Technically Pop, “2020 in Film”

Amanda Seyfried, as Marion Davies in Mank, sits at a party in formal dress. Sheis holding a martini and has a wry smile on her face.

This week on Technically Pop, we prep for the Oscars by discussing the movies that came out in 2020 and the movies we watched in 2020. Alexandra Edwards tells us why she was so disappointed by David Fincher’s Mank, Eric Lewis talks about watching and re-watching Emma., and Josh Cohen wonders why it took a pandemic for the Academy to recognize performances by Black actors.

Then, we discuss why watching directors’ full filmographies was comforting during the pandemic and discuss a few films that might entice us back into movie theaters in 2021.



Listen to the rest of Technically Pop’s Spring 2021 miniseries here: Part 1–Bridgerton, Part 2–Disney+, and Part 4–Normal People and Ireland in Film and TV
