Guests: Gregory Ellwood & Josefin Asplund
We are very excited that awards season is finally here! We speak to writer Gregory Ellwood about where we are in the Oscar race, and we speak to the Josefin Asplund – star of the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and the new season of Vikings.
If you’re like us, you’ve seen a lot of really, really good movies this year. So which ones will make the cut when it comes to the Oscar’s? Gregory Ellwood, co-founder of HitFix and writer for Variety and LA Times, covers the award season for theplaylist.net and awardaampaign.com. He joins us this week to discuss La La Land’s chances, if Casey Affleck will take Best Actor for his emotional performance in Manchester by the Sea, and much more.
And we speak to Josefin Aspund, who starred opposite Daniel Craig in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and in the Swedish film The Circle. She has now joined the fourth season of Vikings as the free spirited Astrid. We speak to Aspund about her career, her dreams to become a social worker AND a Hollywood star – and much more!
