Deadline Awards Watch With Pete Hammond, Episode 46

Listen to (and share) episode 46 of our audio podcast Deadline Awards Watch With Pete Hammond. Deadline’s awards columnist talks with host David Bloom about early awards frontrunner 12 Years A Slave, whose Michael Fassbender may snag an Oscar nomination despite his likely absence during the campaign months, and lead actor Chiwetel Ejiofor, who already is hitting the awards circuit ahead of the film’s debut this weekend. We also look at a very different kind of performance, Scarlett Johansson’s sterling voice work in Spike Jonze’s quirky Her and whether it can make Academy history; the AFI Fest snares a world premiere with Lone Survivor; and the Pen Center USA literary awards, where one winner’s work faced a noisy protest by her film’s editors.

Finally, we’ll get Pete’s take on this week’s very full slate of new movie releases, including Bill Condon’s nervy meditation on journalism and whistleblowers in the Internet age, The Fifth Estate; Robert Redford’s remarkable solo journey in All Is Lost; the surprisingly enjoyable action film Escape Plan, featuring great chemistry between Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone; and a remake of the horror classic Carrie, with Julianne Moore and Chloe Grace Moretz.
