With the big three fall film festivals Telluride,
Venice and Toronto behind us, the awards season is now moving full steam ahead. And even though it’s going to be nearly six months until the Oscars are handed out, pundits are already boosting frontrunners, dismissing other contenders, and arguably creating a narrative before one has taken shape.
For this episode of The Playlist podcast, Editor in Chief Rodrigo Perez, Managing Editor
Kevin Jagernauth, Features Editor Jessica Kiang and our Awards writer Oli
Lyttelton discuss the reductive nature of the awards season conversation that emerges from festivals, whether the size of TIFF can actually benefit smaller movies, and much more about what it means to cover the industry at this time of year.
