Hi everybody, Like many here, I've been following the #OscarsSoWhite controversy of the last couple of years with some interest. I've found the debate more interesting than most of the movies made by Hollywood today (I hope that nobody makes a Biopic on this, although I bet somebody will and it will be Oscar bait). Anyway, I find most movies today to be so boring that I've gone back and purged on the classics. To justify this, I've started a Podcast series called The Tawfik Zone's Alternative Oscars. Even though the films back then were usually better, I've found that I still stray from The Oscars' choices (hence the Alternative Oscars bit). Admittedly, our podcast is still a bit rough as we're still figuring out our rhythm, but I thought I'd go ahead and share our first two episodes: 1950 - http://tawfikzone.com/2015/10/16/podcast-alternative-oscars-episode-1-1950/ 1951 - http://tawfikzone.com/2015/12/19/podcast-alternative-oscars-episode-2-1951/ What did you think of the Best Picture nominees of those years? What do you think of our Alternative Nominees? What would be your lineup for Alternative Oscars for the 1950 and 51 cycles? Is there anything we can do to improve our discussion? Any constructive feedback is appreciated. I hope you'll stay tuned for our 1952 entry which we aim to do mid- to late- February. Thanks, Adam
