For the final episode of the year, we look back at the year in film and the wacky Oscar race that has resulted. Plus, a conversation with Elizabeth Banks, star of Love and Mercy and the final Hunger Games movie as well as director of Pitch Perfect 2. Finally, we check in on the state of the extremely competitive best actress race.

Adam McKay, director of The Big Short and a fellow podcaster, joins us to talk about the sense of anger— but also humor— that led him to make the financial crisis film The Big Short, and why he absolutely had to bring in Anthony Bourdain to help him do it. From there we’re joined by Vanity Fair’s executive West Coast editor Krista Smith to dig into Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight, which is just one of two movies this Christmas about men killing each other in the snow. Finally we go big before we go home and weigh on whether Leonardo DiCaprio is a lock to win the best actor category.

From there we talk to Jennifer Jason Leigh, a Golden Globe nominee for her role in Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight and one of the three voice actors in Charlie Kaufman’s Anomalisa. Finally we make our predictions for who will win best cinematography— and can Emmanuel Lubezki make history?
