Welcome to the Awards Circuit podcast titled “CIRCUIT BREAKER!,” a weekly podcast from AwardsCircuit.com featuring host Clayton Davis along with panelists Sam Coffey, Mark Johnson, Joey Magidson, and Karen Peterson. We discuss movies, television and all the awards shows that need predicting. New episodes are released every Monday.

Find us on Twitter at @Circuit_Pod, email us at [email protected], and submit your comments and questions at the bottom of the episode.

On the agenda:

  • Happy New Year!  Was 2017 a good or bad year for the movies?
  • Oscar voting begins on Jan. 5 and we give a few suggestions for what AMPAS should check out before turning in their ballots.
  • We’re kicking off an Op-Ed series from the award contenders themselves and we read the entry by Virgil Williams, the co-writer of Netflix’s “Mudbound,” who is in the running for Adapted Screenplay.
  • We offer up Circuit Considerations, which officially kicks off later this month.
  • Talking about Ridley Scott’s “All the Money in the World” and the chances for Michelle Williams and Christopher Plummer.
