So let's start off with best picture drama in which the nominees are Nomad Land. This is the amazing movie with Frances McDormand. Who, you know, play. Somebody who's her life is sort of falling apart and she gets in a van and hits the road and lives in RV camps and recreational areas taking on you know little seasonal jobs along the way. It zest a very sweet and very thoughtful, touching movie. I think this is going to be the big winner for tonight. You know People love Frances McDormand. I think that this is gonna have a lot of Lot of success at the Golden Globes tonight. It will be up against the trial of the Chicago Seven, which, if Nomad land doesn't win trial of the Chicago Seven is going to win. This is the Aaron Sorkin. The written and directed production about the famous Chicago seven trial that took place in Chicago 50 years ago.

Your nominees were best Drama for performances in the dramatic category. For actresses. The nominees are Violet Davis on Drew a day, Vanessa Kirby, Frances McDormand and Carrie Mulligan. For best actors in the drama. The nominees are Riz Um, Ed Chadwick Boseman, Anthony Hopkins. I think the winners are going to be Frances McDormand and I just I don't know how Chadwick Boseman Doesn't win. He's amazing in the movie Ma Rainey's black bottom.

The motion picture called Music was nominated, as was the comedy with Andy Sandberg, Palm Springs. And the Ryan Murphy directed production. The prom. Which has Meryl Streep and has just AH, whole variety of very talented actors. That's also nominated for best picture as well.

And, uh, Anya Taylor, Joy dominated for the movie called Emma for best performance by an actor in a motion picture, musical or comedy. Sasha Baron Cohen is nominated James Corden from the prom Lin Manuel Miranda from Hamilton Dev Patel for the personal history of David Copperfield and Andy Sandberg. For Palm Springs again.

You know you shouldn't push your brain because of autism in the mountains next you to take it easy so i did. But that's what i gotta tighten. Overworking could have affected. You and i've always been work on it. But then that's what happened to be while. I wonder if those experiences might have been something you drew upon when you did the father because it's sort of disorienting obviously thing to to play with to play someone with dementia. Well well yes. It is because in those moments that i had in my own mind It was scary because a lot of anxiety he has held. The doctors just found to rest and within twenty four hours is back to normal but it was all wasn't terrified. I thought i hope. I can come out of this and with the father is much simpler because descriptive sola Thorin created this series of place father of the mother and the son that street from the new york and and then he got this wonderful screen. A writer krista hampton Before seven three times many of you say competitive just the learns civil because once but many series about acting sonnino haven't acted but the funny thing is that once you once you get a good screenplay a good text you don't need to mess with it. You may change rotator nafta cj but just like following a roadmap so there was no strain. No efforts go into the student the morning on little tiny studio in london. coleman one flexes and the rest of the cost of wonderful Us so for me intimacy. Some as they walk in the bugaboos dead easy reviews. Yeah no big deal. Welna come back and ask you more of course about the father which i had actually been lucky enough to see on broadway so it was quite interesting to see the ways that you guys approached it on. Yes yes it was really interesting to then see how was how tailored for the screen. But before i want to kind of stick to the chronology for a moment though if i can because you went back to england having fled with macbeth and seventy three seventy four a decade later you went back. Why did you decide to give it a second chance. That only was interrupted. I guess eventually when silence of the lambs came about. I was living in georgia. Then things began to undone agency see Could use it for him. Split the is. I go back to the nice it up thank you. That's okay. I sent them back to.

That's how no idea i didn't. I didn't choose ben. Kissel bend Pethick so why. He's spent those years too. So right through the father. It seems like you have had a openness to working with very young newish directors and think that an early example of that would be the elephant man with david lynch who had only made a racer at that point What for you gave you the confidence that this was something worth dealing when it was the guy who wasn't really that widely known even unique director abuser a real original and so i didn't Mob how big in the books directly a predictable and for some reason. They chose me to do it. I'd never went to before known briefly but didn't really know we started and done yet. David lynch was a unique kind of genius.

"Closest they come to consummating their relationship. Is that scene to an extent because of the subject matter but also just because of their proximity to each other the intimacy the way they actually kinda bump up against each other but the way. He has to shield himself from her the way. Psychologically he has to kind of detach himself because he can't give into the feelings. He has to maintain that sense of order. That sense of duty the remains of the day. If you haven't seen it is so good and you have to host now. Who are telling you that those are top. Five anthony hopkins performances josh. Did you have any other honorable mentions. Yes i mentioned. The edge really thought about that one. I do like that movie and this surprised me. I asked for listeners. Picks on my larsen on film. Facebook page just to see what people were thinking. And i was surprised to get some meet. Joe black love. This is the nine hundred ninety. Eight brad pitt. Movie pit plays death opposite. Anthony hopkins playing this widowed media mogul pondering his mortality and Yeah i'll share this ethan. Mcilhenny said is meet. Joe black a bad movie. Probably but i really think hopkins is dialed in and him wistfully noting sixty five years. Don't they go by in a blink honestly kind of wrecked me. And i'm not even halfway there then. I also heard from south coal chimed in. I think meet joe. Black is underrated. I find myself revisiting. It every few years and enjoying it still each time. It's an easy target with brad pitt. In his peak pretty boy mode but hopkins performance is really what levels the movie out. He is a solid here as any other movie. He's in so all this. Adam emboldened me to admit that i recalled enjoying meet joe black quite a bit so i went to my review. Archives had to go to the print edition of the regional news and indeed. I found this. It's hopkins generosity. That's most admirable here while brimming with intelligence and vigorous william parrish hopkins still leaves room. I co star to establish an entrancing presence of his own so there adam roof evidence. My brad pitt. Love goes way back. Way back. Still have not seen meet joe black and i wanted to do it as homework. And then i saw the runtime. It's like three hours right. It is yes but brad. Pitt's defaced and keep in mind when that movie came out. Oh when that movie came out. I was in my full on brad. Pitt's not really a good actor phase. Which i've since abandoned because well i'm going to say i think brad pitt has gotten considerably better as an actor. Let me let me frame it that way. But that's the boat. I was in and every time. I saw any scenes from that movie with pit it it just reaffirmed my feeling so i still have not watched me joe black. Three hours of brad. Pitt's dopey face sign me up. Well i like your nixon pick. I like him as henry. Willcox and howard's n. I do like him as richard in the lion in winter. I think he's really good. In the two popes his recent oscar nomination his most recent one. I think it's a really fascinating performance. And one may be off the beaten path hearts in atlantis from two thousand one. I think a pretty sweet movie with a really tender performance from hopkins again. Those are top. Five anthony hopkins performances.

