In case you hadn’t heard, I was the guest on AwardCircuit’s Power Hour this week.  We discussed the Best Actress and supporting actress race.  Also, you can hear me weekly on the Oscar Poker podcast with Jeff Wells and Phil Contrino. This week’s guest was Variety’s Jeff Schneider.

Meanwhile, Nathaniel has decided to put the Anne vs. Amy dynamic up to his readers up for discussion.  Both actresses continually turn in brilliance performances. They both surprise at every turn. Hathaway, to my mind, takes bigger risks (and therefore can sometimes fail harder), while Adams is more consistently good.  Check it out.
