Introducing – In Line: 365

overdueIf you listened to the Awards Circuit Power Hour this week, you heard many of the staff members and myself make New Year’s Resolutions for both filmmakers and ourselves.  While I’m fully expecting (yet determined) to have my resolution of waking at 5:00 am every morning and going for a run to crash and burn, I wouldn’t be the best Awards Circuit owner I could be without bringing something to the table that could benefit our wonderful readership.  Introducing, “In Line: 365”.

Falling in line with our popular “Under the Circuit” series and “Oscar Question of the Day,” I have made a resolution to bring 365 different actors, directors, writers, craftsman, etc, who haven’t had their dance with Oscar yet but seem to be “in line” for a nomination or even a win.  After doing a brief profile of their past works, I will leave our readership to discuss in the comment section if their dream as an Oscar nominee falls under the following categorizations:

  • HEPBURN = It’s inevitable they will be win an Oscar (or two, or three, or four) someday.
  • O’TOOLE = Oscar nominations could be in their future but it’s unclear if they will win an Oscar.
  • DEMILLE = Give or take a lifetime achievement award, the person will likely never win.

I hope you all enjoy the series this year as well as everything that the Awards Circuit will offer and leave plenty of ideas of who to cover along the way. 

Happy New Year Awards Circuit!
