This week we barely scratch the surface on a topic very close to Bryan’s heart: Theatre. Join us as Eric, Bryan, and Special Guest Kaila Prins explore the fascinating history of one of the world’s most dynamic artforms. Listen, subscribe, and follow us on Facebook, or Twitter @Nerdonomy!
Some members of our fantastic Nerdonomy team, namely Sarah and Sean, came up with some brilliant ideas of celebrating some great actors and directors by turning their film career into a viewing marathon! To make matters even more heavenly, they found a way to add the actor/director’s name into the name of a month, which dictated when the marathon would happen. Sarah came up with Mel Brooks-uary (January) and Sean came up with Denzel March-ington (March). I recently came up with a marathon idea of my own and as the title spoils, I am going to start a tradition of James NovemBond!
Last week, my NoF cohost Bryan and I went to see Amour. If you’re not already aware (for shame, reader), this is one of the big nominees for this year’s Academy Awards. It’s going up for Best Actress, Best Director, Best Foreign Language Film, Best Original Screenplay, and Best Picture. It already won Best Foreign Language Film for the Golden Globes this year. That in itself is reason to consider seeing this movie, even if you aren’t a fan of foreign film.
