Hey there, dorks. In this week’s podcast, we talk about Sunday night’s Golden Globe nominations. “La La Land” won all the awards, but Meryl Streep won the night. We’re going to talk about our favorite and least favorite moments of the show, and share how the winners affect our Oscar picks, because we take our Oscar predictions VERY SERIOUSLY.
Then Smith talks about the ridiculous exercise of giving awards to artistic achievements as though they were trophies at the end of a baseball season. You can’t score La La Land or Manchester by the Sea like box scores. He’s got some interesting ideas on how to improve award shows. We also chat about the recent Writers Guild nominations.
All of that, plus our favorite headlines of the week.
