Circuit Breaker Episode 46: First Half Oscar Contenders, Emmy Races, and Festival Guesses

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:

  • Looking at the first six months of the year, what Oscar contenders have we been given thus far?  Has something like “Wonder Woman” ruined any chances for “Logan?”  Are there any “off-beat” choices for the Academy to make down the road?
  • Emmy voting is underway.  What will top the Drama Series without “Game of Thrones” being there?  What could overtake “Veep” in Comedy Series?  Is there anything that can beat “Big Little Lies?”
  • With NYFF announcing their opening night film (“Last Flag Flying”), we’re taking educated guesses about what festivals certain films could play.
