Podcast: Lincoln, Pitch Perfect, and the Supporting Actress Oscar

Weeeeee're ba-aaack.

Katey and Joe attended the sneak Lincoln preview at the NYFF and lived to tell the cel-phone free tale. Nick forces yours truly, Nathaniel, into an aca-awkward confession and the only movie that everyone has seen is Pitch Perfect which is clearly 100% appropriate for an Oscar-focused podcast. Certain to sweep!

Topics include but are not limited to:

  • Anna Kendrick being so over it in Pitch Perfect.
  • Sally Field being over the top of it in Lincoln.
  • Helen Hunt being on top of it (John Hawkes) in The Sessions.
  • Nicole Kidman killing it in The Paperboy.
  • Supporting Actress doubling up on it.
  • Elle Fanning giggling through it for Ginger & Rosa
  • Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Molly Ringwald (???) and More!

You can download the podcast on iTunes or listen to it right here. The more the merrier in this conversation so join in in the comments.

I think you should reexamine your Best Supporting Actress category index and make space for Kidman, Nathaniel. :)

Nathaniel, I heard in your podcast that you are willing to lead a supporting actress campaign for NICOLE KIDMAN in THE PAPERBOY. Please, please do it. She's a very underrated and she needs the Oscar nod to complete her career makeover, because her future projects look very promising.

Nathaniel, I heard in your podcast that you are willing to lead a supporting actress campaign for NICOLE KIDMAN in THE PAPERBOY. Please, please do it. Nicole's a very underrated actress and the prospective Oscar nod will finally complete her career makeover.

October 14, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJosh

No, but Nathaniel, what do you think of Nicole Kidman's supporting actress chances?

October 15, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterAlice

For Nick! The thing that converted me to Anna Kendrick was Rocket Science, a very nice, underseen indie about a boy who stutters. Good film, and it's the best she's been in a film.

Hi nat,are you saying then that sally field is not v good in lincoln and will she be nominated whether shes good or not.

October 15, 2012 | Unregistered Commentermark

Just give Sally Field's spot to someone more deserving (i.e. Nicole Kidman)

October 15, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterPercy

One of the most fun podcasts you guys have done! Made my morning.

October 15, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJames T

Oh, and abour Elle Fanning: I haven't seen the movie but I think she's just talented enough to transform herself in what the movie needs her to be. I saw her in Letterman (she was, like 12, 13) and she was hahalala but also pretty smart and mature.

October 15, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJames T

You guys are the funnest people on the internet!

Molly Ringwald's anecdote is priceless! She was so big for so little time. I was there too.

October 15, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterPeggy Sue

"That's not fair, Sophie Okonedo is doing really well". Brilliant.

October 15, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterThe Jack

mark - i haven't seen LINCOLN yet but Joe & katey, as heard here, were not impressed with her but both think she'll be nominated anyway.

the jack -- i know. Nick is the funniest

alice - LOL

josh -- I shall do my best!

Nicole has been creating headlines since May and she is getting arguably the strongest reviews of her career and winning over some of her detractors with her perfromance. Hopefully It will start with the Globes and snowball into an academy award nomination.

October 15, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterLittle MY

Glad you left Fields out of the top 5 ... she is such a one-note actress.

Kidman was not good in The Paperboy... her accent was all over the place and it was over acting at the worst level.

October 15, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterrick

What's this? An Oscar podcast full of people who enjoy discussing them? Doth my ears deceive me?

Always happy for a new episode!

Rick: you again!! whose fan are you again? Paris Hilton? Jennifer Anniston?

He thinks Streep deserves immunity from criticism by us mere mortals. I'm for the 99% who aren't Streep. They deserve the opportunities, some of the public's affection, and certainly industry respect.

Nathan, if you see The Master on DVD for awards consideration first you're going to hate yourself. See it projected—digitally or film, doesn't matter, see it theatrically while it's available in your area. I'm not promising that you'll like it more seeing it first in a theater, but, your appreciation of its ambition can only be realized with Greenwood's score in a surround system and the added tension from Phoenix's performance is heightened when sitting in an auditorium—see alone, if you have to.

Okay, straight out, if the pro-Streep/no-Streep insanity that overtook these Comment sections last year makes a return appearance, I am totally punching out till March. Let's just not even go there, or pretend like we're going there, not even comically or by allusion. That shit got bleak last year. So let's just kill it with a skillet. This is the website that actually keeps Oscar season fun and not-crazy, remember? That's why we chuckle and guffaw all through the podcasts. Hilarity, hilarity! Hope and change! Cheerful disagreement! Don't hate, prognosticate! If you're about to needle somebody for either their insufficient or their excessive Streeplove, just think about a baby panda, or world peace, or hit the Donate button on Nathaniel's sidebar. Just get through the moment and take it one day at a time.

Oh, look, my afternoon was made because there's a new TFE podcast. Funny, that. ;)

Thank you soooooooo much, of course.

October 15, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMark The First

Nick -- Thank you. So agree. Please let not Streepisms ruin this Oscar year!

Mark -- you're welcome :)

October 15, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterNathaniel R

Nathaniel, what'd you think of Grace (the play)? And when do you see The Perks of Being a Wallflower? Hated the first; loved the second.

October 16, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterEvan

"I missed it, I was with Paul Rudd and Michael Shannon"

Haha! That was the best!

October 16, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterBia

Yes please, tell us about the play. Looks very good.
