This week, I sat down with new guest Manny Casillas (Crityrion on Letterboxd) to talk about Oscar snubs throughout history, further breakdown this year’s nominees, and attempt to dig up as much dirt on Kyrsten as possible.
This week, Tiny and I welcome special guest Ben Sears to the show! Ben is a patreon supporter who is known for his photography, going to elementary school (for a time) with Tiny, and paying us to be a guest on the podcast! In this special episode, we rundown this year’s Oscar nominees! Enjoy.
Coming at you a little early in the week, here’s the latest episode of The Obsessive Viewer Podcast! This is a very special episode of the show as we broke down the Oscar nominees with the help of friends from 7 other podcasts! Timestamps and links can of course be found below and in the show notes/lyrics page of the episode on your mp3 player.
I am very proud of how this episode turned out and I want to thank all the awesome shows who helped us out with it!

Until the court […]
A little dry and, despite its efforts, slightly unimaginative animated movie. The characters' journey is enjoyable with some poignant moments. But the macguffin chase and sidekick character just feel uninspired. Good songs, though.
Purely by coincidence today turned out to be a "family in the 80s moves somewhere remote where the father hopes to make a name for himself at the expense of his family's happiness" double feature between this and Minari.The Nest was overall pretty okay. There is some particularly strong acting by Carrie Coon and Jude Law. The scenes where they […]
Beautiful family drama. I loved spending time with these characters. The contrast in tone between Jacob and Monica's argument at the beginning of the movie and the one at the end underscores the strong writing. Loved it.
