Oscar Podcast #57: Entering Awards Season Without a Frontrunner

It’s the first Oscar podcast after the big summer film festivals – Venice, Telluride and Toronto – and usually by now we have a frontrunner. But not this year.

Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water won the Golden Lion at Venice and Martin McDonagh’s Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri won the People’s Choice Award at Toronto. Both are from Fox Searchlight, but who will they favor in this fall and winter’s awards race?

I am joined on Oscar Podcast #57 by Gold Rush Gang member Jason Osiason and Matt Dinn, who both attended Toronto this year and give their thoughts on personal favorites like I, Tonya, Lady Bird and The Florida Project.

Next up is the New York Film Festival which will give us our first looks at Last Flag Flying and Wonder Wheel.

This podcast runs 1h53m

Intro: “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” official trailer B

Outro: “New York City By Day” by Thomas Newman from the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack of Desperately Seeking Susan

About Erik Anderson

Erik blames his mother for his love of all things Oscar, having watched them together since he opened his eyes. They also watched Miss Universe religiously every year (the pageantry!) and Erik came to the conclusion that the combination of these two things ultimately led him down the path to obsessing about awards and ACTRESSING. He began at GoldDerby, led by Tom O’Neill and then migrated over to Oscarwatch (now AwardsDaily), headed up by Sasha Stone before breaking off to create AwardsWatch. He is a member of the International Cinephile Society, GALECA (The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics), the International Press Academy and is the founder/owner of AwardsWatch.
