Episode 30: Phantom Thread, Molly's Game, Den Of Thieves, Father Figures
Charlie, Jess, Brent and Chris discuss the week's films, share their favourite Oscar nominations and the most heinous snubs, and ask whether the Razzies are lighthearted fun or a dated hate ceremony?
News ▸ With last week’s announcement of the Oscars nominations and the Oscars themselves a mere 32 days away, there is a veritable pantheon of things to talk about: Netflix has nabbed itself 8 nominations, there have been surprise nominations and even bigger and more shocking snubs. There are campaigns to run and win and hearts to fill and break. So with so much to digest over the next few weeks, let’s take a first bite! ▸ With every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Therefore with the Oscar nominations comes the Razzie nominations, with the ceremony to be held the day before the Oscars. Now in its 38th incarnation, what was once a fun tongue-in-cheek anti-Oscars now seems like a vicious attack on easy targets such as the 'Transformers' franchise, the 'Fifty Shades' films, Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson. So is there still a place in the season for the Razzies, or does the award for worst film awards go to the the Golden Raspberries?
