A very chic poster for this years Palm D’Or winner, the lengthy drama that is being talked about more for its lesbian sex scene than anything else going on in the movie. A colleague of mine photoshopped a certain feature of this poster 90 degrees, a slight tweak that the marketing department may have missed to capitalize on the online chatter about the film.
This week sees a return to form with all sorts of negativity and disagreement. But [in best DeForest Kelley voice] for God sake man, it’s Anne Hathaway. She’s worth fighting for! Outside of that little tussle, Sean Kelly from SKonMovies.com joins in on the discussion with a bit more of a unique Oscar experience having seen the whole thing in a packed theater. For the majority of this Cinecast it is a look back at Sunday nights Hollywood back-patting at the Academy Awards. We talk about it all: from winners to losers to hosting to gowns (OK, not really) to stage direction to orchestration. Look no further; it’s all in here. From there we venture into the Watch List with Kurt proving Matt Gamble’s prognostication mostly correct with a viewing of Margaret. We grind the axe a bit more (though less enthusiastically) about modern biblical epics while Sean looks at a couple of Oscar-nominated documentaries and Andrew continues his Star Treking.
As always, please join the conversation by leaving your own thoughts in the comment section below and again, thanks for listening!
Full show notes are under the seats…
Would you like to know more…?
We cable-knit the nine Oscar night mini-Mamo episodes into a sweater of showness. Jennifer Lawrence! Daniel Day-Lewis! Anne Hathaway’s nipples! They’re all here, except for the nipples.

A couple of news tidbits for your discussion.
Adele’s Theme Song for 007 Adventure, Skyfall leaked online and it is the best Bond Theme since Tina Turner’s Golden Eye tune, at least at first blush.
Also, AMPAS has selected “Family Guy” creator, and very solid crooner, Seth MacFarlane who earned some serious greenbacks for Universal Studios with TED. Expect a Billy Crystal musical number to open this years Oscars. Expect Neil Patrick Harris to be crying in the cheap seats.
And in the Trolling Department(tm), Armond White says that Kingdom of The Crystal Skull (Indy IV) is a much better constructed film than Raiders of the Lost Ark, rhythmically and intellectually.
