Awards Circuit Power Hour Episode 53: Fun DiCaprio, Directors in Contention, and RIP Gandolfini


POWERHOUR_LOGO_NEWAwards Circuit Power Hour is back this week with packed agenda for your listening pleasure.  The staff and I digest lots of news from the past week and talk about interesting topics that include:

  • We go Around the Room for our funny/interesting stories from our week.
  • We had two big money making weekends that included Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, Pixar’s Monsters University, and the zombie film, World War Z.  We talk about our favorite superhero, cartoon, and zombie film of all-time.
  • It was a trailer filled week that included The Spectacular Now, Diana, and The Wolf of Wall Street.  Are we anticipating Oscar contenders from these films?
  • Hear your movie horoscopes of the week along with your movie recommendation.
  • Steve McQueen’s 12 Years a Slave released official images and we discuss how dark and gritty the film looks.  Is Michael Fassbender set to have his biggest year  yet?
  • 50 Shades of Grey has found its director.  Are they going for the NC-17 version or will it get watered down to attract more audiences?
  • We play the Producer Game – Let’s bring a book or a sequel to the big screen.
  • Oscar Temperature Check for Best Director.  Is it Ridley Scott’s year or will Martin Scorsese go for Oscar #2?

Give a listen and include your thoughts in the comment section.
