Join Mandy Kaplan, Steve Sarmento, and Pete Wright for today’s award season SatMat!

That’s right, the SAG awards have dropped and we have some opinions. But then we get lost in dishing on Leto’s performance in that Gucci thing and things come off the rails. Don’t worry though, we do manage to bring it back around to aging on film thanks to Carrie Bradshaw and crew vis the Golden Girls. Don’t worry, we’re not the only one’s talking about it. The Today Show is, too. Finally, Apple TV+ is moving into Kong with a series follow-up to the last Kong film and it’s a mixed bag.


Of course, we’re hobbled in our journey through movies with the best monsters since Rob, of course, made sure that our creatures had to be anti-sapien. Alas, we bring Best Non-Human Animal/Creature.
