Podcast: Claudia Puig wonders if 'Babel' = 'Crash'

January 22, 2007 |  4:13 pm

Listen to my phone chat with USA Today film critic Claudia Puig, who sizes up the Oscar derby this way: "The thing that I think is wide open is the best picture category. What I think we're going to see this year is a greater divergence between best the picture category and the best director category. I see Scorsese winning for best director. I don't necessarily see 'The Departed' winning for best picture. There's momentum for 'Babel' (after the Golden Globes). If voters are still in that 'Crash' mindset, 'Babel' could be this year's 'Crash.'" LISTEN TO THE REST — CLICK HERE!
