Bonus Banter: Martin Short, Beck Bennett, & Timothee Chalamet

Bonus Banter: Martin Short, Beck Bennett, & Timothee Chalamet
After recording Episode 23, the boys realized they had gone on a few too many tangents. So they took out the worst bits to shorten the episode into something more manageable. Today, they present these worst bits to you in a bonus episode,  tied together with some additional transitions that Sonny and Tom recorded to help make the sudden change from one bit to another less awkward. So if you thought that last week's episode was just a bit too good, enjoy the parts that we decided were somehow worse than the garbage we talked about last time.Included in this unwanted gift of an episode is a conversation about the hit piece against Martin Short, which critiqued a good man for no real reason. The hosts then proceed to do that themselves by taking a look at the post-SNL career of Beck Bennett, who they compare to Joey Fatone for some reason. Trust us, it comes from a place of love. But the final bit of the episode doesn't really, as the boys discuss Timothee Chalamet's upcoming Wonka movie and what a drastic misstep this is for his career. He's just not whimsical enough! For two guys who do not work in film and are much less successful than everyone they talk about, Sonny and Tom sure do love to judge the careers of others.Hosted by Sonny de Nocker (@swankysonny) and Tom Price (@thomas_price22).Theme by Josh Britt (jbrittmusic.com)Instagram: AnOscarForArnoldTwitter: @AnOscar4ArnoldTikTok: AnOscarForArnoldContact: AnOscarForArnold@gmail.com
Oops! All Banter: Drunk Jimmy Fallon, Prude Penn Badgley, & The Best Property Brother

Oops! All Banter: Drunk Jimmy Fallon, Prude Penn Badgley, & The Best Property Brother
The boys take it easy today and stop worrying about those pesky themes and structured conversations to just have a chat. They discuss a number of things, which I will now spoil in this description so the episode is more likely to get noticed from online searches.First the boys discuss the fan vote for their CGI Character Bracket, which was completed on Instagram after Episode 22's release. They would be remiss if they didn't bring up the new Arnold Netflix documentary, simply called "Arnold," and then brag about how they knew everything in it already because they're such big Arnold Schwarzenegger fans. Then the hosts decide that the superior Property Brother has been determined, since one of them has now married Zooey Deschanel. But there's also a clear worst Property Brother, their older brother JD who may or may not be a plumber. The boys chat about the Leonard Bernstein documentary and Bradley Cooper's comically large and possibly offensive nose before chastising Penn Badgley for not wanting to do sex scenes out of respect for his wife. Then they talk about Burning Man and the recent chaos going on within it, which Tom would like to be a part of. And finally, they bring up the recent allegations of a toxic work environment at the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, which is probably due to the fact that Jimmy is just too fun of a guy to be a good coworker. Stay off the booze, Jim!They still make time for the opening segment, in which they imagine Arnold playing Timothy Hutton's role in 1980's "Ordinary People," which sounds like a pretty depressing movie all things considered. But due to contractual obligations, the hosts still have to give the film its due diligence for the sake of completing that opening segment.Keep an eye out for a bonus episode of the content that wasn't good enough for this one coming soon! Just in case you thought this episode was a little *too* entertaining.Hosted by Sonny de Nocker (@swankysonny) and Tom Price (@thomas_price22).Theme by Josh Britt (jbrittmusic.com)Instagram: AnOscarForArnoldTwitter: @AnOscar4ArnoldTikTok: AnOscarForArnoldContact: AnOscarForArnold@gmail.com
Indiana Jones and the Crystal Flute
16-06-2023
Indiana Jones and the Crystal Flute
After everyone seemed to enjoy last year's episode "Indiana Jones and the Hurricane of Katrina," Sonny and Tom decided to continue their hobby of outlining modern-day Indiana Jones movies. And what excellent timing, with the new "Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny" coming out in just a couple weeks. And with how tepid the reviews for that currently seem, Sonny and Tom are arrogant enough to believe they've cooked up a better film after an hour of shooting the shit.For Indiana Jones and the Crystal Flute, the boys revisit a story from last year, when singer Lizzo played President James Madison's crystal flute. When she did that last September, Sonny and Tom discussed how cursed the flute seemed and imagined a scenario in which she was sucked into the flute for eternity. Today, they take that joke one step further, structuring the plot of an Indiana Jones movie in which our old hero Indy must go on a quest to save Lizzo from the cursed crystal flute. It's a film full of action and adventure as Indy teams up with Lizzo's manager Susan and goes on a journey through Europe, North Africa, and Oklahoma to uncover the secrets possessed by the mythical flute.And if that description somehow isn't enough to tickle your fancy, the boys also do their classic opening segment, Arnold in a famous role. Today, they uncover a 1961 courtroom drama called "Judgment at Nuremberg," which sees Arnold taking over the Oscar-winning role of Hans Rolfe, a defense attorney for the Nazis on trial. Originally played by Austrian actor Maximillian Schell, the role instantly gets the attention of Sonny and Tom for how incredibly perfect it seems for Arnold. Might we have a new contender for the coveted award "Arnold's Best Shot"? Only way to find out is to stop reading this description and listen to the episode.Hosted by Sonny de Nocker (@swankysonny) and Tom Price (@thomas_price22).Theme by Josh Britt (jbrittmusic.com)Instagram: AnOscarForArnoldTwitter: @AnOscar4ArnoldTikTok: AnOscarForArnoldContact: AnOscarForArnold@gmail.com
Which Movie has a Higher Rotten Tomatoes Score?

