The super-sized conclusion to our Oscars debate! In this special forty-minute episode (hey, it’s not the Academy Awards if it doesn’t run long), Chris, Éric, Frank, Yannis, and Dimitri try to predict the winners of seven Oscar categories, pick their own favourites, digress about The Insider (1999), and ask the eternal question, what is cinematography? Also, Frank and Dimitri rant about the excessive number of best picture nominees. Check out part one of our conversation, and then come back next time as we answer your mail.

Literary Correspondent: With a sordid past involving illustrations, libraries, and subtitles, Chris has reinvented himself as a specialist in the liberal insertion of puns. Like anyone working with words, he hides an embarrassing novel in his drawer but not in his drawers.

Panelist: Dedicated high school teacher by day and halfhearted salsa student by night, Eric has extensive comic book knowledge and an affinity for convoluted puns. He also quotes French films in their original language, but don't be too hard on him.

Editor in Chief / Movie Critic: When he started this site, Dimitri never thought he'd be writing blurbs about himself in the third person. In his other life, he works as a writer, translator, and editor for various publications in print and online. His motto is, "Have pen, will travel."

Guest Contributor: A life-long sci-fi fan and avid whisky connoisseur, Yannis occasionally lends his extensive knowledge of Star Wars and other geek properties to our podcast. So far, he has appeared in only a handful of episodes but has always held his liquor.

Panelist: Known as the Funky Chicken, Frank has been on the Internet since 1996. When he isn't rambling on our podcast, the cyber-librarian tames electrons for his municipal book repository. He is brought to you by the letter Q and the number three.
