Snubs and surprises from this year's Golden Globe nominations

"The globe. Nominations happened and boy. They'd seemed a mess. How do you feel hi. How are you feeling about words and being back. I guess i'm glad to have award season back though isn't it. We can discuss specific to these nominations. I feel a little bit like charlie brown with the football because every year we talk about make fun of the hollywood foreign press association. And let's be clear we're going to continue to make fun of them. They are traditionally. It's a small group of international journalists. Who do not have a lot of renown really know outside of the fact that they are in this mysterious priests small group of people. They really like celebrities or their definition of another other thing. We'll discuss and their star fuckers and they give nominations to people they want in a room rather than a merit or at least our interpretation of merit. It seems like to win an award. You just have to go to as many parties as possible and then think the association from the stage. We know that there are always bad. Choices always mysterious traces. We're always like what is going on. Who are these people. Why do we do this. But i would say even for the hollywood foreign press association and even for a film here had some challenges aka pandemic theaters being close and far fewer films released unusual. These are real embarrassing. And i woke up just being like. Are you serious. We have to do this again. Like come on yeah i. It's hard to know we've gone through looking glass or not some of these. I think we're fairly standard and expected in their plenty of movies that i'm sure we'll be talking about when we get to the oscar nominations in a couple months but there were a handful of nominations. What what. I will generously called the surprises. That just took my breath away. That i i think even in my wildest dreams i could not have imagined the fbi concocting so. Let's just talk about them because this award show is happening really soon. It's february twenty eight. It's gonna be hosted by. Amy poehler and tina fey. It's going to be on nbc. And so we're going to actually having awards season to cover for real for real. I think we have to start with the jared leto nomination for the little things. This is probably the single biggest. W t.f of this collection and it's funny because when we talked about the little things on the show last week i think we both walked away from the little things thinking. Jared leto is pretty entertaining in it. And maybe rising to the challenge of this camp script and that being said i. I never considered him. A worthy report surprised to see this nomination. I enjoyed watching him in the little things in the context of the little things which was not a film that worked at all and so at least someone was doing something you know and i was talking with friends about it. There's like a really a nice like vintage. This is bad feeling to the little things that i found pretty comforting. You know it's like it's not like someone just made a twitter thread into a movie on an iphone and like someone wrote a script and they tried to do this old ninety staying. And then jared leto is doing the weird villain and having too much fun with it. It's like i know what's happening here even if it's not working and and i'm glad to have it back. I do not know that it needed to rise to the level of golden globes ovation especially because the golden globes supporting category does not differentiate between drama and comedy in some of the comedy. Nominations things get wild. But that's because you're kind of you're filling it out there some extra slots. A lot of people didn't get nominated in supporting actor. Jared leto like weird joke of serial killer. I think he's right. Can we talk about that for a second. This is dangerous rabbit hole to go down. I have no idea. The truth is. I don't know i think you're meant to believe that he did. Not if you haven't seen this movie. Sorry for spoiling it for you. It's unspoiled in many ways because it has an ambiguous ending of sword. I- i- i- jared. Leto obviously is has won an academy award. He is a very famous person has been celebrated. He's also like kind of a joke. You know like. I really enjoy him as a performer. A famous person. But he's kind of a joke. I mean he's he so Has all of the pretensions. And absurdity of the method actor who sort of you know pulling pranks on his cast members by trying to get into character and so outside and so masking his beauty all the time with these ridiculous roles you know like in the little things that character has like a is is fat and walks with a limp and why it's just pure actually affect nation and the role is actually affectation and the asia was impressed by that or impressed. By the idea of having jared sit in on their award show. But jared. Leto is not tom hanks. For example someone who did not get knocked out.

