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.

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