The Next Best Picture Podcast – “Argo”

By Matt Neglia 

Our 2012 retrospective is officially over. For our final throwback podcast review, we discuss Ben Affleck’s Best Picture-winning film “Argo,” starring himself, Bryan Cranston, Alan Arkin, John Goodman, Scoot McNairy, Victor Garber & Kyle Chandler. Based on a true story, the film blends politics, thrills, and insider Hollywood humor to create a rousing story that captivated audiences and Academy voters, resulting in three Oscar wins, including Best Picture. What do we think of the film ten years later? Join me, Eve O’DeaDan Bayer & ​Danilo Castro as we discuss the film’s writing, comedy, politics, acting, the infamous awards season run (including that famous Ben Affleck snub in Best Director), and more. You can also check out all of our previous 2012 retrospective reviews for “Zero Dark Thirty,” “Skyfall,” “Amour,” “Beasts Of The Southern Wild,” “Django Unchained,” “Silver Linings Playbook,” “Life Of Pi” & “Lincoln” if you have not done so already. Please check out your winners for the 2012 NBP Film Community Awards if you haven’t done so already, and stay tuned for the NBP Team’s winners, which will be revealed on August 21st, 2022. Thank you for all of your support throughout the retrospective. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.
