Awards Radar Podcast #1: Welcome and Enjoy the Mess!

As promised, we are delighted to launch into orbit the Awards Radar Podcast. In each episode, Editor Joey Magidson (that’s me!) will be joined by some of the staff of Awards Radar to talk about the latest in film, television, and entertainment in general. The show will obviously have an awards season slant to it, but we won’t forget about other movies and shows, that’s for sure!

Starting things off, I’m joined by Myles Hughes and Steven Prusakowski to talk about a few Oscar categories, take a question from a reader (and now hopefully listener), and mix in as much silliness as possible. With it being almost Halloween and election season, we have some bonus movie recommendations to share as well, so listen for those…

Enjoy episode one of the podcast and be sure to let us know your thoughts!

“Wait, are you telling me the gorilla wasn’t real in Greyhound?”

“No, that’s Greyback.”

Nowhere else on the internet will you find the razor-sharp gorilla humor that Awards Radar has made it its lifelong mission to provide. 4 stars.

Also, I think you misplaced your Saw podcast where the rest of the Comedy Central Roast of Alison Lohman was supposed to be.

Thanks for answering my questions, and I’ll be sure to submit more in future. That was a very entertaining episode.

(Fun fact: Cinephile Showdowns were originally going to be called Filmaholic Face-offs. Back in 2015 when Clayton originally asked that I come up with a name for the either/or game, I offered him the choice between Cinephile Showdown and Filmaholic Face-off and he opted for the former. I could probably still come up with a catchier name than the latter, but since doing so would require 10 years and thousands of dollars for the necessary research, I think that would be a decent new name for it. I am of course open to other ideas.)

We certainly aim to please. Recording the Saw podcast on Sunday, BTW.

Glad you enjoyed!

Filmaholic Face-Off works for me, if you’re cool with it. Long as you keep submitting, we’ll be thrilled.



Written by Steven Prusakowski

Steven Prusakowski has been a cinephile as far back as he can remember, literally. At the age of ten, while other kids his age were sleeping, he was up into the late hours of the night watching the Oscars. Since then, his passion for film, television, and awards has only grown. For over a decade he has reviewed and written about entertainment through publications including Awards Circuit and Screen Radar. He has conducted interviews with some of the best in the business - learning more about them, their projects and their crafts. He is a graduate of the RIT film program. You can find him on Twitter and Letterboxd as @FilmSnork – we don’t know why the name, but he seems to be sticking to it.
