    Hello Derbyites!

    Kevin Jacobsen here letting you all know that I have an Oscar podcast called “And the Runner-Up Is,” which highlights the film that was the probable runner-up in each Oscar Best Picture race. Every week I have a special guest who helps me break down the film, why it lost Best Picture and whether it, in fact, deserved to win.

    So far I’ve had on several Gold Derby colleagues, including Charlie Bright, Amanda Spears, Tom O’Brien, Rob Licuria, Cordell Martin, Andrew Carden, Zach Laws, Tony Ruiz, Sam Eckmann and Joyce Eng, as well as other awards experts like Sasha Stone and Erik Anderson.

    The podcast is available now on Apple Podcasts/iTunes, Stitcher and Google Play for anyone interested! I’ve posted 20 episodes, covering every Oscar year from 1998-2017. I’d love to have this be a discussion thread as I post more episodes!

    Anyone here a listener? And if so, what do like/dislike about the show?

    Some of my favorite discussions so far have been on La La Land, The Social Network, There Will Be Blood, The Aviator, Mystic River, The Pianist, and Saving Private Ryan.

    Future discussions I’m most looking forward to are Pulp Fiction, Goodfellas, E.T., Star Wars, Cabaret, The Graduate, and Sunset Boulevard.

    Kevin Jacobsen has stated that he is currently taking two weeks off from doing the podcast (the first season just ended with Saving Private Ryan), so I’m sure he’ll be covering those films in the second season.

    Though a couple of the films you’ve mentioned (Howards End and The Right Stuff), I’m not sure if they were the likely runner-ups in their respective years. Leading up to the 1992-93 Oscars, Howards End won the BAFTA for Best Film while The Crying Game won the PGA and WGA. Leading up to the 1983-84 Oscars, The Right Stuff failed to win any of the major precursors while Tender Mercies did manage to win the WGA.

    In the season 2 premiere, Kevin Jacobsen covers L.A. Confidential, which was seen as an early frontrunner going into the 1997-98 Oscar season, all until a little known movie called Titanic came out.
