So even though homes that earns me the right to get back to my wife and. That's my mission. To. Remove your helmet and tell me Your name. Name is gladiator. I will have my venues. Generous with his time he proved that so many times when he was working at solar giving up his time for free. After the lectures were over. With students who needed that extra tuition, he joined university as a part time lecturer in special effects and mechanical engineering. And he really does turn dry boring lectures because I've definitely sat through some lectures which are quite boring into exciting practical demonstrations. And is it true that you constructed a fake Russian tank and it was used on the streets of Saint Petersburg James Bond movie. Goldeneye? Yes, we did. Yeah. We did that. How did that come about? Because the Russians didn't WanNA. Wheel tank driving over the cobblestones. Smashing cobblestones up around the Mojica Palace. So we built a tank like a kid's toy which rubber tracks and underneath had wheels. So we'll take but not break anything and how did you get into the James Bond movie. To supply. Thanks. Okay, the power of tanks they you got the PUTT supplied. All, the military vehicles for Saving Private Ryan. Was Elvis choice for the James Bond Films.

In Winchester as the people won't buy on a sunny August stay. And a lot of people didn't about you. Thank you very much for joining us software pleasure because of that private lunch last year. So perhaps you could set the record straight firstly in what context did you say the words Jewish people are among? The cleverest in the world. It came up in conversation. About Physics I've always an interest since I was a boy in astrophysics. because. I couldn't believe that one hundred years ago almost. Albert Einstein we're talking about such abstract subjects as light being affected by gravity. And he works out the speed of light, which was a phenomenal thing to do in the nineteen twenties. How did this man come to realizations about what actually control the will then what does control the world? And the whole universe that we live in? So. My interest was based on this philosophy. On physics. And when the lady Mico sleater told me that she was a qualified physicist and she was American. It was almost involuntary question for me to Oscar. She was Jewish and again, this was a private lunch at a private lynch over Cup of coffee. Now, it was also reported to say that you said that black men on the privileged needle help that they can get. Yes. I did say that. Because I've worked all over the world of work in Africa I worked in South Africa Mozambique worked in North Africa. And I realized that a lot of people in Africa are culturally disadvantaged. Cheaper to anybody else. But. The coach or they grow up in doesn't give them the advantages that we have in the West. And therefore, I was always prepared to give them extra help. In addition to this, it was reported in the Times by Phillips that you told Dr Burner. Most Nigerians did not have it in their DNA to be engineers. Is this true? Absolutely not true. This was one of the spiteful comments made by my course. Lita. In a fifth of of temper to get me set knowing. It would certainly get me ten. She also alleged other city things.

I know nothing about it I only know that gets us by the police. In various reports, you read in the papers on I know nothing about DNA.
Amy Spowart, Head Of The National Aviation Hall Of Fame
"Many years especially when right field was more impactful when the foundations of today's age were taking off so much research with here at Afrl, and there's all kinds of research and aerospace research places that are here. It made a lot of sense Scott Crossfield even said to me once amy, you're not a pilot unless you through right field everybody who's anybody flies through right field, and of course, you know in the early days, there were Ayla celebrity who always came on China and it was John Wayne and Jimmy Stewart. Who's who I remember? My first enshrinement in nineteen ninety, nine Ted Williams came at Joe Foss. We've had John Travolta Dennis, quaid miles, O'Brien all been and sees it the hall of fame event but I would say following the economic downturn of two thousand nine and companies started to pull out of the Dayton area. It was harder to get that kind of support. So while the city of Dayton wholeheartedly loves having the hall of fame here we also Need people who can sponsor because we receive no federal state or local funding at all whatsoever. So we have to depend on aerospace aviation companies industry to support US and in Trimbe it was a big help us getting brand recognition. It's never been moneymaker. It's part of our mission to memorialize. So we need people to support our education and support are learning center through sponsorship. So what we decided to do in two thousand seventeen is actually take quote unquote. Show on the road, the Oscar night of aviation left Dayton and we went to Dallas first, and then we went to DC in twenty, eighteen and Denver and twenty nineteen than we were supposed to have a homecoming here in twenty twenty. But of course, the this year has been postponed until two thousand, twenty one we're working on getting is back to the National Aviation Hall of fame in Dayton use an abbreviation there a F- on the Air Force research. Lab. So. Here Wright Patterson Air Force Base. Employees. I think it's twenty to thirty thousand people in. Southwest Ohio, and only about less than half of those are active military. So there's a lot of research scientists here, and that's where the United States air force does all their most important research everything from what they're going to build aircraft out of to what their munitions do and Jet Propulsion. It's all located here in Dayton at Wright Patterson Air Force Base. Still is very much a hub of aerospace activity. especially from the military and. Speaking of which there are signs that the or the appeal of aerospace is not resonating with the youngest generation do you sense that and if so is the hall responding in some way? It's hard because it's just like covert. The company's nonprofits that survive cove. It are the ones who are going to adapt and react to the situation with kids with this next generation they're not so much looking up lake weeded or the generation before me did Neil Armstrong stood in one place and what's fair to the sky and we all know the Wright brothers played with a little plastic helicopter type thing that inspired them. So we need to appeal to kids in. What interest them? So that might be if they're interested in the environment, they WANNA make less noise from aircraft. They want less jet fumes from cargo plane. That kind of thing we have to say, why not you? Why don't you figure that out? It makes me think of enshrining clap Myra who wanted a safer jet plane. So he thought about it and thought about it and he Allen Clapp mark came up with this idea of putting a parachute on the top of. A plane and everyone's like that's not gonNA work except the vision jet is pretty remarkable. So what we need to do is have kids interact or read about or they have to know who Bill Mayer is, and it isn't just Alan Shepherd. It isn't just the astronauts it isn't just the inventors it's all the Chinese and they can inspire kids more than just an aviation. It could be designed it to be dreamers that could be artists, but if we all have. Heroes. That's what gets kids going and if we give them a problem like make less noisy aircraft or might be a kid who's a Gamer and they sit on the computer all day, they're actually going to be fantastic drone pilots. We just have to recognize what they're doing and adapt to it.
David Archer previews the Atlanta Falcons
"The Atlanta Falcons will do so with a former Falcons quarterback. Now he is their longtime color analysts on the radio network for Atlanta. And that is David Archer. David Hope all is. Well. Thanks for doing this. When we look at the Falcons, they made a big offseason acquisition getting Todd Gurley We don't know where the health is of Todd Gurley. What do you expect at a Todd Gurley coming over from l. A to Atlanta for this upcoming season? Well, be honest with you. I think we're expecting a lot of early and mainly in the Red zone. If you look at Todd Gurley's numbers, even with with so called quote unquote down near Around 900 yards rushing, still had 12 touchdowns. All 12 of those touchdowns came in the red Zone, and I think that Atlanta if they could find a way to run the football down close Help three up the talented weapons that Ryan has on the perimeter. Now, listen, you have a little bit more of a potent attack a little bit more looking a little bit more like what? You looked like a 16 when Avante Freeman and Tevin Coleman. We're carrying the ball down there close and created that problem in the run game. Atlanta has not had that over the last couple of seasons. I think that's where they expect Todd Gurley to make his main hey is down there in the red Zone. With the way that you probably have to manage his reps as a running back the rest of the running back room. Is there something that jumps out to you? Yeah, I think it's a good group. Really Do I think that when you look at Brian, Ill in the way, Brian Gillis Kamani together that Hawkins drafted a couple of years ago, Brian Handsome solid moments a year ago. Quadri Allyson. Kid at Pittsburgh rookie from a year ago. Uh, kind of woke himself. A little bit of a roll is a short yardage guy. Â£225 Goal line Guy, four touchdowns. Hopefully, you know, Smith can come back. He was injured in the game a year ago. I believe against the Rams in which he was trying to pick up a Blitzer, which he shouldn't be here should be doing, but he is an outstanding receiver out of the backfield. And a good change of pace back at the back, So they get to three young guys that I think you could lean on. And like you said, Take some of that. Load off. Assad, Girl. Let's get to the next down. And when we do so, we take a look at Matt Ryan and Julio Jones. The two big names in that organization. Do you still believe that this team could be a play off team once again with Matt Ryan and Julio Jones? I do, but it's you know, obviously, it's about you know your supporting cast and you do some things on the other side of the ball, and I'm sure there's a question you've got to worry about the defense's side the football, But there there's a little area in the offensive line. The left guard has been a little bit leaky, right guard's been a little bit leaky because of some injuries and things that they could shore up that into your part of the offensive line. Ryan's Like most classic quarterbacks climb in the pocket. They got to be able to give him that opportunity. Do so if you get into your pressure and accurate from problems, one game will help in that regard, but Yeah. Julio Jones, 16 seconds, 1300 yard seasons. Matt Ryan, nine consecutive 4000 yard seasons. I don't see the one those guys backing off. When you talk about that offensive line to follow up on that I'm a big fan of Matt Hennessy. Being a temple grad, really smart football player puts in a lot of work. Is he going to make an immediate impact in your number one? Yeah, There's always a question that he's certainly in the mix to be the starting guard. There's no question about that. I think that there's ah lot excitement around when he brings the table and and obviously the heir apparent, Alex Mack, probably its center. So Alex back in a little bit longer to still have a good football any But I need to put some guys around him that Khun taken, it could be in there and we had German Brown and James Carpenter guys that could not stay on the field. There was some solid moments from those two big veteran players, but they did not stay on the field and consistency. In the interior specialist that left guard spotted Kennedy ultimately will probably win that job and be the starter that guard let's get to the next down. All right, David Archer. When they flip the switch here and go to the other side of the ball defensively, it was an up and down year for the defense, but it seemed like they did finish in a better spot than what they did earlier on in the season. You could probably say that for the entire team with the Atlanta Falcons this division. Is loaded with offensive talent. You know what the Saints are. Now you have Tom Brady and the division with Tampa Bay, and I'll be curious to see what Teddy Bridgewater does with the Panthers. What's your read on the Falcons defense entering 2020 Well, it's an uncertain situation obviously went on God. Dante Fowler, Dad's pressure off the edge contact. McKinley realized what they thought they had when they drafted him a couple of years and the number one spot picked up Charles Haley, who, ironically, was in the same draft. And raided a route the same attack McKinley are Charles Harris. I'm sorry. Charles. Charles Charles Haley. Right way. I'd like to have the guy that was rushing the pastor there for both the Cowboys in the 40 Niners. That would be great, but Harris. He does have some raw talent there. Can't he realize that I'm the Falcon Tutelage will have to wait and see Grady dear. It's an emerging star in the tackle position and Marlon Davidson, Vienna and an interesting ad, a guy that has the versatility to play inside. Maybe in past situations and also play the perimeter as a 34 defensive didn't run down situations. The answer at all Burn second round draft pick of the fact that they think they've upgraded their defensive line. It'll have to be upgraded because you get extremely young secondary. Probably gonna have a rookie a corner starting your nickels, a second year guy in your other corners of third year, guys, So there's a lot of young players on the perimeter need to get some pass rush speed up the thought process for the quarterback. Let's get to the final down. Alright. I'm surprised that Dan Quinn is Bacca's the head football coach for the Lancer Falcons. What does he have to do this year to keep his job and Is that seats the warm because, like I said, I was surprised that they brought him back for this year. It is warm. I think that it's fortunate they brought him back because of the current situation with the pandemic and the uncertainties, so some continuity certainly has played into Atlanta Falcons off season. I think they've had a solid offseason, much as you can, with the limitations. They're attached to this year, So I think that it was good in retrospect that, uh, Mr Black decided to keep Dan Quint on, but I think he's got there. They've got a bit pushed for a playoff spot. I think they've got to be. They can't come out of the box one in seven. It's got to be a team. It's in the hunt of the entire way. As you said, it's going to be outstanding division with outstanding quarterback play, but they have to be in the hunt to be a part of the postseason play. If they do that. And I think the fans will be a little bit of stab on the wound for the fans. But if you get out to a slow start, it would not surprise me. If if Mr Blank made some kind of decision mid season on coach Boy and I think, coach when is the right guy for the job Now it's put up or shut up. He scored a touchdown will go for two here Oscar. One more question This team was 11 5 We all know the deal they were in the Super Bowl blew the 28 23 lead. The next year, they did go 10 and six, the last two years. It's seven and nine. If you had to identify the biggest reason why this team has regressed, and I know they've had some injuries to but overall if it's not the health of the team, what's the biggest thing that you look at? Why this team wasn't able to recreate that magic from 2016 and 2017? I think their inconsistency ball on both sides of the football in conversion, down situations and in the red zone. I think Atlanta's done a great job of moving the ball from 20 to 20 But when they get in the red zone, they bogged down and settle for too many threes. And I think in turn the defense's side of the football. What about 22 23 scoring defense coming up 25 points a game. They've got to find a way to get more stops in the red zone. That's probably the answer that you could probably get from all teams struggled and not made the playoff teams, but I certainly think That that's identifiable with the Falcons over the last couple years, the inability down deep in the red Zone both on offensive defense, Julio Jones, he's Ah Hall of Fame player. We all know that one of the better wide receivers in the league He's only had one year of double digit touchdowns, going back to 2012 when he had 10 TUC maybe 10 touchdowns in his fortunes this year. Well, I think he's certainly capable of it. But you got an outstanding receiver on the other side of Calvin Ridley, who's realized his abilities down in the red Zone Pretty close. I think Aidan hearse is going to be a seamless transition from Austin Hooper tight end spot So there are a lot of weapons from that Ryan to get the football too. Don't forget Todd Gurley and how good he is at the back catching the football as well. So I I would say no, I think he's going to be 89 touchdowns. I don't think he goes double digits, but I think there's a lot of guys around him. They're going to score touchdowns. Look for guys somewhere between 13 14 guys catch touchdown passes issue. Say that we appreciate it. Thanks so much. You be well, my

