Here’s proof of how befuddled and lost (and crazy) we Oscar pundits are right now. Watch Mike Hogan (Vanity Fair), Chris Rosen (Entertainment Weekly) and I squirm, fret, harrumph and giggle as we try to make bold Oscar and DGA predictions. But just when we talk ourselves into a seemingly sound pick, we talk ourselves out of it and fling our arms out in exasperation. Ha!
But, hey, it’s all fun to watch. Mike and Chris are veteran entertainers as pundits go. They team up together often to do their own Oscar podcast series (“Little Gold Men” – listen here) and I love joining them at Oscar derby time. They know the awards beat well.
