The Oscars were last week, so this episode is about all the nominated animated features, which include "Pirates! A Band of Misfits," "Frankenweenie," "Paranorman," "Wreck-It Ralph" and the winner, "Brave." At the time of this recording, the Oscars had not aired, so we had no idea what won. So, you get to hear some of us sound like idiots when we predict the winner incorrectly. There's also an additional recording at the end from your pal, Matthew R. Sinclair. Enjoy!
