EP. 304.4 — Best of 2021/Oscars Preview

Amy & Paul break down the past year in film on this Best Of 2021 special episode! They make cases for some of their favorite overlooked films from 2021, from an antic animated family comedy to a royal biopic turned horror film. Plus: a preview of the Oscars, and why this year’s Oscar crop feels like it’s playing it safe.
