Oscars 2014! This omnibus episode stitches together all 9 of the minisodes from last night’s Oscar telecast. Ellen, Slave, Gravity, selfies, Blanchett, McConnaughey, Hustle, Menzel, Midler, Minelli, the pizza guy and much, much more!
Want to keep up with the inane shenanigans of Team Mamo over the course of Oscar Eve? Go to our Tumblr site for Mamo Minisodes, which will drop onto the internet somewhere between 5 and 12 times over the course of the night. (Updates via the unmonitored Mamo twitter account.) Or follow Price and myself on twitter to see what two wankers on a couch where wanking “isn’t allowed” do with their time.
On a personal note, if Rob Ford and/or Jordan Catalano win an Academy Award, I will very likely freak out.
Mamo tries to get back on belated track as the Oscar ceremony roars toward us… we give you our Oscar picks, in case you still haven’t entered your office Oscar pool; talk Guardians of the Galaxy and general awesomeness; and hold a brief memorial for the brave, beautiful Mamo 340. And then Price nearly dies. It’s great! It’s Mamo.
The troubling weekend just past is pulled apart by the Matts as they try to make sense of Woody Allen, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and our cultural relationship with celebrity, for good or ill.
Dinner for five! Mamo welcomes THREE special guest stars to a roundtable discussion of Manohla Dargis’ recent contention that the American indie market is overstuffed with product. Row Three’s Kurt Halfyard along with Dave Voigt and Ryan McNeil tell the Matts what’s what. Listen here.
Remember the days when a movie like Jack Ryan would come out, do whatever business it would do (or not do), and we would get together and analyze the project in depth in terms of why the audiences were (or weren’t) responding to it? These aren’t those days. A potpourri episode of Mamo ensues! Ryan! Bats/Supes! Marvel! Ebert! Armond! Time Bandits! And more.
In which I talk South African ass-sex and being right here waiting for someone with three of my favourite podcasters! Listen to the time-banditry here.
It’s Mamo Christmas! The Oscar Nominations for 2013 are announced and as usual, there’s a whole lot of people who could’ve sworn “merit” was going to enter into this somewhere. Mamo discusses.
