Baptist we need to go all the way back to the very beginning to the screenwriter stage and figure out again whose stories are being told and who is telling those stories when someone is sitting down with a blank page and findings front of them hoping that they have written about to write the next best picture you know what is the protagonist look like is it a tall leggy blonde from the Midwest because if so by the time we get the casting months the maybe years later then the only person you're thinking about is Scarlett Johannson or Jennifer Lawrence but then one has to ask what is their hair color have to do with how well they perform in that film right because that means then then Daya and Gina Rodriguez and other people won't even get an opportunity to audition just because of what's that in the mind set I absolutely agree that the economy is the very end of the line so we really need to start back at the beginning and find out what opportunities are being given to traditionally under represented communities not just with respect to race but also sexual orientation gender identity disability to get those films made from the very beginning and at the same time April you have written about the types of roles that black actors and actresses do get nominated for once they are cast once they are in that pipeline you wrote a piece in variety you talk about how the only black woman to be nominated for Best Actress was Cynthia Revo who plays Harriet Tubman in the film Harriet similarly Lupita nyong'o won an Oscar for her role in twelve years a slave but this year she was overlooked for the to care after she played in Jordan peels hit movie us talk about what you see is the pattern for how black actors and actresses get promoted and celebrated when they are in films it's a real problem and I think that Stephen touched on this a bit you know that that in their minds that even when they were sending up those round tables they didn't think that those you know particular performances were even going to cross over for women of color and so they were included in the panel and one must ask what kind of troops palatable to the economy to voters to film critics because the vast majority of winners especially for women of color and black women in film have all come from a place where the characters are experiencing significant trauma so inflamed women women living in abject poverty even Whoopi Goldberg who played the cookie skit side kick in ghosts and when the best supporting actress you know they were there were questions about whether she had mental health issues right the only black woman who's ever won for Best Actress is Halle berry in monster's ball and clearly she with the troubled character and so one has to say well are there only thing is that the economy fees you know that only a slave narrative that is palatable to again a majority white male voter membership and that's the movies that we see time and time again you know why is it that my pain the pain of my ancestors is entertaining for you that that is what you will award but when someone like Peter in young girl has to fully fleshed out characters in us she is snubbed for that role because we actually the very first of may off to be on the actress roundtable if you will be pizza it was a wonderful performance so it isn't shown true of actresses of color you know for the rack access to the email you'll you'll you'll call the mansion on college and terrific performance by Adam Sandler but is deceived official in the movie Sean movies don't tend to do well they lost to until movie was was one of the very few exceptions and this applies just as much to active in that applies just as much the film that win the Oscar for Best Picture DOT flight in the whole history of the office you call he had any comment is that where you thought I called think of a single is shown a picture of that as well on the other hand Schindler's list winter so this isn't shocked a criterion for the place to women of color let's talk about some more films that could have been nominated that didn't get nominated we've already mentioned Stephen you mentioned hustlers one of many movies with a cast of mostly women directed by a woman they got zero nominations this year fair fail to to cross over is you say let's get people to hang on I want to I want to give people a little bit of a listen to hustlers here we go Wall Street guys it's in this country stole from everybody working people lost everything one of these things back to jail the game is rigged and it does not reward people who play by the rules like robbing a bank except get the keys hunter Harrison vulture some people have suggested that Jennifer Lopez campaigning for the nomination too much might have played into her not getting an Oscar nomination for her role in hustlers what what are your thoughts on this film and on the reason why J. lo was overlooked I mean how search has a very special place in my heart because it is based on and your magazine story but outside of that I just enjoyed it I think it has a lot of momentum it's a lot of fine and I mean my favorite teen hustlers as winter for Lawrence's teaching Constance Wu how to strip essentially and it's just such a loving scene between two women who were just you know being friends with one another but at the same time I think the thing with jail is that I think when you're voting for and someone when an Oscar part of the sort of metric is that you have to know that how much they wanted and away and that they need it and with Jello she's already like an icon she is such a form I mean we also heard the Superbowl last week and so I think it actually might have been the opposite that maybe she did and maybe that there's been that shouldn't wanted I'm not for need it to be to sort of solidify her status in Hollywood or or in the world really but it I was really surprised by Jill rocketing nomination because she had gotten a lot of the precursors and her biggest competition is obviously Laura Dern who is the favorite to win for playing a lawyer in marriage story but for a lot of the season especially after hosters career in Toronto they were pretty head like neck and neck but I think the jail thing is that did that character of like a mama bear stripper was not really you know super palatable to a lot of people she dealt drugs and you know sort of engaged or Shoup's worked as sort of a pen been engaged in sex work but at the same time like that's not really a role that we see women especially winning Oscars for I think I wanna push back in Stevens point earlier that that you know the problem about the roles women when the colors spit specifically play in movies is that extends to everyone I don't really think that's true anything Custer's is in some ways an example of that that this was sort of a prickly story about women who are doing bad things and getting caught doing them and that's just not a movie that people see as an Oscar movie I think that's everyone's detriment what we got this voice mail from a listener sharing his opinion about the role that race and gender should or shouldn't play when it comes to Oscar nominations we got several responses along this theme listen IBM injury Oscar is I don't mind or don't care who the with gender of the person is or what color the person is I care about quality in the movie that's being produced I don't care what color they are what gender they are I don't think it matters Linda tweeted this is it just possible that there were no good movies made by people of color or women this year when will the best just be the best without conditions attached Stephen you go first and then April what's your response okay I just briefly want to respond to sing about Jennifer Lopez I we saw she did get nominated the best supporting actress before it could be a thirty two fax one is that movie is very unsentimental about her role and it had a different ending in the retention people would have like that for the cliche narrative the very strength of the film is resistant to that meeting as you said less palatable the second thing is when conformist so let you see the acting when he seems so real that you think this is just what they like the performances of look she made it so real the people football if you'd just what she's like it's one of the reasons Tom Hanks has been so rarely nominate a you got nominated this year but not for many many years he makes it look so easy well certainly we're seeing the film let's let's put J.
