The Academy Awards just (K)ended, and so too has the 2023–24 season of the Movies Fantasy League reached its Ken-clusion. (We’re done.)

It wasn’t the most exciting Oscars ceremony (Oppenheimer won a lot, as expected), but it was a thrilling final month of the MFL, as the players who ponied up for Christopher Nolan’s Best Picture winner watched anxiously as their teams inched closer and closer to the top of the standings. When all was said and done, Oppenheimer’s big night upended the standings and left team Ben Chung standing alone at the top. (There was a tie for second, requiring MFL administrators to comb through a transcript of the Oscars ceremony at 11:30 p.m., counting how many times Barbie was mentioned.)

We hope you enjoyed the season and the new features that were added, and we hope to see you again this fall. Until then, be sure to check out all the podcasters who participated in that mini-league — and if you need a daily movies game fix, the Cinematrix will always be there for you.
