Episode 67: I’m CEO, Bitch (or: Why The Social Network Should’ve Won Best Picture)

Episode 67 - I'm CEO Bitch or: Why The Social Network Should've Won Best Picture | Podcast
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…

…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).
