Where To Find Our Work/LEAVE US 5* REVIEWS! - 1:02:57 Words of Wisdom/What’s Coming Next - 1:04:00 We discuss the awards, Spike Lee’s gaffe, and we go through most of the winners one by one. Then we reveal some light research on the Oscar history of the Palme d’Or, standing ovations throughout this and previous festivals, and some cool facts from the internet about this year’s Cannes slate. Then we react to the receptions of 11 more Cannes films of interest to us and our search for future Oscar winners. This particular episode is a shameless act of aggregation as we did not attend the festival. But it’s still a lot of fun to gather all of the critical and audience reception numbers and quotes and tweets and red carpet memes and acquisition news and then react to it all through an Oscars lens. Soooo… sorry, we’re not sorry, especially when we can trust a few friends of the show throughout this presentation. Sorry for some audio tics in this episode. AM’s microphone reverted to an older setting, and we have to fix it, hopefully for the next show. But other than a few little dips & raises in volume, hopefully it doesn’t mess with you too much. Otherwise, we did end the episode with a few quickie reviews to Space Jam: A New Legacy and Pig. We’ll be returning to our own movie reviewing again soon as we head into late July and August, including some upcoming releases stateside from the Cannes film festival. So do stay tuned for more Oscar Profiles. We’ll also be on the lookout for the fall film festival announcements from Venice, TIFF, and New York, the latter of which we attend regularly each year. So go back to our reviews from the spring festivals of Tribeca and AFI DOCS and look forward to our coverage of NY, etc this fall on upcoming episodes of Oscar Race Checkpoint.
