This 53rd Oscar Podcast, the first of the 2017-2018 season, former Gold Rush Gang member Peter and I break down the main contenders right now and who could be in the future.
With CinemaCon last week, we got some insight on a few high-profile Oscar contenders like The Greatest Showman, Suburbicon, Downsizing, Wonderstruck and Darkest Hour. On the flip side, we are still very much in the dark about other films like Kathryn Bigelow’s Untitled Detroit Riots Project, The Current War, The Post, and mother!
We talk about the impact, if any, the buzz for CinemaCon films will have on this month’s predictions and also dig deep into where things stand in a post-Moonlight Oscar world. Will the pendulum swing back to an OscarsSoWhite year?
Intro music: “Going Green”
Outro music: Thomas Newman’s “New York City By Day” from the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack of Desperately Seeking Susan
