ReelBlend started out as AwardsBlend (shout out to the loyal listeners who have been following us since day one), and these days, our conversations feel like they are in line with the early days of the show. We have a LOT of news to get to in the 48th episode of ReelBlend, and a lot of it has to do with the Oscar race.
To begin with, the guys — Sean O’Connell, Jake Hamilton and Kevin McCarthy — are reacting to the new SAG Awards nominations, which gave their Best Ensemble slots to Black Panther, BlackKklansman, A Star is Born, Bohemian Rhapsody and Crazy Rich Asians. The first three movies have heard their name called numerous times, by critics groups and the Golden Globes and Critics’ Choice Awards.
But the latter two got a real boost from the SAGs, with many now believing Bohemian Rhapsody has a chance to make some serious noise in the Oscar nominations. The guys dig in-depth into what the recent nominations mean for the big-picture race.
The guys this week also give you a spoiler-free Aquaman review, before playing this week’s #Blend game, which was all about Movie Sequels. So yeah, this is a jam-packed episode.
