Review: Crazy Rich Asians

"I loved it! Simple, but by no means dumb. Light, but with enough emotional beats and such attention to character detail to keep it from being fluff." - Val 

"If Michelle Yeoh actually gets an Oscar nomination for this, I'll probably cry. (Tears of joy, of course.)" -Cash"

Nathaniel welcomes Bobby Rivers, Lena Houst, Denise Grayson, Dan Callahan and Mark Blankenship to discuss the Supporting Actress nominees of 1970 and their hit films. In part one we talk the mega-hit disaster epic Airport and Robert Altman's war comedy MASH. They were both so popular they inspired franchises, one with sequels, the other with a long-running TV series.