Which Movie has a Higher Rotten Tomatoes Score?
It's time for another game episode! After the boys delivered such hits as "Which Celebrity Is Taller?," "Which Celebrity is Older?," and "Which Movie Made More Money?" they decided to bring you an even more arbitrary guessing game with "Which Movie has a Higher Rotten Tomatoes Score?"With Sonny having won all three of the previous game episodes, Tom is entering today's game with a vengeance never before seen in this podcast. Sonny, on the other hand, is kind of hoping Tom will win one so people don't start to think he's cheating. But that doesn't mean he'll be pulling any punches as the boys dole out ten rounds of putting two movies head-to-head and seeing if the other host can guess which one has a higher critics score on Rotten Tomatoes. Will Sonny finally have to say "We'll be back" in an Austrian accent at the end of the episode? Or will Tom furiously storm off the podcast after losing four times in a row? As always, play along at home and see how you do. Or don't, we'd never know anyways.There is, of course, the opening segment to handle first. And this one is a particularly remarkable, as Sonny and Tom discover the incredible and deeply sad story of Harold Russell, the war-veteran-turned-actor who won an Oscar for his role in "The Best Years of Our Lives" and then won a second Oscar for the same role! The boys discuss Russell's impressive and poignant life story and dedicate the episode to him before  rudely discussing if the guy who was in "Kindergarten Cop" could also win an Oscar if he played an amputee war veteran in the same role. It's a wonder we don't have a 5-star rating on Spotify yet.Hosted by Sonny de Nocker (@swankysonny) and Tom Price (@thomas_price22).Theme by Josh Britt (jbrittmusic.com)Instagram: AnOscarForArnoldTwitter: @AnOscar4ArnoldTikTok: AnOscarForArnoldContact: AnOscarForArnold@gmail.com
International Women's Day Special

International Women's Day Special
That's right, the episode that nobody requested is finally here! To celebrate International Women's Day, your two favorite male podcast hosts decided to do an episode that's for the girlies. Long overdue, right?Now, you may be wondering how a podcast about Austrian bodybuilder, actor, and governor Arnold Schwarzenegger could possibly do an episode dedicated to women. Trust us, we struggled with that question too. But we finally found a theme that we think satisfies both our desire to honor women and our deep love of Arnie. In this episode, the boys sit down to recast Arnold's most iconic roles with female actors in his place. They look at famous Arnold films such as True Lies, Total Recall, and Jingle All the Way and discuss which famous actress would do the best job filling Arnold's large shoes. Could Angelina Jolie play the Terminator? Could Nicole Kidman play off Danny DeVito in Twins? Could Margo Martindale kill the Predator? These are the important questions that are answered on An Oscar For Arnold's International Women's Day Special.Our opening segment has also been mixed up for International Women's Day, as Arnold in a Famous Role now looks specifically at roles that won Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress. Which means the boys imagine Arnold replacing Renee Zellweger in 2019's "Judy," where he would be taking on the role of the legendary Judy Garland. Could he do it with poise and nuance? It doesn't matter, because he wouldn't win an Oscar for that due to the sheer audacity of the concept. They look at another performance too, but I won't even bother writing about it in this description because it just ain't gonna pull any viewers and I already forgot what the movie was called.Hosted by Sonny de Nocker (@swankysonny) and Tom Price (@thomas_price22).Theme by Josh Britt (jbrittmusic.com)Instagram: AnOscarForArnoldTwitter: @AnOscar4ArnoldTikTok: AnOscarForArnoldContact: AnOscarForArnold@gmail.com
Oops! All Banter: Video Game Movies, AnnaSophia Robb, & Bad Ads

Oops! All Banter: Video Game Movies, AnnaSophia Robb, & Bad Ads
