Best in Show: Oscar & BAFTA noms, campaign politics and sexy ghosts
Best in Show: Oscar & BAFTA noms, campaign politics and sexy ghosts
The Oscar nominations are in, as are the BAFTAs, and all is now noisy on the western front as awards season shifts up a gear. Mia, Gemma and Brian look at how the nominees stack up against the Letterboxd community’s favorites, have a rant about snubs, fat-suits and the lack of Black and women directors, and a warm moment for all the tender men. Then we chat with Rotten Tomatoes’ awards editor Jacqueline Coley about what it takes to win an Oscar in campaigning terms, and she reveals Oscar host who ignited her awards season excitement. We also dissect Cate Blanchett’s Critics’ Choice Awards speech, and revisit the 1992 BAFTA original screenplay nominees (Thelma and Louise, The Fisher King, Truly Madly Deeply and Green Card). Credits: Recorded in Los Angeles, Auckland, Boise, and Playa Del Carmen. Edited by Slim. Facts by Jack. Transcript by Sophie. Theme: ‘Hyperlight’ by Letterboxd member Trent Walton (AKA Echo Wolf). Best in Show is a TAPEDECK production. Title courtesy of Christopher Guest.
