Oscar Nominations Cold Read Live Chat Video and Movies Discussion

Did something a little different this year. Generally, I would normally list out the nominations and think through the movies that were the best movies of the year, and the ones that I’d love to see win, and who I thought had the best chances for the year. But this year? I’m doing it a little bit differently. I thought I’d do a video chatting about the various movies that were nominated, and that I’d open the list cold… not having read it before hand… just a freewheeling discussion of the various movies on the list.

Maybe you’ll find a few movies that will be worth your time to watch as I talk through the various movies that come up on the list. I regularly (or more regularly) do this sort of thing over on Patreon, if you want to join us over there and get more of this kind of deeper dive into these movies, you can do that right here!

Alright – here we go, my cold read of the Oscars nominations list… (sorry about the noise outside my door…)