The New Tech Driven Home Healthcare with Rachel Munsie
"More. Welcome back to the outcomes. Rockets saw Marquez's here and today I have the privilege of hosting. Rachel Muncie she's on the founding team of tomorrow health, a technology driven home healthcare company changing the way individuals and families manage their care. She leads business development focusing on partnerships and sales strategic marketing initiatives, and new market expansion. She was formerly in healthcare investing, just working to unpack the US healthcare system and understand how we can treat. Treat better incentives through innovation policy and Advocacy Rachel received her bachelor's degree from Georgetown University and attended Mit for her MBA. Before leaving to build tomorrow health, you know the M E, durable medical equipment field definitely is a need for innovation and the work that Rachel and the team at Tamar Health doing is super unique and I'm excited to be covering that with you Rachel today and then. So I wanna give you a warm. Welcome. Welcome thanks for joining us. Thank you so much solve. Really appreciate it, and thanks for having me absolutely. So before we dive into tomorrow health and you know what makes you guys so unique and different in that space I love to hear more about you Rachel and what inspires your work in healthcare. Absolutely. So I am most inspired about solving the problems of healthcare and really the ones that we've all faced. So we spend more. More on healthcare in the US than any other country in the world. But our outcomes are worse and everyone understands what this means on level. I personally once racked up a bill equal to my rent payment during one doctor's appointment because even though I knew I'd have a high deductible plan and even though I knew I'd hardly spent anything against it. I, mean, I work in healthcare I throughout all of practical knowledge because I. I was anxious and nervous, and in a vulnerable situation. I think when you're sitting in a doctor's office or hospital, you rarely compare prices or shop smartly and most people don't even know that you can do that. So most of the time we do things because we're scared or rethink what choice do I really have my health is at stake and I think sometimes the prices in our system take advantage of that. So took me. Me a while to internalize I. Think most people don't realize is that we all pay the price for our broken health care system whether we know it or not. So either through lower take home wages or higher premiums or higher deductibles or even higher taxes and I actually still have those outrageous bills sitting on my kitchen table as reminder to myself that these costs aren't normal and i. think we deserve better and so since digging. Digging into this industry I as an investor, and now as an operator, I'm just constantly floored by the unnecessary complexity that I found in every corner of the go system and no one understands any of it. I. Think People Inside the industry barely do ominous the result of some wacky incentives that run. Ima- and not always a bad intentions. But this is exactly how that knowledge between industries, stakeholders and patience and the broader general public. Public just become so massive, and so when it came to my decision to help found tomorrow hull, it's not an exhaustive solution by one clear trend with pasta impact on all of these stakeholders is the shifting of more care to the home, which is higher quality, and as we know much lower cost of care setting. Yeah. You know you call out a lot of issues that were faced with I think every one of us. You're listening to this podcast today. You're thinking Yup I've been screwed with a big medical bill or and if you haven't which I'm sure you have if the very small chance that you haven't I'm sure somebody in your family are a close friend has dealt with it and I think it's great that you keep that bill on your kitchen counter Rachel, just as a reminder, right of the why behind why we're doing what we do and? Yeah. Care in the home is becoming that much more important with Kobe among us. So reimagining that healthcare is critical as you guys like to coin it.

The comfort of your own home, which as you mentioned, all in covid world is extremely important and our big focus envision is on restoring home as the focal point for healthcare delivery and the Genesis of tomorrow health was personal for us, our Co founder and CEO Bj Qatar was working at Oscar. So He's well-versed in the complexity of healthcare and his mom was diagnosed with stage, three cancer, and she needed about a year of intensive home healthcare. Luckily, she's now doing much better, but he was responsible for coordinating. So much of that. That he and his family had to work with over a dozen, different providers would coming out of her home to get what she needed, and after about a month when she was discharged from the hospital, she ended up having to go back three times in her first one pound because of delays or equipment failures relating to her oxygen therapy, and so for patients, and also their families who are usually playing the role of caregivers edition be this hard, and then from a systems perspective whilst does the whole matter and you know by. By dramatically reducing our dependence on hospitals on ers on post acute care sites were able to get high quality care at home and also bend the cost curve in healthcare system.

Canceled Telluride Film Festival announces lineup
"Telluride film festival decided to announce what would have been the slate of films that they were GonNa, show on. September fourth when the festival is supposed to take out, take place before it was cancelled in July, and then we also started to get some news about the New York Film Festival, which will be world premiering a few titles. I. Still don't totally understand how the New, York Film Festival is happening, but let's just talk a little bit about what's going on with film festivals right now. So last year at telluride. They debuted the world premiere of Uncut Gems and Ford versus Ferrari and Judy and first cow, and they had the North American premiere of marriage story. This was a bountiful slate. Lots to see it was a very exciting time. This year, the slate was not a strong. There were some interesting films. There were some very relevant oscar-worthy conversational picks there. I think Francis. Leaves Amanite which many people have been talking about a new movie starring Kate winslet. Insertion Ronin. We're looking for that. How many Oscar nominations to search have at this point twelve fifteen? No. I think it's four, and this will be her fifth, which just seems like I just want to say when we made our really irresponsible Oscar predictions for this year and like having seen nothing I was like I, think Social Ronin will win for this movie that I haven't seen so. At least I think I did I meant to, if I didn't you know please like revised history.
Moving from Amazon to Shopify
"Michael, how are you man? I'm well, thank you. Yes sipping hovel of. Lemon and honey and ginger tea. But I pretty good. Yeah. Yeah. Keeping his bank. Very. Well, very. Good. Well, let's jump in today. We've got a hot topic, I think, and that's the topic of. Moving from Amazon to shop affi-. Or from really you know Amazon to any other sales channel but we're GONNA sort out how shop by dozen doesn't help. ECOMMERCE sellers the pros and cons some of the detail. So you ready to jump into this absolutely hot topic definitely. All right let's do well. So I guess the first question that comes to my mind is you know you work with a lot of mazing Amazon sellers in your skincare collective and programs work there in London. What have you heard from them in terms of their fears frustrations concerns by way of migrating or adding you know a different channel away from The stations can sense I mean he took into Amazon Selah. How long have you got about I mean but Most of them concern Amazon rather than. The fear of moving across course. It's. have. So much fair as a resistance on because I was just so much for you and when we bitching Amazon I, guess he's good to remember that the of qualified traffic with buying intense. Of people who have their credit card on file is amazing and the conversion rates she got on Amazon I mean I was looking at somebody the day in the United Nine Percent Convention right and I'm like, wow, that's great. We could be a fifteen, twenty, twenty, five percent. That's kind of eighty I in the context anywhere else on online, right? For. Those understandable reasons in people on in a hurry to get and they like to bitch about it and I guess every. So often the FE Simone Amazon and that's when they consider maybe making the move uninformed to be fair to the tank Muslims have very active people who do a hell of a lot of stuff and a lot of them have got their own websites. Some of them look beautiful designs when the functions he's pretty good. But does only a couple of people I think actually have any serious percentage of their sales going through their own I'm known Amazon sites. So. I guess that tells you a story. Nor. Does what do you think the The kind of the. Underlying real issue is there is there time? Is it there education about the other side's is at their capacity of their team? Our finances? I mean well, what do you think is that actual barrier to success? Is just good question I I organization of the of the work or it could be this very good question not something. I should probably ask people. It sounds like I'm about to pitch them into a shop if I but I. It is probably an important discussion points allies because I do think. On. The one hand, there is a growing awareness and interest amongst more more members of the Maas bonds. In being able to grow you an audience and specifically contacts, you are not as it tends to be sort of add ons. There's not so much the sales channel thing as a traffic strategy things so that or even being able to control things like reviews are a lot of people building a facebook chats audience in order to then get more reviews on Amazon but the sales China's by much. and. It's not so much a traffic channel as sort of a channel of contacts as the traffic for shopping is still very much about Amazon. Channel Four getting reviews. Is. Stuff like e mail I'm likely chapel design make some kind of say assured like the direct to consumer communication stuff they want to be in touch with them personally for email marketing, those kinds of interactions. Sure. Exactly. But on what the resistance is I guess the here's the thing that the growth sucks cash and also as a capital intensive growth model, a business model and I'm great at selling lots of stuff, which means that people constant need to apply that capital two thoughts channel neff while having a capsule spa and especially to drive traffic, which is my perception of the problem with your in websites Isn't that, and then of course, if you're looking in the short-term medium-term cashflow than if you put money into Amazon odds, I'm not tends to convert better than your own site would it's kind of becomes very hard to justify taking the money away from something that is going to produce an immediate cash flow to something as in. This is my conjecture. Sure. It's true or not but I something already she got an Oscar combined with because it's an excellent question. Okay. Yeah. No I mean that's very interesting. What one just response to what you just mentioned on the ads side of course, the mental shift there is. On Amazon if you're doing ams work, you're really spending money to make sales. On CHIAPPA FI. If you do it right I mean through other advertising platforms he really spending money to acquire a customer.
Shake Milton’s Late 3-Pointer Saves Philadelphia Sixers In Win Over Spurs
"The San Antonio Spurs lost by the Philadelphia Seventy sixers the seventy sixers took it one, thirty, two to one thirty Oscar down the stretch of that one Damore Rosen was tremendous Santa Tonio and it looked to me like the Spurs. We're going to win the game again for their third consecutive win in the Orlando bubble but then there was a key play late in the fourth quarter on Al Horford had the ball he looked to. The Post he looked like he was trying to post up embiid against San Antonio up to so any NBA posted a tied the game the John Day Mario, the defensive guard for San. Antonio over helped a little bit scale I thought he gets sucked into close to 'em. beat on Horford's ball fake or for kickback to shake Milton Milton hit a three that would ultimately win the game Philly also tremendous game philly a tremendous win for Phillies cal. But I think you have to be awfully impressed with the San Antonio Spurs starting they're starting to in one in this restart and they're awfully close to being three and all.

Sure first of all, thank you very much for inviting me to discuss this haven't discussed this in public manner like this. and. So just to give you the basics on May Twenty First, my dad had a stroke. And so he was hospitalized and during his hospitalization desks when they discovered that he had tested positive for the coronavirus. Now, knee him but five other members of my Dad's side family. Tested positive as well, and they all have very close in a suburb in DC called Wheaton Maryland. And so. Obviously I was keeping track and keeping inform with the hospital above my desk condition. Obviously, I can go there to physically see him because of the circumstances. But yet at the time when she told me that he had positive, he was not. On a ventilator. And for three or four days after the twenty first, that was keeping in contact with the hospital. And I'll tell you that every as recently as Monday. The week that he passed away as recently as Monday that which the social worker at the hospital that actually called me. To discuss plans about him having physical therapy with regards to stroke because they felt like his condition at improved. Well enough that the plan you know some form of physical therapy because he had lost all. Movement in in his right side of his body because of stroke. Unfortunately about four days later on the twenty eighth like at. One thirty in the morning I get that phone call and said phone call that we all. Dread. In. Our. Lives. In the middle of the night from the hospital, and they basically told me that during the course of that evening that his his His heart stopped three times. And they had to resuscitate him use a defibrillator. And at that point he. was back on the ventilator and so this is. You know. Primarily because of defects, the effects of the of the virus that has conditioned completing took a one eighty. Overnight. and. So the hospital called me and said, you know in no uncertain terms that she should come to the hospital to see him because he was in a condition where. He. Could basically go at any moment. And so. You know again it's hard to go to hospital right now to visit anyone because. Everyone's covered from head to tell you know nurses doctors everyone especially in the ICU. But nonetheless, they allow me to go into the ICU to see him. And to say, you know basically my final goodbyes to him because that's the condition where he was at at that moment in time. And Yeah all the twenty eighth at like around four thirty when he passed away. And I was there biocide when his heart stopped? Well. Thank you for sharing. Tell me about your your your dad, your e whole I mean, I say, behold for my dad. What kind of soul was he for you? He was very hard working guy again A Guy. A few words I would say which is quite ironic because i. Obviously talk a lot considering the work I do on the radio review he came to the US from Salvador and seventy six he first made his way to California. Then actually drove from San Francisco to Washington DC where me and the rest of my family lives. and. So this is the type of journey that a lot of Salvadoran. Immigrants took during this period of time he came to the US with best. An eighth grade education. But he was an amazing auto mechanic that was the majority of his work here in the US was that of an auto mechanic And I could see that you know he pretty much in every autoshop they worked at during his lifetime he was You.

This Joe Rogan is kicking our. On he's at the top of the Nielsen Ratings and I. Don't think that's ending anytime soon. You have a lot to learn about the BIZ show.

Their mind off of the cruel mistress. That is show business I am. I don't want to, I don't ever want to revisit that subject, and it's a whole other subject for a whole other show, which which is not going to do, but it still doesn't really explain why. You started the podcast today like we were hosting the red carpet coverage for the Academy Awards Okay All Right I. Love The with you. Like to have a bunch of wheels, spinning at once and I've I've been through so many ups and downs in my career in the one thing that I've learned is you got to be ready for anything? So I figured. Why not take an episode of the podcast and use it as an audition tape for the people that the American motion picture arts and Sciences to see if maybe me and Leeza gibbons can host next year's Oscars. Has Anyone Call Leeza Gibbons? I do not want to do this with Carolina? You can't just hijack the show and use it as an audition tape for the red carpet, pre show to an award ceremony.

