A bunch of precursor awards and nominations have been announced since the last recording, so it’s time for the Eye on the Prize team to adjust their Oscar barometers. Join Justin Zarian, Ian Butcher and our newest co-host Shakyl Lambert as we discuss our week, recent Oscar news, the first round of major critic awards and our personal favorite wins for Best Actor and Actress in the last decade. We had a blast recording this week, so we hope you enjoy it.

Note: The AFI Awards released their list literally a few hours after we stopped recording. Just in case you’re wondering why we allude to it but never discuss it. Tune in probably next week to hear more!

Written by

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
