Episode 221: [Something About the Emmys]

Heading into this week’s episode, we had no content and things looked bleak when a shining statue descending from the heavens and nominated a bunch of actors, directors, writers, production people, etc., for awards. So I guess let’s talk about that forever. It’s the annual Emmy nominations episode right here, on Zero Credit(s).

Supplemental Reading: Godzilla (2014)

In 2014, a studio had an idea. What if we acquired the film rights to Godzilla from Toho Studios to make some American-ized Godzilla films for the modern day? Everyone was aghast. Nothing like this had ever been attempted since the Mathew Broderick 1999 version that tanked so hard, Toho Studios dusted off their cameras to film Godzilla 2000 in response. But for some reason, Toho Studios agreed to a three film deal (or until 2020, whichever happened first) with WB and thus here we are. Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Olsen, and a male version of Anya Taylor-Joy (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) come together to bring the Big Green Mother of Three to the screen along with Ken Watanabe and the lady from The Shape of Water. Directed by Visual Effects Artist Gareth Edwards (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), this 2014 film hits all of the notes of a classic Godzilla movie, but where does it rank on the just introduced WB Monsterverse Power Rankings? There’s only one way to find out and that’s by listening to this, the inaugural kickoff of the Summer of Godzilla (in Spring).