The boys are back with another banger banter episode! There's no single designated topic on this episode, just good vibes and good conversation. Pull up a chair and join your old pals Sonny and Tom to hear them shoot the shit about vaguely film-related things.If you're still not enticed, here's a little rundown of the topics they cover. First, the boys discuss the fan results of the previous episode's Nepotism Babies Bracket. The fans on Instagram (@AnOscarForArnold) voted in their own version of the bracket with a couple very shocking upsets. The boys then discuss the favorite Tom Hanks movies of Tom Hanks, who provided a list of three movies that he had the most fun making. They then move on to discussing video game adaptations, including HBO's "The Last of Us," what a Red Dead Redemption 2 series would look like, and how to make the best Pac-Man movie possible. After this, Sonny tells Tom about the wonders of AnnaSophia Robb's Instagram account and they hearken back to a time when Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson had hair. Finally, your trusty hosts discuss some of the ads that have been on TV lately, particularly Paul Giamatti's Verizon ad and Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul reuniting to play their Breaking Bad characters one last time in an attempt to sell PopCorners. And don't forget about the opening segment, in which Sonny and Tom discuss how Arnold Schwarzenegger would do if he took over Kevin Kline's role in 1988's "A Fish Called Wanda." Could Arnold play a mean-spirited Anglophobe? Not to spoil anything, but there may be a new contender for the award of Arnold's Best Shot, something the boys just created today. Hosted by Sonny de Nocker (@swankysonny) and Tom Price (@thomas_price22).Theme by Josh Britt (jbrittmusic.com)Instagram: AnOscarForArnoldTwitter: @AnOscar4ArnoldTikTok: AnOscarForArnoldContact: AnOscarForArnold@gmail.com
Nepotism Baby Bracket

Nepotism Baby Bracket
With all the recent uproar around nepotism babies in Hollywood, Sonny and Tom decided to throw their hats into the ring. Not by providing any meaningful commentary on the validity of nepotism babies' success, but by putting them head-to-head in a bracket to determine who the most talented one is.The boys have selected sixteen of the most successful nepotism babies in Hollywood and placed them into a bracket with no seeding. They do their best to decide these as quickly as possible and not dwell for too long, as they know how short the attention spans of their viewers are. Which nepotism baby will come out on top? Sadly, it's not Chet Hanks.As always, Sonny and Tom do their opening segment and discuss how Arnold Schwarzenegger would do if he took William Hurt's Oscar-winning role in 1985's "Kiss of the Spider Woman." Could Arnold win an Academy Award playing an effeminate homosexual Brazilian prisoner? The suspense is killing us. Along the way, the boys discuss how great of an actor Raul Julia was and discover how bad of a person William Hurt was. They do not mourn him.Upset about the choices made in this bracket? Follow us on Instagram and vote in our polls to determine who the fans select as the best nepotism baby. The boys will discuss the results in the next episode, forcing you to listen to us more.Hosted by Sonny de Nocker (@swankysonny) and Tom Price (@thomas_price22).Theme by Josh Britt (jbrittmusic.com)Instagram: AnOscarForArnoldTwitter: @AnOscar4ArnoldTikTok: AnOscarForArnoldContact: AnOscarForArnold@gmail.com
Guessing How Movies End
21-11-2022
Guessing How Movies End
Folks, we want to go ahead and take a moment to apologize for this one. We're not gonna lie to you, this seemed like a great idea going in. The concept was that we would read the synopsis and the beginning of the plot description for a few movies and try our best to guess how they might end. What resulted was one of the most dull and disjointed episodes we've ever made. And for that, we're truly sorry.We started with "Terminator: Dark Fate," which honestly went okay all things considered, even if it took a little too long. Then we moved on to "Sonic the Hedgehog 2," which is where the whole thing really collapsed. We got maybe half a decent joke out of our riffing and then Sonny disassociated hard while Tom did his best to make the five remaining paragraphs about the plot somewhat interesting. At this point, we realized the episode was a lost cause and spent a good few minutes trashing it before straining out some half-assed discussion about "Jack and Jill" and calling it a day.There's an opening segment, yes, and it's fine. Maybe a C+/B- as far as opening segments go. The boys discuss how Arnold Schwarzenegger would do if he had to play Michael Caine's role in "Hannah and Her Sisters." But we know you're not here to listen to that. And really, we wouldn't blame you if you didn't listen to this episode at all. The only thing we can do is promise to be better in the future. It's a learning experience, guys, and we're always doing our best to improve. We appreciate you bearing with us. Hosted by Sonny de Nocker (@swankysonny) and Tom Price (@thomas_price22).Theme by Josh Britt (jbrittmusic.com)Instagram: AnOscarForArnoldTwitter: @AnOscar4ArnoldTikTok: AnOscarForArnoldContact: AnOscarForArnold@gmail.com
Which Movie Made More Money?
