How the Toronto Film Festival Became the Starting Gun of Awards Season

After the rush of red carpets, interviews, photo shoots, parties, premieres, more parties, and a few hours spent in the dark actually watching movies, what have we learned from the Toronto International Film Festival? On this week’s Little Gold Men podcast, Mike Hogan, Katey Rich, and Richard Lawson gather in studio to talk about the highlight’s of this year’s fest, which when the episode was recorded on Monday was barely even halfway through. Still, there was tons to discuss, from the rave reviews for Lady Bird and Call Me By Your Name to the tough response to George Clooney’s Suburbicon, to, inevitably, the awards buzz surrounding people like Gary Oldman and Jessica Chastain. (For much more on that, you can read Richard and Katey’s complete rundown of all the awards chatter from the festival.)

This week’s episode also features a conversation with Rob Kraszewski and Geoff Macnaughton, hosts of the TIFF Long Take podcast, to offer some insight on what it’s like to be inside the Toronto International Film Festival, and how much attention they pay to the awards talk that inevitably becomes a major part of the event they spend the entire year planning. Spoiler alert: they’re as excited when films really take off as we are.
