Oscar Talk Episode Twelve: Nine, Invictus, The Lovely Bones

Oscar Talk Episode Twelve: Nine, Invictus, The Lovely Bones

In Contention‘s Kris Tapley and I have actually seen most of the Oscar movies now, and even though we’re not supposed to write about all of them yet, we do talk about the sexy musical Nine, Clint Eastwood’s Invictus and the mixed reaction to Peter Jackson‘s The Lovely Bones. We also get into the rising fortunes of Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds and the marketing behind the last movie to be unveiled in coming weeks, James Cameron’s Avatar.

Gary B is right. A lot of people are forgetting about District 9. I know I am. I made a real effort to forget about it, and it took me several days. Several long, painful days.


You guys are both really intelligent, articulate, and thoughtful individuals in your field who really provide some great insight into this award season. Great discussion.

Thanks, Anne and Kris for these Oscar Talks – they’re a real treat, and much more fun and informative than written reviews. Anne, your blog is required reading for anyone interested in the industry!


In next week’s Oscar Talk, could you please convince Mr. Tapley to drop that insufferable “K” from his first name.

Gary B
