Netflix's "The Trial of the Chicago 7," the PlayStation 5 Launch, and Fantasy Movie Awards Season League Draft 3: The Rubber Match
One silver lining for 2020? Basically all of the Academy Award contenders are (or will soon be) streaming on a OTT device near you. It's been a weird year and the movie awards business has been feeling the weirdness right along with the rest of us. But where the accessibility of award-bait cinema prior to movie awards season is generally pretty spotty in typical years, the shuttering of movie theaters and forced prominence of streaming services in 2020 has led to "Oscar bait" being more accessible to the general public than ever before. Taking advantage of that, Fanboy and Know-It-All are taking it upon themselves to begin working their way through potential contenders for the biggest and brightest movie awards (you know, like the SAG Awards and the BAFTA and the Academy Awards and...) beginning with Netflix's "The Trial of the Chicago 7." They also dive into the third annual Pop Culture with Fanboy and Know-It-All Fantasy Movie Awards Season League Draft. With Fanboy having captured the league crown in year one and Know-It-All doing so in year two, Year Three is already promising to be contentious as rule changes are suggested and rammed through the rules committee on the fly immediately following the draft. Thanks a lot, 2020. (Oh, yeah, did any of you score a PlayStation 5 via preorder or on launch day? Because one of us did.)("April Showers" by ProleteR is licensed under a Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives [aka Music Sharing] 3.0 International License.)