"oscars" Discussed on Little Gold Men
"Who are sort of out of favour at this point but then again released got got an Oscar nomination for Christopher plummer for movie he was not originally in yeah. My my colts ache is that Matt. Damon should invest a couple years in being like in supporting roles because so great in those and I think he burnt out for whatever reason On him in leading roles and it's just sort of like he's great in supporting roles. This comment brought to you by me watching the entire oceans eleven trilogy and he's supporting at the beginning and lead by the end and it's not a good transition so his I Can I throw it a crazy theory? The last probably won't actually happen. But it's to think about so in Nineteen Eighty S. Some things. I want to say Joe You can correct me Sigourney weaver was nominated for the sequel to a horror movie for Alien. Yeah there was eighty six. She had not been nominated for alien. Now Jamie Lee Curtis how hot off of nine out and a huge success hit. Halloween boot has a halloween sequel. Coming out and if that movie does really well a horror movie sequel while. She's kind of like should she's really back in a big way. Is there any way that Laurie strode? Aka Jamie Lee Curtis could get nominated for acting prize this year. It goes at a semester long got nominated for creed. Sure sure. Well I feel like if she was going to get that when she get it for the last one because it was like made so much money but it came out of nowhere and I think people were like not really expecting it. And then we have knives out kind of solidifying her return and I'm just wondering like if alien maids reverse star. But then she got the acting nomination for aliens like I don't know I'm just saying it's kind of a fun thing. I'm in favor of credits ever been nominated thing at some point. We're all going to realize that Jamie Lee Curtis has never been nominated for an Oscar. And we're GONNA WANNA fix that. I feel like I would love it. If knives out lake builds this entire momentum for everyone in that cast eventually Oscar nomination because I mean. I'm not sure that anyone any of the major players in that case had nominations Tony Clinton Michael Shannon but anyway get on Johnson. Get on. Get Chris Evans. Get Lucky stanfield. Just go through. The list told them you know. The the knives out bumped Richard I I was curious what your thoughts are on the Oscar prospects of the humans. I don't know much about the movie itself But You know. I've seen the play the writer of the play which is yes it is interesting and the cast is interesting in that. Like being Amy Schumer June Squibb. Like I kinda think them more comedy people and there is comedy in the film. But it's not or in the play rather but it's not is by no means a funny thing. I mean Stephen. Yen's presence is interesting. Richard Jenkins Jane Howdy. Shell reprising her excellent You know yeah. Turn in the In the play so I don't know that that's definitely could be intriguing. I guess my guess is that's going to be a fall festival kind of movie. Yeah I'm excited to see it. Well if you like August Sausage County is are warning on something like this but the humans is really different. Play much tighter not as like operatic thing and that cast think doesn't seem like they went for the big names that could get they like cast a little precisely there. I agree and it's you know what it could also do. If if it's good enough it could solidify Stevens chances for Monari. Which is the movie that won the Jury Prize at Sundance and is incredible and Stephen? Yan is amazing as this You know Korean immigrant. Father trying to make a better life for his family in Rural Arkansas. Like maybe he could have like a very good year with that kind of dual thing like where I kind of think that ad. Astra being just good enough got Brad helped pit get the Oscar for once upon a time in Hollywood. I JUST WANNA make sure I get my voice. Young sound clip. If it happens next year you agree agree with Richard. The momentum is here first your mental. We work on that. What do we think of the idea of Jessica chastain playing Tammy Faye Bakker Oh my God? I'm so glad you brought that up okay. I am intrigued I. She's South Carolina. Economy from South Carolina. Is Starting to by Michael showalter which I do not know what to make of because I like the big sick fine. I didn't think that his direction was like a huge part of that. His directing career has been kind of up and down will also got the Camille Nanjiani it's array comedy writer. Love Lovebirds. Yeah right yeah I mean I just got this. I think. Action movie on the docket this year so it feels like she's been quiet or at least not as visible. She had been so excited for her to kind of have a big year. Two I just I feel. It has such a potential. Were even if it's not like it could be at at worst campion fun. You know what I mean just like. I feel like if when Jessica's Jessica chastain who I think is always great but some in the movies or some people think she's bad like something like Miss Sloan. It's also great really watchable and really fun and I mean the is I also have Tammy Faye is just such a lake fascinating documentary to adapt into a narrative movie and Tammy Faye Bakker is such an interesting figure of like you know. She's sort of extreme. And but she's also you know there's a lot of pesos their ability and yet also liked the kind of religious moonshine represented. And there's a lot of angles to that. I also feel like show. Walter has actually kind of quietly been simmering with his actresses like sally field and hello. My name is North Hind Gut. Awards that year. Holly Hunter Obviously Got Awards. Buzz for the big sick and now maybe chastain is like the third charm that makes it actually happen because she's playing a real life person in the academy loves that so I don't know I don't I think this show altering is does give pas to Katie but like Maybe it's also there's a. There's a a positive spin to put on that also. Cherry Jones's fourth building. That movie just wanted to say. Well we Andrew Garfield Jim Baker. You'll be somebody that we are eternally rooting for Yup. Okay guys we're at the end. Let's put our money on the line and predict what will win best picture and best get makeup winner or an eight or nine issue. That is I mean so last year. I mean. Joe Pick Irishman Richard Piccolo. Women's you guys actually did pretty well so who wants to go I I go I go I So I know. I went with Netflix last year. With the Irishman as my sort of safe pick and that did deliver I think. The pecking order of the netflix movies. Last year was a lot easier to suss out at least at the top. I think we all knew that. Scorsese's movie was going to be their top priority. Just because of everything that had been going on in the in the Production of that movie. I think Scorsese kind of you know had Netflix by the ball. A little bit and good for him. He managed to get the release that he wanted. I think this year if David Ventures Manque can be one of the top two priorities for net flicks. I think it could be a really really interesting prospect. It's a movie about the screenwriter. Herman J Mankiewicz During the development of citizen Kane and if we talk about like Hollywood liking to honor movies about itself Lake. There's no bigger pat on the BAT. Then you know you made citizen Kane like you. Are the industry the created citizen Kane. And so Gary Oldman plays Herman Mankiewicz. He's a few years removed from an Oscar win which was like not the most lake raw raw celebrated Oscar win. Let's say of of all time and yet he's clearly seems to be an actor. Who's sweet spot with Oscar voters right now Deciphered in this movie playing Marian Davies tuppence Middleton Charles Dance the cast is pretty interesting. It's you know Fisher's back and adventure can come back in a big way in a movie that is you know very much in Oscar. Voters wheelhouse like this. I think it could be a very formidable formidable film. So you think that Netflix is going to win. Best Picture eventually. They just have to find again. Yeah Yeah I think so. I think the Irishman I think looking back. In retrospect I think the you know the flaws of the Irishman at least when it comes to being an Oscar winner are pretty apparent and that it was long. It was slow. It's very sort of like east coast. In a way that we always forget how West Coast insular the Oscars can be when I don't And I think you know ten nominations and no wins for the Richmond. Sort of like makes a lot of sense to me and I think something that feels a little more. Hollywood could definitely be you. Know a more of a mover for Netflix Richard. I'll make you go next okay. So kind of a long day Joe's lines about A beloved director finally having their their moment at the Oscars It's been six years since Wes Anderson got a bunch of Oscar. Nominations for best to tell his new one. The French dispatches star studded. I think it's more than likely going to premiere. It can. Yes it comes out in the summer which means it has a long runway but so the grand. Budapest came out even earlier. That came out in March and I don't know I just think that this could be the year to see a bunch of journalists working abroad. Making everyone feel good. I don't think the academy has gotten tired of Wes Anderson as evidenced by Budapest's success So that's what I'm calling for. I think the first thing. I think this is going to be Anderson's here. I definitely thought about that. It feels as quirky and like out there as so many of us Anderson Movies but GRANDPA bus had that kind of That sorrow at the center of it that I think is what made it really worked for. Oscars and Francis Patch seems to have a lot of potential for that too and Michelle mays. Incredible hair cannot be interested. Yes God east coast on the East Coast West Coast of I though like. I wonder if it's too New Yorker for California. We'll see I'm excited for it but I'm just saying that if employing half of the state than than maybe that's where it hits the tipping point enough. I will play my flag. I guess I mean I don't know I feel I. I kind of agree with Mike that I feel like as beautifully complete as this spreadsheet field from Joe I feel like I just don't I don't know it feels like we're missing something but anyway I'll go ahead with this work in the trial of Chicago seven It all is gonNA depend like how our own political narrative goes this year. But maybe it'll be something we need or want. I don't know I'm nervous about how we're all gonNa feel at the end of this year Regardless but yeah. That's what I will do the Sorkin I went. I've thought about Netflix. And making my choice and kind of went on the assumption that they won't win best picture this year just because it feels like it's endless. Epo for them. Maybe they have too many movies to focus. We really can't know yet. So in looking for my non netflix options. It was tough man. I mean most of the lake deal obviously obvious winters on here. Are Netflix movies? So I landed on those. Who Wish we did. Detailer shared in Western I feel like Angelina. Jolie could have a good moment. A Western has been a really popular. Oscars honoring the passing. Hell or high water. Got A best picture nomination as Kinda surprised summer hit. It's coming from Warner Brothers. They've got a good year. They'RE GONNA have their hands full. But I think studio movies have really been succeeding lately in this era of streaming as people kind of like want to hang on to the to the studios that built the town and Disney snaps up. Everything Warner Brothers is still manage. Managing we stand successful on its own I don't know i Mike might be the rightist of all of us but that felt like a fun one to dive in on Katie. Are you willing to go all in on Tyler Perry as a supporting actor contender? I mean at the rate that he works with the like yeah. I knew I like curveballs. He keeps throwing. It could totally happens. It could totally happen. Yes yes sheriff. Maybe he's so good in Congress but I I think the interesting thing about the studio Katie. I think you're right that the studios are well positioned right now and with you know my pick. The French dispatch That's with the newly dubbed searchlight formerly Fox and. I'll just be curious to hear how what was always the awards wing of Twentieth Century Fox and his. Now maybe the word the awards one of the wings of Disney How they that company within a company handles an awards campaign Under the ages of of Disney yet. We didn't talk about really Disney or Marvel Steph at all last year. I think we're fresh off a black panther kind of wondering what could happen. I mean all of the marvel stuff. This year is a little bit more out there in original Lena got terminals coming in the fall. So I'm curious. If Marvel becomes a factor again or if it's more proof that Black Panther a total fluke. Okay well I guess it does Joe. Thank you so much again for joining us. I really feel like a measuring my life in these episodes I can. I can listen to the previous years. It's it's it's something. I look forward to every year. Oh thank you. I love being on this episode. It's it's so much fun before we let you go. Joe I wanted to ask you You host the podcast. This had Oscar buzz about movies that once seemed like Shimmering Award. Essential right at Shimer went away. What do you think was the most? This had Oscar busiest movie of Twenty Nineteen of Twenty Nineteen Gosh I mean something like I mean my jokey answers. The aeronautics because the aeronautics is so funny that that had like in with What ended up with nothing. I mean you talk about something like something like hustlers or uncut gems or the farewell feels like unfair to sort of you know..
"oscars" Discussed on Little Gold Men
"This thing can I just also when I groaned about little women? It's not because I don't like Greta. Gerwig. I'm not interested in see that movie. It's just that like do we need another little. Women isn't a Gillian. Armstrong won from Nineteen ninety-four kind of perfect and You know like I don't know if we need. Meryl Streep is not March though but I think this could be. I think that could be a movie. That is a sort of fun. Good movie to see at Christmas. That maybe nevertheless doesn't become an Oscar player. And that's fine. You know what I mean like. Well Richard You beat me on that one and thank God. I don't know I don't know what what that was. Two men talking about not needing little men problem a little cut weeping at that movie. The first time and second time that I saw it might not to spoil our own pockets of my memory. Is that Richard? Little women as his best picture choice. He was interesting when we talked about little women. And basically this entire episode. We didn't really talk about female directors at all that we didn't talk about being factor of counterbalancing the maleness of the Oscars with it being such a story around it and I wonder I WanNa talk about that going into this next year Yeah we just kind of considered it along with everything else which is interesting given where it went all right. Let's move into broader conversation about our friends net flicks I wanted to start with the King by David Showed which is the reason Timothy. Chaumet had that terrible haircut last fall. it's Him and Ben Mendelsohn Thomasson Mackenzie of traces in it which is really exciting And I feel like in a way. That outlaw king felt like second or Third Tier Net flicks this year because Roma was such a big thing even after Roma there was like buster scruggs felt like the bt movie for Net flicks amend everything else including stuff like private life which I would have loved to have gotten more attention than it did. I feel like the king sitting on the bench behind the Irishman which is the Scorsese movie for Net flicks. They also have the laundromat which is soderbergh doing the Panama papers and they also have the last thing he wanted. Which is dee. Rees is movie after mudbound. Which is Anne hathaway and Ben Affleck? I WANNA say so like the King I feel like has a lot of internal competition within net flicks to sort of like become a movie that they're going to push for Oscar. Even if it's good yeah. I look forward to six months being furious. A half of something like private life not getting promoted by net flicks enough. It's inevitable that'll be the Noah Baumbach movie maybe that are in Noah Baumbach fashion. He won't give a title to until like the week before it opens good job. Joe Story titled Drama. I just wanted to use this as a way to like. Look back at how Netflix stuff panned out. I think the king wind up not being a factor in the way that we thought. But you know Netflix did kind of have the like eighteen issue again this year right. Yeah I mean I think marriage story DID PRETTY WELL FOR BEING BE TEAM. Actually just at least in terms of getting nominations. Maybe it was like a like a minus team right. Maybe if it was the their top priority may be you know driver could have had a shot although I mean probably not. That's wishful thinking to walking Phoenix. That thing wrapped up but You definitely had the sense this year that it was like Irishman marriage story and then everything else basically got forgotten justice for dolemite. I think they're a team ended up being when they saw movies Irish hand in marriage story. Yeah and and then I think they were caught by surprise as I was by how people in the world didn't like marriage story as much as you know they did. And as much as some early screeners Fisher. Yeah well when you look at. Netflix is on Oscar haul. Marriage story won a big Oscar and Irishman didn't so maybe it wound up being the ATM. After I know well we're petting ourselves on the back. I did I tweeted today. The Oscar nominations. I said Irishman's GonNa lose everyone of its ten nominations and everybody thought I was crazy. So I'll take that for whatever it's worth. Okay let's let's move onto the next one. You know a Fox searchlight movie. That's kind of a black comedy. Did well. They'll last year in the favorites. So I have my eye on Taika. Ytd's movie Joe Joe Rabbit Office which is set during the Holocaust essentially yeah And you know has Thomasson Mackenzie look at the you mentioned. Katie Winston Sam Rockwell takeaway. Td himself as I think that after Thor. Ragnarok people are like this is his movie could be his movie to sort of break into a sort of new echelon out of the sort of quirky like Phil Nerd. You know fan into something more something. Broader Jeb Richard. I wish I like the movie. But he did win an Oscar so good for me I guess like again I feel like these are opinions. That enough people had even being happier too much to ask for usually who said maybe it gets a screenwriting thing for this specifically so dead on all right now. We'RE GETTING TO THAT QUESTION. You had the beginning of all of this. Salmon is nineteen seventeen. Like when I write a war war movie used to be bread and butter Oscars But it's got George Mackay who I really love. It was great and captain fantastic and the brother things and Dean Charles. Chapman who maybe is the only actor in all of history to ever die twice on game of thrones with with Tom and Tom and before that he was a random Lancaster. Facts about gamma through anyway Mendis. I postponed movie. Yeah he's he's out of the bonds Jail not that not that you know. It's deeply unpleasant. But you know you stuck in a franchise for awhile. So here he is. He's back and it was golden handcuffs. The bond series. I wonder about this will will. How will it be greeted as like? Oh so Nolan. Had to go into dunkirk. And now you have this thing. Sam. Yeah I I wonder I mean I know. They're about very different. Wars will not very different but like different wars but Yeah you're right to point that out. I mean that's a big movie. That's coming out this year. Yeah isn't crazy to think that we could be here at all of us fully expected to be talking about nineteen seventeen is the best picture winner and now it's just a footnote. Thank you came very close and now I know how to pronounce his name. And we've learned so much less year. Hey you know who? He was at the beginning of the year. That's more than most unsettling. Yeah okay so now. We're getting to the point of last year's episode where we started making our best picture predictions. So we'll help Joanna's even though there's nothing about eight and history has not. Oscar is not looked kindly on this filmmaker Ryan Johnson knives out. I don't know I'm just not it. Seems like it's going to be nothing else really fun movie. We all right. What if I'm movie? It's the most right I was at the vet during that entire podcast. I mean eh. I remember this. I remember that I picked up for best picture. And the only reason they picked it. No offense to Ryan is because Richard picks a little women and that was my choice and so So I picked out and I was like all right to be so embarrassed by that pick and then when it was like started to get like screenplays well at least it will be nominated. And I'm won't be as embarrassed so it was nominated. I think he was the first person I texted. After seeing a tip at that big raucous premier that can I sat together for and I was very excited for you and for you know the filmmakers but for you that it was so good that that's my. That's my favorite kind of Texas. Katy at tiff telling me movies that I'm in love. I'm still waiting to see David. Copperfield them really. That's my best picture. Pick for twenty twenty. I didn't clip everybody's best picture predictions because it was a lot of stuff we talked about as well I picked the neighborhood. Joe Pixie Irishman Mike. You weren't on the episode. So I think you got away with not having to make a prediction but then I then I did jump into Richard's prediction which is little women. But also with the twist. Actually I was going to predict Parasite Wow Head you only been there been.
"oscars" Discussed on Little Gold Men
"Hi Katie our chief critic Richard Lawson and joining us once again because it is that time of year. Our friend and Oscar Oscar Soothsayer juried. Everybody thank you for having me. It is time for twenty twenty one Oscar predictions with. Yeah we're all completely sick of twenty seventeen movies. Even though Oscar season was so short Last year we did our twenty twenty Oscar predictions episode really late like the Oscars later. We waited awhile after it So now feels really early to be getting into it which will probably make our predictions even more off-base than usual. Really saying something chaos. So we're going to do our predictions for the year to come but first we also have to revisit our discussions of the past and how right or wrong we got it and once again Our producer Brett has pulled up audio clips from last year's episode. But I did want to start as I did last year with the movies that we did not mention once on the entire episode For the second row we did not mention the best picture winner. We did not talk about parasites. I don't blame US too much. Well it no one had seen that movie by then because that right because it didn't appear took and like based on bong-jin hose past record. Why in the world would you assume that his movie would be a Best Picture? Front runner well. Oakland had just missed the cut the last time for best supporting actor on the other hand titles surprised we didn't mention we didn't talk about the farewell at all Maybe we were underestimating. A little bit. How much it Sundance? Success was going to translate to the rest of the season. We didn't mention joker so I don't know when we really start taking that one seriously because I feel like from the moment people saw the trailers it was like. Oh boy best actor but At that point we had no idea I think is when they picked it to Premiere Venice. Yeah I was thinking too. Yeah Yeah And then a few other things that you know you win some you lose some. We didn't talk about versus Ferrari two popes Richard Jewel or hustler. Richard Jewell wasn't filmed until October. And thousand seventeen like my friend. Would you like to hear some audio clips of what we said last year? I di- TO ALL RIGHT BRET. Let's get it started. We'll maybe I'm writing the hot hand and I did such a A. I did well for myself in talking about. Can you ever forgive me last year? Which was directed by Marielle Heller? She is back this year with a beautiful day in the neighborhood. Which is a bio-pic of Fred? Rogers who I know. Oscar you know bypassed the documentary About Mister Rogers this past year but I also have gone broke before on predicting the Oscars to fall in love with Tom. Hanks the way they did in the nineties. But this just seems perfect. Well I got one. I was so nervous until the very end that they wouldn't go for Tom. Hanks because of what we were talking about I remember Captain Phillips. I still have those scars. Yeah but now that they needed him in the front row. I feel like this will be a thing now. Yeah I remember that like you need to have that sort of like a little bit of an anchor right there in a row and like Nicholson doesn't come anymore. So like yeah. It's time for the new. Nicholson sort of. Yeah do we have any final thoughts on? Why Beautiful Day in the neighborhood didn't take off quite as much as we wanted it to. As my best picture prediction which again never right But it did that one nomination for Hank's felt like a little for how much people love that movie. I think that movie really suffered from. Its release date you know. I think they dropped it about a week before Thanksgiving which was probably good timing but it was such a crowded year and the knives out came in sort of swept past as being the kind of go to choice for people who are stuck with family over the holidays and yeah I just think it. Kinda got lost. I spoke to a lot of people toward the end of December. Who you know. Pay attention to this stuff not closely as we do but closely and they really can't win. Does the Mr Rogers movie come out and I was like. It's been out for six weeks so I think it really suffered from that. I I also think coming so closely after the documentary which was so popular. Like I actually don't know many people who saw the hanks film And I think it was just because people felt like they really celebrated Fred Rogers so recently there was also some weird word of mouth on it. Like oh it's a Bayton switch. It's not really a movie about Mister Rogers movie about Tom. Juno and then it's like Oh well. I don't need to watch that. Yeah I think the appeal of it is a little unexpected and to me in a good way. It's not the movie that you think you're going to get and I think that can be a double edged sword where some people like to see a movie that they didn't think they were going to get because it's you know it's not to me. It wasn't the sort of like it wasn't the kind of sentimental movie that you were sort of expecting that other people they wanted you know. They wanted the documentary but acted out. It's actually didn't get that all right. Let's move on to another movie that turned out to be about the real people that we thought it was going to be about I'm always burn by going with my heart so I'm not going to go with my heart right now and I want to know what your heart is. Okay I could I could do. We can come back to that. But we can start with my head which says fair and balanced Yes the the the film about with Charlene's their own is Megan. Kelly and a Coke Gretchen. Carlson there we go. It didn't turn out to be like eight best picture nomination which I would have bet on that point unless you turn out to be fair and balanced. We're talking about bombshell for you. I'm so sorry I'm point. We also talked about it in the context of other whistle blower movies. Richard had pointed out a with the the laundromat which man we had our eye on that one it was. It was should have been a year for whistle blowers. But it just wasn't okay bombshell. That was their Another bio-pic Police Brett. I don't think this is going to get a best picture nomination or anything but I have a laser eye on renee. Zellweger is girl. I think that she's absolutely poised for a comeback role. I think she was at the Oscar Party the party. She looks fantastic I think it's it's time that's really interesting casting. Yeah it's about you know right at. The story is right at the end of Garland's life when she went to London to performance series of concerts. We've seen over the years that there is a lot. The academy is willing to forgive about kind of poorly ish made bio-pic movie if the central performance Allah Michelle Williams Maryland. Yeah is I don't even know if I would argue that the good performance but an interest to go on you know something to kind of our most forgiving toward exactly damn Richard. Your contract is renewed. I have currently on my computer monitor. I've posted says January Twenty Eighth Ritchie shot at Anthony Hopkins winning the Oscar Which is based on an earlier conversation? We had this year. I'm keeping it up on my computer until Oscar season but like man Richard. What if you call it two years in a row super early? That'd be so every police for you and Jellison and burning with envy as well feel like. I forgot to mention when I talked about the father from Sundance. That Anthony Hopkins is playing. Liza Minelli in that movie. Is The story so casting me? We're all clamoring for. I wish I could take credit for for that prediction but I mean I feel like I was by no means alone in that. I think that like the minute that trailer came out or even like the first glimpse it was like if nothing else. She's a strong strong contender. I have two other strong feelings about this coming year in a similar way that I will. We get to When when it's time good teaser. Okay let's get get to the next prediction on the list. I want to make sure we hit any other. Eight hundred pound gorillas that are kind of looking at us that seem like inevitable things that will either. We'll be talking about Regardless whether or not they actually get dominations the obvious to me and because the poster just came out as much on time in Hollywood the Quentin Tarantino Movie Talking about movies. That will be problematic and driving. Everyone crazy on twitter. We're never going to stop talking about this right true. Although Bruce Lee and his daughter as being the main thing that we I re watched the movie and was kind of surprised at how little we talked about some of the problematic shit and I perfectly honest whatever for our attentions elsewhere in terms of In terms of controversy. I think that movie was far less of Of An annoying sort of lightning rod it during the season. Then I kind of thought it would be and I was kind of ready for. I think I was ready for the fight about the final scene in about how violent and sort of off pudding that final scene is and how you know whether it should or shouldn't be and we don't have to have that argument right now but yeah. I think you're right Mike I think I was. I think I was surprised by that movie. Just sort of like kind of slid down the middle a little bit. Yeah and the second time through. You know what really stood out to me was defeat. Everyone's dirty really notice that the first time through a second Jesus intentional that throws definitely lamb shading his reputation. the Yeah I think Tarantino Joker for drying yes yeah Right around the time time in Hollywood. Open anything joker got added to the lineup. And we're like Oh boy and it went from there and also we mentioned a lot in this conversation the poster that was released. I don't remember there being like a controversy about this poster being so bad it's just that shot of printing to capulet standing in front of the Hollywood hills anyway. That was the thing that we were upset about. This March Okay now we got another Right on the money actor prediction. I wanted to bring up one thing and it's more of a performance than the movie but like I wanted to get out ahead of it just in case it does happen but pater mode movie. Pain and glory is a sort of Reunion for him. With Antonio Banderas said Antonio Banderas plays a film director in it who sort of like looking on his life and career sort of it seems not unlike nine eight and a half which right yes exactly Will but yeah thank you. I was very happy that nomination turned out. And not just because it would have meant that I was right on this podcast but also it was a great performance and it was you know it was time for Antonio Banderas to have his first Oscar nomination such a feel good story to have him in the mix. I think everyone wind up being exactly excited to nominate him as you predicted back then all right next one.
"oscars" Discussed on Give Them Lala ... with Randall
"Was going to check my schedule before. I agree to this then I realized by Nieves in the Title I by the way. I'm going to be very serious. I'm very honored that you wanted this show to be about me which I better ratings are going to drop and went to lots of followers but the means a lot to me personally that you're having me on the show as I guess. I have heard you speak many times about your journey in Hollywood. I think it's brilliant. I think it's inspiring and every time I hear it it's like I've heard it for the first time ever so I'm very excited to interview you. Baby Oh God very nervous. Who's your I'm going to be nice because now you're not my fiance. You're my guest okay. So last night you attended the Oscars for the Irishman and by the way I tend to the myself alone because you were flying back from working on a film so I I so yes I went I wide and go along went with Ama- the producer of Irishmen and and a big group of us in our a D David Webb and a whole bunch of a lot of people who were like those people with those people. Yup I went with the whole production team. Everybody was involved. Yeah what was that like for you? So I've been to the Oscars a couple of times before never in this position like we're best picture nomination. It's a weird thing the whole day. Surreal because you remember as a kid. You Watch the Oscar as you have Oscar viewing parties. Everybody talks about even if you're not in the movie business. You WanNa see the Oscar right so you you the tickets come. You're you're looking at it. You're like wow. We really maybe could win the oster. Obviously we didn't win but so I don't know I got ready at one o'clock you got. The car went over a met. Everybody it was. I was really excited. I didn't I didn't really have expectations of his time. Yeah just because I think I have more fun without expectations and we went through the security checks and we got to the red carpet and it's just amazing. It's like the red carpets like a mile. Long right there's thousands of interview journalists toddlers. There's over prime biggest in Hollywood biggest thing. I was like Prom night here but even more than that One of the funniest moments does too funny moments but unlocking the red carpet with everybody all the producers and the team and whatever. I'm just taking in. I'm instagram me. I'm like trying to get that up here. You know and as I'm walking past like they have a risers with five hundred fans just getting the as I'm walking by and I thought it was a joke. I hear something like ran rent and I'm like wow they know the I'm like of successful producer and I and I look up and there's like a couple of and I was like hi waving like that I am and they're like where's La. La For real vander. Prompt rules is followed me to the Oscars night. So is so huge range. I knew I knew you were GonNa get off on that so that was pretty cool. Because I was nice that anybody recognize me for that but as your fiance so that was really sweet. I missed you. Another funny moment is spike. Lee was doing an interview on ABC. Yes at everybody was blow me up standing amazing because it was it was like my Meryl Streep moment at the Sag awards YouGov Spike Lee. Who was wrapping Kobe Bryant? So hard you know we produce knows him well and they shook hands set alone introduced himself to me and I was just like what I say. You're like my hero. He's like one of my favorite directors from. She's gotTa have it for do the right thing you know it'd be. This is one of the most iconic filmmakers so and then he was reading moby super familiar with film. I mean I'm getting to be because you're doing my fiance but even I know who that is. Missed a spike but he was rubbing Kobe. What a beautiful outfit. He really. It was amazing so anyway. So you get in there. And you're you're on the recovery doing all that you're on there for like almost an hour and then we get inside and you're starting to walk up and you see the Oscar statues and it's just like it's really surreal when you're there the whole experience because it's almost like oats and other award show but it's it's not like another award. Don't you know it's hard copy like when you watch it on TV it's the Oscars right when you're there even though you know it's Oscars I don't know if that makes sense doesn't register because you're like to overwhelmed? Dolphin was so unless you're seeing every movie star. You grew up with walking by. You can't even imagine because I went with you to Vanity Fair and even that was like shit like these are real celebrities. I can't believe I'm in the same room that they're in like I wouldn't even do the carpet Vanity Fair because I was so intimidated by just the whole thing. Yeah I mean so so I think for me you know you're just honoring our work and all that stuff so No I think I tried to like. I'm overwhelmed I mean I'm sitting with the greatest filmmakers in the world. I'm sips for me. I grew up on Spike Lee. Grew up Martin Scorsese. I grew up on on De Niro Pacino. Pasha always so for me. I'm like Oh my God. I'm here with my own movie. It's hard to register but once you get past all that then you just try to enjoy the show and you know look. I knew it was a long shot. We were GONNA win so there was no expectation there but you know you really are just proud to say. Wow we look where we came from. We're all here celebrating this night. Take it all in. Try to be in the moment. And that's what I did and then was cool because then I got to meet up with you and we went to Vanity Fair which you do have this thing Which people probably don't know what's called a high level anxiety social anxiety and sometimes you're good for about eleven minutes at an event this was. This was that night about two hours to get ready and I stayed for all of forty five minutes. Maximum Mac we buy. It might have been third back to you my sweet guests but then we went to vanity fair and that was awesome. We were with Marty and we're with. Everybody had this incredible night. But what I would like to ask you. How did you get to where you are today? Like your journey when you were a young kid. Now you're at the fucking Oscars how that happened to be honest. You know how that happened because I heard the story. We'll get lucky. Lucky lucky you worked hard. Listen you got a little lucky and you meet some special people are look in a nutshell. You're right you work hard. You have to put in the work. You have to take the disappointment for many many years of just struggling and trying to make it and that's kind of what happened. When I went to film school in New York City I produced by first feature. When I was in college I moved out to Los Angeles with no money. I slept on my friend's couch. I you know had a nickel to my name and you know just how to figure it out and so I was an assistant then at a talent agency and from there I worked for my best friend. Mark Wahlberg WHO AKA Marky mark and. He gained the job when I really really was down and out. Was that your first job in Hollywood with with Mark. My first job was at. Icm Talent Agency Resin Assistant. Okay then I and mark and I had become friends just through mutual friends and he had asked me to work for him so when your parents decided I'm cutting you off those bad day? That was a bad day. Was that when you went out and got a job at ICM. Yeah my parents were like shipping me a little bit of money every month to keep me going. But then they had given me like six months shout. I was very lucky that I had parents. That label to help me out because a lot of people don't have that so I was very lucky but I was also probably maybe a little lazy a little into going out more rally people are when they come to. La Get caught up. You get caught up so I think it was a little caught up and so my parents gave me about six months. Shout out. I didn't believe him because I thought I just keep going. And then the month that it was all supposed to end they call me up and I said listen about to get addicted and I have a notice for my car being repossessed. I need a little cash right. You just helped me out and they said we have been telling you for four or five months that you need a fulltime job and I would say you don't understand I'm trying to be a producer and I'm trying to raise money and I'm trying to do this and I'm trying to put it all together and you don't understand if the network I have to go out to the nightclubs and network meet these trust fund kids and they'd be buying bottles and Oh my God to give me a million dollars for a movie. Of course two million to three million of course drunk when they're telling you this beyond trust funds probably you know ten grand a month whatever it was and you know they were leading me on and I wanted to believe whatever they were telling me so that that day came. I'll never forget my. My mom reminds me to this day. If I could read Brian the clock I would not say the things I said but it was out of desperation. I was scared I was desperate. I was and so I call my parents up. They call me sorry. After I had set up we need to talk about. I need a loan for this month. And they called me up and they said we love you very much and they and listen I am so pre I wanna just prefaces because I want to come off as some swilled kid. I had parents that worked hard and provided me and was very lucky. They were able to support me and put me through college very appreciative. But what I want to say now. Is that at that time? I needed the rent and so I called him and they said we're not. We're not doing it. We're not paying the rent and we're not paying your car payment and you're going to need to figure it out. We asked you for three months to get a fulltime job right. You have told us all the things I told them and we are stopping it today and I said they didn't care if you've got a victim they notice is on like the two because I thought for sure they're gonNA come through. Yeah so now they victim me. They picked up my car that went away and I had nothing so I moved upstairs to my friends place. My.

