RU? Instant Reaction Review Podcast Ep. 86 – American Hustle, Awards, And More

American Hustle is the talk of the award season, and lands solidly on our Best of the Year lists as well, but in this show we explored a few of the flaws, and why it didn’t get perfect marks from us. It is a film that is a crazy amount of fun, and, as I mention during the show, it is one that had it not won the Critics’ Choice Movie Award for Best Ensemble, it would have negated the merit of the award altogether. The award only exists to celebrate just a such a film, and set of performances, and there has hardly been a movie that deserved it more.

Given the awards already won, this one is a lock on a lot of Oscars, and the attention to Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Jennifer Lawrence, and Bradley Cooper is all deserved.

We also talk quite a bit about the way the award season seemed to be heading, some awards already handed out, and what the heck seemed to be going on with the ability to predict the Oscars based on the shuffling of wins from other awards.
