‘Mrs. Maisel’ and Our Marvelous Awards Season


The Cooler gang reviews The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, and discuss their place within the awards season.

It’s a hodgepodge of awards chatter at the Water Cooler this week, folks. First up, we’re talking about the first wave of film critics awards. What do they mean for this year’s Oscar contenders? Who’s pulling ahead right now? Who’s falling behind? We also sneak in a conversation about one-time presumed front-runner Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. Then, on the TV side of the Cooler, we take a look at Amazon’s new series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Does it follow through on the promise of the acclaimed pilot? We use Mrs. Maisel as a jumping off point to talk about next week’s Golden Globe nominations. Plus, at the midway point of the Emmy season, who leads so far before Spring 2018’s television onslaught.

We close our podcast, as always, with the Flash Forward to the television we’re most anticipating in the upcoming week.