Fresh update on "tom hanks" discussed on Texas Financial Advisory Show

"Elliot, you know, I think there did you ever have any relatives? Whether was aunts, uncles, grand parents that they would They had some rules for you that you did not appreciate. I can't believe that you were always compliant with all of the elders wishes. Yes. Oh, goodness. Um yes, Church. Let's go with that. We'll just go with that. Okay. Okay, but he's here to prove us. Wrong, Mark. Exactly. Exactly. So we're gonna talk about legacy planning. In the next two segments. And, you know you think about all of the moving parts. I think when we get older, and you know the way I kind of look at the legacy plan is if you hate your family, then don't do any planning, right. But most of us love our family, so we don't want to leave headaches behind. And if you go into these types of things and don't have a plan and all of a sudden lips You know, Dad had a car wreck. He's not here anymore. Now Mom's trying to figure out where all the stuff is. What do I do now? That's what you don't want to happen. You want to have a plan in place? I guess when we're thinking of a legacy plan, when should we start trying to because that's a part of the tight T F A financial freedom Road map to your advisers put together for clients. When should we start thinking about it? We start thinking when we hit the age of 80. Is that the perfect time? It is hard to kind of wrap your brain around that you need to have a will. Part attorneys. Maybe you actually need to trust But again, that's part of our process. Here in Texas Branch advisory that we help you navigate what you need What you don't need. Watch that movie during the whole snowstorm. We watched a lot of movies when we could look at power. But we finally watched that movie silly about the You know the fantastic movie. Tom Hanks is the pilot landing the plane on the Hudson. We didn't It wasn't on Tom Hanks was actually like the documentary. The people spoke on the plane. And there was a service that their flight attendant that talked about how you know we all are going to die. You know, we don't get out of this alive. You may have one day you may have one week. You may have 50 years, but it's inevitable and again. There's there's a process to get things in order, because when you do pass away Someone else has to be going through that, and we have really spent a lot of time energy money on investing on ways to make it easy for clients to be able to get that in order and as quick as they want. You know whether we could do it same day or You need time to review it. Couple weeks, whatever, but we're there to help you get it in place. You know, one of the guests realities that came out of what we're dealing with. Still with this pandemic is How short life is, and it's been very sad that we've we've had several people join our firm as clients because their spouse or level in passed away. Tuco vid, and they're needing our assistance to wrap things up or transfer accounts or process beneficiary forms. And, you know, it's always a wake up call for my firm and myself that the life's short, you know, and there are things that you have to be a responsible adult and get in place, But we have taken a lot of time. Energy and effort to make it easy for you to check those boxes and get those in place. If you'd like to request we have Ah, report that you go to request with simply texting the word A state s t A T. You are never here with show that's 844832 74 69 again. This is a very high level report about the different documents that you might need in place. Sometimes you just need to do it Once. Other times you need to update and change as your life circumstances changes. But again if you'd like that report, the word is a state and you can text it to our show here at 844 T f a show and you'll get that report now. So you think about all of the moving parts in a state plans, legacy plans and all of that. Are people surprised how much is involved with coming up with this plan? Whether it's AH, will a trust to not everybody needs to trust we all need will, But a lot of people could really benefit from a trust. But that's a different and that's Ah, that's kind of really getting in there. But then we have powers of attorney for health care for our finances. I mean, where we can't make that decision. We want somebody that we trust to make the decisions. At least we have made our wishes known. When we can't make those decisions are people generally aware how much is involved in this type of planning? Not until we mean yes and no. There's an emotional component to doing this and I think that I see that with each and every person whether it's right at the beginning In the middle of the end, there's an emotional component to it. But you know again, we just want to help you facilitated. Get it in place. If it needs to be changed later, we'll do that. But it's also important to understand what needs to go. Where in the fact that Let's say all of your net worth is tied up in your retirement accounts or your cash assets, right? Your year's savings or checking account. You're Investments. Well, those assets have been a fisheries and those beneficiaries will actually trump your will are your trust? You also need to be really careful on If you label the beneficiary of Sarah Retirement account as your trust. What does that mean for taxes applied to the retirement account when you die, and so there's just these different moving parts that we want to help you get into place because you could make one simple mistake and end up leaving. Iris more than you actually left your loved ones, Which seems crazy, because again, people think. Well, Jesus. What's that? The state exemption. It's like $11 million. I'm not worth that. Why would I have a tax problem for my death? Well, If your money is in a retirement account, you owe taxes while you're alive. But you also taxes when you die, and if it's not set up in the right format, it's quite possible that the Iris will actually inherit more than your loved ones. And so those air, just different components of the estate planning. That we put into place that you don't get If you're saying going to legalzoom dot com or the Suzie Orman websites Now those will give you your documents. But again, you could spend a lot of time and effort on documents that could hurt you in the aspect of doing it the right way. You know what you think about the importance of legacy planning or estate planning. And I think a lot of people go well, It's really just for the wealthy. I don't know. I don't have enough to even do that. How do How do you mean? Because I think it's probably warm. It's important for all of us to do it. Maybe even more important. We don't have a lot of money. Because at least we had a lot of money. There'd be money there to pay the taxes. I suppose it all of that. But then you think Well, I'm sure all rich people have all this planned out. Well, we know that's not true. Right? Prince $200 million The state passed away unexpectedly didn't have anything in place. Aretha Franklin passed away. She had three different hand written wills that they found in her home. But they were different, and so then you get the squabbling going on. Well, I think this one's one that's in play. Not that one because I get more from that one. I mean, so if you don't do these types of things you're causing a lot of issues like Aretha did not. Probably on purpose, but just never really finalized. I mean, that leaves a lot of headaches behind, doesn't it? Yeah, most definitely and talk about the chaos that comes from that And really the only people that went in that situation, our lawyers. Fire your lawyer? No, no, not that kind. But you are. I don't know, Say my school of law, but but I'm not doing probate. But again when you have that conflict, nobody's going to settle it. Like okay, let's have Ah, have a sit down dinner and go over these three wills and figure out which one we should probate. You know, it creates chaos and money changes people and when someone dies, and you're dealing with emotion and money and stuff, you know, of course there's gonna be conflict. And so I remember. I don't know about 10 years ago, I Had a kind of mind that she was a professional antique er, meaning like she had all this stuff everywhere. In her house, and some stuff was really valuable. Other stuff look like you should be in a garage cell for 25 cents, But it was really hard to decipher what goes to what? What was the value? What was valuable? What wasn't what was trash. She actually had a Picasso painting because of painting that was so small, like Like a five by seven painting, and it looks like something that you would buy it. Hobby lobby for $15. But this this Picasso painting was very valuable. And you would never have known right. It just was just little painting. And yes, I had his name on it..