05-11-2022
Which Movie Made More Money?
It's another game episode! After having played "Which Celebrity is Taller?" and "Which Celebrity is Older?," the boys decided to try a new game: "Which Movie Made More Money?" Sonny and Tom each prepared five matchups of two movies for the other man to guess which one had more success in the worldwide box office (not adjusted for inflation). Like the previous game episodes, things get heated between our two hosts. But who can blame them with so much on the line? The loser, as usual, must say "We'll be back" at the end of the episode in a thick Austrian accent. Sonny is the reigning champion going into the episode, but Tom is eager to overthrow him. Will he do it? Listen to find out.After the horrible opening segment in the previous episode, Sonny and Tom debated throwing out the whole concept. But they gave it another shot in this episode and pondered whether Arnold Schwarzenegger would win an Oscar for playing Jared Leto's Academy Award-winning role as a trans woman in 2013's "Dallas Buyers Club." We wish there was an obvious answer to the question, and in fact there is, but the hosts still have an obligation to give Arnold an honest shot by discussing the idea. What will win: Tom and Sonny's unreasonable love for Arnold or the undeniable fact that Arnold would be horrible in this role? Listen to find out.Special thanks to BoxOfficeMojo.com for providing the numbers for today's episode. They didn't have any say in the matter, but we thank them all the same.Hosted by Sonny de Nocker (@swankysonny) and Tom Price (@thomas_price22).Theme by Josh Britt (jbrittmusic.com)Instagram: AnOscarForArnoldTwitter: @AnOscar4ArnoldTikTok: AnOscarForArnoldContact: AnOscarForArnold@gmail.com
Switching Movie Genres
25-10-2022
Switching Movie Genres
Back quicker than ever before, Sonny and Tom decide to do some genre-swapping. In other words, they pick a movie, change the genre, then discuss how the new movie would work. It's not exactly the pinnacle of podcast topics, but we don't hear you coming up with anything better.Some of the genre swaps the boys explore include "Se7en" as a musical, "Silence of the Lambs" as a romance, and "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" as a comedy. Which of them will work and which of them will result in dead bits that only take up a couple minutes of the podcast before the hosts inevitably move on? You'll have to listen to find out! They also take a good few minutes to roast Denis Villeneuve's 2013 thriller "Prisoners" for what they believe is a glaring plot hole in an otherwise excellent but deeply depressing movie.If none of the above content sounds appealing, don't worry. The opening segment comes through to deliver an absolute stinker of a discussion, as the boys are forced to wonder if Arnold Schwarzenegger would win an Oscar for playing Jason Robards' role in the 1977 Holocaust drama "Julia." I'm sure all the Robardheads in the audience are losing it at the mere mention of this performance, so you'll be happy to hear that the boys keep the conversation about a Holocaust film as lively as they possibly can.Hosted by Sonny de Nocker (@swankysonny) and Tom Price (@thomas_price22).Theme by Josh Britt (jbrittmusic.com)Instagram: AnOscarForArnoldTwitter: @AnOscar4ArnoldTikTok: AnOscarForArnoldContact: AnOscarForArnold@gmail.com
Oops! All Banter
02-10-2022
Oops! All Banter
Today's episode has no main segment. Sonny and Tom decided to throw caution to the wind and shoot the shit for half an hour instead of focusing on one thing. They discuss the creepy promotion for the movie "Smile," putting Muppets in serious films, Lizzo playing James Madison's 200-year-old flute, and Bruce Willis allegedly selling the rights to his likeness. We promise this isn't us running out of main segments, we just figured it would be nice to have a casual chat without the pressures of outlining some convoluted movie or guessing which celebrity has a larger penis. You may or may not enjoy it, but there's only one way to find