    Oscar Talk: Clooney Leads Best Actor Field, Davis Leads Best Actress, Carnage Non-Contender

    In this week's Oscar Talk podcast, In Contention's Kris Tapley and I debate Roman Polanski's NYFF-opener Carnage, which fails to improve on the play and is not going to be an Oscar contender, we agree, although I think it's an upscale crowd-pleaser. (My updated Oscar Chart is here.)
