Slackers Selection CinemaCast: Episode 48




Thanks for checking out this week's edition of the Slackers Selection CinemaCast!

The Oscars were just two nights ago, and we had plenty of thoughts and reactions to detail. Only two of us, Alex and Derek, were available post-Oscars to get our thoughts in, but we still cover much of the ceremony, from the overall show and telecast, to the winners, losers, upsets, and our least favorite wins on the night.

"Argo" took home Best Picture, which was generally expected, but the Best Director category and a few of the Acting categories provided a bit more surprise. We also saw the sixth tie for an award in the event's 85 year history, and the first ever in one of the tech categories. That was a neat thing to see.

Overall, it felt like the crop of winners was strong this year, and for the most part, we were both pleased with the outcomes. As for the presentation and the show's direction, we had our fair share of complaints.

Give a listen to this week's podcast below to hear all of our in-depth thoughts!
