This week, the Cooler Gang cover their 2018 Limited Series Emmy predictions. Plus, it’s Oscar season, which means it’s time for our latest Fantasy Oscar Pool.
With the 2018 Creative Arts Emmy Awards happening this weekend, we’re starting out final countdown into the 70th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards. On today’s podcast, we’re covering our 2018 Limited Series Emmy predictions. Will The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story – Ryan Murphy’s Gianni Versace/Andrew Cunanan limited series – dominate? Or will its relatively muted reaction (in comparison to the O.J. Simpson season) make room for some surprise wins? Who will win, who would we personally choose, and who are the spoilers?
But first, as you may have noticed, Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper opened the podcast with their theme for the upcoming A Star Is Born, which premiered last week at the Venice Film Festival. Oscar season has kicked off in full force, so it’s time for the 2nd Annual Water Cooler Podcast Fantasy Oscar pool. Joey, Megan, and Clarence each pick Oscar teams as last year. This year, we’re tossing in the films themselves. In addition to five actors and five actresses, we’re selecting three films for our Oscar teams. We’ll tally scores based on festival awards, opening weekend reviews, and magazine covers until critics awards start rolling out. Then, a new change to the rules kicks in, we cover that in our Fantasy Oscar segment.
We close our podcast, as always, with the Flash Forward to the media we’re most anticipating in the upcoming week.
