And the Losers Are

And the Losers Are Podcast

'And the Losers Are' is a podcast where three failing screenwriters discuss Oscar nominated and prominent films, while drinking enough alcohol to make this seem like a good idea. Each season takes a look at a decade of film. In each episode we discuss each year's Best Picture nominees, as well as five movies that didn't quite make it, before deciding our winners and losers. If films, political incorrectness, foul humor, and excessive drinking is your thing, this is the podcast for you.
