This week, Joel Murphy and Lars Periwinkle share their thoughts on the 92nd annual Academy Awards, which were held this past Sunday. After voicing their disappointment over underwhelming slate of nominees on a recent show (including snubs for things like The Farewell, Knives Out, Midsommar, female directors in general and all of the actors in Parasite), they were pleasantly surprised to discover the Academy was shamed into actually picking the best nominees this year. Joel also shares his thoughts on all nine Best Picture nominees, which he and Molly recently finished watching.
This week’s music:
Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
End – “Trouble in Hollywood! (feat. CupcakKe)” by Mise Darling

Hear their thoughts on all eight films (plus, a few tangents about Joel’s Adam Sandler spec script and Chris Hemsworth being cast as Hulk Hogan).
How do Joel and Molly rank the Best Picture nominees? What utterly bizarre thing does Lady Gaga’s character do in a bathroom in A Star is Born? Whatcha gonna do, brother, when Christ Hemsworth’s 24-inch pythons run wild on you? The answers to these questions and more are on this week’s show.
