On This Week’s Show: Kevin and Neil are overwhelmed with the impending awards season, feverishly trying to watch all the films at press screenings and on studio-provided DVDs. They know this makes you jealous, but such is the life of illustrious film critics. Kevin declares that the role of Klaatu is perfect for Keanu. Neil refuses to see the family holiday dysfunction film of the week. No one even cares about Delgo and Neil only made it half-way through Slumdog Millionaire. They also weigh in on the recent Golden Globe nominations and declare it officially awesome that Tropic Thunder and In Bruges received a couple nods.
