On this 76th Oscar podcast I welcome Variety’s Deputy Awards and Features Editor Jenelle Riley, a first time guest, to discuss the upcoming Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild nominations for film.
While we don’t really get into line by line predictions, Jenelle and I dig into the recent National Board of Review and New York Film Critics Circle wins, including The Irishman breaking from the pack early, but also the stealth contenders we’re seeing come out of these announcements. Namely, Richard Jewell and Knives Out.
We talk a bit about potential ‘controversies’ this year but highlight and recognize that no amount of internet chatter keeps voters from voting what they want to vote for.
We close with a bit of hopedicting and, wonderfully, we have the same single pick. #NominateNaiNai
