For the second year in a row, I was able to go inside the barricades on Hollywood Boulevard in front of the Dolby (formerly Kodak) Theatre and take part in all the hoopla as preparations continue for this Sunday's Oscars hosted by Seth MacFarlane. Unlike last year, when I learned a hard lesson about the challenges of recording, editing and uploading video on the road, this year I kept it simple, putting together an impromptu podcast with two of my very good friends, Jennifer O'Brien and Christi Andersen (I <3 them). Give a listen as we make our picks in this year's Oscar race and engage in a bit of witty banter (hey, we were entertained by it).
It's a good year to be a Disney animation fan, as the Mouse has no less than three films nominated for Best Animated Feature (Brave, Frankenweenie and Wreck-It Ralph). We're also very high on Disney's Paperman, our consensus favorite to take home the Oscar for Best Animated Short Film.
It's all part of the fun in this special edition of The Mouse Castle Lounge. Enjoy!
