I completely forgot. Yeah. Yeah. And you didn't even put the number on that stream. Did you do on purpose? I think I went back last night and and put the number on there. I I've been looking at like trying to verify what people want to watch like what works for people because some of our podcasts get insane retention. We've got 85 % retention on a four hour podcast. It's awesome. Yeah, that's amazing. But then another will have like 55 or 60 which is more high but normal and I'm like, what do I need to do? So I've been looking at naming and stuff like that. Yeah, for sure. It's it's definitely it's definitely something I screw up. I'm not good at it. Like it's called the best gaming podcast because I'm not good at this shit behind the scenes. I'm like just dude. I'm not good. I like this is the one place where I have issues up everybody in chat. We're jereo Robert chicken wings flexing darge night. What's up, man? We had a long discussion with darge last night Eric maverick duck. I'm gonna have to read some of the discord discussion we had last night. We had a huge favorite favorite stuff, right? It was like favorite take an IP and give it to a dev and then that one is a cool question. Yeah, I like that question. It was awesome. I mean it went for like four solid hours. I went for a run with kiddies came home and they were still in there. Yeah, and I was like that's that's that's a gem. That's always cool. What about you? What like over the week? Let's see. So last we did was Friday. So over the weekend in the last couple days, anything amazing? Um, no, I've been addicted to all week to I went and watched a movie at the theater. The one with Leonardo DiCaprio and yeah, yeah. Is it good? Um, it's so paid. It's paced very weirdly like it's it's it's I liked it kind of I like the performances. I think what's his name, the one dude, the older guy, the Robert De Niro did a fantastic job. I've never seen him like, like be that way. He was like a, you know, southern kind of dude, you know, I mean, that was really cool to see. I like the story about the pacing was just it just killed it for me a little bit because they went like this and then it would go like that. You know, I'd just be all over the place. So, you know, I couldn't I couldn't, you know. Yeah. So I didn't love it. But it was it was cool. So it was more along the lines of like minutes. What the movies, three hours and 30 minutes long. Yeah, dude. Oh, my God. Dude, that's that's like birds for a lot of babies. That's a long movie. That's a long, very long. Yeah. How they prop up De Niro to be awake for three hours and 30 minutes. I have no idea. Dude, I love it. It's crazy. It's crazy. Yeah. Was DiCaprio going against type kind of thing where he does in some movies where he's like, I'm going to play Blood Diamond. He was like the South African Blood Diamond, black black market trader, phenomenal movie in this one. Did he play against type? Like, was he a nerd or was he or was he just Leonardo? He was a Leonardo. No, no, no. It wasn't Leonardo. He was very odd. Yeah. It was like different. He looked uglier, like purposefully uglier kind of. Oh, wow. More southern, more like. Yeah. He was he was he was different. He wasn't being like Leonardo or anything. It's a weird role, but he nailed it for sure.

