"On our dot com. Okay. Who's who? I think I'm a queue. I think it's safe to say you're cruising. I mean, I do. And I don't know whether I'm happy or sad about that, but you want to be Macquarie? No, no, no, no. I think I am I'm ready to take on the. Who has a more maniacal smile left? Near you. I don't think either of us wants the answer to that question. I think there are going to be a lot of people in our Twitter comments letting us know. So that's at Sean fantasy. Okay. Leave me out of it. I broke these down by tears. Yeah. All these films. I listed 25 films. Now, a couple of caveats, me personally, I have not seen a handful of these movies. I've not yet seen Babylon have not yet seen avatar the way of water. You haven't seen either of those yet. That might be it for me in terms of movies I haven't had a chance to see, I think. I know there's a couple more on your list that you haven't seen, but not many. Not many. I have not seen bardo. Okay. I have not seen empire of light. You haven't seen Emancipation, have you? And I haven't seen him in space. No, I will see you tomorrow. Yes. Oh, okay, well. Boom. Why don't you? Why don't you send an invite? Because I didn't set up the screening. Okay, well, sometimes whatever. Great podcast. Yes. Let's talk about our screening dates. And then, well, what else are we going to talk about until March? Okay? March 12th. That's the other thing. You asked how I'm feeling about the Oscars, and I'm feeling like, let's keep it moving. Can I be honest? I feel like I exercised extraordinary restraint by waiting to do this until December 1st. Okay. Did I not? Yes. Thank you. Congratulations. Let's keep it moving. Okay. And I have an eye still have not seen living. Oh yeah. I received a screener of that film, so I will bring it to your home. Okay, great. Thank you. And this is like the big oversight because I was really trying to go see in a theater on a big screen. I never did. Well, they never saw them. Yeah, but there have been various kind of awards like screenings because there is a campaign for it. And I would like to have that experience if I can. Maybe we can go together. Okay, 'cause that was sort of during the intense baby phase for me. That's right. I gotta catch up. It's been about 6 months since I talked about that show, that film on this show. I'm dubious that it's gonna be able to make the push that it's trying to make. It's cool that they're doing that. You know, if Top Gun: Maverick wasn't around this year, I weirdly think it would have had a better chance in that sort of spectacle spot. And who knows what's going to happen with Avatar, but nevertheless, let me just share what I do you think these tears are reasonable the way I've got this broken down. Yeah, for the most part. If you want to slot in something higher up, of course you can do that.

Fresh update on "oscars" discussed on AJ Benza: Fame is a Bitch
"That same year we walked out of movie theater. It was cheering for a boxer named rocky Balboa, which incidentally that movie came out 44 years ago. Yesterday. And I recently bought a T-shirt that says 44 years of rocky Balboa. I got chills when I saw it was available. And I love that shirt because of rocky and the fact that, of course, the fact that I was in that franchise, but also because 44 was my number in high school and soccer and basketball. And now, Sylvester Stallone is still making movies that have him as the hero. He has an abandoned that true blue formula of America first. I imagine his life is a lot like it was after rocky premier than swept the country and went to the Oscars, but to see Bruce Jenner now as Caitlyn Jenner and throwing axes was too comedians on a dumb Netflix show. I don't know. It was more fucking disappointing than I thought it would be. There weren't too big or male stars, male heroes in 1976, then Bruce Jenner and Sylvester Stallone, and like I said, sly still going strong. I don't know what Caitlin is going for. But we're not supposed to question that. We're not supposed to wonder why. We're only supposed to be okay with the fact that she's living her best life. And I agree with that. I don't want anybody to be unhappy in their skin. But are we allowed to long for the days when she was Bruce Jenner? And she was sticking it up Russia's ass? Can we at least all agree that that was a glorious time? And a time when America was getting tested by another world power and we answered the call with men like Bruce Jenner. It's gotten to the point, as you know, when showing your patriotism is considered not nice, it's considered rude, I'm sorry, I'm an American. I can show my love for my country as much as I want. And if that means painting of fire hydrant, red, white, and blue and not was a Muslim Crescent. Well, sorry, you can fucking arrest me and take me to jail. And that's not as crazy as you think. But I wish I could start a movement again for people who want to paint fire hydrants to colors of our flag.
How Emilio Esteves Helped Jon Bon Jovi Get His Oscar Nomination
"Also, close personal friend of Bon Jovi, you were in his music videos, he was in young guns, et cetera that's right. How did that happen? So I was a fan of that song that he wrote called wanted dead or alive, and we listened to it during the first young guns. And Ali sheet is like patient zero. She was friendly with. And me too, from USC theater. She's the she was friends with John and Richie sambora, and she introduced John and I and John says, hey man, you know, I love young guns one. Can I be involved with youngsters? I said, you know, once you come out to New Mexico and we'll throw in cameo, he shows up in the middle of shooting and he says, hey, I wrote a song. I'd love to play it for you. And I said, oh my God, whatever. Sure. Yeah. How good could it be? Can I play it for you now? And he had it written on a piece of lined. Paper and he's sat down and played in the car and it was blazing glory. Wow. And I had the day off. And I said, get in the car. We drove to set. I said, there's the director and producers go in there and play it for them. And he did. And he was nominated for an Oscar. I think he won the Golden Globe for the song. And an entire album was born out of that experience. So yeah, he and I have been friends for a while, and it was I think that was his first solo album, was it?
Eric Welcomes 'The Promise Code' Author O.S. Hawkins to the Show
"OS Hawkins, welcome back. Good to see you. Thank you. Joy to be with you. You know, when your name is what my name is, you have to go by initials. You know, for my Jewish friends, they say, what's OS stand for? And I say Oscar Schindler. To my Arab Friends, they say, I say Omar Sharif. But the truth is their old family names, and so I consequently just go by initials OS. And they're so unpleasant. You won't even share them with my smile. Now you know. What is it? Swafford. Swafford. Swafford. Not spafford, swafford. Squawk. I wish you watched. I've heard I could have a claim to fame. Right. Right. My gosh. Well, listen, there's always so much I want to talk to you about, but I want to be real clear. You have a new book out called the promise code 40 Bible promises. Every believer should claim. Now, if you don't live in Dallas, there are many people listening to this program right now. They don't even get that idea of what do you mean Bible promises I should claim. Where do you get the idea that there are these things in the Bible that I can claim? What is that whole idea of claiming a Bible promise? How is it even biblical to claim a Bible promise? I think it is, but I would love you. You're the theologian. I would love you to just explain that to our audience. Well, Eric, there was a perversion about naming it and claiming it several years ago in the Christian faith. In other words, if I see a big new automobile I just name it and claim it. God, I'm a claim that you give it to me. That is just perverted biblical truth. Is anything could be. What we talk about when we talk about claiming a Bible verse, Adrian Rogers used to say when God names it, you can claim it. For example, the Bible promises whoever believes on the name of the lord Jesus Christ shall be saved.

