This will be our last pre-recorded Power Hour before the Academy Awards next Sunday. We will be having a LIVE podcast show beginning at 5:00pm Eastern time on Oscar Sunday to discuss last-minute jitters and announce the winner of the sixth season of Academy Idol. Until then, ask any questions you have that you want us to discuss on the episode.
Just a heads up, we’re ONLY talking Oscar Predictions so make it related to the race (as I’m sure you will anyway).
We are a few days from the big announcement of the Oscar nominations and the staff and I dig deep into the major categories while discussing some things from the past week.
The first thing on the agenda is to reveal the results of the Top 9 Academy Idol films. Since last week’s theme was “Golden Globe Nominations”, which film do you think got the axe?
We take several of your questions from the speculation of online voting fraud to our beliefs in films like The Master and Django Unchained.
We talk the upcoming Directors Guild of America nominations. With Ben Affleck Kathryn Bigelow, and Steven Spielberg looking good for citation (and to some extent Ang Lee), could we get a surprise from someone like Wes Anderson or Benh Zeitlin? Also, with the sliding scale, are the days of the “lone director” over?
We give our reactions to last week’s Producers Guild and Writers Guild nominations. Which films received a boost?
We talk about some films that could show up surprisingly a la The Blind Side and Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close.
Are we due for a surprise in any of the acting categories? We discuss.
Have you ever wanted to interview an Oscar contender? Are you particularly passionate about a film this year and want to make your case known? Well you’ll have a great opportunity to do both of those things as the Awards Circuit will be hosting our first ever LIVE Power Hour episode this Sunday at 6pm! We will have Ann Dowd, just named NBR’s Best Supporting Actress, on hand as well as get your opinions on what films we should be considering this awards season and any other questions you might have. Check out how you can call in after the jump! Read more on Awards Circuit goes LIVE! Join us on Sunday at 6pm with NBR Best Supporting Actress Ann Dowd!…
It’s that time again, we’re taking your questions for Power Hour! We’re going to be talking New York Film Fest, horror movies, and of course the Oscars. There are two ways to send them in; you can record a message to us via Speakpipe on our sidebar or directly on our Facebook page or you can also write your question down in the comment section and hear it read on our podcast.
The awards race is really starting to shape up right now, and The Awards Circuit was on site this week at the New York Film Festival to report on potential Oscar bidders as well as a slew of yet-to-be-released titles coming our way! Hyde Park on Hudson might not be a serious awards contender next year, but that doesn’t mean it’s a poor film according to Editor-in-Chief Clayton Davis. Depending on what happens with its release date, our editor also believesFrances Ha might just be the indie that sneaks in this year. Word is that the film’s a gem, and its writer and star, Greta Gerwig, most assuredly deserves Oscar recognition in the “Best Actress” category. Joey Magidson, who is also in attendance at NYFF with our fearless leader, reveals his thoughts on Brian De Palma’s new film, Passion, while also making some time to watch two documentaries on Hollywood icons (John Cassavetes and Roman Polanski: Odd Man Out). All in all, there could be an Oscar contender in the mix from what Joey and Clayton have seen, but surely the big guns will soon show their barrels (Life of Pi and Flight).

Scott Feinberg of the Hollywood Reporter and ScottFeinberg.com will be a guest on this week’s Power Hour. We will be talking a slew of things including the recent changes to the Academy and late entries like “Hitchcock” and “Promised Land.”
We’re taking your questions that will be read (or heard) on the episode. You can send it in the comment section or via Speakpipe on the sidebar!
We’re talking Oscar Predictions! We are joined by Nathaniel Rogers of The Film Experience for this Oscar-centric Power Hour! We’re talking the Best Actress, Supporting Actress, and a bit of Best Picture as the festivals unveil some answers to some of the big questions circling the race. Some of your questions are also being answered as well.
Nathaniel offers great insight into the race and puts forth some valid points and using the term “weak” in conjunction with the ladies of the race.
This week at The Awards Circuit was much ado about EVERYTHING. Before I begin recapping the monumental event that is the Toronto Film Festival — where our very own John H. Foote is currently at, sharing with us daily reviews and diary segments about the most promising films that are coming out of TIFF, right on course for Oscar season — I would like to turn our attention to the latest episode of Power Hour. In this most recent episode, the staff ponder how much weight should be given to Argo’s Oscar chances now that the raves from Venice are in. Is it a “Best Picture” contender, and will The Academy finally recognize Ben Affleck’s directorial efforts after ignoring him for both The Town and Gone Baby Gone? Personally, I never found either of those films “Best Picture” worthy — truth be told, I detested Gone Baby Gone for its convoluted story and melodramatic antics — but I have a very good feeling about Argo. Take a listen to the podcast and see what some of the staff have to say about Argo and its potential interaction with the Golden Man.We also reveal our personal favorite performances from the last decade.

The staff and I discuss several topics this week but focus a bit on the theater going experience that often gets overlooked. The best part about going to the movies is embracing the traditions each of us have on the occasion. We talk about it all.
Today the staff and I will be recording “Power Hour” for your listening entertainment. We’ll also be reading questions galore and playing the ones you send in via Speakpipe, which you can send on the right sidebar or our Facebook page.
We’ll be talking about the festivals, our old favorite movies, and of course, a little Oscar talk.
The Awards Circuit began the week by getting Stone-d. No kids, not that kind of getting “stoned” — the better one which includes being in the presence of the Queen of Oscar Predictions…the one who started it all for us online awards prognosticators…Sasha Stone, Editor-in-Chief and founder of AwardsDaily.com. Sasha Stone was our humble guest on this week’s episode of “Power Hour,” and not only was she a popular and pertinent contributor to the awards race discussion amongst the staff, but she also drew in the largest “Power Hour” audience yet with over 600 “plays.” She gave us a lot of food for thought for the Oscar 2013 race, possibly convincing many to rethink former predictions for the better. Without question, Sasha Stone’s guest appearance on “Power Hour” was the highlight of our week, and we thank her for taking the time out of her schedule to talk Oscars with us!

The staff writers have taken over. Actually, I opted out because I haven’t seen Ridley Scott’s Prometheus yet (I know, I know, I’m getting to it this week…I hate watching movies with loud, obnoxious people). Staff Writers Terence, Joey, and Mark talk about the good, bad, and ugly with this weekend’s 2nd highest grossing film.
