In this episode, Tyler and David discuss their feelings- both positive and negative- about the Oscars.
As far as my reaction towards Casa De Mi Padre goes, if it was not for Paranormal Activity 4, I thought it was the biggest pile of bull I have seen in years. I have to admit that Spanish is my first language and I am somewhat well verse with Mexican telenovelas, so maybe my viewing experience was somewhat going against what the creative team behind the film were striving for. Nevertheless, it was a painful viewing experience; it was so painful to watch. At best, it would probably worked as a short Youtube sketch, and even in that scenario, I reckon it would still would not have been a pleasant viewing experience. Seriously, I hate this film!
My two favorite lines from the episode:
“Nobody goes to see a movie for the wonderful carpentry” and “He doesn’t overstay his welcome, a minute and a half, OUT!”
I both love the Oscars and am disappointed by the Oscars every year for a lot of the reasons you mentioned. I do miss the songs and the clapping during the “In Memorial”. I have little to no hope for Seth Macfarlane but I still love movies so I will still watch the Oscars. Sigh.
I want to say Tyler said that there has never been an animated feature that has won best feature.
Beauty and the Beast.
BEAUTY AND THE BEAST was indeed nominated, but lost to THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS.
A little behind on the podcasts, and two things, Stefon’s first appearance was in a sketch where he played Ben Affleck’s brother/screenwriting partner in a Hollywood pitch meeting. It at least give a bit of backstory/character for his later weekend updates. I tried to find a better link on hulu or youtube but the only link I have is this one:
Also – I love that Sopranos episode “Luxury Lounge” that you two discussed in this podcast. You probably already know this but Matthew Weiner wrote it and he has a great commentary on the season 6A DVD for this episode.
