“The only true currency in this bankrupt world is what you share with someone when you’re uncool,“ and today, the Water Cooler Podcast is decidedly uncool. Clarence ushers in 2019’s Our Favorite Movies series with his Volume 7 entry. Cameron Crowe’s 2000 film Almost Famous won a well deserved Oscar for Original Screenplay and received three other nominations including Editing and two supporting actress bids for Frances McDormand and Kate Hudson. Clarence dives into what he loves about Crowe’s ode to rock music and those who love it. Plus, if this film were released today, how would the preferential ballot treat it? Plus, we make a Very Special Announcement about next month’s Our Favorite Movies entry.
But first, Joey takes us through his reaction to FOX’s Rent: (Almost) Live! and previews its Emmy chances. Also, Megan talks about her upcoming trip to the SCAD aTVFest, a yearly television festival sponsored by the Savannah College of Art and Design. Finally, we dish on the recent SAG Award winners and preview potential Oscar and Emmy wins for the recipients.
We close our podcast, as always, with the Flash Forward to the media we’re most anticipating in the upcoming week.
