LAMBcast #104: 2012 Academy Award Predictions

by Dylan · February 19, 2012 · LAMBcast, Podcasts · 8 Comments

Once again, we here at the LAMBcast pull out our crystal balls and attempt to predict the winners for the upcoming Oscars. Or at least some of them. Rather than cycle through all 24 categories, we cherry-picked 10 of the big ones to prognosticate, while sprinkling in our commentary on snubs (like, say…Drive?) and thoughts on the production and nomination process along the way. On hand was your host Dylan, as well as LAMBcast regulars Dan Heaton and Mike, and then we brought in the big guns, in the form of two awards season experts, David of Never Too Early Movie Predictions and Ryan of Lord of the Films.

Also on tap:

* Rants of the Week
* Raves of the Week
* Last LAMB Standing (Two of the longest games ever! You can determine if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.)

A couple notes:

* Apologies for the slight static issues you’ll hear this week. I hope it’s not too annoying. We didn’t have the greatest connection all-around.

* Due to the bandwidth issues I had with Podomatic last week, I’m getting rid of the embeddable player that is usually included with these posts. The show can be found, of course, via iTunes – just do a search for “LAMBcast.” Also, I always post a link to the show on the LAMBcast’s Facebook page, and there’s a player there if you’d like to listen online.

* Shows will eventually make their way to the LAMBcast Archives. If you’d ever like to catch up on back episodes, go there.

If you’re interested, you too can be a LAMBcaster – we love new blood! For more information on the LAMBcast, check out the topic at the LAMB Forums. Music provided royalty-free by Kevin MacLeod’s Incompetech website. Big thanks to Kevin for providing this service. Opening song by Cake. The LAMBcast loves feedback, too – if you’d like yours read on a future show, leave it in the comments section at the LAMB. Please visit and like our Facebook page, and finally, we’re on iTunes, and would still love a review, even if it’s a bad one.

Thanks for listening!

    WTF at the 1:07 mark? Or is it just my download?

  2. Joel Burman says:

    Nope I had the same problem unfortunately.

  3. Dylan says:

    I heard about this from Dan Heaton as well. I spaced on it last night but will look into it soon.

  4. Shep. Burman says:

    It wasn’t super bad like that old episode where it was like 30 minutes of intertwined out of sync dialogue. I’d look into what happened but not do any thing about this ep.

  5. Rachel says:

    Agree with Joel. It straigtens itself out eventually. We heard enough to know you really liked Attack the Block and then eventually figured out what the first LLS subject was. It was only a few minutes of confusion.

  6. Okay, maybe it’s because I’m suffering from sleep deprivation…but where’s the link to allow me to listen to the LAMBcast??

    Hey twodude – Glad you’re interested in listening. I posted this above:
