That’s that, the Oscar nominations for the 92nd Academy Awards are in and Joey Moser from Awardsdaily and I have some words to say about them.
From Joker’s 11 nominations to the dearth of non-white acting nominees to no female director nominees there’s a lot we have to talk about. Is the Academy regressing? Why are there so many ‘dad’ movies in Best Picture this year?
Is it all bad? Definitely not. Some strides were made even as setbacks were like a tidal wave over them.
We try and end on a positive note of our favorite nominations of the morning (Parasite! Honeyland x2! Great short noms!) and include some words of wisdom and advice from a snubbed contender to help right the ship.
This podcast runs 1h 10m with music.
Opening: John Cho and Issa Rae intro to the morning’s Oscar nominations
Closing: “New York City by Day” from the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack of Desperately Seeking Susan by Thomas Newman
