In the absence of many of the regulars, including the usual recorder and editor Al Robinson, I put the pressure hosting the podcast on my own shoulders. And I was not going to miss this one. Accepting my invitations to offer their expert voices on the awards season as it stands, I am joined by Oscar season veterans Susan Wloszczyna of RogerEbert.com and Erik Anderson of AwardsWatch. I give them the majority of the floor space as we discuss the recent Screen Actors Guild nominations, touch on the Golden Globes and critics awards, the current state of the Oscar race, and where it might be heading as we head towards the close of the calendar year. Have a listen, and hit the comments down below.
