There are still several months to go before the Oscar nominations arrive. However, with yesterday’s arrival of the nominations for the Gotham Independent Film Awards, the season is in full swing. As Screen Talk co-host Eric Kohn served on the selection committee for several categories, in this week’s episode, he shares some insight into the results; meanwhile, Anne Thompson examines whether or not the outcome could actually change anything about the Oscar race.

More specifically: Who isn’t gaining traction? The duo look at a couple of contenders already in theaters, some of which seem to be doing better than others.
