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:

  • First trailers dropped for Netflix’s “The Punisher” with Jon Bernthal and Aaron Sorkin’s “Molly’s Game” with Jessica Chastain.
  • Rumors are going around that Ben Affleck will NOT reprise Batman in future films.
  • Could there be a Death Star in the Han Solo prequel?  We also guess how the movie ends to connect to “A New Hope.”
  • We are also getting a prequel to Obi-Wan Kenobi and his origins.  Do we need this?
  • We have your 2017 ACCA TV Winners where we (and by “we” – we mean Clayton) pull a La La Land/Moonlight-type mistake.  Sorry!
  • We play a game called “DELETE THE ACTOR” and it’s getting harder by the choices.
  • We have lots of questions from the readers including some that go around the “worst” acting winners ever, and much more!

THIS EPISODE IS EDITED BY DREW GRIFFIN.

Clayton Davis--prolific writer and autism awareness advocate of Puerto Rican and Black descent, known for his relentless passion, dedication, and unique aptitude. 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. Furthermore, Clayton obtained his B.A. degree in American Studies and Communications.
