A quick shout-out to the guy who designed the Golden Brick Award icon (above). Greg also provides the wonderfully witty illustrations for our Marathon Awards. (Check out this one he did for the Luis Bunuel Marathon. Or this one for the Elaine May Marathon.) I keep waiting for him to get a New Yorker cover.
This week's show marks the start of the famed Golden Brick Award Season, when Brick hopefuls woo us with lavish gifts and screening parties in hopes of claiming the coveted prize at our Live Year-End Wrap Party in January. (Yes, the live show is happening! More details coming soon, but pencil Jan. 11 into your calendars.)
From Steve McQueen's WIDOWS, that's Oscar-winner Viola Davis on the left, the yes really 6'3" Elizabeth Debicki on the right, and, with her back to you, Cynthia Erivo. Wait, you mean Tony-winner Cynthia Erivo? The one who can sing like this?
Yes, that one.
Erivo didn't come up much in last week's WIDOWS review, but it was the movie's performances that inspired the most heated debate between Adam and Josh. Like how about this exchange:
In the case of Debicki, this is a woman who flips and flops between being somewhat ditzy to being a con-woman.
Talking over each other.
I think she has the clearest trajectory in the film.
To being quick on her feet.
She's got the best trajectory in the film. Josh
No. No, no.
Oh, man, it must have been like Ali and Frazier in that soundproof studio. And all that conflict made for a nice warmup to Massacre Theatre, which features maybe my favorite Josh performance of all time. #sheDOESthough
