Oscar Talk: Ides of March's Clooney vs. Gosling vs. Hoffman, Supporting Categories

Thompson on Hollywood

Now that we’ve both seen George Clooney’s political thriller The Ides of March, Kris Tapley and I dig into not only Oscar prospects for that film, but the list of supporting players in contention for this year. We also debate the respective box office fates of Drive and Warrior as well as how success in theaters impacts a film’s awards chances. (CORRECTION: Yes, Clooney won best supporting actor for Syriana and not Good Night, and Good Luck.)

And what about the still unseen Oscar spoilers: J. Edgar, Young Adult, War Horse, The Iron Lady and Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, which boasts a new trailer this week? I’ll be flying to New York next week to check out My Week with Marilyn at the New York Film Festival.

Here’s the podcast.

Love your podcast with Kris. I have another question for you. Having seen The Ides of March what do you think of Ryan Gosling’s chance on a BA nod? I thought his Driver character was iconic, which is a shame that he probably won’t get much notice for that. With Clooney behind March do you think he has a shot at all or is he heading for a snub again.


Great podcast once again but George Clooney didn’t win for “Good Night and Good Luck” but for “Syriana”.
