Best Actress - Halle Berry vs Renee Zellweger

February 29, 2020

The 74th Oscars. History was made when Halle Berry became the African American woman to win Best Actress for her role Monster's Ball. Was this the role that should have made history, though? Wendy and Shay take a look at the film, along with fellow nominee Renee Zellweger's Bridget Jones' Diary, and discuss who the real loser was.

WARNING: The sound on this episode is garbage. I tried to fix it the best I could, but it doesn't sound good. I liked our conversation way to much to just trash the episode. Listen with caution!

On this week's episode, Shay and Wendy are joined by the fabulous Ariel Italic from Nobodies Watching Wrestling! She joins us to discuss how the hell Julia Roberts won an Oscar for Erin Brockovich, when Ellen Burstyn was RIGHT THERE doing the job in Requiem for a Dream.

Who is to blame for this upset?  We drank a lot of wine and tried to figure it out.

THE LOSERS ARE BACK!

After months aways, Shay and Wendy are back and angrier than ever! What better way to burst back onto the scene than recapping the 2020 Oscar nominees?

We're confused. We're angry. We have A LOT to say.

We've got another two-parter episode for you!

That's right, we are going back to 1979 and the 51st Academy Awards to look at EVERY Best Picture that was nominated that year. 

In this first part, Shay and Wendy pit the winner, The Deer Hunter, against two of the four losing films of that year.  Were Coming Home and Midnight Express better than The Deer Hunter?  Should they have won?

On this episode, we go back to 1972 with the 44th Academy Awards!

Let's take a deeper look at the Best Original Screenplay category and how The Hospital won over Klute.  Never heard of The Hospital? Neither had we!  How did this win over Klute? One of the great mysteries of life, I guess.

Back in 1994, at the 67th Academy Awards, an 11yr old Anna Paquin faced off with her co-star, Holly Hunter, in the Best Supporting Actress category. Holly Hunter was nominated for The Firm, and Anna Paquin for The Piano.

Shay and Wendy take a look at the two roles, submitted by listener Spencer, and see who deserves the win. (hint - it was Paquin)

It's Gene Kelly's butt vs. Montgomery Clift's face on this week's episode!

Wait....that's not what we sat down to discuss.
My bad, it's actually BEST EDITING!  That's right, we're back to take a look at 24th Oscars, which pitted A Place in the Sun vs. An American in Paris in a variety of categories. Yes, we talk about editing, but we also scream about Gene Kelly a lot.

Best Actor - Spencer Tracy vs. James Cagney

Best Actor - Spencer Tracy vs. James Cagney

September 15, 2019

This week's episode is short but sweet!

Shay and Wendy take a look back on the 11th Academy Awards and the Best Actor category!  Unfortunately, Wendy found Spencer Tracy and Boys Town to be an absolute snooze fest, and Shay couldn't find anything special about James Cagney in Angels with Dirty Faces.  

We may have struggled to find something to even talk about with both these films, but we still had fun talking about it!

Oof.
