I’m a guy so I agree that ranking things are fun. That whole podcast was a lot of fun so thank you all very much!

Question for the next podcast: now that we have the rules adjustment. How di you think lcampaigning will change for this year? maybe without festivals how can someone win momentum? does netflix have the advantage?


Question for you guys. Who is an actor that you tend to forget that they have never been nominated for an Oscar? For me, it’s Oscar Isaac. He makes my personal ballot 3 years in a row for Inside Llewyn Davis, a Most Violent Year, and Ex Machina, so I tend to forget that the Academy has never actually nominated him.


Hey y’all! Seeing as the SAG Awards were first awarded for 1994, if you could assemble a SAG Ensemble category for any year before 1994 what year would you pick, what 5 movies from that year would you nominate, and who would be your winner?

For instance, mine would probably be 1976: nominate Rocky, Network, Taxi Driver, All the President’s Men, and Marathon Man and give the award to All the President’s Men.
