Awards Circuit Power Hour Episode 82: DGA-Oscars Link, Sundance Winners, Academy Idol Top 6 Results

Our weekly podcast dives deep in the race for the Oscars as well as other big news…

POWERHOUR_LOGO_NEW1Welcome to another edition of the Awards Circuit Power Hour, our weekly podcast diving deep into all things film, television, and entertainment.

What a week it has been.  The race for the Oscars continues.  Lots of news to go over including the closing of the Sundance Film Festival where Terence attended and saw films like “Boyhood” and “Dear White People.”  We also go over some of the big acquisitions that included “Whiplash” and “Frank.”

Quentin Tarantino has shelved his (supposed) next feature “The Hateful Eight.”  Is this a good thing for Tarantino?  Did the story seem too familiar for the once innovative and fresh writer/director?

The Weinstein Company has set “Grace of Monaco” to open the Cannes Film Festival this year.  Does that just mean its not good after films like “The Great Gatsby” opened last year’s fest?

The Directors Guild of America awarded their winner this past weekend in Alfonso Cuaron.  We have a lengthy discussion regarding what it could mean for “Gravity” in general to win the DGA.  Also, what does it mean for “12 Years a Slave” and “American Hustle?”  We are full of Oscar statistics to back up our scenarios.  YOU definitely want to give a listen.

Finally, we have Academy Idol Top 6 results.  With films “12 Years a Slave,” “Before Midnight,” “Blue is the Warmest Color,” “Gravity,” “Her,” and “Short Term 12,” the race for the seventh season winner is on.  The results MAY shock you.
