You quite often see magazine articles that proclaim to list the ‘Top 100 Best Films In The World Ever!!!!’, and inevitably it features movies that have only just been released surprisingly high in the list.
These things quite often need time to settle, it is only as films mature over time, as they find an audience, have a knock on impact, resonate over time that their value can truly be appreciated.
And it is this sort of hindsight that the panel over at The Dew Over apply to the Oscars…’for your reconsideration’. Each episode takes a year in Oscar history and decides if the best film decision requires a ‘do over’…or, as the show is named after host Jamie Dew, a ‘dew over’!
The panel of movie bloggers and podcasters talk through the nominated films in turn, discuss what else what released that year that perhaps should have been included in the running, then vote and decide on the new winner.
Despite a reasonably large group of participants the conversation flows well, and although the audio quality could perhaps be a bit better, there isn’t too much talking over each other as can happen in large groups.
So if you’ve ever bristled at the decisions of the Academy (and I’m sure many of you have!), join The Dew Over to right Oscar’s wrongs!
