Not Her Again is the movie podcast where we look at those Oscar years where Meryl Streep was nominated for an Oscar… but went home emptyhanded. All 17 of them (and counting? Probably? Who knows?). Looking at Meryl’s record number of losses will take us from Hollywood in the late ’70s to today, and we’ll see how things have changed, how things haven’t, who should have won, what films were overlooked or overpraised, and why this woman’s attendance is damn near perfect when she loses 85 percent of the time.

Rank #1: 2013: Meryl Has Mouth Cancer, Get It?

Podcast cover
Read more

A beloved, prize-winning play adapted into a feature film? What could possibly go wrong? Apparently, a whole lot. Meryl landed a record-breaking 18th nomination for her role as a verbally abusive matriarch in the severely underwhelming August: Osage County. But the night belonged to 12 Years a Slave, which took home Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Supporting Actress for Lupita Nyong’o. Join us as we discuss Jennifer Lawrence’s scene-stealing in American Hustle, Scarlett Johansson’s nomination-worthy work in Her, and a brief history of the world’s most retweeted tweets.

Rank #2: 2009: Bon Appetit with Meryl Streep

Podcast cover
Read more

Meryl was inching ever closer to a third Oscar in 2009, when she appeared in Nora Ephron’s Julie & Julia as famed chef and Definitely Not a Spy Julia Child. Streep would go on to lose the Oscar to Sandra Bullock’s performance as a woman who wears a wig and is Definitely Not a Racist in The Blind Side. Elsewhere, Mo’Nique was making waves as an abusive mother in Precious, Christoph Waltz’s schtick was brand new in Inglourious Basterds, and Kathryn Bigelow was about to make history as the first female director to ever win Best Director at the Oscars. Join us as we discuss the drama surrounding the documentary shorts, James Cameron’s aggressive campaigning for Avatar, and the underappreciated A Serious Man.

On the second episode of our Julia Roberts season, we're focusing entirely on Pretty Woman. Even 28 years later, it's the role Roberts is most identified with. Join us as we discuss her first pairing with Richard Gere, the insane amount of money this movie made, and why "Annie" is the worst Broadway musical of all time.

Rank #4: Julia Roberts: Valentine's Day & Mother's Day

Podcast cover
Read more

In 2010, studios weren't sure if audiences would flock to see rom-coms the way they had in the '80s and '90s. In order to lure people in, more and more big-name stars were cast in a single film. In Valentine's Day, Julia Roberts plays opposite Bradley Cooper in an ensemble that has everyone from Shirley MacLaine to Taylor Swift. In the less-crowded Mother's Day, Julia's co-stars include Jennifer Aniston, Jason Sudeikis, and arguably Kate Hudson (who is basically in a different movie).

Join us as we discuss Julia's reteaming with Garry Marshall, why the movie industry doesn't deserve Anne Hathaway, and whether anyone can name a single recent Kate Hudson film.

Rank #5: Julia Roberts: Stepmom & Erin Brockovich

Podcast cover
Read more

In the late '90s, Julia needed to mix it up. Her romantic comedies were box office juggernauts, but she needed something more. After all, she didn't get into acting to pretend to love Dermot Mulroney. She needed an Oscar. 

Stepmom was not the film that would help Julia achieve her goal, but it got her on the path to Oscar glory. It also acclimated audiences to the idea that Julia could convincingly play a mother. In 2000, Julia landed her Oscar vehicle: Erin Brockovich, the true story of a hard-working legal assistant trying to take down a corporation for polluting the water. Big speeches! Female empowerment! A background role for Aaron Eckhart! Erin Brockovich had it all, and in March 2001, Julia marched up the steps of the Shrine Auditorium to collect her Oscar. 

Join us as we discuss Julia's chemistry with Ed Harris, whether Stepmom would be better if it were about lesbians, and the much-debated Roberts v. Burstyn Oscar showdown.

We're just a podcast, illuminating your screen, asking you to download us. 

After some mixed success with dramas, Julia Roberts returned to the rom-com with a vengeance. My Best Friend's Wedding, Notting Hill & Runaway Bride made nearly $1 billion worldwide as audiences flocked to see Roberts reprising the persona that made her a star in Pretty Woman. Join us as we discuss Dermot Mulroney's side hustle as an accomplished cellist, our love for Hugh Grant, and Chris Meloni's pre-SVU summer blockbuster.

