Deadline Awards Watch podcast 56In this special holiday edition of our Deadline Awards Watch podcast, Awards Columnist Pete Hammond talks with Tom Hanks and Barkhad Abdi about the making of Captain Phillips with director Paul Greengrass. Pete also talks with Taylor Swift, the Grammy-winning singer-songwriter behind “Sweeter Than Fiction,” the theme song of One Chance, about writing for films and her own budding acting career. If you didn’t make the in-theater screenings for these films, hearing Pete’s Q&As is almost like being there — particularly if you’re an awards voter busily working through a big DVD pile of awards contenders this holiday week. Also in this episode, Pete talks with host David Bloom about all the newly debuted films jamming this week’s box office.
