32 - And The Winner Is… La La Land? With Special Guest Damien Chazelle!Minhdzuy and Omar wake up in another giant library, but something seems amiss. After naming all six human senses and all twenty-five human emotions, they realize that the library is almost exactly the same as the library they’d just seen. For some reason, this prompts them to criticize David Ayers’ direction in Suicide Squad, as well as Jared Leto’s performance as the Joker. That leads them to wonder why Peter Jackson shot an extra movie while shooting The Hobbit. Why was it so long? Why was GI Joe so underrated? And how does French Stewart keep making his way into movie sequels? Plus, are Minhdzuy and Omar related? His Grandma is Annie Oakley and Minhdzuy’s Grandpa is Tyler Oakley! After going outside, they interview one of the local people, who happens to be holding an Oscar, and it’s 2017’s Best Director, Damien Chazelle! But it doesn’t stop there! It turns out that Minhdzuy and Omar are in a universe where La La Land won the Oscar for Best Picture after a snafu with some envelopes led Suicide Squad to have been temporarily named Best Picture! And Minhdzuy makes a plea for people to stop needlessly hating Anne Hathaway. Omar reminds everyone of Natalie Portman’s stellar acting in Star Wars Episode 1, and then quickly plugs This American Life’s app, Shortcut. Also a heptapod from Arrival shows up and Minhdzuy speaks to it. And then Ryan Reynolds talks to them too. There are a bunch of celebrities in this episode.
