PGA and WGA Nominees; Surprise Hits at the Box Office
Listen to/Watch entire show:
Matt Holzman sits in for Kim Masters who's on vacation. He and John Horn discuss the Writers Guild Awards nominations and those of the Producers Guild Awards. Horn bets that the PGA list of best pictures could be predictive of the Oscars. They also discuss the surprise box office success of little movies like True Grit, Black Swan and The King's Speech. These movies are doing well largely based on word of mouth not splashy marketing campaigns.
