If you listened to this week’s edition of the Awards Circuit Power Hour, you heard the announcement of the Season 8 selections for Academy Idol. If you’re new to Awards Circuit, let me break it down. Using the style of FOX’s hit-show “American Idol,” we take a few of the best films from the year and pit them against each other week to week.
20 films have been selected, and you will vote on those films based on the theme “Screenwriters.” The films are broken into two categories, Original and Adapted. The top five highest vote-getters of each group will advance to the Top 12. On next week’s episode of Power Hour, we will conduct a “Wild Card” show, where the two remaining spots will be filled.
Make sure to vote (as much as you’d like) and keep your favorite films in the competition. If you have a Wildcard suggestion for the Wildcard show, please put those in the comments.
Enjoy the season!