The Big Lie That Was Sacheen Littlefeather at the 1973 Oscars
"I didn't really heard too much about sashi little feather for years after that. But now her sister is really doubling down and exposing her sister her older sister for the bald liar she was and would go on to become and I'll tell you that story a couple of seconds. So rosalyn Cruz has been on a campaign since her sister passed away recently from breast cancer because it turns out such gene little feather was just an alter ego. Rosalyn was 15 years old at the time and couldn't believe what she saw on a TV set, just like we couldn't. She gawked and disbelief from their grandparents home in a very rural plot of California called Salinas. As this sasheen little feather, who she knew to be her 26 year old sibling, Marie Louise Cruz, perform what would become the most pivotal 75 seconds of her entire acting career. And now it's been a few weeks since the woman known as sasheen died a lot of better identity, and she died from breast cancer, not too long ago, a younger sister is just blowing the whistle on all her bullshit. And there are some really weird stories on who this woman really was and where she came from. So Rosalind couldn't wait to uncover all this stuff. And she went on a bit of a tear calling reporters and making the scene a different functions, what have you, and she felt the time is right now that her sister's dead, to really tell people the truth and who's sajin little federal really was. Because basically, she said that that whole stunt mortified her family. Because before a system of re left for the Academy Awards that night, she told the whole family, just watched the show. I can't tell you anything more, but just watch. And, you know, a few years earlier, the sister had started her acting career at the American conservatory theater in San Francisco, but still couldn't make a name for herself in Hollywood. So she cooked up something really crazy. So when they saw Marie identify herself as Apache, their grandparents, everybody's blown away. They'll never forget how they just stand at each other. Absolutely dumbstruck. And that moment marked the first time that her eldest sister claimed she was part of a tribe.

Dasha Burns: Fetterman Campaign Claims Victory in Debate Exchanges
"If John fetterman had an R behind his name, all you'd be hearing right now is the absolute catastrophe of a debate last night. Now, remember dasha burns the NBC reporter who a couple of weeks ago, dared to point out that fetterman has some major problems communicating and understanding communications? A fellow reporters went after her. Oh, he does just fine. He's fine. And nothing wrong with him. How dare you, dasha burns? Well, they got to her.

And Savannah is speaking to media after the debate, the fetterman spokesperson said the campaign was thrilled with his performance saying he won, quote, countless, exchanges against Oz, and we asked the Oscars.

