On this week’s show we’re reacting to all the recent film awards nominations for Dune: Part One, including the BAFTAs and, of course, the Oscars. The Dune Talk crew take time to celebrate all of the recognition this movie is receiving and offer historical perspectives on what all of it means.
We also address the major omission that’s on everyone’s on minds: How is it even possible that Denis Villeneuve is not nominated for directing? Finally, Garin, Johnny, Marcus, and Simon look ahead to the awards ceremony on March 27, 2022 and share Oscars win predictions.
This podcast (62 minutes) is available below in both video and audio formats. Enjoy and spread the word to fellow Dune fans!

Dune: Part One receives 10 Oscar Nominations, including for best picture. The movie is also a top contender at these prestigious awards—second only behind The Power of the Dog, with 12—although the exclusion of Denis Villeneuve from the directing category was startling.
