Oscars Preview 2017

 Rated R for small amounts of cussin’ (just so you know).

<> on October 19, 2009 in Santa Clarita, California.

The Oscars are on February 26th, so here’s a detailed week-ahead glance at the big show. This 51st Next 100 Project podcast is packed with our thoughts about all 9 Best Picture nominees, all 20 acting noms, the 5 directors and even a little about most of the other categories. Dive in. Also, dive into Sparkplug Coffee!

NOTES: Tom Hardy was in Mad Max: Fury Road in addition to The Revenant (both were Best Picture nominees). Also, as you’ll learn next week about the Coming Attractions Trivia, Ryan is incorrect about the number of Larry McMurty’s books that were turned into films. It’s 7, not 8.
