15 of the best movies of 2020, according to the hosts of the Lee Enterprises movie podcast 'Just to be Nominated'


'Just to be Nominated' is hosted and produced by Chris Lay, the podcast operations manager for Lee, along with Bruce Miller, the editor of the Sioux City Journal, and Jared McNett, a reporter for the Globe Gazette in Mason City, Iowa.

Last time they checked in the name of the (reindeer!) game was Holiday movies! From certified classics to offbeat horror flicks, you can find that episode in our archives if you're still feeling the yule-tide spirit.

For this episode our hosts ran down their personal lists of favorite films from 2020 which was far and away one of the most unusual years for movies... ever. Bruce had some great things to say about a recent Netflix release and all but assured Oscar contender, Chris's list was long on unsettling Covid-inspired picks, and Jared simply could not stick to movies (but no one held that against him).

Links to where you can watch, stream, or rent all of the movies they picked can be found in the show notes here.

Oh! Also: Lee Enterprises just launched a really wonderful new podcast you might like, called The Ethical Life. It's hosted by Richard Kyte, director of the Ethics Institute at Viterbo University, and Scott Rada, Lee's social media manager, and every other week or so they'll explore the intersection of ethics and modern life. You can click the link above, or search for it on your pod player of choice!
