Movie critics were surprised when Ben Affleck wasn't nominated for a Best Director Oscar. Will his film "Argo" be vindicated with other awards on Sunday? Will the story of the killing of bin Laden or the tale of the president who saved the U.S. from being split in two take home Best Picture? We talk with a panel of film critics in advance of this weekend's Academy Awards about their favorite (and least favorite) of the nominees.

Host: Michael Krasny

Guests:

  • Leonard Maltin, film critic, historian, and host of Maltin on Movies on the Reelz Channel; the 2013 edition of Leonard Maltin’s movie guide is now in stores
  • Sura Wood, freelance arts journalist and film critic for publications including Hollywood Reporter, San Francisco Arts Monthly and the San Jose Mercury News
  • Ty Burr, film critic for the Boston Globe and author of the recent book "Gods Like Us: On Movie stardom and Modern Fame"
