Circuit Breaker Episode 54: ‘mother!’ Trailer, Woody Harrelson, and the Summer Oscars

Welcome to the Awards Circuit podcast titled “CIRCUIT BREAKER!,” a weekly podcast from AwardsCircuit.com featuring host Clayton Davis along with panelists Sam Coffey, Mark Johnson, Joey Magidson, and Karen Peterson. 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 podcast@awardscircuit.com, and submit your comments and questions at the bottom of the episode.

On the agenda:

  • Talking about what our favorite summer movies are and what’s our one Oscar wish for one of the summer movies that include “Wonder Woman,” “The Big Sick,” Dunkirk,” and “Detroit.”
  • Do you want to see an Honorary Oscar for Andy Serkis in “War for the Planet of the Apes?”
  • The new trailer dropped for Darren Aronofsky’s “mother!” and we discuss its Oscar chances.  Can Jennifer Lawrence move her way to her fifth Oscar nomination and can Michelle Pfeiffer finally capture her due?
  • Going over the ACCA results once again to see what led the nomination tally.
  • Lionsgate’s “The Glass Castle” opened in theaters and didn’t perform too well with critics.  Does it still have a shot for Brie Larson and Woody Harrelson?
  • Caught up with “Kong: Skull Island” and discuss all its flaws.
  • We have a new Academy President and we discuss what could be in his and the organization’s future.
  • There’s a NYFF lineup and we discuss the films we’re looking forward to and what can make some noise.  This includes “Call Me By Your Name,” “Mudbound,” and “Ismael’s Ghosts.”
  • Thanks to questions we get into discussions about leading men in supporting categories and who can challenge Meryl Streep’s Oscar record.
