Oscar Nominees From The On Point Archives

The nominees for the 2015 Academy Awards were announced this morning, and the list contained a surprising mix of — well, as NPR Monkey See blogger Linda Holmes put it, "idiosyncratic men."

But the list also included a few On Point guests and subjects from the last year, and we've collected those programs here, along with the award categories they were nominated in. Take a listen, hit the theaters/ streaming video services and get ready for the ceremony on February 7.
