MTV correspondent Joshua Horowitz led myself, VH1’s Janelle Snowden, Entertainment Weekly’s Darren Franich and Extra’s Ben Lyons in a spirited, entertaining discussion on this year’s Oscar nominees for segments that will be streaming in during the week as we lead up to the Oscar telecast.

Of course, our own Dave Karger has been covering every detail of the Oscar race in Fandango’s Awards Watch Guide, and you can hear his latest predictions in the major categories in the original video series The Frontrunners!
