We present the 2021 Awards for the best in film and television over 2020. From the continued explosion of quality content on TV and streaming services (Mandalorian, Ozark, The Boys, Schitt's Creek), to the implosion of mediocrity scattered about, to an overload of film greatness (Tenet, Promising Young Woman, The Trial of the Chicago 7) both at home and in theaters (though this year home theaters became an absolute must-have) – THESE are the only podcast awards you need to listen to!

Sincere and engaging
The hosts have a great rapport with one another. Topics are relevant and lively. Discussions stay on topic and never feel pretentious. No snobbery here, just regular people sharing their views on entertainment.
A little normalcy in a crazy world
I absolutely love this podcast! I can always count on a great discussion about some excellent movie/tv topics. They always make me smile, pretty much every episode. I really enjoy their different views pertaining to film/tv...even the heavy hitting subjects. It’s actually very refreshing to be able to listen to a group of people have fun with a topic and they don’t shove their views down your throat; especially nowadays. Keep up the excellent work!
Don’t Sleep on this Entertainment Podcast
I have been listening to this podcast for about 4 years now and it has consistently been one of my favorites. The movies I watch have become much more diverse because of their recommendations. It’s great to be up to date on new releases on all platforms. The hosts have a true love of film and are able to discuss it in a way that isn’t pretentious like I’ve noticed in other movie podcasts. Aaron has smart interviews that I enjoy, even if I am not familiar with the interviewee. I highly recommend checking this one out.