"On the grace of god wonder in doubt the darkness. She's vampire nas to these creatures. Do not die like the of the first sting but instead grow strong become immortal wants infected by another arto. Too so yeah. Let's talk about the accent. What is it. they're good. You can tell. it's maybe welsh. I don't know generally british but there's some dutch possibly in there to maybe transylvanian. We're getting a little transylvanian romanian. Then i i. It's just sublime i do. Though i think hopkins actually is good here. Not just can't be and you do get a sense of this the difference in another scene. This is where he's in a pub with when owner rider account arrives. They're discussing their prospects against dracula. And here's where you can tell the differentiation between an actor who really knows what to do with this sort of material and those who may be aren't quite so sure. How did lucy die. Was she in great pain. Yes she was in great pin. Then we cut off the stakes and heart and then she found feast. Please make no mistake. Hopkins's chewing scenery here. You've got the on again. he chugs. I love the moment where he chugs his whole mug of beer in one gulp but the key has come foreseeable doing this. He's not stabilized by the grandiose material by the scenario by the dialogue by the costumes by the accent writer and reeves. They just they never find that sort of stability in this film. I know we're no longer allowed to say anything. Negative about canada reeves. But right maybe not. His strongest performance in dracula. And i think it's. It's crucial to see you know. It's helpful to see how hopkins handling the material little differently. Not every actor. Who goes over the top is entertainingly comfortably. So and i think hopkins does have that talent. I think something he also shares with oldman. And maybe it's best. On display in bram stoker's dracula. The accent really is sublime and i love the way. Even get it here with the accent even when it's not in his let's say native tongue. You have hopkins doing what he does so well. Which is altered. The dynamics of his line readings right speeding up rushing words together. Yeah and slowing certain words down. He he does that really better than anybody. Yeah oh i and i. I'll talk more detail about hopkins and line readings as we go on here. all right. my number four anthony hopkins performance comes from a movie that i watched as part of homework for this top five. That paid off a movie. That was not part of our eight from eighty four series but is from nineteen eighty-four and a movie that showed me. Where josh anthony hopkins got his early cannibal training for the silence of the lambs in the bounty his. Lieutenant william bligh at one point is talking about how they're going to be on this treacherous journey to any kind of land and non hostile territory in people and they'll have to go through the fiji islands where he says cannibalism is almost perfected to a science. He wants to stay away from it. I don't know maybe maybe. He took a detour. Josh learned but there's a similar conceit here and construct to the edge in the bounty it's man versus nature for sure it's man versus other man. It's man versus himself. Nature of course is the open sea. It's also the hedonistic pleasure dome of tahiti where they're just meant to stop and pick up some breadfruit and then get on with their journey and then have spending like two or three months. they're frolicking with all of the topless women. There's the other man. In this case primarily mel gibson. Who plays fletcher christian his supposed friend and his second in command but it's the man versus himself part. That really intrigues me. Most about hopkins lieutenant. Why what's happening with his men and his mission and their environment that'll heightens the inner conflict but the inner conflict is perhaps what led to the other conflicts in the first place. He doesn't have the title. he thinks he deserves. He thinks he should be a captain. He doesn't come for money he doesn't have well connected friends. Everything england society at the time especially seventeen. Eighty seven is predicated on and then perhaps because of all of those inferiority. He's he tries too hard as a leader. He's prone to soap boxing and moralizing and he's driven by his ambition. He's got to prove himself. He's going to sail the quickest route. Not the best route for the men the easiest route. He's going to circumnavigate the globe by going around one. Despite knowing how treacherous it is and the inner conflicts really come through and this dynamic. I'm trying to set up with hopkins in terms of that primal nature that he's always battling they get to tahiti josh with the exposed women and the let's say sexual fraternization between them and his men and they're really troubling inappropriate ceremonies with the suggestive dancing. That's where bligh's leadership and his overriding sense of moral. Superiority is then thrown completely into crisis. So i'll play a clip where he's confronting mel gibson's character and fletcher christian has gone all in. He's got the woman he's in love with. He's gotten the native tattoos. He's living a life of pure carnal bliss and has no intentions of going back to jolly old. I think your brain has been overheated. Sir your body overindulged in sexual excess have done more than any natural man would do. No no more than anyone dynamo will do always makes me off. Whenever men lose their self restraint they always say that naturally are more natural than men who have nothing to restrain christian would report to the ship before sundown is that understood. What did you say. So there we get that natural man versus wild animal kind of dynamic and the really stinging line from gibson there that they are more natural than men who have nothing to restrain what is in one's nature what's unnatural to do or feel and the compulsion for restraint gibson. Here is really accusing him of being so restrained as to not actually be a man and i think josh not to give too many spoilers but emma thompson is going to needle anthony hopkins character about his restraint and how he actually betrays his natural instincts in one of our picks coming up but also in terms of line readings here. The way hopkins says surprised. Any he bottoms out when he says that he really leans into that. And this is another one where the pressure builds and mount hopkins erupts smaller scale than the edge. But it's there and if you really want to see eruption in the bounty. It's there to be appreciated. Daniel day-lewis also a primary character in this film. So you've got daniel day hopkins and mel gibson all going toe to toe with each other. And there's one scene in particular where hopkins bligh loses it on daniel day lewis in front of the entire crew all included on our top five page over film spotting dot net. If you wanna watch. Yeah and that's the one. I haven't seen this either but Knowing this was going to be on your list. I did watch a couple of scenes. That's the one where you get the full volk volcano and it's brought to mind for me i don't mean this to diminish what hopkins is doing at all but george costanza moment. You know george could just go for zero. Sixty hopkins has that quality but of course brings much more drama to it. And you definitely get it in that scene. Well a six decade career. Like that of anthony hopkins definitely deserves. More picks will get to our top three choices and succumb to film spotty madness when we come back. Stay with us. Who.

