This week on The Collision, we talk about the 2013 Oscar Race as it stands at November. Considering the two possible contenders that have yet to premiere–The Wolf of Wall Street and American Hustle–we look at the current frontrunners for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay (Original and Adapted), Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, and Best Supporting Actress. We also point out some smaller films we hope the Oscars won’t overlook. As always, we finish up with our recommendations.
