On this week's Oscar Talk, Kris Tapley and I revisit Thursday night's Critics Choice Movie Awards, and predict whether the Globes and Oscars will repeat the same winners. We update the latest news on Michael Moore's reform of the Oscar Documentary Rules, Pros and Cons, as well the DGA doc nominations and Cinema Eye Honors.

We look at the rise of David Fincher and "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo," as well as Gary Oldman and "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy," and question where Steven Spielberg and 'War Horse' go from here.

And we give a preview of the upcoming Golden Globes weekend festiviities.
