Awards Circuit Power Hour Episode 97: Emmy Drama Actress, Cancelled Shows, and the New Star Wars Cast


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

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms of our readers (and the ones who read the site).  We have a quick but informed agenda for you this week.

We kick things off going through the television schedule.  What shows SURPRISINGLY got renewed and which got cancelled?

We have a very in-depth talk about the Lead Actress in a Drama race at the Emmys.  Some have some problems with the order of the predictions that were recently revealed.  Others agree just fine.

After going through the big news stories of the week, we reflect on some of the comedy performances that Oscar snubbed.  Some of the staff have some cool mentions.

The new Star Wars cast was announced and we talk about each one and what they can bring to the table.
