Episode 31: Breaking Down the 2019 Oscar Nominations

In Episode 31, we talk about the (potentially unnecessary) musical version of the film Magic Mike, Amazon’s first foray into stand-up comedy (with comedian Jim Gaffigan) and discuss the ramifications of NO candy conversation hearts in 2019.

In the Marquee Topic, we break down the 2019 Oscar Nominations and wax poetic about pleasant surprises (Sam Elliot! Black Panther!), the most egregious snubs (no Bradley Cooper for Best Director?!?!) and our first impressions on which of the eight nominees will take home the prize for Best Picture.

PLUS, in our teasers, Maureen recommends a book she hasn’t yet read and Josh recommends a new cast recording of recent Off-Broadway revival.
