Lambcast #579 Oscar Preview 2021

by Richard Kirkham · April 12, 2021 · Featured, LAMB Devours the Oscars, LAMBcast · No Comments

The movies in 2020 suffered a significant blow with the pandemic shutting down theaters around the world. Many films were held back but a number carried on with streaming access. Those conditions produced these results, films that are admired but are they worthy?

MovieRob takes the reins as host this week. Since he has been our key man on the Oscars for several years now, it makes sense that he knows what we are talking about and can shepherd us through this discussion.  We have a full complement of Lambs in our flock today, but only a couple have seen everything, that doesn’t mean that everyone else had no opinion. 


Sit back and listen to the fireworks as we discuss what might happen on awards night while simultaneously being updated on the BAFTA results. We skip the Rants/Raves and Reviews and we leave off the game, because after all, this whole show is a big guessing game.