Economics In Space

"The life of an astronaut. It sounds so awesome so adventurous astronaut. Doug wheelock says though most of the time it's actually pretty routine regimented. You wake up have breakfast do a bunch of scientific experiments and then you eat lunch. Then more experiments exercise dinner and go to sleep and of course there are no shops or movie theaters are banks or anything like that. So the economy aboard the international space station is all about trade. The interesting thing is with food. Of course the russians food supply is much different than our food supply. The russians is. Doug really loved the us deserts which were like brownies and cakes. And he's freeze dried packets and the american astronauts really loved the russian soups. Apparently the borscht is excellent. Excellent is a relative term. Of course doug says that aboard the space station. Most of the food is actually pretty bland. But every three months a big event would happen. Doug and his crew would get a shipment from earth and the resupply missions were a big deal remember. It costs hundreds of millions of dollars to send a shuttle to the space station. So when those shipments actually came says doug it was a very special moment and in those shipments would be like personal items letters from home loved ones. Yeah who cares. There was also this precious commodity just before they closed the hatch on the launch pad. They would throw like a bag of fresh fruit like oranges. Lemons apples vegetables as well aboard the space station. Duck says produce was like platinum. Yeah and when the shipments would right he says everybody would get together and the excitement was electric. We'd all get in the the node one. Which is our kitchen area and flowed all the fruit and vegetables. Okay so it's like christmas morning. But doug says everybody would only get one or two pieces of produce. Just wasn't that much of it and so here's where the trade comes in. Doug knew that the russians loved onions. They're great for flavoring food but doug loved fruit above everything else at. I'd say like mad. I would take an orange over this onion any day. You know fyodor. Your chicken was mike. Commander said hey fyodor What a trade an onion for do of a like an extra orangey goes all. You don't want your onion douglas's that orange trade legendary in his mind still because for doug that orange was not just a snack. It was a connection to earth. It was like his companion was funny. I had i at one point. I kind of laughed. Because i i felt like tom. Hanks and castaway with wilson. The volleyball hung onto like one orange for like it seemed like probably three weeks at a became sort of by crewmate. Of course the space station economy was not just about food though services. Were also a big part of it and different people aboard. The space station had different things. They could contribute because they had such different backgrounds. There were scientists engineers pilots so skill sets seriously skill sets became part of our commerce as well. Dug for instance has an engineering background and he says for him one of his least favorite parts of life aboard the space station. Where all the scientific experiments they had to do. Whatever their background. This was just part of what they did. Every day and the space station would typically be running more than a hundred experiments at any given moment scientific research about food plants medicines. It's just a full day and it's also part of the mission of the space station. But for doug honestly it was kind of a slog sometimes the way out of it economics doug discovered this a couple of weeks in his mission when one of the scientists aboard. The space station told him that there was a big problem she said. Hey the party's broken. I mean that does sound like a big problem. I feel panicked at least not what you wanna hear aboard a space station. That's for sure. No but doug background was in engineering. So he understands systems and he says fixing things comes really naturally to him and the scientists. This woman named shannon knew this about doug shannon looked at me. She said if you fix the party. I'll do all of your science for the rest of the day and i'm thinking that is a deal and a half. I'll take that deal. So i got my by tool bill called houston and said you know houston. We have a problem. The party's broken. Doug says actually the toilet broke quite a bit and whenever it happened whenever the toilet broke doug's economic value pretty much shot to infinity. I figured out that if you're out in space and you can fix the potty you're like lord of the universe but the real commodity on the space station's as doug was earth itself because he says when you see the whole planet against this backdrop of outerspace every day it just changes the way that you value things it just this raging ball of life in this vast desert of darkness. You know that takes root like very very quickly and it's like wow there's my planet everything ever known you know every word ever spoken. You know everybody. I've ever loved is down there and i'm not there and so that's when it really kind of strikes. You is When i talk to students and young children we talk about our favorite planet and things and i said pluto was my favorite planet. I said but then i went to space and now earth is my favorite planet. Thanks says when you're in space you start to crave all things earth and human evidence of life becomes

