Episode 49: Inception w/ Victoria


For our final Oscar Loser pick, we watch Inception with the elusive Victoria! The 2010 film, that lost Best Picture to The King's Speech, introduced the world to the term "inception" and American women to Tom Hardy (and his lips). In this episode, we discuss mustache guards, our new nickname for Cillian Murphy, what we hope wins Best Picture this year, and glam-shaming.

Meet our guest, Victoria!


Longtime friend and unofficial third host Victoria finally joins us on the podcast! You’ve probably heard us mention her…in lots of episodes, actually. You can find her on Twitter and Instagram (also follow her cute polar bear Insta @polarbear_paparazzi!)
