With the 2018 Oscar Nominations hot off the presses and fresh on the desk of every backseat filmmaker in the world, Hail Satire! is proud to present a little bit of discussion on the surprises, snubs and smart money for each of the major categories (picture, directing, writing, acting and animation). Will certified fresh stories like Get Out or Lady Bird win the day, or will well worn World War II fare like Dunkirk or Darkest Hour triumph again? How'd a madcap fantasy like Shape of Water edge out obvious Oscar bait like The Post? Did you even see Phantom Thread, and how many more final Daniel Day Lewis performances will we get? Plus the history making Logan, the overlooked Florida Project and Lego Batman, the scandalous Disaster Artist and the ballsy frontrunner Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri. From the fly over country in the gut of the American Southwest, this is Ebert and Ernie, Film Critics - performed by Wesley Moon and Vic Shuttee. Originally recorded January 23, 2018. Hail Satire! is hosted and produced by Vic Shuttee.