"Grown coffee mountain grown coffee. Carlos Elsrocky. I was going to make espresso. And baked by Juan Coffee with Carlos. Good to the last drop. Hola Carlos. What's up? What's up? Yes Can't keep getting away with it. Let's get him. The Reaper. He's gonna try to delay the We're gonna delay the Reaper. I plugged up the fireplace. It's not gonna get No sir you're gonna delay it. I hold all Robert De Niro stories for you because wasn't he he got an award in New York and he was mad because they cut his anti -Trump comments. Yeah. You cut my speech. You cut my speech. Yeah. Is that what you did? You missed the cut. You like the cut. I like the cut. You like the cut I cut. You cut I cut. You cut I cut. Okay? Okay. All right. Thank you. That's all I needed. I just needed a little a A little bit little bit. A little bit. A little bit of De Niro. Yeah. How have you been? We've missed you. You've been off working. okay. I've been I've been in Arkansas for Thanksgiving and we shot a little film before that so busy busy. You've been in between been battling the crazy idealistic third party voters. Yeah. Yeah. Who are calling me all kinds of names. I'm either too rich or not famous enough or I'm callous. I hate people. I hate a poor people. I hate black people. I hate brown people. Yeah. And then I posed the question. What about brown black people and people and poor people that are voting for Biden. Yeah, I played we played this YouTube stars are named Cal Bell. Everybody's everybody's going crazy over. But I thought of you you would love it because you make such great analogies she but was talking about, you know, not voting for Biden wrote in third party or not whatever about the home improvement shows that it's like the people that just like to smash things just like to do the demolition without looking having a or plan looking at the blueprint or don't care about the bearing wall or whatever that they just want chaos, I guess. yeah, Yeah, they want to put in a wall made out of marshmallow without any repercussions, right? I want the marshmallow wall because it's gentle on the earth and yet it's not going to work. Everything they propose, they know their idea of voting third party isn't good. So they attack you for voting for somebody who's less than perfect. Yes, doesn't Biden have an outstanding record as the most incredible human being ever without corruption and without doing something bad. you But have two choices. That's what you're annoying. I would beg to differ. A third choice is no choice. I don't think Biden has any corruption. I that's mean, the thing is I'm sick of this lesser of two evils. Biden's not evil. He's been fantastically successful president on every barometer. Yeah, but I don't care if he was. Because to me, that gets into having to have somebody be perfect anyways. And nobody's perfect. It is not without his fault. It's not about things that have not gone perfectly well in the international community. We get that. But you don't have a choice. You know, I dug two seconds. I dug things up on Cornel West, you know, laid on his child payments, avoiding taxes. You don't think that whoever gets you pick by the right, they don't exist in the vacuum. Jill Stein having a freaking cocktails with Putin. She's a great human being. None of them are. The only thing is you got two choices. We had Rob Reiner on yesterday. And, you know, he talks about that he called Bobby Kennedy, who's you know, he's known and has been a friend and just said, what are you doing? You're going and it destroyed democracy. And it's just I was saying, I think the amount of ego it takes right now to to run third party is insane as this country is facing a madman and a fascism. Politics not short of people with egos, though, unfortunately. Or you're the you're the steeplechase runner that's been lapped twice and you should be in the outside lane. No, I'm going to stick to the inside. You just tripped everybody over the steeple. Yeah, everybody's in the water. You broke all their legs because you were too selfish to get out of the way. You're talking to and Malcolm ask about people saying right now, like, oh, I'm all my Muslim friends. No one's voting for Biden because of how he's handling the Middle Lisa. East. And I'm like, you're going to vote for Muslim band, expel every Palestinian from the United States guy. You're going to vote for that guy. It's not a time to protest. You can't be a single issue voter. And I know that's a huge issue, but I'm not going because to vote he's for him allowing all these permits on for drilling oil. I'm not going to vote for him because he didn't do student all loan forgiveness. Never mind that Congress and the Supreme Court tried to block it. I'm not going to vote for you. Can't be single issue about this. If you are going to be single issue, the issue should be autocracy or democracy. Make that your single issue. And then on that point, yeah. Yeah. On every issue, Carlos, it's not just Trump. He may not be the nominee. It's a party that wants to vote to have a Muslim ban and expel every Palestinian that's currently living in the United States. That's an actual bill. This headline, House GOP to hold hearing on Social Security death panel. The Republican controlled House Georgia committee is set to convene a hearing to examine legislation that would establish a so -called fiscal commission for U .S. a debt, proposal that it's a Trojan horse for cutting Social Security and Medicare. Speaker Mike Johnson, a longtime proponent of Social Security cuts, describes such a commission as one of his top priorities after winning the gavel last month. Right -wing organizations like the Coke suckers over there in Freedom Works have endorsed the idea. One analyst said that is a code for a death panel designed cut to Social Security Medicare behind closed doors. MAGA Mike Johnson and his fellow Republicans desperately want this commission to give bipartisan cover to benefit cuts. Democrats must stand united against it. I think Mike Barnicle was talking about this. Later this week we're going to have a reconvening of the House Committee on
A highlight from Ep. 116 - Talking About The Music Of 1977
"Well, here we are. Episode 116. On the march to 200 and beyond. And on this episode, I have the Wrecking Two with me, Mark Smith and Luke Colicchio from the Music Relish Show. And we're going to be talking about the year 1977, and music, and some movies, some news flashbacks maybe. Interesting, yeah. I say it was the beginning of the end of the 70s. Yeah. So sit back, relax, get yourself some Acapulco Gold or some Panama Red, break open a bottle of Rianini Limbrusco, sit back, relax, and enjoy 1977 all over again. The KLFB Studio presents Milk Crate and Turntables, a music discussion podcast hosted by Scott McLean. Now, let's talk music. Enjoy the show. Thank you, Amanda, for that wonderful introduction, as usual. I got a little FaceTime from young Amanda this afternoon. So I'm sitting there just kind of chilling. Oh, my little girl's calling me. She calls me. And hi. I'm like, what's up, little girl? She just kind of looks and says, can I see the cats? Oh, yeah, that's my life. She don't miss me. Misses the cats. Anyway, welcome back, my friends, to the show that never ends. And welcome to the podcast. Do you know the name of it? So I'm not going to say it. We're streaming live right now over YouTube, Twitch, Twitter. It's Twitter, formerly known as Twitter X, whatever, a lot of them all over the place. It's going to be a good show tonight. It's going to be a good show. In the intro, I mentioned Acapulco Gold. And speaking of Acapulco Gold, it's Luke Aleccio from the Music Relish show. No stems, no seeds that you don't need. Acapulco Gold is... There you go, buddy. That's a blast. That's sweet. Let me give you some of that, buddy. Thank you. Yeah. A little teaching charm for you. Enough of that. And speaking of Panama Red, it's Mark Smith from the Music Relish. Chardonnay Gold. Instead of Acapulco Gold, he's got the Chardonnay Gold. Yeah. As usual. What's up, gentlemen? How you doing, gentlemen? Good. How are you? Doing all right. Doing all right. Yeah. Hey, you know who I don't miss? Who? I really don't miss Jimmy Buffett. Let's start off the show on a... He's a cynic. I don't miss him. I don't miss him. I'm not going to miss Jimmy Buffett. I really jumped on that bandwagon. Never really got it. Me neither. To me, it's not a bandwagon thing. It's something where I knew there's two or three songs and more steel drums, really more steel drums. But things I've heard, you know, scanning through Margaritaville radio, there was some pretty good stuff. You know, like nothing going to change your world, but you know... It's not my type of music. No, I'm not a parrothead. And I think his concerts were his big, like the Grateful Dead, you know? The concert is what it is. The experience. Yeah. Right? The Jimmy Buffett experience. I guess so. Yeah. It was his motif, you know, escapism kind of, you know. But he did spawn that horrible genre of golf and western music. Yeah. Yeah. I'd rather sit in the parking lot with a cooler of beers and a hibachi and listen to the pretenders. Yeah. Did Jimmy ever tour with the dead? Is there really a fuck up with the dead? That would have been a huge crowd, though. Boy, that's the mellowest concert ever. Dead parrotheads. Dead parrotheads. I think he's more of that mellow west coast. I think I could see him touring with the Eagles or James Taylor, I think, more now. He's some Key West buddy. Don't put him on the left coast. No, no, no. He's a Key West man. He was his own entity. Actually, he moved from the Key West. He didn't live there for a long time. Right. But his studio was there. His studio was right next to his bar, right like connected to his studio. Yeah. So that's where he would go. I remember when I worked U .S. Customs behind the scenes at Miami International, he had his own private jet. It would come up from, I guess, the Keys, but he didn't travel in just anything. It would be like, because if you have your own jet, you have a parking spot. You would have a bus. You would have a bus, like a tour bus would take him from Key West. It is from Miami. It's about a two hour drive. So you're going to do it in luxury, but everything's good with you guys. Hot. Yeah. Too damn hot up here in New York. It's hot as Bono's whatever was balls in the back of my neck. Yeah. Yeah. I don't like this. I want winter. Did Lou freeze up? Oh, no. There we go again. The pressure's on me. I got to be Lou. You've got to be Lou. Let me get this brain. I've got to be Lou. I've got to be Lou. Then there he goes. He's off the screen. Ten minutes. Let's set the timer. Set the timer. Will he break ten minutes? Will he come back on under ten minutes? Let's see. I'm starting it. See? I got the timer going there. All right. All right. Well, we're talking about 1977. I was old, but eight years old. So, I was, let me see, probably 12 going on 13, I think, right? I'm 59 now, so you're what, 56? 53. 53? Yeah. And you were eight? Yeah. I was born in 1969. So, eight, nine, 10, 11, 12. Yeah. That was right. 13. Well, 12, 13. Yeah. Yeah. I think I was beginning. I was a freshman. I was a freshman. Although, where I grew up, the freshman didn't go to the high school. That was only 10, 11, and 12. Ninth grade was at its own building. Oh. Isn't that interesting? Yeah. Yeah. But, yeah, 1977, interesting year. Yeah. A lot happened. Yeah. As I said in the intro, I think 1977 was the beginning of the end of the 70s. Yeah. Things were really starting to change. I think disco still had a little bit of a hold, but I think that was the tail end of disco, and it was the beginning of punk, and so there was a transition. That's where, I think, right there is where it started. So, let's get right into 77, as I usually do. I'm starting to like this little format. Yeah. Year by year. And it makes a long podcast, but hey, listen, we're in it for the ride with whoever's listening. We're in it for the ride. January 1st, 1977, The Clash headlined the opening night of London's only punk rock club. You know the name of that club? No. The Roxy. Another Roxy. Yeah. Wow. Yeah. So, let's start right off with stories. So, I get off the plane at Clark Air Force Base in the Philippines. So, 10 years later, right? 10 years later, 87, I get off the plane. My buddy's there, meets me. It lands right on the base. They called it the freedom bird because the turnaround flight was taking people home, right? I get, you know, they bring me back to temporary quarters. I get changed. My buddy's like, let's go. And we go off base. And it is absolutely insane. Like, you can't even imagine the sounds and sights and the energy. And yeah, I can always say, like, if you saw Deer Hunter when Robert De Niro goes back to Saigon, you know, and it's like just that motor, little motorcycles driving by and it's a dirt road. The main street is a dirt road. And this was your first time in the Philippines? In the Philippines. Yeah. It's stationed there. And my buddy says to me, he says, all right, listen, when you go into these bars, you got to act like you've done it before. Oh, come on. I grew up in Boston. I run the streets. I was in the subways. Of course I can. I walk in the first bar I walk into, The Roxy. It's called The Roxy, right? And I just, first thing you see is a bar, a U -shaped bar, right? Big U -shaped bar. The music is just cranking. I think it was like Motley Crue or something just cranking. And right in the middle of that, running right down the center of that Horseshoe bar was a stage and there had to be 15 girls up there just dancing. Like go -go girls type thing. Uh -huh. In bikinis. I was like, what the fuck? Oh, shit. And then I order a beer and the bartender is this Filipino girl. She looks, she says, first thing she says to me, you cherry boy. Cherry boy. Meaning I'm new. And I said, I looked at my buddy. I said, how does she know? He says, it's in your eyes. You're just staring around. They see it in your eyes. Yeah. They know that look. And the rest, as they say, is history.

