On the agenda:

  • Celebrating Clayton Davis’ 9-year wedding anniversary, Joey went out to Asbury Park, NJ to see Bruce Springsteen, and Karen had “Pancakes with the Pearsons” and the “This Is Us” cast.
  • Talking about the big announcements for the New York Film Festival that include Martin Scorsese’s “The Irishman” (and how the visual effects can be interpreted from general audiences and awards voters), Noah Baumbach’s “Marriage Story” (hoping to perhaps be another 4 acting nominee player), and Edward Norton’s “Motherless Brooklyn” (one that’s been the hopper for a while and has big expectations).
  • Fantastic Fest from Austin, TX announced their opener of Taika Waititi’s “Jojo Rabbit,” which is gaining excitement and buzz from every direction.
  • We have a new AMPAS President in the form of David Rubin.  What are our thoughts on the new leadership?
  • Is Joaquin Phoenix’s work in “Joker” a viable contender on the awards circuit this year in Best Actor, based on tributes and early buzz?
  • If the Oscars were held today, what film would win Best Picture?  What contender(s) from the first half of the year and summer stand a decent chance at awards attention?
