On the episode’s agenda (recorded July 19, 2020):

  • It was sad times in awards and festival landscape as the 47th Telluride Film Festival was cancelled due to the pandemic. We share our thoughts and what this means for the upcoming Oscar season.
  • We lost outstanding talents such as Kelly Preston, Naya Rivera, and two giants in the civil rights movement as Congressman John Lewis and Minister C.T. Vivian left us.
  • Kate Winslet is the first to receive a tribute from a virtual festival as Toronto is bestowing the honor upon her, which bodes well for her chances for “Ammonite.”
  • Having an in-depth discussion of tearjerking films in the our lifetime, and even more specifically, opening sequences for movies.
  • We have lots of questions from our readers regarding predictions, films, and the best from directors.
