  • 1 year on the internet is like 10 human years. So really, Awards Circuit is like 90.

    When KP said she thought The Big Short should have won, I literally said out loud, “Heeeere we go.”

    • I still maintain it’s a great movie and Clayton is wrong. It happens once in awhile.

      • Robby Poffenberger

        Haha. I don’t understand all the hate for that movie. Glad you took a stand

  • Robby Poffenberger

    Really enjoyed this episode. I discovered The Oscar Igloo during the 2007 No Country vs. TWBB debacle and have probably visited it every other day since. Now, this podcast is one of the highlights of my week. Thanks for all you do, and go easier on Mark because he’s swell.

    • Joey Magidson

      Mark loves it. Like sibling rivalry.

      • Robby Poffenberger

        Sorry, I probably sounded serious. I actually enjoy the interchange

        • Joey Magidson

          Nah, all good. Just clarifying, since I know we’re ruthless at times.

    • Mark is sort of okay sometimes. 😉

      In momentary seriousness, though, I only tease people I really like.

      Thank you for reading! Glad we can bring you some joy!

    Did the Circuit Madness finale ever happen? I don’t think it did but I might have missed it. If it didn’t, will it open up soon?

    In further honor of the Awards Circuit’s 9 year anniversary, what is your favorite film year from the last 9 years? Mine would be 2013 with tons of great movies like The Wolf of Wall Street, Gravity, 12 Years a Slave, Her, Captain Phillips, and Inside Llewyn Davis.