AJ on Harvey Weinstein and 'Good Will Hunting'
"I registered today that reminded me of the very wicked wicked ways of Harvey Weinstein. But this time he was screwing a guy. Now not the way you think. You got to go back to the days and 1997 when the smash hit, good will hunting was out in theaters, they spent 10 million to make that movie with Ben Affleck and Matt Damon and it ended up earning 225 million at the box office, one couple of Oscars, Matt and Ben got the screen playwriting award and Robin and Williams got best supporting actor, but there was some bullshit that occurred. You know, years ago I told you the story where Harvey paid Matt and Ben has started amount of money. No one expected this movie to blow up like this. All different types of screenwriters to punch up the script. In fact, word is the original script didn't even have a love interest that was played by Minnie Driver. There was some other things in the script that just in the initial script that Matt and Ben wrote that were not there. And Harvey had to do considerable amount of work finding script doctors to punch it up and he did. So when the movie time started to make a ton of money, Matt and Ben were very grateful, but there's a famous story that he told me where they said, you know, we really feel like we didn't get paid enough. I mean, in hindsight, they're right, but shit, the guy gave them their starts and they won an Oscar, but they still cried about, you know, we only got a certain amount and now the movie is over a 150 mil. And Harvey, it was in a hotel. He met them in a hotel, and I'm sorry, they called him. They had a meeting. They told him to man. And so I think about it. But he was pissed off. And then they kept hounding him. And he said, where the fuck are you guys? And they tell them what I'll tell they were at. I should stay put. And about two hours later, Harvey had a $1 million in a hefty bed, a garbage bag. And he threw it at them on the bed. And he said, I don't ask you another fucking thing. I'll kill you. I'm kidding, but I'm not. Now, then in that work, considerably happy back then to get a quick extra mill on top of whatever they got paid. I guess that shut them up, but that's one side of Weinstein. But on the same, the very same film. Kevin Smith, the director, was telling a story. That Weinstein actually pulled the movie from the fears early because he wanted to fuck around with Robin Williams Korea. Now, generally you hear him, you hear these stories about Harvey being this play with women. I've never heard much about him doing this sort of thing to a man.
David Schweikert: Biden Has Weaponized Every Level of the Government
"You know that the problem I have with this again being a former federal agent myself I mean I did this exact job description GS 1811 federal investigator It's a different agency but it's the same description but the issue I have with it is there's an opportunity cost to this stuff You know when the FBI spends a lot of its time you know investigating pro lifers On January 6 people some of who were just there at the rally and had nothing to do with any of the illegal behavior And then spends a bunch of time you know four years investigating Donald Trump congressman there's a cost to the foregone opportunity You know miss terrorists you know drugs at the border There's a cost to this It's just not free Well look I do mostly taxes I'm a ways and means God I'm a senior Republican over social security So I do Medicare financing I do taxes I do trade I do the geeky stuff I'm really good at math I'm not necessarily good at screaming at people And well I am So there you go We're a perfect match This is like Oscar and Felix I'm sorry go ahead I didn't mean to interrupt you Yeah In some ways we are the odd couple Think about what's going on and in some ways this goes back to the first day of the Obama administration It was the weaponization of every level of government So you had fun from it works as a park service Well it turns out that person used to be a political appointee and the Obama administration was so brilliant It took all these tens of thousands of political folks and converted them into covered employees So you can't fire them And now we're sitting here a decade later and you're wondering why the Trump administration had so much battle to get the littlest thing done or why every time you turn there's another Republican getting investigated They're getting brutalized
"oscars" Discussed on Pop Culture Happy Hour
"Yeah, I mean, it's not my favorite song, but I thought the production of that number was great. She was performing a tennis court in Compton. She was decked in all, it was a green, yellow, it was like a neon colors, all the dancers and the performers and it was fun. I appreciated it. And it was definitely a highlight. And like you said, Stephen, maybe you shouldn't have started with that. Maybe she would have that. Somewhere a little bit later in the evening for people to get more happy. We have not really talked too much about the hosts. This show was hosted by Regina hall Amy Schumer and Wanda Sykes who kind of came out together and then were often presented separately over the course of the night to kind of spread things around. What did you guys think? I liked some of the jokes. They're not necessarily every actual dig they made at people. But there was a joke in there about Leonardo DiCaprio. And I mean, Leonardo DiCaprio, what can I even say about him? He's done so much to fight climate change and leave behind a cleaner greener planet for his girlfriends. So that refers to, you know, him dating a lot of women who are a lot younger than he is. And it reminded me a lot of the Amy Poehler and Tina Fey joke at the Golden Globes a few years ago about George Clooney in gravity demonstrating that he would rather float off into space than spend time with a woman his own age. Those kinds of jokes to me are pokey, but they're not like super mean and they hit kind of the sweet spot for me. There were a couple of references to things like watching power of the dog three times and being almost through it. I did think some of the jokes were funny again. It's hard to sort of put it in perspective because it all got so overshadowed by the direction of the evening. Yeah, look, these three performers are pros. They are natural hosts. They just all felt very comfortable in their skin up there in a way that I think other hosts might want to kind of rush through, which might be one reason. Why? The evening seemed kind of unhurried just in general. Oh God. Yes, for all the time they tried to save by editing in the production categories. They didn't include in the live broadcast. This show is still clocked in at almost four hours. You had to get 28 years of Pulp Fiction. You had to get that energy to acknowledge the 28th anniversary of. I mean, it is an anniversary look at an anniversary and anniversary, but it's not around number. Why are we celebrating the 28th anniversary of anything? Even the 15 year anniversary of June I was like, really? 15 feels you're stretching it. I mean, I'm surprised we haven't done an episode of this show about the 30th anniversary of white men can't jump. I will say I didn't care for their Regina hall bit that was about kind of casting her as this desperately thirsty party single woman, single woman. I was like, what? So, before we go on with the show, we just have to do some quick emergency testing backstage. Don't worry. It's only a few people. It's totally random. If you hear your name, I'm going to start with Bradley Cooper. Timothée Chalamet. She sold it. Yeah, but I wouldn't like that joke if the joke was a guy doing a COVID test by feeling up women. And I didn't particularly care for that as a joke to have, or do either. I'm not going to lie. I didn't care for it. But I think she's wonderful. And I think Wanda Sykes and Amy Schumer were both very well used in this. So I don't know. They were fine. Fine. That's the assessment. I felt it was uneven, but I felt that the whole evening was uneven very kind of shapeless and padded and all the talk of how they were going to streamline the show. They kind of sort of really didn't. But that's the Oscars. We want to know what you think about this year's Oscars at imagine people have thoughts.

