Taika Waititi’s Jojo Rabbit won the People’s Choice Award at the Toronto International Film Festival. That prize, which went to Green Book last year, is a solid indicator that Jojo is a major Oscar contender.
With the festival wrapped up and the fall movie season getting underway, Lainey Lui (one of my favourite people in the world) joins me to breakdown Jojo and the other awards season contenders that premiered at TIFF.
You know Lainey from CTV’s ETalk and The Social, as well as her blog Lainey Gossip. You might have also caught us together on CTV’s Your Morning, kicking knowledge on the Golden Globes and the Oscars.
In this podcast, we get into Hustlers, Joker, Just Mercy, Knives Out, Marriage Story, Parasite and Uncut Gems, figuring out where we fall on some of this year’s divisive films. Enjoy and remember to follow Lainey Lui on Twitter and Instagram at @LaineyGossip.
P.S. I forgot to hit record when we got started, so please excuse the abrupt introduction.