out.Fear not, though, because Sonny and Tom still find time to do their classic opening segment, Arnold in a Famous Role. Today, they discuss how Arnold Schwarzenegger would handle Sam Rockwell's role in 2017's "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri." Can Arnold win an Oscar for playing a racist? Maybe not, but Arnold's father certainly could.So sit back and enjoy an episode of all banter. As always, if it's bad we'll never do it again. But if it's good, please give the podcast a rating. Also, our lawyers would like us to note that Bruce Willis has denied selling his likeness since this was recorded. I'm just kidding, we don't have lawyers. But we do wish Bruce Willis the best.Hosted by Sonny de Nocker (@swankysonny) and Tom Price (@thomas_price22).Theme by Josh Britt (jbrittmusic.com)Instagram: AnOscarForArnoldTwitter: @AnOscar4ArnoldTikTok: AnOscarForArnoldContact: AnOscarForArnold@gmail.com
Turning Historical Events into Movies
02-08-2022
Turning Historical Events into Movies
Witness the birth of a new movie experience: The John F. Kennedy Cinematic Universe. Sonny and Tom sit down to discuss how they could turn historical events into movies. They'll discuss different events and what the plot of their respective movies would be, while also casting the movies with notable actors such as James Marsden and Luis Guzman. Join the boys as they make movies out of events such as the Unabomber's acts of terrorism ("Unabomber"), the Nazis doing meth in World War II ("Meth Nazis"), and the Soviets sending dogs into space ("Please Forgive Us"). Your mind will be blown when you find out how most of these movies tie into the JFKCU. We're coming for you, Kevin Feige.Today's edition of Arnold in a Famous Role sees Sonny and Tom imagining Arnold Schwarzenegger in F. Murray Abraham's Oscar-winning role as Antonio Salieri in "Amadeus" (1984). Salieri may not be Austrian, but the boys have confidence in Arnold's Italian accent. Or at least his vaguely British accent that the actors in American movies do when there's a story that takes place in Europe. Be sure to rate the podcast if you enjoyed it and follow us on Instagram @AnOscarForArnold and on Twitter @AnOscar4Arnold. We'll keep you up to date on the podcast, hit you with the occasional poll, and maybe even post a meme or two.Hosted by Sonny de Nocker (@swankysonny) and Tom Price (@thomas_price22).Theme by Josh Britt (jbrittmusic.com)Instagram: AnOscarForArnoldTwitter: @AnOscar4ArnoldTikTok: AnOscarForArnoldContact: AnOscarForArnold@gmail.com
Which Celebrity is Older?
31-05-2022
Which Celebrity is Older?
Sonny and Tom are back and better than ever as An Oscar For Arnold now has better microphones, a fantastic new intro, and two social media accounts (give us a follow)! The boys celebrate together by playing a game of "Which Celebrity is Older?" The rules are similar to Episode 6's "Which Celebrity is Taller?" which means each of them have prepared five pairs of celebrities to challenge the other into guessing which of the two is older. Of course, the loser will once again be subjected to saying the famous "we'll be back" in the outro, so the stakes are high. Play along at home as Sonny and Tom go head to head in this thrilling game and see how well you would do if you were also hosting an irreverent movie podcast with few listeners. Despite all the changes we've made, the signature opening segment is here to stay as the boys imagine how Arnold Schwarzenegger would do in Sean Penn's Oscar-winning role in 2003's "Mystic River." They also imagine how the movie would be if Sean Penn's costars, Tim Robbins and Kevin Bacon, were recast with Arnold's buddies Sylvester Stallone and Bruce Willis. Would that elevate Arnold's performance? That's up for debate.Be sure to follow us on Instagram @AnOscarForArnold, and on Twitter @AnOscar4Arnold. We'll keep you up to date on the podcast and maybe post a meme or two about Arnold having an affair. Special thanks to Josh Britt for making our incredible new intro and outro music.

