Oscar talk with Erik Lundegaard
And the winner is… certainly not Karl or Jason. This is the first of two shows featuring Karl in a very altered state. And by that we mean he attempts to wrest control of the program from Jason and the guest by lobbing in an unhealthy dose of rants, diatribes, and pontification. As for Jason, well, he didn’t really see any of the films nominated in the major categories, but that doesn’t stop him from chiming in with his “humble” opinion. Fortunately, film critic Erik Lundegaard is on the scene to offer his keen insights into this year’s Academy Awards nominees.
Erik has written film reviews for the Seattle Times, MSNBC.com, as well as articles for the Huffington Post, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Christian Science Monitor, Slate, Film Quarterly and The Believer. Check out Erik’s film reviews on his site eriklundegaard.com. Congratulations in advance to all of this year’s winners and to those who fail to take home Oscar gold, remember that it’s an honor just to be… blah, blah, blah.
