Part 1 of 2
For this megamix conversation -- still shorter than most of the Best Picture Hopefuls! -- which is the last before the Oscar Nominations we ignored the act of "predicting" beyond a couple hazy hunches and dug into Quentin Tarantino's new slavesploitation western (which none of us like as much as the internet does as it so happens). But since this is the Film Experience we do love to meander through movie memories and Oscar digressions, Django Unchained is hardly the only film we visit in this 44 minute podcast. [With Nathaniel, Nick, Katey, and Joe.]
Topics include but are not limited to:
- Last minute Oscar hunches: Eddie Redmayne? Michael Haneke?
- Django Unchained
- Ann Dowd's self-funded Oscar campaign for Compliance
- Nathaniel's special Christmas Gift
- 1947 & 1991 Oscar Winner Flashbacks: Loretta Young and Mercedes Ruehl, anyone?
- Middle Of Nowhere's transfixing Emayatzy Corinealdi
- The power and powerlessness of physical beauty
- Podcast Bingo
