Ep. 141 - White men dominate the Golden Globe nominations

"The Golden Globe nominations which just announced a few minutes ago and so many of us are really disappointed. Not because we think people need that kind of validation. I'm going to address arrests that in just a second. But those nominations are very important for filmmakers for actors and actresses for everybody. WHO's nominated and I got a text from my daughter? uh-huh seventeen year old who is a budding filmmaker and she was just disappointed. Not only because the best director category it was all men five men it was that way in most categories for producers and everything else so today I'm GonNa talk a little bit of bothell Golden Globe. Nominations in why it bothers me. Not because I'm I'm looking for outside validation for all the people in those fields there's a real reason and I want to unpack and explain it. This is Shaun King. You listening to the the break down the breakdown and breakdown. As a general rule in life I try to make it such that. I don't crave brave the recognition from from Beit mainstream media mainstream awards like I stopped years ago caring or hoping or desiring recognition or awards from mainstream groups because I understand that a lot of what I do really is counter. Cultural is often a critique of of the mainstream beyond mainstream politics mainstream media. And so I don't expect those organizations or groups to really even even respect me because I'm in a place where I'm constantly challenging in critiquing them and even the very existence of this podcast of the Northstar of the breakdown is an open critique of the failures of mainstream media to be able to tell stories that just simply are being told anywhere else so I I never expect to be honored or awarded by the very people that I am critiquing daily. I have zero expectation of it and when awards are announced for for leadership for media for journalism. I don't apply for them. I don't expect to be nominated for them because I know that I've taken stands. That are often deeply unpopular with those varies sources. And yet I have to say that while I wish that was the case for black. And Latino filmmakers all filmmakers of color just to say like hey we don't need the recognition from the Golden Globes from the Academy Awards and on one emotional level for me. There is truth to that that today when all of the Golden Globe nominations shins were announced and they are overwhelmingly white maybe some of the whitest Golden Globe nominations. I haven't done the math yet. But I've studied the list over and over and over Oregon. Some categories are completely white consistently. They're completely white and and they are overwhelmingly male in all all the categories where men and women could be nominated Best director best screenwriter producer. All of these types of things that have women and men in available in including the best director category that has five nominees and again. They're all men and yet. I think there's a legitimate reason for us to be frustrated. And you of course you know we have to find our validation elsewhere elsewhere sometimes and I hope that all of those filmmakers and directors and writers and producers who deserve to be nominated today know that they are loved by I Their fans there viewers their supporters. And I hope they get validation from that but I I have to push back because while I can say hey I never expect to be recognized or awarded by mainstream sources in the film industry. Having a Golden Globe nomination is vital for your art. It's what allows you to negotiate better contracts tracks. It's what allows actors and actresses and filmmakers and set designers and producers and and and makeup artists than people. Who Do the score? When you can say I've been nominated for six Golden Globes or how one Golden Globe not not even that you want but that you were nominated it puts you in a powerful position and that nomination follows you everywhere you go for the rest of your life if they advertise a film that you do under your name? They may say Golden Globe nominated or Kademi award nominated these nominations. The Nation's in this industry are valuable. I mean I I would say that we could probably even do some math and attach patch a dollar amount to them. It just is something that allows a a level of credibility a level of power prestige to say you are a Golden Globe nominated actor actress director producer use or whatever and so on that level. It is a problem and listen. You can find your personal validation elsewhere. Of course us but in an industry where these nominations and eventually those awards matter that allow you to negotiate just on a much higher plane. These awards are vital they are essential and that's why I'm frustrated to look look at it and see that all the Co Ed category that. It's all men and that in almost every category Oy is many many of the categories are exclusively white and they are very few African Americans Or people of color nominated any categories but black folk in particular and it's frustrating and it gets back it's a chicken or the egg argument it gets back to. Who makes these nominations? They mean so much. They're so valuable. Well it's a group of just ninety people the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and I I'm not even going to necessarily go in on them but it too is an overwhelmingly white male consortium of Members of the Hollywood foreign press and I I know some people who liked him and some people who who who loathed them but either way again it the argument could be made that from a cultural troll perspective these this small group of ninety people. These folks are never going to who properly recognize art and artists and actors and actresses and directors. They're not gonNA recognize people from other races nearly as much as they would recognize people from their own. And you can push back on that but I just Wanna I just WanNa make the argument for the second that all of us see the world through the lens of our own culture and we do do that in ways that are often unknown to us the way we see the world the way we understand expand the world is just I nature and so if if you are a middle aged white male you you see the world through the lens of a middle aged white male that in a unique way way more than you probably understand just as a black man or a woman or or or any person of color if you are Muslim you you see the world through the Lens of not only your Muslim identity but through through Islam you see the world in ways that are field colored by your culture your faith your religion or nationality ethnicity and many people would say I no no I don't I don't I don't see the world through a white lens or a male Lens of course you do and it again operates in in a way that for you and I say this you know in a compassionate way for you you legitimately you may not understand how much your culture actually informs how you see the world it just does and so when and you get a group that is overwhelmingly white and overwhelmingly may on the set around and make their nominations hell. I Love Film and Television. And I'm going through these nominations. I'm like I don't even know who the hell some of these folk are and what these shows are because in my culture in my community on my twitter and facebook and instagram timelines folk aren't even talking about these shows and I'm not here to bash these artists because I think every artist white or not who got nominated is very gifted and their many shows on here. I love them great shows but when I look at best performance by an actor in a television series musical a comedy see no black folk not at all or actress. None you know I just keep going down the list. It's like Oh damn this is major white and again again. It doesn't mean that these shows weren't great. Let me get back to the chicken or the egg when you have a scenario where we're black folk and other people of color aren't getting these nominations. It then hinders their ability to get better quality roles and projects and funding funding in the future. And so it's cyclical when people of Color and women and other marginalized groups are not properly recognized is with these awards. It then just continues to perpetuate the reality over and over and over again when not a single woman is was nominated for best director. It again is a self fulfilling prophecy where people are going to continue to be more apt to hire men and as their director when the most talented women in the world are recognized properly. And that's just where we are. Listen I want to come back and close but I I have a quick announcement from one of our sponsors.

The continued impeachment hearings of Donald Trump. And I said said a few weeks ago. I said last week that it was my best guest that Donald Trump was going to be impeached in the house before Christmas and it absolutely appears at. That's going to be. The case of the impeachment process is moving forward very quickly and Republicans have themselves in a weird position they are saying. Hey these hearings aren't fair and we're not getting both sides of the story and I don't blame them for saying it it's ally like it's maybe the only thing they can say at this point. They can't dispute this case on the facts and so they have to focus on procedure to say like this process is a sham. But again and I've said this before the reason they don't have both sides quote unquote both sides testifying is because donald trump and almost his entire right ministration have refused to testify. So you can't. They've been subpoenaed. They have been requested to appear there. You can't refuse to testify then say hey. We don't have both sides here is i. Don't know the the problem with it is. I don't know that the average American who's watching this understands it and of course the problem is also how we digest media for the millions and millions of People Watch Fox News. They're not making it out like It's it's a fair process they are they are doubling down on the Republican and White House talking points that this whole process is a sham. Even though the only reason it's one sided at all is because trump trump in so many of the members of his team administration refused to testify. I know right now that if trump wanted to testify they would have him there in a heartbeat. If Rudy Giuliani wanted to testify you know. Democrats would have them there in a heartbeat and they've been subpoenaed. They've been requested tested. They refused and the same is true for Rick. Perry John Bolton and in Mick Mulvaney and so many others and so I think it do their refusal to participate. I think is a problem. I wish that Democrats I would have somehow forced them to testify and Yet here we are and I think they would wilt all all of those people would wilt under the pressure of just the most basic questions because they know that they've lied and misrepresented them in so many ways that's why are they refusing to testify yet. I do think in in a disturbing way that their refusal to testify is is a problem for Democrats because these people aren't there testifying it makes the process. Look at you know a bit. Incomplete and I wish there had been a way to compel if not trump himself to compel others to testify. I know that's being fought in the courts at the moment and and maybe there will be a way to force some of those members of the administration to testify. I think it'd be worth having and I think they would struggle to tell the truth under oath without violating leading that oath and I think they would they would struggle and they would struggle not to implicate trump and themselves in actual crimes crimes and and abuse of power. And so I think this process is going to move forward quickly so that I wanted to slow down. I just do wish that. They had forced that. Democrats had forced the hands of the Republicans to make the the closest members of the trump administration testify again. I continue to think that trump will be peace in the house. It could be this week Could it could be next week. I definitely think it appears that will happen before. Four the holiday but Here we are and again I push back on this idea that it's just a technicality. It's not a technicality. The the house is doing their job even if the Senate does not do there's and trump like most American presidents is already starting to think about his legacy and I saw something that leaked from the White House. That trump hates the idea idea that in history it will always list him as being an impeached president. But that's going to happen period and what happens. czyz these These get into White House that that end up caring deeply about what their name means throughout history and I think I think Donald Trump is going to be held as one of the worst presidents in American history. I think you'll be in the the bottom five life the bottom ten and The impeachment will put him down there. I think I would make the argument. That he was one of the five worst presidents of all time. There've been some horrible ones but he has to be right up there maybe even in the top two but He will be impeached. I'll be tracking along tomorrow. I'm going to analyze allies. Several cases of police violence that are going on all over the country in those stories. If we don't tell them those stories just simply aren't being told on the national level so we'll be right back here tomorrow force thank you so much.

Afghanistan Papers, Kickstarter Fail & Golden Globe Nominations - Tuesday, December 10th, 2019

"Today is Tuesday December tenth. What to not about a new report revealing what top officials really had to say about the war in Afghanistan and articles of impeachment could be announced today Eh plus Russia banned from the Olympics a warning about star wars and the Golden Globe nominations surprises and snubs welcome welcome to the newsworthy? All the day's news in less than ten minutes fast they're fund and on the go America Mandy. Thanks so much for being here. You're ready. Let's do this. A new record from the Washington Post found. US officials repeatedly lied about America's longest war for for years. The Post is referring to the documents as the F. Ghanistan papers a reference to the Pentagon papers which were leaked documents. That showed massive failures in the Vietnam War and caused uproar in the early Seventies. This time it's about the war in Afghanistan. The Post spent three years and filed two lawsuits against the government to get a hold of hundreds of confidential the interviews with more than four hundred key players in the war including a three star army general. The top officials interviewed said. The war became impossible to win and the strategy was unclear. Clear one general said quote. We didn't have the foggiest notion of what we were undertaking. Well the navy seal called the war a waste of a trillion dollars and other commanding officer said they couldn't get anyone to define what winning actually meant but US officials were painting a very different picture in public saying the strategy was working and progress was being made in one interview view. An army colonel said quote every data point was altered to present the best picture. Possible keep in mind this war has been going on for eighteen years and lasted through three administrations and Bush Obama and trump in response to the new report. The Pentagon is defending itself. Saying officials did not mean to mislead the American people and what was said in those interviews should be taken taken with a grain of salt because everyone who spoke had the benefit of hindsight today could be the day house. Democrats announce at least two articles articles of impeachment against President Trump. The site sources who say these formal charges will likely be abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. Abuse of power would accuse the president trump of putting his own interests above the country's when pressuring Ukraine to conduct certain investigations against his political rivals and the obstruction of Congress part is for stonewalling Congress. Congress as they work to investigate for example not providing certain documents and telling White House officials to ignore subpoenas in fact both parties laid out their cases yesterday and what was likely be last televised hearing before a House vote and there were some heated moments. Democrats called Trump's action a clear and present danger to the twenty twenty election and national security. And they say it's urgent agent. They Act now but Republicans criticized that process. Saying Democrats are racing to push impeachment through ahead of next year's election and are still trying to overturn the two thousand sixteen election. Lawmakers in the house are expected to vote on the articles of impeachment. Possibly before Christmas murder. Calm this week. A quick update now on that volcano eruption in New Zealand. Unfortunately the death toll has gone up the BBC reports at least five people are dead and eight others are still missing thirty. Four others survived though some are still in the hospital remember. The volcano erupted Monday on White Island in New Zealand. CNN reports a large group of tourists were visiting the volcano at the time the BBC says it's too dangerous for emergency officials to go on the island right now because it could erupt again. They did send an aircraft to look for more survivors with no luck. Those missing are from all over the world including the US China and Australia. Russia is banned from all major sporting events for the next four years including the next two Olympic Games the punishment from the World Anti Doping Agency means Russia's flag name and anthem will not be allowed at the Summer Olympics in in Tokyo next year but NBC sports reports Russian athletes can still compete without representing their country as long as they get the okay from anti doping authorities. So why did does happen. Russia has been accused of tampering with lab results. ESPN reports Russian officials allegedly planted fake evidence and deleted files linked to positive doping tests to basically basically protect athletes who are using drugs to cheat but some Russian officials are calling the ban unfair and an attempt to hold back the country but the BBC reports others think the punishment Schmidt doesn't go far enough sports illustrated named it's twenty nine thousand nine Sportsperson of the year and it soccer star Meghan re Pinot. Rufino helped the US. Women's national team win the World Cup and sports illustrated says it's also because she's been one of the leading soccer players in the fight for equal pay and women's rights.

Netflix Sweeps Golden Globe Nominations

"Artificial intelligence is no longer the stuff of science fiction. It's one of the key underpinnings of modern digital first business. What role does it play in creating a better customer experience the find out when we return to the transformation minute comcast business? This is your tech news briefing for Tuesday December remember tenth. I'm Qatari Yoga from the newsroom. Of The Wall Street Journal in New York Golden Globe. Nominations dropped on Monday morning and net flicks dominated entertainment reporter. John Jorgenson will explain what that means for the future of Nutley streaming and the movie industry. That's up in just a minute. But first let's check some headlines. A coalition of thirteen states and DC are suing to block a twenty six billion in dollar merger between Sprint and T.. Mobile they are the third and fourth largest carriers by subscribers trump administration officials approved the deal earlier this year after they forced several concessions those included arming satellite. TV provider dish with the building blocks for a built from scratch cell phone network to preserve the markets for player structure. But the the states say that's not enough and putting together to wireless companies with a record of aggressive discounts would make cell phone plans more expensive shares of both T. mobile and sprint or down. Two and a half percent of the closing bell on Monday Amazon has filed a complaint against the trump administration over the ideal. No we're not talking about baby yoga. We're talking about the joint enterprise Defense Infrastructure Djeddai contract. That's a ten billion dollar. Cloud Computing Contract Amazon says the Pentagon passed it over because of quote quote improper pressure from President Trump. Amazon was long considered a favourite for the I contract but the deal ultimately went to Microsoft in its complaint Amazon says. The president repeatedly attacked the company and singled them out over political differences with company CEO and founder. Jeff Bezos who also owns the Washington Post. The Pentagon has said there were no the external influences on the jet. I selection process including from the president. Essentially they say Microsoft was just more qualified for the job. And it's no secret that new tech companies have been a major driver for job growth in the past few decades but a new study shows that ninety percent of that growth has been clustered in just five. US Cities San Francisco and Cisco Seattle San Jose Boston and San Diego and yes three are in California. While companies say the concentration of jobs helps them innovate at a much. Faster faster rate it also means that most of the country gets left out of that economic growth. Welcome back to the transformation minute from comcast business. How is artificial intelligence playing a role in creating a better customer experience? We asked unease hasty. SV of comcast business. This sort of technology will allow brands like cruise cruise ships to offer experiences. That are more tailored to you than what you ever thought possible. They are now using facial recognition to blink back to your preferences an order to recommend customized experiences for you based on those preferences the the award season is officially here and the Golden Globe. Nominations dropped early Monday but this year streaming services where the star of the show net flicks dominated the award. Nominations the nation's with thirty four honors across the movie and television categories here. Explain how Netflix fits into the bigger movie. And television industry picture is our entertainment payment reporter. John Jorgenson John. Thanks for being with US my pleasure. So let's talk about this. Net flicks came in strong this year. What does this tell us about the power in the industry right now and where it's going? I think the awards shows and the award of the races religious can have reinforced the conversation sation. That's been happening. In a Lotta ways as these dreamers have come in and really kind of with big-spending and lots of viewers really started to dominate the conversation in and dominate the industry. So it's got to be frustrating for traditional studios to see Netflix especially common and just take over the nominations for the Golden Globes and Apple. Of course arse is very happy today because you know only about a month after launching. They've got their first Awards nominations for its show the the morning show. So Oh no no one really thinks of the Golden Globes as the ultimate arbiter of quality. In fact it's known for its eccentricity but these were nominations really do kind kind of drive home this narrative. That's been taking over in Hollywood that these dreamers are not just a force to be reckoned with but you know a major threat. Yeah I mean if we back up just a little bit. Net afflicts has gone from being a platform for other people's content to being this huge force. As you said I mean we think back to the fact that it's I I originals. Were in twenty thirteen house of cards. Hamlet Grove Orange is the new black and then he didn't have very many new originals until really last year and this year right. Yeah I mean what you're seeing on the movie side is kind of a sequel to what happened on the television side Just a few years ago as you point out twenty 2013 was the your house of cards came out and put them on the map With their first EMMYS and Golden Globe nominations and then since then they've really kind of accumulated a lot on the TV side. On the film side the first first nomination they received was in two thousand sixteen and that was kind of a nominal nomination for a piece of nation and here we are just a couple of years later with seventeen in and more than any other major studio so is this kind of super accelerated pattern that they have and that's also a reflection of them flooding the market with releases on the television decide. They put out so much stuff that course it makes sense that they get these nominations. That's a little bit different film side where they're not putting a ton of original feature films yet what they are putting now. Are these really sort of big spending awards. Magnet type projects like the Irishman as the biggest example with Martin Scorsese. So you really Kinda see how oh quickly. They're they're cycle ramps up. Let's talk a little bit about that strategy You mentioned the Irishman that is an example of a movie that actually he played in theaters and on the stream platform and it was in theaters for just three weeks. But that's a widest release of any of their films so far. Are we going to start seeing seen this more and more I think the theatrical releases an important part obviously that's how they qualify for these awards shows But it's really a tug war in terms of their strategy. I mean I think that they're only doing it for the prestige and to qualify and also to satisfy filmmakers. But what they really want is for the net afflicts platform to be your cineplex. You're everything so you could really see. How the Irishman it did get that nice release and yet conversation around? The movie didn't really spike when the public until it hit Netflix. Same with marriage story which also was heavily nominated? I think that's and we saw that as well right. There was a big back and forth between theaters and streaming services over when the movies come out on streaming services when they go into theaters. What is that debate Looking like right now now. It hasn't kind of resolved itself at all. In fact is it just got more and more tents around the Irishman. What you're seeing is general? Blurring of genres blurring of the platforms. And you really makes you wonder what qualifies as a says. Cinema directors and filmmakers really want to see their stuff on the big screen. And that's a hugely important thing to you. Their vision but Netflix the world netflix seizes. A lot more gray. You know. They see They want to serve their subscribers. And movie goers in whatever form and they you think that the the the streaming platform is the best way to do that you keep bringing up the subscribers of the streaming services so why are winning these awards so important to them. I think what you point out. There's sort of the ultimate irony of all this and that I don't think most viewers of these shows and movies. This is actually care that much and in fact you see the ratings and the audience for these award shows go down and people questioning the relevance because they don't necessarily think there's an important the the reason they're so important remain so important is because it's just a big flashing billboard to Hollywood and the industry and the people who are deciding which deals to make which studio radio to go with and which company they want to be aligned with. I mean it's interesting because what you just said to me. Sounds like I get someone like Scorsese to work with me as a production company because as I can prove that I'm capable of putting together a production that actually get that award and yet you're you're saying the viewers don't care. I think more or less you know. I think people are excited to see Scorsese film in their home if they want to spend the time that three and a half hours and break it up the way they want but going back to that idea of the message sense of the industry it comes down to you know. Do you WanNa be on the winning team. And more importantly I don't know if the lore of awards is really what got a score score. Says he working with Netflix. It's probably a lot more coming down to you. Know we're going to spend the money on your production to and give you all the leeway and rope you need is a creative To make the kind of film you want and the the fact that they will give you that huge budget and they will give you that. Runway of creativity is really kind of I think the biggest currency in Hollywood but the fact that it also can translate into nominations that certainly as icing on the cake. Is it paying off for Netflix. Though I mean you're talking about writing the checks for big budget films Elms where's the balance sheet there. Well that's a good question. I mean I think analysts to continue to really question whether Netflix massive spending And chasing of of creators is really GONNA work out in the long run I think especially the TV side which I cover more often. You can see see that. Netflix is desperately trying to create enough buzzy originals to replace all these big license shows which are disappearing and going to other services. So they're they're really sort of doing their best to play catch up not only play catch up with the takeover of their own originals. Because that's where the real value is excellent Don Johnson.

It's a collection of clothing for anybody who is part of a fan a and you want some really high quality closed for the brands that you love so much.

