It’s another episode of It Is What It Is, and B.C. is announcing the Jeebus Awards Nominations!
Kathryn Bigelow has reentered the awards season with Detroit; offering the best ensemble cast you’ll see all year (both big name and soon to be breakout stars) Bigelow puts us in the murkier throes of the 1967 Detroit Riots by resurfacing some of its buried horrors. In the Algiers Motel incident three black teenage boys were slain by the hand of their protectors. One murder was left unsolved and the others were ruled “Justifiable Homicide” allowing all involved cops to walk unconvicted.
Judson & Collin are here to contradict everything they said about the Oscars last week as they examine the legacy of The Artist and discuss Charlie Chaplin's City Lights and how it gave the silent film industry a small boom before the talkies took complete control of Hollywood. They also briefly discuss HBO's Girls and give a shoutout to the gentlemen of the Atlantic Screen Connection.
