"Big performances and big personalities tend to have the edge. It so happens that all the acting categories this year have one or both of them. In supporting actress specifically, Janney has a bigger performance and a bigger real life personality." - Joseph

"Are you all OK with the Del Toro sweep? He would be my 4th choice." - Peggy Sue

"Poor Timothée!😔 Al least he has a chance to win the Spirit Award 🙏🏻 Or is Kaluuya going to upset?!" -Amirfarhang

Lost Podcast / Last Jedi

Surprise! The following podcast was lost after a recent move but has been recovered. This podcast was recorded over the Christmas break but the SAG part at least is hyper relevant to this weekend with the Screen Actors Guild Awards hitting tomorrow. 

Nathaniel welcomes a particularly grouchy Nick Davis and new guest Teo Bugbee who had just pulled an all nighter to see Star Wars The Last Jedi. We discuss what the hell Laura Dern and Benicio del Toro are doing in it before moving on to SAG's "Outstanding Ensemble" nominees (and other ensemble films we like, too). 

You can listen to the podcast here at the bottom of the post or download from iTunesContinue the conversations in the comments, won't you?

Your podcasts are the best and one of the best ways to get through the dark winter months of January and February.

I knew Laura Dern wasn't a traitor once I saw she was wearing an actual halo. What an interesting costume choice.

I'd be thrilled if Get Out. Lady Bird, or Big Sick won (but especially the first two). Also super great: Beatriz at Dinner, The Salesman, and It.

Glad you guys are back again!

Teo is awesome. More Teo, please!

I don't really understand why people consider the casino planet scene a waste of time. It's the place where the film gets interestingly political about the arms merchants who prop up the First Order. It gives us John Boyega at his most charmingly comedic. It lets Kelly Marie Tran shine with more good stuff to do. Benecio gets to be a degenerate weirdo. And it plants the seed of those future-Jedi kids. All in all I prefer that subplot to a lot of the other bloated parts of the movie.

I'm glad that Nick suggested The Meyerowitz Stories for Ensemble. I agree that in that way it's one of the year's best films.
