The 91st Academy Awards happen this Sunday. The ceremony itself has been plagued with controversies for months. But, by the weekend, it will be time to celebrate the past year in film.

This season featured several films that were both critical darlings and box-office hits, like "A Star Is Born" and "Black Panther," both of which are nominated for Best Picture. "Bohemian Rhapsody" was panned by critics and loved by audiences and could win big. There have been record-breaking nominations, really, really close races and great disagreement over who deserves top honors.

Thelma Adams is the author of the bestselling novels: "Bittersweet Brooklyn," "The Last Woman Standing" and "Playdate." Additionally, she is a prominent film critic – having been the in-house film critic for Us Weekly and the New York Post. Her greatest title is that she is an Oscarologist.

Joe talks to people on the radio for a living. In addition to countless impressive human "gets" - he has talked to a lot of Muppets. Joe grew up in Philadelphia, has been on the area airwaves for more than 25 years and currently lives in Washington County, NY with his wife, Kelly, and their dog, Brady.