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.
Jonathan Pryce, 'The Two Popes'
"There's a movie now that you can see a Netflix. It's called the two popes and it stars my guest today. Jonathan Pryce and Anthony Living Hopkins. Playing guess what the title characters doing doing it brilliantly. So Jonathan Welcome Creek Pope Francis there. You are the big news now. About Pope Francis is his encounter with this woman in the crap out there where he sort of slapped her hand. Yeah Yeah have you been being asked this question now would I please slap really. Okay do I WANNA be grant. At the Golden Globes. There was a lot of Grabbing and pushing polling I was tempted to slap but I feel really sorry for him because people aren't seeing the whole whole sequence video where that particular woman grabbed him very yanked him yanked him and he's He's an Obama scientists bound to hurt. Well let's talk about the two popes in terms of the whole concept of you being offered this to play the The Argentinian Paul. Because we don't see him in the movie being the pope really walk up to that while Anthony Hopkins is playing Pope Benedict German. is you're an Argentinian to Welshman playing these. Yeah somebody must've said. That's that's what we need is to Welshman to do this time for Welsh. Pope was watching and watching. You play this. I kept thinking this other. Argentinian you play. which was one there? You are the dictator in a way. Pope can be a dictator but Pope Francis Go. You is the liberal reform. The one that wants to give them more compassionate look at the church. Did you have any trepidation about pilots. Just just just the usual about whether I wanted to do any of. Is that how you approach them. All Walk Negative. Say No no I thought uh I thought I'd be on a hiding to nothing representing this particular pope. But that didn't last very long. I read the script and won ten. You that Fernando Morella Morella was gonNA be directing it. I definitely wanted to do it and I think it was mainly to do with the fact that I'm not religious logistics. I was brought up in the Christian faith. I went to church until I was a teenager. but I found that this pope was the first pope who I thought was speaking to me and millions like me about issues that what. Mrs Narrowly to do the Church or organized religion but to do with politics and to do with speaking out up folding environment and about the economy about the injustice is the during the world so I he was someone for great empathy towards towards and help. That looked like him a bit and I walk like came definitely Even though you've got ten years on me you could sneak into the the Vatican may be busy and just an take over there and do what you would need to do there. Does that give you a feeling when your plane that that this was what I would do if I win. The pope shoes. I wouldn't be so presumptious to fix that but I'm glad he's doing what he's doing And obviously he's got. There's the whole church and Vatican side of things which he doesn't seem to be able to deal with those conquer but when you're constantly reading lots of stories about how he's disliked within the Vatican because he's a reformer and people don't want that change and I think that's that's why he became pope. He was be made pope in order to make these changes. Otherwise so why choose him because he was in the never been an odd uh-huh latin-american Pope and the film implies of that we don't necessarily know the truth. That benedict wanted Bagogwe uglier to be the next pope because he saw in him things that he could not even he couldn't do he saw in many ways his opposite didn't they and this is it. I didn't mention this in the introduction but benedict was a pope who retired. WHO said I'm not going to do it anymore? And so we have to popes who Are Alive in this world today and they're the clips at the end of the real popes in seeming tab. Having a really terrific time when I sold the first Kata film I was bit disturbed. They were showing the real popes at the end of the phone. Because I thought it would invalidate everything. We've been doing for the previous to house. But what you see in these two men is a is a the committee this just a welcoming the way they they greet each other with great affection and you can see the respect. They have for each other and far from taking away from our performances it they it enhances. It gives an element of truth to what we were doing. It's a really terrific script. Ns Two popes one of these two guys talking to each other which sometimes scares people when they go to the movies. I want that but yet a mirage as a director makes this movie move. You've so beautiful to gorgeous thing to look at. It's also sometimes. Polaris that's going on. Did you all know that that was what was going to happen before he did it. No no what's what's wonderful about. The film is that it It's such a surprise for audiences once don't you don't you. You gotta get them in there and then once they're in that It's a surprise Because it's it's much funnier than I ever expected. And and the audience expect and I think the way we made the film there was no. We didn't have many preconceptions. I don't remember ever talking onto Tony. I'm going to be like this. And he said I'm going to be like this and finance and I want you to do this. That and the whole process was really organic bound because we have the the strength of that script bit underneath his you know holding us up and when I saw it and the way Fernando put it together other because he says his work starts in the editing room he lets us do what we want and encourages us to go certain ways but when I they do what they want to that yeah good directors do that they let you think your your your coming up with the Serving quietly feed and things in your ear they let you think it's your idea So when I saw it I didn't know it was going to be so funny. Rondo humorous. I mean that first scene of your character trying to book his own plane reservations on the fault. Yeah probably apparently did that. That's what he did but it's the post game I saw with a big audience was telluride. And because you I don't know what to expect and that moment the right at the beginning of the phone web the audience laughs as one. The huge wave of laughter. You can feel the audiences sir. I sent me sat by a few. And they're going to enjoy this and the you can feel the audience sitting back and saying this. This is going to be okay you can. It's like Yep okay you know bring it on make happen and yet it also doesn't avoid the controversies that exist within the church. Now the whole thing with the problem priests they're predators that are there and also their histories. Can you talk a little about his history. Go Yeah it back in the seventies in terms of Argentina. It's all mostly. It's all in the film and we didn't shy away from it. The way were applauded and thanked thanked by the people people in Bonus Iris. When they sold the film we had a screening because they that fear was this is going to be a whitewash elma? Crossover Haggi Auger fear Goglia. Because he is still seen as a divisive character in Argentina because of his perceived involvement involvement with the cardinals. I've found on Youtube footage of him being interrogated by or question by his peers fellow cardinals about his involvement with the colonels. And you see a very different man the man you see smiling on the balcony. And he's made pope he's he's he's very doer he's quite angry. I think he's impatient. He's drumming his fingers on the table. And I put that image together with talking to a Jesuit priest and bonus. Who worked with him? I who said they didn't like him. He was Very always stays. Ah Stay by himself. He didn't mix I he was he never smiled. I'm when they saw him on the balcony. This smiling pope. They didn't recognize him because he was smiling. Didn't person yeah. But then you do get the other side of him where he is in the film you see him Saying mass and the kind of the slum township areas and and the other side's members very popular so it's not a a a bio-pic it's not a huggy overview of this man. It's a it's a Watson Study of him and I think we've been fair to him because we all respect him and admire him And we had a screening in Rome three or four weeks ago were members of the Vatican Cambridge theory and They said they liked liked. That enjoyed