On January 8, Martin Scorsese sat down with Wong Kar-wai at New York's Lighthouse Theatre to talk the latter's "The Grandmaster," shortlisted for a Best Foreign-Language Film Oscar. Incredibly, Wong has yet to receive a nomination from the Academy. But that could be rectified this coming Thursday, when the 2014 nominations list will be rolled out bright and early at 5:38am PST.

Scorsese has shown strong support of Wong's gorgeously cinematic martial arts epic, having put his name on it as a presenter for the film's North American release (this past August), with the goal of it reaching even more eyeballs stateside.

Watch Scorsese and Wong's 20-plus minute conversation below -- one grandmaster talking with another. (Our TOH! video interview with Wong is here.)
