Guest: Sasha Stone, Awards Daily
Welcome back to Pop Culture Confidential and our 2016 Season! Awards season is in full frenzy and what better way to start the year than to predict the nominees for this year’s Oscars.
We last spoke to awards expert Sasha Stone, Awards Daily, after Telluride in September. Now we check in with Sasha and ask the big questions: Who are the frontrunners? What happened to the early buzz for Steve Jobs? Will Alicia Vikander receive two nominations? And much more!
In this episode we get all of Sasha’s Oscar nomination predictions for the six main categories before they are announced on January 14th. Let’s see if she is right!
Who do you think should be nominated? Tweet us your predictions to @podpopculture!
