Since Hollywood is obsessed with reboots, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences decided to reboot “Oscars So White” after a couple years of progress. And while Black Panther broke the superhero glass ceiling last year, the Academy’s love for Joker feels a little retrograde. Still, if you were an actor of color or a female director, chances are you weren’t invited to the Oscar party. After the awards talk, the hosts break down the latest superhero movie trailers — namely, Birds of Prey and the Is-It-In-The-MCU-Or-Not Morbius movie. Then, they attempt to figure out the Doctor Strange director shakeup and why Jessica Henwick was passed over for the role of Rey in Star Wars.
Speaking of Jessica, what’s Nerd Poppin for Dominic is the filming of Matrix 4 in the Bay Area. Meanwhile, Keith has been binge-watching Terrace House on Netflix.
