'Life of Pi'
'Life of Pi'

Oscar Talk happened in Los Angeles this week, as Kris Tapley and I dissected the latest predictions from EW and The Gurus 'O Gold. Will "Argo" be able to keep its front-runner status as "Lincoln" and "Life of Pi" come on strong? Is "Silver Linings Playbook" all that it's cracked up to be? Or will it follow "The Master" as an actors' favorite? Can a scruffy indie like "Beasts of the Southern Wild" challenge heavyweight contenders like "Pi" and "Skyfall"?

We dig into the cinematography category, which is led by "Life of Pi," "Skyfall," "Lincoln," 70 mm "The Master" and "Django Unchained." And we havent even gotten to Rodrigo Prieto's "Argo."
