SSNPod #237 | With Great Wokeness Comes Great Responsibility | #saysomethingnew

Between the Oscar nominations and the Grammy Awards, it seems like everyone is trying to get a miniature golden statuette. However, despite some history-making Oscar nominations from people like Mary J. Blige and Jordan Peele, not everyone who may have deserved it got invited to the Academy’s slumber party this year. The SSN Crew discusses the nominees for the 90th Academy Awards – and those snubbed from that list, Sony pushing “Super Fly” through production at light speed, the new Netflix series “The End of the F***ing World,” and our “Riverdale” buddy Jughead Jones becoming a textbook example of what happened when freshly minted white wokeness goes wrong.
