Awards Circuit Power Hour Episode 36: Oscar Nomination Reactions, Golden Globe Predictions, Academy Idol Results

12

POWERHOUR_LOGO_NEWThis past week AMPAS presented their nominees for the very best of 2012.  We go through a slew of categories to discuss our reactions and who could be winning in six weeks time.  With Spielberg’s Lincoln leading with 12 nominations and Lee’s Life of Pi close behind with 11, are we due for an upset or can a film with no directing nomination like Ben Affleck’s Argo pull through at the last minute?

We also talk some of the BFCA winners, the show, and how the first award show of the season can be perceived.

The Golden Globes are tonight and we make our final predictions of who and what can receive a boost from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

Your Academy Idol Results are at the top of the show.  Which film was axed after your votes?  Check it out.

Comment and discuss!