News of the World Movie review

"Probably safe to say the discourse on that one has had its moment in the film twitter bubble but we have not had a chance to weigh in yet on the show. So we're going to get to wonder woman nineteen eighty-four a bit later. I though another christmas day released that makes its on-demand debut this weekend. It's news of the world directed by paul greengrass and starring. Tom hanks news of the world is adapted from the two thousand sixteen novel by paulette gyles. Let's hear some of the trailer. Gentlemen my name is captain jefferson kyle kit tonight debris the news from across this great world of ours so they pay you to tell story. I never heard that is the thing a main could do not a rich man. Keep patients that you can see took part. Stop shop talk. You understand. English call says your name. Is joanna liam burger in the took you when they attack your family. Six years prior her mother father and sister over. Well i passed. It is a strange world. Michael when a tom hanks western directed by paul greengrass. Who worked with hangs on captain phillips after directing three of the jason. Bourne films gets lost in the shuffle. But that's pretty much what's happened with news of the world. There's been little talk of it since it did open in theaters. Some theaters on christmas day. It does come to streaming services as we mentioned this weekend set. Shortly after the civil war of the movie stars hanks as jefferson kid. A printer who lost his business in the war and now travels from town to town. Reading newspapers allowed to gathered pain audiences on his journey. He comes across a young german girl. Played by helena's zongol. Who was kidnapped as a baby by akilah tribe and rescued years later by union. Soldiers kid is charged with returning her to her surviving relatives but she'd rather returned to the kiawah the only family she's ever known that's the central narrative. But it's safe to say that's not what's most compelling about news of the world at least right now michael and i were discussing some of the titles for possible review on the show you lean toward news of the world saying this it would feed naturally into talking about how we get our news and what the news has been lately having now seen it. I'm pretty sure. I know what you're getting at but i'd love to have you explain and i'm eager to hear if you think this topicality is to the movies credit or to its detriment. Well you know when you talk about any movie or anything that's worth talking about in the culture yet. You have to respond to the times. You're living in doesn't mean that everything gets bent toward particular historical malay. Were in right now. I mean it's it's it's just sort of stunning. How distracting everything in the world in our country least is is crowding out so much of our head space for anything else and it's I think i think what's going on in news of the world at least As greengrass co wrote and directed it is you. Have you have a film. that's speaking i think. Directly although not too bluntly a to certain strains in the american spirit and the american sort of rugged individualism western ethos have a guy like Tom hanks character.

She gently wakes kid up to tell him the tooth fairies about to arrive which he decided to do. Randomly in a British accent river woke up totally confused and punches. His mother and the face. She falls back and screams in perfect C. SHARP. Of course her wings get caught on the rig which topples onto a lamp causing a small fire. In the meantime the kid crying wildly runs into the kitchen and dials. Nine one one telling them that. A lady with ways. Straightest deal me and set fire to our House.

Kelly Clarkson is missing a tooth because her son had punched it out of Kelly. Clarkson goes a little bit too far in acting out the role of the tooth fairy for her son and your last story of a problematic parent comes from Peter. Gross Comedian Amy Schumer and her husband. Chris Fisher are the proud parents of a beautiful eleven month. Old Baby boy named Gene David Fisher. But that wasn't always the little guys name. Schumer revealed on her podcast this week that she changed her son's name after a friend pointed out that the original name the name they put on his birth certificate last. May might have earned. The boy considerable scorn as he reached adolescence. Little jeans original Middle Name Attell. After comedian and friend Dave attell that his first two names would be gene. Attell which sounds more than a little bit. Like the word genital. Maybe not that much to use sophisticated. Npr listener but to the merciless. Sixth Grade Boys Little Jeans Future. It would have been a veritable goldmine teasing perfect storm on par with being the classmate of a kid named Mike Raj or buts or Anita Weiner Schumer Wade. Many options after realizing her oversight including changing the boy's name to the baby formerly known as Gina. Tell but then realized she could just change his middle name to David.

