Oscar Countdown!

In what has felt like the longest Awards season EVER, the Oscars are just ONE WEEK AWAY!

Hang on!

The Chair has predictions… The Chair has potential upsets… The Chair has OPINIONS! And it’ll all be revealed in this week’s Notes from a Chair podcast. The Chair, with Holly and our special guest, will break down Hollywood’s biggest night from awards seen and unseen. Who will grab the industry’s biggest prize (and who will look the best doing it)? Will it be Jessica and Will for Hollywood’s homecoming king and queen? Has anyone really watched The Eyes of Tammy Faye? Does it even matter? Will Coda take a bite out of Power of the Dog? How many more puns do you think we have left (hint: a lot more)? Stay tuned for our mid-week podcast on all things 94th Oscars…

Till then…

And The Nominees Are…

With the news that Tracee Ellis Ross and absolute internet delight Leslie Jordan are reading the Oscar nominees on Tuesday… well, we’re psyched (and so is Mr. Jordan!)

Since they’ll be much to say once those (perfectly pronounced) names are read, The Chair is holding any further comment until we can assess all the snubs, surprises, and snoozes (you know they’ll be some). Stay tuned for a new podcast tackling all things Oscar nominations — coming THIS week! In the meantime, to prepare of course, check out the most recent episode of Pod from a Chair where we breakdown our nomination predictions (Will! Nicole! LMM! and Ben?!?). Till then…

Episode 21: Television Finales 2023: So long, Roys! Pod From A Chair

This television season saw the departure of some of our all time faves and Emmy darlings: The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Succession, Ted Lasso, and Barry. In this ep, the Chair and Holly unpack the final seasons of these critically acclaimed shows — and ** SPOILER ALERT ** give our hot takes on the final installments. We'll miss those rascally Roys, the Greyhound underdogs, Noho Hank's style, but most of all Midge's humor and hats.  With bonus Somebody Somewhere content (tini tinis for everyone!) and what we're looking forward to next. Did we mention there are spoilers?? You've been warned!