Roca what did you WanNa talk about now. Little fantasy football something people in those movie top. We're real quick coast cloudy sports fans who don't say yeah you light up to three. Am in the morning when you're suffering through a little bit of tuberculosis your make changes and you doubt yourself and you sit Brahim most who got thirty two points yesterday yesterday and you lose two pair of number up by one damn boy. Can I want to be fair to you though I was watching as you weren't changing you're like Oh thank God. He's not changing his lineup. But then when I woke up Sunday morning and saw that you changed I thought you made some smart. It wasn't I feel like it wasn't a loss that should make you feel bad about how you set your lineup. Audrey went with Martin Freeman for. It wasn't a bad decision. I I just got stupid. Lucky on like a bad injury to which which made me very sad and I hope I hope or shod penny heels out fast. That was a rough one but That's where we all stand with fantasy football. I believe I had a playoff win in Adam Smith in the booth had a playoff face. Jeff and Jack and that's where it stands right now. Are you into fantasy track when he started talking head of feeling all right. Let's get back on track with our box office talk here. The top five of the weekend was frozen to coming out on top with thirty four point. Seven million dollars then we had knives out at number two with fourteen point two million Ford v Ferrari coming in at number three with six point. Five three seven million followed right behind by Queen Slim which made six point five three million and and then finally it was a beautiful day in the neighborhood with five point two million briefly for the top five. Is there anything that surprise you. That caught your eye that held stronger than you expected. I'm just happy that there are so many like interesting movies. That aren't necessarily sequels in in the top five. I think it's awesome. It's a testament to all all of those movies that their quality films that People WanNa see and are turning out for he had him on the more things change the more they say the same. Sorry I'm still suffering through this stuff but I love the fact back to December. It's Oscar season. It's award season. These are the movies. There's supposed to come out so for all this talk about superheroes summer tent poles and they're swallowing following up these other movies here. We are again with these. Movies are top five. Their unusual queen slim has nothing to do with knives out. Ford versus Ferrari is nothing new beautiful day in the neighborhood. Good and of course frozen to right at the top so to me. I like this collection. If you will further down yes maybe they didn't do as well but you've got dark waters twin bridges playing with fire midway and then and you get to joker at ten still hanging on so for me. I think I like it. It's a nice variety for this time of year. It's not another slate of superhero movies. Here it is. It is another or Disney movie even though frozenness to within this group of five it's still a unique selection of films and unique set of options. That you have out there but it's still a Disney movie and I gotTa bring up the Disney right now. Because they had an especially big milestone so Disney's record for the highest box office in a calendar year had been crushed rushed by Disney itself so Disney crossed the ten billion dollars threshold this weekend. Beating two thousand sixteen seven point six billion dollars and just to give you a little perspective here. That ten billion doesn't even count the Fox box office hall. And if you add that in Disney's total worldwide box office in two thousand nineteen amounts to eleven point nine four billion and keep in mind star wars. The rise of Skywalker has not even hit theaters yet so they're making a ton of money and they're making a ton of money on you. Know not original films on the continuations of Franchises and sequels the reimagining of old properties. So even though it is is very exciting to see some different titles especially a super original movie like let's say knives out and also something like Queen and slim in the mix. The box office is being dominated by movies. Like the vendors endgame lying can captain Marvel Toy story four Aladdin and now frozen too and soon to be Star Wars. Yeah but you and I have this battle all the time. It's business versus art this business. Clearly they know what they're doing if they're breaking the records and look they're gonNA factor in the Fox stuff which I think's GonNa be another one point five billion dollars in total cash so that's great but what do you expect. They own sixty percent of the market so breaking the record doesn't seem like I don't know if it seems that big of a deal because as you acquire more and more property in you acquire more and more of the of the screenings in the theaters. Of course you're GonNa have more opportunity to break these records but overall right now I'm okay with because they're producing quality product. The problem comes comes later down the road if the theaters are being inundated with they're not so quality product and other films aren't being allowed to bust out and take those screens and get seen. That's where the concern among people for right now clearly they're making good money and they're satisfying viewers demands for good fun entertainment and interesting entertainment. So you have any concern Silas with Disney eaten up much of the market. No because I think that people will go to see what they WANNA see. I get that frozen is is sort of a force of nature churn. Disney is a force of nature at this point and there are certain movies that they're gonNA put out and even if they're not excellent films are GonNa make a ton of money and that's fine like I. It's it's it's fine to have that kind of entertainment i. I'm just glad that people are coming out for things that they may never have heard of before. I don't even necessarily think they'd did like sequels versus originals. Are The problem I I would happily see. A sequel. The knives out I feel like more ben one long mysteries would be awesome to see I think what's awesome about about it. Is that people are hearing. Here's something I don't associate with. I heard it's really good. I want to check it out that. That's the positive awesome. Yeah that that really excites me. And I hate jumping from the positive to the negative but we can't conclude this box office conversation without bringing Playmobil. And right now because Oh no what happened with that movie. So playmobil is an St X.. Release and it is. What is the record here? So Oh had something like six hundred sixty thousand dollars three days from over two thousand theaters and Oh God a two hundred eighty two dollars per theater theater Average in that right there makes it the third worst opening average ever for a film opening in two thousand or more locations. I mean I don't know Louis that I read it is part of the problem was that S. T. X.. Kind of just gave up. I don't think I saw any marketing for this. And I know I am not the target audience for playmobil movie. But as someone who exists in this bubble and also someone who watches a good deal of TV you would think seen a plane will be on TV spot at some point. I have a sister-in-law who loves loves. Playmobil has a has an amazing mobile collection. I don't think she was aware this movie was coming out. Yeah I I was wondering about when these things happen with automation in certain studios like is this like the producers where they purposely put this thing out and no it's terrible they've got to take a loss but the recoup the insurance so they can keep going like they know like there's so many weird animated films that come out and get barely any publicity if they're not from a massive studio and then rarely do well. You're like well. Why did you sink all all this money because an Ma phil takes so much time? This is a different situation. And I believe this breakdown that I have in my notes might have come from boxoffice Mo Jo and I think that they had written S. T. X. picked it up for domestic distribution after global road filed for bankruptcy in two thousand eight. So we don't really know how much they paid for it but on top of that apparently S. t. x. x is emphasizing the use of variable pricing for the film which includes a five dollar a ticket experiment to encourage and incentivize audiences. Audience is to see the film while allowing theaters begin to explore value pricing for a first run movie. Welcome at work if you're not advertising incorrectly if people don't even know about early in this case as long as it didn't work yeah so I wanna know what was the actual logic in this picking it up and putting in no effort in marketing. The movie how did you expect it to do well. And how can you use that variable pricing acing and get legitimate results. If you don't put the same amount of a marketing and awareness behind the Phil I don't even know what it's about even know who who voices any of the characters is famous the voice characteristic. Obviously we're doing voiceovers very aware of animated stuff that comes out but I do remember. I mean back when when I did more of a daily newspaper like I remember covering this movie when it was first announced years and years ago as the Lego movie was in development it was oh and play mobiles doing their own version and it kind of felt like when Lego movie hit that. Oh well they're gonNA fast track mobile because that that could easily be just like the legal right right well. The voice cast included some familiar names. We had and you Taylor. Joy Gabriel Bateman. Who was just in child's play? Jim Gaffe again again. And then we also had Meghan trainor Adam Lambert Keenan Thompson and Daniel Radcliffe interesting. Yeah so That that came mm-hmm and went. Yeah we're probably not gonNA hear much about that in the near future and now I just just just because no one else hands on a five five dollars pricing given how much as spent maybe they spent the money to buy it for the sake of experiment with that. I don't know I mean. At least this has had a pretty good year despite I mean like they had the hospitals and everything in the year and hustlers. Yeah so like to pre-bus the upside this year. Yeah it was early this year. That's messing with my head right now. Oh I can't handle it all right. Let's go into one of our really big topics of the day. The Golden Holden Globe nominations. So there is a lot to cover here. We're going to go a category by category and focus particularly on the best motion picture categories director director. And we're going to hit all the acting categories if we miss anything. Don't worry we're going to cover it on collider. FDIC this week but just to give you guys a little bit of a picture of what happened. Marriage story got six nominations. Once upon a time in Hollywood got five and so did the Irishman let us go category by category. Now kicking kicking it off with best motion picture. Drama the nominees. There are nineteen seventeen. The Irishman joker marriage story. And the two popes. What say you guys? Anything surprise you in this one surprise the two publishers. One of these quiet little engines. That could that. No no one's dominating the anybody for actor nobody's dominating for director and stuff but for some reason. It's and it's one of these Netflix as well. That keeps pushing and pushing and pushing but gets into these best picture conversations. I find to be fascinating. I'm happy. Nineteen seventeen is there. I think that should win best picture. So maybe it'll start that process anything surprise Asia unless stylists so. I haven't seen two popes. I've seen everything else in of that list. I would pick Irishman. I loved the Irishman. I think I would probably really pick Irishman to. I mean of the list. We we all have this conversation. All the time where the Golden Globes aren't necessarily predictors of. What's going to get nominated but it is nice to the? Have it come right around this time of year when you could start to put everything into focus a little more. And if I look at this list to that I think are going to get bumped off the best picture nomination list are probably two popes at this point and I still don't quite know what to make of joker I feel so confident about joker in the best actor category. But I'm I'm not quite sure what to make of it elsewhere. We're GONNA get to more when we talk about best director but I am not surprised at all to see it pop up here for the Golden Globes especially especially when you've got the drama and then the comedy that really changes the game and it makes it an impossible one to want. As far as predicting Oscars go a little women. Would little women have qualified for the drama category. Or is it the musical comedy category. And I am Ed. I imagine that would have been dropped right so to me. That's the big snub in my opinion. Yeah I think it'll woman is a fantastic movie for two hours twenty minutes to keep my attention for God sakes about this story. I was brilliant very well directed by Greta. Gerwig like I said if you like she she took a leap here as a director. And a not have this even nominated and only one nomination from the entire film is ridiculous would have been drama. Because search ronin acting in Nomination is in the drama category. I mean that's one I think that's one of the biggest snubs across the board. You don't quite know why this would be but it did only get one nomination Asian and not to jump around here but when you look at the best director category we we all well know that the Globes have a problem when it comes to nominating female directors. especially if you're Natalie Portman urban sort of took them to task in presenting awards and said like. Here's the all-male nominees. Yeah this is the thing that I brought this up with Perry off to Mike and Before we start the show I think the direction category Nass to be expanded to ten now is my personal opinion. I think if we could do with pictures that we can't do it with with best directors all these women got completely shut out from the stuff. What you've got little pedro motive are wasn't in this thing? Clint Eastwood is in Greta. gerwig innocent in this thing Josh benef- for Uncut gems wait. Let's just move on and we'll cover the best director. One writes the nominations for best director at the Golden Globes. Are Bong Jun Ho for parasite we have Sam Mendes for nineteen seventeen. Todd Phillips for joker. Martin Scorsese see for the Irishman and Quentin Tarantino for once upon a time in Hollywood. I look at that list and I think most of them are deserving absolutely Lulu so there's that side of it but I also think that Greta Gerwig should be on this show. It's not like we have a lack of female directors that are worthy of the nomination. Either it's like you have her. You've Marielle Heller. For Beautiful Day in the neighborhood you have Lawrence Ghaffari for Hustler is. It's like there's options out there and and who do we and the farewell to yeah the farewells. Where are for the farewell? Await the category. That you're gonNA tell me okay. I'll let you although he does like. I've said it already. Just think these best arts category needs to be expanded to ten Oscars as well enough. There are too many incredible directors. And if we're going to open the door the war for more diversity directing side both because of race and because of gender than we have to be nominated more people because they're going to get more opportunities. Look look at look at the list. It's is it all except for a bunch I think it's a white guys and he does ironic the guy I'd kick off his Tarantino. I thought it was a well directed film. But there's nothing. He didn't the film that he had done in China other films or another or eight of the field so to me. I wasn't like wowed by his direction. It was a good movie but I kicked him off absolutely for somebody else that could get a shot shot at this thing and I think the Golden Globes niece has some explanation here too because we look at the TV side. When the watchman a black lead show didn't get anything it's it's a little frustrating to see this happening over and over again it was supposed to be a global Hollywood? Foreign Press Crab. Come on step up to the plates you know I. It frustrates me. Overall is the second second highest awards ceremony. We get every year. I think it's even interesting to divorce it from from racer gender and just say like well obviously once uh-huh once upon a time in Hollywood is a writer director that is building a story in tandem with one. Another one thousand. Nine hundred seventeen is very stylish way of making a movie. The the creativity should be more diverse. And I think ten ten is exactly fits that like there's a lot of I mean I was sort of looking back on knives out and thinking like I love nights out. This is a really enjoyable movie. I love the mystery but there's a lot of stuff in that movie that I think he'd take for granted whereas direction for example the first time you we see a flashback. You need to convince the audience that this flashback is something that happened. As opposed to someone's vision of something that happens without explicitly lucidly saying that and the movie accomplishes that and it's one of those little things that you don't you look in nineteen seventeen. Oh well obviously this is. This is tremendous directing because look at everything that had to go to make this work. But there's all kinds of stuff that goes in directing that's like little things beyond that it's very true. I mean whenever I look look at a category like that and you know even when I pick my own choices for the critics choice awards. I always like to think first and foremost could anybody else have directed this movie. We'll be this way and when I think about that there are a couple of names on this list that I would probably give the boot. I wasn't the biggest fan of once upon the time in Hollywood overall I didn't love it as much as I've loved a lot of his other words. So maybe Tarantino would be off the list but the fact that the SAFDIE brothers are not on this. I mean uncut cut gems is the definition of what I just expressed a movie. That could not have been made the same way by anybody else. But I also believe Adam sandlers and on this list either. Yeah he's he's not on it. So maybe it's just like a thing where Uncut gems was not as well received as it is amongst us in the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Asian I think it's a shame that uncut gems didn't come out a little earlier because I I just saw it this weekend and I had been told over and over like this is a great movie. This is a great movie and every time I looked at it I kind of like I see where this is going and you and you're like oh no I didn't at all. Aw and I think the movie needed need. It needs to have that with with audiences because you can say. Oh you're you're not gonNa see where this is going. There's only so much you can actually convince someone. That's the say the same thing. Also maybe about the release stayed up something like a Richard Jewel or or a little women for that matter. Maybe maybe maybe release date is a factor here. You look like you have more to add Latifi right. Do they separate the directors between comedy and drama. No no it's one another thing here that When it comes to screenplay you know how we have adapted and original and the Oscars they have one onscreen play category? So that's why again. This isn't a good way to necessarily predict what's going to get an Oscar. Did win last year old goats and then won the Oscar. So it's shocking well. Oh I mean really when you're taught like especially when you're talking about best picture when here you have the field so spread out like that I mean you know you're bound to have some crossovers. It's like you if like the pool. Is this big and you have that many films to work with them. They select that many. Maybe you're you're bound to have crossover not only here but in all the guild nominations I I really. I don't look at this list and I don't then look at the winds. The reason why the winds matter for me actually is I do think that Golden Globe night winds ends of being part of the marketing campaign. Someone's Oscar campaign when they get up there and they deliver a powerful meaningful speech. I don't necessarily think somebody out there thinking well so now I'm going to vote for you because you had a good speech but it's more a matter of that person making sure that they're on voters minds. It doesn't necessarily affect how the voter feels about the quality quality of their work in their film. But it's all about keeping like your name in the movies name in everybody's conscience so when they're sitting there filling out their ballots. You're the first one they think of all right. Let's move onto the best musical or comedy category. Where we have dolemite is my name Joe Rabbit knives out? Once upon the time in Hollywood and rocket man I will say the one that excited me most on this list because it is fresh on. My mind is rocket man. We did that collider FIC screening at arclight. Hollywood the other night and I hadn't revisited it since May when it first came out I watched it I watched wants to prep for the Q.. And A. After after and then I watched it again. I sat through the movie and I don't know if I fully appreciated that the first time around. Maybe I just needed a fine. My footing as far as the fantasy elements go but the second time around. I'm looking at that. And you know that's another one that the directing it is kind of next level when you think about them pulling the reality elements in the fantasy elements together so well and the scene transitions in. That movie are so so well crafted so I was happy to see this. GotTa love I find this to be ironic. Because Dexter Fletcher stepped in took over for Singapore. RHAPSODY and now he gets to fully do stuff with rocket man. I loved it the first time I saw it loved it next two times I saw. It is an incredible film. That is getting absolutely no buzz overall for best picture or for best director Orienteer- negative best actor and I think it's miles better than Bohemian rhapsody in my opinion because and I think what makes me and rhapsody is extra Fletcher's contributions to the film. which is what he did fully with rocket man so I think people are Queen fans are getting a little muddled in their heads about what's good? What's and I think for me personally? Rock man is much more honest exploration and that takes advantage of the medium so well better than Bohemian Siemian wraps that he did which I think copped out on a number of occasions with Freddie Mercury story even though that last scene is incredible when they redo live aid. I think there's more more and rocket man free to hold on to discover and explore and use the film medium. So well how you feel about this category Silas. I'm not the biggest rocket man and fan. I I do think of any of the words that I would give it. A turn. Edgerton is is just like he's very very good and the fact that he's actually performing and convincingly performing like it is fantastic. I definitely like it more than human. RHAPSODY I also I love Eddie. The Eagle which was turned out of my favorite movies twenty fifty it was like under the radar. Like why is Hillary. Watch Eddie the EAGLE A A lot. I'm kind of excited now. Dexter Fletcher has like had some projects where people are like. Oh Wow this is a this is a name to watch. I really am excited about what he does now. Yeah and I want to give credit back because I was giving them crap earlier. I like to give credit to goes for nominee DOLEMITE is. My name is a fantastically fun film. Eddie won't smell or nomination. Wesley won't either. That's unfortunate but the film overall at least get recognized. This way is a positive. I think the the main things missing from this category at a glance comes to me is is definitely A while we're talking about little women and the other category. I wonder where where bombshell would bombshell bombshell would have been in the drama category. Actually actually and I'm I'm a little surprised to have that knocked out but are you surprised by cats. Not even being. I think this is this. This is the sign nine that even though there was some like little bit of hope left that cats could have been real Oscar contender. I'm pretty sure the fact that they didn't go for in the sign that it's not going to be the case. There is one predictor that I would I would buy into now. That's US out except for song which I think it is on the The Golden Globes for all right. Let's keep going down. These categories stories here so we can hit most of them Best performance by an actress in a motion picture drama. So we've got renee L. Wagga for Judy. Of course. Charlene Darren for bombshell sir. Sha Ronin for little women. Cynthia revolt for Harriet and Scarlett Johansson for marriage story. What say you about this category to lose in my opinion even though there's there's been a lot of buzz recently for her? I think it's just like this. Quiet acceptance is going to happen like with Frances mcdormand dormant. We knew be three billboards. No problem I feel this way about Zellwegger with Judy. I don't know of anybody can come in there but I'm happy that Cynthia got nominated for Harriet. That's that's I mean that's fantastic. You're really excited about that. I mean what are the other ones that that jumps out that keeping Lupita and Yang in us is such a creepy like a performance. That has I have come back to throughout the year. I think all around the people category great year probably really right about judy. The only thing I'm worried about is I feel like Judy. Is this year's Standing Ali. Oh I really love Standing Ali. Fortresses princes were so good in that and just Kinda got ignored will stand and Ali didn't have the same fanfare during its release and I think they positioned to the release of Judy and the debut. Buick Judy on the festival circuit. Very very well I think they basically kicked off their run with all the noise in the world and you know it might feel like it's just coasting on that right now but wait wait for it. I mean come the beginning of January. They're going to be making all that noise all over again and thinks she's in good shape to win but it does feel like it's that perfect like this is a very very very good dramatic performance but the characters also performing which is also really cool and there's a transformative element which is always like something for awards. Um So yeah I can see I can see playing it's like it's like Lincoln day-to-day Lewis is Great Lincoln. The film itself. Maybe not as good. But he's good. I feel really come on Lincoln. I thought it was kind of boring during the first time and now I am totally. I need to Rewatch Lincoln because I I was originally with you on that. It wasn't my favorite all right. Let's add in some of the best performances by an actress in a musical or comedy just to see the whole group together right now. The list includes Aquafina in the farewell. Beanie Feldstein from book smart onto armies from knives out Emma Thompson in late night and Caitlyn shut in Where'd you go Bernadette? There's always that random one isn't that like what was the. What was it like the tourist and like some weird stuff like they didn't the what's the Robert Downey? Junior won that one year. The what are they to judge the judge not to be really cynical about it but there is sort of the reputation at the Hollywood. Foreign press invites the actors. They WANNA hang out. So that's that's probably the most random one I see on the list and I would say so. AQUAFINA is in my prediction list for the Adamy Award. So I'm just excluding her from this comment for that reason but I'm very very very excited to see auditor arms beanie Feldstein Emma Thompson on this list because those are three names that I don't think are going to get nearly enough recognition Russian other than the Golden Globes which is a shame but it's also a sign that we have many many good performances this year. Yeah I mean those are all I think AH movies. I've seen more recently in trying to catch up but like some really strong. I mean it's sort of like look looking thing thing about judy. The the the physically becoming someone else's always something that like helps win awards and those are those are performances that like still playing a different from person there's still convincingly play another character but there's not the physical transformation side. Yeah I mean I I did not like late night I thought it was I. I was hoping to like it. I didn't I is good in the film. Certainly I think cops out the last forty five minutes of the movie but I would throw caitlyn diva in over Vini Feldstein in my personal opinion. I think she's a fantastic actor. I liked more of what she was doing. And Book Smart then Beanie but just by a hair so I find this interesting interesting how you choose between the two because they have interesting stories within the narrative of the film. I just like Caitlyn's a little bit more than beans. That's all so but you know it's it's good to see that film getting love because a lot of people hurt. That didn't make a lot more capable of picking between the two were. All I wanted was to see book smart get a Little Recognition Award circuit. I don't care who it went to but I would have been happy but really I mean that's another thing is living wild for best director that an exceptional it's an exceptional film period. But the fact that that's her first feature as director I still can't get over in. That movie is still firmly in my top. Five of the air term directors tender actors. Do you want to add something. Silence was totally agreeing about book smart. It's like it's really re watchable. It has amazing performances. It's it's a really type movie. It's it's exceptionally well-made. That's one sag rolls around and gets an ensemble nomination also like I have seen so many many movies from actors that decide they wanna be directors and I I I the exception I think is the gift I love the gift but but usually they're not very good and there's often a reason that actors will direct movie and then they don't become directors they say l.. That was fun. I'm going to do something else Lee while no. I WanNa see your next movie. Dexter Fletcher was an actor true. There's there's one opposite but it's like you know this here. It's making me think you know rituals and get nominated motherless. Brooklyn isn't getting nominated. I Dunno can go one way or the other. I'm upset about the Richard Jewel stuff. It's like it's IT'S I. I think I think things are happening. Didn't he got support for Kathy Bates. But the only the only thing about Richard and I liked Richard Jewel. I thought it was pretty pretty good. It's just in comparison to some of this other stuff. I understand why it's getting bumped out except for Paul Walter Houser. I think he is so good in that. That's the thing that I worry about because you know I just did the junket and Paul Walter. Houser was so nice and getting me Clinton was like his perform performances. Incredible I think this is the best thing. Clinton directed even past American sniper to the letters from Jim. I think this is the most heartfelt films directed in quite some time and yet people and I think it's a little bit political liberals are looking at this going. Oh this seems like a right wing movie. I don't think I want to go see it and I think it's getting lost the shuffle because of that and I think that's unfair because the damn good movies it's frustrating see but this is the best films frustrates forbid kind of frustration though because this is the time of year when we get to celebrate all the things or super super passionate about and if there's not enough space in these awards ceremonies to accommodate everything it means. We got a good chunk of films this year. Very that all right. Let's do the two best performance by an actor in a motion picture. Category starting with drama. I one on that list is Christian. Bale for Ford. V Ferrari Joaquin Phoenix for Joker Antonio Banderas for painting glory. Then we have Jonathan Pryce for the two popes and Adam driver in a marriage story enrolling right into the comedy section here we in order to Capri for once upon a time in Hollywood Eddie Murphy for Dolemite is my name Daniel Craig for knives out Taryn Edgerton for rocket men and Roman Griffin Davis for Joe Joe Ravitz I mean you could hear inflection right there which one makes me most excited. I'm just I it's one of those situations where I don't think he's going to be in the best actor category and I think he is such a strong anchor for that movie so Roman Griffin Davis getting the getting. The attention he deserves is wonderful but certain ceremonies do have awards for young up and coming actors and I think he is is going to dominate a lot of those. Yeah what do you what do you think about this pool of ten names here. I think that's a pretty incredible. I mean that that actually of everything we've talked about is one one of the most evenly matched. I am not the biggest joker fan but if Joaquin Phoenix won for best performance. I can't argue with that. He's very very good. Would I would agree with that. He is very very good. I think that award is either going to. I think it's probably going to be him at this point or Eddie Murphy. Also like I just feel like Eddie's possible for a for a golden no for a Golden Globe I also I like I. I guess you guys don't like as much once upon on a time in Hollywood is probably my favorite movie of the year. I think is fantastic in it. I probably would not select him from this category. Yeah just because there is sort of an attitude sometimes in my mind like we know. You're a really good actor like you don't need this like oh not that. We don't know somebody like Eddie Murphy is but it would be nice to bring Eddie Murphy back into the spotlight where he hasn't been for awhile. He's still pretty locked in my Oscar predictions the one obvious omission. Here is a Robert Deniro. Narrow the Irishman. Well what happened because it's not like the overlooked the Irishman general and just didn't include Robert Deniro especially especially and Pacino got nominee. That's insane to me also. Yeah I mean I don't know what it was. I mean carried the movie for the although moves about if anything would think what would happen in this scenario like that is that passion Pacino could run the risk of cancelling each other out of someone decides to only vote for one or two like why was to near from the situation the other Leviathan. Honey boy should've been nominated and also and once again Paul Trouser here. We go again. You Kick Jonathan Pryce right on out of there I absolutely slide house probably would have been supporting for honey boy. That's where he would have he would have popped up but I still think that would've been a junior. Don't don't get me started on. Calvin Kevin Harrison congestive should be in this thing like come on. I have had his name all over like every list. I've had to come up with and whether it's for waves or for loose really. We should be all over all of the awards conversation so this year and I don't know I feel like that's getting overlooked. Maybe because it debuted at Sundance mainly because that hit theaters in the middle of the year. But the other one that really upsets me that goes in the NEON Earlier release category is wild rose whereas wild rose. How is that not all over for the place especially for saw? I think it's not for song here too and that is so yeah. It's it's not in here that that I think if that winds up happening at the Oscars would be one one of the most upsetting snubs to me and sadly. I think that song could be like I don't know this St Wor sing-sing Twenty sixteen to be such a bummer. I'm happy their bail. Got Nominated though. I think he's incredible enforces Ferrari and that's the conversation to me. Those are the two guys from me that are the back and forth is walking Phoenix and Christian Eh. Deniro not getting nominated I get it but like those are the two guys that I wanted to see what happens all the way to the end because I think that's that's so much I do have one question for you guys. We do have to move on because we have to really cool trailers to talk about but the other category I wanted to bring up was the animated category I don't think we have a graphic for this this one but there's one interesting little thing here because that list includes frozen to how to train your dragon. The hidden world missing link toy story four and the Lion King King. So wh what. Where do we land with this? What is the official definition of Lion? King is it an animated movie or is it not. I guess it depends on the organization. They think it's an animated movie. Not Whether Disney animated movie or not but certainly the organization has to make that decision so clearly they think it is. I don't think it is in any way shape or form. The other unusual thing in terms of like an Organi organization to finding a movie in the farewell is considered a foreign film. Roy Air. It's not elsewhere so so I don't know but I found it a little surprising when I was scrolling through that list because right now in in terms of late goal derby predictions. I'm thinking the Lion King could be up for best visual effects that can't really equal animated. So what's going on here where we stand silas. I am personally of the opinion that like take the end result of what you wanted to be is how it should be defined so in that sense because lion king is trying to look like a live action movie. It's a live action. Yup Yep and great points I I I can see the argument for either side. I tend to roll my eyes. Sometimes when people say I love the live Action Lion King and somebody like well technically. It's an an animated film and there's a weird argument where like you're taking the attention away from animators who worked really hard and it's always one of those like really because like like animators also worked on this other movie it's not like we're we're naming them it it. It just feels like something people like to complain about that being said I really think it should be in the animated film category. Just because that's that's something like animation doesn't have a lot of that there's not a ton of space for animated films to be celebrated in the bigger award season so if you start taking the next avatar be an animated film right point. Well the part of the reason. I'm upset that it's in this category is because I was Kinda rooting for abominable little love and Oh the name is escaping. Aping me of a of a lesser known lesser known I believe it's on net flicks. The one with like the hand and the body. Oh my God I can't. It's not yes I haven't seen I haven't I haven't seen it yet. Either but someone flagged it for me for a long time ago and I haven't gotten around to watching it but I know that that one was considered a little bit of a snub here still talking. What about Claus Claus was in credible? I don't think a lot of people watch did not a lot of people that I've been speaking to do. They throw it up in there because watched over the weekend. The Nation is phenomenal. Something I've never seen before and it's incredible stores sweet story great voice over work and no one is talking talking about it. And it's a Netflix film. So I'm shocked. Why was why was every animated movie this year about ice like frozen to house? Abominable Missing Link Arctic. Dogs dogs are dogs. I forgot that even existed all right as much as we want to get to all the categories here we do not not have time but don't worry collider. FCC has you covered on Wednesday so tune in check that out and also something you could watch later today on collider video. It's rula to. Here's here's Promo.

