Episode 117: The Water Cooler Gang makes our 2017 Oscar predictions in all categories, reviews HBO’s Big Little Lies, and talks Beyonce at the Grammys.
This week at the Water Cooler, we tackle some of this week’s biggest entertainment events. First up, we give our full-on, never-fail, 2017 Oscar predictions in advance of next Sunday’s Oscar ceremony. These foolproof Oscar predictions include a highly controversial prediction coming from Megan that gives Joey heart palpitations. Then, we finally talk at great length about HBO’s Emmy-worthy limited series Big Little Lies, which premiered last night. We cover what works, what works brilliantly, and what Emmy nominations we think the series will merit.
But before we gush, we talk about last weekend’s Grammys, the various Adele / Beyonce controversies, and what the ceremony ultimately says about our culture in our TV Tidbits segment. Megan also introduces HBO’s latest comedy Crashing (starring Pete Holmes), and Clarence previews tonight’s premiere of Bates Motel Season 5.
Finally, we close with the Flash Forward to the television we’re most anticipating in the upcoming week.