"Yeah. I don't think I've ever watched more than three complete hours of a Taylor Sheridan series and I like a lot of his movies. So it's the damnedest thing. It's another example of like could you just write more movie scripts. You're pretty good at that anyhow. I'm excited for you when you reach your 60s and start making your trilogy self -funded trilogy Western film.

The one thing I don't listen to is the Philly special and off the pike no disrespect to Brian Barrett but I would never. Remember in there was a podcast that we did last week you know in this in the big picture run I have no idea when we did it and it was like two hours in and you're like I don't hold myself to a high enough standard and that's why I'm failing at life and your response to me was that I need to get on Xanax. My response was actually like empathy and like you're doing great Sean and also take some Xanax. Anyway do you think I should get on Xanax? Like when I'm not around it's just you guys. You're just talking right? You've you've taken knocks to the park. You're hanging out with Zach. You guys are talking of Eagles offseason. Do you think we talk about you?

You can tell me. Like I respect you. I just don't really know if Xanax would make you more polite. Is that one of the things Xanax does?

"And I was like, this is the pinnacle of acting. Cause that's literally how I feel. It's really, it's beautiful. It's very upsetting. I'm like, I too don't want Fredo to have pneumonia. Yeah. But also ice cold in that role too, you know, and just a brutal character. I feel really good about that. And then of course, in action horror thriller, I'm taking fucking heat. How did you not take heat? Because I wouldn't take heat first. Why would you take, I can't take heat. I'm not, I'm not going to get trolled by you.

You know how many text message threads I'm on right now? I'm on like, Jeff, I think I've, Jeff wrote me East of Eden last night. Here's what I have for you.

"Okay. Sierra, you have a pick. I'll do Taxi Driver for Oscar nomination. Interesting. The original Master Gardener. Okay. You know what I mean? Have you seen Master Gardener? I haven't. I wish you could join us for our Master Gardener conversation, which Amanda and I will have already had by the time people hear this podcast. I rewatched Taxi Driver over the weekend. Did you? Still really good. Did you learn anything new about yourself? I'm glad I don't journal very much. I think that his, I really love the transformation in this movie and some of his films, like there are a couple from this era where I think that he puts his body through a lot, but watching this guy kind of unravel and yet still being forced to see everything through his POV is so disturbing still today. And I think it's a very nuanced performance, despite the fact that it has like two or three iconic moments. So those moments kind of subsumed the performance itself. And yes, you know, he has been something of a role model for me, you know. I think this would have been my first pick. I think I'm not entirely, it's a little hard to know. So you guys are doing De Niro first and movie second. That's fine. That's up to you. Not necessarily. Well, okay. That will be challenged. I mean, Taxi Driver is one of the great, like I also rewatched it. Yeah, still really good. And like, you're right. There is, I mean, it's not like he's likable or like soft at the beginning, but there is something weird, like something's a little off in it, like, and just the degrees to which he turns it is like phenomenal. If you were Cybill Shepherd working in Palentine's office in New York City, young Amanda in her twenties, idealistic, putting your heart in behind a candidate who can change the city, and this Taxi Driver banged on the window and was like, I would like to have sexual relations with you and take you to a porno.

