Oscar Talk, Kenneth Lonergan Interview CAN'T WAIT! Podcast Ep 5So many Oscar contenders, so little time.

In this week's nearly Rachel Horner-free episode of CAN'T WAIT!, the Moviefone crew (Tim Hayne, Phil Pirrello, and Tony Maccio) do their best to filter through the onslaught of current Oscar frontrunners and come up with some best guesses as to who and what will be nominated. (Spoiler alert: All categories belong to the 1995 comedy classic "Heavyweights." Not really, but you'll get the reference if you listen to the podcast.)

Director Kenneth Lonergan joins the podcast in the midst of our Oscars analysis, chatting with Phil about topics ranging from his Oscar-buzz-worthy "Manchester by the Sea" to his love of "Star Trek" and how it plays into the Casey Affleck-starring drama. Phil may or may not have called him Kenny. Also, apologies for the audio quality this time around -- we're still working out a few kinks with the on-location sessions.

After mentioning a few more Academy Award-worthy movies that we haven't seen but would like to at some point in our lives, we venture into recommendation territory. Noticeably absent Rachel Horner blesses us with her recommendation(s) from the road, while Tony and Phil offer up their picks from the comfort of the studio. Tim, on the other hand, contributes nothing.
