Description

Sean and Amanda look at a debate that has been roiling the movie industry for nearly 15 years: Should the Academy Awards more accurately reflect the interests of moviegoers? And if so, should franchise films be regularly competing for Best Picture? The campaign for the new ‘Spider-Man’ movie raises new questions as the theatrical movie business endures a historic period of transition (1:00 ). Then, they discuss Maggie Gyllenhaal’s feature directorial debut, ‘The Lost Daughter,’ now available on Netflix (42:00 ) and power-rank the Best Picture contenders (59:00 ).


Hosts: Sean Fennessey and Amanda Dobbins

Producer: Bobby Wagner

popular art us still art, but regardless if how emotionally manipulative (and effective) Spider-Man NWH, it doesn't belong in any best picture conversation. It doesn't do anything that actual Oscar winner Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse didnt already fo better. Let the Marvel movies run the table at the MTV and People's Choice award shows. Let the grown ups have the Oscars. please. Do it for Marty!
