Our podcast continues with episode two. We are joined by longtime reader and contributor to AD, Marshall Flores, better known as Statsgasm. We decided to do a little bit of this, a little bit of that – but we do go into Best Picture, Best Actress and Best Actor. The podcast is available on itunes so please subscribe and you’ll get automatic updates.
One thing worth mentioning is what a tragic thing all around this year has been for Nate Parker and the filmmakers on Birth of a Nation. It was an extreme example of how damaging the internet’s hive mind can be. Not to negate the crimes of the past but to say nothing anyone ever does from then on should be regarded is a dangerous road to travel down. The story has haunted me all year, and it’s not something I’ll shake any time soon. I do know that it sets up a precedent I can promise you none of will want in the future.