it And a particular Cardinal WHO's a friend? WHO's a friend of Love Benedict and of Francis He'd liked the phone very much. Fernando the director said. Do you think we were too hard on the church. And he said you went hot enough woo but he also said that he thought France would like the film and he wanted the DVD to take them to show him the film. I love so That review see that. Yeah well what do starts right. Yeah that'd be good and also from France's family in Argentina. Fernando got an email to say that they'd seen it. They enjoyed the film and they liked. What we've done Representing their uncle. That was that was really nice. Colon uncle Uncle Horace to two years. How were you and Anthony Hopkins together? You know. You haven't made anything or done anything before. Really WE'VE BEEN ON A. We're both on the recording of under milk. Wood the Dylan Thomas Poem that was produced by George Martin. Twenty seven years ago the Beatles producer and Tony was first voice. I was second voice and you come twenty seven years later. We're in Rome and the coal sheet has You know you're rated as the importance in the film. The number and I was number one and Tony was number two so it was my revenge after twenty seven audit your greet each other even morning with morning number one number two. It went on from there but we. It's interesting the what happens to the two men in the film is reflected. Did what happened to Tony. And I because you know in the film you see two men sort of sniffing around each other like a pair of dogs like where each other Eh Wary of Tony but I was. I was I I'm an aura of Tony Hopkins. I'm a great admirer of his. So I'm not played late into those early scenes and as you see the pope's relationship growing so my friendship with Tony grew and It is the equivalent of both of us. All of US tangoing together by the end of it. That's a good way to put out.
It's Sundance Time Again
"Welcome to the frame. I'm Steven Cuevas in for John Horn. But he's actually sitting right here beside me because by the time you hear this. He'll be at the Sundance Film Festival. John Thanks for taking time before you pack your bags my pleasure. I love the fact that I'm here but I'm not here John. There are dozens of feature films film screened at Sundance. Of course tell me about some of this year's most anticipated entries. I'M GONNA lean towards documentaries if you look at the movies that are nominated for the documentary feature academy me where this year three of them premiered at Sundance a year ago. American factory honey land and edge of democracy. And if you look at the very first night at the Sundance Dance Film Festival. There are new documentaries from producers. You might have heard of Barack and Michelle Obama. They've called Crip camp which is about the disability rights movement. There's another documentary about Taylor swift and about why. She is becoming a little bit more political and that's just in one theater in one night. Well one of the documentary entries premiering at Sundance that I wanted to ask you about It's when it's trying a lot of controversy and that's the Kirby Dick and amy during documentary on the record. It focuses on the sexual assault allegations against hip hop mogul Russell Simmons. The film was being executive. Co produced by Oprah Winfrey set to be released on Apple. TV then Winfrey suddenly. He withdrew support and some say. It was under pressure from Russell Simmons. She denies this and says it's because of questions arising from one of the alleged victims. What's to become come of this documentary on the record? Well it is going to show at the festival I mean I think there is the question whether or not Sundance was going to pull it The fact that Oprah Winfrey withdrew her support that apple. TV Hit pause in. The documentary is very unusual. And Kirby and amy have said listen. We think we've made a really good good film. We don't understand what they are complaining about. All of the edits and suggestions up until the time. The picture was locked where minor little things it does feel feel like Russell. Simmons complained to Oprah about the documentary. It's unclear if Oprah thought it was unfair or that featured one woman story over others the Booze GonNa show but for a film to go to the festival with this much. Uncertainty is highly unusual. Yeah not to get too far afield on this but I wonder if Oprah pulling away from this the project could somehow damage her own brand in this in this era of me too. Well I think she has said that. She believes the women who are accusing Russell Simmons of sexual assault and harassment. So I don't think she's saying I am not believing them anymore. I think she has to her. Mind legitimate questions about the documentary. Yeah it is important that she is on board or not on board because her producing does suggest that there is a level of quality ability and credibility to it and the fact that she's leaving it does ultimately damage. I think the standing of the film Another film to ask you about. Was this four part documentary. On Hillary Clinton Clinton. It'll be available on Hulu. She will also be attending Sundance for the first time to do promotion for this film. What you know about it and you know any any buzz around it? I guess I know a fair amount about it I'm GONNA be doing. QNA With Hillary Clinton at the festival is a four part series. That has a behind the scenes footage of her running against against Donald Trump. But it's really about her political career and about how things stand today so words at all. Hillary is a participant in this documentary. It s you said she'll be at the festival and she'll be talking with me. She says a lot of the documentary. I hope she says even more when we sit down to have a conversation. There's one other film I wanted to ask you about. And that's a a little film called feels good man and it's an indie production looking at the rise of of this comic pepe the frog that was actually created by L. A. based cartoonist and it sort of became an emblem for the outright. Who took this image and kind of started using it for antisemitic means racists memes all kinds of really nasty stuff? What do you know about the film and Are you going to see it? Yeah I'm definitely going to see. The artist is named fury. And it's about how something something becomes an icon for hate. And how the artist behind that I contract reclaim it and I think if you look more broadly at a lot of the documentaries that are playing the festival a lot of them are about what's going on in the world right now. There's a new documentary about the kids who survived the park. Land shooting about what they're doing to fight against against Gun. Violence US kids. I think that there's another documentary called early. Bird it's about the helicopter news pilot Zoey Tur and about what her works has about the tabloid of news and the Oj. Trial Voice State is a documentary about seventeen year. Old Boys a thousand from Texas says who join up to build a representative government from the ground up so wherever you look Especially in documentaries. There are a lot of films about the current state of the country. And what we might do to fix it. And what are some of the feature films. You're looking forward to checking out. I know that things that are kind of top of our sundance card include downhill. This is a remake of the movie force majeure a Foreign Language move from a couple years ago it stars. Julia Louis Dreyfuss Will Ferrell. It's made by nat facts and Jim Rash. Who did a movie called called way way back not that long ago Vigo Mortenson who is one of my favorite actors hell yeah written directed stars in a movie called following that I think is partially in Spanish? So there's nothing Vigo can't do. There's an Anthony Hopkins movie based on a play called the father. There's a movie about Gloria Steinem in many different iterations directed by Julie. Taymor you might know her from the Lion King. You know the other thing that we should talk about our number of movies that are going to sundance that are looking Ford distribution and one of the things that a lot of people forget is that Sundance is not only a film festival. It's a film market and it'll be really interesting to see given how a poorly some of the movies from last year as well at the Box Office if the checkbooks will be open s much as they were a year ago.