"There was just straight ahead big jazz handy. Musical numbers at the beginning of the Oscars and some of them were fiasco. Some of them are actually pretty fun. And this was a attempt to kind of draft off that old school vibe with something that is very very new right engine specifically called out you know the whiteness of the Oscars. Yes some of that stuff. She's she's very outspoken. To say the least in the best way well and also even in the casting of the dancers the fact that they had movies like Queen Slim and US and midsummer. There seem to be a certain amount of like. Let's acknowledge these movies. That should have probably been nominated needed and were yeah absolutely. I think you know over the course of the evening. You saw a lot of as you've mentioned those efforts to kind of what are we going to do in the ceremony about the lack of diversity in the nominations which you can't really do right it's you know the judge and the People's Court always says it has eye itching over here and you're scratching me over there. Oh she doesn't in Spanish. It sounds much better It's this kind of you can't really solve a problem in your nominations and awards with the content of your ceremony. But they are they have. I've tried right. You had talked about a lovely speech from TYCO. I T in which he talked about indigenous kits. This is really great. Dedicate those two. Syra indigenous kids in the world. Do want to do art and dance and write stories original storytellers and we can make it to you as well. Thank you killed. He also did Something that was very anew that's never I've never seen on the Oscars but I've seen it in other places. Ace is gone and I have both seen it at the Toronto Film Festival among among other places that they do it which is a a land acknowledgement. And it's when you talk about the U. acknowledged the Indigenous people who resided on in some cases still reside on the land where the ceremony or the event or whatever it is taking place and that was unusual for the Oscars I the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences would like to acknowledge that we have gathered on the ends of the Tonga the Tataviam And the Chew Mush knowledge them as the people of this land on which rich I'll motion picture community lives and Works Modiano so yeah so those are some of them. What other awards you guys WANNA highlight? I think the most predicted predicted win of the night was probably Roger Deacons and cinematography for for nineteen seventeen that sort of fit into everything kind of fitting on rails. I was delighted to see hair. Love Win Best Animated Short That is such a charming short film. It or kit bull could have one night have been delighted. They're both terrific and on Youtube job. I also appreciated the way you know. Glenn mentioned the the taking out the part where you're introducing these nine films and how that frees up space for other things one thing that freed up space as for that I really appreciate. It was that it allowed them to show kind of longer clips of performances which I always welcome and a segment. Where are they played out longer? Stretches of the scores of the nominated best original scores than they usually play. I appreciate the fact that they clearly wanted to get a little bit more performance in there and also whatever you think of long rambling Oscar speeches. I I do not like it when orchestras play people on the fact that they had a little bit of wiggle room to show the speeches like these people. Winning the awards are technically. Why were watching? My favorite moment of the night is probably when during the speeches for best picture for parasites they turned out the lights on these people who deserve to be there are these producers and the audience revolted in terms of Wins that I really like you know I I it was I guess after feeling that great inevitability about once upon a time in Hollywood earlier this summer and just feeling like this. Momentum is unstoppable for it to only win Brad Pitt as supporting actor and production design after all this stuff was nominated for was kinda surprising again. A little women's only victory All evening long was costume design. You kind of expected that was going to happen because they are suckers for a bustle and they do love of bustle. So that was good to see I would have loved some screenplay. Love there too. Yeah Yeah Yeah I I think for me you know. We talked in our Rabah last year. By the fact that if you don't have a host it matters a great deal who the winners are and to have this. This film that I really love led by this extremely charismatic director. It makes a big difference because all of a sudden you feel like you're watching something that over and over over again feels good and none of these particularly felt bad to me and so on the whole a pretty satisfying evening. I thought absolutely topped off by being right. We'll see that's the thing like if you come to these things wanting some surprise you didn't get it until really the very. Oh Yes yes the parasites a little winds here and there that was encouraging but it was just such an out of left field really not not so but that was like. That's the drama this thing and for most of the evening there was drama because going according to plan the cannon need at least one surprise you know and I think it's fitting parasite pulls off a surprise movies. got a few too so very much enjoyed it myself coming find us on facebook at facebook dot com slash P.

