Film Week on AirTalk sells-out the Egyptian Theater

Friday morning on “AirTalk,” we’ll broadcast our 10th annual “Film Week on AirTalk Academy Awards Preview.”  All eight of our critics were in fine form, alternately bashing and championing nominees in the major categories.

Prior to taping on Sunday afternoon, I asked our Egyptian audience whether anyone had attended all ten of our shows.  Remarkably, a couple of folks clapped their hands.  That’s real dedication.

I particularly look forward to this event, given that I spent my junior high and high school years living in Hollywood.  I’d walk by the Egyptian almost daily, and considered it one of the great theaters in the city.  Had you told me as a kid that I’d be hosting an annual event there, it would’ve blown my mind. 

If you haven’t been to the annual show, I hope you’ll join us next year.  We tape the weekend prior to each year’s Oscars ceremony.  If you’ve joined us in the past, I hope you’ll continue with us.