I know I already have my eye so my family does a a secret. Santa every every year and I think I got someone this year who I think would really appreciate a heroes and villains I don't know how big I'M GONNA go. I'M GONNA go t shirt or jacket for him but I feel like it could be a good. I hope no one in my family is watching not supposed to give away who we have and now I just cut the field and has given away the gender matters. There's only there's only like A seven of us. I hope you enjoy your clang on shirts. I was GonNa comment on that but then I stopped because then it would've narrowed it down now. I just gave it away away even more all right. We're going to get to these two trailers now to really big trailers drop recently. We got full trailer for wonder woman. One thousand nine thousand four and also the new ghostbusters movies which have called ghostbusters afterlife. All right we've allowed to get into on these two but if you had to pick your favorite of the two which one would it be wonder woman woman as well but just just by a hair. I really liked both of them up. I ah I like ghostbusters. But I'm also not someone like that. Just wasn't my franchise growing up compared to other ones. There's something about just the I don't know like the texture and the feel of it and how quickly I got sucked into that trailer and into that family. That was really impressing me and also just how certain familiar elements from the original films. Just slowly slowly kind of added up until you get to that ending where I don't know I found myself kind of like freaking out by seeing certain elements. Come back as I started a piece piece. Everything thing together as far as how these new characters could be connected to the original ones. I love the fact that one is set in the eighties and one comes from eighties. Property which I think is really funny and This style just suffer the decade. I grew up in his great. I thought one of them is phenomenal. Just fantastic Patty Jenkins really just understanding what to bring bring to a sequel. How different in new to be the writing? Lightning secrets alone was incredible. I love the Maxwell Lord playing like the eighties. Infomercial guy that you grew up watching late at night right. Have you stayed up late watching those crazy things with the vibe of it pulling up the all of that the fashion that they nail but I grew Perry ghostbusters. Thing was a complete shock to me that I enjoyed that trailer. 'cause I was worried it's going to be debacle. I was worth going to feel like no offence to the Palsy. When I didn't like it I thought I was gonNA feel like that but I liked it at set someplace else and this is how you recharge the franchise brings young good young actors? Put it in a place that sounds familiar and then connected only in certain spots to the overall story and you cast someone like Paul Rudd that fits the vibe of the original to carry these kids into Those brilliant I don't think there's a better Lead for some there though then. Carrie coon Paul Rudd Fin Wolf Part McKenna. Grace it's like that list right then and there has me sold but the fact that it's like it taps into that childlike l.. Like wonder of discovery. And you're rediscovering elements from the original films. It's like that that kind of thing is infectious and it works really well for me in the trailer. I don't know if it did work for me. Ah I think the reason is because it's coming so soon after that. Et Commercial Commercial. Great I don't think so. Yeah he went off on like I. I think that this goes posters movies doing so many things right and it's probably probably going to be really really good but there is a point where like it's weird to just like be sold your nostalgia back to you and there's something particularly weird and ghostbusters. Busters were like. Oh the kids in the movie. Don't even have this nostalgia so like the as an audience. We have to have like kids who are learning how important our or nostalgia is i. Don't love that there's room for both though there's room for kids to discover their own things that are going to become their nostalgia but also to be able to appreciate hourly you could look looking at one way or the other there is something you know frustratingly commercial about it where you're being like. It's almost like you're being re fed like regurgitated stuff. I just just have cat vomit on my mind threw up in my router today and it was very upsetting But you can either look at it that way like you're being given back like rinse washed repeated stuff or it's idea. And this is part of the reason why I do really hold tight to things like adaptations and continuations of franchises is some some young moviegoer out. There who might not have had any reason to go back and check out the original ghostbusters. Movie could see a film with people they admire like Fin wolfert McKenna. A grace. See this movie and be like where'd all this come from it and then go back and check out something that they might not have seen before. Or let's say little women. For example. I have actively cavorted all forms of that story my entire life because I thought that story was not for me saw Greta Gerwig movie and now I have downloaded the little women audiobook and years years later when I had no reason otherwise to I'm finally GonNa read it and I think that's the good that comes out of it. I hear what you're saying and I take your point but it's it's not like this film was is a you know like a best picture emotional. It's ghostbusters an and they made a sequel. Because they wanted to keep a franchise going so it's in its bones to want you get to as many people as possible so for it to go this route I like it. I think it's the way they do. Also I ever saw some people pushing back going. There's no New York City. It's Not New York City. Why would you want to set a New York City again? We've done that three times already. There's no need Senate out here in the Wilderness. Because that's what you're trying to do is to bring people out from this area area back into this main of love of the franchise so it makes all the sense of the world to me personally that they're doing it this way because they don't have to be tied to all that stuff with New York City and can create their own narrative. Here all right. Let's go to one of the weird things with ghostbusters I think is so like. There's something sad about seeing like oh we'll hair. Dye is is is very old and unlike something like say say if this was star Trek And and it's it's about the federation the Federation's about exploring about pursuing knowledge. The legacy of the GHOSTBUSTERS is stopping cartoon. Ghosts and I love that ghostbusters. But there's something hard to be like after thirty years that legacy is going to have new people. If there's not a ghost problem it just seems like a fake aac thing to be sad about some ways interesting. No it's a it's a different take on it. I'm curious to see where they go on a second trailer and how much more they show because I do appreciate the mystery and wanting to know more and it's this is a trailer that almost makes me wish they will stop here but I know that's not going to be the case so I just hope their craft in terms of what they reveal in the next one but with wonder woman. I feel like what was exciting me the most about that this was the trailer that debuted at CC CC XP there's was it that's the right order but The Brazil comecon where Stephen Halio right now and all I could picture was that trailer debuting in in front of like a booming crowd that this is the kind of trailer that I think you're GonNa see before the big December releases and it's just GonNa below the theater away. There's something about the way it's cut the music that dialogue the action everything that says to me. This is perfect for big screen trailer. Viewing that's going to get even more people to buy tickets tickets to the movie. I thought it was fantastic. I thought just like the look of it was amazing The time it's been some time since wonder woman came out and it feels like oh it we've been waiting for this. I have a big question for you silence because I feel like you're the best person to go to for something like this. How how do you think Chris Pines character comes back because there's some potential like I dunno like science things mystery of the movie but it sounds like what Pedro Pascal maximum Lord is doing is giving people the thing they want the mask with some terrible price so for wonder woman? That's getting him back. So you think it's GonNa be a fish out of water scenario where like decades later. He's kind of feeling out a new world and that's why the why the art scene happens. I suspect we're not. I suspect we're not going to even know now until some point much later in the movie why he's back. That part of the mystery is wonder woman also got what she really wanted. But what's the price of that will the reverse of it right I. I the fact that he's out of water when she was out of water in the first films a nice change But I think it has to do with Cheetah. I think she knows she finds out about him. mm-hmm uses whatever that thing Max Laura's holding to bring Steve Back to mess with wonder woman and then someone put I forget who tweeted said I. I think they'RE GONNA kill Steve Trevor Off after every movie like Kenny in South Park for wonder woman to laughing on the general slack of other. Jeanne whoever put it up there on because Larry on the order of events you just said though seems very It seems like it's possible to me but usually when something seems so obvious like that it's wrong so maybe it's not going to have said that you didn't see Cheetah. No I liked what I saw of Kristen Wiig. I thought I mean even though it's like even though it's like an eighty bitty moment almond one conversation that the two of them were having together. I thought even just a few lines was very powerful. And I'm like into the character poster of her. I think that they are going to slowly reveal that that character and she might be a good fit for the role I can also see them wanting to see what the reaction of cats is. Silence it. Why does it always always comes back to cats brilliant? I did love so at the very end of the bag. The Art Museum of like like well are different for different people. And that's like a beautiful sentiment for a comic Book Mhm Pop Art. But that doesn't mean it's not art I kind of wondered if the no that's the trash can was a Justice League joke. This is something people have been saying on twitter tonight. Even think about it all that would be terribly. Why stippled Snyder even more Y.? Yeah I mean that's not. Even his his cut still think as as soon as soon as the snyder kind of some form gets released. I think it'll be okay even among hardcore. DC You take it all it's like I don't care how anybody feels about a Justice League. There's someone out there that loves. There's many people out there who do love it. I don't know I just feel like any joke at the expense of another movie in that kind of sense not cool ultimately when Snyder cast her in the damn role in BBS of if she agrees that it's just an extra line to reading eating into that that's not happening. I do have like two wild theories right now. One is either that Maxwell Lord is really sursee because Oh good person that transforms forms people into animals and at some point Cheetah becomes a animal person. Coal the other that I kind of like is like I feel like injustice league. We have time travel. That probably never going to be continued. Bring that back to wonder woman like make. The eighties are jumping off. Point for like have the Justice Society be founded rounded up. But the thing I realized is like if actual Lord is actually involved in global surveillance what if he's trying to find. Superman has recently in nineteen native four landed and is somewhere on earth. I'll take anything that paves the way to more superman the DC film franchise right now. Because I still one man of steel to rile Riley is firmly. Gotten me on that boat and I want it to happen and sadly I want it to happen with Henry cavill which I don't know feels like every passing thing day. The chances are diminishing. That's a thing that's an official collider position. What Steel Gee? I didn't realize how passionate I was about it until I heard it around me so much and I'm like no I really did you care. I want more and the way. He's handled himself through. This whole thing has been nothing but class. The whole time didn't get cut HASHTAG. Did his own thing. Also one last thing. I wonder if Thomas Emma Swain shows up in some form or Martha Wayne shows up in some form in this kind of allude to a Batman. Remember that Batmans GonNa be in the nineties. Possibly that could be something that would be playing around the eighties as well especially Maxwell being a businessman. Why wouldn't he know about Wayne? So all right guys we we have to say goodbye but we just left with a whole bunch of theories about if you agree agree with him or disagree with them hit the comment section below. Share your thoughts and your theories there.

We dot com slash greatness. That's any T S U E. Dot com slash greatness. Why do you think you were pursuing the over achievement teams? Well, it was one way to be loved if I was moderate or if I was even quote, unquote, less than average I would be even more invisible than I was, you know, so for me it was about being seen, and I could tell there were certain things that were on people's radars. Oh, my talents. Oh, my brain, my points, or whatever the top ten things film blank where the things that got the attention that I was starving for. Why are you starving for your parents not giving seeing you in some avian like brother and sister? I was the youngest of four. Okay. I never felt seen or door. Getting the love that. I wanted. My parents were just working the job. Care. It's like they were crazy four kids running around the house. There's nothing to blame. We're not even taking into consideration. All all the other internal stuff that's going on for them. And they were fighting constantly and not happy because they got married Mary teen and they were pregnant and whatever they're up they were living their dreams. So the resentments of consciousness level was different than they weren't. You know, it wasn't a thing to do that to make sure that stages of development are the boxes are checked mean that wasn't even a conversation. It's almost barely one. Now, you know started. Yes, it's starting. So you felt like they were never fully seeing you for just loving knowledge in you as the child you're well, they were doing the best they could. And I definitely felt loved. There were just so many aspects of my humanity that were just missed in the crossfire. You know, that's what I felt loved like my dad always talked me and told me love me. Me. It's the specificity of the Mirroring. So the state of the development crassly quickly is the touch and the holding. I grew up in you know, his born in the seventies. So wasn't you know, this is the time. Feminism also context is huge consideration around this. So my mom went back to work right away. My twin brother, and I were born I asked, you know, I was basically wondering about the touch I contact thing. They're certain key things that happen during that stage where I deal we want the skin on skin, I contacting we're breastfeeding if mom could do it or not, you know, just being able to have that stage development considered then the exploration stage, and my bonded and attached enough to move out into the world or is there. No one there and moving out into the world of scary or as moving out into the world, the only option I have then the third one is identity, the Mirroring and not just Mirroring two or three things they call that concave Mirroring, where if they just go I'm gonna mirror that you're a great athlete, and that you're handsome, and that you're that you like cars what about the six Bill. Other aspects of you. All right. So the Mirroring that can be inaccurate or straight up marrying. That's not accurate like walking in the house, and you go I'm freezing. And your parent goes. No, you're not sit down for dinner. Yeah. You're like you're is crossing. But I do feel cold. But maybe I don't and maybe I'm wrong. Maybe my impulses are wrong. If my impulses wrong, I'm wrong. I trust myself trust anyway. Yes. And then the fourth one is competence. Can I do it? So then some parents on the continuum do the, hyper not only can you do it. You're going to be the next president. You're going to be number one. You're gonna win every award and you're just like fresher because the best thing is its own for me. Anyway, it's its own violence. Right. Then the other end of the continuum, which is your good for nothing. You can't you'll never do this smirking when you have a dream all that stuff. So that's the very crass version of the first four, so I just think of how complicated it is to even sometimes understand it. Little onto have parents apply at let alone to have them apply when they're freaked out there. Winded. And they're in a context where they don't have enough energy when to apply. Do you know what they actually need once the art of parenting and doing well enough and not not thinking that as a parent you have to be perfect. So there's all that. Guys.

