Movie talk tomorrow

Do you care about the Oscars?

Are you a movie buff?

Have you seen any of the movies nominated?

Tomorrow (6:40) on the KAXE Morning Show we'll talk with the Mom of Pop Culture before she heads out to California for the Oscar show and parties - we'll also talk with University of MN film history professor Dr. Rob Silberman at 8:10. He'll tell us what to look for at the Oscars and also what to go see at your local theater or to rent on dvd.

So who will win best picture?
Michael Clayton
No Country for Old Men
There will be Blood

There are at least 2 Minnesota ties to these films - Juno is written by former Minnesotan Diablo Cody (once a guest on the Friday Morning Show) and No Country for Old Men is directed by superbrother directors Joel and Ethan Coen (never guests on the Friday Morning Show) who grew up in Minnesota.

And don't forget - a perfect pre-Oscar event is happening at the Grand Rapids Area Library - the final Film Noir of The Big Read with Steve Martin's spoof "Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid". It's at 3pm - free (both the movie AND the popcorn!).
