Welcome to the Awards Circuit podcast titled “CIRCUIT BREAKER!,” a weekly podcast from AwardsCircuit.comfeaturing 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 [email protected], and submit your comments and questions at the bottom of the episode.

On the agenda:

  • We’re talking the closing of the New York Film Festival last week.  The East Coast got their first look at “Mudbound” from Dee Rees (where standout notices came for Garrett Hedlund) and “Wonder Wheel” from Woody Allen (getting a less than stellar reception though Kate Winslet seems intact).  Where is the Oscar landscape today?
  • Harvey Weinstein was expelled from the Academy.  We’re sharing our thoughts.
  • The Paul Thomas Anderson movie has a title (“Phantom Thread“) which has us talking about “The Post” and these still unseen contenders.
  • Small, new studios are trying to make a name for themselves.  We talk about who and what they have.
  • Is there a frontrunner and people are just too SCARED to say so?
