In this week’s podcast, Deadline Awards Columnist Pete Hammond and host David Bloom assess the complicated relationship between Broadway and Hollywood after the Tony Awards snubbed several big film stars hoofing it on the hardwood. We also catch up on the latest additions to the Cannes Film Festival lineup, including classic films from Hitchcock and Capra and classic stars such as Deneuve and Loren. David and Pete also review the weekend’s notable movie debuts, led by The Amazing Spider-Man 2, already a hit overseas and headed to a box office win in the United States too, as well as the historical drama Belle, featuring a terrific performance from the memorably named Gugu Mbatha-Raw. Pete also talks about Kevin Spacey‘s latest adventure in modern film distribution, as he takes to the web to sell Now: In The Wings On A World Stage, a documentary about his performing Shakespeare on theaters on several continents.
