Megan, Clarence, and Joey kick off their very first Fantasy Football-inspired Oscar draft. Have a listen to our Fantasy Oscar pool Water Cooler Podcast.
Ready to rumble Oscar style? Have you always rolled your eyes at those men who brag about their Fantasy Football picks? You find it silly to think of grown men losing their minds over someone beating them to a key draft selection? Well, we never thought we’d be those people, but here we are. Here comes the Fantasy Oscar pool.
From a cool idea from Megan, the Water Cooler podcast team takes Fantasy Football and gives it an Oscar tilt. Instead of Aaron Rodgers or Tom Brady (those are actual people…right?), we are deciding between contenders in this season’s upcoming Oscar race. Annette Bening or Sally Hawkins? Michael Shannon or Matt Damon?
We each pick 5 women and 5 men, and it has to be tied to a specific performance. If someone lands on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter or another prominent publication, they get awarded points. If they land certain precursor nominations, they get even more. We will be publishing or announcing the rules and scoring soon. If you want to listen to who we selected, take a listen to this week’s bonus podcast episode. As of right now, we unfortunately can’t open it up to more participants, but we welcome listeners and readers to grab two Oscar-obsessed friends and play along with us! Put your draft picks in the comments section!
