Well hey there, boys and girls! Welcome back to another dandy episode of Best Movie Ever! Since we weren’t sure when we’d actually get this baby up, Sean and I thought we’d play it safe by running down our picks and predictions for the Oscars this year. So who cares if the big event is still two weeks away? Time to hit play and get those juices flowing, yo! Enjoy!
[START – 2:26]
Introductions for all you first-time listeners.
[2:26 – 10:38] SEGMENT I: WHATCHA’ WATCHIN’?
Aiden wasn’t crazy about Zero Dark Thirty, something to do with dog collars, but Sean dug it quite a bit.
[10:38 – 17:58]
Sean saw The Last Stand (even reviewed it, too), and Aiden was surprisingly envious of him. Chalk it up to a Kim Ji-woon fetish.
[17:58 – 21: 56] SEGMENT II: THE OSCARS
We start things off with the Original Screenplay nominees.
[21:56 – 26:35]
The next natural stop: the Adapted Screenplay noms.
[26:35 – 33:16]
Then, onto the Supporting Actors, a list that’s seriously lacking in the Leo DiCaprio department.
[33:16 – 35:36]
We take all of two minutes to agree that Anne Hathaway’s got Supporting Actress in the bag.
[35:36 – 39:29]
Aiden saw four of the five Animated Films nominated this year, so he jumps at the opportunity to shit all over Brave (even though it’ll probably win).
[39:29 – 44:36]
Though DDL’s got a lock on Best Actor this year, we still take a moment to daydream about an Oscars where Joaquin wins an upset for the ages.
[44:36 – 49:44]
Not really sure who’s winning Best Actress this year (even though Emmanuelle Riva totally deserves it).
[49:44 – 54:45]
Folks, let’s just say Sean’s not too happy about Mihai Malaimare, Jr. getting snubbed for Best Cinematography this year.
Not really sure who’s going to win Best Director either, but Sean’s not happy about Paul Thomas Anderson’s absence.
[59:26 – 1:05:09]
And lastly, our picks and predictions for the Best Picture noms.
[1:05:09 – 1:08:05] SEGMENT III: MOST ANTICIPATED MOVIE OF 2013
Aiden’s pretty amped for whatever the hell Alfonso Cuaron is doing with Gravity.
Still reeling off the awesomeness that was District 9, Sean’s looking forward to Elysium.
[1:11:22 – END]
And then we say goodbye.
Thanks as always for listening, gang, and a big thanks as usual to Atheist for the fly beats off his diggety-dope debut album Thanks for the Burgers (download that ish, son). So until next time, homeys, keep on keepin’ on.
