THIS WEEK, The Pontificast wades through the wave of Best Picture hopefuls that has crashed on New York over the past two weeks. Not only do we take a big-picture look back at what we loved and hated at the movies in 2008, but we discuss and debate Milk, Wall-E, The Reader, Frost/Nixon, Revolutionary Road, Slumdog Millionaire, Rachel Getting Married, Doubt and the upcoming The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Click here to listen to this week’s episode now.

To send us comments, hate mail, or advice, email We promise to read and discuss your emails on the air during a future edition of the Pontificast. Also, if you’re a fast-talking newshound who happens to be in New York, we’d love to have you join us! Just send a message to the same address, and we’ll try to get you a guest spot.
