The 90th annual Oscars® are set for this Sunday, March 4th at the Dolby Theatre here in Los Angeles, but before you head to your Oscar parties and fill out your ballot, tune in to hear AirTalk’s 16th annual Academy Awards Preview Show.
Larry Mantle, all nine of our FilmWeek critics, and over 1,000 die-hard FilmWeek fans packed into the historic Theatre at Ace Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles to review the nominees in the major Oscar categories. While there was more agreement among the critics than one might expect for categories like Best Actor and Best Actress, it’s going to be a wide open year for other categories like Best Picture.
Who are your favorites to win the Oscars this year? Were there any movies you felt got snubbed that you would have liked to see among the nominees?