"At the end of February, in an attempt to offset the saggy ratings of recent Oscars broadcasts. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced that for its 94th edition, airing on March 27th, 8 of the smaller awards, the academy didn't use that exact language, but you can see it hanging above their invisible heads, like a cartoon Thought Bubble, would be handed out in the hour before the beginning of the live telecast, with clips of the winners appearing later in the show. Last week in the Los Angeles Times, the shows producer will packer defended that and other measures being taken to pep up the event. This show can be anything he said, but it can't be boring. Packer producing the show for the first time has his work cut out for him, with the expectations of not just a network ABC, but the world's looming over him, like Godzilla. But what if a little or even a lot of boring is exactly what the Oscars show needs? The one thing you can't control in advance about it, the human element is also the unruly component that makes it great. The show's long, boring stretches, and some years have more than others, should be treated not as liabilities, but as proof of life. What's true in action movies is also true in awards shows. There's no discernible rhythm to nonstop excitement, and the best thing in Oscars broadcasts can have is a pulse. A pulse isn't synonymous with perfection. In fact, it's the opposite. It means subjecting viewers to speeches that say virtually nothing to monologues that aren't as lively as their writers had hoped. These are the parts of the show where you go to the kitchen to refresh your drink, or dish with your friends about the gowns. You're not watching a TikTok video, edited down to a few compulsively watchable minutes. This is a show where people are rewarded for their work, where the serendipitous nature of who's called up to the stage can mean anything can happen even though in recent years that anything has been severely restricted. It's true that the Oscars broadcast has become more homogenized and less thrilling in recent years, partly because the shows producers have taken notes, perhaps too well, of what elements are likely to displease viewers. It's been 9 years since Seth MacFarlane raised the ire of audiences with the we saw your boobs production number. The routine had a purpose. It was an attempt to puncture Hollywood's hypocrisy and striving to honor its classiest projects and stars on Oscar night, even as no one wants to talk about the real reasons people go to the movies, and though nudity is rare in today's Hollywood movies for decades, the years many of our most accomplished actresses were coming up. Hollywood executives insisted on it as a way of bringing in more moviegoing dollars. The cutting subtext of mcfarlane's number, he was backed by the Los Angeles gay men's chorus who had to have been in on the joke. Was that these were accomplished actresses, but they'd had to endure their share of indignities on their way to getting taken seriously. Whatever you think of the number, it was a risk that seems to have frightened the academy. Afterward, it edged away from any attempt at outrageousness and deeper into the more lukewarm shoals of tastefulness. Add to that, the fact that winners and presenters themselves are fearful of taking chances..
"oscars" Discussed on The Times: Daily news from the L.A. Times
"These almost like existential questions about the movies? Man, that sounds like a big ask for an award show, Mark. Deeper existential questions. I mean, I was surprised last year, you know, the year where no one could go to the movies. I mean, we were pretty much wiped out because of the pandemic. That was the odd year at the train station pandemic ceremony, and they didn't show any clips from the nominated movies. It was like, I really expected the ceremony to lean into the magic of movies. That's a cliche, but I think the Oscars ceremony does need to remind people about why we gather in theaters. I feel it's a sacred place. That sounds a little much, doesn't it? But it has been a sacred place for me for my whole life. I think the Oscars would do well to remind people of just how good it feels to be in a space with other people. A communal space where you're sharing an experience as opposed to sitting at home alone or with your friends or family, but there's something just still singular about moviegoing and I hope the Oscars remind people about that this year. Justin, do you have thoughts on that? The theaters are sacred to me too. And I do wish that in a year that the pandemic has just continued to just have such serious repercussions for the theatrical exhibition industry and not as dire as the year before, but we're still coming out of this. I wish that there were less of a push to change everything right this second. Can we have a little grace? And that's not a quality I realized that many ascribe to anything, especially in the working world, but it's like, can we have a little bit of grace unless on the off chance in this whatever we're going to see of a show that's coming up. If it can inspire, even if by accident that kind of awe, that kind of respect and interest in movies and in moviegoing, that's great, you know, more power to them. I hope that that happens. Married, do you have thoughts on the bigger meaning of the Oscars should be this year? They were invented to sort of publicize the movies and to get people excited about the movies. That's why they decided to create an award show. And that's why they decided to put it on television. So that was their original job to sort of drum up interest. In the movies. So yes, that's something that it definitely should do. They should definitely be leaning into the magic of the movies, which they do in the past, but particularly now. I agree with Justin. As I've said, I'm not as upset as other people about the idea of not everybody getting it on live television. But I don't think this was the year. I mean, this is the year where we're finally coming back to normal. It would have been nice to sort of wait a year. But I think it's important for a return to normalcy. I mean, that to me was when the pandemic was real, it's like when they shut the movie theaters. It was like holy I've never seen anything like this. Colleges closing, that was a big deal too. But I mean, when they shut the movie theaters, which had been opened through war and after 9 11 and all the big things that we've all seen, I've never seen the movie theater shuttered. So the reopening of the movie theater should have been that bigger deal, but because it occurred in because the pandemic has been so weird with the variants and not people not comfortable and the masks and all of that stuff. We just never had our big bells ringing moment that opening the movie theaters would have been part of that. So I think it's important for the academy to establish that bell's ringing moment. And I don't think they've done it yet. And so maybe they'll do it in this Oscars, which is like the movies are open. The theaters are open. It's like go. Be around your fellow humans, because I do think it's important for people's souls to be you can't be experiencing all of these wonderful rich stories alone trapped in your own head. You have to be experiencing it with other people. That's the purpose of theater of all theater. Of catharsis. That's the purpose, is to go and experience these emotions with other people and feel these connections. And I love a good binge watch and I watch all the streamers. But I also go to the movies because it's a whole different ball game and you've got to be part of that. Well, the four of us will all be working and watching on the 27th, although how many other people will be watching, I guess, remains to be seen, but Glenn, Justin Mary, thanks to all of you for joining us today. You're welcome. Thank you. Did we bring it in under three hours, Mark? We did. We did..

