Oscar Podcast #26: Cannes Post-Mortem and Jake Gyllenhaal’s TKO in ‘Southpaw’

In this Cannes post-mortem podcast I’m accompanied by Gold Rush Gang Member Jason Osiason and International Cinephile Society member David Acacia, both of whom attended the 68th Cannes Film Festival last week and we dish about the movies they saw, the jury and the uninspired prize winners.

We also try and figure out if there is any Oscar hope from this year’s slate of Cannes films and although it seems bleak there are a few bright spots.

In what’s the highlight for me (duh) is Jason talking with effusive praise for Jake Gyllenhaal in ‘Southpaw.’ He saw the film as a part of a special screening group at the festival and believes, like Harvey Weinstein, that Gyllenhaal will reap an Oscar nomination for the role.

Be still my beating heart.