"It's twelve fifty six. Am and we are wrapping up. The Ninety Second Academy Awards parasites took home the Oscar for best picture. The first time ever a film not in the English language has won the prize. I feel like a very opportune. A tune. Moment in history is happening right now. Parasite also won awards for best director international feature and original screenplay acting awards. Went as expected to Brad Pitt. Laura dern Joaquin Phoenix and Renee Zellweger. I'm Stephen Thompson and I'm Linda Holmes. We're wrapping up. The Oscars was on pop culture happy hour from NPR. So don't go away what's good yo as you know. February is black history month and all throughout that month. NPR's codes which is going to be running a special series about the history of black resistance because as long as black folks have been oppressed in this country. which is you know forever? We've also been fighting back. Listen and subscribed welcome back just met. NPR Music Stephen Thompson. Also also with us at this late hour as Glen Weldon the NPR arts desk. Hi Glen so you guys we gotta talk about parasites you might remember in in this space are also and in a piece published on NPR and in our newsletter. I told you I thought parasite was going to win invest picture. That didn't lose my nerve. This time you were right I was wrong in fact you were right in. I had pre written a nine hundred. Seventeen takes everything kind of new spot for NPR. And I had to rewrite the damn good well not happened with With moonlight as I recall when moonlight won a couple of years ago we had to rewrite everything but parasite one Not only did it win. Best Picture which I think it richly deserves but As we mentioned in the intro at one for its screenplay at one for its directing it won best international international feature. It's not just that it won four Oscars. It's that at one. Four of the big most important ones you can possibly win and and it gave us the opportunity for three Bongino speeches all of which were absolutely delightful. And let's give that guy credit right like not everybody. Everybody who's up for a bunch of Oscars comes in with three discrete delightful things to say but he. He gave three speeches kind of from three different angles. It made the night feel so much less monotonous that it could have been it could have felt even though the outcome is delightful right because the evening they had been running on rails for a long time. A lot of I don't know if prognosticators are just getting better at gaming the system and figuring it was going to win but everything that we thought was going to win was winning. Yeah the only surprises of the night around parasite yeah. I also appreciated the fact that He mostly spoke in Korean with his wonderful interpreter. The Sharing Choy. Who's been with him this whole season but he also would give a few English sentences just kind of four effect which I enjoyed a great deal including the classic? I will drink until next morning. Thank you I will drink the next morning. Thank you and and he also switched over to English when he pointed out that this is the first Oscar when he won screenplay you pointed out it was the first Oscar ever are four South Korean film writing a script as always such a lonely process. We never right to represent our countries but this is very first car to South Korea Korea. Thank you so yeah that guy. Is that guys a lot of fun to listen to. I thought his tributes to the other directors which kind of Martin Scorsese's year genius. He is. Thank you so much. When I was young and studying cinema there was a saying that I carved deep into my heart which is the most personal is the most creative coumarin that quotas from our great Martin Scorsese so finally finally somebody has validated? Martin ended with this like also same Phillips. You're also here but I just. I thought it was delightful to watch to watch him be on such a a role. Yeah a lot of fun so we need to talk about some other categories as much as I would love to talk about parasite all night long among the acting categories. Were exactly what everyone expected. Brad Pitt for once upon a time in Hollywood Laura dern for marriage story Renee Zellweger for Judy and and Joaquin Phoenix. For Joker. I would say those were all pretty expected except idea. These Zellwegger in Phoenix speeches is. Yeah we're both. I was sure that the way he was going on. They were going to cut her off really quickly and I was wrong. Not cut her off so he is included. Among other things. A little discussion of cows. We feel entitled artificially inseminated a cow and and when she gives birth we steal her baby even though her cries of anguish on mistake and then we take her milk. That's intended for calf off and we put it in our coffee and our cereal so that was him right. I don't think I expected to hear the word insemination. No no and hers. Words at one point just became her listing a lot of famous people. She admires when we listen to our heroes. We agree And that matters. Neil Armstrong Sally ride to the rest. SERTA Venus and Serena and Selena. Bob Dylan AH Scorsese Tread Rogers. Harriet Tubman if ever you were going to rehearse a speech that you could bounce a quarter off of. It's when you know you're going to win. Best Actor or best actress and yet they kind of went up there and they didn't sound like they were winging it exactly inside Ashby were rambling but it seemed like practice rambling. This is what I was doing in the mirror. Made clear like I'm into figuring out something meaningful to say or Acceptance Acceptance Speech for sure. I just think they both came off a little bit like they were. Yeah like it was practiced rambling. I WanNa talk about a few other categories that that went. I thought very much as people expected toy story. Four was best animated feature American factory. which is the net flex one produced by among others the the OBAMAS on for documentary feature Steven Tell me about the music awards? Best original score went to Hiller daughter for joker. That was kind if as expected. That is a terrific score for all that movies faults. I think the music really sets the tone and the mood in that film. She gave a lovely and gracious speech each to the girls to the women to the mothers daughters who hear the music bubbling within. Then please speaker we need to hear your voices and then for best original song again. Dan More or less as expected as much as it seemed kind of going into the award season like into the unknown from frozen to Mike kind of just get that. Let it go coronation but Etan. John's I'm GonNa love me again. Though I thought his performance of it fell really flat. Yeah he and Bernie Taupin won that award going away. Yeah so we got to see the the Performances of all the songs we also got a musical performance. That was not one of the song. So Glenn you and I both talked about these sequence. It's that led up to this performance while this year didn't have a host they also Didn't do that thing where they introduce the nine nominees for best picture on just is having people come out there and address and say this is parasite now that That left a lot of room. Little wiggle room there. But what they fill that wiggle room with was a lot of strange introductions options introductions introduction so they have somebody like Anthony Ramos introduced Lin Manuel Miranda who introduced a montage. WHO's point seemed to be that some movies have songs in them that wasn't itself induction to eminem performing? Lose yourself from eight mile which won best song. Eighteen years ago years ago. Yeah thousand three ceremony after coming out in two thousand and two exactly. What's even pointed out? Is that knowing that there was an Obama. White kind of Pool of nominees. They seem to be pulling pulling from people of Color. Women Queer folk to kind of be covered filigree around the edges of the ceremony in some of those multiple layers. And some of those mufflers. I just like here's the introduction to an introduction to instruction at one point Tom Hanks who was you know big White Guy Introduced Museum is introduced by another white guy was the president of the academy. Just a lot of dead air that that just didn't feel like it needed to be and we're out of chronological order. But the opening you mentioned the lack of a host the opening where you would normally have you know the monologue in the musical number. Whatever they did have both of very traditional Oscar? I mean in some ways a very traditional Oscar Z.. Opening musical number but it was performed by June. Now Monet who sort of the most modern and cool person you can possibly get yet and billy porter and the NBA reporter doing this. It's a wonder full-time song. It's a real Janelle Janelle monae song. But but it's still was in the end. She surrounded by dancers. Who are dressed in costumes saluting various films of the year? Sure Ah Denson Denson World War One soldiers yet. Denson a stop along. You had queen and slam dancing queen dance and slim dancing jokers. Sure children pay attention. There used to be a time of billy crystal kind of doing this big number. It's a wonderful night for Oscar and it was just him before that right before we learned about irony.

