“Black Swan," "The King’s Speech,” “The Fighter” and much more, as we preview the Oscars.
It’s Oscar time.
Sunday night. Red carpet. Big glitter. James Franco and Anne Hathaway hosting and lots on the platter.
Ten nominations for best picture. From royal grandeur and a stutter, to crack and a fighter, to dark ballet and the birth of Facebook. "The King’s Speech" and "The Social Network" duking it out, they say, for best picture.
And a lot more movies and performances to size up. "True Grit," "The Kids are All Right," "The Fighter." Natalie Portman, Geoffrey Rush, Melissa Leo, Jesse Eisenberg.
This hour On Point: we’re diving in on the Oscars.
