We’re bringing the heat on this special Tuesday edition of the podcast as we recover from a long day of mulling over the 2018 Oscar nominations. We’ll go over almost all of the categories and give our thoughts on who might have been snubbed, but who also got some unexpected good news! Enjoy!

Oscar Nominations 2018 – Who I Hope Wins

Well, the nominations are out! We all woke up this morning and waited with anticipation to see if our favorite movies were given nods for their extreme awesomeness, and we now have the official list. It’s an exciting day and a wonderful reminder of how fun movies can be. If the Oscars are the Super Bowl for movies, the Oscar nominations are like Selection Sunday for the NCAA Tournament. So–here’s who I would like to see win, which, in some (or most) cases, will be different than who I think will ultimately win. Hopefuls are in blue.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is winning all kinds of mainstream awards, but does it win the approval of two dudes from Kentucky? And Oscar season is finally underway, so we give some predictions in preparation for the nominations. Get Out and Logan are two films we’d love to see break through, but will they?

Thanks for listening! Please enjoy!

Disclosure: Yes, we have also included Rogue One on our lists. While we know that Rogue One is a “Star Wars Story” film and not one of the seven episodic films, we love it too much to not include it, and feel it is an integral part to the evolution of the universe moving forward!
