The Oscar nominations have been announced, and ugh… this year. This week on The B-Movies Podcast, William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold disseminate the most boring Oscar nominations in a long time, and wonder how why so many white people felt the need to reward each other at the expense of others at the Academy Awards. And how the hell did Meryl Streep get nominated for the umpteenth time? Do the online ballots just autocomplete her name?
(But congratulations to recent guest star Dan Gilroy for his Oscar nomination for Best Original Screenplay! Well, deserved, Mr. Gilroy. You can still listen to his episode, featuring an in-depth interview about Nightcrawler.)
Also on this week’s B-Movies Podcast, Bibbs and Witney review Blackhat, Paddington and The Wedding Ringer. Witney doesn’t seem to like anything this week. Is he right about everything or is Bibbs just not being cynical for once?
Who went on a blood quest to taxidermy this week? You’ll find out on The B-Movies Podcast #205: Did You Mean Meryl Streep?
