Circuit Breaker Episode 34: ‘Logan’s’ Oscar Chances, Acting Preview, and ‘Kong: Skull Island’

Welcome to the Awards Circuit podcast titled “CIRCUIT BREAKER!,” a weekly podcast from featuring host Clayton Davis along with panelists Sam Coffey, Mark Johnson and Joey Magidson. We discuss movies, television and all the awards shows that need predicting. New episodes are released every Monday. Find us on Twitter at @Circuit_Pod, email us at [email protected], and submit your comments and questions at the bottom of the episode.

On the agenda:

  • “Logan” has brought in a lot of money so far and the reviews have been very positive.  Many are speaking about an Oscar run for its stars Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, and even for the film itself.  Does it have a shot at gaining traction where past films like “Deadpool” have failed?
  • We saw the opening of “Kong: Skull Island” and give our initial thoughts on the film that’s building to a monster cross over.
  • Oscar Predictions have started and we’re talking about the prospects of many of the frontrunners:
    • Gary Oldman (“Darkest Hour” from Joe Wright)
    • Jessica Chastain (“Molly’s Game” from Aaron Sorkin)
    • Hugh Jackman (“The Greatest Showman” from Michael Gracey)
    • Emma Stone (“Battle of the Sexes” from Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris)
    • Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep (“The Post” from Steven Spielberg)
    • Judi Dench (“Victoria and Abdul” from Stephen Frears)
    • and more…
  • Questions from our readership!
