Jordan Morris sits in for Guy and is joined by Margaret, Wynter, and Karen to talk about the Oscar nominations announced last week. Guy Branum calls in to discuss Annette Bening’s performance in 20th Century Women. All that, plus everyone’s jams. It’s a jam-packed show this week, friends.
That’s My Jam:
Each week we’ll add everyone’s jams to this handy Spotify playlist.
Caution: There are unbleeped swear words that happen during the musical portions of this episode. If you are listening with kids, keep that in mind.

On Adam Ruins Hollywood, Adam shattered the facade of awards shows, red carpets, and reality TV. So now that we're steeped in the awards show season, we brought Rachel Bloom onto the podcast, who appeared on the TV show, and is a red carpet expert! She is the Star and Co-Creator of the fantastic CW show, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, which actually won her a Golden Globe last year. Rachel tells us what really goes on at the Golden Globes and Academy Awards - how red carpets are really a marketing strategy for fashion designers and how campaigning for awards is integral to the awards show process.
Hey buddies! So happy to see you! Hope all is going well with you! Hey, we have a WYR question for you! Would you go with The Doctor as a companion or would you rather not risk it?

When Captain Picard finds Ambassador Spock on Romulus, he attempts to talk him into returning home before their next meal. Spock demurs, and instead chooses to visit a ramen place everyone's raving about. Meanwhile, Commander Riker goes to a karaoke bar with Worf, whose interpretation of an opera song is not a hit with the audience. Do Trekkers have to choose between "Old Testament Rod" or "New Testament Rod"? What is an HHHHJ? It's the episode where Adam messes up his audio!
When someone wants to know what the worst zoo animal is, Mark and Hal STEP UP. Join them for a collection of the weirdest, most unpleasant, and dangerous animals you can find in any zoo anywhere. One only will wind up on the bottom!
Even though the beginning of this week's episode sounds like we've started a new Riverdale fan/hatecast, I promise we haven't, we just get really passionate about Archie and teen dramas. Since we needed to discuss the legitimacy of this new show, we thought it would be fitting to discuss the idea of fan-ing out over celebrities, and find out that all three of us have done some somewhat creepy-ish things over the years...
Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas
The Maximum Fun crew will be throwing down at The Whistler the evening before their inaugural (and sold out) Very Very Fun Day festival. MaxFun honcho Jesse Thorn, comedian Ricky Carmona, and neither-honcho-nor-comedian Erik Westra will be DJing throughout the night. They’ll be playing a mix of classic soul (Jesse), hip-hop (Erik), and Chicago House (Ricky). They might not know how to beat match, but they can still make you dance. As an added bonus, $1 from every drink will go to local Logan Square charities. Come hang out and have a Very Very Fun Night.
