Deadline Awards Watch 67 – The CinemaCon Wrapup Podcast

By Pete Hammond, David Bloom

Deadline Awards Watch ep 67In this week’s podcast, Deadline Awards Columnist Pete Hammond returns to the mike after a post-Oscar break to talk with host David Bloom about the just-ended CinemaCon gathering in Las Vegas. While all the studios used the confab to tout their hottest upcoming projects to theater operators, the longtime head of the National Association of Theater Owners touched off controversy with head-scratching comments about not watching Best Picture Oscar winner 12 Years A Slave on the big screen. Pete and David also discuss whether, in the wake of Josh Charles’ abrupt departure from The Good Wife, having your character killed off a hit TV show can be a shortcut to the Emmy red carpet. Finally, Pete gives his take on the weekend’s notable movie debuts, led by Darren Aronofsky’s audacious take on the Genesis story Noah.
