In this week’s podcast, Deadline Awards Columnist Pete Hammond and host David Bloom look at the impact of those all-over-the-map BAFTA Awards, which gave Gravity lots of love but handed 12 Years A Slave two important wins.
They also look at what questions are being asked by Fox Searchlight’s Oscar campaign for 12 Years, which declares that “it’s time,” and whether it may also be time for Oscar to hand a statue to Leonardo DiCaprio for The Wolf of Wall Street or to score composer Alexandre Desplat for Philomena.
Pete also gives his take on the weekend’s notable movie debuts, including In Secret, the “period noir” adaptation of a Emile Zola novel, and two Oscar nominees: Hayao Miyazaki’s animated The Wind Rises and Palestine’s foreign-language candidate Omar.