"From the MON Broadcast Center. KPCC this is the frame. I'm Steven Cuevas filling in for John Horn on today's show the Golden Golden Globe. Nominations are outs but what we really to make them. Then the curator of an exhibit about the year nineteen nineteen make. One hundred years seemed not so far away away rather than kind of hammering away on the One thousand nine hundred twenty nine thousand nine parallels what we hoped is that people moving through would make those connections themselves salves and in opera about struggling artists is revived in the middle of gentrification hotspot all that coming up on the frame and welcome to the frame. I'm Steven Cuevas filling in for John Horn. But we're about to hear from John On. He's covered the movie industry for more than two decades as a print reporter and so we figured he's the best person to explain the significance or lack thereof of the Golden Globe awards. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association today announced the nominees for its annual awards which take place in early January but rather than detail the usual inexplicable explicable nominee choices and snubs. We thought we talk about the relationship between movie fans the Globes and the entertainment industry. I John tells us who makes up the association. What's important to me about the Golden Globes and about some other kind of minor film? Awards is that this is not a representative presentative body. They're about ninety journalists. And if you go on the website for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association you can no longer even find their names teams or where they work. It's a very small group of people and they have undue influence because the movie studios have figured out that if they wou- the voters for the Golden Globes and they're filmmakers win awards at the Golden Globes it kind of create some sort of momentum for the Academy Awards but none none of it is very legitimate and H. MPA has cleaned itself up. It's not a scandal ridden as it has been in years past but this isn't an elite group of film writers or film critics that are making these selections and if you look closely at the selections not just this year but but in past years the fact that they are really that serious ask kind of film. Lovers starts to reveal itself pretty quickly. How so? Well let's talk about a couple of past nominations twenty thirteen. There were three nominations for a movie. I bet you you've never heard of salmon. Fishing in the Yemen amend that was a Golden Globe Walker. If you go back nine years to twenty ten there was a movie with Johnny. Depp called the tourists that was largely largely derided that ended up getting multiple nominations at the Golden Globes. And I think if you look closely at some of the selections this year it's clear it's it's driven by the red carpet like who do they wanna have on the red carpet you look in the TV category. There are multiple nominations for the morning. Show a apple all series. That didn't get great reviews because Jennifer Aniston is coming reese witherspoon is coming as nominees and then you look at Ava d'auvergne as when they see us. One of the most critically acclaimed TV series of the past year didn't get any nominations so it's important for the NBC. Show to have that star Klaus so there's eyeball so so people watch. I think that's part of the bias historically for the Golden Globes that you can say it judging between good filmmaker and a less name they generally are going to vote for the last name and they also have some historical by sees you know that are shared by the Academy in the seventy seven year history of the Globes. Only five women have ever been nominated for best director and this year. There are lots of really good female filmmakers that were up Greta Gerwig for little women. Olivia Wilde for book. SMART Hurrell for honey. Boy Marielle Heller for Beautiful Day in the neighborhood. Not One of them got nominated so golden gloves has a pretty poor history when it comes to nominate women the Golden Globes has made some the effort to try to rehabilitate this reputation. What has it done? It's made sure that people who are members actually have legitimate emmett credits. As journalists there been some reports of. I guess you could call it. Bribery or expensive gifts in the past. I think they've tried I to eliminate all of that so again they have cleaned up their act. But there's only so much legitimacy you can bring to yourself when you're only ninety journalists writing for publications that if we had the names I guarantee you you've probably never heard of them and yet the industry I I guess mostly plays along and an actor or director or studio can use success at the Globes as part of their campaign going into Bosco Bosko season one hundred percent and I think that is one of the most interesting parts of the story. Everybody in Hollywood knows in their soul that at the Golden Globes are really not totally legitimate and yet the studios independent companies and marketing departments. Embrace raise them because they recognize. There's a game to be played and the game is. We're going to court the Golden Globe voters we're going to have screenings and QNA's for them and and if we get a nomination are actor or filmmaker is going to be on their awards show and people are going to start talking about the film and one thing gets the other but they do know that really. It's not totally legit but it serves their purposes academy award. Campaigning is a multi title million dollar business. There are people who work as campaign consultant who get hundreds of thousands of dollars for getting nominations or Oscar wins wins. There is a huge business behind all of this and in some ways it might drive ticket sales or people to stream movies so it's driven by finance finance is driven by trying to get eyeballs on the movies but it's all kind of a hustle so John I've never covered the entertainment industry that closely so so like a lot of people in the public eye really always just saw the Golden Globe awards as the first among that more high profile award shows to spotlight the top films of the year. Going into Oscar seasons am I am I off on that. Were not technically off. I mean because the Hollywood Foreign Press Association Asian nominates into different categories for most of the major film awards they cast a wider net. So just mathematically. They're bound to include lewd a lot of movies. That end up getting nominated. I wouldn't say they're that much of a bellwether but because they're embracing so many movies. They have a a mathematical chance of getting most of those things right. John Horn out in New York. John Thanks for joining us to talk about the Golden Globes. We'll see when you get back. Thanks for sitting. In and before airtime we reached out to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association to request a list of voting members and the news outlets they represent resent declined our request coming up on the frame look back at a turbulent year two thousand nineteen but nineteen nineteen. If you've ever been to the Huntington in San Marino not far from our studios in Pasadena You know it's easy to spend entire day. Just strolling through the neatly manicured botanical gardens. But next time you're there don't skip the library and the art museum in celebration. Liberation of the Huntington's founding one hundred years ago by Henry and Arabella Huntington the exhibition. One thousand nine hundred nineteen paints. A picture of that. First Mulch was year. The exhibit is comprised entirely of items from the Huntington's collection there were either acquired published or displayed in nineteen nineteen from. Benjamin Franklin's handwritten written autobiography to suffer just pamphlets celebrating the passage of the nineteenth amendment. John Horn recently paid a visit to talk with James Glistening Jennifer Watts Co curator raiders of Nineteen Nineteen. They explained what Henry Huntington was focused on collecting one hundred years ago by the time. Nine hundred nineteen rolls around Huntington had purchased on the Order of one hundred twenty twenty thousand items says a huge collection. It was on the East Coast still and he's still aggressively buying so he puts in bids at something like fifty auctions that year. Here he The week before the trust document is actually signed one of his favourite dealers springs. One hundred and twenty-one thousand dollars worth of Shakespearean works is to the House here in San Marino so he is still all in and actually just ramps it up in the twenties so he's still buying the great works of British and American history. Austrian literature really focused on the great men of history so he is also trying to do something in San Marino. California that I think is important in terms of what we're seeing now and that is to establish this area as a rival to the east coast and maybe Europe and does that start to affect the kinds of things. He's buying well. He's very much focused on early. American history and literature and early British History Richard. So he's working really hard to collect all the first editions of Shakespeare. He's actually competing with the British library. And he's also competing with some of the major east coast institutions. But he's got the leg up because he's buying entire libraries at a time so all the early papers of Virginia you know come here and whatnot. But it's really not until a few years later that he really we start thinking about California as an emphasis for collecting and California as we call it and his librarians. Really start going in whole hog on that I mean Huntington is creating history as he's he's settling here by bringing this institution here but also by just the very fact that. He's brought the A Streetcar System. He's real estate is his main occupation. And he's laying out suburbs so he's history in the making with Huntington here like anybody anybody who is collecting art at the time. Henry Huntington has a European white male focus and that is reflected in a a lot of what you see in the art gallery walls when you're thinking about how you can represent a broader spectrum of the country at that time at nine hundred nineteen. Are there things in the collection that can illustrate beyond what Huntington himself might have been drawn to because his collection is focused was pretty narrow as where a lot of people at that time so keep in mind that while this exhibition is about the year. Nineteen nineteen it includes items brought to the Huntington all the way up to twenty nineteen so some moments in the show where we tell other stories are are the US marshals papers for instance that. I'm a right here. They're the kind of parole records so to speak for German citizens who were are required to report to the Marshal's office once a week and kind of check in other. German citizens were jailed under pretty flimsy charges. We we have An amazing book by Delilah Beasley. It's the history of African Americans in California published in Nineteen nineteen. We have wobbly early. Industrial Workers of the World Literature. We also have a lot of material believe it or not about the German revolution. So one thing who was a discovery of Jenny's in fact the Huntington has an extraordinary collection of German posters from roughly nineteen seventeen about nineteen twenty nineteen twenty one. We've got ten in two thousand of them we've got four on the wall and One of them reads Warning translating stopping is prohibited. Rioters will be shot. This is an image from the German revolution of January. Nineteen nineteen which was a short-lived Communist revolution. And I think that's definitely definitely a story along with the wobbly material along with this. US marshals material that one might not expect to encounter at the Huntington. So much of what you're talking talking about suggests what's going to happen. In the years and decades to follow the registration of german-american suggests the internment that's going to happen during World World War Two there are artifacts about the wobbly about the fight to unionize and penalties that some union organizers faced which was death and lynching and and then there are things like the German revolution when you start thinking about what this snapshot of Nine Hundred Thousand Nine thousand nine hundred represents how much of the future history of the country in the world. Do you think is really told if you start looking closely at what. We're seeing her an extraordinary amount. So really it's the mishandling handling or the stumbles beside peace conference that set the stage for the second world warm. It's the social chaos in Germany in nineteen nineteen eighteen and the near breakdown of civil order. Right as the Weimar Constitution's being written that sets the stage for the rise of the Nazis in the nineteen thirties isolationism in American. Foreign Policy for the Twenties and thirties becomes set at this moment. But it's not as like try to say it's not all bad so women got the right to vote. Huntington's Streetcar System is kind of its edited apogee in Nineteen Nineteen And that's the the sort of backbone own around which the metropolis of La would continue to grow for another forty or fifty years before they ripped it up and put in the freeway in what we hoped in setting up the exhibition Bishen is that people moving through would make those connections themselves rather than kind of hammering away on the nine hundred nineteen twenty nineteen parallels arallels. Let people make those connections themselves and certainly you. You did it. I will look at the map so we go walk. It's maps there are some amazing maps around us right now. What is this epic map? That goes almost across. I'm tired gallery. This is an epic map. This is a thirty nine foot long linen MAP Roland map which is completely unrolled. That's the first time we've ever unrolled it. which is depicting the end delineating the Pasadena short line red car system from Old Town Pasadena? All the way to the outskirts curse of downtown Los Angeles drawn over decades short line opened in one thousand nine hundred two and was going for many many decades needs so everything that's shown on this map reveals not only the route of the Pacific Electric Red Car all contiguous real estate holdings the the titles to land the deeds changes in placenames the additions of towns. But it really shows the extent to which transportation tation and real estate are intertwined in the city of Los Angeles Really Huntington put in his transportation network to get people to his real estate holdings it was the loss leader for him and so he was really trying to move people out to the hinterlands where he had built these suburbs and remember. These suburbs also had racially restrictive covenants. It's on them as did many of these neighborhoods that the streetcars going through. So it's just an amazing time to really reflect on the demographics and the topography Agassi of the city. And how it got to be the way it is how does sound and music play in this show. I saw aww put together a spotify playlist what elements of music represented either visually or. Do you want people walk around the gallery. Listening to their spotify. I play list about the Huntington show. Well right here on the wall we have some sheet music covers and I think just reading the titles. Give you a sense sense so there's salvation lassie of mine. She's in an army uniform. And you can see in the distance a bunch of soldiers heading into to what looks like a canteen. There's another called. I'm forever blowing bubbles in. Its this woman looking in the distance surrounded by a whole bunch of bubbles doubles. Let the rest of the world go by like on Maybe you'd be surprised by Irving Berlin and then my favorite how you gonNA keep down on the farm after they seem Perry how you go down on the fall after the wage adding On what all of these started to say is is that this was a really a moment of nostalgia so for all all of the world changing events for the horrors of the war for the tragedies of the red summer and the violence against African Americans that year in popular culture pop culture. That's what the says isn't reflecting that instead it's giving us a nostalgic light view and we felt like this room were standing in as cold return and the return section is not just about soldiers coming home but about this desire to kind of turn. The clock back which we all know is impossible. James and Jenny thanks so much for having said yes. Thanks a lot John. That was John Horn with Jennifer Watson. James GLISTEN CO curator one thousand nine hundred nineteen at the Huntington Ziam. The exhibit is open through January twentieth breath. Coming up on the frame L. A. Opera Company takes on the issue of gentrification reimagining of one of the greatest Italian operas of the nineteenth century. Aw Welcome back to the frame. I'm Steven Cuevas. Sitting in for John Horn in neighborhoods across l.. A. Battle Lines have been drawn over. gentrification Haitian artists and other creative type seek less expensive neighborhoods landlords and developers want more commerce longtime residents and community activists argue for affordable double housing and preserving tradition. They are fights that define the oldest of cities which brings us to Giacomo Puccini one of the Italian composers greatest operas La Boheme Cam famously revolves around a group of Parisian artists and writers struggling to creates and to pay the rent it was first performed in Los Angeles more than one hundred twenty two years ago now the Pacific Opera Project is staging the opera in La neighborhood at the center of a gentrification battle. Marco Snyder has our story. Oh these days. The sound of Sopranos Fills Highland Park's e book club on Avenue fifty-seven but once upon a time this was an elite club for women to study. It was even a safe house for the suffragettes. According to some news accounts more recently the Pacific Opera Project or pop for short his. Call this place home. The furthest seat from the stage is not even fifty feet. We get forty two tables and somehow that is pups artistic director. Josh Shaw. He's he's talking about how he and his Opera Company have turned this unexpected space into rough but totally delightful concert hall. Uh there's nowhere else in the world sometimes. I think he can be hearing people. This talented this excited about seeing that close in this fund the Pacific Opera Project is reviving one of its holiday classics of sorts. It's called the hipsters. Shaw admits that this staging of Puccini's classic tale pitting artists against the elites carry some irony with it after all highland park is quickly becoming more hipster that Hispanic much to the Chagrin neighborhood activist groups who don't welcome those too cool for school bars where the new restaurants fit for foodies. Just a few blocks away. Residents of an apartment building have been conducting months-long rent strike against their landlord to protest a rent hike for a building. They say badly needs repairs on the flip side. I'd show says the whole point of staging. His company's productions here is not to be exclusive not to be expensive or snobby quite the opposite in fact ah affordable and most of all entertaining. That's the three key words pop and there's no reason that opera shouldn't be it's entertainment it's art but it's also entertainment which takes place on the streets of eighteen thirties. Paris it's Christmas Eve and the poet Rodolfo and his friends try to stay warm while scrounging red money. It's not long before he falls in love with the pretty girl next door. Me Impulse production. It's twenty nineteen we're in highland park and the Bohemians have been replaced by hipsters in real life couple days sweaters and Carryanne Daniel play Rudolfo and Mimi Characters are just effortlessly real. It's like this community of singers and artists and creative people. So that's the thing thing that I think people still relate to which is really doubt and I can't lie. I mean you know like I think probably my way into Lebanon was definitely brands Now if you're like me you owe lots of thanks for any knowledge of this classic opera to the hit Broadway. Show rent the same to me. Feel better I never went when Dane and I drove across country to move to California. We shredded our voices belting. All of rents like we played while we were the words other words used in sweat is we are Mimi. And Roger Obviously and so it's this telling of I mean. There's so many like lines in that John. Larson took literally directly translated from the Libretto of level. Which is amazing candle? They're meeting they're meeting in the in the apartment but also the walls which is such a huge part of rent when and was that comes interesting. Vote that means. I walked down the street. Everybody men and women look at me for everything so she sang for quantock year. LARGEN THASSOS TIME UTAH. uh-huh which means every single day maybe so sweet ever since the girls. I can't help it baby. And that's that's kind of cool because then people like me who are rent heads to you can. That's a door in right totally is and it makes you feel because I think that's the thing that's important about. Accessibility with opera is opera was written for us. It was written for for people like us for regular people especially the stories that Puccini wrote because he didn't write about kings and queens and gods and goddesses. He wrote about real people with real problems he wrote about artists he wrote about for all of his works. US It's no which in Italian means true to the frame I'm Marcos neck. Under La Boheme Aka the hipsters will be performed December Eleventh Thirteenth Fourteenth at the Highland Park Bell Club that story originally aired when the show premiered last winter so the casting may have changed. And that's all for today. Remember to keep up with us on twitter and facebook. We are at the frame. I'm Steven Cuevas. Thanks for listening back here tomorrow.

Bale and Matt Damon now nominated for a golden in Globe for best actor Christian Bale and five critic's choice nominations including best picture of the year. Welcome to the frame. I'm Steven Cuevas filling in for John Horn. But we're about to hear from John. He's covered the movie industry for more than two decades is a print reporter and so we figured he's the best person to explain the significance vacant or lack thereof of the Golden Globe awards. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association today announced the nominees for its annual awards which take place in early January. Sorry but rather than detail. The usual inexplicable nominee choices and snubs. We thought we talk about the relationship between movie fans the Globes and the entertainment. I'm an industry first. John tells us who makes up. The Association was important to me about the Golden Globes and about some other kind of minor film. Awards is that this is not a representative body. They're about ninety journalists. And if you go on the website for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association you can no longer even find their names or where they work is a very small group of people and they have undue influence because the movie studios have figured doubt that if they do the voters for the Golden Globes and they're filmmakers win awards at the Golden Globes it kind of creates some sort of momentum for the Academy Awards but none of it is very legitimate and at the age of. PA has cleaned itself up. It's not a scandal ridden as it has been in years past but this isn't an elite group of film writers or film critics that are making the selections and if you look closely closely at the selections not just this year but in past years the fact that they are really that serious as kind of film lovers starts reveal itself pretty quickly how so. Well let's talk about a couple of pass nominations twenty-third teen there. Were three nominations for a movie. I bet you you've never. I heard of salmon fishing in the Yemen That was a Golden Globe Walker. If you go back nine years to twenty ten there was a movie with Johnny Johnny. Depp called the tourists that was largely derided that ended up getting multiple nominations of the Golden Globes. And I think if you look closely at some of the selections this this year it's clear it's driven by the red carpet like who do they wanna have on the red carpet you look in the TV category. There are multiple nominations. The Nation's for the morning show a apple series that didn't get great reviews because Jennifer Aniston is coming reese. Witherspoon is coming nominees. And then you look at Ava d'auvergne as when they see us. One of the most critically acclaimed series of the past year. Didn't get any nominations. So it's it's important for the NBC. Show to have that star Klaus. So there's eyeballs soap so people watch I think that's part of the bias historically for the Golden Globes that you can say if they're judging between good filmmaker and a less name. They generally are going to vote for the alias name and they also have some historical by sees that are shared by the Academy in the seventy seven year history of the Globes. Only five women have ever been nominated for best director in this year. There are lots of really good female filmmakers that we're up Greta Gerwig for Little Women Livia Wild for Book Smart Allah Hurrell Ralph. Honey Boy Marielle Heller Beautiful Day in the neighborhood. Not One of them got nominated so golden gloves has a pretty poor history when it comes to nominate women Amen. The Golden Globes has made some effort to try to rehabilitate this reputation. What has it done? It's made sure that people. Oh who are members actually have legitimate credits as journalists. There've been some reports of. I guess you could call it. Bribery or are expensive gifts. In the past I think they've tried to eliminate all of that so again. They have cleaned up their act. But there's only so much legitimacy yeah see you can bring to yourself when you're only ninety journalists writing for publications that if we had the names I guarantee you you've probably never heard of them and yet the industry I guess mostly plays along and an actor or director or studio can use success at the Globes as part part of their campaign going into Oscar season hundred percent and I think that is one of the most interesting parts of the story everybody in Hollywood they would knows in their soul that the Golden Globes are really not totally legitimate and yet the studios and independent in companies and marketing departments. Embrace them because they recognize. There's a game to be played and the game is. We're going to court the Golden Globe voters we're GONNA this have screenings and QNA's for them and if we get a nomination are actor or are filmmaker is going to be on their award show and people are going to start talking about the film film and one thing that gets the other but they do know that really. It's not totally legit but it serves their purposes academy award. Campaigning is a multi million dollar. Business there are people who work as campaign consultants who get hundreds of thousands of dollars for getting nominations. Oscar wins. There is a huge business behind all of this and in some ways it might drive ticket sales or people to stream movies so it's driven by finance is driven by trying to get eyeballs on the movies but it's all kind of a hustle so John I've never covered the entertainment industry that closely so like a lot of people in the public. I really always just saw the Golden Globe awards as the first among that more high profile award shows to spotlight the top films of the year. Going into Oscar seasons am I am I off on that or you're not technically off. I mean because because the Hollywood foreign press association nominates into different categories for most of the major film awards they cast a wider net. So just mathematically they're bound to include a lot of movies that end up getting nominated. I wouldn't say that much of a bellwether but because they're embracing so many movies they have a mathematical chance of getting most of those things right. John Horn out in New York. John Thanks for joining us to talk about the Golden Globes will see when you get back thanks for sitting in and before airtime we reached out to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association to request a list the voting members and the news outlets they represent.

Best Director and best actor for consideration in all categories Welcome back to the frame. I'm Steven Cuevas in for John Horn. If you've ever been to the Huntington in San Marino not far from our studios in Pasadena you you know. It's easy to spend an entire day. Just strolling through the neatly manicured botanical gardens. But next time you're there don't skip the library and the art museum in celebration of Huntington's founding one hundred years ago by Henry and Arabella Huntington the exhibition nineteen nineteen paints. A picture of that first. MULCH was year. The exhibit is comprised entirely of items from the Huntington's collection there were either acquired published or displayed in nineteen nineteen from. Benjamin Franklin's handwritten autobiography geography to suffer just pamphlet celebrating the passage of the nineteenth amendment. John Horn recently paid a visit to talk with James Glistening Jennifer Watts Co curator's of nineteen eighteen nineteen. They explained what Henry Huntington was focused on collecting one hundred years ago by the time. No one thousand nine hundred rolls around Huntington had purchased on the Order of one hundred and twenty thousand then item says a huge collection. It was on the East Coast still and he's still aggressively buying so he puts bids at something like fifty auctions that year. He The week before the trust document is actually signed. One of his favorite dealers springs. One hundred twenty one thousand dollars worth of Shakespearean works to the House here here in San Marino so he is still all in and actually just ramps it up in the twenties so he's still buying the great works of British and American history and literature richer really focused on the great men of history so he is also trying to do something in San Marino. California I think is important in terms of what we're seeing now and that is to establish this area as a rival to the east coast and maybe Europe and does that start to affect the kinds of things. He's he's bye-bye well. He's very much focused on early. American history and literature and early British history and literature and so he's working really hard to collect all the first editions since Shakespeare. He's actually competing with the British library. And he's also competing with some of the major east coast institutions. But he's got the leg up because he's buying entire libraries at a time so all the early papers of Virginia you know come here and whatnot. But it's really not until a few years later that he really starts thinking talking about California as an emphasis collecting and California as we call it and his librarians. Really start going in whole hog on that I I mean Huntington is creating history as. He's he's settling here by bringing this institution here but also by just the very fact that. He's brought the Streetcar System System. He's real estate is his main occupation and he's laying out suburb so he's sort of history in the making with Huntington here like anybody who who is collecting art. At the time Henry Huntington has a European white male focus and that is reflected in a lot of what you you see in the art gallery walls when you're thinking about how you can represent a broader spectrum of the country at that time at nine hundred nineteen order order things in the collection that can illustrate beyond what Huntington himself might have been drawn to because his collection is focused was pretty narrow. WPRO ASKS FOR A lot of people at that time so keep in mind that while this exhibition is about the year nineteen nineteen. It includes food items brought to the Huntington all the way up to twenty nineteen so some moments in the show where we tell other stories are the US marshals papers for instance. That are right here. They're the kind of parole records so to speak for German citizens who were required are to report to the Marshal's office once a week and kind of check in other. German citizens were jailed under pretty flimsy charges. We have have An amazing book by Delilah Beasley. It's the history of African Americans in California published in Nineteen nineteen. We have wobbly. Industrial Workers of the World Literature. We also have a lot of material believe it or not about the German revolution. So one thing was discovery of Jenny's in fact. The Huntington Huntington has an extraordinary collection of German posters from roughly nineteen seventeen to about nineteen twenty nineteen twenty one. We've got ten thousand one of them. We've got four on the wall and one of them reads Warning I'm translating. Stopping is prohibited riders. There's will be shot. This is an image from the German revolution of January. Nineteen nineteen which was a short-lived Communist revolution. And I think that's definitely a story. Sorry along with the wobbly material along with this. US marshals material that one might not expect to encounter at the Huntington. So much of what you're talking about. How suggests what's going to happen? In the years and decades to follow the registration of german-american suggests the internment that's GonNa Happen during World War. Two you there are artifacts about the wobbly and about the fight to unionize and the penalties that some union organizers faced which was death and lynching and then there are are things like the German revolution when you start thinking about what this snapshot of Nineteen Nineteen represents how much of the future history of the country during the world. Do you think is really told. Start looking closely at what. We're seeing here an extraordinary amount so really. It's the mishandling for the stumbles. At the precise peace conference that set the stage for the Second World War. It's the social chaos and Germany in nineteen nineteen and the near breakdown of civil order right as the Weimar Constitution's being written that sets the stage for the rise of the Nazis in the nineteen thirties. `Isolation Azam in American foreign policy for the Twenties and thirties. Become set at this moment. But it's not as I like to try to say it's not all bad. So women got the the right to vote. Huntington's Streetcar System is kind of its edits. Apogee in Nineteen Nineteen And that's the sort of backbone around around which the metropolis of La would continue to grow for another forty or fifty years before they ripped it up and put in the freeway in what we hoped in setting up the exhibition is did did people. Moving through would make those connections themselves rather than kind of hammering away on the Nineteen Nineteen Twenty nineteen parallels. Let people make those connections themselves and certainly you pick you did it so I want to look at a map so we go walk. It's maps there are some amazing maps around us right now. What is this epic map? That goes almost across tire gallery. This is an epic map. This is thirty nine foot long linen map rolling a map which is completely unrolled. That's the first time we've ever unrolled it. which is depicting the delineating the Pasadena? Short Line Redcar system from Old Town Pasadena. All the way to the outskirts of you've downtown Los Angeles drawn over decades. The short line opened in one thousand nine hundred two and was going for many many decades. so so everything that's shown on this map reveals not only the route of the Pacific Electric Red Car but all contiguous real estate holdings the titles was to land the deeds the changes in placenames the additions of towns. But it really shows the extent to which transportation and real estate are intertwined in the city of Los Angeles Really Huntington put in his transportation network to get people to his real estate holdings. It was a loss leader leader for him and so he was really trying to move people out to the hinterlands where he had built these suburbs and remember the suburbs also had racially restrictive covenants on them him as did many of these neighborhoods. That the streetcars going through. So it's just an amazing time to really reflect on the demographics and the topography. Yeah of the city and how it got to be the way it is how does sound and music play in this show. I saw that you put together. Gather a spotify playlist what elements of music represented either visually or. Do you want people to walk around the gallery. Listening to their spotify playlist about the Huntington show. Well right here on the wall. We have some sheet music covers and I think just reading the titles. Give you a sense so there's salvation lassie of mine. She's in an army uniform. And you can see in the distance a bunch of soldiers heading into what looks like canteen. There's another called. I'm forever blowing bubbles in. Its this woman looking in the distance surrounded by a whole bunch of bubbles. Let the rest of the world go by my baby's online on. Ah You'd be surprised by Irving Berlin and then my favorite how you gonNA keep them down on the farm after they seem Perry only after a Wave banning What all of these started to say to us is that this was a really a moment of nostalgia so for all of the world changing events for the horrors of the war for the tragedies of the route summer and the violence against African Americans that year popular culture pop culture? That's what the says isn't reflecting that instead it's giving us a nostalgic light view and we felt like this room we're standing in his cold return and the return section is not just about soldiers coming home but about this desire to turn the clock back which we we all know is an possible.

The word accolade was borrowed into English in the sixteenth century from French. The French now in turn derives from the verb at lay which means to embrace and ultimately from the Latin term co loom, meaning neck colon is also an ancestor of the English word caller when it was I borrowed from French accolade referred to a ceremonial embrace that once marked the conferring of a knighthood the term was later extended to any ceremony conferring knighthood, such as the more familiar tapping on the shoulders with the flat part of a sword's blade and eventually extended to honors or awards in general with your word of the day.

