In celebration of the film industry’s highest honor, the Academy Awards, HDNET Movies rolls out the red carpet for its third annual movie event "And The Oscar Goes To…" with film critic Richard Roeper returning to lend his movie industry and pop culture expertise to a slate of over 50 Oscar-winning films, airing non-stop from February 1 to the night of the 91st Academy Awards: February 24.

This year, Roeper will be on-site at the home of the inaugural 1929 Oscars ceremony, The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, as he guides viewers on a cinematic odyssey that puts the spotlight on some of the most important and influential films of all time.

For over three decades, Roeper has been the leading film critic and a columnist for the Chicago Sun-Times. He rose to national prominence as the co-host of the popular series “Ebert and Roeper” alongside Roger Ebert.