"It's really really important. It's storytelling did you see a difference. In the American coverage in the British coverage for example in in the way they portray or perhaps because they're a little bit more outside. Well okay on on the ground in L. A. The coverage is very different It's a lot more locally informed and you get a lot more of the politics of this in Britain you get a lot more of the critical side and also a little bit of the gossip. That's another thing that's very important. I say politics I do mean gossip on their level in Britain. You will get more of an esoteric more critical more about an informed view in La. It's an industry town Hollywood. It's all about who's GonNa going to win. And how is that going to enable their future. Karen tell us about your Oscar scheduled to preserve. COURSE YOU WATCH I. I've seen a few Oscars view than I mean. That's the night for you. Don't sleep basically it's like a when there's an election in the US or something important because you're in the UK. We have to tell listeners if ends about five thirty in the morning okay. Yes every every Oscar that that I've spent in in Britain it's been quite a few you stay up all night and you watch moment by moment because you can't of course course get the list of the winners the next day but it is how it happens. How the production is because again as I said it's industry town? So how is the production action going. How's the host Chris host this year? Who is presenting? What are they going to say? Did they repeat any any speeches from from the Golden Globes and it's an all night thing and it's it's it's wonderful. It's like waiting for Santa Claus in a way. It's a huge gift all night long. And it's worth staying up with. Of course you feel terrible the next day but it doesn't matter because you're excited sided usually. I'm very elated about the winners. Because this is important for filmmakers it's important for designers and actors if you nominated needed really wants your nominated that's kind of the best place to be because a winner. You've you've won and that's kind of. It's almost a poison chalice. Sometimes because what are you going to do next. That's a very good point and let let's talk about the film's itself this year. Do you have favorites or do because you know I think the acting categories I I mean we kind of know who's going to win right. I mean it's been quite established but I don't know do you do disagree with me. Yeah I think it is pretty sewn-up granted. I've noticed that. There was one year where I stayed in Britain for most of the season and then I flew over and did the Oscars over in La and what people we're talking about with very very different. And that's why I think it's so important not so much online but what gets into print they have to be a little bit more careful what gets into print I think You can't change it once. It's there but this year I think it's going to follow very closely to the baptist. I don't know about parasite how much that's the one thing I don't don't know how much love parasites getting over in La. I know here. It's pretty huge. But the variables I mean I would have loved Cynthia Revo to have to win in the best actress nomination. Best female actor. I think we're saying now but she actually deserved it for previous films. But this it's almost like the true grit thing you know. This happens all the time. This happens with John Wayne and he gets awarded for the next film when they realize that they've made a mistake. In fact I I've pitched over and over again again. A television show called. Give it back. which is where we look historically and see? That wasn't the best film of that year. That was that's an amazing chosen. And what's the best thing to drink. Watching the Oscars the best thing watching the Oscars of courses champagne unless you're rooting for the The British contingent and then it's English sparkling and I would suggest you choose from Hampshire because they're ten beautiful vineyards there. There was carrying Crisanto. Vich there if you to hear me and Karen talking about the Oscars results June into the globalist live on Monday the ten for February at seven. Am London time. That's twenty three hundred. La Time and finally on the show. I like to think that I have a pretty decent sense of Who Be picking up the statuettes Sunday night but our next guest well really should know best Benzon mors job is to predict award shows like the Oscars using maths? His latest book Oscar metrics the math behind the biggest night in Hollywood is a delight full of stats to delight fuel nerds and lay movie watchers alike. Ben Began by telling me why the best editing Kathy is. The best predictor of the best picture winner. That's right in terms of which nomination you get if you're a best-picture contender best film. Editing is actually the single most important I love all of the Oscar coverage out there some of it like mine is mathematical apparatus. Others is more based on an industry. Feel and I think it all has its place is all very fun but my lane. My Gimmick has always been to use hard data. Dan Statistics to try to the uncover hidden truths about the academy to win. The idea for the book came out that started after graduating college. In two thousand fifteen. I thought aww fun to maybe get to tell Oscar stories using data in a bit more than two hundred eighty characters at a time which I was confined to on twitter and so my goal with this book was not to write a statistics textbook but instead to write a series of interesting stories interesting findings about the Oscars that any movie Fanconi thank enjoy but have those findings and stories be influenced by the math in front of me. Do you have a favorite cathy. Green away for some reason. I quite enjoy best actress. You know. I think it's quite interesting and especially because the Oscars are so male-dominated so even some of the nominations are from films that are sometimes sometimes not on best picture but you have one for example. It's a great question if I had to name one it would actually be best original screenplay so for me. I've sometimes joked with friends. I get so focused on a plot when I watch movies that if I were an Oscar voter my votes for best picture and best original screenplay would be the same in most years not every sometimes there is something about some movie that it's so well produced or directed or acted something that's outside of the screenplay they can vaulted in the first place for me. Because I just love a good story. That's the category that care about almost as much as best picture. Well I think he's a very good categories whereas all best original screenplay tell me I mean most of the time I presume you very right But do you. Do you feel surprised. Perhaps recently about some of your choices that went completely against your math of who is going to win and if you can name a few examples absolutely so ultimately what math is doing it's figuring out the probability that every nominee wins and these probabilities are never zero percent. One hundred percent sometimes life the thing with the lower probability ability wins. It's what we call them upset. It's what makes the Oscars So a really. Classic example of this in recent years was the best picture race between Lala Land and Moonlight Lowland Lowland as you may recall one everything that year. One the baptism and the producers guild the directors guild in the screen actors and it seemed like a surefire bet to go Juan and win best picture but it wasn't sure fire it wasn't one hundred percent and moonlight came from behind and pulled off the upset and it made for one of the most exciting moments in Oscar history even independent of the envelope. The ASCA what about this year. Are you feeling confident about your choices can never be too confident certain categories. I feel I feel competent in the categories. Where all of the precursors lineup so all four acting categories really fall into that group this year or best international feature the new name Foreign Language Bill Pretty much? Everything from across the globe is parity so categories. Like that yes I I feel a fairly confident best cinematography. Nineteen seventeen is another one. Where all precursors lineup but for the majority who have no I would not say I'm competent in many categories? The front runner is actually below fifty percent to win. Meaning it's more likely to front runner loses than wins. We don't know which of this place nominees are going to pull off the upset. And Ben you just released this incredible book about the Oscars Lot of Trivia Finke. I'm sure a lot of listeners would enjoy that. What about throw the year? Do you do that with other entertainment events or are you just kind of Diaz Command. I do in terms of predictions I predict to award shows which are the Oscar's as well as the tonys for Broadway and then I also tweet out plenty of Trivia facts for many many other award shows whether the Emmys the grammys or all of the the film award the lead up to the Oscars say it's a year round hobby but definitely one that kicks into high gear around Oscar season. There was Ben's ause Moore author of Oscar Matrix tricks. The book.
"oscars" Discussed on Deep Background with Noah Feldman
"You know y y you yeah well I wrote the script before the metoo movement began in. Its most populous form so prior to Harvey Weinstein. I've actually finish about three two months before the Harvey case broke fast. Worry Yeah Yeah so so so I wrote over that you know just after the election over that spring so in a way there there was no one telling that story at the time. Had Harvey's situation occurred I probably would not have written. It probably not sold out of produce thought. Oh this issue is getting traction that I don't have to So part of it's just you know this feeling that no one was saying telling the story and it needed to be told and that's by the way something that the public just isn't that aware of the they see a film coming out now a couple years after me too and they think Oh. This was two movie not realizing it just takes a long time to the other. A film like forever contracts alone take eight months plus legal vetting on a film like this. It just takes forever. So part of your answer is when you start doing it. There wasn't a me too. Yeah but but but that's that's a cop out. I think there's a you know. Let's let's address. The real problem is should men be telling these stories and I go back and forth myself right. Partly yes there. I'm also writing men in these situations and getting that right getting that accurately matters for helping us understand this and certainly the other thing is my greatest. Desire is to put men in those rooms like the situation in the film between Margot Robbie is character Kayla and Roger ailes because if I can put men in those rooms they can see how these situations are a extremely complicated and can be utterly life changing. I have found in my own life a tendency when these narratives pop up to be a little dismissive in an almost instinctual way. It's almost as though you know the minute I hear one of these stories. I have this Darwinian thing to say. Yeah but you know. She went into that office about Mmediately have that thing comes up that voice in my head. That masculine protective served gender defensiveness. And so I wanted to. I wanted to interrogate the part of myself. As you know as I say I wanted to drag my own prejudices through a gauntlet of real lives and sort of sort of examined on them and so I I guess I hope that in showing those situations to men around the world I am doing the greater good and that I am willing to accept the critique that there probably is someone who could have told this story better who is woman But you know she had not yet emerged in so I did what it could. So it's interesting. They're they're sort of two strands. One is the educative part. Yeah and Strand too. I thought was the internal part the part where every artist is to some extent grappling with his or her own internal voices and internal demons. And I think what you say is I think it's true. Shortly of the great majority of men and very possibly have just about all men that they will instinctively even if their consciousness has been raised. Identify with other men or wanted deny the depths and extremity of you know what reality tells you I mean my version of that would be just time after time during the two processing that guy that guy now that guy you know just to myself at a certain point I realized you know you know you just don't know what matter capable right right. Just you know maybe you have your own superego has developed in certain kind of guilt consciousness but maybe not everybody's you know but the point is just a recognition that. I share that that same kind of gender protective instinct. I think we we have it right. I think though that the left critique from a strong feminist would go after both of these things by saying we'll education is great but couldn't you picked another story to do it all right. We're you know. Why is this educating men using the story of women as their instrument and then on the personal thing they would say well? That's it except that they would accept that are always involve some self exploration but they WANNA see the film that would emerge if that self exploration was from the woman's perspective rather than the men's and then they would point to the industry and say well maybe no one had emerged. But maybe that's because women were denied the opportunity you know for their voices to emerge and they would be right right on both counts in my book ride down and I would like to think that our film is moving the ball down the field right and that someone else can come along and say okay. Here's this film. It was made for thirty. He's GonNa make you know fifty sixty million worldwide so there is you know there's a door open there that we can prove these stories. There's an audience for these stories And so that so that we are. We are Delicately laying the foundation for you. Know the quintessential me to movie to come along three four five six years from now totally done by women running. And when someone writes the Harvey Weinstein bio-pic it will be a woman. I think I think the two people that are hired for that picture. I think they're to project are both women to write. It makes that real life. That's already happening. Plan B's got one and then there's another one out there too right and there's also a film on Indie film coming out About a assistant harvey's live so so there are other things coming for sure. And it's but it's part of part of this broader conversation about how we are going to reach some version of parody behind the camera. At how can we do that as ruthlessly efficiently and quickly as possible? You see that playing out in the Oscar conversation right now but but you know I'm more than willing to take whatever criticism comes by virtue of of of just wanting to do whatever we can help situation. Were there other critiques beyond the Gender Identity? One that struck you as meaningful ones. Well you get what we get. A lot of is furstration that the film does not take Megan to task more for her complicity in the broader culture. I say Fox right. It's a little difficult because what I wanted to avoid was making it sound as though right wing ideology creates necessarily a context for harassment. As we know that's not true this is happening in every office around the country right Really the end of the day. A lot of people wanted the race issue to be addressed and I struggle with this. I had early drafts where you know. I tried to address it. There's a sort of a famous bookkeeping office where things got pretty dark over at Fox and there were a couple lawsuits of race based harassment. I tried to have Roger Walk into one of them. One at one point. You know all this and it just never worked felt like we were undermining the issue of harassment itself. Until I came up with this thing I was convinced was genius some years. How is going to solve this problem? Four five six times in the film an African American individual at wandering frame and they would see the camera they would have sort of privileged gay of the sort of context of production so to speak and they go sorry back out right and so the idea that anytime an African American person was introduced into the frame they would be. Oh sorry just leave the frame to suggest that this is subtly comedic a not very Communally a environment absolutely hostile to that perspective. Now in saying that you already know what I discovered in the editing room with Jay. Which is this was a very bad idea made. It look like they were saying that. The movie was a white movie rather than that Fox News was a white people's environment a it was hard to read the intent. But the fact you're asking the audience to read the intent of the moment already suggests problems right you know and it was one of those things that was either confusing are just it just felt like it was the disease purported to cure you know yes and so so at the end of the day both the structural things. I tried to do to address race at Fox and the playful. Things I try to do just didn't work so that's you know you do what you can thankfully it's you know it's a medium that's Is Slow but but we have the ability to correct our mistakes and we just took out and and and you know now you can as critics do complain about their non addresses pressing the race issue. So you mentioned the Oscar context right and I think that's a great topic to talk about here. Is there a revenge or reaction or blowback moment coming from the men in the Oscar nomination process? I think using that now right I think this. This season is very male driven with a lot of films addressing sort of male identity and revisiting male identity. And part of that I think is the fact that a certain core group of filmmakers who obviously Make movies about strongly. Male issues are making their films But Yeah I think I think a little bit of a broader cultural blowback against me too and I think the film season this year. Riff flex that in some ways. Yeah I WANNA talk about some concrete cases right yeah. Why didn't Greta GERWIG GAGS nominated for best director for a little women? I mean I thought that little women was a terrific movie but more importantly I perceived maybe wrongly that what made it distinctive and different from all the other. Little women's that are out. There was the kind of direct hand of the director. The sense that the director had a vision was going a certain way. The presentation was distinctive. The outcomes were distinctive and I was genuinely surprised in my ignorance that it didn't yield a best director nomination explained to me what. I'm what I'm missing because I think I am missing several things. Well those of in the of of us in the industry were not as surprised because it had not won any of the precursor awards. You normally get. I think the broader most interesting thing for me to say about this stuff.