"This film is coming to PBS on Monday, march 28th, that's a day after the Oscars. This one's really good too. Yeah. I mean, I didn't really know what to expect, but I think from the very first scene where we see Mira interviewing a woman and her husband about a difficult subject about being consistently gang raped by these men and having told her that they had tried to go to the police and the police ignoring them. And then in the next scene, we see Mira going to the police and being like, why haven't you prosecuted this case? Why have you not taken up this case? And so this is like absolutely citizen journalism. And it tracks sort of the way in which this very small publication became such a huge part of the change that is going on in their city and in their country. And I think that does a really good job of sort of showing that and showing the way journalism can work at its best. One of my favorite recurring themes is trying to help her journalist learn how to use technology because they are making that transition to digital. And there's one person in particular who's having trouble. But Mira has the patience of an angel. She's just like, okay, I'm going to teach you, I'm going to take an hour. I'm going to teach you all how to do this, how to read the English characters on your phone so that you can do this. And to really see her take all those people under her ring and lead them and seeing them confront all of these men usually on the job. This is one of those movies that's super inspiring in a way, but also infuriating because it's like I can't believe they have to go through all of this just to put out a paper and then going to digital..

"He's looking at you, kid. That is Humphrey Bogart in one of the many quotable scenes, almost every single scene from Casablanca, which won the best picture Oscar in 1944. What do you guys think of Casablanca landing all the way up at number two? So I saw this movie, not for the first time, but I saw it on the big screen for the first time. A few years ago at the Turner classic movies festival. And to see that movie on a big screen is just to be in awe of the magic of movies. And I know that sounds super silly, but I know, but it is so just everything about it, obviously there's the quotes, but there's also just has everything you want to be nostalgic about for old Hollywood, including the black character who just sits there in place of piano. Sam. I get it. I get why people still go back to this. It is Humphrey Bogart's probably most famous role ever. It is definitely to most people, I think, Ingrid Bergman's most famous role, even though, obviously, I think a lot of people would say there were better movies that she's been in. I get it. And I don't begrudge our listeners for putting it so high or for so many people, including it on their list because I do think it does have that very Oscar magic of movies we're going to do a Montage. If there is a Montage at the Oscars, Casablanca is almost always included. That's just what it is. There are movies that become so famous that the idea of them eventually swamps the movie itself in that cultural terms so that it's almost impossible to really talk about the movie separate from the legend of the movie and the fact that it always shows up on lists like this. But that doesn't mean it's not a great movie. And so absolutely much respect to not just this film and everybody involved in it, but to our listeners for caring about a crazy old love story between a couple of little people, whatever that thing is, yeah. Here we go. I mean, that's the thing. This is the cultural ubiquity mixed with the post modern condition. If the first time you see that airplane seeing the heli bean scene is Kermit and piggy, which is the case with me, then when you actually see it, you're like, oh, I get it. It is filtered through so many cheesecloth of culture that it is hard for me to have a direct response to it. But again, if you see it on the big screen, that might be the secret. Well, I'll tell you something. I never saw it on the big screen, and I went into this discussion knowing we were probably going to talk about this film and I racked my brain. Have I ever actually sat down and watched this film? Or have I just absorbed so many references to this film that I think I've seen it. So I sat down this week and I watched it. It's streaming on HBO Max. And sat down and took about 15 minutes, you know, a couple of casting choices I would have done differently. I'm sitting there kind of with my little critics hat on and I soon just got swamped with just the feeling of like, I'm watching something utterly sublime. Something that still feels completely relevant. I just thought this film was just gorgeous. I was able to get lost in it and experience it basically for the first time. It's still possible to do that. And I think that's one of the many things that make it a great pick. All right. So number one, I think at least one person on this panel is going to be very happy because in the number one slot is parasite. Great job. Yeah. Regency, recency bias. But I don't blame them. I mean, it's a ruthlessly good film, a perfect film. No notes. Yeah. Yeah. I think that's both recency bias and as we talked about how exciting that was as a best picture win. What it represents. Plus, I mean, obviously, on top of what a freaking great movie it is. Oh yeah, I love this movie. I'm not harping on it being recency plays. I'm just saying, I think that played a huge part of this. For sure. But I think it's kind of nice that this is a dark freaking movie. We are in dark times. I'm sure people have also especially now. We are feeling super dark as a culture and this makes sense. Well, and we've talked about the relevance of Casablanca. I mean, the relevance of the class conflict portrayed in this movie. This is a film to me that I feel like we will see referenced and refracted in other films. For the rest of our lives. Absolutely. So I won the episode, clearly. Fine. Take that the apartment. Other than Stephen, none of the rest of us had access to what the rankings were prior to this taping. So I won the episode ferrets. Whatever. But we want to know what your best best picture is.