"Okay. And I think De Niro, young De Niro hotness. I think I might go the other way. I think young Pacino coolness, but I think Robert De Niro in his youth was a beautiful man. He was. I mean they both were. Al was a haunted scarf wearing lunatic. Who do you think's a better hang right now? Pacino. I think maybe Bob. Bob's got a lot of restaurants. He knows how to host. I mean, that is true. Yeah. But he's not like. That wasn't what I asked. He's going to let you into the restaurant and then leave. But you might be like, whatever you guys want tonight, drinks are on the house. Pacino would just be like, I don't know. He seems like a real cook, but in a way that I would find amusing. I think Pacino is hotter. I think De Niro is more important to movies is what I'll say. I think he has participated in more iconic films. I think him and Scorsese sort of define the New York American filmmaking aesthetic of the last 50 years. So I'll go with them. Okay. Let's draft. What's the draft order? Let's get an order here. Selecting first will be Amanda Dobbins. Wow. Okay. Okay. This is interesting. I don't know whether it's good, but. Sam's song first overall. And second will be Chris Ryan, which means Sean. Wowzers. So it's really weird because even in the most years, exciting even in a 1999 year, you can only take one movie to start. You can't. It's true. I also, I think that for the most part, with one category exception, there's plenty of stuff. I don't know why I'm drawing this out in drama. I'm taking Goodfellas. Okay. Is that the right category for that film? Now that's a great pick. Obviously Chris and I, life -defining film. You guys just didn't even react. Are you just going to do like De Niro? I'm just like not engaging with you. I'm doing math on. It's definitely like a great, I mean, it was just like, that would probably be the number one consensus pick, I think. Yeah. I think, yeah. The category question is interesting. It's a drama, right? If you swap out Robert De Niro with Al Pacino in Goodfellas, is it a significantly different film? Is he more Irish? Yeah, Yeah. you did this. By the way, I listened to your rewatchables on Goodfellas. About Goodfellas? Yeah, I re -listened to it. Chris's finest hour. It was very funny. You did this on rewatchables. I didn't agree with you then, and I don't agree with you now. This, to me - I did this exact thing? You did that exact bit. I've only got so many cards in the deck. Yeah. I know it's sad. And I mean, the Irishness is a good point, but also to me, Goodfellas, to me, even over Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, all of them Goodfellas is the defining De Niro performance. Is that because it's a more fun movie? Maybe. Because Taxi Driver and Raging Bull masterworks are no fun. Yeah. And they're at times tough to rewatch. Yes. And I think that the scene of him smoking, you know, is like - Yeah, cream. See our huge clapton head. I love that. That's one of the coolest - I know, it's one of the coolest things, but that kind of crystallizes to me De Niro in lights. When you say it, obviously I think of you talking to me and all of that stuff, but that is when Robert De Niro transcends to just not an all -timer, but the phenomenon. So if I had the opportunity to draft this movie, I probably would have done it in supporting role. That was why I asked you the question, but because he's not the star of this movie. In fact, there are stretches where he's not in the movie. That's true. This is a Ray Liotta starring performance. That's great. Where would you have taken Goodfellas? I would have taken it in supporting, but that's fine.

"This is the guy. It's worth exploring just that exact era because in that moment after Taxi Driver, he works with Bernardo Bertolucci and Ilya Kazan, and then he makes New York, New York, and then he makes the Deer Hunter, and then we get the swap. And then yeah, it's Raging Bull, True Confessions, King of Comedy once upon a time. He does have Deer Hunter. So it's really, Marty needs it more than De Niro needs it. De Niro's 80s is weird because he has like six iconic movies and then a lot of stuff that you're like, what? But he's also, I mean, the 80s is when he maybe shuffles the deck a little bit. It's Terry Gilliam and it's Roland Jaffe and it's Alan Parker and it's Brian De Palma. And he's like moving through like some other guys and he doesn't get back together with Scorsese until 90. But for a very special film. Yeah, for a very special film. Um, gosh, it's a great, it's a great prompt. I'm not sure. What's your emotional status going into this? Like are you, are there certain films you guys have to have? Are you going to be mad? There are two movies that I would really like to have and then there are everything else is like, I feel very. You've already given me too much information. Like Pat Riley, watching the tape. Old. Calling smoke. Wearing jewelry. Yeah, rich. My hair slicked back. Living in a massive condo. You've answered the question of your emotional state and I don't need it anymore. I actually, it is a kind of a question of how much does Robert De Niro matter to you, right? Like he matters to me a great deal, but not as much as the filmmakers that he has worked with. Well, I was going to say, that's another question. What, and you don't have to answer this and I'm certainly not going to give away my strategy, but a question looming over this draft is how much are you drafting it for the De Niro performance versus the movie itself? How are we going to evaluate success at the end? Yeah, I like that question. I don't, I really don't know. What do you, how do you think we should think of it and how should we instruct the audience? I think that listeners and voters will probably just look at movie and say, like that's the look where you don't look at Twitter or wherever you decide to put the poll up. Yeah. Blue sky. Are you on? I haven't signed up. Amanda uses twitter .com on her desktop computer. Yeah. You know, I really know I use it on my laptop. I don't have a desktop.

"I had ever encountered who would transform himself physically to throw himself into a role. And famously, you know, and famously is like, almost like disappears into the parts he plays. I almost feel as though I knew that about him before I had even seen the great performances, barring maybe like catching good fellows on HBO at a young age or something. I think I probably knew that he was, you know, celebrated for having gained and lost a lot of weight for Raging Bull before I even saw Raging Bull. So his sort of his history precedes him in many ways for, if you weren't contemporaneous with him, you know, because his iconography grew really, really fast in the seventies. And so it's interesting to try to evaluate like what is great about him. Cause as Chris said, there's not a ton of media that supports his intellectual process. He's not the best interview in the world. He's quite taciturn. I don't know. What do you think about his iconography? Well, I mean, it's interesting what Chris said about him disappearing into roles, which I think is certainly true in the seventies and eighties, but it is funny when you come from, you know, Sean, from our generation and we were talking about like, how does the later half of De Niro's career impact your understanding of De Niro? And to me, he's a little bit always Robert De Niro. You know, there is this persona and because he himself has like done so much meta work on like what the idea of himself is in movies. I think I did always bring that to watching like the great films, you know, and I probably was more familiar with maybe like mid -career De Niro before I saw say Raging Bull or Goodfellas. Deer Hunter, as we know, I saw at a very early age, which is just an extremely fucked up. It's really messed up. But it's interesting, I was also doing, as I was prepping for this, it's really fascinating.

"I'm glad you brought this up. The answer, of course, is no. That being said, I am looking forward to the phase in my life when after we've completed all the movie drafts and we've all been celebrated and we've all received Academy Awards when I can do bullshit for money. That's really, I don't blame him one bit for doing bullshit. I don't either. The only thing that bumps me out about like the 2010s and to, you know, since is essentially that he plays on like his own legend so much, whether it's playing boxers or playing gangsters or whatever. And it's not that I'm like, you should only be in the intern from now on, you know, although ideally he would, but I just don't think it's like, damn dude, you're going to make another boxing movie when you made the goat boxing movie. Yeah. And like, isn't there something a more age appropriate you could do? You know, I think people don't realize. I guess maybe Clint gets to be a cowboy. Like, what are we doing? You know, maybe it's slightly different in so far as like Clint controls all aspects of the production for that with Robert De Niro. These are clearly paycheck roles that he's been taking. I was even thinking about just the idea of doing this episode. Obviously we have a huge relationship to De Niro. I didn't even realize that that was your dad's I'm not sure if he holds the same weight culturally that he did even 10 years ago in part because he's just made a lot of disposable stuff recently. In fact, he made a movie last year called Savage Salvation. Are you familiar with this movie? It's directed by Randall Emmett, who is a figure of some controversy because he was ensnared in that Bruce Willis story about like working with him. He's also Vanderpump adjacent, right? He's Vanderpump adjacent. Look at you. The stars of this movie Savage Salvation are Jack Huston, Robert De Niro, and John Malkovich. Pretty impressive. Fourth build, Quavo from Migos. Okay.

