Episode 138 – Oscar Preview Special 2015

Best Picture 2015 Nominees

It’s our annual Oscar Preview Special! We make our picks for Best Picture and the rest of the categories in this year’s Academy Awards. Will Foxcatcher win Best Picture? Will David Oyelowo win Best Actor? Will Clint Eastwood win Best Director? The answer to all of those is “no” because none of those are nominated for those categories. But don’t worry, we’ll tell you who is nominated and who will win because we know everything!*

*Actually we don’t know everything and are making only somewhat educated guesses. It’ll be fun, though.
