Episode 574: A Veritable Smorgasbord of Best Picture Nominees

As the Oscar season finally closes, the Deucecast trio - Mikey, d$, #TwitterlessDrEarl - pulls in one more Oscar topic: Best Pictures!

But not any Best Pictures... nay, says the horse, oh Neigh! We discard the Best Picture winners (because seriously, we are tired of talking about how crappy Griding Nemo) and go straight for the Nominees!

First up, Birthday movies return, including the birthdays of The Dude... Tom Selleck going to China... Amy Adams daily living... and how terrible movies are in March - oh, and Templeton. The rat.

Then, a quick round of Razzie Award themed Rotten Tomatoes (including a dominant performance that actually was on the up n up. by the way), and finally, the guys scan the scope of the 2000s and look at all the non-winning Best Picture nominees, and give their faves! 

Plus, keep listening for a quick review of ScreaVI and other frivolity. 

Here are films discussed, and where they are streaming at time of recording. 

  • Captain Phillips (HBO Max)
  • Charlotte's Web (for rental)

Episode 573: The Supporting Actor Tourney

 What better way to follow up one heck of a Oscar role tournament than to do one more, this time with Supporting Actors and Supporting Actresses... and as you'll find out, with not quite enough to fill the bracket, a little creativity was used...

Either way, where else can you get the likes of Maria Von Trapp going up against The Graduate's Mrs Robinson or Rita Moreno taking on Marisa Tomei in an epic legendary role battle.  Only at the Deucecast Movie Show, that's right.

And to do take on such a task, Mikey, Dave, and #TwitterlessDrEarl have to bring in a little help - that comes in the shape of Roth from Wyoming, host of the Good Day 4 a Movie Podcast... and then another little surprise joins in to break the ties and give a Commodus style thumbs up or thumbs down.

Episode 572: The Oscar Winners Tourney

In the midst of the Oscar season, the SAG Awards, the PGA Awards, the BAFTAs, the Blockbuster Entertainment Awards, and of course, The Deucies, we mustn't lose sight of the fact that we are still filling the Big Bracket with names and memorable, ICONIC, movie roles -- so what better way to merge  the award season into the Big Bracket with an Oscar Winner Tourney.

And to help decide this all important winner -- Lil G, the Spawn of Scotty Ryfun, joins Mike and d$ while #TwitterlessDrEarl is on assignment in Nova Scotia. 

Sixteen Oscar winning actresses -- only roles that won the golden statue, not just nominated, because if you're not first, you're last -- on one side, and 16 Oscar winning actors on the other.

Tonight's ep involves some incredible actresses -- Emma Stone and Jessica Chastain hope that being recent winners will cement their own legacy in the voters eyes, while Hollywood royalty like Vivian Leigh and Audrey Hepburn hope that multiple generations of stardom will put them through.  Gregory Peck's Atticus Finch strides through the courtroom of Bracket Opinion, while Daniel Plainview drinks your Big Bracket Milkshake. 

Some actresses appear twice, some movies get multiple shots at glory, and for some roles, this might be their only chance to move forward. 

And who knew that Mikey hated Gladiator so doggone much?
