Mike 1 returns as we react to the nominations for the Screen Actors Guild Awards and the Golden Globes. Yes, we find some silver linings and many nominees we can praise. But dammit all, some of these picks were RIDICULOUS, and we do not hold back in our criticisms.

Also Mike here: ...soooo, I feel very stupid after relistening to my analysis on the Globes Best Screenplay category at the end of this episode. I completely misread a statistic about the crossover between the 5 Globe Screenplay noms and the Oscars, I remembered my rage for Jordan Peele Get Out snub, and ignoring common sense, I became wildly wrong about the overall stat. Of course, the Globes screenplay category has over an 85% crossover on their last 11 years of nominations. Of course, I let my selective memory run wild. Of course, I was wrong. Anyway, Mike 1 sets me straight... somewhat. But he didn’t have the stats in front of him to correct me all the way. So yeah, sorry about that, and we thank you for the understanding.
Otherwise, this episode was a swirl of passionate feelings. We’re glad to be recording together again as Mike 1 has recovered from his surgery, and to show our love, we make a lot of jokes that range from some of the best we’ve ever told to some of the worst. Again, you’re welcome, and we’re sorry.
We’re also furious at some of these nominations as a few critically panned films have now, somehow been propped up as awards worthy. Worse than that, this is not unprecedented. So to show our rage, we drive home some long angry arguments against all the belligerent to the baffling decisions made by the HFPA and yes, to a much lesser extent, by SAG. Maybe the cabin fever of our pandemic quarantines is finally getting the better of the both of us. Maybe Mike 1 has officially brought me over to the dark side. Or maybe we’re right to structure much of this particular show to argue against some of these nominations, even if it’s at the expense of taking more time to celebrate the many others we love.
I truly don’t know if our party pooper mentality in this episode was right or not, and you will have to be the judge. There are legions of more positive episodes of MMO to enjoy in our past catalog and to look forward to in our upcoming programming if the vibes you prefer are elsewhere. In any event, we’re glad at Mike 1’s return, we’re thrilled to be nearing the launch of MikeMikeAndOscar.com, and we’ll be hitting record again soon to react to Monday’s Critics Choice Award Noms and Wednesday’s Oscar Shortlists.
