What Makes Oscar Buzz Last

This week brings the start of the New York Film Festival, and with it, three tentpole films angling for a spot in the awards derby: opening night selection Last Flag Flying, from Richard Linklater; centerpiece selection The Meyerowitz Stories: New and Selected, from Noah Baumbach, which already premiered at Cannes; and Wonder Wheel from Woody Allen, featuring an already-buzzed-about lead performance from Kate Winslet. It’s a great time to be a film fan, but a scary one for the people behind some of the year’s earlier critical hits; unless you‘re a megahit like Get Out and Dunkirk, how do you stay part of the conversation?

Well, you could send out screeners, which hopefuls like the documentary Kedi and the Sally Hawkins-Ethan Hawke indie Maudie have already done for certain critics and awards voters. On this week’s Little Gold Men podcast, Katey Rich, Richard Lawson, Mike Hogan, and Joanna Robinson take a look at the films that are working to stay in the race, from the aforementioned Get Out to smaller efforts like The Lost City of Z or even the summer indie success story The Big Sick. It’s not easy even for some new releases; over the weekend Stronger, which features a powerful lead performance from Jake Gyllenhaal, opened to anemic box office, which could make the months of awards campaigning ahead all the more challenging.

At the end of this week’s episode, Joanna and Richard discuss a film that is in no way hoping for awards, but has gathered a lot of attention anyway: last weekend’s box office hit Kingsman: The Golden Circle. What happens when there’s a movie you know you shouldn’t love . . . but kinda love anyway?
