The race for the Academy Awards, Golden Globes and other recognition as the film world's best compete for the highest honors. Longtime Hollywood watchers John Horn and Kyle Buchanan talk about the week's developments, talk to leading actors, directors and filmmakers and let you in on insider gossip, confer with other awards-season pundits, and track industry buzz to figure out who's up, who's down, and who's currently leading the race for a coveted awards.
The dynamic co-hosts of The Awards Show Show podcast put all their analytical awards power into making final Oscar predictions before the actual nominees get announced by the Academy next week. Kyle Buchanan of vulture.com and John Horn of theframe.org debate the likely picks weighing their hopes with pragmatism. Who from "Hidden Figures" will get the nod? Can Annette Bening get in on that Best Actress race with "20th Century Women?" Will the Academy nominate old favorites like Meryl Streep and Martin Scorsese? And how many movies will make it into the Best Picture category? Get The Awards Show Show podcast on iTunes: http://bit.ly/1YjG3RZ
Andrew Garfield joins co-hosts Kyle Buchanan and John Horn to discuss "Silence" and "Hacksaw Ridge," but also to dive candidly into our cultural moment. What does he really think of "this sick man" Donald Trump, and what was it like to experience Meryl Streep's Golden Globes speech in the room when it happened? Before that expansive conversation, John and Kyle discuss the Globes and the nominations out of the Producer's Guild (PGA) and BAFTA. Get The Awards Show Show podcast on iTunes: bit.ly/1YjG3RZ
It’s our first show of the new year, and boy do we have a lot to talk about! The Writers Guild of America announced its nominees for best drama, comedy and documentary screenplays this week. Hosts John Horn of The Frame and Kyle Buchanan of Vulture.com try and read the WGA tea leaves for predictions. Plus, this weekend’s Golden Globes are sneaking up quickly — John just can’t wait. Oscar noms are still a few weeks away, but do we really live in a world where Mel Gibson actually has a shot at a best director nod for ‘Hacksaw Ridge”? Since there’s always a surprise or snub that happens the morning of the Oscar noms, Kyle and John try and predict the possible let downs(can 20th Century Women make the cut?) and the shockers (Does Deadpool have a chance?).
#Oscarssowhite changed the conversation around the awards season and Hollywood generally. April Reign, the creator of that hashtag joins The Awards Show Show co-hosts Kyle Buchanan of Vulture.com and John Horn of theframe.org. While 2016 had some films by and starring African Americans she cautions people who want to "cancel" #OscarsSoWhite and she asks where are the films the reflect the Latino experience? Where are the Asian American-Pacific Islander filmmakers? Where are the LGBTQIA rom-coms? Why not have an Asian-American James Bond? Or a disabled superhero? April Reign stresses that #Oscarssowhite is about all "marginalized communities" both on and behind the camera. Get The Awards Show Show podcast on iTunes: http://bit.ly/1YjG3RZ
