Deadline’s awards columnist talks with host David Bloom about this week’s first batch of year-end film kudos, from the National Board of Review, New York Film Critics Circle and Film Independent’s Gotham Awards, as well as the Annie Award nominations for animation and the Oscar short list of candidates for documentary feature, and see if we can tease out trends or favorites that might impact the rest of awards season.
Pete also talks about the “rapturous” initial response at SAG screenings for The Wolf Of Wall Street, the on-again, off-again excessive tale of high-finance excess from Martin Scorsese that finally made it on screen this weekend for some awards voters.
Finally, we’ll get Pete’s take on Out Of The Furnace, Scott Cooper’s latest intense drama with a glittering cast chock full of prominent actors, and the only film debut opening wide in U.S. theaters this weekend.
