The 91st Academy Awards ceremony takes place Sunday night. We check in with two Chicago film critics ahead of the big night.
The Motion Picture Academy announces a new award category for the Oscars. Why some critics say that’s cause for concern.
This year’s Oscar picks for best picture are an unusually mixed bag of genres, including the comedy-horror film “Get Out.” Two film critics weigh in on this year’s nominees.
Oscar nominations came out earlier this week, and the “Frontline” documentary “Abacus: Small Enough to Jail” garnered a nod in the best documentary feature category. It was made by the Chicago team at Kartemquin Films.
Hollywood produced its biggest plot twist ever at the Academy Awards featuring a best picture winner with Chicago ties.
The 87th Academy Awards are on Sunday and there is substantial buzz over who will win Best Picture. From the innovative film Birdman starring Michael Keaton to Richard Linklater's work Boyhood that spanned 12 years, the competition is stiff. Who made the cut and who got snubbed? Chicago film critics Jeanne Kaplan and Ray Pride join us to discuss the year's best films.
