In this week's Oscar Talk podcast, Kris Tapley and I survey the field AFTER this week's awards voting from the New York Film Critics Circle, National Board of Review, Gothams and the Indie Spirit nominations
. We wonder, is Meryl Streep ahead of Viola Davis? Is Glenn Close still in contention for "Albert Nobbs"? Is Woody Allen's "Midnight in Paris" in trouble? Can "Ides of March" make a comeback? Is Martin Scorsese's "Hugo" heading for Top Five status? Or is "The Help"?
We review Cameron Crowe's hip but accessible "We Bought a Zoo." We are both seeing "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" Friday morning, so stay tuned.
