Oscar Nominations: The Good, the Bad, and the Totally Unexpected

68
0

From the moment this year’s Oscar nominations were announced Tuesday morning, the conversation spread in all kinds of directions. How much should we read into Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, the presumed front-runner, not receiving a best-director nomination? With 13 total nominations, is The Shape of Water the front-runner now? Can we all breathe a sigh of relief that Christopher Nolan finally got a best-director nomination? And how on earth did Christopher Plummer pull this off?

There are still many weeks to go until Oscar night, which means this conversation will continue for a while—and on this week’s Little Gold Men podcast,Mike Hogan, Richard Lawson, Joanna Robinson, and Katey Rich get things started, poring over the many snubs and surprises and debating where the race will go from here.

Take a listen to this week‘s show above, and find the show on Apple Podcasts, where you can rate it and leave a review.
