It’s Episode 29 of In the Mood for Podcast, a British-based film podcast hosted by Calum Reed of Ultimate Addict and Pete Sheppard of In the Mood for Blog. This week we give our reaction to the Golden Globe and SAG nominations, assessing the races as they stand. We find our patience severely tested by Peter Jackson’s epic first installment of the Hobbit Trilogy, the first of which, “An Unexpected Journey,” fails to be a tale of the unexpected. We catch up with the animated “Rise of the Guardians,” but Santa and the Tooth Fairy may not make the ideal dream team for one of us. And while Kristin Scott-Thomas may find herself the only performer in “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen” without a nomination this week, she may at least take consolation in the fact that she can still rock a designer gown. She takes on the luscious Ludivine Sagnier in trashy french flick “Love Crime”