A New Entertainment World Order

"Welcome back this product. We'd take ten minutes to get you smarter on the collision of Tech Business Politics. I'M DEBORAH MAC and today show apple's new fight and the end of the WTO the first a new entertainment world order yesterday. The Golden Globes announced its nominations and on the television side the broadcast networks. Were shut out completely. And maybe even more notably there were twice as many nominations for streaming companies shows as the were from shows from premium cable networks. And then they're even less for shows from basic cable so a big day for Netflix and Hulu and Amazon and even apple which got three nominations for its critically show the morning show. Oh wait fewer cheers for. Hbo Showtime Fx and BBC. America at least for now since obviously it is possible. Streamers could get rolled once the actual envelopes are opened. Why the nominations matter beyond the Hollywood egos is that they reflect how? The entertainment industry's Power Center shifted. And would that shift is coming tons. Sons of investment new programs suggesting the golden age of television is really the platinum age with all of the streamers including new entrant Disney spending billions and billions of dollars to be the one with the little trophies at the end. The big question though is if these investments are actually worth it remember the Golden Globes themselves will still be broadcast on. NBC ABC a Broadcast Network. Because that's where it still easiest to get a live audience and no matter how many awards streaming show gets. We still have no clue if that show has more viewers than typical broadcast network Sitcom or a basic cable reality show the economics may be changing. But they're hardly decided added in fifteen seconds we'll go deeper with media reporter Sara Fischer but first this axiom chief. Technology correspondent Dana free shares breaking news in analysis on the most consequential companies players intact from the valley to DC. Subscribe to get smarter. Faster at sign-up dot axios Dot Com and now back to the program podcast. We're joined now by actually media reporter Sara Fischer Sarah. Let's start here. Why do these These companies whether they'd be streaming or cable. Why do they care so much about award? I mean is it just executive ego the ability to attract talent for future projects or or the really monetary value believed to be attached to it. I think they care about awards. First and foremost because there is monetary value attached to it. We've done some reporting that suggests just that before a movie wins an Oscar but after its nominated is when it makes most of its money so does how get some butts in seats. The other thing hanging to your point about talent it does help them. Recruit not just great actors but also producers great directors if they think that they are going to go to a studio and be able to create a hit where they can get recognized for it and then the last thing is I think it helps them control narrative. Were in a situation. Where a lot of these companies are trying to broker sponsorship some partnerships whether they'd be with commercial brands and if you have the ability to say look we want X. amount of Oscars last year? We're still relevant. That helps your company. drive results even throughout the rest of its business ventures it can be very powerful on the TV side is what we're seeing here with the Golden Globe nominations yesterday and the streaming companies really dominating certainly compared to broadcast but also compared to cable is what we're seeing basically just kind of twenty years later. The same thing we saw when cable started overtaking broadcast. Yeah I think that these things move in waves I think that when cable started to overcome broadcasts a large part of it was because it gives consumers choice consumers wanted to be able able to get niche access to something they're passionate about whether it was music and MTV and vh one or sports with ESPN. But now we're seeing sort of a rejection of that model consumers feel as though they are being forced to consume everything when they buy these big bulky expensive cable bundles and they actually probably just want the very generic few do things that they need. which typically is just you know the broadcast networks and then they'll pay all for the stuff they want whether that's a streaming subscription to espn plus or or maybe NFL network or? Maybe it's you know just an add on package but they don't WanNa have to be burdened with these heavy thick cable packages anymore we've seen seen obviously from the streaming companies led by Netflix but all of them huge investments in content. Over the past. Couple of years I mean just incredible investments the Golden Globe nominations yesterday is that a reflection reflection that the investment is paying off. And I don't just mean oh we're getting nominations but paying off in a call a return on investment way or is it more well if Throwing two hundred shows out there couple of we're going to get nominated. No it's definitely paying off investment perspective network suspending unprecedented amount of money to make sure that these films are going to be hits and the reason that they're doing that by the way is to help make sure that they stay relevant in the streaming wars. They'd know that they have a big bulky content library where could be hard to sift through to find the good stuff and what they do is invest in really high quality content noxious TV shows but also films like the Irishman so that you as a consumer consumer can associate Netflix with being a brand that houses quality content similar to the way people thought of H. B. O.. For a really long time. That's why they're spending really they want consumers to feel as though it's a place that can get deliver high quality content as well as a multitude of everyday content that you just need for utility if if you're say the broadcast networks which got shut out and as you write today obviously the the actual Golden Globe awards are going to be broadcast on NBC. Because that's still where you can get a live audience but is the way the broadcast nets respond to this. Did they start throwing huge amounts of cash or do they just say you know what that's not our game anymore. They can't these broadcasts. Networks are held to a different standard gender by Wall Street in many cases. You don't have the leverage if you are comcast NBC universal to dump whatever it is fifteen billion dollars net flicks is dumping into its streaming platform in content there. You just don't have the same type of leeway to do that so even if they wanted to they can't. I know I actually was laughing a little bit yesterday yesterday. Comcast came out and they said we're GONNA pour two billion dollars into our streaming service peacock and I was thinking to myself. Wow that's interesting. Because Disney's looking spend north of fifteen fifteen billion dollars net flicks suspending around that much and comcast does spend a lot of money. But you're going to have to spend unprecedented amount of money and if you're broadcast network that's owned by Telco Toko. Investors want to see Telco spending all that cash on content. Look what's happening with. At and T.. It used to be the way we judged television shows shows successor or the way at least the business world generally judged. It was ratings right. You know this is the number one show where it's the number one show on Thursday nights or whatever it is we still am. I correct. Reckon saying whether it be Netflix or Amazon Apple. TV They might win awards but we don't really know how many people are watching any of those programs whereas we still know how many people are watching something on ABC see your CBS or Fox. That's right and we have Nielsen. Ratings to measure television and even though they're imperfect they're the best we've got. They allow us to compare apples to apples Different different shows across broadcast television and cable. Television anything that you would watch linearly the problem with streaming is that these streamers will often dispute third party figures Nielsen has started it to measure streaming content. And instead they'll say well we'll selectively put out figures when we think that's right. It's hard to actually say whether or not x amount of People Watch Bird Erdman X.. Amount of people really watch the Irishman at think in the future. If the streamers WANNA be taken seriously by brand partners especially they're going to have to start coming coming up with a way to uniformly measure their content and there are a lot of vendors out there that are trying to measure streaming. But they don't have the buy in from the full industry until we get to a point where we can measure streaming uniformly with one trusted source. Maybe a few trusted sources the way that we can with television. I think it's going to hold the industry back Sir or Fisher axios media reporter thank you so much for joining us my final two right after this. There's more news out there than ever before but these days it's harder than ever to find it and to know what to trust axios. AM takes the effort of getting smart by synthesizing. The ten stories. That will drive the day and telling you I they matter subscribe at sign up dot axios Dot Com and now back to the podcast. Now it's time for my final two and I up his apple which in August due to former employees for breach of contract contract and specifically the ex employees left to launch a new server chip startup called Nubia and poached a bunch of his former apple colleagues thus pissing off apple so this is interesting for contract lawyers but the real intrigue is that Apple's complaint implies at accessed the ex employees phone records and text messages and that could could be a PR mess for a company so focused on positioning itself as pro privacy. That's even sometimes using animation that converts these stem. It's apple into the top of a lock and finally the White House. Today will effectively kill the World Trade Organization which was formed to settle trade disputes between nations. Around twenty five years ago specifically the trump administration has spent the past two years blocking the WTO from appointing new members to a seven person board. That's supposed to hear these cases leaving it now with a minimum of three members embers but two of those three have their terms expired today meaning the WTO process is for all intents and purposes dead at trump's hand now for the president this means he can now impose whatever tariffs he likes when he likes on the other hand no more. US victories in the WTO. Like the recent record seven and a half a billion dollar ruling after the US sued Europe for granting illegal subsidies to Airbus actually this is Felix Salmond puts it thusly quote. WTO was negotiated before China dominated international national trade and before the Internet disrupted all global commerce. A new agreement is desperately needed. And while there's no way that trump or his US trade representative will negotiate such such a deal trump successor might be able to and we're done big. Thanks for listening to my producers.

Measure the day by task, not time

"Hey listeners. Have you heard about the new show Little Fires Everywhere Academy Award Winner Reese Witherspoon and Golden Globe nominee, Kerry Washington both starring and Produced the episode limited series, only on who the series follows, the intertwined fates of the picture, perfect Richardson family, an enigmatic mother, daughter duo who move into town, and append their lives with devastating consequences now streaming check out new episodes, every Wednesday only on Hulu. Welcome to before breakfast a production of iheartradio. Good Morning. This is Laura. Welcome to the before breakfast podcast. Today's tip is to learn to measure the days. Accomplishments by task not time. As episode is first airing. In late March, two thousand and twenty lots of people are working from home for the first time in an attempt to slow the spread of covid nineteen. Well some jobs cannot be done remotely. It's turning out that many can which will have all sorts of ramifications for when life returns to something approaching normal. That said just because people can work at home doesn't mean it's easy. I remember when I first started working for my kitchen table fulltime back in two thousand and two. Before that, I'd always had in the office jobs or had been at school attending classes. For the first time I'd wake in the morning and realized that the day in front of me with somewhat dizzying -Ly Open. When you go to an office, you feel like you've done something just by changing locations and sitting down at your desk. You, end the day at five or six PM. Because that's what everyone else does in the absence of that. How did I know if I accomplished anything or not? And I use the word dizzying literally here. I actually felt dizzy. But within a few days I realized that time and location didn't have to be the marker of productivity that I felt them to be in the past. Instead I could manage my days by tasks each day. I could assign myself a certain number of tasks if I did them I'd had a good day. And so that is what I've been doing ever since. I start the day with shortlist of things. I definitely want to accomplish its short. Because as you might imagine, stuff comes up. I might decide to take on something that would need to be in by five PM. That I didn't even know about at nine am. In general I do wind up working about forty hours a week, but that's because budgeting tasks to my week that take about forty hours not because I'm aiming to log forty hours specifically. If you new to remote work, and especially, if you're new to managing remote workers, this focus on tasks rather than time is key. A lot of people are accustomed to feeling like their employees got in a good day. If everyone looks busy from nine to five, we don't think so critically about their exact deliverables, but we should. Firm employees have regular conversations about exactly what they should be doing, and exactly what? You'd like them to accomplish each day or each week. Ideally they'll be thinking about this to see. You don't have to just dream it up. They can present task list to you at whatever frequency you choose that you can then approve. When they do all these things. Then you'll know they've put in good days. This seems straightforward enough, but what I've talked to business leaders about this some start waxing eloquently about the intangibles you want your employees to come up with great ideas and discuss them with each other. And how can you anticipate this ahead of time? These brilliant insights happen when they're. They're an owing you their mental capacity for a certain number of hours. If an employee accomplishes the daily tasks assigned to her by twelve PM and they're working from home. What's to stop them from quitting? My Answer! Nothing. But so what? If you want people to think through big long term problems assign this as a task, you can totally tell people to dream up ten big. What if scenarios or to think of eight new clients that your company has never worked with, but might. Engaged employees will naturally propose adding some of these more open ended questions to their task lists. Make, it clear that you'll reward such things and they will definitely do them. And also just as I've realized I naturally assigned myself about forty hours worth of tasks. People who work remotely long-term tend to learn to do this, too. When you managed by task, not time, you could wind up with a four hour workweek, but you generally don't. So today especially. If you're working remotely, think about what would make the day feel productive. What would you need to do? If you're managing people get very specific about what tasks would make. You think that the day went well. Everyone will feel far more effective if you're all clear on this as a result. In the meantime. This is Laura thanks for listening and here's to making the most of our time. Hey everybody I'd love to hear from you. You can send me your tips your questions or anything else.

If you were wondering what that little noise was during Andy's little monologue there. His little LEGO car that he works on every day. Just fell off the couch will collectively with my hands at all times. So what Laurie says like a five year old? Like eighteen months ago. A lot of America did not know who Mahershala Ali. I knew who he was because I watched house of cards, right? A couple years ago, and he had a recurring role on house of cards, and he was brilliant Honda. And I didn't know his name. And I was like this guy is really good. He played a really good character on that show for season. And then and then he was in moonlight. Yeah. Which he won the Oscar for right?

It called me her shoe in the bay group in in Hayward. I was born in Oakland Hayward. And so in there is another little nickname HR sage AL, and they they called me Herschel for the most part.

That's just a lot of letters to to learn in Mahershala is now a name that everybody knows and congratulations on your Golden Globe. This is very very heavy. Very heaven. It's. Yeah. You can you. So I mean, really this is this is so deserve because the movie is so incredible. If you haven't seen it you you play this is a based on a true story. Right. Let you explain it. Dr Donald Shirley, and Tony battle Longa went on a road trip together in nineteen sixty two of through the south and Mark character. Donald Shirley, who was a concert pianist lived on top of Carnegie Hall, highly educated, man. Had decided, and nobody was doing this which I think is remarkable but had decided because he was going on a road trip to the south that he was going to hire a chauffeur and bodyguard, which all other black musicians traveling to the south date, but he hired a white guy. And they end up actually becoming friends in are able to sort of respect each other. A bridge is built over that time. And I think Tony by the Longa evolves quite a bit in the in the time in over the course of their journey, and it's such a important movie period. But especially during this time, I think we need we need to see stories like that. It's like, you know, let's let's learn about each other before we start judging. Let's let's actually try to spend time understanding what we have in common and communicate with respect. Yes. Yes. With respect. Here on Ellen on the go.

Yeah. We've done worked together. Let's we've been on the screen together on the screen. Yeah. Here we celebrated his birthday here came here on his birthday. We always like to give people gifts here. And we give him we want to specifically to give him a birthday gift, and he has a particular man crush. Yes. That a lot of people have which is pit Brad Pitt. And he's known he sort of known Dax is sort of known for wearing overalls. And so maybe we combine the two things and gave them a gift. This really is your birthday is it is it horrible to have a birthday so close to Christmas and New Year's argue, it's the worst birthday in the world. A couple of reasons one. It's traditionally when you go back to school as a kid, right? So it was like happy birthday go to school. Right. And then when you get there, you know, there was a big break. So then when they read the like happy birthday is over the loudspeaker, you're among like thirty people who had birthdays nothing special now as an adult when I try to have a birthday party. Everyone has just quit eating carbs. They've they're not drinking all this goes out the window in a week. Right. Birthday is in the first week. Right. I can't get more than six people to attend my birthday, and I'm on television. Yeah. You pop they know Kristen will be there. Right. Still can't get to. Yes. That's a plus d you say, Kristen we'll be there. Always I lead with that. Yeah. Say Chris will be attending the birthday of that ship. Like when I went to your birthday party. Yeah. Ten fifteen thousand people there. Right. Yeah. It's a great day right later in January twenty sixth. Yeah. Okay. Yeah. Why did I think it was a summer affair? All right. We're going to take a break. But I got you a birthday gift. Two things you love you still love Brad, Pitt right? It's Brad Pitt. Oh. Good in every form. Oh my goodness. Wow. He gives amazing relationship advice. Yes. While looking like, you just rolled out from under a Camaro that he was working on Bobby did. Yeah. He's very grunge and cool. Yeah. You really he really does. He looks like he just stepped off a set of the ranch, and he comes in here. And he's a really really smart guy. And he's also really funny. And of course, his lovely wife. Kristen bell. Oh god. I love her knee snuck into the audience and she surprises closest friends. Now. She's now, you're close. She actually I went to Super Bowl with her. Agree to do moms winning. If you were not involved with it. You know, what you don't have to give all the Bahamas. The it's actually in the contract. Yes. Wow. Stay away from her who's going. To fact, check this podcast. That's down. We're. I'm still mad at Donald Trump over the game games preemption, but we'll get to. We'll get to that got him. I loved expert and I love Kristen bell. They're really good good friends about she surprised him, which was so much fun. And they got emotional. All right. We can't have you here without you are so good at answering questions. So it's time for ask. Dr dax. All right. These. I mean, really he's so good at this. I would like to have an entire hour with you doing. That's okay. Alesia casinos. Where's that cassia high stand up? And let's ask Dr Dax Dr Dax how do I tell my husband that his favorite position is not as my least favorite? Okay. Lau. Wow. And you mean like got an airplane like he likes the window seat? And you liked the windows eight. Route. Wait, how long have we been married? Five years. Longtime longtime to not be in your favorite position. Yeah. I'm gonna make some really general broad statements about the sexes and gender. And it's probably give me in hot water. But I'll just say this. I have a hard time believing that your husband has a hard time getting to the finish line. Now. He he's a man he could probably get to the finish line jobs easy. You know, I think we should prioritize you getting in the finish line. So here's my solution is let's start things off in his position. I don't know what that is. Is it in the bedroom? The kitchen. The Wally outbreaks, heavy machinery. Maybe it's just it's maybe he likes to be outdoors more thinking of things that are so basic, but you're trying to get her to say what it is. And she's not going to. I hope. So I would suggest I would say Hon. You know, what let's let's start things off you go crazy. It's your turn midway through. Let's swap. What's switch it up? And I'd like to do what feels best for me because we need to get me over that fix line. Yeah. In both be looking win. Never said to him. That's not my favorite. Or can. We change it up. You've never said that to him. I say, let's change it up. But you don't say I don't like that position. Yeah. I do. With you. Because I love you. I think I think we can keep the whole thing positive. I don't think you have to say I hate that position. I think you could just say, you know, sweetie. I have a position that I preferred it makes it much more pleasurable for me. And so if you went mine of midway through things, I'm going to go off your cues, you know, when you're halfway there. Let's. One eighty. We have a question from Kristen bell stand up. Yes. Yeah. Hi. Curious if say your name, Kristen bell. Over. E L L if what what would you recommend? Getting someone very special like a spouse of further birthday, or how would you spoil them on their birthday? In the bedroom. Let's say I have in the bedroom covered. Outside the bedroom. I would say, please, please please give that person love and support for eleven years. Give them to beautiful baby girls. And you're good. You sit down young lady. Actually, we had to bring her on my birthday. So that people would come. Kristen bell came to see me in the control room. Yeah. Really came to visit me in the booth is very she had to move out of the way, the hug me. And I gave her a gift. Yes, you when you give I was in the NYU library visiting visiting my daughter a couple months ago when I was in the NYU library, and I saw a book children's book all about sloths and Kristen bell, Doris this law. Right. And so I gave her a children's book about sloth stole a book from the NYU library. I said you library and what I mean when I say NYU library NYU books central. Heels from from places of academia in this fancy pen. They're very nice. Let's talk about a great gas. We had this week by the name of Jake Bain. Oh, yeah. Who was a high school football star is now a division. One college football star, Indiana state, Indiana state. Yep. And at the end of high school he made a big decision and Kevin can speak to it. As are gay embassador cast. Well, one thing I like about our show is like, I don't think other shows would ever book him because by like TV standards. He didn't do something spectacular done. Like there was no viral video of him. Yeah. It was wasn't juggling. Rated him for being who he was at such a young age in a very tough environment. Yes. And as someone who came out well into their thirties. I'm so jealous of him for knowing who he was honest about it and announcing it to. Line. So it's coming out early jaw line. And eyebrows. Those this kid stepped up to a microphone at school and came out and is now a star on a division one team in college a lot of. A lot of kids feel like there's no other especially if you're an athlete Obita feels very strange because there's not a lot of gay rights and this kid by doing what he did is just creating a new space for other people to be open. Yeah. And it was really I think I I happen to think that there's more gay athletes than we actually. No, I do. Locker room. You did go to the Super Bowl. Find out. Did I mention over into the? I just think I just think any time someone comes out who is a member of very tough community, which is football. I think it it helps ease the pressure for a lot of people and a lot of kids versus I before. I came out used to watch your show, the all the time, and it just means so much to me to actually be here now and be on your show, and you've done so much for every for the entire community and just humanity as a whole so that means so much for me to be on the show. Thank you. Well, first of all, let me say, I admire you, I'm proud of you. I know how hard it is for anyone to come out, especially a football player in a small town. So and you look very very nervous doing that speech. How long have you been thinking about it? Honestly, I can't probably three or four years say, I was really nervous. I it was right before we just we just won the state championship my sophomore year football. And right after that everything I was just like at an all time high at that point. And I was getting so much attention for athletics. And but at the same time with the back of my head I started to start questioning my sexuality, and what I what it was truly wanted. So I was really nervous at first. And then I mean, my my school was super supportive and everything that's great. But I knew that. I mean, it could be different once I came out, and I was actually out there in the public. So it was nervous at first. But I was definitely embracing love by everybody. Right. That's great. Because it's a really. Inflicting thing to feel really proud of yourself and good at something. And then in the back of your mind have shame and and carry shame around. So you're living this kind of private secret conflict life in. It's it's really it's it's not healthy. You know? So that's so great. You did that. All right. So the school was supportive. Yes. Yes. My school. I would to a pretty small high school and Saint Louis, Missouri. But it was a very accepting community. Everybody from the students to the faculty. It's even the staff and the custodial workers were all embracing me with so much love and support. And I never found anybody there who disliked me because those guy so now you're playing for Indiana state. And how's that going? I mean must have been worried about your your career in football, right? Yeah. It was definitely I had a lot of nerves coming out on because at that time. I was there weren't very very many out openly gay football players, so or any or any. That couldn't count them on one hand. So once I got Indiana state. It was like all of those nerves were set aside really fast because even before I committed there, I talked to the coach about my sexuality, and that I wanted to be openly gay Indiana state, and he assured me from the very beginning that I was going to be accepted by my community by the community, Indiana state, and that my teammates we're going to treat me just like anybody else on the team. So that just meant so much to me that from the older guys right away. Well, and that means that other people hearing that now in their if everybody would have the courage to do what you did then we wouldn't have that homophobia. We wouldn't have that fear. And so you're going to inspire other people just like, you know, I inspired you and gave you the hopes and dreams because life can be beautiful life doesn't have to be hard can be everything you want it to be. And you have a boyfriend hunters in the audience high hunter. Here. All right. Well, so the NCAA regulations say you can't accept gifts because you're an athlete or some stupid things like that. So hunter is going to get a six nights day at the John Machel Cousteau resort in Fiji. And right. Oh, maybe he'll bring you. I don't know. Airfare. Tim right back. And then we send him and his young lever to romantic trip on an island. We'll talk about that a different podcast. Drink. We'll we'll get there. You're twenty it's beautiful. You know, Kev. I got a lot of beautiful places. I don't drink. I have a wonderful time. Do you marry when you were twenty with somebody you've been dating for six months? Let's talk about what Trump for a sec. Okay. Let's talk about Donald Trump. To take us through this calf to our premier plants promoted all over NBC millions of dollars of advertising. I'm sure for game of games games premiere of season two of game of games who's going to air to we're going to have the first episode at eight second episode at nine. Yep. Then what happened that Donald Trump decides he needs to primetime airspace? And so they give him. It was originally to be ten minutes after the first hour that would be normal than ten minute break to see down Trump in his speech. And then they'd continue with the second hour a little bit later. Right. Then turns out there was going to be a rebuttal. And they want some commentary so all in it was going to be about forty minutes. So then they made the last minute called switch out the second hour of the premiere yet with a repeat from season one, which I think was them being really nice in protecting our show. This would be terrible to only see the last. But the point is I believe Donald Trump is not a fan of game of games. He decided to pick a night where he would hurt us. And you can't ask them not directly, of course. Because he's blocked you. No. I you know, what? I mean. No, yes. No. He has blocked me. But like all night. All these all nights to give that good news. Donald Trump has blocked you. But Donald Trump junior has also blocked you. Erica Vonk Erica, Eric and Vonk. They've all blocked me. But here's the thing. That's not what we're here to talk about what we're here to talk about is game of games. Despite all that was the highest rated. The highest rated show of the night in the eighteen to forty nine which is the most important category and the forty eight fifty two bins. Yes of the night. So it was still a win for us. But it definitely rattled. That's when we heard that he was speaking. Because of course, all the networks after then do that. We know it was confusing for a lot of you. So thank you. Thank you for tuning into our was there and the another new episode next Tuesday. Ellen had a solution should this ever happened again. Yes. And here's what that is. On Tuesday, the premiere of my game of games was interrupted by the president speech. It was a big mess. People were confused NBC had to run a repeat because the coverage went too long. But then gave me a an idea that will make everybody happy. So the next time the president wants to make it announcement. He can do it like this. Five billion dollars for physical barrier at the request of Democrats will be a steel barrier rather than a concrete wall. This barrier is absolutely critical to border security the border wall. You have to tune into the show to see Donald Trump dropping on our go is very very funny. So funny, and he drops I would say about a second and a half faster than his hair. Yeah. There's a very fun app that we launched called game of games the game. That's free in the app store and Google play. And you can on your couch play along while the show is happening. Hold up your phone to the screen, and you collect these boxes there. A are. They pop right onto your phone. It's very cool, and you can win five thousand dollars. If you get all the boxes the puzzle A R stands for. America mended reality. You're smart. I've been augmented what? Nope. Well, first of all I watched I watched game a game three times. Right. So I watched the east coast feed with Kevin is office last night. Then I went home, and I watched it with Julie. And then this morning, my kids wanna watch it. And there's Kev I think has often said that he comes up with the names of the games before he actually comes up with what the game plays gonna be. But he did come up with the game cold called ocean SHI P S H I P O ship. So my six year old this morning is eating or Serio watching ship. And Ellen goes we're gonna play a new game called os ship. And Katie says, I thought she said she said ship. So funny, and I knew that would make Kevin very super cute. She's a cute girl. Katie. She's a cute girl. Let's talk about the text that Andy sent we're on a group text. Yep. It's it's me Mary, Andy, Kevin and Ellen right an-. Andy Senate text to the group on New Year's day because we were coming back to work on the second. I need to lose eight or ten pounds tomorrow or I can't come in. That's how I felt I did a lot of eating over the holidays. And and yes, and I think it's it's a it's a thing. Everyone deals with over the holidays starting from about how weaned the candy through new here. At least that's how long by everyone. Andy means Andy Daime, destroy go for everyone. If you listen to the podcasts, you know, Kevin went through lap band surgery. And then I think what was it three months through the band. Already made that joke about you earlier in this podcast. I went. What I went. So Ellen decided to talk about New Year's diets and sort of all the resolutions people make what's that? She say, Andy. Zero memory of it. When you create every aspect of the show like I do and you have to do on a daily basis on top of that. You've created game of games a hit primetime show. Sometimes I forget things. But anyway, Kevin talk about the New Year's diet monologue Ellen. Did we can just let her do it? Here's her monologue about diets. Maybe don't correct me on the air. Happy new year. Everybody. And I'm gonna say this year the best audience with had all year. Isn't that funny? It's two thousand nineteen. It's exciting to start a new year. It's full of possibilities. If you look to your right everybody looked here right now. Look to your left one of you will be hosting the Oscars this year. Congratulations. You had a good holiday everybody. I tried to focus on what was important eating as much as I could before I had to go on a diet. That's what I did every year every everyone's number one resolution is to lose weight. And there's a new diet every year. They always seem so promising last year, I tried something called the blood type diet. Have you heard the type it's a great diet? If you want to lose weight and also be tired and angry at the same time. I got an appointment with Dr Who specializes in the blood type diet. I went to his office. I get undressed down to my underwear on the table. And I start singing I will survive as loud as I can. And. I'm thinking my sixtieth birthday. I'm sorry. That was not a doctor's office. But poor portion fourth. I call her paw. Nickname. I have. What the portion I did the same test. But we had different results. They both came back gay. But other things were different. We had the the gay blood. But then the other things. Apparently, there are one hundred sixty different types of blood and for each type. There are foods that you cannot eat. And it's very specific you get a list like you can have a book, but you can't have couscous, but someone else can have, you know, buck. We'd and you can't ha it's it's really really specific like you can have line. You can't have lemons which is mine list, and which is really tough because now when life hands limbs, I'm fat. For my blood tested came back that I can't have caffeine. So yes. So I have to change my blood. Really should do watch the show every day watch every model it is unfiltered Ellen. Well, you can check your DVR first all on your TV second of all love the show. You don't have to watch it every day at three o'clock in the afternoon. If you're not around you can watch it when you get home. And if all that fails go down to subscribe today on apple podcasts or wherever you're listening right now. And don't forget to watch Ellen weekdays for lots of fun and really lots of heart as thank you to you guys for listening, and we've been getting a lot of tweets and social media people saying that they love our podcast, and it makes us feel good Marion friends. Yeah. They do they do compliment Perrier and Kevin at a little bit more than me. And I don't get here. It's like they're taunting me away. Without further ado, we will see you next time.

