Listen to (and share) episode 52 of our audio podcast “Deadline Awards Watch, with Pete Hammond.”
Deadline’s awards columnist talks with host David Bloom about the Independent Spirit Awards nominations, which feature plenty of Oscar contenders, and perhaps not enough truly spirited indie films; a Q&A with Oscar Isaac of Inside Llewyn Davis, which picked up several of those Spirit Award nods; and a splashy first public screening for David O. Russell’s latest awards season entry, American Hustle, featuring top-notch performances — particularly by Jennifer Lawrence.
They also talk about Oscar rules changes that could make a difference for better known films in the foreign-language and animation categories, and a Golden Globes rule decision that leaves one fantastic disembodied voice just plain dissed.
Finally, we’ll get Pete’s take on this week’s new movies, including old-school crime drama Homefront, with horror film Oldboy. They also discuss Black Nativity, a holiday musical with yet another fine ensemble cast of African-American actors led this time by Oscar winners Forrest Whitaker and Jennifer Hudson, part of an unusually large spate of successful, often critically lauded films targeting black audiences over the past few months.
