Best Pick is the newest podcast from The Spontaneity Shop (Guilty Feminist, Global Pillage, GrownUpLand).
John Dorney, Jessica Regan and Tom Salinsky are film fans. Big film fans. They’ve taken every film which has won Best Picture at the Academy Awards, put them in a hat, and for each episode, they pick one out at random and then discuss it, watch it and review it. You’ll learn about the Oscar ceremony that year, the trends in filmmaking and how this film got made. And for this exciting live episode, you’ll get to watch the movie along with us.
Your ticket for the recording includes watching Alfred Hitchock’s classic thriller from 1940, Rebecca, which earned eleven Oscar nominations but only won for Best Cinematography as well as Best Picture. To find out why, what was left on the cutting room floor, and just who beat Katharine Hepburn and Joan Fontaine to Best Actress, come to the live recording and join us and the master of suspense himself.