Which of these was the real story of a celebrity parenting mistake? They all some pretty unbelievable but I think I'm going to have to go with gene. A tell gene attell the former name of Amy Schumer is baby. Well defined the correct answer. Well please listen to this. It was gene attell Fisher but we realized that we by accident named our son genital. Tent was Amy Schumer Star. Cast three girls one Keith. Congratulations David you got right.

They're all important in amazing. Thank you so much. Bye Bye bye and now the game where we ask people who've done remarkable things to do just one more Tom. Hanks's had an amazing career. With as many blockbuster films bestselling books two Oscars. And of course I think the pinnacle of his career hosting this show once well we heard he just got over a bad cold. We thought it'd be time to invite him back Tom. Hanks welcome back to wait. Wait it's good to be back the source of the finest reviews of my career. I've actually this is the first time you've been on the show since you did that about three years ago and did in fact people reach out to you because they reach out to me and they basically said. Peter. When are you leaving again? We all have those things in our checkered careers. Don't go on Netflix. And look for bonfire of the vanities. I have to ask on behalf of A. I think concerned globe. How are you feeling Tom? Hanks We are just fine dandy. We had all of the flu. Like symptoms my wife. Reader was a little worse off than me. She had a very high temperature and We were isolated so that we would not give it to any one else right. Now that you've had aren't you supposedly like immune your superheroes you can walk amongst us and be immune or is that just not a lot of the question is what now you know. What do we do now? Is there something we can do? In fact we just found out that we do carry the antibodies. Wait so can we harvest your body? Can we harvest your list? Have you been approached? We not only been approach. We have said Do you want our blood. Can WE GIVE PLASMA? And in fact we will be giving it now to the places hope to work on what? I would like to call the hank scene. Yeah could be better ending to this. International ATROPHY CURE TURNS OUT TO BE. The blood of. Tom Has always thought it would do. Some good somehow not get copyright are not going to the patent office you thought he was Jimmy Stewart he's also Jonas. Tom Let let me ask you the obvious. Hollywood question. If there is a sequel. Would you consider being in Cova Twenty s? I would I would answer all the questions left on answered by covert nineteen by the way. How many franchises James Bond thing a fast and the furious and the Coleridge series and I say for all of America can. They're just be one of these. We love you Tom. I do not want to see the second one. You hosted Saturday night live. You sort of ushered that. Show back into production in the middle of all. This and a question arose that I have seen squeezing through social media and can pose it to you now Tom. Hanks was that your real kitchen. No that was my abandoned office. That is ten minutes away from my home. Can I ask you? What do you have against your own kitchen that you went into the kitchen? What you're seeing down there truly is my taste in decoration. Not My wife's tastes. Yes it is me. Baby that is that is my big masculine man cave and you should have been able to tell by the fabulous one button only cappuccino espresso maker. That was backed bell over my left. Hand Dark Mahogany Cabinets. Right sort of a red. That is my crib and I am. I am proud of it. What was funny was so many people like that is no way that is like an alien movie stars kitchen so could you for the just for the benefit of those people lie to America. But what's your real kitchen is like my real kitchen. I assume it looks like the dining hall and hog. Were now Racha twohey kitchen with all those. Have you seen Downton Abbey? Those people that worked downstairs making bread and stuff like that PAT. I'm not sure what their names are. They've been working for us but they are really busy down there and if I had done. Snl over their shoulders. You wouldn't have had the same impact. What is your life like during lockdown? Are you doing the same as the rest of us? Just in your house reading books spending your time taking zoom. I find something something different is happening about. Every twenty minutes I've done the Marie Condo wising of much of my life. I must say I found this microphone. That's one thing I did not realize I had this microphone some. It was in the original box so I pulled it up but I gotTa say if I win one hand of Solitaire. I immediately try to see tune in a row so I'm busy. I am very busy. Yeah well Tom Hanks. It is such a pleasure to talk to you every single time. We get to do it but there are rules so this time we've asked you here to play a game. We're calling it's a terrible day in the neighborhood your most recent film to come out. It was a beautiful day in the neighborhood. You played Mr Rogers. The nicest neighbor ever so. We thought we'd ask you about some of the worst neighbors ever answered correctly and you will win a prize for one of our listeners. The Voice of anyone. They may choose in their voicemail. Actually hoping to prize would be they get to substitute host way to tell me once again just because you won..
