Picking apart Oscar's picks

Film critics Felicia Feaster and Curt Holman rule our awards package


When Titanic director James Cameron accepted one of the 11 Academy Awards won by the 1997 blockbuster, he exulted, "I'm king of the world!"

We're much more humble in our ambitions. We don't want to rule the world -- just the Oscars. Because, as we all know by now, Oscar gets it wrong at least as much as it gets it right. And so, with all due deference to Academy voters, Creative Loafing film critics Felicia Feaster and Curt Holman -- who do vote in the Southeastern Film Critics Association's annual poll -- provide their own unique perspectives on the awards. Ellen DeGeneres will host this year's ceremonies, broadcast live on ABC at 8 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 25.

Curt and Felicia write about who will win, who should win, who got shut out, what to watch ... and much more.
