On this week's Oscar Talk Podcast, Kris Tapley and I discuss live-action and documentary shorts as well as the documentary feature race. We look at the influence of last weekend's BAFTAs and USC Scripters Awards, and talk a few too-close-to-call categories: Steven Spielberg or Ang Lee for Best Director? Jennifer Lawrence or Emmanuelle Riva for Best Actress? Supporting actor, cinematography and production design are also in the mix.

Next week: We make our final predictions!

The podcast is also on iTunes.

    I love how EVERY WEEK Anne tells Kris that "Argo cannot win [insert precursor award that Argo is about to take]." Seriously Anne, go back and listen to the past few podcasts for a bit of humble pie. There's no shame in getting an Oscar prediction wrong, but the way you talk down to Kris each week -- "I've talked to Academy members/You get too carried away!" -- really makes you look even more foolish when Argo did take the PGA (which you said it wouldn't), the SAG Ensemble (which you said it wouldn't) and the WGA (which you said it wouldn't). Kris doesn't get "carried away" nearly as much as you speak in certitudes for things that aren't certain. Maybe next time, try leaving room for the possibility that you might be wrong. It will make you seem less foolish when everything you said DEFINITELY WOULD NOT HAPPEN actually happens.
