Circuit Breaker Episode 42: ACCA 1993 Winners, News, and Forgotten Oscar Nominees


Welcome to the Awards Circuit podcast titled “CIRCUIT BREAKER!,” a weekly podcast from featuring host Clayton Davis along with panelists Sam Coffey, Mark Johnson and Joey Magidson. We discuss movies, television and all the awards shows that need predicting. New episodes are released every Monday. Find us on Twitter at @Circuit_Pod, email us at, and submit your comments and questions at the bottom of the episode.

On the agenda:

  • We’re announcing the winners of the 1993 Awards Circuit Community Awards.  With our first actual ceremony instituting the “preferential ballot” system.  Did it have an affect on the votes?
  • Thanks to questions from our readers, we talk about people we “forget” or “don’t realize” are Oscar nominees.  We also talk about our dream acting winners for next year.

    Hey guys, love the podcast! You might want to change it from saying new episodes are released every Monday.

    • Normally they are. We were backed up this week. Will “hopefully” release on Mondays. LOL.

  • AndreTheTurtle

    Owen Wilson is an Oscar nominee for co-writing The Royal Tenenbaums with Wes Anderson.

  • Baggins

    Reservoir Dogs for 1992 all the way!
    Best Picture
    Best Director – Quentin Tarantino
    Best Supporting Actor – any of them
    best original screenplay

  • Calvin Damon

    I think 1992 will be the first year that a voice performance wins an ACCA. I seriously think Robin Williams can take supporting actor for the genie

  • Luke McGowan

    Dream quartet:
    Hugh Jackman
    Rooney Mara
    Chiwetel Ejiofor
    Mia Wasikowska

    I guess Mary Magdalene needs to be a thing

    Power Hour Question:

    In light of the dumpster fire that is Pirates 5, if you could go back in time and make sure that any film was so unprofitable that a sequel would never be made, which film would it be?

  • RaulSGama

    Guys, a question, These days i caught Revolutionary Road again, (what a masterpiece), i didnt follow the race at that time, so, could you give a little of the scenario at that time, for the film only getting 3 noms, with the brilliance of Leo and Kate’s winning performances aside, if both winning together wasn’t a tempting narrative, what would be!? Thanks 🙂
