Devin and I started recording an episode just after finishing the 2018 Oscars. This is not that episode, but it’s close enough.
Having finally recovered from last year’s Best Picture snafu, Devin and I are back with our best guesses for this year’s Oscar winners. Here are our respective ballots, compiled separately.
(Devin and I discussed several of this year’s nominated films on our podcast. Do us a favor and check out our thoughts on Get Out; Baby Driver and Dunkirk; Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri; Lady Bird; Molly’s Game and Call Me By Your Name; and Star Wars: The Last Jedi and The Post. Subscribe to The M&M Report on iTunes and Spotify, and check your feeds Monday morning for our fifth annual post-Oscars recap, to be recorded just minutes after the telecast ends.)
On our latest episode, Devin and I try very hard not to spoil The Good Place (0:00-4:50)…and then they just give up and spoil it, because life’s too short (4:50-End).
After you listen, check out TV critic Alison Herman’s interview about the show with her philosopher father.
West Coast correspondent Erin Vail returns to nerd out with me and Devin over Star Wars: The Last Jedi (0:00-23:20). Then they poke gentle fun at The Post for being, well, not unsubtle (23:20-38:50). Before she leaves, Erin drops a few pop culture recommendations of her own (38:50-end).
The title of this post is pretty self-explanatory. Thanks in advance for indulging me.
