This podcast is brought to you completely unedited in a wild attempt to exorcise my control freak demons.
Discussed James Cameron, 3D as the future of cinema (and the past of cinema), The Last Station, Avatar, the box office of the Best Pictures then and now, RomCom Queens and Oscar, Adam Shankman and Oscars 'as you've never seen them', Dave Karger's doubts about The Hurt Locker, Sandra Bullock 'learning her place', the Precious resurgence, self-fulfilling prediction prophesies and "Oscar Stories", Maggie Gyllenhaal and Jeremy Renner.
- "The real nominees"... are they the ones everyone assumes they were? Nathaniel's not so sure.
- What on earth will it take for Meryl Streep to win a 3rd?
- What will the future hold for Carey Mulligan and Gabby Sidibe?
