We’re playing catch-up at the Water Cooler this week. Now that we’re all back and healthy, both physically and mentally, we’re looking at some recent film, television, and awards news we’ve yet to discuss. First, the DGA (both film and TV) and Critics Choice announced this week. On the TV side, what shows popped up at this guild award that could possibly give us a sneak peak at the 2018 Emmy nominations? Then, on the film side, how do the awards shape the Oscar race? Furthermore, how do these recent awards shape our Fantasy Oscar pool?
Then, we’re opening up the floor to a series of films and TV series we’re still finding. What’s going on with The X-Files and does anyone really care? James Franco and Aziz Ansari are the latest personalities stricken with the dreaded sexual misconduct claims. How will these claims affect their careers, and will they hurt Franco’s chances at an Oscar nomination? Finally, we catch up on some big holiday films including Call Me By Your Name and The Greatest Showman. We also preview two hotly anticipated television series: The Handmaid’s Tale Season 2 and The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story.
We close our podcast, as always, with the Flash Forward to the television we’re most anticipating in the upcoming week.
Be sure to get ready for Our Favorite Movies Volume 3, which kicks off in two weeks with Nashville.
