The Next Best Picture Podcast – “King Richard”

By Matt Neglia 

This week, Nicole AckmanJosh Parham & Ema Sasic joined our main podcast review to discuss Reinald Marcus Green’s latest film, “King Richard,” starring Will Smith, Aunjanue Ellis, Saniyya Sidney, Demi Singleton, Tony Goldwyn & Jon Bernthal. The film premiered at the Telluride Film Festival, where it started the Oscar train for Will Smith in Best Actor and has only continued to build steam ever since in categories such as Best Supporting Actress for Aunjanue Ellis, Best Supporting Actor for Jon Bernthal, and Best Picture. Now that the film is playing in theaters and streaming on HBO Max, what did we think of this crowd-pleasing sports drama depicting the rise of the Williams sisters in the world of tennis? What did we think of the performances? And how do we feel about the film’s awards chances, especially for Will Smith? We discuss all of these points and more in our review down below. Enjoy!
