It’s been really fun delivering (mostly) weekly podcasts to you all and we’ve hoped you enjoyed them. We’re almost at the half century mark and are planning a fun look into the lives of the writers for the big 5-0! As you know last year we did a Digging Into series with the writers interviewing each other but this year we are looking for you wonderful readers to help us out. So if you’ve ever wanted to ask a specific writer a question about movies, their life, why the earth is round, who they think will win the World Series, you now have the opportunity. You can submit your questions in the form after the jump. If you want to just submit a general question for the entire staff, just put “General” in the line asking for the writers name. The form will be open till the 10th so get your questions in before then. Look forward to seeing what you have to say! Read more on 50th Power Hour Podcast Coming Soon – We’re taking your questions!…
It’s our final (pre-recorded) podcast before the Academy Awards. We’re talking heavy in every single category as much as we can.
Before we jump into the categories, I reveal the Academy Idol finalists. Which two do you think made it? Amour and Beasts of the Southern Wild? Zero Dark Thirty and Amour? Beasts of the Southern Wild and Zero Dark Thirty? Listen and see.

It’s that time again we’re taking questions for Power Hour! We’ll be broadcasting LIVE on Blog Talk radio talking about the PGA Awards, how the Oscar race stands now, and announce the winners of the first annual Circuit Awards! There will be an opportunity for you to send your questions LIVE during the recording of Power Hour or you can post them in the comments. We will be recording on Sunday at 6:00 pm Eastern Time.

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.
It’s all about the critics’ awards this week as we dive into the choices by the Critics Choice Movie Awards, Golden Globe Nominations, Screen Actors Guild Nominations and a slew of other groups that announced last week.
We had our first LIVE show this past Sunday at 6:00 pm on the Power Hour. For the most part, it was a success and with small kinks to work out, it may be something we adopt and do much more often.
This week we were joined by Ann Dowd, winner of the National Board of Review’s Best Supporting Actress award for her powerful performance in Craig Zobel’s Compliance. We speak with Ann about her most iconic roles, what’s next for the actress, and how she’s taking in the awards chatter thus far.
Following Ann’s chat, we have out FYC talk and take questions from you, the readers and suggestions about what films and performances we should consider for our year-end awards.
It’s time again we’re taking questions for Power Hour, but with a twist! As you all know awards season is upon us and we need your help to parse it all. Clayton has to turn in his ballot for BFCA this weekend and we want to know what films, performances or technical merits he should be considering! There will be an opportunity for you to send your questions LIVE during the recording of Power Hour. We will be recording on Sunday at 6:00 pm Eastern Time. So be here Sunday @ 6 sharp to give your feedback and ask your questions. You can also leave it in the comment section.
We’d also like to announce that Oscar contender Ann Dowd, who just won Best Supporting Actress from the National Board of Review for her work in Compliance, will be joining us on the podcast.
Look forward to your questions for Ann and suggestions for BFCA.
Cue Richard Strauss’ “Also sprach Zarathustra” in honor of the announcement of The Awards Circuit’s infamous online movie competition…Academy Idol!! Yes, thanks to the help of our “Academy Idol” liaison and former staff member, Myles Hughes, we unleashed what could possibly be the best viral video of the year: The Introduction of Academy Idol Six’s Top 26. Like Scar sings in The Lion King, you best “BE PREPARED!” for the competition by making sure to vote for your absolute favorites. Trust me when I say that at any week, any film is vulnerable no matter its commercial stature or indie sophistication, so your votes are of the utmost importance. We will commence with the first round of voting this week to determine the films moving forward as Finalists, so please…do us a favor…ROCK THE VOTE! Read more on Circuit Round-Up (Week Ending 11/19)…
We are joined this week by Associate Editor and Staff Writer of Coming Soon, Edward Douglas. We dive into a variety of topics including the recent openings of Flight and Wreck-It Ralph. We also cover the following things in today’s agenda:
The Awards Circuit Power Hour returns twelve hours earlier before Hurricane Sandy plows through the East Coast. Just in case my internet and electricity go out, you’ll have our episode down in the books. The staff and I discuss the following things on this week’s episode.
The reception to Cloud Atlas. Is it an Oscar contender? What are some of the feelings swirling around the web about this ambitious feature? Is there room in the race for newcomers Doona Bae and Ben Whishaw?
Ballots for the International Press Academy’s Satellite Awards went out this past week. Without seeing the big, end of the year favorites, is the award show telling of anything at all?
With such poor discipline as critics, we discuss the Documentary Feature race and which films could emerge on top. Could an early year favorite and high-profile film like Bully make the final cut with the Weinsteins backing?
We attempt to break down nearly every category.
Of course, we take a bunch of YOUR questions as well.
We’re taking questions for this week’s episode of “Power Hour.” We will also be having a special guest on the show this week! No other than the one who started it all, the great Sasha Stone of Awards Daily (http://www.awardsdaily.com). This should be our best show yet.
In case you’ve forgotten or are new to the Power Hour, you have an opportunity to send in questions that will be read on the episode. You can either leave it in the comment section below or send it in via SpeakPipe which is on the sidebar floating around. Your question will be played on the air during our episode if chosen so make them good!
Just a preview, we’re talking new movie trailers and the Lead and Supporting Actress race. Power Hour plays every Monday!