2020 Golden Globes Predictions
"I'm Shawn Fantasy and this is the big picture of conversation show about predicting the results of an award show do not respect. That's right Amanda. The Golden Globes are nearly here. They are the conclusion of one of the more fun weekends of the year. We'll have NFL wild card weekend starting and then Dispatch the sped award. Show Fun for you nightmare for me. I will go straight from the eagles which my husband is too invested in into ricky surveys haltingly. Golden gloves so prepare for Sunday night attitude from Amanda yes I will be preparing for a weird attitude likely from ricky traverse one of the more more unusual figures to host an award show in the last ten or twenty years. He's back hosting Golden Globes. Were going to be predicting the results of some of these races which are chosen by ninety anyone mysterious foreign journalists Jervis was selected by these people to host the show in part because he has been the host of some successful editions of the Golden Globes. Last year was a different kind of Golden Globes humira call was hosted by Andy Sandberg and Sandra did not recall that. Until you said just now I think that I thought that that it was going to signal a new way forward for the Golden Globes. I don't know not necessarily a more progressive way forward but just the different kind of approach to hosting Alaska races back. What's your take on these days? Why are we still doing this? That every that's kind of where I am. I just like no thanks. I've moved on. I think we as a TV and awards. Washing washing community have moved on feels stale and it and he's feels like just kinda trying to hold onto whatever influence he had like ten years ago he still has a huge following and I think he's still a very successful comedian per se but he feels very fake controversial as a professional. Now where sort of everything he does is more of a provocation than a joke. which is not really where you WANNA be now famously on this award show? He's quite sharp elbowed he takes shots at celebrities as opposed to patting them on the back as many Golden Globes hosts have in the past I guess this is fine. I you know you think like what happens. When crosses the line and we have an outrage moment how will we handle that in this otherwise very convivial award show? I don't think people will care either will be the requisite op-eds or takes or whatever and perhaps that will distract from whatever terrible awards. The Hollywood foreign press gives out You know and maybe we'll put all of our anger into that and then we can just have an award. It's show maybe that's maybe it's a nice way of of dividing the components. Do you think we're queudrue vase was up for the joker and joker think he was auditioning against Joaquin now down He. He was auditioning for the Penguin. You know in the new one because everyone wanted to be the penguin You know this is a movie podcast broadcast but there are also a bunch of TV awards at the Golden Globes I. I haven't really paid much attention to the TV awards nor will be really prognosticating but yovany any sense of what's going. Go down here. TV was what were the big shows. Twenty nine thousand nine six session and fleabag will though shows win awards. What succession might succession session is nominated in drama along with big little lies the crown killing eve and wait for it then learn? They say that I watched the last year in the morning. Show who do not believe on the critics who came late to it and we're like wow the morning show is really become an investigation of me. Too Culture friends a dog wrote the last so it's more nutshell but anyway I still watched all of it. You could see it winning but you could also ASSOC- You know the crown seems like a very obvious when you can also see succession winning because the Golden Globes likes especially in the TV area to To get out ahead of the emmys succession has not yet won the major Emmy Award. This would be an announcement of succession as sort of the next great television. Show on Prestige Steve Cable. Whether that's still the case given the way that Netflix Amazon and all the other streamers have kind of barreled through the doors now is it will be interesting to see You know this. This is really weird. Best TV drama actress Jennifer Aniston. Olivia Colman Jody comber Nicole. Kidman Reese Witherspoon. Two nominations for the morning show. There are more billy crap. He's nominated for the morning show. If Billy Krupp wins for the morning show I take back half of everything I've said sad about the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is very strange. Maybe that's enough on TV awards. What else do we really want to make any sense things for succession fleabag everything else? I don't really care about. Let's let's start with something movie wise that I think is very relevant to this show. Do you think that this award show in. General is impactful on the the Oscar narrative in general or this year. Well let's start with in general. Yes I do because it just seizes attention and for a certain amount of time at a crucial moment and the awards are as much about attention economy as they are anything else. There are a lot of movies to see. There are a lot of voters who haven't quite quite caught up and I'm like oh I guess I should check this out and and sometimes I think it's reactive. Something wins and people are like I don't know about that. I'm GonNa make sure that I invest the other way but there isn't a fanfare around it. Everyone shows up for these. And it's televised and I just think the timing especially you can't help even if you're like this doesn't matter. I'm an ignoring it. We spend so much time talking about it. I do think it matters so last year of course Green Book won best drama and Bohemian. Wraps he won best musical or comedy though. I would argue. That Green Book is a comedy and Bohemian. rhapsody is neither a musical comedy drama. Those two films obviously competed heavily in one quite heavily heavily at the Academy Awards. Do you think that the results this year will sincerely affect the Oscars. Yes because the award season is much shorter this year. Nominations are in what voting begins today. That's that's insane. That's it's so fast and it's so compressed and I do feel like everyone is feels like if they're playing catch up. I'm still playing catch up on a couple of the Non Marquee categories. And I just think people will use this as a bellwether and also has an instruction action will of okay. Now I gotta go watch these three or I didn't like that this one so I'm going to do this. I don't know that it's one to one but yeah I think they're important. Would you argue that this is the most consequential Golden Globes in recent years. I guess so. Yes how strange. How strange I who have devoted so much of our lives to this it is? How do we let this happen? And I think you and I talked about at this early in the morning when the nominations were announced of. How have we allowed this group of people who tweeted airlines to become the major Oscar deciders? It's a very curious thing. Sometimes they do get stuff right. Yeah and sometimes they do vote in a manner that I think suggests like a clear lear narrative will be taking hold on something you know this year. There's an expectation. I'm getting ahead of myself. There's an expectation that Brad Pitt will win supporting actor. Brad