We’re back with a new podcast episode, this time heeding your cries for justice. A couple of weeks ago we asked you to save one – and only one – Best Picture nominee, from the following: Brokeback Mountain (my pick), Inglourious Basterds (Getter’s pick), or The Social Network (Nikhat’s pick). All of them are outstanding movies that walked home empty-handed on Oscar night. And so you voted…
If you could go back in time and make one of these Best Picture Oscar nominees a rightful winner, which would you pick?
We'll talk about it in our next podcast episode!?️

…and we listened! Tune in to hear the many reasons why The Social Network (and, let’s be real, David Fincher) should’ve taken home the Oscar. In Episode 67, we also bring another instalment of the Interesting Movie of the Fortnight Feature, where we talk about the Indian epic Padmaavat (2018), Darren Aronofsky’s controversial mother! (2017) and, to feed Getter’s Sam Rockwell mania, Laggies (2014).