You're talking to me. That's good. That's good. This week we are changing things up. We are drafting, but we are not drafting from a year. We are not drafting from a theme. We are drafting from a human's career. That human is Robert De Niro. This week he stars in the new Sebastian comedy, Maniscalco all about my father. C .R. told me privately off Mike, his favorite movie of the year, actually his favorite movie of the decade. This is by my count, the actually one hundredth credited on screen performance in the acting career of Robert De Niro. By my count, like, does that mean like you went through and hand counted them? Yeah, it's sort of a dominion voting system situation. No, well, he's he's done some voice work. Oh, OK. I learned something interesting that I did not know as I was researching this episode that I'm going to share with you both right now. In 1969, he made a film called Sam's Song, directed by a Greek man. It's a little scene film. Ten years later, at the height of Robert De Niro mania, after he had won an Academy Award, after he had starred in 1900 and worked with great filmmakers as he was heading towards taxi driver, he started a film called The Swap. His performance in The Swap is the same performance from Sam's Song, but was just recut into an entirely different film. Wow. So do we count that performance as one or two performances on screen? Interesting question. Nevertheless, if you do the math, as you can see that I have, you count 100 on screen performances. Did you make that revelation last night? Yeah, well, like 12, 14. OK, that's OK. That's what I'm talking about. This is the kind of work that goes into these episodes.

"A really long story about this. It's great. So after that initial 2005 Elizabeth I, what I guess would call a limited series on TV, you start working in films really for the first time. And I'll just mention a few titles and also note that you're almost out of the gate with out of the gate back to horses. But with unbelievable collaborators, first movie 2006 like minds you and Tony Collett, 2006, the good shepherd, directed by Robert De Niro, Elizabeth I golden age 2007 with Cate Blanchett. Savage graced 2007 with Julianne Moore, the yellow handkerchief 2008 with Kristen Stewart. I wondered if there were any major lessons that you learned from that period. I mean, what's interesting is that just sort of thematically or whatever, you were playing some pretty dark roles, dark characters, as well in those days, something that will come back to with the good nurse when we get to that. But I guess just when you think back to those early formative years in film, what stands out to you? The interesting thing is like when I hear those films, that formative is right because I had come from theater. I hadn't gone to drama school. I didn't know anything about film, or film acting. And for years, I just didn't get any parts because I would do these auditions and well, an example is like mine is this film that I did with Toni Collette and the director said to me, it was my first film and he said, you know, he was Australian, we shot it in Australia. He was like, you're not allowed to watch playback in and I was like, okay, great, good, good good. And I arrive in Australia and I'm playing this psycho kid and Toni Collette is playing my psychologist and she and I do our first scene and we're doing this scene for an hour or so and then Tony goes Eddie, should we go and watch playback? And I'm like, oh no, I'm not allowed. I'm not allowed to. She goes, no, come watch play me. Come on. It's like nobody the director said, I'm actually Eddie, come and watch playback.

And they just, they manufacture this crisis out of thin air. That is exactly what they did with COVID. It's what they did with George Floyd. It's what they did with Jussie Smollett with Russia collusion, it's what they're doing now with the Ukraine and I guarantee you if that tragic war ends tomorrow, the very next day, we're going to learn that systemic racism lies behind putting things in alphabetical order. And that using alphabetical order is a continuation of slavery and it was invented by a slaveholders conspiracy and the Catholic Church is tied up in it and we all have to repent using alphabetical order.

I don't like you brung back stuff, just got woke. Okay. Well you can offer you want to have a baseball game where there's only one black guy in the field and you want the first base coach to scream the n-word at him for the whole first Inning on national TV, because I'm in the movie.

