After months of anticipation, the 2017 Oscar nominations are here, with plenty of surprises and snubs to discuss. While Michael Shannon made the cut and Amy Adams didn’t, there’s a lot more to explore at this juncture than just the basics: Can A24 mount a campaign for “Moonlight” that could put it ahead of “La La Land”? What’s got the edge in the documentary race? And who has the edge with the steak-eaters?

These are some of the talking points in the second of this week’s Screen Talk episode. But first, Eric Kohn and Anne Thompson get together at the Kickstarter house for a live recording to discuss Sundance buzz and explain why we’re witnessing one of the healthiest marketplaces in years. Check out all our Sundance coverage here.
