Awards Radar Podcast #16: Joey, Myles, Ryan, and Steven Speculate about Best Actress

Welcome back to 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!

For episode number sixteen, I was joined once again by podcast regulars Myles Hughes and Steven Prusakowski, plus pseudo-regular Ryan McQuade. This time around, we hit on a few different topics, including Carey Mulligan, the Critics Choice Super Awards, and the Best Actress race. Specifically, we look into the possibility that the Actress lineup could feature three women of color (Viola Davis, Andra Day, and Zendaya). Plus, we continue to run a few recurring gags into the ground. If you enjoy the teasing of Myles and Steve, let us know. If it’s getting to be too much…well, let us know too. No promises, though!

I hope you all enjoy the sixteenth episode of the Awards Radar Podcast. As always, feel free to revisit the previous dozen installments by clicking the Podcast tab on the top of the page. Plus, as recently mentioned, you can now listen to us on Apple Podcasts (iTunes), Spotify, and other platforms. We even record a terrible commercial to share that news. More to come each week!

  1. No wrong answers here.

    Fargo or Trainspotting
    Good Will Hunting or LA Confidential
    Big Lebowski & A Simple Plan
    American Beauty or The Insider
    Eyes Wide Shut or Magnolia

    • we recorded earlier today, so we’ll try to remember this for next week, but just in case…

      Good Will Hunting
      A Simple Plan
      American Beauty
      Magnolia (the hardest choice)

  2. As Best Actress stands right now there are 6 candidates for 5 slots : Davis, Day, Kirby, McDormand, Mulligan, and Zendaya. Who misses? At first I thought it would be Mulligan (sobs) but my goodness does she have momentum right now. I am starting to feel it could be Kirby. I thought she was fantastic but it is a much more internal performance than people were expecting.

    • Andra Day is far less of a contender than you think. She’s good, but the movie is by far the worst of those in contention, and that will hurt. Anyone outside of probably McDormand can miss though…
