Oscar Talk: Animation, Directors, Michael Douglas, Wall Street, Alice in Wonderland, Fair Game

Kris Tapley of In Contention and I talk about some low-profile films that may not make it into the race–including Solitary Man, Welcome to the Rileys–and whether Michael Douglas has a chance. We rate the three strong Andrew Garfield performances of the year: Red Riding Trilogy, Never Let Me Go, The Social Network.

We ask, is it possible, with ten best picture nominees, for a lone director to get a nod when his (usually male, I know) film does not? Mike Leigh (Another Year) and Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan) are possibilities. We debate the animated top three: after Toy Story 3 and How to Train Your Dragon, will it be The Illusionist, or Despicable Me? We don’t think Disney’s campaign for Alice in Wonderland will yield more than well-deserved technical nods. We both like Fair Game, starring Sean Penn and Naomi Watts, but don’t see too much Oscar action for it.

You’re doing it again.

“Fair Game” stars, clearly, Naomi Watts and Sean Penn.

Why do you slight Watts again and alter the order?

I do not think you do a year of good performance
as solitary man and opportunism. but each with their opinion.
