57 episodes

Not Her Again is the movie podcast where we look at those Oscar years where Meryl Streep was nominated for an Oscar… but went home emptyhanded. All 17 of them (and counting? Probably? Who knows?).

Looking at Meryl’s record number of losses will take us from Hollywood in the late ’70s to today, and we’ll see how things have changed, how things haven’t, who should have won, what films were overlooked or overpraised, and why this woman’s attendance is damn near perfect when she loses 85 percent of the time.

    Katharine Hepburn: Suddenly, Last Summer

    Katharine Hepburn: Suddenly, Last Summer

    Katharine Hepburn. Elizabeth Taylor. Montgomery Clift. 1959's Suddenly, Last Summer is a star-studded adaptation of a Tennessee Williams play that touches on everything from homosexuality to insanity to cannibalism. It's a pretty wild ride. 
    Join Michael (@mjdomanico) and special guest Matt Erspamer (@erspamer_matt) as they discuss Katharine Hepburn as an ultra-rich Southern widow, how this film got past the censors, and some of the women who didn't make it into the Best Actress race that year.

    Katharine Hepburn: The Rainmaker

    Katharine Hepburn: The Rainmaker

    Sorry for the absence — we were going across towns in the American Midwest trying to sell folks a drum that will produce rain. If that sounds up your alley, boy do we have an episode for you. Katharine Hepburn was nominated for Best Actress for her role in 1956's The Rainmaker, but she ultimately lost to Ingrid Bergman, whose portrayal of a would-be royal is deeply... not good? 
    Join Michael (@mjdomanico) and Walt (@walthickey) as we discuss reading The Rainmaker as a trans text, whether boxers play "matches" or "games," and why Deborah Kerr never won an Oscar.

    Katharine Hepburn: Summertime

    Katharine Hepburn: Summertime

    We're deep in the spinster phase of Katharine Hepburn's career at this point. Hot off the heels of her work in 1951's The African Queen, Hepburn was back in a major way in David Lean's Summertime, a quiet masterpiece about a woman who goes on a trip to Venice and finds love, or something like it, along the way. 
    Join Michael (@mjdomanico) and special guest Caden Mark Gardner (on Instagram as @corpsesfoolsandmonsters) as they discuss Hepburn's performance, her loss to Anna Magnani at the Oscars, and Burt Lancaster's body of work.

    Katharine Hepburn: The African Queen

    Katharine Hepburn: The African Queen

    Two women who skyrocketed to fame in the 1930s are back in the mix at the 24th Academy Awards. Katharine Hepburn starred alongside Humphrey Bogart in the action-adventure movie The African Queen, while Vivien Leigh was back with the film adaptation of Tennessee Williams' A Streetcar Named Desire.
    Join Michael (@mjdomanico) and Walter (@walthickey) as they discuss how Humphrey Bogart avoided falling ill on location, the trouble with adapting a play for the big screen, and Marlon Brando's Brandoness.

    Katharine Hepburn: Woman of the Year

    Katharine Hepburn: Woman of the Year

    It's Woman of the Year and Mrs. Miniver this week on Not Her Again! One of these movies came out in early 1942, and the other at the end of the year — you can probably guess which is which based on the plots of the movies. 
    Join Michael (@mjdomanico) and Walter (@walthickey) as we talk about the first Hepburn-Tracy pairing, Greer Garson's marriage to her on-screen son, and why a famous speech from Mrs. Miniver was printed out on leaflets and dropped over German-occupied territories during the war.

    Katharine Hepburn: The Philadelphia Story

    Katharine Hepburn: The Philadelphia Story

    It was the battle of the faux Philadelphians with Katharine Hepburn in The Philadelphia Story and Ginger Rogers in Kitty Foyle. Why were the 13th Academy Awards so dominated by America's third-most prominent second city? Why is Ginger Rogers talking like that? And why was Joan Fontaine's mother so passive aggressive? 
    Well, we might not have all the answers, but we have plenty of theories. Join Michael (@mjdomanico) and Walter (@walthickey) as we dive into all of the Philadelphianess of 1940.

Delightful

This is a great concept and it totally works. Such an enjoyable listen. Love, love, love this pod.

Step away from the mic when laughing

Great topic but I had to stop listening because of the host’s constant, deliberate scream of a laugh (example: Devil Wears Prada, 09:15) director into the mic makes me wince.

Get rid of Walt

Walt Hickey is unbearable. Smug, uninformed and condescending.

Michael is the only saving grace.
