Listen to (and share) episode 49 of our audio podcast Deadline Awards Watch With Pete Hammond. Deadline’s awards columnist talks with host David Bloom about last weekend’s big Deadline event, The Contenders, including behind-the-scenes conversations with T-Bone Burnett and Oscar Isaac on Inside Llewyn Davis; the passion that the late Laura Ziskin brought to getting The Butler made even as she was nearing death; Jonas Cuaron on levitating Gravity into a hit; and Robert Redford’s heavy breathing as dialogue in All Is Lost.

We’ll also talk about the line between drama and comedy in this awards season, and what it might mean for Golden Globes nominations for performers such as Vince Vaughn, who brings the comedic cargo to Delivery Man.

Finally, we’ll get Pete’s take on this week’s new movie releases, including the massive Marvel superhero sequel Thor: The Dark World, possible awards contender The Book Thief and dystopian thriller How I Live Now.