"Blockbusters. I think that makes sense. Well, and I think referring to it as a crowning achievement does make a lot of sense. This was kind of a coronation for Spielberg in a lot of ways where he had been making great movies for a long time, but suddenly kind of got his laurels Oscar wise. So it's also somewhat of a career achievement. And also he had that sort of not that his films before hadn't been personal in a way. But I think the way this was marketed for him like a personal story as well really helps in that sense. Yeah. So in the number three slot is a movie I know all four of us love moonlight. It's directed by Barry Jenkins and won best picture in 2017. Way to go in that famous moment when Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty erroneously said that La La Land won best picture. I think that made this feel like even more of a triumph. What do you guys think of moonlight coming in at three? Absolutely delighted. As you know, Steven because you were with me and Glenn, we were all together. The moment when this got misread and then correctly read at the Oscars was maybe the best moment at the Oscars ever. Yeah. I'm not sure the la La La Land producers would agree. Well no, but here's the thing. And this would go back to my argument for parasite, which is that one thing that it is valid to say best, best picture winner is what's the best story of a movie winning best picture. To me, the fact that La La Land had had all this momentum and people had really had the sense it maybe it was going to win, including over the course of that evening. And the thing with the Oscars is it's so often it does feel disappointing because it feels so on rails. When something happens that you just know immediately is just a huge mess, it is so invigorating. Just watching all those people, there is a moment in that sequence where you see some person running across the stage and you just know it's not clear yet, but panic has begun to set in and someone is running across the staff. It's a great story. And that's aside from the fact that it's a beautiful movie. We talked at the time about what a beautiful movie it is. It is richly deserving. It also just happens to be a fantastic Oscar night story as well. Yeah, and as much as I stumped for giant productions and spectacle, there is something about a different kind of technical skill being channeled into something this specific, the ache of this movie, the longing of it, the power of it. There's a scene where two of the characters walk to a car in a parking lot outside a diner that is just vibrating with possibility and a king longing. It's saying this film changes you. I remember we saw this film together a bunch of us did anyway. We were on tour, PCH tour. I think we were in LA and we walked out of that theater. I was struck with awe for the first time in a long time. It changes you. Yeah, I remember the first time I heard about this film, was a few months before and I had a friend who was working at 8 24. And he was like, yeah, we have this movie from Barry Jenkins. And I was like, oh, yeah, I know he made medicine for melancholy. I really love that movie. And he was like, yeah, this is going to be a really great movie. And people tell you that, and especially people who are working on a film, okay, sure. And then I saw it and I was like, holy crap, this is absolutely took my breath away. I saw it three times in theaters. I feel like part of why this is so high is recency bias. We've got to count for that. Of course. But I do think that it is going to hold up. It already has held up 5, 6 years later. And the sheer feat of this movie winning, it being the first movie that had an all black cast. And it wasn't about racism. And it was just a small story. There's no franchise elements to it. It was based off of a play, previous work, but it wasn't this franchise movie. I just think it's such a beautiful story. And I'm so glad that Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty got it wrong in the direction instead of the other direction, 'cause that would have been like incredibly heartbreaking. All right, well, I think we can agree great pick. I really like our number two pick as well. It is the oldest movie.

"Wow this is going to be so cool and then like just took a turn for the terrible. Don't know how in the year in two months now that this pandemic has has been happening. How we haven't figured out like zoom mean in like i. I don't watch any talk shows anymore. I don't watch any word shows. Like the zoom. It's just horrendous. It's like someone sitting in their living room. Our hotel room. There's randoms next to them. That are like they're supposed family. Or whatever okay what you would think is that we're so tired of seeing people on zoom screens in that. Were so desperate for them to be back. In person. in a group you would think that but the oscars proved that incorrect. Because while i'll give you some other things first before i get into the actual ceremony or i'm going to quiz you on some movie knowledge because i'm a big movie person same. Do you know who. Steven soderbergh steven soderbergh. He's the was the producer of this year's oscars. He's a famous director. I picked the movies. I picked four movies that you would potentially know from the movie seized directed. I feel like i'm kiki palmer to this on the movie here in the movies directed that you might now.

He most recently directed a movie where meryl streep was like a writer on a cruise ship. This was the movie is meryl streep's on a cruise ship anyway. It's been pretty wild..

