Awards Radar Podcast #106: Joey, Myles, and Steve Talk Oscar Category Placement News, the ‘Avatar’ Re-Release, and Play a New Game!

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 106, I’m joined by my co-hosts, Myles Hughes and Steve Prusakowski. This week, we talk about several new releases, including Avatar‘s remaster, as well as Don’t Worry Darling (reviewed here), plus the impending release of The Banshees of Inisherin (reviewed here). Then, we go into the recent Category placement news, centered on Michelle Williams competing in Best Actress for The Fabelmans (which I reviewed here) instead of Best Supporting Actress. Plus, we play a new game, which requires you all to vote on which one of our drafted awards players you’d most want to see. The drafts are at the bottom of the post, and the poll is on the home page. It’s all part of another very fun pod…

As always my friends and faithful listeners/readers, I do hope you all enjoy the latest episode of the Awards Radar Podcast, our 106th one to date (here’s to at least 100 more). Of course, feel free to revisit the previous installments by clicking the Podcast tab (here) on the top of the page. Plus, listen to us on Apple Podcasts (iTunes), Spotify, and other platforms. More to come each and every single week, so from the bottom of my heart, thank you for listening!
