Hamer Will Should Win

Oscars 2014: Will Win/Should Win (Robert Hamer)

What a year, what a year! Well, movie-wise my whole year was – give or take some donations from generous studios – compressed to roughly three months, and I’m still playing catch-up on the cinematic offerings of 2013. Not that I’m complaining, though. Maybe the return from deployment has been messing with my head, but I have not […]

Circuit Round-Up (Week Ending 2/24)

Well it happened, ladies and gents! Ben Affleck’s mega-popular Argo “Crash“-ed its way to “Best Picture” victory. Just like Paul Haggis’ come-from-behind champion in 2006, Argo took home the very same wins in the very same categories (Picture, Screenplay, and Editing), in addition to being announced the winner by Jack Nicholson yet again. The Crash […]

Oscars 2013: Will Win/Should Win (Hamer)

Circuit Round-Up (Week Ending 1/13)

The only way to sum up the week is with two simple words: Oscar® Nominations. As you might have heard in our special LIVE Power Hour episode, The Awards Circuit staff was more than a little shocked by the unveiling of the nominees. All we kept thinking as the Director’s category was being announced was, […]

Circuit Round-Up (Week Ending 1/6)

The penultimate week before Oscars are announced has come to an end, ballots have been turned in, and now only five days separate us between not knowing the Academy Award™ nominations and finding out how just how in-touch (or out-of-touch) The Awards Circuit is with 2013’s Oscar® lineup. I, for one, can’t control my nerves […]