"Two different shows figured out how to make it happen problem to have characters people care. They did a good job combining them. But i think to some people that are don't underst- especially in the first couple of so. You might not understand that. These events are happening happenings but simultaneously. They are not onto different. Yeah so also where things where scenes are happening was a little confusing to me. We'll talk about this morris because the lands don't really look all that different at giant city and the others a palace and so. Yeah you're right. They look exactly the same iceland You know whatever. Spanish likes sand snakes. Land all right. Should we do sell what you did there. Sure i watched sound metal. Finally the resume. Ed starring movie that got a bunch of oscar. Nominations and eventually won a couple. I think for sound design and editing darius margaret is the director of this. He's the first director. This movies. Fucking great. I really wanted to watch it. At some point resort is just amazing. Also super hot And it is about. I didn't know that it was basically about you know this drummer guy. That basically is hearing and has to deal with sort of integrating into a deaf community but also. He's an addict so he's integrating into a halfway house. That's focusing on death people with addiction issues and it is a lot yeah. It is super intense. Racism ed's performance is crazy. Good i talked about for jenny. Saunders listening we love you. Jenny may will get john and talk about this stuff at some point. She is an interpreter for deaf. People in kind of various jobs like everything government to like amazon. Whatever i i was really curious about how this movie sort of ties together. Deafness which from that community is not perceived as a handicap is very much a point of pride in the deaf community. it's not a handicap. Oh yeah addiction. Treated in twelve step programs as a disease and so this sort of mantra the movie totally recog- reconciles like thematically about this guy basically becomes death suddenly rather than being a native sign language speaker. So there's a lot of like stuff that i don't even know how to reconcile in my head but it made me think a lot anything. The movie wants you to think and it's also amazingly sort of empathetic about sort of you know just like seeing sub communities within communities and sort of feeling how that gets recognized and now those people deal things for movie called sounded metal..

Or wherever you find your podcast please do it. It will help us get seen by somebody. And maybe not have to make the rest francis we going straight into the oscars justice think we might as well right. Ninety third oscars. The oscars are more than middle aged. Which i believe is the actual age of at least one of dave's parents so hundred oscars for crazies. That must have been started when they were babies. Yes that's works your a baby when you are born. Why should we talk about good stuff. I just to be a little more positive fairway. Why don't you covered the good stuff that you liked. And then all good stuff that i liked okay The best moment was obviously. I stopped because it's minority the best movie and got pretty much ignored. was Young union joan thank you.

"Actor in a leading role. Anthony hopkins in the father. Rihts op ed. In sound of metal. Mr chadwick boseman for my rainey's black bottom. Gary oldman for manque and stephen for minority winner. Anthony hopkins five blow. Now let me tell you something. Let me tell you. Something which anthony hopkins performance. In low-pay there has never been a better performance now. This doesn't mean it is the greatest performance there. There's never been. You can't do it better. You can't just look at what they showed during the ceremony. Just look at that one. Just look at it. Now tablet boseman. We miss him. We love him the honor but if this is about performances it is anthony hopkins wiz in sound of metal. You saw the clip. Didn't you with paul rachi sitting there. I'm just saying take a look at the work steven. Yeun minority deservedly nominated here. You saw him with his little son. That was a cute little clip. They gave us. Gary oldman frank. Is gary oldman. This just like when you say francis mcdormand. Hey eastern expect anything. Yeah l. Before you think about this category you must see the father. That's all i gotta say. I think that's good advice of the biggest thing here is that chadwick was sweeping. He was there. There was a an even sweep and both saw the father last year at different times you sing it at the festival and i saw it before it Way before it was released even into the theaters. And the thing is you can't see the father or it didn't have a lot of time in homes if it is even in homes now. I'm not jeers. It is okay but but like twenty hours as far as chat goes. I wouldn't have bad with either meaning meaning. Because i don't watch the father like you know everybody's that kind of thing if it had been chadwick. What i know is is is that was to me. I did not see you. The five. The defy defy defy bloods again. Haven't seen yet. But i really enjoyed chadwick's performance and thought it was it. Rivaled these other actors. But i have to say i agree that anthony i have never seen. I have never seen a performance. That has taken me on such unemotional. Ride without telling me to be emotional. Yes without without making me cry because you know. He's so beside himself. That i can't it was just like it's still lives with me. I still close my eyes. I still have to figure out. Is this real the emotional journey. That that actor that anthony hopkins and i will leave it alone after. This is shakespearean. Yes because he really had to go through the full i mean. I'm talking about the full arsenal shakespeare. The tragedy the comedy the cutting the anger jealousy like had everything and a master was wielding all of that yes at at and it just ordering it was a soaring performance and just because you said the five bloods with chadwick. What came to my mind when you said that. Refuse this chadwick. Boseman at a young age was a man on the screen. Now his some of his contemporaries haven't gotten there yet. Yeah i will say that but when you see the five bloods you will understand what i mean. He's not on the screen a lot. It would be a supporting role for him there. He was a man at a young age. Yeah just to me. Chadwick's i'm not. I am saying it. Yes partially because he's no longer with us but i really enjoyed his work. And i thought this was a worthy worthy not to him and as well. I'm very very happy for anthony hopkins because that was a riveting performance. Now we've got to go to the best picture. Here yes go. We've got no midlands. We've got the father judas and the black messiah make monari promising young woman sound of metal trial of the chicago seven. All of these are indie movie. All of either. So that's what we're saying that this different this year and wouldn't it be so appropriate to have the quintessential indie movie to take it home. And of course that must mean no midland takes it for this year again. There is a lot of up and down with this throughout the award season. But chloe and her team along with francis take the big award. You know how. I feel about nomad land. It did what i said. Exactly it was going to do and Of all of these for me. I i i have to say. The father was an exceptional experience for me. I do to the black guy. I had such a good time. You know just rooting for that. But it ev- really want to be honest and say that the movie that is sticking with me even as i'm breathing right now. No other movie has been able to do that this year. Or in that twenty twenty season the way the father has done it i will never see dementia the same weight again to me. That was the best picture saria. Yeah followed these nominees. They're five of them. That i would think about Number five colleges do it that way would probably be monari number four would be judas black messiah number three would be no man's land for me number two would be sound of metal and number one would be the father Like you said with the father it is. It's an experience for everyone regardless of your relationship with dementia. It educates without educating It recalls if you ve been anything like this ever calls those things in a way that if knew it because you get into his head which you can't do if you love someone dimension can't do that so it's just it's astounding and in a similar way sound of metal. Does that when it comes to losing your hearing And when when i saw those clips again particularly those two movies it took me back. Took me back to our felt. No my land to me like you. Said quintessential indie movie. Because it's technically beautiful just flawless. Just even the best yet right. Where the cuts like like all of that stuff in making these seemingly simple.

