For this year’s Oscar off-season, we are taking a look back on the 2015 film year which was right before Next Best Picture launched. We asked the NBP Film Community to vote on 5 films nominated for Best Picture and 5 films nominated for Oscars other than Best Picture from that year to be reviewed on the podcast, exclusively for our Patreon subscribers. We already reviewed “Brooklyn,” “Sicario” and “Ex Machina,” now, we are reviewing one of the most emotionally powerful films we’ve ever seen, “Room.”
Starring Brie Larson, Jacob Tremblay, Joan Allen & William H. Macy, “Room” was a huge critical hit for studio A24, nabbing Brie Larson an Oscar for Best Actress and landing an additional 3 nominations including Best Picture. What does the team think of the film, its awards season run and more? Join DeAnn Knighton, Casey Lee Clark, Josh Parham, Patreon supporters Cheyne Nomura, Daniel Brilliant and myself as we take a look back on one of 2015’s finest.
