In this month’s Oscar Talk, Kris Tapley of In Contention and I go over the Guild votes in advance of the Oscar nominations next week. Where are we? Is “American Hustle” the crowdpleaser with momentum to take this win? Are there enough passionate votes for “12 Years a Slave”?
Can “Gravity” stay in frontrunner contention? Or is “Captain Phillips” the stronger candidate? Are “Dallas Buyers Club” and “Philomena” the little indies that could? Did the “Wolf of Wall Street” debate help or hurt its Oscar chances?
We lay out where we see the top ten Best Picture contenders, for better or worse.
