Good Guests But Tom O'Neil Is Painfully Banal

There’s a dearth of Oscars podcasts out there, so those seeking an aural awards fix are limited to a handful of options. I’ll forgive the audio quality on this as it seems like Google Hangout is the best the site can do on their budget. And the guests they invite are great, basically all of the major players in Oscar punditry.

The podcasts’s major flaw is unfortunately its omnipresent host Tom O’Neil. While his guests offer thoughtful commentary, this past season, Tom sounded like a mindless broken record. How many times did we need to hear about how Christoph Waltz has “won everything he’s been nominated for?” Or how De Niro can’t win because he hasn’t won anything thus far? Or how the “steak eaters” are going to vote for the “hot babe”? Or how Oscars “loves little girls”? Or how Braveheart was the first movie that year to send out VHS screeners? It’s just endless regurgitation of these same little factoids over and over, spouted as if they were engaging thoughtful commentary. I hope he doesn't find solace in the fact that he was right about some of these; it doesn't matter if you arrive at the right answer if you did so in the horribly wrong way.

I get that he’s at a disadvantage when he’s on every show and his guests just have their half hour to give us their take. But believe me that Film Experience and In Contention are able to sound fresh week after week in spite of the same voices returning. Tom needs to take a break, find a new host to take over duties most of the time, and just show up once in a while.