Rank #7: Katharine Hepburn: The Philadelphia Story

Podcast cover
Read more

It was the battle of the faux Philadelphians with Katharine Hepburn in The Philadelphia Story and Ginger Rogers in Kitty Foyle. Why were the 13th Academy Awards so dominated by America's third-most prominent second city? Why is Ginger Rogers talking like that? And why was Joan Fontaine's mother so passive aggressive? 

Well, we might not have all the answers, but we have plenty of theories. Join Michael (@mjdomanico) and Walter (@walthickey) as we dive into all of the Philadelphianess of 1940.

Rank #10: Katharine Hepburn: Morning Glory

Podcast cover

New theme music, same us. This season we're covering the career of Katharine Hepburn, considered one of the twentieth century's acting legends. We'll be looking back on Hepburn's twelve Oscar nominations, and today we're starting with her first nomination, for 1933's Morning Glory. Hepburn won the Oscar but, in typical Hepburn fashion, was not around to accept. That would happen three more times.

Join Michael (@mjdomanico) and Walter (@walthickey) as they talk about Kate, why Kate and co-star Adolphe Menjou couldn't stand each other, and why Cavalcade is the most entertaining movie you've never seen.

You can't win 'em all. Katharine Hepburn got a quick follow-up Oscar nomination after her first win, but this time she lost to Bette Davis in 1935's Dangerous, a film with a name so vague it's impossible to discern what it's about. As an added incentive to listen: across three seasons of this podcast, this episode contains my favorite Oscar trivia I've ever come across.

We're diving into all things Dangerous and Alice Adams, so kick back and enjoy an incredibly sweaty dinner with Michael (@mjdomanico) and Walter (@walthickey), won't you?

Rank #18: Julia Roberts: Duplicity & Eat Pray Love

Podcast cover
Read more

Julia returned to leading roles with two back-to-back movies. First, she reteamed with Clive Owen for 2009's espionage rom-com Duplicity. She followed that up with 2010's Eat Pray Love, based on the stupidly successful memoir by Elizabeth Gilbert. After years of smaller parts and roles in ensemble movies, Julia was back as the leading lady — but how did audiences and critics respond?

Join us as we discuss Duplicity's confusing time jumps, whether Julia actually touched that elephant in Eat Pray Love, and why Liz Gilbert chose to go to Italy, India, and Indonesia. (Hint: you're not gonna love the answer!)

Rank #19: Julia Roberts: Charlie Wilson's War & Larry Crowne

Podcast cover
Read more

After a few years off the big screen, Julia teamed up with Tom Hanks for Charlie Wilson's War. Though a small part, Julia plays a key historical figure who swears she "did not make al-Qaeda." Charlie Wilson's War also ended up being director Mike Nichols' last film. A few years later, Roberts teamed up with Hanks again in Larry Crowne, the world's most aggressively pleasant movie. 

Join us as we discuss whether Taraji P. Henson deserved a bigger part in Larry Crowne, why Lady Gaga should begin shifting to Stefani Germanotta in her acting roles, and why Charlie Wilson's War lost all five Golden Globes for which it was nominated.

Rank #20: Julia Roberts: Confessions, Mona Lisa Smile & Closer

Podcast cover
Read more

After her Oscar win, Julia slowed down a bit. In addition to the first Ocean's movie, she took a small, scene-stealing part in pal George Clooney's Confessions of a Dangerous Mind. But she was clamoring for another go at Oscar glory, so she went the route all respected actors must go at one point or another: an unorthodox teacher whose most important lessons happen outside the classroom. In Mona Lisa Smile, Roberts plays an art history professor who opens the eyes of her students and then, in an emotionally resonant ending... leaves for Europe? 

Either which way, she earned $25 million for the part, awards be damned. She followed it up with Mike Nichols' Closer, featuring an ensemble cast of Jude Law, Natalie Portman, and Clive Owen. Join us as we discuss To Sir With Love, whether Helsinki is a romantic getaway, and some of Wellesley's more conservative traditions.
