Deadline Awards Watch 69 – Remembering Mickey Rooney Podcast

By Pete Hammond, David Bloom

Deadline Awards Watch ep 69In this week’s podcast, Deadline Awards Columnist Pete Hammond and host David Bloom talk about the highlights in this year’s TCM Classic Film Fest, which opens tonight with a beautifully restored version of the 1955 musical Oklahoma, among many other treasures. David and Pete also mark the passing of Mickey Rooney, whose film career spanned nearly nine decades before his death this week.

Pete also gives his take on the weekend’s notable movie debuts, led by two films featuring the strongest performances in years from Oscar winners Kevin Costner (in Draft Day) and Nicolas Cage (in Joe). Pete and David also talk about the weekend’s likely box-office champ, the animated sequel Rio 2, and a thoughtful revenge drama, The Railway Man featuring Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman.
