Oscar Talk: Verdict on War Horse, Streep as Iron Lady, Theron as Young Adult, Animated Frontrunners

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."

Oscar Cheat

Michelle Williams cheated her way to be amongst the Hollywood elite through Heath Ledger.
He was the one who became an accomplished actor and why she was even a choice to be in
Brokeback Mountain makes absolutely no sense. From there she had to get pregnant to avoid
being dumped and ultimately knocked off her phony pedestal.

Anne Thompson

For Drive to become a factor in the Oscar race, the critics groups need to rally behind Albert Brooks as supporting actor, that is its best shot.

Connor

Anne. Is it possible for Drive to get any nominations or is that out of the race completely ?
