Thompson on Hollywood

In this week's Oscar Talk podcast, Kris Tapley and I engage on several pressing Oscar fronts. We debate the impact of the Academy's new constraints on parties and Q & As and whether or not the Oscars should move up their date. We dig into several new films, Brad Pitt-starrer Moneyball and Cameron Crowe's Pearl Jam Twenty, which open this weekend, plus the upcoming Melancholia, starring Kirsten Dunst, Tinker Tailer Soldier Spy, starring the great Gary Oldman, and George Clooney's The Ides of March, starring the director opposite Ryan Gosling.

We look forward to one big movie that hasn't screened yet: Clint Eastwood's J. Edgar, whose new trailer went out this week featuring Leonardo DiCaprio as J. Edgar Hoover. We check on the still-slim Best Actor field, and wonder if Oldman, Clooney, Gosling, Pitt or DiCaprio will be contenders.

Plenty to chew on here.
