Oscars

This week's episode of Screen Talk is brought to you by Indiewire and Time Warner Cable's Awards Season Spotlight.

You might have heard about the Oscar nominations this week. They're kind of a big deal. At Indiewire, we've been anticipating these results for months. Now that they've arrived, however, the real work begins: Who's really a frontrunner? Who got snubbed? What snuck into the race—and what snuck out? And let's not forget the touchy subject of diversity or lack thereof.

In this week's episode of Screen Talk, co-hosts Eric Kohn and Anne Thompson are joined by managing editor Kate Erbland to discuss the newly unveiled nominations and share some of their favorite results. They conclude with a hypothetical: If you could force the result of just one category, what would you do? Share your own thoughts in the comments.
