In this week’s Oscar Talk, Kris Tapley and I pore over the latest Guild nominations from the producers, writers and art directors. What do we decide? Maybe Steven Spielberg’s “War Horse” is weaker than we once thought, and David Fincher’s “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” is stronger. Does oft-ignored critics’ fave “The Tree of Life” still have an Academy shot? And we continue to debate Oscar prospects for sturdy comedy contender “Bridesmaids.” It’s popular, but will it go all the way?
And we make our fearless Directors Guild predictions–which may still not be the same as the final Oscar five. We’ll see how we did next week.
