In this week's Oscar Talk podcast, In Contention's Kris Tapley and I discuss Steven Spielberg's "War Horse" and Phyllida Lloyd's "The Iron Lady," starring Meryl Streep as Margaret Thatcher, as well as Jason Reitman and Diablo Cody's "Young Adult," starring Charlize Theron and Patton Oswalt. We also plumb the heated race for Best Animated Feature, which is packed with sequels. We address why the documentary branch picks such strange "short lists." And we question the New York Film Critics Circle's pushed up voting date, which prevents them from seeing Stephen Daldry's "Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close."
