InHouse #6 | Oscars 2017

I know, I know, we’ve been neglecting you, and we’re still undecided as to the overall direction of this podcast, but we just had to make an episode for Oscars 2017, so here we are.

If you listened to our InHouse Oscar podcast from last year you’ll know that these roundtable affairs are booze-fuelled, fun and sometimes lengthy. This is no different, so here is two hours of me trying to keep this conversation in between the lines and keep Peter Morris, Ged Murray, Eimear Gavin, Claire Byrne and Richard Drumm on topic. And I think we largely succeed in that.

On the agenda this year, we discuss the #OscarsSoWhite controversy one year on, we talk about a few films that were overlooked by this year’s Academy, and we delve into the following categories: Actor in a Supporting Role, Actress in a Supporting Role, Actress in a Leading Role, Actor in a Leading Role, Writing (Adapted Screenplay), Writing (Original Screenplay), Directing and Best Picture. All the nominees are listed below.

Fun guessing game for you to play – Ged said that someone was “given shit and made lemonade”, which Oscar nominee is he talking about? Listen to the podcast to find out.
