OSCAR SEASON AT THE AMERICAN CINEMATHEQUE 2016
Be a Part of the Live Audience!
AirTalk's Oscars® FilmWeek at the Egyptian 2016
Presented by KPCC FilmWeek & American Cinematheque

Host Larry Mantle and KPCC FilmWeek critics will congregate to campaign for and criticize the 88th Academy Awards nominees in front of a live audience at the historic Egyptian Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard.

They will duke it out over Best Picture nominations that include box-office hits such as "The Martian" and "Mad Max: Fury Road," the polarizing feature "The Revenant," the heavy indie "Room" from young distributor A24, and more.

The critics will bring their deep knowledge of films to weigh all the major categories and overlooked gems including the highly debatable Original Screenplay noms of "Straight Outta Compton," "Spotlight," "Inside Out," "Ex Machina," and "Bridge of Spies."

Will they rally around Leonardo DiCaprio and Sylvester Stallone for overdue Oscars? Will critics Amy Nicholson and Charles Solomon come to blows over "Anomalisa?"

Find out on Sunday, February 21 at 1pm.

Audience members will be part of the live audience for this radio program that will be broadcast the following Friday.

Larry Mantle will be joined by FilmWeek critics:
Justin Chang, Film Critic for KPCC and Chief Film Critic for "Variety"
Lael Loewenstein, Film Critic for KPCC
Andy Klein, Film Critic for KPCC and L.A. Times Community Paper Chain
Wade Major, Film Critic for KPCC and host for IGN’s DigiGods.com
