Roughly Speaking with Dan Rodricks:

Over dinner at Gertrude's in Baltimore, film critics Linda DeLibero and Christopher Llewellyn Reed talk about the 2019 Oscars and four great movies you probably won't hear much about during Sunday's Academy Awards ceremony.

Take notes in case you missed them: "If Beale Street Could Talk," and "First Reformed," both victims of major Oscar snubs, and two foreign-language films: "Shoplifters," and"Capernaum." Linda and Chris handicap the major Oscar categories for us, and they debate the merits of Alfonso Cuaron's "Roma," currently considered the frontrunner for Best Picture.

Linda DeLibero directs film and media studies at Johns Hopkins University. Chris Reed is professor and chair of the department of film and moving image at Stevenson University.
