Hear Me Talk Academy Awards Dish! Juicy And Fun Stuff!

Categories: Oscars

Oscar know-it-all Tom O'Neil asked me to chat with him on his site goldderby.com for updates on the Oscar race and how it's been morphing by the minute.

But it turned out to be just a trick to get me there so he could bitchslap me for my boring predictions!

I defend my lame yet somehow sensible choices, and once I manage to pull myself back together and restore some dignity, we also talk about:

The impact of Tommy Lee Jones' sour puss on the Globes. (Will it lead to an even more evil expression on Oscar night?)

Argo's ascendence (a case of sympathy for Ben or genuine admiration?)

The importance of the huggability factor for Oscar winners

Why Anne Hathaway is keeping a relatively low profile all of a sudden

And whether there could be a genuine shocker in the Best Actress category. We're talking a jawdropper.

Check out the podcast. It's a winner, baby.

My Voice Nation Help

Just finished listening to this--great interview!  You have a wonderful voice, Michael.  I had never heard it before.  As someone who likes gold derby and sends in their picks I will say right here that I think, coincidentally as we have just have celebrated Loretta Young's 100th birthday, Sally Field will pull a Loretta-like upset and beat Anne Hathaway for supporting actress.  If I'm wrong you can mock me till the cows come home but I'm sure that Sally will win.


I enjoyed this a lot--and learned too.
