OSCAR TALK: Original/Adapted Screenplay (PODCAST)

Well folks, here we are at last! After months of high profile releases, critic and guild awards, and tons of speculation over nominees and potential winners, the awards season reaches its dramatic finish this Sunday with the best of the best, the 85th Annual Academy Awards. All season long we’ve been asking question after question – will Argo take Best Picture? Can anyone stop Daniel Day-Lewis and Anne Hathaway? Who will win Best Director? Will Tommy Lee Jones or Christoph Waltz take Best Supporting Actor? Will Seth MacFarlane be one of the funniest Oscar hosts? – and Sunday all our questions will be answered and a handful of actors and movies will join Oscar history along side some of the best movies ever made. To celebrate, our critics are breaking down the major categories all week long in a special series of podcasts we like to call, OSCAR TALK. With 5 days to go, join Zack Sharf, James Hausman, and Mike Murphy as they discuss which films should take Best Original and Adapted Screenplay, and then join in on the conversation with your Oscar predictions in the comments section. Who do you think will win? Let’s have an OSCAR TALK….
