Podcast

We kick off the podcast with a look back at the weekend’s big guild awards – the Producers Guild Awards and the Screen Actors Guild Awards. What do the winners tell us about the 2024 Emmy race? Then, we launch into our first analytical look at the 2024 Emmy season, starting with the Limited Series categories. What that has premiered so far will be remembered when Emmy voting begins in June? And what upcoming Limited Series will we need to look out for as we evolve our predictions?

As always we close with the flash forward to the media we’re most anticipating in the upcoming week.

Megan rejoins the Water Cooler to give us an update on her recent trip to the SCAD TV Fest. Then, we revisit this weekend’s best Super Bowl commercials and the buzzy movie trailers that debuted during the game. Finally, Megan leads a conversation about Peacock’s Ted, a prequel (limited?) series to the 2012 film of the same name from Seth MacFarlane.

We’re talking cats and swans this week at the Water Cooler but sadly without Megan. First up, Joey and Clarence briefly discuss the Grammys ceremony and the online aftermath where the claws were most definitely out. Then, we take a look at Matthew Vaughn’s latest film Argylle, featuring a bevy of stars including Bryce Dallas Howard, Sam Rockwell, Henry Cavill, Dua Lipa, Ariana DeBose, Catherine O’Hara, Bryan Cranston, and more. But do all the famous faces engaged in this trippy international spy thriller make for a fun movie?

Finally, we dive in on Feud: Capote vs. the Swans, the latest in the limited series dedicated to famous fights in pop culture. This installment focuses on Truman Capote (Tom Hollander) as he lands on the wrong side of New York high society wives (the titular swans) played by Naomi Watts, Diane Lane, Calista Flockhart, Chloë Sevigny, Demi Moore, and Molly Ringwald.

Cue the melancholy Vince Guaraldi and Lee Mendelson-penned song “Christmas Time Is Here” from A Charlie Brown Christmas because it’s almost here. Whether that sends you into shivers of glee or strikes fear in your heart (because you still have shopping to do), it’s almost here. To celebrate, the Water Cooler Podcast team gathers ’round their laptops to reveal their favorite holiday films. That includes some unexpected films they watch during the holiday season that wouldn’t traditionally be considered part of the holiday film canon!

We’re also sharing virtual Christmas gifts across the cooler.

The Golden Globes are back, baby! Not only have actors embraced their nominations with public statements and appreciation, but the Golden Globes returned with some very Globesy nominations (we see you, The Diplomat). But they also returned to make history within their own nomination world. HBO’s Succession received a record-breaking nine nominations, and Netflix’s The Crown became the first drama television series to be nominated for all of its seasons. So naturally, there’s a lot to talk about, and we break it all down for you.

We’re heading toward the end of 2023, which naturally means it’s almost time to start making year-end lists! As we cultivate our favorite films of 2023, we’re catching up to one major year-end release, J.A. Bayona’s Society of the Snow. Retelling the harrowing story of the 1972 Andes mountain plane crash, Bayona’s film tells the story from a more authentic perspective with Uruguayan and Argentine actors making up the cast. Does the story merit another look after the early 1990s version (Alive)?

Megan also catches up to Apple and Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon, so we can finally dive deeply into the film and its future awards prospects.

Two huge awards-buzzed films will be released in the month of December, and we’ve seen them both! Todd Haynes’ May December stars Natalie Portman and Julianne Moore in a camp drama that explores the aftermath of an illicit love affair between an adult woman (Moore) and a teenage boy, played as an adult by Charles Melton. Then, Bradley Cooper’s Maestro looks at the decades-long relationship between the great Leonard Bernstein (Cooper) and his wife Felicia Montealegre (Carey Mulligan). We review both films and explore their themes and uniformly strong performances.

As always we close with the flash forward to the media we’re most anticipating in the upcoming week.
