Oscars Preview 2022

Rated R, but that’s for just a little smattering of foul utterances.

Oscars 2022

The 94th Academy Awards are only days away and for the first time in many years, we weren’t big fans of a lot of the nominees. For that matter, we weren’t huge fans of most of the 2021 movies in general. Judging by what many respected critics are saying, the Ellises are the outliers. Well, groupthink is dull anyway, right? In any event, we’ll be tweeting live on the big night (@moviefiend51 and @bevellisellis) as Amy Schumer, Wanda Sykes and Regina Hall host the most-controversial Oscars in years, mostly because of ABC’s baffling edict to cut a slew of the awards from the live broadcast to speed up the show. As for what you’re in for in the 434th Ellises’ Analysis, we discussed all the candidates for Best Picture, Best Directing, the 2 writing categories and of course all 4 acting categories. By the way, if you’re looking to catch up on the 2021 flicks you haven’t yet seen, most of the major candidates are now available on one streaming service or another. Anyway, give this hour’s worth of our nay-saying a listen, but also look for our Oscars Post-View on the 28th. We’ll probably say more nay.
Sparkplug Coffee is our longtime sponsor. They haven’t won any expensive gold statues, which is probably ABC’s fault too. But they WILL reward our listeners with a one-time 20% discount by using our promo code (“top100project”) at check-out.
