Week 121 Spotlight: Expert Academy Award analysis
With the 82nd Annual Academy Awards only days away, movie nerds Joel Murphy and Lars share their thoughts on the major categories and attempt to predict the winners. They have no idea what they are talking about, of course, but their incoherent babbling is at least entertaining. For maximum entertainment value, you can listen to this podcast a second time on Monday and hear just how wrong they were.
In addition to the Oscars, our dynamic duo also discuss the latest in Baltimore incompetence, Batman movies and cutting edge time travel technology.
Who will walk home with the statues? How does Lars feel about Mo’Nique? Why is Joel a sell out? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.
Hobo Radio is the official podcast of HoboTrashcan, brought to you by The Podcast Network.
First off, I’d like to state that my confederate money is on both Penelope Cruz and Salma Hayek learning proper English long before Lars could ever hope to.
On a related note, I’d just like to say that it’s clear you’re both descendants of Sherman, which can only mean that you both revel in and resent that burning feeling down south – namely your diseased monkey furniture – and soothe that green monster by setting fires down South that will slowly be returned a hundred-fold by ages of silent reconstruction and backwoods retribution. Or with penicillin. That tends to be quicker. Lord knows you Yankees like things quick – or at least that’s what your sisters and cousins say.
Finally Joel, I’d point out that my infernal contraption does not have “Tyme Masheen” written on the side – it reads “Thyme MaSheen,” which is clearly in reference to Charlie Sheen’s unerring ability to put the hot seasoning to whichever babelicious wonderkind that happens to stumble into his “kitchen.” Ask your moms about that one, they’ll understand. Oh, and tell them I said I’ll be by soon to demonstrate duality on their wormholes, or at least clean out their Hatch, just as they requested.
Peace out, bras.
Unfortunately, I haven’t seen any of the movies up for these awards. I suck at life, I know. But, you’ve done such a good job selling some of them to me that I hang my head in shame that I haven’t seen them yet. I aim to remedy this as soon as they are available on Netflix, if they aren’t already. I won’t be seeing Avatar, though, since I thought the commercials made it look garish and boring.
I’m really quite ignorant about writers and directors and all that stuff, so I tend to not watch award shows. Especially if I’ve been lazy and not kept up with any of the movies being nominated. I trust that your picks are spot on, though, and where your opinions differed I’m sure you’re both right. (Because how could it be any other way?)
Good show, guys! Hearts and stars.
PS – TYMASHEEN!!!
My father has been drinking 10 ounce budweisers for 45 years and swears it tastes better, i believe him. And he’s not a an inbred bastard.
My favorite part is when you pointed out how AWESOME i am for listening to the entire show….and then pointing out that I don’t care about my job…what can i say?
You know they make a cream for that, Lars. heh
