Episode 004: 2019 Oscar Nominations
It's Hollywood's biggest morning, if you're into that kind of thing. Alonso and Christy break down all of the Academy Award nominations, both the ones we're excited about and the ones we would've liked to have seen. "The Favourite" and "Roma" led all nominees with 10 apiece, which we were delighted to see, but then there were many egregious oversights including "Burning" in the foreign language category and Ethan Hawke in the best actor category for "First Reformed." We also very briefly dip our toe into the muck of the Razzie Award nominations. Listen and enjoy, and let us know what you're happy about and what you wish had been included.

Episode 003: Glass, Replicas, Fyre Festival, True Detective S3 E1
It's a veritable smorgasbord of reviews on the latest Breakfast All Day Podcast: new stuff, catch-up stuff, streaming stuff. And hey, lookie here! We're back to discussing television, by popular demand. This week, Alonso, Matt and Christy review M. Night Shyamalan's third piece in his "Unbreakable"-"Split" trilogy, "Glass," and we play catch-up with the Keanu Reeves sci-fi thriller "Replicas," which wasn't shown to critics last week but was so batshit crazy, we'd be remiss if we ignored it. We also ponder the fact that not one but two documentaries on the notoriously failed Fyre Festival have come out within days of each other: "Fyre Fraud" on Hulu and "Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened" on Netflix. And since so many of you asked for it, we're dipping our toe back into television with a review of the first episode of the new season of "True Detective," starring Mahershala Ali. Enjoy, and be sure to come back on Tuesday when we'll discuss Oscar nominations.

Episode 002: The Upside, A Dog's Way Home, Bird Box, Golden Globes
That sound you hear is January movies slowly trying to kill us. This week on Breakfast All Day, Alonso, Matt and Christy review the painfully feel-good comedy “The Upside” and the shamelessly heart-tugging drama “A Dog’s Way Home.” We also play catch-up with “Bird Box” on Netflix and try to figure out what all the fuss is about. And there’s a ton of movie news to cover, including the baffling Golden Globe winners, who will host the Academy Awards next month, John Lasseter’s new gig after his ouster from Pixar, and some revelations that could hurt awards chances for “Green Book.” We’re so happy to see you again and we hope you’re happy to see (and hear us) again, too.

Episode 001: Best/Worst of 2018, Holmes & Watson, Escape Room, Kevin Hart
Good morning to you, whatever time of day it is in your world. Alonso, Matt, Ben and I are excited to introduce you to our new incarnation, the Breakfast All Day Podcast. It’s still the four of us (whenever we can arrange our schedules to get in the same room with each other), reviewing films, occasionally discussing movie news and enjoying the same banter we’ve had for the past nine years. For our first episode of the new year, we look back at the best and worst of the old year. We also play catch-up with the Will Ferrell & John C. Reilly comedy “Holmes & Watson,” which Alonso says is terrible, and “Escape Room,” which is shockingly a lot of fun for a January horror movie. And we squeeze in a bit of movie news as Ellen DeGeneres lobbies for Kevin Hart to get his Oscar hosting gig back.
So thanks again for sticking with us. We’ll keep doing this throughout 2019 and beyond, and we’ll be adding more features as we go along. You can find us on social media here:
Endless thanks and hash browns to Graham Kolbeins for designing our new logo.
