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:

  • The box office of the weekend with “Coco” leading the way.  Leads to an assessment of the Animated Feature race on the heels of the precursors starting.  Could it lead the way this season or is something like “Loving Vincent” or “The Breadwinner” more of the critics liking?
  • Thanksgiving delivered screeners for awards voters to watch over the break.  Could something like “Wonder” hit at the right time?
  • The Independent Spirit Awards have announced their nominations and we go through each category and the connection to the Academy Awards.
  • Offering our guesses for the National Board of Review, New York Film Critics Circle, and Los Angeles Film Critics Association which all will announce this week.
  • Questions and Cinephile Showdowns from the readers!
