The Academy Awards are coming up this Sunday night.  The King’s Speech, The Social Network, 127 Hours, Black Swan, The Fighter and The Kid’s Are All Right are all vying for best picture.  Best actor nominees include Colin Firth, Jesse Eisenberg, and James Franco.  And for best actress — Nicole Kidman, Annette Bening, and Natalie Portman are in the running.  This hour, we’ll talk about this year’s Oscar nominees with film critics STEPHANIE ZACHAREK from Movieline and TY BURR from The Boston Globe.  What’s your pick for best picture, best actor or actress?  And are there movies that you think the Academy snubbed?  Join us to dish about the best and worst films of 2010.
