Circuit Breaker Episode 63: Gun Shy Predictions, NYFF Closing, and Expulsion of Predators

KATEWINSLET WONDERWHEEL

CircuiBreaker Cover.jpg?zoom=2Welcome to the Awards Circuit podcast titled “CIRCUIT BREAKER!,” a weekly podcast from AwardsCircuit.comfeaturing 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:

  • We’re talking the closing of the New York Film Festival last week.  The East Coast got their first look at “Mudbound” from Dee Rees (where standout notices came for Garrett Hedlund) and “Wonder Wheel” from Woody Allen (getting a less than stellar reception though Kate Winslet seems intact).  Where is the Oscar landscape today?
  • Harvey Weinstein was expelled from the Academy.  We’re sharing our thoughts.
  • The Paul Thomas Anderson movie has a title (“Phantom Thread“) which has us talking about “The Post” and these still unseen contenders.
  • Small, new studios are trying to make a name for themselves.  We talk about who and what they have.
  • Is there a frontrunner and people are just too SCARED to say so?

Question for the next podcast: Do you think a sci-fi film will win Best Picture in the next decade or so, and what would it take for one to win?

Follow-up question, which genres/forms of film (i.e. including Documentary and Animated films) do you think will never win (or never again win) Best Picture?

Questions for the AW staff: 1) What was the reason that you became film lovers? What age and what movie made you passionate about the movies? 2) I am pleased that Donald Sutherland is receiving an Honorary Oscar this year. Since he is getting this award, are his chances for getting nominated/winning for The Leisure Seeker still possible? The only instances where someone won a competitive Oscar after they got the Honorary (in the past 50 years) were: Charlie Chaplin – Honorary Oscar 1971, Best Score for Limelight 1972 Henry Fonda – Honorary Oscar 1980. Best Actor for On Golden… Read more »

Was this the episode where they talked about the most disappointing films?

Spiderman 3. It was the first time I bought tickets in advance, using my hard-earned paper route money. I camped out at the theater with a friend. I was 14 — young enough to get truly excited for it, but old enough to realize how awful it was..