Oscars 2020 Preview
"HI everybody. It's Peter Travers. Here here with this special edition of Popcorn which we're calling the Oscar popcorn because this weekend on February ninth exactly everybody will be watching. Being the Oscar telecast on ABC and probably having their own little ballot. Like I have here trying to figure out who's going to win this damn thing and if the person I don't like winds pushed I put my money on. That's what really happens. That's what people ask me on the street. So I'm GonNa take you through these main categories and and we'll see what will win what should win and we can argue. You can find me somewhere and we can argue about it. But I'm going to start with with best supporting actress. Because that's how the Academy Awards those that's always the first award that we say Kathy Bates in Richard Jewel. Laura dern in marriage in story Scarlett Johansson in Joe Rabbit Florence Pew in Little Women and Margot Robbie in bombshell so look. There's it's a lot of good people here and I have to say right at the outset. That Scarlett Johansson is one of those rare actors that has a nomination as best actress. Chris and best supporting actress marriage story for Best Actress in here supporting which usually gets you to win one and that usually that it's usually that one but it's it's not going to happen you know I'm sitting here saying did I read wrong. What happened to Jennifer Lopez and hustlers? Hasn't she been in this game since the release Lisa Hustler she has and yet the academy you bad people have decided that J.. Lo just wasn't Oscar material while you're wrong but look we we have to deal with rats here and I'm going to say that the person who will win in this category is also the person who should win. And that is Laura Burn and Laura dern in marriage story plays a divorce lawyer and she's a tough one and let's think of all the Hollywood people that are voting for this award and how every single one of them I'll wager. A BET has their own divorce lawyer and has been through this process. Maybe more than once. Maybe two we're three times to do it. And they find Laura Dern Dunn's in this movie something spectacular it's also one of the few awards. I think that marriage story story is going to win. But Laura Dern has never won an Oscar. This will be her first time. Everyone loves her. We all love and big little lies and I think this is her time on so let her have it all right. I'm moving onto best supporting actor. Tom Hanks in a beautiful day in the neighborhood. Anthony Hopkins in the two popes Al Al Pacino in the Irishman Joe Pesci in the Irishman and Brad Pitt in once upon a time in Hollywood. Look you're talking to a big Irishman fan here so if it was me saying come up for the gold it would be Joe. Patchy I know Joe Pesci doesn't do any publicity. He basically sticks fix to himself. He's probably tough guy in real life as the gangster that he plays in the Irishman but that performance is amazing and won won his first Oscar for another score says he movie goodfellas where he was the most scary gangster. You can see here. He's kind of quiet dawn. So if I'm I'm giving them it would be Joe Patchy but the academy is giving this award and no one. No one can win. This except Brad Pitt. These other people here Tom Hanks Anthony Hopkins Al Pacino and Peci all have won Oscars so they already have the gold. Do you realize his full career. Brad Brad Pitt has never won an academy award game over people. This is it Brad. You're going to get in once upon a time in Hollywood playing a stuntman. It man playing somebody who's been around the business. I think it's irresistible for Hollywood to say I'm going to reject one of my own. Plus he was great in the movie. You seem to hear my voice that I have a little bit of a problem. Yeah I do. Because that's not a supporting performance at all that his part is the equal who of his Co Star Leonardo DiCaprio's WHO's nominated for best actor. So why is he in that category. I think they want to win. And Brad you might as well prepare repair your speech right now okay. I am now moving onto best actress. Cynthia Haribo in Harriet Scarlett Johansson in marriage story. Sir Sharon in little women. Charlie's Sharon in bombshell and Renee Zellweger in Judy. What Best S. actress award so far from the Golden Globes to the critics choice awards has it Renee Zellweger one? She's won all of them. So is there any possibility ability here for something else. I mean. Look what Charlie. Stern did in bombshell. She not only plays Megan Kelly. The makeup geniuses have made her look exactly exactly like her and Charlie's has talked exactly like are they love bio pics there so she should be really strong. Social Ronin is like twenty five years old. She's he's on her fourth Oscar nomination. This is incredible and Scarlett Johansson. Like I said nominated for best. Supporting actress and Best Actress. Cynthia revolt is playing Harry Tubman and she also wrote the song from the movie which is nominated. That happened to somebody last year. Didn't it yes it was lady. Eating Gaga Lady Gaga was nominated for writing that wonderful song from stars born and his best actress. But what did you win. She won best song and that was it so I have to say that again. I would give this award person late to search for Ronin just because I think to be that young and to be that consistently brilliant is amazing and her performance in little women. Is that good. But it's Rene as I talk about. How Hollywood would love bio-pics this is? Judy Garland that she's playing judy. This is one of their own. Did they ever give. Judy Garland her own Oscar Competitive Competitive Acting Oscar. Never and I think for that reason not only will renee Zellweger win best actress but she will win for Oscar. Judy Garland on never had. It's their way of saying Judy. We love you. We were so stupid not to give it to you. And we're going to give it to Rene in honor of you. This is how Hollywood works. It's really crazy. But if you're betting on this you have to bet crazy. Aright best actor Antonio Banderas in pain and gory. Leonardo di Caprio in once upon a time in Hollywood Adam driver in marriage story what came Phoenix and joker and Jonathan Pryce in the two popes. I look at this category and before I get into. Who Will Win and who should win? I've I've got to say academy what you have against Comedians. And what do you have against Eddie Murphy. That he's not nominated for Dole. Might as my name what you have against Adam Sandler who proved his dramatic chops in uncut gems. Like nobody can believe and yet they have it they only like to give Oscars to actors serious actors who played comic roles. Ause they hate anybody who's making a living as a comic to actually win this war so this year's been going along I've had this feeling that this was Adam drivers to lose that performance in marriage story is one of the best things he's ever done or that I've seen this year and yet there's this other guy and who's that other guy he's Joaquin Phoenix plane joker. Sometimes there's that kind of performance sometimes. There's there's one that just so dominates the screen. That is such an act of immersion of from an actor in a raw. Yeah Joaquin was scary. He was sometimes funny. He was always touching even though he's playing somebody who's totally out of his mind and a lot of this movie his in his mind. What Cain has been nominated several times before and never one Joaquin? This is yours. I can't believe any set of circumstances. Stances if you WANNA bet the whole house on something and somebody to win it's going to be Joaquin Phoenix as best actor for joker game over all right. We're ready now to move on. I'm going to best director now. This is one of the most exciting categories because these people will these particular men and save and because Hollywood as wont of decided that even though there were more women directing movies than ever before four last year. They couldn't find any to nominate which is of course absurd because Greta Gerwig directed little women which is nominated as best picture and they. I thought no I'm just GONNA do five men like we always do what happened. You people sort of learned a couple of years ago when you nominated Greta. GERWIG quick for Ladybird didn't give it to her. But you nominated her. The KADEMI is ninety two years old. Now how many women has given an academy award for directing one. And that's Kathryn Bigelow for hurt locker. Ninety two years one award hang your head in shame name anyway not knocking any of these men that did get nominated. But there's one in there that I would sacrifice for Greta Gerwig but you you try to guess who that is anyway. Here they are. Martin Scorsese the Irishman Todd Phillips. For Joker Sam Mendes for nine thousand nine hundred Seventeen Quentin Tarantino eighteen. O for once upon a time in Hollywood and Bung June hope for parasite every one of these guys you can make a case for. Martin Scorsese Z.. To me is a master the grandmaster who only has one Oscar for directing and then the Irishman is doing some of his best work. Ever Quentin Tarantino. Not No with once upon a time in Hollywood is also a peak form and yet I'm saying this category is going to between two other the directors one of them being the South Korean Vong June Hall for parasite a Foreign Language Film. That seems to have got everybody excited about what's possible and then Sam Mendes for nine hundred seventeen a world war one movie that is constructed to look like it was done in in one continuous. Take how do you resist that. You don't even though I think they would really like to give their best director award worked. Bon John. How it's going to be for Sam Mendes for creating a war movie like no war movie we've ever seen before so sam I think think it's yours but if you're getting out there and you WanNa go to Bung Jun Ho? You know you might do it because there's always a surprise in these contests we can't go. Oh by what the odds are we have to go by sometimes the academy saying I have an instinct for this. I have a feeling this is the right way to go all right last category. Are we ready best picture of the year Ford versus Ferrari the Irishman Joe. Joe Rabbit Joker her little women marriage story nineteen seventeen once upon a time in Hollywood and parasite here is is the one you know every year I do this. It's between one or two movies this year. I can't reduce anything to to the Irishman my estimation a classic one for the ages. Martin Scorsese. Ed Is Best Robert De Niro Pacino. Joe Patchy making a mob movie about old-age age about the end of a mobster. This is the punishment that they get for the lives they live. There's nobody in their lives there alone. It's a tragedy Quentin went and Tarintino. Once upon a time in Hollywood is writing about Hollywood in the sixties and about a time that he thought was the last creative burst of Hollywood Hollywood and doing that. Nineteen seventeen again the World War One movie shot to make it look like. It's one continue steak and parasite a movie about a Korean Rian family in which they exploited the people they work for and then are exploited by the people working for them it is a classic. These are four incredible classics. So what am I gonNA do. What am I going to tell you? What's out there that you have to say? This is the winner and I'm going to go with with all excuses. No excuses in fact to my love for the Irishman. But I think this is the year of Quentin Tarantino. I I think once upon a time in Hollywood being a love letter to Hollywood and being voted on by people who live and work in Hollywood Quentin Tarantino despite right brilliant work with pulp fiction inglorious bastards reservoir dogs Django unchained has never won a Best Picture Oscar or a best director Oscar. Never it's never happened. What better time than now? When he saying Hollywood I love you? I think it's time Hollywood to say to Quentin Tarantino. I love you back back. So you've got it watch the show and afterwards we'll have a discussion.

