We reveal the results of Circuit Madness, the quest to find the “Best” Best Picture winner of all-time. Did your favorite move forward? Listen in to see.
We give a lowdown of the upcoming Tribeca Film Festival where Richard Linklater’s Before Midnight will be playing along Prince Avalanche and the upcoming documentary about Oscar-nominee Michael Haneke called Michael H – Profession: Director.
We play “Give Them an Oscar” and with subjects like Sam Rockwell and Jessica Alba, the choices are very different.
A big focus of this podcast is placed on our possible Original Screenplay contenders and with heavy hitters like Woody Allen, Joel Coen and Ethan Coen, and Jim Jarmusch all making a bid this year, we could have a strong lineup coming down the line. John Carney has an upcoming film with Keira Knightley titled Can a Song Save Your Life? and some think I might be overestimating its potential. There are even some on staff that believe Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity may be a bit “too sci-fi” for the Academy’s liking. I disagree. Listen to see if you do too.
We also introduce a new game that gives you the power of Harvey Weinstein.
