In the latest episode of The Screen Podcast, the team discusses the latest awards season developments including the Bafta longlists, the SAG award nominations and the Golden Globes. Plus, Sundance senior programmer John Nein offers his insights into this year’s festival.

Screen International editor Matt Mueller, chief film critic and reviews editor Fionnuala Halligan, and awards and box office editor Charles Gant take the temperature of the ongoing awards season. The Screen trio considers key talking points from the 2022 Bafta longlists, including a mainstream best film selection and a relatively weak showing for independent British films.

Also under discussion are the SAG Awards nominations, with no place for Kristen Stewart; and the first Golden Globes winners to be announced solely live on Twitter.

With Sundance Film Festival kicking off this Thursday, January 20, Halligan interviews Sundance senior programmer Nein about the upcoming event, films to watch, and the switch to a virtual edition for 2022.
