ReelzChannel is airing a new special featuring me and my moviegoing pal Grae Drake, Senior Editor of Rotten Tomatoes. Here’s a link to one segment in which we debate some of last year’s films, including Oscar contenders that are already available on DVD and On Demand. During the balance of the show we offer our opinions on this year’s race and who we think will win in the major categories. The show runs many times over the next two weeks and I hope you’ll check it out. Reelz is carried nationwide by DIRECTV and DISH, and many cable systems: you can learn how to find the channel by entering your zip code on the Reelz home page:
