Batman by the Numbers Podcast: Batman at The Oscars

Check out The Pop Break Today Feed of The Pop Break Podcast Network — on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts and Anchor.

There’s arguably no superhero in existence that has been reimagined, redefined, or reinterpreted more than Batman.  No matter how many times he’s been rebooted, audiences are always willing to come back to Gotham City’s greatest defender.  With so much Bat content out there, there’s plenty to dissect, analyze, and of course, rank!  This podcast is dedicated to a surgical evaluation of Batman’s history, with a focus on ranking several topics in the world of Batman, among other classic Bat themes and characters.

Join host Daniel Cohen, Pop Break’s former Film Editor and Resident Bat-Maven, as he brings on several guests every month to share his passion for the one and only Dark Knight.  From Adam West to Robert Pattinson, no bat stone will be left unturned.  Bottom-line: If you’re a Batman fan, this is required listening.

And the Oscar goes to…Batman…sometimes.  On this episode, Daniel combines two of his favorite topics: Batman and the Oscars.  Along with this week’s co-host, Editor-in-Chief of the Pop Break, Bill Bodkin, the two delve into Batman’s history at the Oscars.

On the heels of this year’s ceremony, the two get into all the nitty-gritty when it comes to Batman movies and their success rate at the Academy Awards.  When compared to other comic book films, Batman has had a very solid track record, but we all know it should have been better, right?

The two waste no time getting into what is considered one of the biggest snubs in Oscar history – no Best Picture nomination for The Dark Knight.  They recount how they reacted when they first found out, the ramifications it had on the Oscars, and much more!

Would Jack Nicholson have gotten an Oscar nomination for Batman ’89 today?  Will Joker: Folie á Deux have similar awards success two years from now?  Will a Batman movie ever win Best Picture?

All is discussed as we go through Batman’s entire history at the Oscars!  A must listen to episode for all Batman and Oscar fanatics!

Speaking of Batman, If Daniel was sprayed by Scarecrow's fear toxin, it would be watching Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen on a non-stop loop.
