Season 5 of The Way Too Early Oscar Podcast is under way!. Pop Break film editor (and Rotten Tomatoes Certified Critic) Marisa Carpico and Pop Break senior writer Matt Taylor return to discuss all the potential 2023 Oscar hopefuls.

In this episode Matt and Marisa continue their annual tradition of breaking down every category with a double header. First, it’s Best Production Design — they discuss Babylon’s hedonism, Elvis’s maximalism, and Marisa fixates on the proverbial clay pots of Avatar: The Way of Water. Then they discuss Best Animated Feature — they lament having to watch yet another Pinocchio adaptation, they praise the sweetness of Marcel the Shell with Shoes On and wonder if The Sea Beast was created by AI.

The nominees this year are:

Best Production Design 

All Quiet on the Western Front

Avatar: The Way of Water



The Fabelmans

Best Animated Feature Film 

Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio

Marcel the Shell With Shoes On

Puss in Boots: The Last Wish