I mean you've gotta hear them. You got to know them. It's important stuff and listen. We're not done talking about the Golden Globes. We're going to dig into this stuff and get into it first things first. We have to talk about the elephant in the room. Okay the live Action Lion King is nominated in the animation Asian category. Oh what what blasphemy is this. I feel gasoline. I mean I have been gas Flett. I thought the movie was live action and now it's the animated. I mean I mean. Obviously people had a lot of feelings about this year's nominees so let's do it. Let's go through the Golden Globes award season snubs. It's time for see the first glaring airing snub is obviously the depressing lack of female directors nominated the La Times covered this neb saying quote. This year's Golden Globes director. Nominations proved the Hollywood foreign impress association. Still has a sexism problem throughout its seventy five year history. Women have been nominated for best director at the Golden Globes only seven times and Greta. GERWIG WIGGs still hasn't been nominated and quote. I Know Greta Gerwig film little women. Technically hasn't come out yet so I have no basis for knowing how good the movie is but like come on I is knowing my heart is good and I know based on nothing at all that it's the best movie of the year and deserves the directing nomination. I mean come on. This is a total stub. All Ma Harare. The Director of the movie. Honey boy starring Shiloh above spoke out against the all-male line-up for best director tweeting quote. Good morning to everyone. That's writing me about the Hashtag Golden Globes. I feel you but no This I was on the inside for the first time this year. These are not our people and they do not represent us. Do not look for justice in the award system. We're building a new world and quote other snubs. Include Robert Deniro getting nothing for his acting and the Irishman David do Bernie's Netflix show. When they see us got totally snubbed? People are super shocked. That joker got nominated for best picture and Todd Phillips Director of Joker got the DOM instead of Greta. Gerwig people are also kind of confused about Cate hate blanchette getting the nomination for. Where'd you go Bernadette a movie that came out this past August but is now kind of just a fading memory after it got some tepid reviews? Oh Ya And Game of thrones. This past season was totally unappreciated by the FDA who basically said. I don't know her to the show's final season. Aside from Kit Harrington's acting non at the show got nothing stranger things and this is us both also got ignored this year after being nominated in the past asked Okay and and can we swing back around to the Lion King. Just one more time. Because I can't wrap my head around it. Disney boasted all year long but this movie was live action action but now we're seeing Islam needed as an animated film. I mean come on. It's almost all computer generated. So that's considered animation. But still I was surprised to see it in that category did Disney Disney submitted as an animated film. Or what while the playlist wrote about this anomaly saying quote beyond say earning an original song nomination was a given but the Disney studios the film. Earning an animated film nod wasn't the playlist can confirm the studio did not submit for the Globes in this category and it's not recognized as as such the Oscars end quote on top of being nominated for a Golden Globe for best song beyond say's also gracing the January twenty twenty twenty cover of Al Magazine and the profile dropped today in this L. Profile beyonce as photographed by Queen and slim director. Melina at soukous and she's posing in various locations nations throughout the Crenshaw District of La some highlights of the interview include a moment wer- beyond sake confesses to shopping at target.

I think the most stressful thing for me is balancing work and life making sure I am present for my kids dropping blew off at school taking roomy and Sir to their activities making time for date nights with my husband and being home in time to have dinner with my family all while running a company can be challenging juggling. All of those roles can be stressful. But I think that's life for any working mom and quote when the interviewer asked beyond on say what question do you hate to answer beyond say responded. Sanctuary hates getting asked. If she's pregnant adding quote get off my ovaries and quote. The interviewer are also asked to be on. Say if she ever reacts to negative comments about herself and beyond say responded saying quote yes I'm human in moments of vulnerability I try to remind remind myself I'm strong and I'm built for this. Thank God most of the noise bounces off of me after all these years and quote. I'm sure every day in the beyond say household is hectic to a degree but she's she's got to be especially busy today aside from the L.. Cover and her Golden Globe nomination. She also teased her. Iv Park collaboration with Dita's posing shots of what appeared to be pieces from an upcoming line to her instagram with the Caption Ivy Park January eighteen. The Hollywood reporter covered this and wrote quote. The superstar star singer joined Adidas as creative design partner in April and as part of the deal moved her.

Thanks for coming in. We appreciate it. Especially since you've been all over the country safe months Well let's start with your latest single kissing other people Simply where the idea for the song come from entre people can think of ideas from the source for so So so I was dating this guy for a bit and I was kind of we had broken up and I was kind of in the process of moving on and trying to kind of get over him and get over the comfort of knowing that he was there and almost talking to caroline about this who wrote the song and I was just saying to her how it kind of you get to appoint one does you. You can kiss other people in your. Oh I didn't feel like I was cheating on his cell. Even though we're broken up like I don't I don't feel bad offered anymore and that's kind of when okay cool like I'm both like emotionally and physically like over this now And I kind of just was at that point where I was just I was able able to kiss someone else and not feel. Feel sorry for to feel guilty so I was telling Carolina about this and then the next day she went in the session and Started the song and then we attention ally. It's funny how like songs like that and just come out of just a conversation. It was literally a conversation we had. We were driving back. I was like at a writing campaign Kabo Gobbo and literally driving back from the club I like to in the morning and she was like just asking me questions about boys and I was telling her this and then the next day I was in my session. She was in her session writing this. I had no idea that she was going to write about what we talked about. And it was very funny. I literally said Said said in passing I was just like didn't realize that she was getting like Material for a song. You didn't realize you were happy with Dr. She must have cute. It's just that phrase. She totally did a good songwriter. it feels like there's a lot of songs about breakups and a lot of songs about falling in love but it's nice to have a song like about what it feels like to get over that heartbreak you know. Is that the feeling that you're channeling totally. Yeah just that kind of like freedom. You feel when it's okay cool like I don't I don't feel bad anymore like you know what I mean and I can i. There's just a sense of freedom that happens and it's just a nice feeling and We saw your tweet the other day where you decide thought you should know. I am very pregnant with an album album. I'm wondering how reading after pregnant and Yeah there is a lot of people that I was actually pregnant Yeah and you said twenty twenty typically so This'll be your debut album. Yes what can you tell us about the album so far and and where you are at in the process so beyond two where it Kinda puts a bit of a pause on on the making of the album just because you can only do so much when you're touring but Once his tours done I'm going to go after Christmas and like really finish finish everything and Dive in and just kind of completed But before that this to our started I spent a couple of months in la diving in and working bunch on it and Yeah some pretty. It's like very close to being done which is very crazy to think about. Because right now it feels so scattered and my head is kind of all over the place but It's really really it's on. Its Way Way to being finished. And I'm just really excited to have a full album out in the world and I think when it's an album there's just like those are I feel more creative really inspired to be a little more experimental because it just feel like a little bit less pressure on like each song. It's a lot of singles actually can make a body of work and take a little more chances literally exactly what is in singles are just a lot of pressure on like making it fit for everybody. Who's listening you know the team even people around just like it's just a lot of pressure? Yeah one song whereas if I'm like okay I can do album. Mike and Mike make a bunch of stuff and you can exactly take more chances and just feel a little bit more free in experiment on which is like something I've been wanting to a while. So I'm I'm really excited about something. I'm really proud of and is killing other people like sort of the first taste of the album or or are you planning to include other previously released songs on the album to you now or do you even know Kisner people will be the only one so this is like the sign on cycling. Yeah do you have any idea like what timing next year. Actually I Honestly sometimes I do. Yes sometime in like you. I know you don't get nice game but it's just yeah just just thinking the bedrooms Tony Jones. But yeah it'll be like mid mid next year and Are there any you like maybe collaborations. You could talk about whether it's with other artists or with songwriters who you're working with chat. Yeah we tease All of them. UH-HUH I'm trying to think Not with other artists like US album. My kinda just I've done a couple of collaborations and features. It's been so fun but I feel like for the album. I just I kinda WanNa see what happens when it's just me have that. Have that freedom for a SEC But with other writers literally like that Camp I was talking about and Kabul was. It's just a bunch of writers producers that I literally just wrote a list of all my favorite writers producers and we got everyone to come out to Kabul and did like credible as of writing thing so when I was in the session there was three other sessions going on writing for me and then I'll come in like you know change up however there's something it just it was so cool to. I have all my favorite people who really understand me musically being like one place writing for this album so definitely a lot of collaborations as far as producers and writers go oh reload to see some of this writers. Were that was there emily. Warren Caroline as Omar Warren Mike. She's a she's a friend of the pocket. He is amazing Simon Wilcox germ Busby Oh oh he was there well. captain cuts for their work with busby during your Nashville days to like at all. Did he cross shells on the show. Okay I don't think in the country world I met with him when I was still filming the show actually and then later is more when I moved to or not moved by. I started working at L.. A. Like writing more often that I m I started working with him yes well You also mentioned like being on tour kind of being a break break from when you worked on all that it has kind of Nice to maybe. Now go back and revisit those songs and be like okay. Do I love those as much as I did. Then and maybe I love something more than I did the first time around. Yeah it is really nice. It's kind of forced me to just like take a second away from it and tour and just like be like this is a totally different mindset. Serbian like being on the road and playing. I'm playing like the songs from the EP. So like the older songs and are to me. They're older library and they feel old but Yeah so it's called now because then when I go back in exactly I'm GONNA have like a fresh mind and just I think I'll be able to tell things I probably could've told because I was like so in it before you know. Yeah so yeah And speaking of some of your previous previously released songs you also have take away. Your collaboration collaboration with your current tour mates the chains. And Alani I'm How did that Song I come about? Well Emily actually is a good friend of both mine and chain smokers and I think They kind of heard me through through her actually and then On the same label. So that kind of makes it eighty easy. Yeah we knew the tour was happening and I think that after the tour Got Locked in. It was like Ok Kosher Song together. And then it's yeah that's definitely like made it make sense and you know kind of John a lot of lines for people you'll take away you know. This is your first time on a dance track But you also had Jonas Poos Polaroid Roy alongside Liam Payne But a lot of fans got to know you through like a more acoustic sound earlier So what is what is it. That's attracting more to like this electric pop vibe. I guess at least experimenting. Yes Sir in that direction. I think that it's fun to be able to like just just put like my toes and like different parts of Music and being able to just like with features is really cool because ultimately like it's not my song if I can be a part of it and I can kind of get in that world and just explore that world but not be committed to it and you know visit that seven to that world. It's yeah so it's cool 'cause with like take away in You know polaroid like those songs definitely are like nothing like my music. But it's it's been fun to like I just feel that out and just kind of yeah explore I've always I've loved chain smoker for a long time and I love the music and it's it's been cool to to sing a a song that I know that like I would listen to a couple of years ago so yeah that's cool but I think that with my music like it's definitely And on the album to kind of like finding a balance of You know bit more like acoustic he stuff in tronc pop flavourless. I think it taste of it all is like that's like what I was like the balance of everything. 'cause like really like what I'm the most inspired is like acoustic cut of like Americana folk stuff so bringing all that in is like my goal and my own music but then with features. I think it's fun to to branch out and We mentioned your time on Nashville. You have a lot of fans obviously who've been following you for a long time you anderson easy but we're wondering are you finding that there's a whole new audience audience kind of vibe into your soul music who might not have even known you were on TV or any of that. Yeah it's been really cool like to exactly that like find that there's People discovering me like just as me or just as like a solo artist with like the appear whatever or like even with takeaway like obviously there's a bunch of bled did know me before that and then just hear my voice on that song and kind of explore myself but But yeah it's cool. It's totally different. Because prior to this it was everything was because Nashville. Maisy stuff and so it's cool to have Like I feel like a lot of comfort in like the show and like you know let an amazing videos and all that stuff so like having that still but then also like having like new people coming in and and Yeah especially on this tour like it's just is put like I'm being put into so many different is that I wouldn't otherwise be in front of and when I was reading up on your family actually moved to Nashville exactly ten years ago. It was two thousand nine From Canada yeah so I mean like obviously we can see what has happened to you since then but like in your own words like like what. What does that mean for? You know your life trajectory a man. I mean it's kind of it's a crazy thought to imagine having having stayed in you know where I'm from it's pretty like it's a pretty drastic change like Nashville's vary like now especially is very fast moving and I mean as far as like going from where I'm from like it's definitely a massive Change but I think that yeah moving to Nashville is like literally the best thing. I'm for us. We absolutely love Nashville and obviously like I can't imagine having to be on the show if we didn't if we were Nashville so it definitely It it completely changed your lives in every way and it like makes perfect sense for us to be there and you're actually going to have kind of a full circle moment next year because you just lined up some dates at the Reimann man in Nashville basically a hometown show for you in did you. You know when you were filming. Did you have memories like from the Reimann. Oh Yeah Oh yeah we filmed at the Reimann quite a bit. And the Grand Ole opry and I mean it's literally the Reimann for me. I really think it's like the biggest one for me like that. That's going to be the most host. I really like when people ask you know like what is the what would be the biggest thing for you like and most people are like you know mass square garden like there's like those those moments comments and like life like genuinely the right I think is the biggest one for me because I I just. That's where I've seen like everyone and I spent so much time there and like it's just such a lake AAC literally like growing up like that's where I go to you know like with my friends started. Now you'll be there and just it's so crazy to the idea of playing it. Yeah it really is is is fully full circle and and you would never played the Reimann like in your own show no capacity. No I mean I did What we would do? WHO GETS THE GREENWICH operate? The REIMANN They would do like you. Know isn't that. What is the grant? Operate the Raymond and and Maisy and I would do like when they had. I like the shows where we did like one or two song cavalcade. Nothing like this. No this is like my my music in those we doing covers like like no. We never had like Lenin. Maisy songs out you know that we wrote so at the moment they're different. I'm very excited so finally we're running out of time with you but you also have an e you tour lined up next year Starting in February. And you've been on this tour with chain smokers and five and I'm wondering if you have kind of picked anything up on this tour. You're you're thinking like making mental notes. This is what I WANNA take into my own tour. There's lasers lasers and fire. No it's been it's been really cool. I feel like I've learned a lot Just in the sense of like performing in arenas is like is obviously totally a different thing and watching everyone else performing the arena. It's such a different Type of performing in a different light level of off energy and and obviously production is very different and everything is just bigger and Very like alive from start to finish. There's never any dips of energy and I think that Yeah going from playing in clubs or like small theaters like to. This is so different. I've I've learned a lot and I think there's there's a bunch that I'm going to take with me in all my own tours and headlining and just everything I learned really gonNA carry with me for sure. Well that's very exciting Thank thank you so much for your time and good luck with all the new music. We can't wait to hear it. Whenever comes out initiate it?

