Circuit Breaker Episode 52: ‘Suburbicon’ Trailer, Telluride Speculation, and the Acting Oscar Winner Shot

5

Welcome to the Awards Circuit podcast titled “CIRCUIT BREAKER!,” a weekly podcast from AwardsCircuit.com featuring host Clayton Davis along with panelists Sam Coffey, Mark Johnson, Joey Magidson, and Karen Peterson. 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 podcast@awardscircuit.com, and submit your comments and questions at the bottom of the episode.

On the agenda:

  • Talking some of the weirdest Oscar snubs in modern time, in both acting and tech categories.
  • Talking the weekend box office and movies regarding “The Emoji Movie” and “Atomic Blonde.”
  • From a question, we discuss the year’s in which there was not a split in Best Picture and Director, and how it “could” have split.
  • Speculating the Telluride Film Festival: What films will play there?
  • Who is overdue for an Oscar win, with just one or two Oscar nominations?
  • What are the best trailers that turned out to be terrible and vice versa?
  • New trailers have dropped for “It” and George Clooney’s “Suburbicon.”  Is the latter an Oscar player?
  • Are we due for a Marisa Tomei-type Oscar win in the near future?
  • Speculating the “Oscar winner” shot at the end of the season.  What four people would you want to see?

    Happy listening

      Commiserations Joey for your grandpa. You should do a review of his favourite movie in his honour.

      Or review Dirty Grandpa and tear it to shreds

      • Joey Magidson

        Thanks, and believe it or not, he enjoyed that one. I sort of did too.

    Power Hour Question:

    If a studio executive came to your house, and for some reason asked you to make any movie you wanted with an unlimited budget, what would the movie be about?