Pitt is the consensus sensus favorite among almost every person. I've talked to to win best supporting actor that may not ultimately be the case. Maybe Al Pacino comes by. Maybe Joe Patchy comes by maybe Anthony Hopkins uh-huh bye-bye who knows it's a stacked category but among all the punditry for both the Oscars and the Golden Globes that I've read everyone agrees it's Brad Pitt. A part of that is because he's Uber famous and the famous is usually awarded here also the ingenue is usually awarded here. The morning show is sort of an ingenue at the at the Golden Globes this year. Wow maybe maybe a young performer. Who has never been who's never had a chance to win something before we'll also win here tonight to start with our predictions? Yes okay the first category. We're GONNA talk about his best motion picture foreign language now. This is notable because there is no universe in which this can reflect the Oscar nominations because there are two candidates here from France so are can also with a farewell will not qualify as foreign language. The first nominee is the Farewell Pedro Motive Painting Glory. Selena Gomez portability fire Bongino host parasite and lodge lease loomis Where was your heart? Tell you about this category category. I think this has to be parasite I think so too but okay international body. They've chosen to films is from France and they've basically chosen in American production a CO production and the farewell which is very popular seen by a great many people. They've been campaigning quite a bit. Yes also Pedro Almodovar's all trail possibly the most celebrated non-american filmmaker of the last twenty years. Twenty five years. Maybe it'd be overstating it he's in certainly in the conversation top five. That's all true. All Great Films Parasol is not eligible in either a drama or best picture drama or best picture a comedy Because it's forty which because that's how the Golden Globes work and Bongino is nominated for director and parasite is also nominated for screenplay I wish to signals to me that they really like parasite and this is the place where they can award parasite so you put your finger on something interesting. which is that people tend to look at the number of nominations especially amongst the small body like this as a clear indication of preference over other movies so once upon a time in Hollywood us five nominations at the Golden Globes? That must mean. It's a front runner in every category. Do you think that's true. Not In every category but I think that it means that there is interest in the film and that it will probably win something. I'm also kind of triangulating and and my picks because I don't think I think that they do try to actually sprinkle out awards among the movies that they do like so new spoilers but like I think this parasite parasite will triumph because it may not want other places interesting. I too am going with parasite. I think it would be insane to not go with parasite though I will be devil's advocating my way through this whole conversation. It's always voiced finds you podcast and live life with you Sean. Best motion picture animated amandus fever category frozen to how to train your dragon. The hidden world missing link Toy Story. Four and the Lion King which I find to be the funniest nomination here because the lion king was not submitted as animated feature to the Academy Nevertheless LS Globes has decided to nominate here. I would think twice. Sorry for yes I think that would be the only answer okay. I think that's the only truly beloved loved Film on this lineup. I think that's the only both critical and commercial success that tends to be the kind of wins. Best animated feature which is one of the more interesting features Church of the animated feature categories to me. Is that very rarely do films that are not commercially successful win there but all also also. You can't just be commercially successful. You have to be a masterpiece in the zone which is why pigs are winding picks ours when one almost every year at the Golden Globes since its inception except for last gear when Dino at one now I suck Spiderman Song. Oh Yeah that was a good movie. I was a great toy story. Four th. That's boring category. Hopefully they put that one up
Screen Actors Guild Reveals Award Nominees
"Welcome to the frame Steven Cuevas filling in for John Horn our broadcast was preempted today for special coverage of the presidential impeachment proceedings. But we bring you this special podcast addition to talk about the screen actors Guild Award nominations which were announced today and what better person to call on John Horn. WHO's on assignment assignment in New York? Hey John Hey Steven how are you. Okay so let's start with the nominees for outstanding performance by a male actor in a leading role. What do we got so the nominees? He's were Christian. Bale from Ford versus Ferrari Leonardo di Caprio for once upon a time in Hollywood Adam driver from marriage story Joaquin Phoenix from joker car. And then probably the surprise in the category is turned Edgerton. Who Played Elton John and rocket man? If you start looking at who isn't in I think. Probably the most was notable exclusion as Robert Deniro for his lead role in the Irishman. He is getting a lifetime. Achievement Award Screen Actors Guild Award. So maybe that was part of the math but Jonathan Pryce was not nominated from two popes. Adam Sandler was not nominated from uncut gems and also left out of the competition was Antonio Banderas for pain and glory. Yeah it was a little surprised to see Bandera slept out you and I talked about that film and I think we agree that it was kind of career. Defining performance Let's move on to the lead actress. Category Who have their we have Cynthia Areso from? Harriet Scarlett Johansson from marriage story. The neon go from us. Charlie's therein Erin from bombshell and Renee Zellweger from Judy not a lot of surprises there. There were two women of color. The surprise I guess was that that search or Ronin was not nominated for little women some people thought Aquafina might have gotten in from the farewell. In fact little women did really badly today in the screen actors Guild L. Dominations and how about supporting role in the mail categories some pretty juicy performances. There are some really good pegues. Jamie Fox was nominated for Justice mercy. Tom Hanks Sup- Played Fred. Rogers and a Beautiful Day in the neighborhood. A couple of actors from the Irishman Al Pacino. And Joe Patchy and then Brad Pitt from once upon a time in Hollywood I said earlier. Jonathan Pryce was not nominated for playing Pope Francis in the two popes. Anthony Hopkins was not nominated for playing Pope Benedict in the two popes as well and this is also one of those weird categories in terms of. WHO's supporting and WHO's lead? It's one of those things where the studios can kind of say to the screen actors guild and the academy and other words as we think. This person is a lead this person's supporting I mean. They're two popes are mostly onscreen for the the same time. And you have Brad Pitt. Who is up for supporting actor? Leonardo DiCaprio for lead actor and once upon a time in Hollywood. I think he put a stop. Watch on it Leo. Joe Might have like twenty seconds or screen time. I don't know it feels like that's kind of tricky. Math and Tom Hanks's probably star of a beautiful day in