A BMW For Arnold
15-02-2022
A BMW For Arnold
In today's special bonus episode of An Oscar For Arnold, Sonny and Tom sit down to discuss Arnold Schwarzenegger's advertisement at the Big Game, a football game that we can't name because we might get sued. If you were watching this Big Game on Sunday, you might have noticed Arnold appear as Zeus in a humorous and poignant advertisement for BMW. Alongside him was the great Salma Hayek, portraying his wife Hera. In the ad, Zeus and Hera retire from their life on Mt. Olympus to sunny Palm Springs, where Zeus finds himself unsatisfied with electricity on Earth. He quickly grows tired of their new life, until old Zeus receives a little gift from his wife, giving him back his power and helping the immortal couple find the love they thought they had lost.Sonny and Tom are here to do a deep dive on the ad, the teaser for the ad, and the director's cut of the ad. They provide an insightful look at the underlying themes of the ad, such as male impotence and the futility of the American Dream. They also go on a few tangents, such as imagining the success they'll experience once this podcast makes it big and pondering how Sylvester Stallone could win a Tony (the answer is a production of Fiddler on the Roof in a black box theater in Culver City). You can watch the BMW ad here: https://youtu.be/nUC1QA5gRcUAnd the director's cut of the ad here: https://youtu.be/3IaY1Ef95cIHosted by Sonny de Nocker (@swankysonny) and Tom Price (@thomas_price22).Theme by Josh Britt (jbrittmusic.com)Instagram: AnOscarForArnoldTwitter: @AnOscar4ArnoldTikTok: AnOscarForArnoldContact: AnOscarForArnold@gmail.com
Indiana Jones and the Hurricane of Katrina
15-01-2022
Indiana Jones and the Hurricane of Katrina
After the previous episode in which Sonny and Tom discussed which fictional characters would do best against which real-life catastrophes, the boys decided to expand on one idea in particular: Indiana Jones searching for an artifact in the midst of Hurricane Katrina.To accomplish this, Sonny and Tom look at the structure of a typical Indiana Jones movie to form a basic skeleton for what an Indiana Jones movie needs to have. They also study New Orleans, Hurricane Katrina, and notable events of the early 2000s to give an authentic period-accurate experience to our titular hero. Together, the boys put together an Indiana Jones movie that is decidedly better than the fourth one, although that's not saying much. Someone get George Lucas and Steven Spielberg on the phone, because we've got the next adventure for ol' Indy to grumble his way through. Featuring a flooded New Orleans, racist paramilitary groups, and Andrew Jackson's cursed bugle, "Indiana Jones and the Hurricane of Katrina" is a movie you're not gonna want to miss!Of course, An Oscar for Arnold wouldn't be complete without a bit of Arnold talk, and we really do mean just a bit. For their opening segment, Sonny and Tom discuss what it would be like if Arnold Schwarzenegger played John Houseman's character in the 1973 movie "The Paper Chase". Sonny also gives us his best John Houseman impression, which is only partially accurate but it doesn't really matter because almost nobody listening to this knows who John Houseman is (Tom even calls him Jonathan at one point). The boys also give a tribute to the late Sidney Poitier, who surprisingly only won one Academy Award in his career. Best of all? Tom has a new microphone, and now actually sounds better than Sonny. Special thanks to prequelrumors.tripod.com/formula.html for providing a basic formula to build the perfect Indiana Jones movie.Hosted by Sonny de Nocker (@swankysonny) and Tom Price (@thomas_price22).Theme by Josh Britt (jbrittmusic.com)Instagram: AnOscarForArnoldTwitter: @AnOscar4ArnoldTikTok: AnOscarForArnoldContact: AnOscarForArnold@gmail.com
Action Stars vs. Real-Life Tragedies
09-11-2021
Action Stars vs. Real-Life Tragedies
The podcast hosts whom you've come to love are back to make sure you stop loving them with this particularly offensive episode of "An Oscar for Arnold". Sonny and Tom have created a list of action heroes and have decided, for no real reason, to determine what the largest real-life tragedy each action hero could prevent is. The boys study the movies of each action hero and try to pair them with a tragedy that best suits their skills and typical circumstances. Action heroes like Rambo, James Bond, and the Terminator are going head-to-head with tragedies such as the assassination of John F. Kennedy, Hurricane Katrina, and 9/11. Have you ever wondered which action hero could best handle the Iran Hostage Crisis? Wonder no more after listening to this episode. Sorry in advance.There's also an opening segment in which the boys envision Arnold Schwarzenegger in 1980's "Raging Bull," for which Robert DeNiro walked away with an Academy Award. Needless to say, Arnold would be particularly well-equipped for such a role due to his sculpted body and tough demeanor. However, this opening segment will be quickly overshadowed by the offensive main segment that follows it, so you will quickly forget whether Arnold would win an Oscar if he took the role of Jake LaMotta.Sit back, relax, and listen to Sonny and Tom remove their chances of ever running for public office. Again, we would like to apologize in advance. If you hate this podcast and its hosts after listening to this episode, we understand and we hate ourselves too.Hosted by Sonny de Nocker (@swankysonny) and Tom Price (@thomas_price22).Theme by Josh Britt (jbrittmusic.com)Instagram: AnOscarForArnoldTwitter: @AnOscar4ArnoldTikTok: AnOscarForArnoldContact: AnOscarForArnold@gmail.com
