Take Shelter Sony Pictures Classics
For this week's Oscar Talk, Kris Tapley and I checked our lists and made the tough decisions on what to include as our ten best for 2011. We agreed on one film only: Jeff Nichols' "Take Shelter," starring Michael Shannon and Jessica Chastain. Will it land any Oscar nominations? This week, perhaps refreshingly, that's not our primary focus.

Here's The Podcast.

    Have you guys seen The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo yet? I know Scott Rudin wants everything kept quiet until its release, but I'm not sure if I should see it....

    Why people make top ten lists in the beginning of December? Makes no sense.

  • Kristopher Tapley | December 9, 2011 10:12 PM

    Because everything has been screened.

    I think that Michael Shannon deserves a nomination.
