The Cooler Gang looks at Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga’s melodramatic love fest, A Star Is Born. Plus, we take an obscenely early look at the 2019 Limited Series Emmy race.
This weekend, one movie united the Cooler Gang. Nay, the world. That film was A Star Is Born. Starring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga, the film grossed $42 million, received an A Cinemascore grade, and had dozens of Oscar watchers declaring it the front runner to win. We’ve all seen the film, so we talk about our reactions to it. Then, is it really the Oscar front runner? Do we think it can indeed win Best Picture? We talk about that and a few other films we’ve recently seen.
Then, we start our ridiculously early dive into the upcoming Emmy season, starting with the Limited Series races. Without a significant Ryan Murphy entry on the horizon (wherefore art thou American Crime Story: Katrina?), what limited series stands the best shot at dominating the 2019 race? We run through the guaranteed, possible, and long shot nominations as we start populating the Emmy Tracker.
We close our podcast, as always, with the Flash Forward to the media we’re most anticipating in the upcoming week.
And make sure you listen all the way to the end for Clarence’s Volume 6 selection of the Our Favorite Movies series. Hmm… It’s October! Hmm… It’s almost Halloween! Does that mean a scary movie is in the works? Maybe… You’ll have to listen and find out!
