Oscar season is officially upon us, and we’re already making some early guesses at to who is going to walk home with the coveted statues. There’s quite a bit of overlap amongst the major categories, but also some genuine surprise; are any of these nominees locked in for the win in your book?

For this episode of The HO, we discuss what makes a truly great or memorable piece of stunt work as well as share some of our favorite moments of daring action in film over the years.

Double-check those safety nets, secure those harnesses, and whatever you do, don’t look down. You’re in for the thrill of a lifetime.

Join in on our conversation and listen to the latest episode of The Hollywood Outsider.
