On this week's Oscar Talk podcast, Kris Tapley and I assess the impact of the New York Film Critic Circle and National Board of Review results. We also look at where "Django Unchained" and "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey," are likely to land in the Oscar race. And we agree that with the new documentary rules, the Academy doc branch did a good job with their shortlist of 15. We pick likely frontrunners.

Here's the podcast, which is also on iTunes. Next week: LA Film Critics, SAG, Golden Globes, and Animation.

    The Sessions losing steam? It never had any steam to begin with except from this site. Beasts of the Southern Wild has passionate followers in AMPAS contrary to what Anne Thompson believes.

    It’s interesting that some people see Lincoln as the frontrunner. In a way it makes sense, though. As the Academy has chosen the good-feel movie the last two years (King’s Speech, the Artist), it only seems natural if they want to pick a more serious candidate this year.

    Looking forward to see Jean Dujardin present the best actress category!
