This is exciting! On this special BONUS minisode (it's short for "miniature episode," friends), Julie discusses the 2012 Academy Awards with New York Times reporter DAVE ITZKOFF and cinephile GARY THA SQUIRREL, who came to the New York Times building in a Wawa bag toted by TOM SCHARPLING--- just to talk about Oscars, Oscars, Oscars!
Join Gary, Dave and Julie in a respectful roundtable discussion, during which they address burning questions from last night, such as:
-Who got the worse snub: Scorcese or Albert Brooks?
-Will "Community" get a post-Oscars Descendants bump?
-Where was Tom Cruise during the majority of the broadcast?
-What happens when Nikki Finke decides to be funny?
-Can Billy Crystal be stopped from doing blackface?
-Did Gary like Midnight in Paris? Does he have an anecdote about Diane Lane?
Plus! Gary shares with us his three point plan to make next year's ceremony dazzle us all. And Dave hints at some tidbits from his book about the great film, Network!
And, as an even bigger bonus, the great TED LEO wrote a brand new theme song to the show--complete with a tropical beat that will cause you to shake your maracas. Even you, Albert Nobbs!
You want the mini-sode? YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE MINISODE! But here it is anyway. Hooray!
