On the agenda:

  • Karen Peterson is back and meaner than ever! (but we love her still)
  • From a question from one of our readers, we’re discussing our picks for actors/actresses/filmmakers who are long shots for future Academy Award love but are deserving, nonetheless.
  • We share our reactions to the weekend’s most notable new release, “Yesterday.” Did Danny Boyle and Richard Curtis make good use of their high concept? Could Himesh Patel be a future Golden Globe nominee?
  • The “Yesterday” chatter leads into a look at potential Golden Globe nominees in the category of Best Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical.
  • Toy Story 4” as the leader of the pack in Best Animated Feature. What else could challenge it?
  • Clayton Davis and Joey Magidson have seen “Spider-Man: Far From Home” and have a spoiler-free discussion about the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe offering. Then, where could the MCU go from here? Specifically, a rumored Phase Four lineup is discussed.
  • Some Emmy chatter: Will HBO suffer from putting all their eggs in the “Game of Thrones” basket? How effective was Netflix’s FYSee campaign?
  • Stranger Things” unleashes its third season on July 4 and Karen attended the premiere. What did she think?  Is it the best season yet?
  • We wrap up with our thoughts on the first two Democratic debates that aired on MSNBC.
