    The running bit about Star Wars was hilarious. Great episode!

    I actually have seen The Hunting Ground (directed by Kirby Dick btw) and the issue is very political. The film is about how universities systematically provide no support for victims of sexual abuse and refuse to go after offenders in order to make their numbers look more favorable so they can receive more money from the federal government, school boosters, and of coarse incoming students. Nobody will send their kids to a school that has a documented history of sexual assault.

    Loved (and totally agree with) the Star Wars outrage in this ep!

    “Snoke Machine” made me laugh out loud. Great recap of the ceremony.

    I found the fact that Tyler’s mic started to distort as he talked about sound mixing and sound editing amusingly ironic.

    Speaking of TOP FIVE, Ian Brill jumps to my top 5 favorite guests.

    I think the major reason SPOTLIGHT won over THE BIG SHORT and THE REVENANT (in particular) is the way the Academy votes. THE BIG SHORT and THE REVENANT are more divisive, so they would get more last place votes, whereas SPOTLIGHT was most likely in the top half of most ballots. I don’t know how the votes are scored, but I wouldn’t be surprised if THE REVENANT got a similar amount of top votes as SPOTLIGHT, but many more low votes.

    Great episode! I could listen to the comedy stylings of Eaken and Brill all day.

    Wouldn’t it have been amazing if John Cho, Kal Penn, Adam Beach and Michael Pena came out and addressed that this entire Oscar telecast was so very small minded. There were, I can’t count how many mentions, of how a black person can’t work in Hollywood, yet Asians, Indians, Native Americans, and Latinos are hardly EVER given leading roles, and the parts they do play almost always feed into the stereotype of gang member or computer nerd or drunk. This diversity problem is not BLACK and WHITE. Michael Pena should be a leading man!
