Kris Tapley and I go toe to toe in this week's post-Sundance, pre-PGA, SAG and DGA Oscar Talk.

Kris is sanguine about "Argo"'s PGA and Oscar chances, while I think "Life of Pi" and "Silver Linings Playbook" have more momentum; SAG could go for the latter in a big way, we agree.

We recap Sundance: Sony Pictures Classic pick-up "Before Midnight" is the only feature contender, we think; some of the terrific Sundance docs are bound to emerge as well.