the neighborhood. Even though he shares there's Screen time with another character again. The studios got to decide of the actors. Don't vote somebody in that category than they don't get nominated yes. Some people might be especially puzzled by the Tom. Hanks category for him winding up in the supporting actor. Can you explain that a little bit like why why that is well. I think if you look at that that film you can say that even though. It's a movie about Fred Rogers. It's really about the journalist whose life is transformed by meeting with Fred Rogers and something similar happened. In the supporting actress. Category according to Variety Kathy Bates is in this film by Clint Eastwood. Call Richard Jewel rule and she's been getting some awards attention in the supporting actress. Category but according to Variety Warner brothers mistakenly submitted fitted her as a lead actress for the screen actors Guild Awards and she didn't get nominated and she didn't get nominated for supporting actress because they had submitted committed error in probably the wrong category. Well who else do we have in the category of supporting actress. Another pretty strong category. Laura dern from marriage stories Scarlett Johansson another nomination for Joe Joe Rabbit this time and then to actors from bombshell Nicole Kidman and Margot Robbie and finally Jennifer Lopez from Hustler's right. We have so we have Scarlett Johansson nominated for both lead and supporting actress rare A little bit but you know pretty. Good Year for Scarlett Johansson. I don't think you can fault any of those performances. I think they were both really strong. And you know she's playing opposite. Visit Adam driver. Who was nominated for marriage story? Joe Joe Rabbit as we're GONNA say in just a second got a little bit more attention as well so both nominations. I'd say we're served in both. Were in really good films. Let's finish up with the outstanding performance by a cast in a motion picture. Is it true that this winter is often a predictor for the Academy Award Best Picture winner in historically. Yes that has been true but if you look at the last two best picture winner shape of water and green book they weren't even even nominated for the Sag Ensemble Award so yes. It is a good thing to be nominated for in terms of Academy Awards because it's important to note the actress. Branch ranch is the biggest branch in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. So what the actors do in the screen actors. Guild awards is often a good harbinger of what the Oscar Asker voters might do. So the nominees for on Samba were bombshell. Which I think is a little bit of a surprise? Good news for that film. The Irishman Joe Joe Rabbit once upon a time time in Hollywood and the real surprise in this category was parasite which is a Korean film. It's only the second foreign language film in Sag History. The other one one was life is beautiful to get a nomination for the ensemble award. I think it's really important for parasite. I think it's interesting. THAT MARRIAGE BRIDGE STORY WASN'T NOMINATED FOR ENSEMBLE. Neither was little women and so all the power seemed to be going to parasite right now and I would have to say say once upon a time in Hollywood and the Irishman well there you have it this year's screen actors Guild Award nominations in the film category. John you may resume get your New York theatre going. Thank you Steve. And I'll go do it right now
An Interview with Actor Doug Hutchison
"Next guest has a wonderful film. Fi most notably his performance in nineteen thousand nine hundred green mile was probably wanting should have been nominated for certainly one should've one. He is one of the best actors on the planet. I consider him a friend. And this is our second take part two of directors that he has worked for his name is Doug Hutchison. Doug, welcome back part two of part two. Derek? Thank you. Thanks. It's good to be back. And thank you for that very flattering introduction. I appreciate we've talked about the academy. And I'm not gonna you know, go over beat the beaten path again. But you know, I just I was looking at the top two fifty today in the green mile as I want to say twenty four, you know. And it's probably yeah. But it should be a lot higher than that. But. No. I just I looked at you know, I just I'll never understand how they nominate people who gets nominated and so forth. But you definitely that's Deborah for anybody. Who knows even king anybody who knows who follow Stephen King? They know that you you that character. And that's not always the case, Stephen King movies or characters people. You'll miss the Mark, by many cases, you know. I appreciate that. Thank you. I mean that that means a lot to me. But you know, it's interesting. I we already had a show the academy that we don't have to rehash our quandary about the whole, you know, political aspect of it. But actually, I'll send these articles to affect you. Find him. I'm sure they're on line actually have scrapbooks stuff. Stuff that time. But Warner Brothers was actually pushing me for a nomination, and I have a few of their ads when they were pushing the and then something happened. And I think it was in house at one brothers. That's by as least what I was told by then manager and probably soom happened. But they were also pushing Michael Clark Dunkin, and they could they were pushing both of us for best supporting because they wanted, of course, best actor to go to Tom Hanks. And so anyway, I think somebody is finally went wait a minute. Would we doing here, we're we're splitting our vote if we're nominating nominating to actors from one movie? We're splitting our vote. So they ended up deciding to go with one actor for best supporting out of the green mile, and they went with Michael. And you know, it was I I won't lie that that I was excited. You know? Of course when it was. Seemingly happening. But when they made that decision I won't lie was disappointed. But I think they made the right decision. Be only because you know, Michael, not only put in amazing performance. But. It's very rare. If you look at the academy's it does happen. But it's know like Anthony Hopkins the silence of the lambs at cetera and that that amazing actor in. The old man. No, no country froze men ill country for old, man. Who's that have Gordon day? I think didn't he win or something? Yes for that will use Boquet. So it does happen that they'll go for the quote, unquote, Zilin or bad guy in the movie, Denzel one for training day. You know, he played a corrupt cops, blah, blah, blah. So it does happen. But more often it the the want. The winners are the ones who are playing the protagonists the heroes the the sympathetic characters the the actors who are you know, like playing real characters like Capote and Jamie, FOX when he did rage. Ray Ray, Charles. He don't things like that. So so it didn't surprise me faced with the decision. Wonder brothers decided to go with Michael. So I was happy for Michael, you know. But I I really was you know, we were all keeping our fingers cross. But. Active. Pretty funny story about that. But maybe for another day since we're gonna talk about directors. But when we were at the same awards, something kind of strange have. Thout save it over yet though. No, I won't know thinking of your time or some other actors Michael fast bender and twelve years a slave, which is one of the best movies historical ever. Yeah. He was nominated for. Yes. So yeah, it definitely happens. But you're right. It's kind of rare for it to happen. It doesn't
