On this week's Oscar Talk, Kris Tapley and I weigh in on Steven Spielberg's 'Lincoln." The movie is restrained, and beautiful, and deeply moving, and Daniel Day-Lewis carries the day as America's 16th president pushing thorugh the 13th amendment to ban slavery.

On this week's Oscar Talk, Kris Tapley and I weigh in on Steven Spielberg's 'Lincoln." The movie is restrained, and beautiful, and deeply moving, and Daniel Day-Lewis carries the day as America's 16th president pushing thorugh the 13th amendment to ban slavery. Picture, director, adapted screenplay, cinematography, art direction, costumes, score, actor, supporting actress and actor--Sally Field and Tommy Lee Jones will also factor--you name it.

We also discuss the New York Film Festival closing night film, Bob Zemeckis's "Flight," starring Denzel Washington, as well as the Gotham nominations. And we dig into the best supporting actress category led by Helen Hunt of "The Sessions."

We also address whether "The Master" star Joaquin Phoenix's statements about the Oscars being "bullshit" hurt his chances at a best actor nod?

Here's the podcast.
