In this new Oscar podcast, Erik, Kenneth, Matt M and Peter discuss where Selma and Unbroken are in the race. Have they fallen? Are they steady? With a handful of AwardsWatch members having just seen the first and only Selma screening, there’s lots to tell and lots to talk about.
We also take a crack at the juicy Best Actor category, overflowing with potential contenders with Michael Keaton in Birdman, Eddie Redmayne in The Theory of Everything, Jack O’Connell in Unbroken and Sony Pictures Classics‘ dilemma of too many players. Of course, we also talk about Best Actress and just how locked Julianne Moore is for Still Alice.
Later we talk about the resurgence of Into the Woods and its Best Picture chances and ponder some of the documentary and foreign language film contenders.
