59 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: Long Day's Journey Into Night

    Katharine Hepburn: Long Day's Journey Into Night

    Today, we're diving into an Oscar race that is so fraught with history that an entire episode of Ryan Murphy's Feud was dedicated to it. It's the 1962 race featuring Katharine Hepburn in Long Day's Journey Into Night vs. Anne Bancroft in The Miracle Worker. Oh, and Bette Davis was nominated for What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? 
    Join Michael (@mjdomanico) and Walter (@walthickey) as we break down the American canon, Patty Duke's thoughts on The Miracle Worker, and whether Joan Crawford had successfully contacted Hepburn to accept the Oscar on her behalf.

    For The Record: Bonus Episode

    For The Record: Bonus Episode

    Emergency podcast alert: Framing Britney Spears dropped last week, and as a lifelong Britney fan, I had to talk to someone about it. So I called up my sister Laura, a true Britney disciple, to do a deep dive. We talk about the documentary, Britney's enduring appeal, what the #FreeBritney movement gets right, and also what we think it gets wrong. If you want a supplement to Framing Britney Spears, then you're in the right place. 
    We'll be back soon with a normal episode on Katharine Hepburn (already recorded!), but for now, enjoy this brief diversion. 
    Fun fact: both of us saved all of our thoughts for the podcast, and right before recording we both said we had learned exactly two things from the doc. Those ended up being the same two things. Listen to find out what we, as Britney scholars, learned.

    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.

Thanks Laura and Michael

Thank you both for this amazing and informative podcast! Your knowledge and passion for Britney is infectious. I have already added a bunch of Brittney to my playlist, will certainly listen to the 2007 Blackout album again, and am now subscribing to this pod moving forward.

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.
