FS #148 (WBEZ): Oscar Preview / The Dead Girl / Jesus Camp
Sunday, 18 February 2007 01:00

With Helen Mirren and Forest Whitaker virtual locks for Best Actress and Best Actor at next weekend's Oscars, you'd think that there would be little to debate on this Oscar Edition of Filmspotting. Then again, this episode marks the official end of the 2006 movie season, which means one last chance for Adam to take potshots at "Babel" and a final opportunity for Sam to remind listeners that he has no soul by hating on "Little Miss Sunshine." On this week's show, your hosts look into their patented Filmspotting crystal ball and pick the winners [and the should-winners] for Best Supporting Actor and Actress, Best Actor and Actress, Directing and Best Picture.

Plus, Listener Feedback, Massacre Theatre, and reviews of the Oscar-nominated documentary "Jesus Camp" (out now on DVD) and "The Dead Girl," the new ensemble film starring Toni Collette and Brittany Murphy,

Music by Dan Bern from the album "Breathe" courtesy of Messenger Records.

Filmspotting is brought to you by Peerflix, a fun place to get movies for less.
