Oscars Podcast: Can you Identify the Traits of 'Oscar Bait?'

The bi-coastal film pod continues in 2015! In New York, Village Voice film editor Alan Scherstuhl, along with Voice film critic Stephanie Zacharek, connect via the magic of the Internet with LA Weekly film critic Amy Nicholson to discuss the nominations for this year's Academy Awards, announced on January 15. The trio attempt to settle once and for all what sorts of movies make the Academy salivate, while other seemingly great films go stale. As always, send barbs, jabs, claims or jokes to [email protected] and follow us on the Twitter at @voicefilmclub. Read all of our movie reviews, at dallasobserver.com/movies.
