On the agenda:

  • The Middleburg Film Festival concluded this weekend where Awards Circuit was on site to interview some of the talents and watch some good movies.  Those films included “Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri” from Martin McDonagh, “Lady Bird” from Greta Gerwig, “Darkest Hour” from Joe Wright, “A Fantastic Woman” from Chile, “The Divine Order” from Switzerland, “In the Fade” from Germany, “Breathe” from Andy Serkis, “Novitiate” from Maggie Betts, and “I, Tonya” from Craig Gillespie.  We give you a detailed breakdown about the audience reactions to the films and where they currently stand in the Oscar race.
  • Mudbound” also won the Audience Award.  Are the Oscar pundits truly underestimating its chances in the race?  Also, check out our interviews with the cast (Mary J. Blige, Jason Clarke, director Dee Rees, Garrett Hedlund, Jason Mitchell, and Rob Morgan)
  • We also have some questions from the readers!
