On this week's Oscar Talk Podcast, Kris Tapley and I do a roundup of where we are post-fall film festivals. "Gravity" and "12 Years a Slave" are at the top of the Oscar heap right now, with a batch of other contenders below, from "August: Osage County," "Dallas Buyers Club" and the Coens' latest, "Inside Llewyn Davis," to $100 million hit "The Butler." Will that movie last through the long haul? We remind that it is only September, people! (The Gurus O' Gold are still all over the place.)

Listen and weep.
