Listen to (and share) episode 39 of our audio podcast Deadline Awards Watch, With Pete Hammond. Deadline’s awards columnist talks with host David Bloom from the Telluride Film Festival, which opened today and will feature a lot of awards contenders; Pete’s last-minute picks for Primetime Emmy voting that closes Friday; and a smart use of home-video releases for The Place Beyond The Pines and Mud as they try to remind voters not to forget them in the coming deluge of Oscar screeners. Pete also recommends several recent specialty releases led by the smart Short Term 12 and Wong Kar Wai’s unusual take on the martial arts film The Grandmaster.