Awards Season: Oscar Nominations
"We have the golden globes recently today we get the critics choice awards tomorrow very early in the morning they will be announcing the academy award nominations so it's the awards season some times we can glean what will probably happen with the Academy Awards by what happens in the golden globes not always sometimes many times it's wall has been monitoring the critics choice awards and I think we should start there to see if maybe the critics choice awards are either going or falling in line with the golden globes or offering a different message if you will as far as what should be honored this year from first look the critics have got a much more on point and then lie with me then the glow okay let's go down some the category Best Actor yes Joaquin Phoenix for joker given that Best Actress Renee Zellweger for Judy yes best supporting actor Brad Pitt for once upon a time in Hollywood surprises there yep best supporting actress Laura Dern for marriage story he didn't see it heard was okay best young actor romaine Griffin Davis for the judge a rabid movie don't know if there are a lot of kids related films on there but Hey sure give it to him best acting ensemble the Irishman art is a good okay good let's look let's let's slow down and talk about that but what I don't know if they're put it this way is far as acting goes I was very underwhelmed by the Irishman I I really think people are more impressed by the names will histories and legacies of the people involved in the movie as opposed to the actual performances most people were saying that they really like the the understated performance of Joe Pesci yeah it was nice he didn't really cost a lot he didn't beat anyone with a baseball bat but as far as an acting performance I don't think was all that special I don't think Robert de Niro's performance as the Irishman was special it wasn't anything that I said wow that was vintage Robert Dinero it wasn't like there was any particular moment or monologue or passage the people will come away and say we're gonna be quoting that for years we can quote the godfather we can quote good fellas in an area casino what have you there wasn't really anything all that special quotable about the Irishman as far as the ensemble cast it was great to have all these big names together yeah but they had big names together in the Expendables did make it a great movie big names who were to gather it almost seemed like he was with one last ride together for these particular group of actors for this particular genre and I had heard all the hype in I'm a guy who loves the godfather yeah I'm a guy who loves casino and Goodfellas varying degrees but I loved the genre as a whole love the sopranos so that's something I I I know this genre I appreciate the genre when I saw the Irishman it was really weird it was weird what they did to Robert De Niro and his allies making them blue or whatever so he looked like the actual person it was not necessary they could have chosen a different actor if you're gonna do all that was extracting I did like the fact that it's so it's a movie based on real people real incidents in history and it almost quite like the have the story line and as real events happened it breaks away in the show you this person was actually killed by a bullet to the head nineteen seventy one or whatever and I'll show you a still frame of the actual crime scene or something like that that's something I enjoy it but as far as the acting performances there were not we talk about Star Wars hi Scott Walker same thing in the sense of there were no wow moments for me there was nothing which said to me is like wow I've never seen that before no they were getting killed by basically getting whacked like okay we seen people get whacked like this before because they've already told all those stories just changing the name to fictional people another movie so what we see the Irishman which is based on true events and everything not special I didn't think the performances were special that's not a number that are best acting ensemble right okay I would rather Avengers with that because as far as I'm concerned the acting by Robert Downey junior in Avengers in game was stellar okay well I mean look got it and maybe that's why Avengers in game got best action movie finally can best visual effects of got best animated feature is difficult yes yeah best costume design yes Ruthie Carter for dolomite is my name give it to him let's stop right there if you haven't seen dolomite is my name please see it isn't available on Netflix I think you will view Eddie Murphy in a whole different light a whole new light any have best comedy yeah I agree Eddie Murphy has not only reinvented himself but in this particular performance he's just an actor he's not telling jokes like a comedian he is embodying Rudy ray Moore someone completely different and it's telling you the story of how Rudy ray Moore had to reinvent himself from musician to stage performer two eight kind of comedian telling almost wraps stories on stage right right if you know the history and this is a quintessential LA movie in the sense of Rudy ray Moore is inextricably linked to the history of arts and entertainment in Los Angeles yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah you will recognize the landmarks and everything and that is why eighty Murphy deservedly so also got the lifetime achievement award other film awards go to Quentin Tarantino for once upon a time in Hollywood no surprise a Best Director it was a tie Sam Mendes for nineteen seventeen and bomb June hole for parasite can we just go ahead and assume given Hollywood's reaction and also the foreign correspondents reaction to nineteen seventeen that that's probably going to be best picture Best Actor definitely nominated tomorrow for the Oscar nominations yeah we'll probably will win and I say that for this reason for the foreign correspondents association for the golden globes to give nineteen seventeen best drama award what are the ward was and it had not even been released in theaters yet at that point bright I just said to me that it leaves the Hollywood portion critics correspondence whatever they pretty much made up their mind which says to me Hollywood as far as the voting academy members have pretty much made up their mind and they've probably already decided that this is going to be the movie I've heard nothing but superlatives about it I haven't seen it but I'm just reading the tea leaves it is going to get the nomination but I'm saying if I were to place any money nineteen seventy this Best Picture and Best Director just because of all these other indications I'm getting I agree totally agree best sci-fi or horror which is in an Oscar related category not to to my knowledge but us it's good thank I I I I saw the movie everything was great yeah so I'll be in Emma Jordan Peele fan but I did think the movie is great I do appreciate how he tells very different stories that's the story we haven't seen before I can I can watch it and say like wow that's something different is not the typical horror stories come to typical sci fi story has a little twist at the end is what he usually is going to do now is going to be known for that in the way that M. night Shyamalan is known for that I can appreciate what he does I just didn't think the movie was spectacular yeah but I don't know who would love you to hear it I don't know what was up again so when we come back we'll continue with these critics choice awards and also forecast possibly with coming tomorrow morning with the Oscar nominations this the
The Entertainment of 2019: Year in Review
