Awards Circuit Power Hour Episode 49: Movie Trailers, Emmy Talk, and Our First 2014 Oscar Contenders!


PowerHour_Logo_NewAs we inch closer to our 50th podcast episode, the writers and I talk about quite a bit this week.  Of course, after the HUGE week of trailers, our first half of the show is dedicated to all the various movie trailers that dropped including Gravity, August: Osage County, The Butler, and Captain Phillips.  Do we think these are possible contenders or did they strike the wrong chord with some of our staff members?

Mark drops some serious knowledge on this week’s “Did You Know?”

We reflect on the opening of Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby.  What did our staff members think of the film and what do we think of its Oscar chances and its lead Leonardo DiCaprio.

It was the week of canceling television shows and we discuss the possible Emmy Contenders in both Drama and Comedy categories.  What are your favorite shows on television at the moment?  Discuss with us.

Finally, we talk about the Oscar contenders that have already emerged.  Is Sarah Polley’s Stories We Tell the first contender or does Derek Cianfance’s The Place Beyond the Pines still have a fighting chance?

Listen and enjoy!
