Circuit Breaker Episode 35: Oscar Narrative Preview, ‘Beauty and the Beast,’ and Reader Questions


Welcome to the Awards Circuit podcast titled “CIRCUIT BREAKER!,” a weekly podcast from featuring host Clayton Davis along with panelists Sam Coffey, Mark Johnson and Joey Magidson. 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:

  • We take a look at the narratives that can play out for some veteran actors, such as Michelle Pfeiffer, Annette Bening, Kristin Scott Thomas, Gary Oldman and more.
  • We take plenty of questions from our readers about the season and some of the films of the year so far, including trailers.
  • “Beauty and the Beast” opened in theaters to an impressive box office. Can this point towards some Oscar attention in the technical races, including for Visual Effects?
