Circuit Breaker Episode 44: ‘Wonder Woman’ Talk, Cannes Winners, and Oscars Check Up

Welcome to the Awards Circuit podcast titled “CIRCUIT BREAKER!,” a weekly podcast from AwardsCircuit.com featuring host Clayton Davis along with panelists Sam Coffey, Mark Johnson, Joey Magidson, and Karen Peterson. 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:

  • We have an in-depth discussion about Patty Jenkins’ “Wonder Woman.”  We’re talking the positives and negatives about the story, its star Gal Gadot, and what this does for the DC Universe.
  • Quite a bit of questions came in and we answer some of them that deal with Cinephile Showdowns, dream acting quartets, and YOUR recommendations for ACCA 1992.
  • We dip a bit into Oscar Predictions and the anticipation of such films like “The Mountain Between Us” and “Victoria and Abdul” that both got trailers last week.  We’re also talking the winners of the Cannes Film Festival and where contenders like Sofia Coppola (“The Beguiled“), Joaquin Phoenix (“You Were Really Never Here”), and Diane Kruger (“In the Fade”) sit in the lineup.
