Welcome back to the IGN Movies Podcast! This week, Jim Vejvoda and Tom Jorgensen are joined by our new Executive Editor of TV, Laura Prudom, to discuss at length what we thought of this year's Oscar nominations

The Shape of Water led the pack with 13 nominations, but this year's nominations also saw a slew of praiseworthy firsts.

We discuss what we thought of the various nominated films, performers, and directors as well was which movies and artists we think were overlooked this year.

We also give our thoughts on those Captain Marvel set photos that revealed Carol Danvers' costume and react to those rumors that Netflix might distribute Cloverfield 3.

Welcome back to the IGN Movies Podcast! This week, Jim Vejvoda, David Griffin, and Tom Jorgensen take a look back at the films that came out on top in 2017 and share their thoughts on the most notable movies coming in 2018.

We discuss the overall box office performance of -- and some of the very heated divisiveness around -- Star Wars: The Last Jedi and what we think that might mean for both Solo: A Star Wars Story and Last Jedi director Rian Johnson's planned new Star Wars trilogy.

And with awards season now upon us -- the Golden Globes are this weekend -- we debate what sort of Oscar chances the likes of Wonder Woman, Get Out and Logan have in light of the nominations they've received from critics and industry groups.

We also weigh in on the news that DC Films is getting a new boss as well as Netflix's critically savaged fantasy film Bright getting a sequel.
