Widows

Even though Thanksgiving is over, let us give thanks for this wonderful new episode of 'Who Shot Ya?' Drea Clark is back in the building to talk with the crew about Widows. Alonso mourns the loss of 'Irv's Burgers' in West Hollywood. April shares a great Ethan Hawke story. Drea attends a festival for festival planners. And Ricky rejoices at the re-opening of the New Beverly Cinema. Plus, we take a call from the 'Who Shotline.' Alonso almost has a heart attack during the "El Mero Mero De Navidad Christmas Minute.' And as always, staff picks.

In news, Eddie Redmayne admits he gave an "interesting" performance in Jupiter Ascending, General Mills wants to make a Cereal Monsters film franchise, and the Criterion Channel is re-born.

Weekly Movie Recommendations:

Ricky - Mi Familia
Alonso - The Christmas Chronicles
April - Cam
Drea - Shoplifters

We hope all of you are full off of the feast from the previous day! Now we have a FEAST for your earholes! Nnekay will be making Black Friday actually Black, by giving you guys some black owned businesses to do all your holiday shopping with! James has dusted off our friend the Quizlet Korner... this time it's all about the Bubonic Plague... of course there is a twist. But before that we get into what Shanice is up too, other than smiling and liking our smiles, notes about American Son staring Kerry Washington on Broadway, kick ass Viola Davis in Widows, and Marianne Williamson's EPIC 2020 announcement!

These wonder twins sure are cranky! Some might even say Crotchety! Not really, though! They're here to first discuss the Emmy's which neither of them watched- and dive into a deep discussion as to where IS the line between being PC and comedy. Next up, something they both did see: Captain Marvel Trailer. Whew Lawd this looks good! Also was it weird for Vulture Magazine to feature a story about Soon-Yi Previn written by one of Woody Allen's friend? On to the main event- It's QUIZLETTE Time, Back 2 Skool edition. James guides Nnekay through some of the hottest topics including, Violas Davis and The Help, Bi-Pride Parade, Julie Chen... Moonves, Bert and Ernie being lovers, Anita Hill the hero, Cynthia Nixon, and... Helen Keller? Don't forget to check out James at Caroline's on Broadway

Minority Korner 103: A Sexy Belefonte (Race & TV, Netflix, CBS, AMC, The Four Agreements, Don Miguel Ruiz, ShondaLand, Scandal, Ask Minority Korner Anything, Toxic Masculinity)

The team is locked and loaded for another jam packed episode of amazing goodness! Our fearless duo received a listener question so they dusted of that familiar Ask Minority Korner Anything tune and jumped right in. What should one do, when your co workers keep cat calling other women in front of you? James and Nnekay work it out! James tackles a "What You Might Have Miss In the News" by talking about the murder of Giovanni Melton and paying respects to a life gone too soon. In the Korners, Nnekay uncovers the truth about POC representation in TV- mostly focusing on Showrunners and Writers. The statistics might lead to so understanding on why there is such little diversity on TV STILL. James decides to spread a little positive around with a Minority Korner Book Review! The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz is all about how to reclaim your life and ignore many of the outside influences which might invade your thoughts and self perspective. We're still inching towards our 100th review so don't forget to get your review up so we can enter it into the drawing! Also we would like to extend a big THANK YOU to our new editor Tara Dunderdale! Hooray!

Minority Korner 70: We See You Oscars... and We Need to Talk (Political and Commercials of the Oscars, Who Are Actually Winning Awards, Campbell Soup, Paula Abdul, Denzel Washington, Bill Paxton)

Is it really Hooray for Hollywood in this episode of Minority Korner? Yes, James and Nnekay are celebrating the Oscars this week. But first, Why does James always default to the Jurrassic Park Theme? Was it a game changer?!Dive into James' experience filming Soup Meets Sandwich... and JUST how much James loves Campbell's Soup... whereas Nnekay just wants some of that sweet soup money. The duo ponder if starting late in a career is doable and grabs inspiration from Viola Davis, Morgan Freeman, and Julia Childs. ALSO who is this James Arthur singer chap trying to steal OUR James' steez, Nnekay wants to KNOW. We start things off with Nnekay's Korner, this week she's covering the various types of protest pins celebs were sporting, and some of the interesting political statements the commercials from New York Times, Audible, and GE made during the broadcast of the Oscars. In James' Korner he tackles if the oscars have truly moved on from #oscarssowhite. He also question the myth of the liberal media and if Hollywood's standards more open minded than what they portray themselves to be... hint... things aren't as rosy as we me all think. In honor of our new Tidbit Korner, here are some more tidbits from the episode: Bill Paxton, Kerry Washington, Moonlight, La La Land, Mc Scat Cat, Vera Wang and More! Enjoyyyyyyy!!!!!!!

This is a rush edition of Pop Rocket focusing on The Oscars. Guy Branum, Margaret Wappler, Karen Tongson and special guest Chris Schleicher waste no time in dishing on cinema's biggest night. They skip the "all abouts" and jams and get right to the WTF of it all--the best picture debacle, Casey Affleck and Brie Larson, bad hair, bad clapping and Hacksaw Ridge. Plus, we'll get to the bottom of why Margaret Wappler wants to be Taraji P. Henson's eyebrows when she grows up.

Guy Branum explains why he has a problem with standing ovations, and reveals a fact about director Ezra Edelman (OJ Made in America) that blew him away.
Margaret Wappler hearts Natalie Portman's performance in Jackie and, apparently, Taraji P. Henson's eyebrows.
Karen Tongson analyzes the ways Moonlight was successful in moving the lens away from gay white people.
And Chris Schleicher gets all Zapruder film in breaking down the Best Picture fiasco and gives us his theory about Faye Dunaway.

Dive in!