"anthony hopkins" Discussed on Westworld: The Recappables
"It's like anthony hopkins kinda dumb why would be a thing that you would want to wildly funny maybe young i'd i'd like a youtube short about that maybe i don't know video like was like anthony hopkins sir anthony hopkins doing like the you know just crazy stunt work that that that charlotte in this episode like blowing people's i mean i just don't understand how you go for quoting oppenheimer to saying chicken nuggets family like i don't i don't wanna see anthony hopkins do that so fair although i will say i'm not here but i'm planting my flag season three needs to be funnier the show cannot go for like five or six more seasons until it gets a sense of humor including the hosts i don't think sense of humor is what we need clarity short i think a lot of people's issues with the show is that the hosts it's hard to invest in them or care because they're not very lifelike ironically and they're not very relatable i think that actually the easiest thing they look i can't tell them how to rewrite the entire show the easiest thing they can do to get people to care about the host is to make them funny and like the sense of humor so i don't i don't totally disagree i just think that like i don't think that just like i i don't think that an eat the like you should be looking for the easy out here because i don't think humor is going to work anymore than like the sentimentality of the finale were grad i mean i think that i think that the deeper issue is again i like to show the way it is but if you want if you want to inject like another level of engagement you know with for for viewers into the show it's not it's not a sense of humor is like a sense of it's like self awareness humor can can lead out of that but it's like the entire show is about is about robots trying to discover self awareness but the show itself doesn't seem to events just the sort of wink that like your standard marvel movie does to be like yeah we know what this one there's like one instance of that in the second season i feel like that was when they were they have more could pull some of that stuff i was gonna say the when really re this exactly was was like there was a bunch of human hostages and then he was just like i'm gonna i'm gonna hack into his brain and turn up his compassion and then he's just like aggressively helpful like running the woman he says yeah exactly that was funny like that is the situational humor that i would like slightly slightly smallest negligible amount i agree i agree humor i just think that it's like it's actually a deeper issue and just trying like getting bruce vallance in there to right some patter for season three is not going to be the solution by the way bruce flanges i mentioned on the podcast go ahead next theory danny okay the valley beyond a lot of people just want quick explainer of what happened which i think is fair this is how i interpreted basically valley beyond is this wonderful digital world that's encrypted but it's like by the way before you say this i did this last night i'm sorry to cut you off at me but this did this sunk in a little bit more after we did the show it is sort of bonkers that people were using all these like throughout the season using all these weird vagaries to refer seemingly to the same concept right the value beyond the door the forge all this stuff is like oh this is whatever robot heaven is that's what this is and then in the finale it turns out they all had very specific definitions like as if everyone had some sort of pre cognition to see what the finale was gonna play out they meant different things kind of so the weirdest and the worst part is in addition to that it turns out the writers called the world they went into the sublime so the writers weren't even even value beyond that wasn't no the writers are calling the sublime they were calling the fords the valley beyond two different things created the door and they had their own word which actually is kind of a good representative example of some issues with the show because the first episode you have the.

"Oh yeah i mean should cheat she also like i don't know i again i think it all comes down to money right like how much money are they paying you to do this she's probably getting paid really well cape blanchett's probably paid really well i'm sure if marvel showed up and opened a briefcase that was full of an inordinate amount of money in ordinate an ordinance or inordinate there go amount of money that gosling would definitely do it yeah it's interesting when you look at and you break down who is in the mc you because when you look at anthony hopkins with anthony hopkins was in transformers last night so he's also doing westworld to when like westworld okay show but like anthony hopkins man he just trying to get paid he wants to check did you see video of him going insane on twitter he posted no oh you didn't see that check that out right i have yeah oh god what's going on with him check it out trill anthony more online anthony hopkins is in ted three i that wouldn't shock me at all actually again he was in transformers last night here you go here's another one would you rather always sit in the best seats in the theater but be next to someone with really bad b o or always have to sit the first row so we talked about this when we saw ready player one the person behind me and ken jak had shoes off the entire movie and socks and feet spilt like shit i just assume sony with riff and asked the whole time but then we looked up and the guy had no shoes on and that was an incredibly unpleasant but it was fairly unpleasant for a decent amount of the movie on the other hand i don't have the front row sucks i've seen one moving the front row is the hangover.

"Beating allot her improvisation skills are not really up to snuff yet robert ford shows up an anthony hopkins voiceover cameo at the very least which is great and it's exciting ford shows up until arnold you gotta let go at some point now used to find this baby has charming any allows arnold to pull the loris from what we can assume i think was the sales pitch with logan that she was going to be a part of that whole scene and she's obviously not in the end but the fact that anthony hopkins is voicing ford here got to feel like we're going to get like a full on anthony hopkins at some point this season right yeah definitely gave me hope that we're not done with hannibal lector he will be back yeah i really am eager to to see what is in store because i my conventional thinking was it's really good for the story to kill robert ford at the end of season one with the way that the resetting the status quo and letting the parks wedding the hosts off the leash and the parks and being able to have them kill guests and find themselves and to have quote unquote the god of that world removed i think is a really great dematic idea but also just on a practical level i always bigger anthony hopkins is gonna do one season of westworld and he's going to be fine like it and like he's good he's got other stuff to do but i guess he's like he's making crazy dancing videos on twitter media you've seen that right he paints he's an amazing painter it seems like he's got time.
