On the agenda:

  • Kicking things off with the winners of the Cannes Film Festival and the highlights and contenders that emerged including Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in…Hollywood,” Bong Joon-ho’s “Parasite,” Pedro Almodovar’s “Pain & Glory,” and more.
  • Has Antonio Banderas emerged in the Best Actor race with his win for “Pain & Glory” at Cannes?  Is there a film from his resume thus far that has warranted a nomination?
  • Big releases and screenings last week that included Guy Ritchie’s “Aladdin,” Dexter Fletcher’s “Rocketman,” and Olivia Wilde’s “Booksmart.”  We’re talking about them all (with NO spoilers, so listen freely).  Does “Aladdin” present a good case for awards love in the tech categories?  Does Taron Egerton elevate the likes of Elton John soft-handed biopic?  Can Olivia Wilde go down the same road as Greta Gerwig?
  • We’re talking the LEAD/SUPPORTING debate and giving some examples and choices that have us discussing.  We’re bringing up the likes of “Pulp Fiction,” “The Shawshank Redemption,” and more.
