86th Academy Awards preview

    Listen

    Guests: Gary Kramer & Piers Marchant

    The 86th Academy Awards show is this Sunday, the academy members turned in their votes on Tuesday and the films nominated for best picture couldn’t be more varied in subject: Gravity, 12 Years a Slave and American Hustle. Ellen DeGeneres is hosting for the second time since 2007, following Seth MacFarlane’s controversial turn last year. As audiences at home and in the Dolby Theater will be watching Christian Bale, Amy Adams, and Steve McQueen anticipate their awards, many of us will be remembering the recent passing of film greats Philip Seymour Hoffman and Harold Ramis. We’ll get a 2014 Oscar Awards preview with film critics GARY KRAMER and PIERS MARCHANT.
