Nominees Announced for Tinseltown's Highest Honor

Pop quiz time — what famous object is 13.5 inches tall, 93 percent tin, 5 percent antimony, 2 percent copper, plated with 24 karat gold and coveted by many, many people?

Give up?

Well, of course, that would be the Oscar.

The Academy Awards nominees were formally announced Thursday. Joyce Kulhawik and Garen Daly joined Edgar B. Herwick III to predict who will go over, and who was left out.

You are listening to Boston Public Radio. I’m Edgar B Herwick III

As you have likely already heard, the Academy Oscar nominations were announced this morning....and in some ways, I think the story here is THE MERE FACT that you have likely already heard.

Guests:

Joyce Kulhawik, xxxxx?
Garen Daley, Film Critic