Kieran Culkin, 'Succession'

"Hi everybody I M Peter Travers is this is popcorn where we tell you what is happening in the culture and I confessed this before this succession on. Hbo Is my favorite. It's my favorite series cheers. You people that are full of game of thrones. You just have to think of something else you know because this is it and in a really rare thing season two is actually actually better. She's in what cool also. I'm thrilled to have Kieran Culkin right here in this chair this one yeah. You've got a couple of people from the show L. in this chair. Haven't you yeah Brian had Nick Brown Bron. I if I had my way I have. Everybody should just bring them all work their way the way where are you gonna go. Here's here's the one who had the Golden Globe nomination. That's true. Did you Robin Thicke. It faces yeah. They were all so mean. They helped me down and kick me in the each one. Just wondering how that happens when you're on a show and then somebody get singled out do they just not mention it or do they say congratulations. Oh they all say congratulations and then. I'm taking off the box like who hasn't said it yet at six. PM Kim Jeremy Strong whereas my congratulations but they could say it in a certain way because none of that none of that none of nobody. It's just good if things happen grace happy if there's like nominations that come in great if they don't great job great like yeah. I think everybody's having a really great time doing it and it's also the kind of show that just feels really collaborative feels like everybody's making this thing so when something like that that happens like the Golden Globe thing happened. It really didn't feel like it was a meeting. It felt like Oh cool. The show got thing and I think that's me trying to be like I didn't and get an emmy nomination but I kind of did because we all we all did. It's all there. You sounded like you had years of therapy when you said that it was just a look I'm still searching for therapists found yeah well. You are from one of the most functional families on television. This is definitely the Roy's or the Kokin okay there's no. I don't know you'd be the best judge who is worse. what's a functional family. They just haven't seen one yeah. I don't know they're all might have moments of functionality but we don't yes and I think with this show. It's a bit like they're not more or less kind of with all their power and money and all that stuff they're still just like like the rest of us equally is thank you can say any. I just wanted to say that you came in saying it sounds rhythmic and melodic coming from Your Lips. It's just incredible but I need the money in Jilin and to set this up because there are still some people that haven't seen succession what I don't talk to them saying they haven't seen it. They're behind behind on season one but now season two comes season one had gotten you know a lot of attention but now people are watching it more. It's got five five emmy nominations including best series so I'm sure your heads are even more huge and yeah you never before amazing racing with the biggest thing ever game of what people see you on the street. Do they recognize you now as Roman. Yeah I've gotten a few of those. and mostly people call me. That's actually happened a lot and it's not it's like I feel like they almost feel like you know Wallace Shawn Being People Oh yelling inconceivable at him when he walks on the street one thinks and they're like the first one to do that right like that. Show you're like. I know that's the show I mean. I realize I don't know but the the guy sure is high saw somebody mistake someone for you and rory said to his it could have been right yeah. I don't think so I would have known and they said there's no succession and I thought again. One of the great great compliment would be new. I haven't heard that one. I feel like they said no you the past when you were hailing a cab today. There's there's Mike that was great but his insults are just golden. They're just wonderful. When Roman says something to you. Yeah it's pretty great just no filter whatever comes comes to the brain and he handled the brother who is going through so many traumas and and is in Rehab and everything is happening and you know he's unshaved unshaved candle. He's looks like this do you help them to create these There's like okay so they write. It and it's pretty horrible. Some of the things things that Roman has to say and then some of the other writers they start throwing alternative lines out there and to my mind I think they would deny this but they get a little competitive with each other about like who can come up with the most horrible thing and then I want to play the game and I like throwing my horrible things that I can say from looking at what the guy dressed and stuff so sometimes. I don't like to let like if I'm insulting the actor. I don't like to let them know when it's mine and when it's there's sometimes if it's too insulting on Mike that wasn't me that we're not. GonNa use uh-huh well good goals. Try to make the extra go along because I have so many questions and I don't WanNa be too inside baseball just because the show's not what about me and it should be what I'm interested in yourself but yes it should but didn't allow but we should see a clip of you so so let's see here. He is Kieran Galkin in succession season two so you're not using. That's me that's me I recognize I yeah yeah look at that your idea to just sit on the yeah. I improvised that sitting up there. How cool probably with the glove in on the water just went right up. Stay saying that it's interesting because but those of you I haven't watched it yet the PEOP- The kids in this family this whatever it is it is an empire. I guess it is all want to take daddy's place place sure what's the case. You can make for Roman don't you. I think in a way he's sort of the most like his dad. which you know. I think that a lot of times makes really quick decisions and sort of just goes with gut sometimes and can be a real Pani. Ask kind of scary and I think Roman has that thing where sometimes if you know you get his attention. He's GonNa rip any. You and it can be a little scary so I don't know. I think there's a case for him. I thank you know he's done but he's smart. I think he knows how to basically a situation to his advantage and his advantages the companies then you know hearing you have this career. I mean everybody remembers you and your brother and home alone and we see that and that was just child actor stuff but I remember you most from Igby. It goes down and I saw that movie. I love the whole movie but what you didn't it was just amazing. Well thank you seemed to disappear yeah what what thousand to two thousand and two then where is he. What did you did dropped off the map kind of did like a bit of a freak out that movie came out when I was twenty and I kind of remember there were like some projects lighting up that I was suddenly being offered offered instead of auditioning for and that was a strange thing and I can't remember who but somebody used the word career and now I have a career. I found myself like twenty. I'm doing it for like fourteen years and never once made that decision for myself and I was like I don't. I never even questioned if this is something I want to do and I kinda just looked out and I think learned that a lot of people around that age kind of freak out about what they wanna do with their lives. I was just already kind of doing it but having having that same freak out at the same time but you're living it I mean because McCauley's started it in your family right. We actually started around the same thing yeah but his his success in home alone and I think the thing with that too is when I've always said that. If you get to witness or experience fame fame like that secondhand you would never pursue it. I don't think that's a nice thing like that's not exactly a nice thing that happened to him. At the age of not not in it wasn't nice for him to walk down the street and people like chase him and stuff. That wasn't that Nice so I'm if I'm sort of figuring this out now in real time. Maybe you're my founded charge anytime. You're great but it's that. I think if I started to find if I'm fit go back now and think about it when I was twenty. I started finding myself to be a little successful in things. We're coming probably had a bit of a panic. Let's roll this back when he tried to get some control over it because I've seen it. Get completely out of control with like a child what was happening in your family. You brought that up before who was saying to all of view you should act. You should be in this well. My father was an actor before I think he actually comes from a family of actors or performers of some kind of sort of like you know glass family type thing I think him and his three siblings all did some to some extent kids and then if I'm remembering correctly and sometimes times again information wrong like the are some neighbors ran over the stage managers of the theater nearby in the neighborhood so I think it got to a point was I was like. Oh we need a kid. I show my neighbor's got seven of them name of sex and age we got take here yeah and my father then kind of pushed that he like took headshots of us in like. I think it was like Rupert Park in New York and sent us on auditions and stuff and it actually kind of happened pretty quickly. You weren't born scarred by the family experience. No I just think it's like not a good relationship with dad no not with that but not not for that reason. He wasn't a good person overall but for that that kind of stuff. I think that was okay. I think at least my experience I actually can't really talk about what the siblings I think. It's funny is growing up at the family. You seven in all seven of us have living in the same place but having very different experiences I just think mine was maybe a little less complicated for like a kid doing it and also you mentioned the movie Igby when I worked with the writer director Burr steers on that he like really he really worked with me and an almost sometimes I tell stories about how hard he was on me than it seemed kind of bullying but he was actually just really trying to help me out because I had a lot of like child actor sort of ticks and like habits that he used to tell me if I see you doing that. I'm going to call you out and I said please do. Don't don't be harsh as you can go in for the punchline undoing or just like he would say. He hated kid actors and he was like I hate when they do the light. I'm GONNA show you how I'm feeling or something he's to make fun of it a lot and whenever he would see me doing it sometimes the middle of taking yell and be like that's nickelodeon. Go back to look at things like that. Oh I didn't realize I was kid. He was kind of like it. It was like mean but it felt like it was like boot camp. It was sorta like but he took me very seriously as an actor treated me very seriously and we worked on stuff together. It was the first time because I was eighteen shop at and before that had been a kid after doing stuff and from that point on I was like Oh this is different. This isn't just stand on your mark and say you're lying who has a kid. This was like doing scene work and try to understand why you're saying stuff and then from there started doing theater and it was so all that stuff was just completely different but I'm glad glad I did the stuff as a kid because it taught me quite a few things stand on your mark and you know those people's lines because there's a comfort in that but I think what you're saying if you get too comfortable you're not doing should always be changing. I think like a kid actor and then you're an adult and boom. I think if you ever get comfortable Roland what it is that you're doing in your process than you probably lost the point of it. I think always learning from the people that you're working with. I just want to mention a couple of things that you've done of Scott Pilgrim which I think is nothing really underrated movie Fargo. Yeah I modeled on the I. I know yeah I never did and I said this has to be but I couldn't get that sort of thing they wrote. I remember when they wrote in mm script that I had a mustache when they took the job. I remember saying to them like okay. I can't really grow a moustache so I thought that meant they were going to write it out but instead they they actually just got like a wig like a fake mustache then the glue this thing on and I went oh you mean you must you can grow one of those that I could've done that right now. I'm sitting here like every other glue down unlike constantly. Doing this lever wanted to really terrible. Mustache could've done that yeah so we always have questions questions from the outside world okay to which means that collaboration. Nell says. What is your favorite one liner that your character says on succession. I'M GONNA I'm GonNa tell you one. That was my favorite. That didn't make the show okay so there was one where we're Willa. The first episode of the Second Season Willa says is like Oh if you want my opinion I think sell seems cool and they wrote me twelve or so different lines so each take got to do a different line and the one that didn't make it was she says I think Celsius Coolness Oh. It didn't realize we were taking contributions from the floor. Why don't we call the guy who waxes my see see what he thinks. How could they cut that up. The moment I finished that looked right at matthew wax see what he thinks and he just went Um sorta gathering and I started seeing shoulder shaking and those great out take show is going to be amazing all right one more. We have one more there. It is Monica are says congrats on the baby. News wants the most surprising parenting advice you've received so far. Oh my goodness the most surprising yes. That's a good question. It's you don't get much of the surprising. Everyone says it's the same thing. It's all the same. Don't kill the baby yeah like you're going to want to know the vice. They get a lot my my favorite advice. Sometimes it's like don't take anyone's advice. I love that that's kind of my favorite. I was like I already was doing that because that in our life your life so grim yet. My baby shut up. This is just a good attitude not what Roman I don't even want to think of Roman as a father but you know you're going to take gets not really hope so believe me but anyway. This is the very first time you've been on this show. I hope you're constantly instantly but this show always ends song. Okay we send in a little song. You're going to know I would do it with you if I knew it but it's just a little bit look at Brian Cox. He confront singing love. You got to cut them off right. He was going to do the whole number to me. My my goodness he did a lot. I don't need a whole song I just need. What would you want to sing to you. The only child Oh song in your head kid. My kid crowd simple. Okay Nursery Serie Ron Okay for my child my child Adamy milk milk lemonade round the corner budget's made. Are you proud of me. I really am I. Couldn't you know what nobody whether. They're in succession or anything. Anything else is ever done that. No one's all right even though I like it when there's a twist on the end gestures kid acting some once-popular. I really liked it and it's it here. Thank you thank you. I don't know what the eldest was. I don't ever make a great time to lawmaker.

Welcome to before breakfast a production of iheartradio. Good Morning. This is Laura. Welcome to the before breakfast podcast. Today's tip is about a little trick. You can use to stay motivated to achieve monthly goals. Making progress toward any goals can be challenging. That's why we're always looking for ways to be more disciplined and consistent. A few episodes ago, we talked about the ten minute trick. Whenever you're resisting doing something a workout practicing the piano writing your novel. Challenge yourself to do it for ten minutes. If you're still unhappy, you can quit. Most likely momentum. We'll take over and you'll keep going. But even if you don't ten minutes is better than nothing. Today's tip is about another little trick for making progress. This one comes from before breakfast listener Elizabeth. She writes that she wants to work out five times a week. Each month that works out to twenty to twenty five times depending on how the dates fall. So. She says she makes a phrase with the appropriate number of letters twenty to twenty five letters. Each time I work out I earn a letter toward that phrase. The month she wrote me about this tip. Her phrase was you will on this workout. That's twenty one letters. In case they're counting. Each workout brings her one letter closer to completing the phrase. As you can imagine she hates to end the month with the phrase stuck at. You will own this were. And so it gives her a little kick to keep going. So she can assign herself the next letter. I love this idea. You could come up with lots of motivational phrases in the twenty to twenty five letter range. That means that this is a perfect match for things you intend to do several times a week. Be that exercising meditating using a language APP writing in a journal. Doing morning pages or another free writing habit. Here are a few sample phrases. I am always getting stronger. The world needs this story. My mind is calm amid chaos. So come up with the phrase. Then find a way to physically give yourself a letter for each completed session. You could use those magnetic letters that kids play with on refrigerators. Each time you look at the fridge, you'll see yourself getting a little closer to phrase completion. Or write each letter on a chalkboard or whiteboard. When you complete the phrase, take a little time to savour your accomplishment. And then dream up the next phrase.

Why Ariana Grande Is a New Kind of Pop Star for Coachella

"Hey, your body and welcome to the billboard dot com. Pop. Shop a podcast. I'm Keith Caufield senior director of charts that billboard. And I'm Katie Atkinson billboards deputy editor digital happy new year. Happy new year back the first pop shop of twenty nineteen have not physically seen Katie in the flesh for week here. I am so weird still here I've been here. This whole time. Been right here. Not according to katie's publicly available Instagram. Oh, which I was I was I took a trip from LA straight to stars hollow. And Gilmore girls is totally music relevant because they had so much music in their show. Sebastian Bach was a regular character on the chace believe they were playing that Carole king music, just if you. If you. Well as always. The billboard pop. Shop podcast is your one stop shop for all things pop. Gilmore girls, Carole king, even her daughter. What does it mean? Mccarroll king's daughter. I simply forgotten. She's the one who sings it with Carol. And the theme song didn't know that not much of a Gilmore girls fan, not all things pop on Billboard's weekly charts. In addition, you can always count on a lively discussion about the latest pop. News fun chart stats and stories, new music and guest interviews with music stars. And folks from the world of pop this week on our very first show of the year. We've got news about the Coachella lineup being revealed. Justin Timberlake, the Golden Globe awards healthy, Twenty-one savage and baby cows favorite baby shark, dude. But first before we get started. If you enjoy the podcast subscribe to the show on apple podcasts or your favorite podcast provider. So you won't miss an episode. And if you want to explore more podcasts from billboard. Visit billboard dot com slash podcasts. So let's get things started with the biggest headlines over on billboard dot com. Which of course, includes the twenty nine hundred Golden Globes, they kicked off this year's award season with its broadcasts on Sunday night. Keep the watch. No. Oh, okay. Well, then I'll tell you about it. I wasn't. I wasn't in this country. I was in London still they didn't play. They don't play them on then or what time would have been like a five hour difference. So I was asleep. Yeah. I think. Okay. Okay. I'm sorry. But I I've heard about some of the, you know, popping surprise highlights. Yes. So we thought we talked about some of the key music and music adjacent wins the first being that bohemian rhapsody won best motion picture drama and Rami Malik won for best actor emotion picture drama for his portrayal of Queen frontman. Freddie. Mercury. According to the. Oscar allergists and award soothsayers follow like gold derby. And even you know, Scott Feinberg off the Hollywood reporter bohemian rhapsody winning for best motion picture drama was a surprise. I guess Rami. Malik was kind of maybe possible less of a surprise. But evidently, the movie winning like, whoa. Well, if anyone pays attention to movie critics the New York Times LA times cetera did not necessarily give glowing reviews to this movie. Most of the reviews weren't bad. It wasn't saying it was a bad movie as more that it was a really basic movie, you know, kind of paint by numbers music bio-pic. But I know people who've seen this movie multiple times like go back to the theater to see it because they were so blown away by the concert scenes and Romney's performance of Freddie, and just said what a fantastic rewatch -able movie it is. So it's like the critics might not have necessarily agree with audiences on this one and the Golden Globes typically favors, the more audience friendly things than the Oscars. So. We might not see this win best picture next month. When I say, my I feel like we won't. But I mean, I say that now and watch me my words in February. But yeah, so, but it one here and everyone was very excited, and it was not without scandal. Of course as well. Because the listed director on this movie is Bryan singer who is not the ninety press was because he was unceremoniously fired from the project about two weeks before they finished, wrapping. Right. But he is the director of the movie he wasn't even out the Golden Globes. Apparently, he reacted on his Instagram just thanking the hall reform prosecutor he posted a picture of himself in a director's chair on the set. He was there. He was there. Indeed, directing for the bulk of the film, though. Yeah. But yes, most people involved in the film sort of avoided the question after the big win, but didn't take away any shine. From the fact that the movie and Rami won the big prizes of the night. Another huge win and pop shop favourite. Of course is that shallow fr. A star is born won for best original song awarded to of course. Pop. Shop guests himself, Mark Ronson? And also lady Gaga the star of the film and the performer with Bradley Cooper. And then Andrew Wyatt, Anthony Romando. So I feel glad we'll thought this was going to happen. But it's pretty exciting that it did. And it really bodes well for them heading into Oscar nominations, which we'll get to maybe you should save save Oscar part. But yes. Oh, I think you're gonna talk about dog and Glenn Close that whole thing. No, go for it. We'll how lady Gaga was nominated for best actress in a drama and everyone for stars born, and she was up against you know, obviously for other women one of which was Glenn Close for the wife. And I think most people assume that lady Gaga had this in the bag. Maybe even Glenn Close. Maybe even Glenn Close because when she was announced as the winner, she looked gobsmack yet gave an amazing speech. Evidently Gaga was the first person out of her chair to give her a standing ovation. When she was announced Glenn Close, I stopped on her way up to the podium and said, you know, exchange pleasantries dog. Aga some someone in I don't know who wrote this said, evidently, the Globes didn't even think Glenn Close had a shot at winning because they pushed her so far back. The wife table was far the wife day was a little bit far back at the Beverly Hilton ballroom. So she had to make her way up to the stage and it took a while. But yeah, everyone was shocked that lady Gaga I didn't win because if she would win anywhere it would be at the Golden Globes because the Globes had a history of being friendly to kind of pop and rock star and massive celebrities. Yes. Yeah. You know? And and I mean, Madonna one for a Vida. So I'm like rubbing elbows, but they did they awarded her the prize for shallow. So it's like we gave you something. So come to our parties, still so yeah. Please come to the party. So but people are wondering like, wow, considering that the Golden Globes happened the day before Oscar nomination voting opened. Ooh, will end everyone. You know, a whole bunch of Ostra voters. Just saw Glenn Close gave this amazing speech. Will that be they'll revisit the wife or maybe visit it for the first time since it's not a a massive movie this year, and this could maybe give her some sort of speed and jumping some extra momentum. I mean, I'm sure Gaga still a bat. Like totally has a nomination in the bag for best actor, I hope so I I want Gaga all over those Oscars. Yeah. Continuing with our music wins. Justin Hurwitz won best original score for. I man. He also one bathroom Joel score for LA La Land and bus original song for city of stars at the two thousand seventeen Golden Globes. So he's before they love him every time he's been nominated these one. And that of course, is directed by Damian Chazelle who he's done all of his other work with he also did whiplash and that first project the Damian Chazelle did that I can remember the name of that one that one finally pop shop frequent guest glee alum Darren criss super friend of the podcast friend of the podcast. He won best performance by an actor in a limited series or motion picture. Made for television for the assassination of Johnny for sake. American crime story, and that's the end of your acceptance speech time because we've just said he just said all the word all the words, you could possibly fit into thirty seconds. I was so excited for him. Like, I've never met him before Keith has always done all the interviews that we've done with him for the pop shop. So I haven't even spoken with him. Like, I'm hogging the Darren I just I just felt personally like pumped when they announced his name. It was such a cool thing for him. You know, what an awesome thing for his career? And anyway, are there any more awards left that he can win for this was nominated the sack awards to? Oh, good question. That's the end of the month. It's the last Sunday of the month. So we'll see the blockbuster awards those two let no the answer is now and awards like best onscreen villain. Yes. Because they did change it to the film and TV awards last year. So one hundred percent could be. So, you know, Keith actually sent me a little fun. Fact, maybe Keith Keith can share this. Okay. Yeah. Well, so we were talking about shallow winning best original song. And it made me because I'm always fascinated about who gets nominated for best original song at the economy awards. And how does the Globes how does a win at the Globes kind of factor into that? Well in the last six straight years so previous to this year. The winner of the globe for best original song has gone on to be nominated for the kademi award for best song and four of those globe winners also won the Oscar. So that looks pretty good for shallow. Yes. So at least getting nominated at least getting nominated, and you know, if it does get nominated that would give lady Gaga her second career Oscar nomination following her best song nomination alongside Diane Warren for till it happens to you from the hunting ground. And of course, Gaga could have she could be a double nominee this year. Like Mary J Blige was a year ago when Mary J was nominated for best supporting actress for. Mudbound and also for best original song for bound as well. So yeah. Well, we had Mark Ronson on the pop. Shop sounds like we're going to have to ask Missa Gaga to be on the podcast if she Qassam native for Oscar Gaga if you're listening. We're here. Let's let's just talk about the fact that let's see nominations will be announced on January twenty second for the Oscars, and the telecasts will be on February twenty fourth feels like shallow is a shoe in for nomination and a very high chance for the win. Do we think God guys getting this acting nomination? Yes. Either tail. Yeah. I mean, I think though, she it's weird in some years where it seems like like last year, if you look at sort of Oscar Raji, yes, a lot of people kind of Sumed that you like time in some years some actors or actresses have kind of like the win kind of forecast for them, Wayne advance. Yeah. And Glenn Close throws a wrench into thing. But it will have to see how you know who wins at the Screen Actors Guild award. Yes. Who wins at the BAFTA or gets nominated and wins at BAFTA? And you know, sort of the progression of how kind of the tide turns right now, it looks like a Libya. Coleman has a good shot from the favourite. She wanna go. Yeah. That's the other thing you think about with Globes versus Oscars is that the Globes are able to nominate ten actresses because they do five and drama five in musical or comedy therefore ten chances to get nominated in the Oscars as much limited field. So well, we'll be paying attention to all that. And we'll bring you all the news all the Gaga awards news. Yes. The great article on on billboard dot com called it's all about shallow season. And it's all the opportunities. Shallow has to win more awards. The next three months written by former pop shop hosts facing Lipchitz, frankly, I we could be talking to Gaga on the red carpet of the Grammy awards were shallow was nominated in two of the major category. That's before the Oscars. So let's move onto the Coachella lineup which was just announced last week. We have to talk about this lineup because there's a huge pop star. Among this year's headliners, Arianna Guerande was announced as these Sunday. Liner for this year is backed weekends in Indio, California joined by childish Gambino on Friday night and a left field pick of tame Impala for Saturday nights. You know, I think it could be a huge moment for them. If it is a moment moment, it could put tame Impala into a new level. But it's very much asking them to rise to that level. Because you know, you're talking about the spot held by beyond say last year, and these huge megastars going in name actual hit by team. I can't name a hit by Tehmina Allah. But because I actually straight up did like a deep dive into their songs last week. When the news was announced because I was like do I even know attainment policies on I know a song written by Kevin Parker called perfect losing by lady Gaga. Harker obtain in Paul who's done a ton of work with a huge Popstars included. I mean, he did a lot of work on Travis Scott's blockbuster album from last year, and he's worked with a lot of people. You know, if you don't know tame Impala would that mean attainment policy set list would involve Travis Scott and lady Gaga, shake xactly? That's kind of like maybe that was the talk with the cello. Organizers like does Travis show up. Does you know whoever show up does Mark Ronson show up to the people who've worked with Kevin multiple times show up? Yeah. Who knows I I don't know. It's a weird. It's a weird booking. It is. But it kind of feels like, you know, being sandwiched by childish Gambino and Arianna Guerande. It's like here are your big names. And hopefully, you'll stick around for this thing to end they did I forget who it's going to be though, they they might do the thing where like apparently they put salon at the same time as somebody last year. A young headliner on each the headline each day doesn't necessarily mean that you are playing by yourself. There's there could be another. There could be competing stage across the lawn that you're beyond say it does mean you're playing by yourself. But if you're somebody somebody else, you might not be so it basically it's slash this year. Oh, the example. I forget who he was going up against apparently the first year the weekend played when he didn't headline. They put him. At the same time as that night's headliner and everyone kind of treated as like, oh, it's like the weekends pseudo headlining, you know, the the pop fans are going to go to that weekend set, and you know, whatever rock band or whatever played against him are going to go to that. So we'll see why not just make Salange thick the head liner maker the top. I would argue that salons and childish Gambino or kind of on par obviously challenged can't be knows had a number one billboard hot one hundred hit. But they both have had like, you know, these big major critically praised albums and have been around as long to be some sort of politicking Macintoshes in the background with tame Impala. We don't know not sure mad sign on who knows. Anyway. So a fun fun. Fact that Arianna will be the youngest ever headliner, not just female headliner youngest, ever headliner at Coachella ever. And she's obviously carrying the mega-pop mantle for the fast after beyond as incredible bay Chela set last year and lady Gaga performance the year before. Four. I think Arianna is more more overtly pop than probably any headliner. They've had gone beyond say are on a different level in terms of kind of their like their pop cultural superstardom. Yeah, Arianna is obviously a pop star. And she's obviously had probably the the biggest year of her career. But she is not at that beyond say Gaga level where you just feel like they're on like a different orbit and train after April. And they've transcended pop stardom, and they've just become this sort of entity. I know sounds really goofy. But it's kinda like, you know, when you talk about someone like, you know, Madonna or Michael Jackson. They're no longer a popstar beyond say is no longer a pop star. She is just beyond say, Arianna isn't just. Maybe she will be in the next year or two of really I think it's a really interesting book in. I think the next thing you say, I will have something to say, well, so many people saw that there was a rumored Kotel align up that came out a few months ago that had challenged Gambino as one of the headliners. But then it also included Connie west and Justin Timberlake, both of whom are nowhere to be found on this lineup that came out last week. So the word on all of those kind of shifts is that kaanai his negotiations allegedly reportedly fell through due to the limitations of the stage design he wanted he always over the crowd. Exactly, he always wants to go big with his big weird with his stages, and for whatever reason, maybe just timing, and whatever Coachella wasn't able to comment when he wanted to do this new albums begin weird begging weird. And then Justin when I I saw that he was rumored, then all the vocal cord news broke about how he was having to cancel all these shows. The man of the woods tour and turns out apparently rescheduling the man of the woods toured ended up being the thing that kept him from Coachella because all these rescheduled dates some of which are in southern California now run into Coachella like non non compete clause. They have a whole there's a circle drawn around Coachella and an artist cannot perform within that circle within a certain timeframe before and after Coachella because they want it to be a big draw for that artist to be in that region at that festival. So Justin has rescheduled show that is somewhere within that circle within that time. Exactly. So you kind of look at it. If you're just kind of like looking at what got replaced where what it's like, Arianna took the pop slot from JT when he was able to do it and tame Impala took the weird slut. Lynn, I wasn't able to do it just Connie and our NS still sheriff scooter Braun as their mentor. I know Arianna still has scooter does Connie still have scooter. Let's pretend that he is. Okay. Then you know, maybe that could have been the scooter slot to the scooter slide or like maybe in there. Maybe like Hani like that would've been interesting. Yeah. I that wouldn't be that weird. I think at some point maybe not this time. It's so weird. How Coachella has just evolved so much over the years in terms of the the artists they book as their headline. So is telling I was giving the history to my brother-in-law the other day who was kind of like asking over. No, he just ask. If it was weird the Arianna was there. And I was like honestly the big the big breakthrough in that front. I think would be and I'm going to maybe get the year. I think it was two thousand seven was when Jay z was a headliner. That was the first time a there'd be a hip hop, headlined wise was just like rock rock rock rock all rock. I mean the last year that I went to the last full weekend that I went to was two thousand six and that was like tool and muse or something, you know, what I mean like, that's what everything was then. And so Jay Z was the first kind of breakthrough headliner and people lost their minds. Then Konya did I think the year after that or I'm not sure if you had line I or was like a second tier person I, but you know, toward the top of the lineup. And then it was just kind of like, I think Gaga kind of opened the pop floodgates beyond. Say was booked initially in Gaga took her spot. So it's like beyond say being booked opened the door, and then Gaga was the first at anyway, the beyond say being booked than having to bail lady Gaga step in and replace her really and probably Coachella seen the audience reaction and seeing the ticket sales and seeing positive vibes from that made them think. Okay. Well, maybe we can tip our toes a little bit deeper into the pop flight field. Exact does not necessarily mean that every pop star is an automatic. Like, I don't think like necessarily like Shawn Mendez would be appropriate for Coachella yet rights, but I could see them booking him Lord on the bills right now. Maybe. Yeah. But I, but yeah. Not a headliner. Yeah. It's just it's just it's such a weird kind of. It's just a it's just a m. And that's why there's so many festivals Coachella has a very specific kind of. Lean bent taste maker thing going on. Yes. Yeah. Any talk about Coachella forever. Well, and speaking of Justin Timberlake, we mentioned his vocal cord issues while he has now returned to his man of the woods tour. He is back on stage. And he returned Friday night. He posted Instagram on Sunday that said feels good to be back, and that was in DC and nine to wait. Let's see oh, he didn't play for two months. He was on a two month hiatus from performing due to bruise vocal chords. The man of the woods tour rebooted on Friday night in DC and continued Sunday night with a gig at the PNC arena in Raleigh, North Carolina. It was initially delayed in late October when Timberlake cancel a show at Madison Square Garden, New York explaining that his vocal cords were quote, unquote, severely bruised and saying I'm gonna make this up to you other postponements followed and JT share and update in early December noting that he was on the mend and the doctors are recommended to hold off on singing until January here. We are. He's back. So you're gonna go see him again. Obviously, you know, what I haven't seen man of the woods store yet. So I see him again for the first time. Yeah. Just realize I'm missing parts of my notes. Well, here take my notes then. Yeah. Page after that. No. You don't know this? Luckily, this is still you. Nope. It's you now I was gonna go into that. Oh, it's okay. She's jeez. Louise, I'm not prepared. All right. Well, let's hit three of the biggest headlines on the charts. I up we've got a new number one on the billboard hot one hundred songs chart as Halsey without me, climbs two to one. It's your first number one as a lead artist and her second chart topper overall following her feature turn on the chain smokers closer, which spent oh, you know, just twelve weeks at number one back in two thousand sixteen fun fact for Justin Timberlake superfan Katie halls. He's number one brings Timberlake to the top as well. Correct. That's a songwriter. Yes. Without me interprets timberlake's Crimea river, which was covert, by Timberlake, of course, in total. This is timberlake's six number one as a songwriter and all of his previous leaders as a writer were with songs that he also performed timberlands up there too. Yes, I was focusing on Timberlake. I was supposed to was focusing on the timber that you care. One Tim, but a time. Yeah. Come on next up. The holidays are over with on the charts. And I'm very sad about that. Because I could just sort of roll around and Christmas for awhile. As the latest streaming and sales charting weeks were the first full weeks that captured post Christmas activities so the more than twenty holiday songs that were on the hot one hundred week ago have all packed away their decorations and have run back up to the attic. So to speak. Until next October November whenever you start decorating and then over on the billboard two hundred albums chart where there had been dozens of Christmas albums on the chart. There are just too holiday sets left standing on the entire two hundred position tally now Katie had to give me all of her copies of the paper. So she hasn't. She doesn't have this can you guess what to albums two Christmas albums are left on the chart this while I know Mariah fell off the hot one hundred but is an album still up there yet merry Christmas still on the chart, and then I dunno pentatonic always hanging around boob lay boob lays Christmas. They're both still on the chart. I mean at the very lower down on the course, and obviously they will collapse. But I think that shows you kind of the staying power of Mugabe Mariah and those those songs from those albums, even you know in the days after Christmas. So people probably were still playing Christmas music on the twenty seven twenty eight twenty nine clean up to New Year's know as they were getting out of getting out of the Christmas vibe. And the only the. Songs that showed the most, you know, kind of stick around nece were Mariah and Michael always to Michael and Maria. Oh my God. If they did a duets Christmas album the entire universe would fall in on itself. Oh, yeah. On well, intern because holiday stuff flies off of the hot one hundred and the billboard two hundred both of those charts are flush with lots of movement as many songs and albums reenter. The chart thanks to the departing holiday titles and a lot of tunes and albums move up the chart too. Because now there's a lot of space, you know, freed up. So you know, when you look at our charts this week and everything looks really super wackadoo told that's why so one of the songs that takes the place of the holiday tunes on the hot one hundred is babies shark. The gone viral children's song by the South Korean educational brand pink Fong, debuts number thirty two on the chart. Thanks largely to streaming activity. Now, the song probably would have debuted a couple of weeks ago on the hot one hundred had it not been for all the holiday titles clogging up the works on the chart. So you know, I mean. Things that it had to break into the top forty or it could've it could've been like number ninety. If it was a good question. Okay. I wondered just because of the number thirty two. Yeah. You check check our story on this billboard dot com for that answer. Don't quote me right now, there may be something to that. But I'm not quite sure. Okay. I'm but for like holiday titles, like, for example, like old titles, and this may have affected this. But check again check our story for older Holly titles like, you know, Mariah Carey element for Christmas. Is you you have to have enough points to reenter the top fifty down. So the tar otherwise we'll just have a whole bunch of old crap on the chart forever. And then it wouldn't really reflect what's new and hot. Yeah. I'm we have to have rule somehow exactly over on the billboard two hundred albums chart. Three albums actually returned to the top ten post Malone's gearbox. Bentley's climbs eleven to four Spiderman into the spider soundtrack web slings thirteen to five and Drake's score. Fiene rises fourteen to six in all three of those are taking the place of a holiday albums that were in the top ten week ago. Mariah Carey's my Christmas NAT king Cole Christmas song. And then there was some other Christmas album in the top ten play. Probably yet. I think was probably in the top ten boob way. Lastly while we're still talking about the billboard two hundred. We've yet to mention what's number one. Oh, yeah. Yeah. It's actually rapper Twenty-one savages. I am greater than I was and the greater that is actually the greater than symbol just to make it remember that for math class, of course, which holds atop the tally for a second week debuted at number one a week ago. It leads a hip hop heavy chart as the entire top seven on the billboard two hundred are rap titles for only the second time ever in the charts history while it lasts happened back in August when the entire eight top eight top eight. We're rap efforts. Just eight pick any it. You want? It's the magic of streaming for you wrap can really do number on the charts. Thanks to streaming. And now it's time for the charts said of the week. Though in reviewing the incidence of my administration. I am unconscious of intentional err on nevertheless to sensible of my defects. Not to think it probable that. I may have committed many errors while we were gone on holiday break. Well holiday break from the podcast holiday break from worth. I was working the entire time. There was some pretty big chart news. Former President Barack Obama decided to drop a single on us. And you know, what it actually charted one last time the forty four remix by Christopher Jackson, Barack Obama and BB Winans crazy debuted at number twenty two on the hot Rb songs. Chart dated January fifth. The song is actually a reworking of the track. One last time as a regionally heard in the Broadway show Hamilton an American musical in the revised track Jackson sings while Obama recites a passage from President George Washington's farewell address. Yes. So the song like the core the song is still there. But they kind of like refashioned it and kind of did new music around it for this new version that has now President Obama doing the Washington part. So, you know, it's interesting that you have an actual president citing our first president's farewell address. Yes. In a show that is all about American history on as just magical. Obama and Hamilton. Of course, go way back in two thousand nine the show's creator Lin Manuel. Miranda performed the song Alexander Hamilton at the White House during the Obama administration. Miranda leader wrote the musical Hamilton, which premiered off Broadway in two thousand fifteen and went on to become a cultural phenomenon spawning a smash cast album that it's still on the billboard two hundred chart this week and winning multiple Tony awards Pulitzer prize and a Grammy award among other accolades, the cast of Hamilton returned to the White House in two thousand seventeen to perform one last time with Jackson and Miranda as a farewell to Obama. So Obama now makes it a full circle moment. Joining one last time, so you have it President Barack Obama minted himself a hit on the hot Rb songs chart. Thanks to his turn on the new remix of one last time. And will not press release came in. I was like what? Oh bomb. What's how how how many people can say like? Yeah, featuring. Yeah. Like, I've got a collaboration with Obama who's gonna who's gonna lineup. Donald Trump for their song so many options so many options I'm waiting for like on the shell Obama like feature. Oh, I definitely happen. I mean, she she kind of had one with that. This one's for the girls. Oh, that's right. She that. She she was like involved. Yeah. She didn't have a proper credit on it, which sort of you know, frustrated me too because I really wanted to see your name on the charts. Right. But anyway, I could fall into a hole about, you know, seeing the Obamas on Detroit's seemed frankly presidents on the charts because that's not something. That's very common. No like, there was a whole bunch of John F Kennedy. Albums that charted on the Bill were two hundred following his death. Like a lot of ten member to albums the day. He died probably things in that had audio of his speeches. But it was presidents have won Grammys before is Raleigh. A brock. Obama has has one one or two Grammys Bill Clinton has won a Grammy. Hillary Hillary Clinton who is not a president, obviously has won a Grammy. Onto me Carter's won a Grammy. Trump has not there's still time. You never know. There's it's there's still possibilities. Okay. Any partying words Katie for our first show back in the brand spanking new year. I feel we should go out with the Michelle Obama produced. This one's for the girls. Why?

