It’s a new Oscar season (yes, in April) and we’re back with the Awardswatch Oscar Podcast. This year saw some shakeup in the Gold Rush Gang and I welcome the return of Long Pham and congratulate newcomer Adam Norbury to the group.
In this first podcast we talk about (very) early ‘frontrunners’ like Carol, Joy and The Danish Girl as well as explore possible nominations for The Revenant‘s Leonardo DiCaprio, Demolition‘s Jake Gyllenhaal and Me and Earl and they Dying Girl‘s Olivia Cooke.
We also look at the recent announcement that AMPAS’s Board of Governors might be considering a return to a 5-nominee slate for Best Picture and how we feel that’s going to shake down as well as our personal opinions on it.
This is a short podcast (1hr 15m-ish), a record for the Awardswatch Oscar Podcast. But don’t get used to it. It’s early.
