If you’ve been paying any attention to the LAMB site – or the movie world in general – recently, you’ll have noticed we’ve entered Oscar season, so this week on the Lambcast we’re taking a look back at some of the many great (and not-so-great) films to have been awarded that highest of honours, the award for Best Picture, and we’re doing this in the best way we know how, with a movie draft! The poll to vote for the best team will be up tomorrow, but for now listen to the show!
Joining Jay for the bloodthirsty fun were Nick Rehak, Rebecca Sharp, Howard Casner and Sean Homrig. Find out who prefers Annie Hall to Star Wars, who agrees Shakespeare In Love deserved the award and who hates what more – The Sound Of Music, The Lord Of The Rings or No Country For Old Men.
Also on tap: Rants and Raves of the Week and an Oscar-themed game of Last Lamb Standing.
