Episode 72 – Discussing The 2012 Oscar Nominations Part 2

On this week’s episode we’re digging back into our Oscar nomination discussion, covering the acting categories, Best Director and Best Picture. We’ve got all the films covered in this episode.

We start out with What Have You Seen Lately and Jason is warning people off of a romantic comedy, and Andy is boosting an early film from the team behind The Artist.

We then get into our Oscar talk, and dig right into the Best Picture nominees that we haven’t previously covered, including The Artist, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, The Help, and War Horse.

It’s been a great year for movies and we hope you enjoy our discussion.
