The arrival of Christmas and the upcoming turn of the calendar to a new year puts the Cinephile Hissy Fit podcast, sponsored and supported by the Ruminations Radio Network, knee-deep in the annual “awards season.” Look for the podcast show to start covering many of the top Oscar contenders throughout the slower film months of January and February as we march towards the 94th Academy Awards held in March of 2022. Things are about to get snobby! For their 41st episode, 25YL film critics, shillelagh-wielding dads, and lucky school teachers Will Johnson and Don Shanahan start this awards season getting their Irish on. First up is the well-received Belfast, writer-director Kenneth Branagh’s love letter to his departed childhood tainted by The Troubles of the Northern Ireland capital. The prolific actor and filmmaker has a pair of fans here from the Cinephile Hissy Fit rooting for his movie. Pour a pint and share in this spirited discussion!
