Aaron Bleyaert

I first met Aaron at one of the final Meltdown shows and have always been a fan of his work on Conan. It was great to finally make this episode work with Aaron's incredibly busy schedule.

Episode 152 - F**k You, Kevin

LISTEN TO THE EPISODE ON ITUNES HERE

[NSFW WARNING: EXPLICIT CONTENT]

On today's episode, Austin and I catch up after a month long unintended hiatus.


From the moment January 2019 started, things became insanely busy for us without any warning. I was Producing shows for the Sundance Film Festival, Austin ened up filming a role in a movie, I also ended up getting sick and Austin made some career strides all while prepping for an art show and a small move. Before we knew it, January was over. I also had a run in with a guy named Kevin who inspired a new sign off the podcast, which is also the name of this episode. Listen to the episode for the full story. 

We're happy to be back and have a lot of great episodes ahead. Later this week we have Aaron Bleyaert from Conan on the show and all of our Oscar coverage starts next week! 

Enjoy this new episode!

Tim's 25th Annual SAG Award Picks

Award Season roles on tonight with the 25th Annual SAG Awards LIVE from the Shrine Auditorium here in Los Angeles, hosted by one of my favorite people, Megan Mullally!


Tonight's award winners usually help give us an idea of the top contenders to win the Oscar in a few weeks. The "Best Picture" category here does leave it up for some questions though as it's for best cast, not best picture.  There is some really stiff competition tonight and I can't wait to see who wins. Here are my picks for this year's SAG Awards.

Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role

Rami Malek, “Bohemian Rhapsody”


Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role

Glenn Close, “The Wife”


Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role

Mahershala Ali, “Green Book”


Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role

Amy Adams, “Vice”


Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture

“Black Panther”

This may come as a surprise that I am picking Black Panther in this category. The other film I could see come in and take this would be Crazy Rich Asians. Where this category is for an entire cast, it's different than selecting Best Picture for the Golden Globes or Oscars. Of all of the nominess, Black Panther had the most outstanding full cast performance in my opinion. 


Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries

Darren Criss, “Assassination of Gianni Versace”
 

Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries:

Patricia Arquette, “Escape at Dannemora”


Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series:

Sterling K. Brown, “This Is Us”

Great category! I could see just about anybody win this, but other then Sterling K. Brown, I could see Jason Bateman as a winner here. 


Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series:

Sandra Oh, “Killing Eve”


Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series:

Bill Hader, “Barry”

I'm kind of surprised by Hader's Golden Globe loss. I'm expecting to see the Emmy Winner pick up a SAG here. 


Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series:

Rachel Brosnahan, “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”

This category is owned by Rachel Brosnahan at this point. It would be a shock if anybody else was to win. 


Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series:

“This Is Us” 

I could see the cast of Ozark take this too. That show is highly underated and deserves some love. 


Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series:

“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”

Some of the best TV is in this category and is possibly the stiffest competition tonight. I would be surprised to see anybody knock out The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel though. 


Outstanding Action Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Comedy or Drama Series:

“Marvel’s: Daredevil”


Outstanding Action Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Motion Picture:

“Avengers: Infinity War”

The SAG Awards will be LIVE at 5PM EST on TBS & TNT. Tune in!

Tim's 76th Annual Golden Globe Picks

Award Season is officialy here as the Golden Globes kick off tonight, hosted by Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh!


As usual, I kick things off with my predictions for who I think will win this year's awards. VICE leads the film pack with 6 nominations this year, and "The Asssasination Gianni Versaci" leads the TV pack with 5 nominations. But will they walk away with the most wins, only time will tell. As the nominees arrive on the Red Carpet just down the street from us at The Beverly Hilton, sit back and enjoy my picks. Don't miss the Golden Globes on NBC at 8PM/5PM PT. Enjoy!

Best Motion Picture – Drama

“If Beale Street Could Talk”

First pick, and I'm most likely wrong. This will probably go to "A Star is Born", even though if "Beale Street Could Talk" is a far superior film. Honestly, I feel like "A Star is Born" is the weakest in this category, but for some reason people love it. 


Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama

Lady Gaga - “A Star Is Born”

Such a great group of actresses, McCarthy could be a surpise winner here, but Gaga should have this award locked down. As much as I didn't care for "A Star is Born", Gaga's performance was the one saving grace of this film. Don't forget she is also a previous Globe winner for "American Horor Story". 


Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama

Rami Malek - “Bohemian Rhapsody”


Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy

“VICE"

Don't count out "Green Book" here. I loved the film and I think it's right up the HFPA alley, but "VICE" leads the nominations for a reason. 


Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy


Olivia Colman - “The Favourite”


Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy

Christian Bale - “Vice”


Best Actress in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture

Amy Adams - “Vice”

Don't count out Emma Stone for "The Favourite" here. While this is a tight race, I think it's a battle between Stone and Adams. 


Best Actor in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture

Mahershala Ali - “Green Book”

Such an incredible group of perfomances from great actors. Mahershala should see another Golden Globe win here, but this is a category ripe for possible surprises. 


Best Motion Picture – Animated

“Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse”

I mean, is there really any question here?


Best Motion Picture – Foreign Language

“Roma”


Best Director – Motion Picture

Alfonso Cuaron - “Roma”


                                                  Best Screenplay – Motion Picture

Adam McKay - “Vice”

Ok, so maybe this is some personal bias as most of you know I'm a big fan of Adam McKay, but the Oscar winner and multiple Golden Globe nominee is a HFPA favorite. However, the HFPA also loves obscurity and films that aren't quite in the norm, so don't be surprised to see "The Favourite" sneak in with a win here.


Best Original Score – Motion Picture

Marc Shaiman - “Mary Poppins Returns”


Best Original Song – Motion Picture

“Shallow” - “A Star Is Born”

This song as taken the charts by storm! I can't see any possible way it doesn't win. 


Best Television Series – Drama

“The Americans"


Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Drama

Julia Roberts - “Homecoming”


 Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Drama

Matthew Rhys - “The Americans”


Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy

“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” 

What an incredible list of nominees. I would love to see "Barry" take this home, and I would really love to see one of my absolute favorites "The Good Place" get a win, but "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" is a powerhouse favorite of the HFPA and after their Emmy success, I think they are the favorite to win. 


Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy

Rachel Brosnahan - “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”

I would LOVE to see Kristen Bell take this home for "The Good Place", but I think Rachel Bresnahan will continue her award success. 


Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy

Bill Hader - “Barry”

Such a great list of nominees, but after Hader's Emmy win, I think he will be able to keep the winning going. 


Best Television Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television

“The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story”


Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television

Amy Adams - “Sharp Objects"


Best Performance by an Actor in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television

Darren Criss - “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story”

I excpect to see Darren Criss add a Golden Globe to his recent Emmy win for this role. 


Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television

Alex Borstein - “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”



Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television

Henry Winkler - “Barry”

Episode 151 - 2018: The Year We Learned Things

LISTEN TO THE EPISODE ON ITUNES HERE

[NSFW WARNING: EXPLICIT CONTENT]

Happy New Years, Everybody! Today is our annual New Years Eve episode of the podcast!


Austin and I sat down and reflected on the whirlwind of a year that 2018 has been. With our first full year living in Los Angeles under our belts, we have a lot to look forward to in 2019. 

So often we see the circular post of "this past year was horrible, here's to next year" only to be repeated time and time again on New Years Eve. We've instead decided to look at how things may have beaten us up this year, and what we've learned and taken away from those experiences to make 2019 even better.


Our 2018 Instagram Top 9

We reflected on the some of the great times we've had, the awesome events we got to attend, and some of the new changes in our lives. We don't know what 2019 has instore for us, but we're ready for it. 

Thank you to everybody who has continued to support us this year! We hope everybody has a safe and Happy New Year. We look forward to sharing 2019 with you. 

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
