So the Oscar nominations came out recently and I have seen very little of them. The parents among you will understand — it’s tough to go to the movies when you have kids.
But I will say this — I was super happy to see a film like Mad Max get so many nominations.
Because at this point, I still think it’s the best film of the year and movies like Mad Max don’t typically get props at the Oscars. It’s about as far from ‘Oscar bait’ as you can imagine. The opposite end of that spectrum: The Revenant. I feel like the Academy just needs to go ahead and give Leo that Oscar so he can just move on with his life and make screwball comedies or some shit.
What is your film of the year?