"Thanks to linked in for supporting this episode of market foolery find the right people for your business. This year at Lincoln dot com slash fool and get fifty dollars off your first job post. That's Lincoln dot com slash fool. Terms and conditions apply. It's Monday, January seventh. Welcome. Chris hill. Joining me in studio today set Jason in the house. Terms and conditions apply to that too. I think that's fair to say with any unless you shows up. It's definitely with you. We're going to get to the Golden Globes because there are some, you know, there is some relevant investing stuff coming out of that red carpet. Psyched. We should we have a red carpet here for the show. No, we absolutely should not quick thing. Because last Thursday on the show, I mentioned in the wake of the Bristol Myers Squibb deal in college by with cell, gene. Just a cozy seventy four billion dollars. Thirty five sticks in my head only seventy four only seventy four billion. But I was I was talking to Shannon Jones who hosts are the healthcare episode of industry focus on Wednesdays. And I can't remember if I mentioned this on the show last Thursday or not, but I remember in the conversation with her and one of the things she said was, you know, more deals are coming and in particular with on college and cut to the small. We're only lie lily sixty eight percent premium or something for for Laakso on college. Yeah. An eight billion dollar deal. So yes, if you're a shareholder of luck. So on college you're having a good day, and I wouldn't have been. So before we get to my question for you. Just a reminder. That's one more reason you wanna listen to industry focus for insights like that from Shannon Johns. The J P Morgan healthcare conference is is going on this week so presume announced right? It was announced their presumably more details on the deal coming later this week healthcare such a huge industry. Is it one that you invest in? And if so how granular do you get because for me it kind of stops with Johnson and Johnson? Yeah, it's tough. I've given up trying to invest in in the what was it oxo, Laakso luck? So the Laakso Oncology's the world because I don't know enough to have any sort of edge there. And remember, you're edging. Investing is pretty thin anyway, in terms of knowledge, you're almost never going to have a knowledge at you may be able to have a temperament edge. I think that's very important edge. But in terms of trying to pick companies who have drugs that are going to do well, or or have technology to make those drugs, and then all company would be acquired another words some of these aren't about so much getting just a drug there about. Getting the team of people that created the drug and so forth. I don't do it. I'm no good at it. There are people out there who are good at it. I'm not one of them. I do invest in healthcare companies at tend to go for something more, like an am and staffing or somebody selling picks and shovels to the hospitals healthcare services, someone doing laundry, and and food service at healthcare centers hospitals, and so on a little easier for me to figure out what's going on. And I just feel like there, I can have some kind of an edgy. At least I can know what's going on two Golden Globe awards were last nights. And I don't know if they timed it this way, but it certainly is working out well for Roku because Roku this morning released. Preliminary data for its fourth quarter results. And the viewership numbers are better than expected and shares of Roku up twenty percent this morning, Tony. Well, that's good for me your shareholder. Oh, yeah. Okay. I've been for a while. I've been I've been a big fan of Roku. For a few months. Now, certainly today. I understand why you're fan today. Yeah. I might actually be in the positive on that one Roku is probably still almost down by half from its all time high just a few months ago, I'm guessing if it's in the thirty eight dollars or thirty five dollar range and think we were up in the sixties at one point. I didn't buy it there. But yeah, it is very interesting. Netflix was a big winner at the awards, right? And I saw article saying, hey, does this mean that things are great for their development strategy? I don't know that it does. I tend to look at the winner in this in this entire cord cutting movement as Roku, and I don't mean that Roku is going to put that looks out of businesses something like that. I mean, if you're looking for a company that stands to benefit from all the competition net. Flicks. Isn't it right because the competition is coming four net flicks. That flex may continue to do fine. But it's going to be it's going to have a big battle on its hands. Right. Roku is sort of the what's the word of the Switzerland of of online streaming right or they're agnostic. They have abs- for just about every service out there, and they are becoming kind of the default operating system for smart TV's and devices. Right. I mean, I my smart TV in my basement. Actually, I've got one what happens on smart TV's after a while if it's a proprietary smart TV, and this was a Samsung, so pretty big brand Netflix and others just quit making an update the apps for the smart TV. So they they only want update their Roku app, right or maybe they're Android app. So with Roku, you get all of that. And in Roku also sells advertising on its own channel. They also have a payments platform. So you can pay for stuff that you're watching on these other services through Roku? They could take cuts of that Roku is growing very quickly. And I think it's a really interesting investment. Because of that they may be the ultimate winner in the. Cutting battle because they're sort of one of it and the leading if probably the leading platform in that space. What's so it's interesting when you look at Netflix shares this morning up about five percent Amazon up a couple of percentage points. I mean, they were both winners at the Golden Globes. Just makes me laugh so much. I do people really care about quality. And if we call the Golden Globes of word winters quality. I mean, this is this is what's crazy. I had not heard of any of these net. Flicks winners, and I've watched net flicks Fairmount like, how do they not bobble this up to me? It is interesting because they you look at and we've seen this trend really for the last decade where the Golden Globes you've got television awards and. Sort of movie awards as well, particularly with the television awards. We've just seen this very steady trend of broadcast television just dropping when it comes to the awards, and whether it's net flicks HBO, Amazon, Hulu is even cutting some award nominations and wins here and there. It's really pretty surprising. Yeah. Yeah. It isn't. It isn't. I mean, if you. It's not all that simple. Kind of going for. What they what you might qualify for this a loaded term at a lowest common denominator sort of. I mean, they network television. I think still has I feel like when I see the show is the mindset is like pie in the face that my seventy year old uncle would have laughed at when he was fifty. You know what I mean? That's that's just what I see from a lot of network television. And Netflix good for them decided we're going to do some stuff. That's you know, originally, it was stuff that had been rejected by the main studios. Right. A lot of interesting stuff out there. The problem is, of course for Netflix. Is that in order to be as big as they are. They have to pretty much say yes to almost everything right now. So as a result, you know, they're sending me add they sent me an Email to try to get me to watch Sabrina. The teenage witch sorta got an Email like I don't get emails from anything and they sent like season of Sabrina. I don't know that you're the demo for that. No. And it was also it was kind of creepy, but like a low Lita kind of picture she was sprawled out this like young girl. Will you remember from madman? When she was little like I felt grossed out by it. So I don't I I don't understand about what I do get from Netflix. These are so much original material. Some of it is amazing like the lemony snippets series on there. Just incredible Neil Patrick Harris doing a great job. And then there's a lot of stuff. It's really not very good. I don't think so they have done so much. And then you've got others coming in apparently, WalMart voodoo might be doing original programming got Amazon doing some original programming. Some of it pretty good. But I mean, you've got some real problems if your net flex if you've got, you know, Disney coming out with their service. You got DC doing their own service, DC comics, you've got if I can read my tiny writing Time Warner doing one you've got Facebook watch coming out with some original programming. I'm not sure what that will be apple is doing something, which primarily is Reese Witherspoon, an Oprah at this point, which seems kind of a narrow demographic to me. But I suppose they know what they're doing. So there's a lot of comp. Petition. And that's why to circle back to Roku think that by going with a platform that is agnostic and stands to carry all of these services to every TV I think he probably have a very interesting opportunity there. Well, and if you just think about the basic business model of broadcast television, we'll put basic cable aside for the moment. But just the the model. The reason a company like net flex is. So attractive to show runners is because if you're doing a deal with CBS ABC NBC, FOX, you're in for they're saying, look, we're going to give you we're probably going to give you more money than net flicks. But in return for that, we're going to need twenty two episodes. We're going to you know, you're going to have to go on this schedule. Whereas Netflix, and obviously Amazon prime Hulu and others. They're not laying out as much cash per show, necessarily, but the amount of freedom. And the fact that it's like, oh you want to do ten episode. You want to do eight episodes. That's fine. Yeah. We can we can find a price that works. Whereas if broadcast television is never going to find a good price for an eight episode more on the Golden Globes in just a second.

And as mentioned at the top of the show, terms and conditions apply. Three quick things from the Golden Globes. One at one point when I think it was when the marvelous MRs Mazel won an award. Amazon had won an award. And whoever was doing the thanking stage was named checking a lot of people and one of the people was Jeff Jeff, and they cut the Jeff as through sitting there watching, and I'm just not I don't know what really ward a one one name name. I don't know why I find it amusing that the wealthiest person on the planet is just named checked by first name only. But I do find it too. Carol Burnett getting you didn't watch I watched them. I if I had known Carol Burnett would be on might have watched one of the funniest people in history. Yes. And an award was created in her name. So she was the first winner of set award for for television achievement. And I'm sure for a lot of people who either watch the awards or just reading the news coverage and scratching their heads. And wondering like well, who, oh, I think I know who she was an absolute groundbreaking performer. First woman to ever host a variety show. Not only her own stuff was funny, but still an amazing job with that show bringing in that cast with all of the other people Cormon, Tim Conway, people Lawrence vacate hilarious, and in the same way that we talk about you know, businesses that have great CEO's and one of the things we like to see is they've surrounded themselves with great executive talent. That's basically what Carol Burnett did with her show. She was not one of these people's like all I need to get all the laughs. She knew that. If people were laughing at anyone on her show, they were laughing at her show. Yeah. The WalMart commercial. And I sent you the YouTube clip clip for this. Walmart had an ad and I'll put this out on the market flurry Twitter feed. We'll all have to watch it. Because somehow, I didn't do I didn't do my homework. But I know the gist. It was it was so the the purpose of the ad was to get across that WalMart is doing more and more to help customers get their stuff some of that involves delivery. But some of that involves pickup and the way people really seem to like to do order on the app and pick it up. I guess that's because you know, when you're getting it right and just drive by and pick it up and what they did for this commercial to demonstrate how easy it is to pick up stuff at WalMart. Is they had all of these icon ick vehicles from television and movies. They had the batmobile they had doc Brown's DeLorean from back to the future kit the talking car, which only geezers like you and me remember from Knight Bumblebee from transformers, and it was fantastic. Although when I was telling you about the ad, what was your reaction, while we know there are some portent cars don't seem to be there. Christine where was Christine Christie had the same reaction to one of the Email one of the news emails. I get from the Wall Street Journal same sort of thing they were like where was Christine for those unfamiliar Christine. The the nine hundred fifty eight Plymouth fury murderer possessed by. Possessed by hell or something and not surprising that it was a Stephen King novel turned into a movie. But yeah, well, where was Christine do they have TD Bank? They did not they had the adverts car from like cannonball run. No, they had the the pumpkin from the turns into the carriage from Cinderella. They're going mass market will. Yeah. The more seventies those like convoy kind of thinks well, look along with the murdering Klamath they had kit the talking car and. Yeah, I think I think probably just as well that you and I were not in on the decision making next insert WalMart, give us a call. We've got notes got notes. You think how that meeting goes down? They show us the commercial if we're grain lining this like, look, I love the direction, but if you could just add a vehicle that actually murders. People think it'll be better right in front of the store right at the end that would be great for for walk in traffic. Yeah. Nobody wants our notes. Nobody wants not on that such as thanks for being here as always people on the program may have interest in the stocks. They talk about in the motley fool me have formal recommendations for or against Saddam. Buyer sells stocks and based solely on what you hear. That's going to do it for this edition of market for the show is mixed by Dan void. I'm chris. Thanks for listening. We'll see you tomorrow.
