Join Janet Maslin and Mark Harris for what’s always a lively, opinionated discussion, as they talk about this year’s slate of Academy Award nominations. There’ll be plenty of clips, history, gossip, and inside info.
Q&A Mark Harris and Janet Maslin. Mark Harris is an uncannily knowledgeable “Oscarologist.” He writes about the Academy Awards in Entertainment Weekly and the blogGrantland. His noted 2009 book, Pictures at a Revolution: Five Movies and the Birth of the New Hollywood, is the epic story of the five films nominated for the 1967 Academy Awards. His latest book is Five Came Back: A Story of Hollywood and the Second World War. JBFC President Janet Maslin has more than a few Oscar predictions, opinions, and anecdotes of her own. She interviewed Tom Hooper (The King’s Speech), Danny Boyle(Slumdog Millionaire), Ang Lee (Brokeback Mountain), and Clint Eastwood (Million Dollar Baby), at the JBFC just before each was awarded the Academy Award for Best Director.
