Hollywood's biggest night is set for February 28th, live at 7 PM EST on ABC. In the wake of the nominations last Thursday, the biggest news is just how many people were NOT nominated, and how white all of the nominees are. Spike Lee and Jada Pinkett Smith have already boycotted this year's show, but what is the deeper issue here? The Epic Film Guys discuss #OscarsSoWhite and all of this year's nominees. The 88th Academy Awards are only five weeks away from today! See the full list of nominees at http://oscar.go.com/nominees.
This week in our Epic Previews segment, we'll be dissecting that beautiful 10 Cloverfield Lane trailer that came out of nowhere starring John Goodman and Mary Elizabeth Winstead. We're also reviewing the hotly anticipated Suicide Squad trailer, which dropped tonight as part of the CW's Dawn of the Justice League special! We'll have our full and immediate reaction to the CW special, including our first look at footage from Wonder Woman. We also got some glimpses at what the Flash and Cyborg will look like in the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and some new footage from the March blockbuster. We'll have our full rundown of the entire special here for you tonight!
A new month is fast-approaching with February, and we're announcing our Best Picture Challenge! During the month of February, your challenge is to watch ten Best Picture winners that you have not seen before and let us know what you thought! We'll be posting everyone's entire lists up on our site over at epicfilmguys.wordpress.com. We're also going to touch on our Just 90s January challenge and look ahead at the next two months!
