Super-popular video essayist Lindsay Ellis is back on Funhouse to talk about her Hugo Award nomination for The Hobbit Duology, which she created with Angelina Meehan. Before Lindsay heads off to Ireland for the ceremony this week, she and Bill -- both fans of the LOTR movies -- chat about this fascinating three-part documentary which explores how the Hobbit movies doomed themselves which each successive choice, plus the disheartening labor issues that further dispirited the production and ultimately hurt the New Zealand film industry. Lovesick elves, weirdly hot dwarves, and goblin management!
