The Awards Circuit team is thrilled to announce today’s launch of the new Circuit Center – a one-stop shop for all of YOUR predictions!

With the Circuit Center, readers can predict everything from the Oscars, to the Emmys, to TV show twists and more. Users will be able to create a unique login (or link their existing Facebook, Twitter or Google accounts) and make their own predictions, which can be easily shared with all of your friends via social media. You can also see how each candidate currently ranks based on how many users are predicting it.

The best part of the Circuit Center is, at the end of each month, your predictions will archive automatically, making it easy to track your predictions over time and see how you did year-over-year, month-over-month!

This is an initial “soft” launch, and we want you – the readers – to help us out!

To get started, go to either the “MAIN MENU” or the “SIGN IN” button to the top right of the page. Create or link your profile from your existing accounts. Once complete, click on “CIRCUIT CENTER” in the menu and start predicting. In order to make your predictions, choose the show or event you want to weigh in on. Click on a category. From the “CONTENDERS” listing, you can either drag or double click your choices into the “PREDICTS” column. Order your choices by their likelihood of winning. You can edit your predictions as often as you’d like until the specified “LOCKED IN” date that is provided by Awards Circuit.

Please provide feedback to help us make the Circuit Center the best it can be.

BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!

With the launch of the Circuit Center, we are also launching our very own Awards Circuit Message Boards. With the IMDB boards going off into pasture, we thought it would be as good a time as any to have our own discussion boards. While those can be a nightmare for some, we have a strong team in place to monitor and police the boards as much as needed. We’re also looking for some help from readers if you would like to be a moderator. More information will come regarding that opportunity.

The Message Boards will be launched this weekend.

Over the course of a decade, he has been criticizing both film and television extensively. To date, he has been either featured or quoted in an array of prominent outlets, including but not limited to The New York Times, CNN.com, Variety, Deadline, Los Angeles Times, FOX 5, Bloomberg Television, AOL, Huffington Post, Bloomberg Radio, The Wrap, Slash Film, and the Hollywood Reporter. Growing up in the Bronx, Clayton’s avid interest in the movie world began the moment he first watched "Dead Poets Society” at just five years of age. While he struggled in English class all throughout grade school, he dived head first into writing, ultimately taking those insufficiencies and transforming them into ardent writings pertaining to all things film, television, and most importantly, the Academy Awards. In addition to crafting a collection of short stories that give a voice to films that haven’t made it to the silver screen, Clayton currently serves as the Founding Editor of AwardsCircuit.com. He also holds active voting membership at various esteemed organizations, such as the Broadcast Film Critics Association, Broadcast Television Journalists Association, African-American Film Critics Association, New York Film Critics Online, Black Reel Awards, and International Press Academy.