"It interesting year for of the world of entertainment and in terms of the movie screen to get to this explosion of Netflix and all these other different platforms you don't have to go to the big movie theater unless you want the full immersive experience and I always suggest you also get some cookies because as the time of the year but just I think the wives with you enjoy the experience but but I know some of the things the fact you have this posted on your website James person dot com is the ruling over a declining box office because here we have all this if you know the big money is made international especially China will than that with the whole trade the issues going back and forth the editing of certain films so what's going on here is this eventually the demise of the traditional box office expectations in the traditional theaters another been saying that for years with new technology well it it's being yeah it's shrinking kind of traditional movie other than the big franchise brand box office because even though the box office has gone down for the fifth time this decade it's down a record number and the executives and the Hollywood met and many of them I work with they are living in a kind of a denial world I I they know that if these two technological things are you spoke about the fact that you can have a very powerful home theater experience now you know with everybody has a big screen high definition television you're bringing some robots was a I they could pretend like they're part of the crowd you know they can make noise going on cell phones whatever you like yeah but usually because Disney bought Lucasfilm and marble and they have all the biggest intellectual property ownership concept movies they took eighty percent of the top ten so the top ten films of the year eight out of the ten from Disney that's a record Disney also took in ten billion dollars worldwide in their film box office which is also a record but at the same time the box office is down the number of people go to the movies is down and I think it's not just because of the technology I think it's because of the contact and I think what it is is that there's these old concepts things like story characters people long for in his words of Martin Scorsese got highly criticized for speaking out against Marvel superhero movies but there there are more of like a thrill ride in many cases than they are white the kind of story telling that Hollywood became famous for and so because of that you know like the number one movie by actually number one movie of the year and of all time is the ventures and gag which is always the classic not that it's it's a bad movie I mean it's an entertaining movie buddy it's it's all action special effects sci fi superhero fantasy type thing and the others get in the top ten there's captain Marvel there's spider man far from home with the Star Wars the latest Star Wars wars installment the risers creek sky worker these are all from the same bill during it yet all marble or Lucasfilm in there these kinds of movies many of course you have sequels like Toy Story four and frozen was it the golden read books and we're gonna get more and more is that all is well yeah but some of that you get to the new generations and its radio Disney used to do as a by the way for the tuning in talking James person Jim person dot com is my second house over a pop culture among other things but you know Disney had a formula for years back to real DHS and everything else stay AT and into the theaters before that alone every seven years or so they would release like Snow White or something and then they'd go back into the vault and the they keep capturing new generations was masterful now one of the big deals this year's Disney plus the debt is just phenomenal with with what's there you don't really need a lot of other things but it's it's it's all available now so that's another example of how quickly the staff changes your inner exactly what you're talking about by the way for new generations of a new iteration was the remake it with live action The Lion King which was the number two movie any captured a whole new generation of of movie that had captured a previous generation so yeah Disney has the intellectual property so that when they launch their streaming service Disney plus they did something that a lot of people in Hollywood one really freaked out about and then they had a a movie starring Anna Kendrick cold no well it was never released in any it went direct to streaming we haven't even heard that concept direct just dreaming twenty one Disney does it then the people in the industry say oh my gosh this is a trend in the Irish men bad movie that's generating all the on her because of her the foreman should Martin Scorsese unfortunately it has that crazy man Robert De Niro at that but he's consistent and you got a treatment because his movie the molar report on ice the musical didn't do well this year so what is so loved that concept I really do I really do and I I would have given them the Laurie yeah I would go see that if Robert Muller was ice skating I would go see it for sure but but this one it went there was a lady and the tramp remake Disney which and that way director strict streaming I was mentioning the Irishman and there's another movie called marriage is story these are both Oscar bait movies after only one month they went streaming so there could be a new trend in that's good that caters to people that create their own entertainment peered at home and but the only thing is I mean I anecdotally I mean I have friends an average six myself I remember you know we were when we just had cable and all of a sudden we had out hundreds of cable channels and sitting there and I couldn't find anything to watch on cable channel and now people experience that they say oh I'm going through the cable channels I'm going through Netflix I don't see anything I want to watch so I'm gonna watch it's a wonderful life for the eighteen hi so that means there's a vacuum out there for I guess what we would call traditional entertainment and maybe family friendly which is by the way in the end that's where Hollywood makes most of its money because all the top ten films are pretty much the you know there there's no all over you friendly films at the most there's a P. G. thirteen type superhero films that have some action scenes chill Hollywood makes its money with family friendly films and then they attack families with the awards speaking of
Critics’ Choice: ‘The Irishman,’ ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ Lead Movie Nominations
"Two hours talk to Kevin car this morning good morning Kevin Kevin Kerr our entertainment guy who has the the nominations out today from the critics choice association the CC a it's the twenty fifth time you guys have done this and I guess that you have you must have voted for some of these nominations right good morning Michael yeah I'm actually pretty happy with how the nominations have come out we've got them ready for the critics choice awards which happens on Sunday January twelfth at seven PM on the C. W. and this is it's it's what's leading the list is the Irishman with fourteen nominations which is of course marks were Stacey's latest almost Robert deniro Al Pacino Joe Pesci all getting nominations for acting others also once upon a time in Hollywood Quinn turned taking those look back at that what could happen in the sixties start with twelve nominations along with little women getting nine nominations nineteen seventeen which is Sam Mendes's the upcoming World War one epic I am a marriage story with eight Jo Jo rabbit the joker in Paris like each get seven so it's been spread around for the nominations it looks like there's a lot of great movies on Netflix yes speaking of spreading things around you got a couple of actors you're getting nominations both for movie and for television work which I think is interesting well yeah you got Laura Dern whose whose you guys having a bit of a resurgence in her career she's got both for big little lies a marriage story the critics choice nominations include both television and movies and another big win is is for streaming not only is that happening with of course big nominations for Netflix of Amazon it on the chart television side but the Irishman is is that a huge win for Netflix getting that many nominations I think there are almost thirty this twenty nine nominations for Netflix alone with you in the film categories did speaking of the Irishman so we mentioned Dinero Ficino Joe Pesci from that for Best Actor Pacino at and I guess Joe Pesci best Supporting Actor in it's a very different performers from him it's not the over the top crazy guy very restrained in and is that what it took to get him out of retirement well I think working with Martin Scorsese again was a big deal working with Robert De Niro yeah but it did give them the opportunity because they do a de aging process digitally so this movie is also getting visual effects awards but that gives a batch you chance to play a very different character which is I think what got him such traction this time around I think the biggest problem he's got is he a member of the channel might split the vote for fans of the Irish men and might end up going to somebody else yeah well merit story you know coming in with a lot of nominations and including I guess a screen plays as well so I I I I know I've heard that this is a real predictor for the Oscars how is that does that real yeah I mean it's nothing thirty six actually we got the golden globe nominations showing up later today which are also seen as somewhat of a projector the reason this one China other critics choice awards a lines a little bit more is because they don't split out drama versus comments on are you voted for the nominations do you also vote for the final