I think we allude what i was. Alluding to is the fact that normally when we see the oscars and all of the major pictures that are being nominated and things like that it doesn't feel like the indie spirit awards but it did and the look. The oscars was unusual. So normally we're in this big hall and their seats galore almost like an opera. You know you've got the production in the opening number and all the stuff and the host. Maybe not always the those last couple of years. But it's a big to do this year. It wasn't person however none of those things. If you remember a movie in the eighties starring the.

"See how the how the ceremonies gonna look because soderbergh keeps talking a game about how it's gonna look so different compared to other oscar ceremony so i'm looking forward to that. Well keep a tally of what we predicted and see who does the best amongst the three of us. I'm not optimistic. Between the three of us. We probably should get about twenty two or twenty three risers one or two surprises. Yeah i agree. I think last year was the closest thing. I've ever gotten too perfect. I got fucked on to the two. That i got fucked director and picture. Oh my god it. Last year. I had the only that didn't know that i have this exact same valid than you. I was like this is going to be my twenty four twenty four year. I had all the show everything i predicted. As the sound of splits. I mean that was kind of a lot. Occupa- couldn't decide. So i slipped them and when it was after that i was like. Oh my god. I'm going to get twenty four. This is going to be my twenty four year. That's exactly what harris site came out of the number very happy one. But i was like damn is. Yeah i agree. I agree hundred percent. I was like after the sound split. I had the same feeling. i'm like. Oh my god. I think i'm gonna do it. And then bond wins. And i'm like i i'm not going to be.

"I i know this is probably nothing she justed. Snl and that could give a little boost to. I'm just gonna go with my heart here. And i have. I have cary mullen. I just think. It's my favorite performance of the year. So so i guess. We know what tom dick. But i'm fifty fifty on those two. I'm struggling. I'll probably switch. I have aol. They do like her a lot. Yup it's lead oscar for her. And i think they want to recognizer. They know they know very well. There's only been one african american woman to win this game. I have now. But i also switzer probably five times on sunday. Yeah and i think. The reason reason i'll have viola is the fact that i don't think correct me if i'm wrong You guys. I don't think there's ever been a situation where actress and actor has gone to to people that have not that are not in a best picture nominee. I don't think oh coming home was what's coming home. This picture nominee. I can't remember the vietnam movie where I can't remember that win. Best actress that did. I'm johnny voids. I'm checking that right now. We once me too. But i say we can throw out the window and here. I am trying to like find a way. So yeah that actually. No that was nominated for best picture so Jon voight john. They did one but it wasn't raining yet but the picture so i don't i. I don't think it's never happened. So that would keep plenty. Doesn't matter to me so much though you have it. That doesn't matter to me. I feel like when they look at it. Did they say oh well. It's not a best picture. Nominees give it to her. I think that. I think what that reflects is. If it's not a best picture nominee not as many people liked the movie overall but in the best category it's typically not of picture nominee carr's best actresses are not investigating knees. So that would've stopped me so that that's not that does not stop me from verdict in violent and also dave let me say we talked before about like trying to get get the headline right lane. I think about it. If it goes to viola or andhra it's the first time is Will it be the first time that not a single caucasian person want or signed in one of the arrest to be the first time and if any year that you're gonna make history like that. I don't know is this the year. I think it helps. I do think that helps you know i. I agree this is i think. No one except vanessa. Kirby would shock us if they went on and on sunday. I don't think anything would surprises at this point. And i think this is now no. This is actually a fact. This is the first time that we go into the oscars and no one has more than one win right. Yep and i will say..

"My wife and i are very very into old movies. Movies from the thirties. Forties and the sound design a mink soon as i started watching that film and the authenticity that it makes. You feel like you're watching. A movie from the thirties. Really stuck with me throughout the entire film. Sound meadow is great and it would be deserving winner. I'm not saying it wouldn't but that's why out of the five man has always stuck with me. Since i've seen it as my favorite sound of the year of tom. What are you have here but pick a sound. I don't know. I can't see how anything can Out best sound of metal. I mean the way that they toward the end of the movie when he gets the surly out and he starts hearing thing. I mean i. I don't even know how that's it's an incredible feat. What they did biter do i. I agree. I do think sound. The meadow is going to win holiday. What about you. I mean it says sound in the name your says sound in the name. That no one's going to change my my prediction.
