We’ve had two major critics groups weigh in on this year’s best in film and television. This week on the Water Cooler Podcast, we take a look at last week’s Critics Choice nominees and today’s Golden Globes nominations. Who’s in? Who’s out? What do the nominees say about the frontrunners for Oscar nominations? Do the television nominees give any insight into next year’s Emmy nominations? We gather around the Water Cooler to hash all this out with Jalal Haddad.
In TV Tidbits, we talk about Big Little Lies Season 2 and the controversy over the Producer’s Guild of America recasting it as a drama series. Then, AMC’s The Walking Dead made news for the first time as a long-time central character was revealed to have been bitten by a zombie. We talk about the event and what we think truly lies behind the decision. Finally, Joey primes our awards pump with the latest stats in our on-going Fantasy Oscar contest between Clarence, Joey, and Megan.
We close our podcast, as always, with the Flash Forward to the television we’re most anticipating in the upcoming week.
