Thompson on Hollywood

It was great to see some new faces on Charlie Rose Tuesday night analyzing the Oscar nominations. Along with usual suspect A.O. Scott (critic for the NYT and At the Movies), Rose interviewed perky Columbia prof Annette Insdorf and two on-line critics, Louise Brooks-lookalike Dana Stevens (Slate) and Salon's red-maned Stephanie Zacharek.

Surprise: they like critics' fave The Hurt Locker better than anything else, and want Kathryn Bigelow to win.
