Deadline Awards Watch 74 – ‘Mr. Turner’ Wows Podcast

By David Bloom, Pete Hammond

In this week’s podcast, Deadline Awards Columnist Pete Hammond and host David Bloom catch up the latest news from the just-opened Cannes Film Festival, where Pete and the rest of the Deadline team are busy covering the first days of the annual glam fest and the deals and parties behind the glitz. Grace of Monaco had a noisy and controversial opening, but Mike Leigh’s biopic of the great British painter Mr. Turner promises awards glory for the film and its star, Timothy Spall (perhaps best known as Peter Pettigrew/Wormtail in several of the Harry Potter films) following its Croisette debut. Pete and David also circle back to early in the week for Pete’s annual visit to Broadway, where he saw six Tony contenders in four days. He also gives his take on the week’s new movies, led by the monster mash of Godzilla and Jon Hamm’s Million Dollar Arm.
