▸ As 2019 comes to an end, it means one very exciting thing - awards season is just around the corner! But along with it comes controversies and problems. The Golden Globe nominations inspired a lot of confused looks - especially for the lack of females in the directing category for the second year in a row. (25:36)
▸ Also on the awards front - critical darling ‘Parasite’ got a nod at the SAG awards for best ensemble cast - but why is it the first time an international film has entered the category in 21 years? (28:02)
▸ One of the most exciting things to happen on the entertainment front in 2019 is the launch of Disney+. The new streaming service is packed with film and TV old and new - but Disney has copped a bit of flack after it was discovered certain unsavoury parts of movies have been removed. But should distributors be allowed to re-write history? (30:17)