"HI everybody. It's Peter Travers. Here here with this special edition of Popcorn which we're calling the Oscar popcorn because this weekend on February ninth exactly everybody will be watching. Being the Oscar telecast on ABC and probably having their own little ballot. Like I have here trying to figure out who's going to win this damn thing and if the person I don't like winds pushed I put my money on. That's what really happens. That's what people ask me on the street. So I'm GonNa take you through these main categories and and we'll see what will win what should win and we can argue. You can find me somewhere and we can argue about it. But I'm going to start with with best supporting actress. Because that's how the Academy Awards those that's always the first award that we say Kathy Bates in Richard Jewel. Laura dern in marriage in story Scarlett Johansson in Joe Rabbit Florence Pew in Little Women and Margot Robbie in bombshell so look. There's it's a lot of good people here and I have to say right at the outset. That Scarlett Johansson is one of those rare actors that has a nomination as best actress. Chris and best supporting actress marriage story for Best Actress in here supporting which usually gets you to win one and that usually that it's usually that one but it's it's not going to happen you know I'm sitting here saying did I read wrong. What happened to Jennifer Lopez and hustlers? Hasn't she been in this game since the release Lisa Hustler she has and yet the academy you bad people have decided that J.. Lo just wasn't Oscar material while you're wrong but look we we have to deal with rats here and I'm going to say that the person who will win in this category is also the person who should win. And that is Laura Burn and Laura dern in marriage story plays a divorce lawyer and she's a tough one and let's think of all the Hollywood people that are voting for this award and how every single one of them I'll wager. A BET has their own divorce lawyer and has been through this process. Maybe more than once. Maybe two we're three times to do it. And they find Laura Dern Dunn's in this movie something spectacular it's also one of the few awards. I think that marriage story story is going to win. But Laura Dern has never won an Oscar. This will be her first time. Everyone loves her. We all love and big little lies and I think this is her time on so let her have it all right. I'm moving onto best supporting actor. Tom Hanks in a beautiful day in the neighborhood. Anthony Hopkins in the two popes Al Al Pacino in the Irishman Joe Pesci in the Irishman and Brad Pitt in once upon a time in Hollywood. Look you're talking to a big Irishman fan here so if it was me saying come up for the gold it would be Joe. Patchy I know Joe Pesci doesn't do any publicity. He basically sticks fix to himself. He's probably tough guy in real life as the gangster that he plays in the Irishman but that performance is amazing and won won his first Oscar for another score says he movie goodfellas where he was the most scary gangster. You can see here. He's kind of quiet dawn. So if I'm I'm giving them it would be Joe Patchy but the academy is giving this award and no one. No one can win. This except Brad Pitt. These other people here Tom Hanks Anthony Hopkins Al Pacino and Peci all have won Oscars so they already have the gold. Do you realize his full career. Brad Brad Pitt has never won an academy award game over people. This is it Brad. You're going to get in once upon a time in Hollywood playing a stuntman. It man playing somebody who's been around the business. I think it's irresistible for Hollywood to say I'm going to reject one of my own. Plus he was great in the movie. You seem to hear my voice that I have a little bit of a problem. Yeah I do. Because that's not a supporting performance at all that his part is the equal who of his Co Star Leonardo DiCaprio's WHO's nominated for best actor. So why is he in that category. I think they want to win. And Brad you might as well prepare repair your speech right now okay. I am now moving onto best actress. Cynthia Haribo in Harriet Scarlett Johansson in marriage story. Sir Sharon in little women. Charlie's Sharon in bombshell and Renee Zellweger in Judy. What Best S. actress award so far from the Golden Globes to the critics choice awards has it Renee Zellweger one? She's won all of them. So is there any possibility ability here for something else. I mean. Look what Charlie. Stern did in bombshell. She not only plays Megan Kelly. The makeup geniuses have made her look exactly exactly like her and Charlie's has talked exactly like are they love bio pics there so she should be really strong. Social Ronin is like twenty five years old. She's he's on her fourth Oscar nomination. This is incredible and Scarlett Johansson. Like I said nominated for best. Supporting actress and Best Actress. Cynthia revolt is playing Harry Tubman and she also wrote the song from the movie which is nominated. That happened to somebody last year. Didn't it yes it was lady. Eating Gaga Lady Gaga was nominated for writing that wonderful song from stars born and his best actress. But what did you win. She won best song and that was it so I have to say that again. I would give this award person late to search for Ronin just because I think to be that young and to be that consistently brilliant is amazing and her performance in little women. Is that good. But it's Rene as I talk about. How Hollywood would love bio-pics this is? Judy Garland that she's playing judy. This is one of their own. Did they ever give. Judy Garland her own Oscar Competitive Competitive Acting Oscar. Never and I think for that reason not only will renee Zellweger win best actress but she will win for Oscar. Judy Garland on never had. It's their way of saying Judy. We love you. We were so stupid not to give it to you. And we're going to give it to Rene in honor of you. This is how Hollywood works. It's really crazy. But if you're betting on this you have to bet crazy. Aright best actor Antonio Banderas in pain and gory. Leonardo di Caprio in once upon a time in Hollywood Adam driver in marriage story what came Phoenix and joker and Jonathan Pryce in the two popes. I look at this category and before I get into. Who Will Win and who should win? I've I've got to say academy what you have against Comedians. And what do you have against Eddie Murphy. That he's not nominated for Dole. Might as my name what you have against Adam Sandler who proved his dramatic chops in uncut gems. Like nobody can believe and yet they have it they only like to give Oscars to actors serious actors who played comic roles. Ause they hate anybody who's making a living as a comic to actually win this war so this year's been going along I've had this feeling that this was Adam drivers to lose that performance in marriage story is one of the best things he's ever done or that I've seen this year and yet there's this other guy and who's that other guy he's Joaquin Phoenix plane joker. Sometimes there's that kind of performance sometimes. There's there's one that just so dominates the screen. That is such an act of immersion of from an actor in a raw. Yeah Joaquin was scary. He was sometimes funny. He was always touching even though he's playing somebody who's totally out of his mind and a lot of this movie his in his mind. What Cain has been nominated several times before and never one Joaquin? This is yours. I can't believe any set of circumstances. Stances if you WANNA bet the whole house on something and somebody to win it's going to be Joaquin Phoenix as best actor for joker game over all right. We're ready now to move on. I'm going to best director now. This is one of the most exciting categories because these people will these particular men and save and because Hollywood as wont of decided that even though there were more women directing movies than ever before four last year. They couldn't find any to nominate which is of course absurd because Greta Gerwig directed little women which is nominated as best picture and they. I thought no I'm just GONNA do five men like we always do what happened. You people sort of learned a couple of years ago when you nominated Greta. GERWIG quick for Ladybird didn't give it to her. But you nominated her. The KADEMI is ninety two years old. Now how many women has given an academy award for directing one. And that's Kathryn Bigelow for hurt locker. Ninety two years one award hang your head in shame name anyway not knocking any of these men that did get nominated. But there's one in there that I would sacrifice for Greta Gerwig but you you try to guess who that is anyway. Here they are. Martin Scorsese the Irishman Todd Phillips. For Joker Sam Mendes for nine thousand nine hundred Seventeen Quentin Tarantino eighteen. O for once upon a time in Hollywood and Bung June hope for parasite every one of these guys you can make a case for. Martin Scorsese Z.. To me is a master the grandmaster who only has one Oscar for directing and then the Irishman is doing some of his best work. Ever Quentin Tarantino. Not No with once upon a time in Hollywood is also a peak form and yet I'm saying this category is going to between two other the directors one of them being the South Korean Vong June Hall for parasite a Foreign Language Film. That seems to have got everybody excited about what's possible and then Sam Mendes for nine hundred seventeen a world war one movie that is constructed to look like it was done in in one continuous. Take how do you resist that. You don't even though I think they would really like to give their best director award worked. Bon John. How it's going to be for Sam Mendes for creating a war movie like no war movie we've ever seen before so sam I think think it's yours but if you're getting out there and you WanNa go to Bung Jun Ho? You know you might do it because there's always a surprise in these contests we can't go. Oh by what the odds are we have to go by sometimes the academy saying I have an instinct for this. I have a feeling this is the right way to go all right last category. Are we ready best picture of the year Ford versus Ferrari the Irishman Joe. Joe Rabbit Joker her little women marriage story nineteen seventeen once upon a time in Hollywood and parasite here is is the one you know every year I do this. It's between one or two movies this year. I can't reduce anything to to the Irishman my estimation a classic one for the ages. Martin Scorsese. Ed Is Best Robert De Niro Pacino. Joe Patchy making a mob movie about old-age age about the end of a mobster. This is the punishment that they get for the lives they live. There's nobody in their lives there alone. It's a tragedy Quentin went and Tarintino. Once upon a time in Hollywood is writing about Hollywood in the sixties and about a time that he thought was the last creative burst of Hollywood Hollywood and doing that. Nineteen seventeen again the World War One movie shot to make it look like. It's one continue steak and parasite a movie about a Korean Rian family in which they exploited the people they work for and then are exploited by the people working for them it is a classic. These are four incredible classics. So what am I gonNA do. What am I going to tell you? What's out there that you have to say? This is the winner and I'm going to go with with all excuses. No excuses in fact to my love for the Irishman. But I think this is the year of Quentin Tarantino. I I think once upon a time in Hollywood being a love letter to Hollywood and being voted on by people who live and work in Hollywood Quentin Tarantino despite right brilliant work with pulp fiction inglorious bastards reservoir dogs Django unchained has never won a Best Picture Oscar or a best director Oscar. Never it's never happened. What better time than now? When he saying Hollywood.

