Because the film industry needs another podcast. But here's why AwardsBlend is different! The Oscar season lasts an eternity. Literally, the entire movie year is made up of films that could consider themselves to be awards contenders, as Jordan Peele's Get Out is a February release, James Mangold's Logan is a March release, and awards hopefuls make their debuts at Sundance, SXSW, Cannes and points in between all year long. You need a podcast that helps you keep everything straight. And that's where AwardsBlend comes in.
CinemaBlend Managing Editor Sean O'Connell, Fox 5 Washington D.C. Entertainment Reporter Kevin McCarthy and Fox 32 News Chicago Entertainment Reporter Jake Hamilton are seasoned veterans of the film and entertainment beat. All three are members of the Broadcast Film Critics Association. And they are long-time friends who spend way too of their own free time discussing movies -- usually on a text-message chain that keeps them busy for days. Well, they are taking their texts to the Podcast Airwaves at CinemaBlend, and this is their debut episode. AwardsBlend will be a LIVE Podcast that goes straight to YouTube. But it also will be available on various podcast apps and services. And it will lead right up to the Oscars... and beyond. Give the premiere episode a listen:
AwardsBlend will be your one-stop shop for Oscars and awards news all through the season, given to you by three knowledgeable, personable and, yes, geeky co-hosts.
