I know, it is more than a full week since the 91st Oscar’s aired, in which Green Book somehow won Best Picture over the far more deserving Roma, but Dakota and Sammy talk about the winners, the losers and how the show went.
Also joining the episode was Stephanie Prior and Scott Murdoch, who recorded their immediate reactions to the ceremony. It was a lot of fun having them both on, and with Scott’s past as a sound engineer, this won’t be the last time you hear from him on Contra Zoom!
Dakota decided to throw out all five Best Actor nominees, and instead create his own list.
- Ethan Hawke for First Reformed
- Lakeith Stanfield for Sorry to Bother You
- John David Washington for BlacKkKlansman
- Joaquin Phoenix from You Were Never Really Here
- Tomasz Kot from Cold War
While I watched it after I recorded, I would also throw Robert Redford from The Old Man & the Gun in the mix too.
Rolling Stone named the Best, Worst and WTF Moments from the Oscars.
Vogue listed the 15 best-dressed attendees at this year’s Oscars.
If you missed it you can see that Dakota predicted 16 correct categories on the last episode, while Sammy only got 8 right. You can revisit that episode HERE.
Something new I’ll be asking people to do is to rate and review Contra Zoom on Podchaser, a site that aims to be the IMDb of podcasts. Please rate 5 stars and if possible leave a short review to help grow this show.
Also if you have never given the show a rating on iTunes, that also helps tremendously. Every bit of exposure helps grow the show.