So Darius we've decided we're going to place a bet on the Oscars. Yes I think we have to decide is what we want to bet on on best picture. Best actor best actress. I sort of feel like let's go with like the classic one. Go Best Picture. Okay I like it best picture. Okay and the nominees are in nineteen seventeen once upon a time in Hollywood the Irishman Little Women Ford versus Ferrari he parasite joker Joe Joe Rabbit and marriage story. But here's the thing stacey. I don't actually understand how Oscars odds work to you know. No okay I figured so save. I think I found the perfect person to break it down for us when we heard they were doing Oscars betting last year. I was literally like I've trained my whole life. This okay. That's Jessica Wellman men. She's a writer who covers the legal betting industry for a bunch of different websites. And she also happens to be a graduate of film school and a huge Oscars nut and so you know. I asked her to break down for us. Explain exactly how Oscars odds work okay. She's example Renee Zellweger. Who is currently the clear front runner for for best actress? She's nominated for her portrayal of Judy Garland in the film. Judy Oh the rainbow window cheese minus twenty five hundred to win which means if you wanted to win a hundred dollars off of your bet you would have to put down on twenty five hundred dollars. So here's how this works because bet on Renee Zellweger is very likely to. You have to put up a lot of money to get not very very much so say you wanted to win a hundred dollars you would have to put up twenty five hundred dollars to have a chance at winning one hundred dollars so you make twenty five hundred dollar bet if Rene Loses you lose your twenty five hundred dollars and wins you get your twenty five hundred dollars back plus your winnings which are a hundred dollars so paltry pretty paltry exactly so that is how it works. When you're betting on you know the major front runner on the opposite of the spectrum you have Charlene Darren? She's also nominated this year for best actress for her portrayal of former Fox News anchor. Megan Kelly in the legal drama bombshell the Roger ailes stuff. Her odds are currently plus thirty three hundred to win. So that means if you bet one hundred dollars on her and she actually wins you get your hundred dollar bet back plus a thirty three hundred dollar. They really don't think she's going to win. So you stand to gain a lot. And you're only risking hundred but apparently Zellwegger is just a shoe in for for this category and according to Jessica that is the case with a ton of the categories this year there just seems to be a ton of very clear front runners. That's why this year more more so than last year is what the sports but in world likes to call a very chalky year chaki meaning. It's full of heavy betting in favorites. Jockey tastic yeah apparently this comes from you know the olden days when they actually used to write the odds on a chalkboard and betting the chalk doc meant betting the favorite. Oh Yeah Very Chaki. We've got to start using that all the time. supertalk bear we. This extends into our own category of best picture. Who's the favorite right now? For Best Picture. Nineteen seventeen orders onto deliver a message. cooling-off tomorrow morning's attack if you fail it will be a massacre once. Nineteen Seventeen won the producers guild award. That's when it jumped into being the favorite it was at minus one sixty six and now how it isn't minus two thirty and these odds are set in many cases by an actual person. Like there's a guy both maker or a bookie Offers end this process could be a little more art than science. Sometimes it's sort of a combination of like gut feeling statistics rumors and then also just like how much other people are betting. So like if a bookie sees that a lot of action is coming in on what Keane Phoenix for joker. Maybe he'll raise the odds on that because clearly a lot. The people think it's going to happen so ultimately it is the bookies job to set the odds so that after all is said and done after all the winnings paid out there still a few bucks left over for the House supposed to win. Always okay so we have a handle on the odds. Yes but how should we bet I mean. Do we go for the clear front runner. do we write our course. We decided that we needed to bring in some big guns to figure this part out. I'm speaking I'm a professional. Sports better. spanky is a family name. No it's actually my real name is doing curls but my friends call expanding greatest name ever. If we're GONNA play I feel like spanky Corollas are guy. Yeah picky Corollas. He has been making his living as a gambler for the past. Seventeen years He actually used to work on Wall Street. That's amazing but so basically basically. He quit his day job and now he just gambles full-time and Spanky said that when you're dealing with a situation with very chaki odds when there are clear front runners. He says it's best to avoid the obvious choice. Avoid the front runner betting the heavy favorite You risk a lot to win a little. So that fifty to one Joaquin Phoenix. You're risking fifty dollars to win a dollar That's a lot that's a lot of would lay on to just pick up that one buck. Doc let's what we call it in this bridge jumpers. It's if you win nothing happens. What if you lose you? Jump off a bridge. I don't think we should jump bridges that it sounds terrible. Okay so maybe no nineteen seventeen all right but then like what. We Bet Not Irishman or forbid Oskar and we will not that on the Irish. I've suffered enough. Here's the thing I'll go down there. I'll see what the odds are and I'll I'll just let my heart decide. I love it I love it so I went down to Atlantic city. Hey I'd like to bet on the Oscars can do that here. Yes sir what would you like to have All right so definitely going to bet on on best picture best pitcher who you want. Seventeen put ten on that on little women. I don't think it's GonNa win with my favorite movies. Oh little women. I once I was there. In that moment I was like my analytical brain was going and I was like maybe parasite would be a good player but I was like I gotta go little women love it. It's such a beautiful story and and so I have have. Are Betting slip here earl. It's see yes okay. Little women to win wager ten dollars potential payout a thousand dollars no way okay. So if little women takes the win with clear we gotta go back and gamble thousand dollars on the slots. Exactly exactly.

"oscars" Discussed on Recode Media with Peter Kafka
"I actually like to personally myself And then move on with it it. It seems like we are freighting. The Oscars with more weight than this sort of prosaic definition. We have here. which is this is what eight thousand people who make movies think is a good movie? I feel like the I mean there. Is We know some of the people who are in the academy but overall I mean that's such a massive voting body that it does feel like the sort of anonymous forum that is supposed to be representative of the larger interest. And even though as Elissa set it's not supposed to be representative of the American persons best film or choice top choice it's not a census. Exactly it's sort of. I think becomes that that for the people the viewers like we do have this really emotional investment in art in general in our film choices so then to see this giant gigantic mantech voting body that we do not know we did not elect speak to. This is the movie that everyone should pay attention to it. Sort of then we interact with it in this way of we have this attachment to that. What does the say about the validity of my attachment And to go back to something I said before for I think The Self reinforcing nature of the Oscars that if you win an Oscar. You're going to get work. That's why people get frustrated about things like lack of diversity acidity among the nominees. Because it's just kind of a feedback loop where this person keeps getting to make movies because they've made successful movies and it's harder for new voices to break in Dan or for more diverse voices to break in because it's the same group of people all the time and so there's movies where you know if you had Meryl Streep in your movie like a she's GonNa get nominated. That'd be your movies going to get a lot of awards attention but it's harder for a movie with may be less familiar actors or people of Color or like certainly female directors have had a hard time getting Nominated and then people say well. It's because they didn't make movies that were worth it. which isn't necessarily true you? I mean we could do many any many hours on representation and why it matters. It doesn't matter But I do think that. That's a disconnect. Because you'll hear a lot of people complain Oscar so white or whoever says has the congratulations to all the male nominees. I think that's a recurring joke now. and I think there's a lot of folks I I don't I don't care who made my movie okay and I see movies with all kinds of people in it. And what are we upset about and again. I think. Somebody's Bhai underlining that this is. This is a financial decision for a a lot of people. This is going to play into. What kind of movie gets made? What kind of actor gets to be onscreen in the next movie? who gets the hundred sixty million dollars and I will say Netflix? To their credit they are known for throwing a lot of money at people to do whatever they want with them and And that has included. I can think of one female director specifically who did a net afflicts movie said. Her movie was at a different studio and she had to take it back from them. Because it was just stuck in development hell and net flicks was like here. You do whatever every want with Nicole. I love talking to straighten I want to talk about money more Netflix.

"oscars" Discussed on Little Gold Men
"It didn't add anything to the saga words for me. And so I'm wondering, you know, in in the countries with conversations we've been having about a host, Louis Oscars. What the construction of that? Like how that read to you guys did you? Yeah, it's interesting because you know, a show does have to have some kind of crowd control. You know, it has to flow in there has to be someone directing the transitions, right? And I didn't really watch the whole show. I kind of just watched like clips of Megamall alleys kind of jokes, which were not great. But it did make me wonder like, okay. So the Oscar No-ho said he has interesting because Mike you've been saying you open with a big song. Great that. That's that's your opening. I agree agree that that would be the strong way to do it. But, but then what how do we get from that point to the first award is there is like member of the years ago when Peter Coyote was like at this round desk backstage all the announcements that was so weird. Is it like one of those things where we just have someone some like voice of God being like a now, you know, maybe that works, but I do also worried that like the no host thing from the Oscars was not like a long standing plan that they really like honed and sort of worked with it was kind of. A last minute thing. So I think there's potential Oscars. Are this is what I'm saying? Well, I mean, everything has been a mess so far. Now, there's all this like anger and debate and arguing over the decisions to give below the line stuff during the commercials and Cinematograph pants now below the line, and you just think what is going to be in this show, if there's no host if you won't let three of the five song nominees actually perform if you're having all the below the line things not happen on screen like you're really setting the bar, so high that everything that happens on screen has to be absolutely fascinating. And amazing, and it won't it's going to be bunch of mostly boring speeches there. I just feel like this thing. It's shaping up. Really horribly. I will say one thing that I want to predict possibly possible prediction is that there's going to be some kind of surprise host or group hosting thing. At the beginning. I'm starting to think they're gonna bus. Something out and have maybe they'll bring back some pass hosts or something I think they're going to probably engineer some kind of opening number. I don't know if you can pull that off. But in the world of surprise, marriages and surprise babies and stuff I feel like a surprise opener is not unthinkable. Excellent. All right. So do you have any predictions about who you think would be in the surprise group? I feel like God. I don't know next week. We'll we'll come back to that. Okay. We should mention that we talked last week or so we can four about a potential campaign saves for for Bradley Cooper, performing places. And hey, what does he been doing lately guys? Now, I'm getting hubristic. I feel like I don't think Bradley or any of the senior people involved stars for listening. But I have a feeling some of the some of the people who actually make it all happen are listening and my fantasy is that they're going to their bosses telling them what to do, and they're and they're listening and they're getting huge raise. This is my this is my goal for all of you guys. I really like how many I got notes both on Twitter and other places of people being like, oh my God. Do you think Bradley Cooper steam listens to little gold, man? So let's all right. Let's see what what happened. Exactly. So Gaga was performing at at the garden. Was it? I don't know the venue, and then Bradley came out and did a Jackson main thing, basically and saying shallow with it. Right. And one point apparently air guitars and somebody said, you can really tell the difference. Clean jackson. Maine and Bradley Cooper because the air guitar would have been cool. If Jackson main had done it, but it was kind of dorky. I just think that like, you know, and Gaga was giving him this like, I don't know a God has decided to join us sort of treatment..

"Oscars. Congratulations. First of all how does that feel? Well, I'm more humbled by that response from. I really appreciate that. Thank you for the warm wishes. It's really quite a thing for me. This election was Dunbar peers, so I think I speak for myself in the producer later swat when I say, we are deeply humbled by the fact that we got a vote of confidence to represent our nation from our NPS this South African film industry is growing recent figures suggest it's worth five point four billion round to the economy, your companies based here in Johannesburg, so all filmmakers at the center of the creative resurgence here. I wouldn't wanna be. So you get statistical say we're at the center of it. But we definitely in the mix, and it's a medium that reflects the nation believe we can look at foam, and we can see ourselves and not only that, but we can export our culture in a way that we can't. Otherwise would say the winter to my skin takes us back to the nineteen fifties. The early days of apartheid and to a real life outlaw called John cafe tell us who he was. And why his Spain? Mr john. Binga is his tribal name. He was abandoned for over twenty years. He basically if you listeners can picture rule region where the local populace the indigenous population is what I would turn disenfranchised. You could make the argument that a good fifty sixty years before these people were wearing loin cloths in my pants worshiping, the ancestry rather than a why Jesus so they've been put into townships, and it's a space where really black people didn't know who. And what they were. And of the space roses man with what are termed Samuel L Jackson kind of swag. And he went out in the terrorized the local white populace visibility the farmers. You know, he stole from them. And he shared with his people. Now, that's not necessarily something to be lauded. But for a time and a place where people need is some kind of heroism he stood up. What attracted me to the story. Well, Landon ownership is a contentious emotive issue across South Africa at the moment. Internationally. We may be a million with it in terms of farmland and rural life. Seventy two percent of farmland is owned by the minority white population. But easy just as important here in Johannesburg in the cities, I think so I think that's a great question. I came through China's one thousand nine hundred nine as a young man full of dreams wanting to essentially make something of my life. I came from the Eastern Cape, which is the southern part of our country. And. Yeah, coming to this big space. The first thing that hit me was just how you had so many displaced people. From all over this continent. I was hit by that that I immediately made a documentary about it. But that displacement for me was centered around one particular thing, and that is a sense of dignity and the sense of self I in that period, the young man, I spent most of my time in new down rocky street. And in those spaces, you could really get a sense of how people didn't have that. And they were struggling with it. You one day a land claim is central to your novel the woman next door. Why was that a spurt of the plot? The what are the things I wanted to do was look at some of the history of South Africa. And I think it's very difficult to do that without accepting that the issue of land is central and company Nord. But for me the issue was how to look at it from different angles. So there's a threat in the story that is not necessarily about just a claim to the land in terms of economy, but actually spiritual familial claims where your bodies buried, you know, that sort of connection that is even more complex. I think than what we're trying to resolve now Clara any thoughts. Yeah. I think the question of whether and how resources more broadly in South Africa can be distributed more equitably. Is kind of the key question four how South Africa New forward? You're listening to the BBC World Service. I'm Nikki Bedi.
